Topic: Collaborations / Game without a plot

Originally posted by isonno:

Actually, you can also upload Shockwave games – unfortunately not Java games, though. But now that I think about it… Jagex uploaded Runescape, didn’t they? That’s in Java. I don’t know how they made that work – I’m guessing they just made an outside website that opens inside the swf – but if it’s too difficult to convert your game into Flash or Shockwave, that might be a way to go.

The downside is, you wouldn’t be able to have any form of stat tracking, I don’t think. Plus, even though it was allowed for Runescape, I don’t know if they’d let your average game designer put a Java game on here… that right may be reserved for big companies that pay Kong lots of money. :P

dark: yeah… med badge for completion, another for all 49 sprites. probably. and, yeah… first time through i only got 48 because i missed a lights on sprite on the bridge. gotta get those 10 before the lights go out, then the other 39 afterwards.

Medium badge just for completion? Are you kidding me? This is as easy as You Have To Burn The Rope… just a few minutes longer.

I don’t think you can. They’re probably just dead. Well… no, they’re just somewhere getting nibbled on by monsters, but not actually getting hurt at all. :P

Awesome! I was going to make a game like this, but I don’t have the right Flash program to use AS3 scripts, so I can’t use the API that lets you grab people’s stats off of Kong. :(

Anyway, Idea: Shoop Da Whoop Mouth, with Lazer Chargin/Firin/Off options. And a set of Weegee parts(Hat, nose w/moustache, the soul piercing eyes, etc.)

Also, you should be able to sell back your items for equal points, if you can’t already.

Wait… so you want us to test… a possible impossible badge? (brain explodes)

Hehe, but anyway, sure, I’ll try to help. I’m only on… ermm… can’t remember what rank, but it’s both pretty high and probably nowhere near chief of staff :P

Topic: Kongregate / Random Rant: Stop rating games lower because they don't have badges yet, idiots -.-

Glad to see I’m not alone in being bothered by this… though I agree too that sometimes a game being ridiculously hard or annoyingly musical with no mute, deserves a lower rating. But those are things the game designer can actually DO something about, unlike badges.

And Carados, thank you so much for reminding me of whispers. I had been trying to think of a way to tell people not to vote like that, in a way that they might actually read… game comments they’d probably never see, and while it’s therapeutic to complain about it on the forums, who knows if the people will ever look at that, either. But whispers might actually work. Thanks. :D

Topic: Kongregate / Random Rant: Stop rating games lower because they don't have badges yet, idiots -.-

Sorry to just be coming in here and complaining, but I just need to get this off my chest, it’s been bugging me for quite a while and it’ll probably be seen more if I post it here instead of just occasionally posting in comments.

I am SO SICK of seeing people posting comments on games like “needs badges, 3/5 until it has badges”, or anything else implying you’ll give a higher rating if a game gets badges. Hey! Morons! The game designers don’t put the badges there! Greg does! I’m sure they’d love to make badges themselves, but they can’t, so don’t harass them for it!

Voting lower because a game doesn’t have badges won’t help it get badges at all – if anything, it makes it less likely, since a game’s more likely to get badges if it has a higher rating. So for crap’s sake, don’t give a game a lower rating than you normally would just because it doesn’t have badges! You’re just making things worse and looking like a retard!

Sorry to vent, just… ignorant people make me really angry sometimes. >_<

Topic: Game Programming / Flash game that can get user stats from Kongregate?

Oh. So you can get the player stats, but only in the version of Flash which I don’t have.

Well, darn.

Topic: Game Programming / Flash game that can get user stats from Kongregate?

Hi, I’ve been wondering something – is it possible for a game to retrieve a player’s stats such as username, points, badges, etc. from Kongregate, and display that information in the game? I know I’ve seen something that’s not affiliated with Kong but is able to retrieve these sort of stats, though I think it was a web page, not a flash. Does anyone know how this sort of thing would be accomplished? I have a lot of ideas for games which would use points or badges for something…

Yeah, I guess I am kinda thinking the “they-did-it-why-can’t-I” mentality… oh well. I guess if I did it I could just exempt myself from awards or something.

