Topic: General Gaming / looking for spectromancer:gathering of power tips

are you playing for the badge or just for playing? i just did a speed run on vanguard with normal difficulty with no problems. maybe it’s the class you’re using? i always thought mech and goblins were the best decks. for my run this was my deck:

wall of fire, flame wave, inferno, elemental
meditation, apostate, golem, turtle
faerie, thunder, phoenix, tornado
healer, nature’s, elemental, master
overtime, riflemen, cannon, cannonade

the point is to only stack 1 or 2 elements with creatures and use others as spells or backup. and every card should play a role not simply as a filler. you are better off skipping a turn to get a stronger creature.

with my deck you would spam out riflemen at a cost of 2 points frequently since they do 4 dmg for each new card that comes out. if you have 3 riflemen out thats 12 dmg before the enemy card even takes a turn. throw in turtle to counter any high attack creatures since they reduce dmg by 5 and after 4-5 turns you will survey the field and throw out phoenix vs the strongest creature since you’ll have 10 fire points by now. the ideal hand is 1 master healer, 1 phoenix (only because i hate matches that i win with all phoenix), and any other combination. usually if the match is long and i have 20 fire points ill throw out fire elemental or if enough for earth i’ll throw that out but usually they never get that far. with riflemen/master healer/phoenix combo you can win rather easily. overtime is also over powered since it cost 0 points basically you get 2 points per turn if you have nothing to play meaning every 4 turns you can cast cannonade to deal 19 dmg which is about how many turns it takes for AI to throw a strong card out

yeah badges as in make sure you have the kong APIs ready in game so when they want to give your game badges they can. also, upon release of the game i suggest to actively look at the feedback players are giving you and if possible respond to the critical ones and make updates. please see example sentry knights, ratings will always improve when players see the developer is actively engaged with the audience. at least for the first couple weeks or a month i think

What browser/OS are you using? Chrome stores its files in a different location (see this thread for details). Also make sure you have Hidden Files/Folders shown, otherwise you won’t see anything.

you are right i forgot about that. i’m not in private browsing mode but do have my settings to dump all temp/cookies on exit

Topic: General Gaming / Mud & Blood 2 save files

if nothing is there now it means it’s already gone. the newer versions of flash since I think 8.0 or 9.0 started putting the saved files into temp folders and whenever you close your browser the files would be deleted. the only way now to “save” your games is to manually go to the same directory that you list and copy out the .sol files before you close your browser. normally for kong the files would be under directory chat_kong or something like that after #sharedobjects.

if the game dev is good he would put the file under the game name making it easier for you to find the right file like mnb2.sol but sometimes thats not always the case. if you play a lot of games in one browser session you might have some trouble locating the correct file you want to save

Topic: Kongregate / "Contact Us"

I’m not saying you’re not entitled to the 200 Kreds, I just want to give my opinion on the matter. If you read the 2nd paragraph I think the 2nd bullet should not read 200 kreds but 2x points for badge of the day.

“twice the PowerUp Rewards points each time you earn a Badge of the Day.”

It’s clearly a typo/mistake but they should fix the error and also give you the free kreds

Wow.
I do understand that I should not expect too many intelligent posts on the internet, but this post is so stupid, it’s not even funny anymore.

so let me understand this, unity is used for playing games. personally i only play on kong so if unity is used on other popular sites than yes kong forcing it on us was an incorrect statement.

now if my everyday life consists of 9-5 game time okay i agree must install unity to have access to all the options for gaming out there. when it’s not then there’s a choice of how much crap i want to install and unity isn’t one of them. if it’s that important i’m sure kong would make it mandatory to have unity but for now it hasn’t gotten to that point

unity is forced upon us by kong which wouldn’t be so bad if we need unity for other things. sadly we dont so we dont bother with installing more crap we dont need.

i dont know the exact problem with your game but im sure if you can build it without unity you’ll have a big jump in games played and more ratings to better reflect the quality of your game. good luck

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / My game got deleted? again?

this is a flash problem and not a game/kong problem. if you recently updated your flash then you are hit with this issue. the new version places all .sol files (saved files) in a temporary folder which when you close your browser be it ff/ie/etc then that folder is deleted and the “memory” is released back to your computer to speed up your system.

if you updated your flash and noticed all of your saved games for all games are suddenly gone there is nothing you can do, they are gone. if this is your case you must now manually copy & paste your save file before closing your browser to a folder you can make for game saves. you can find your .sol by searching in your HD for .sol, if it doesnt show then you have to enable showing hidden files because these are considered system files by flash.

generally the path falls under something like this xxxxx being your login name for your computer not for kong (xxxxx\appdata\….)

Topic: General Gaming / Has Anyone Legitimately Gotten the Hard Badge on Turbo Golf?

I think the gap between med and hard is due to the fact that a vast majority of people lost their saved games one too many times to retry again for the hard.

I’ve got to 360 on first 9 once but lost that save game and haven’t been in the mood to regrind that game ever again. But you don’t need to max everything to achieve 350 is my opinion. My tip is to upgrade driver (I bought 2.5k club), putter (again 2.5k, also putter increases shot skill which slows down the power gauge), shoes (2.5k) and thats pretty much it. I got 360 with these. You want to drive far and run fast, don’t buy shoes or balls that add to ball bounch since you don’t want the ball to bounce but hit and stop asap. Ball spin is a much better powerup on some holes vs 10% power. Give it a try and you’ll see. First hole you can uplift, spin to the hole and dead ball hole in one easily. The only times where ball spin doesnt work is like the zombie one or water one where the spin is negated by hitting an obstacle.

Basically I’ve come to the conclusion that you need to finish -2 of what the hole states. Par 3 need 1, par 4 max 2, etc. And don’t follow the every hole needs to be