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

Nah, I’m not going to make a game that just counts how long you listen to a song over and over. I was thinking of doing a side-scrolling shooter thing vaguely based off of a Dragonforce song, with gameplay going along with the flow of the music – like in Music Bounce or Streamline or something. I just think that would be really awesome with a Dragonforce song. :P

And even if it’s illegal/against Kong rules/whatever, there’s quite a few games with “real” music on here that haven’t been removed… mine would just be more obvious, I guess.

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

On a somewhat related note, is it okay if we post something in a topic of ours just to bump it if no one’s responded for a long while?

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

Glompee: Yeah, sort of like that.

Tasselfoot: Then how come those games are still on here? There’s at least two RickRoll games that I know of, and one of those was made by BenV, even.

Plus, plenty of other games probably have copyrighted music in them, and no one cares. Drunken Masters has a remix of “The Final Countdown”, for example… the only difference in my hypothetical games would be that the use of the song is much more obvious.

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

Well the thing is, it wouldn’t be like SCGMD4, where you can just find other music to replace copyrighted music… the game would actually be about the song , so having a different song playing than the one you’re making it for would be really lame.

And like I said, there’s a few “RickRoll” games on here that are pretty much just the music video and nothing else – did they have to pay Rick Astley for the right to make a game about his song?

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

…Why would it cost money?

To get permission from the musicians?

I doubt anyone got Rick Astley’s permission… :P

Topic: Kongregate / Question about music in games...

Would it be acceptable to upload a game we based on copyrighted music? And not just, you know, based on it, but actually using the music in the background and having the action play out against it? Because I had a few songs in mind that I’d like to make games for, but I dunno if I’d even be allowed to put them on Kongregate or not.

I would assume I could, since there’s even a few games on Kongregate that do nothing but count how many times you’ve listened to Rick Astley singing “Never Gonna Give You Up”, but I just want to make sure before I spend all the time making the game.

Oooh, this sounds pretty cool, I’d love to help. Sign me up. =D

Edit: Hmm… looks like I’m about 215th or so to post… that’s definitely a better chance than when I’ve posted on page 200, haha. How many people usually get let into these at a time? 25? 50? 100? 200? 215, maybe? :3

I remember signing up somewhat early… not too early, but at least quite a while ago, at maybe less than 250 total posts… I guess I didn’t get in for some reason D:

Lol, I guess I was thinking of something totally different… I only signed up about four pages of posts ago ;_; That’s still almost a month though. Oh well. I’ll just play it when it gets released, I guess. :(

Topic: General Gaming / Yes, another Runescape topic. No, it's not the same stuff as always.

Haha, nice one Obeliskos… and really, even if most of the haters voted “fairly”, they’d still give it at most a 3. So the game would maybe have a 3.5 rating or so. Still not enough to justify being on the front page.

Topic: General Gaming / Yes, another Runescape topic. No, it's not the same stuff as always.

Really Carados…? Are you sure it wasn’t just a busy hour? I mean, I could be off as well, seeing as I don’t know when during the day Runescape or Solar Chiefs were uploaded, so one could actually have been on for less time than it seemed. Still, even if it met the criteria for hot new games, in terms of either having a high rating or high gameplays, it would’ve been pushed off by now anyhow. So the fact that it hasn’t, even when it’s equal or lesser to games that came out AFTER it, is very suspicious.

And I have a feeling quite a few of those “gameplays” were simply complainers about Runescape checking the precise score every once in a while, since you have to actually go to the game (therefore “playing” it) to see the real score, as opposed to looking at the graphic on the front page and saying “Eh, that looks like about two and a half.” I know I for one checked a bunch of times, especially when it was falling rapidly towards a 2.0 rating. So, even though it’s probably not a super-high amount, I’m sure a modest number of those gameplays were just rating-checks.

Topic: General Gaming / Yes, another Runescape topic. No, it's not the same stuff as always.

Hmm, I suppose the “well-known game” could be a factor in it, too… but it’s not like being well known is always a good thing. Look at Hitler, he’s well known too.

And no, I’m not comparing Runescape to Hitler. That’d be silly. I’m just saying that simply because something is well-known does not make it better than other things.
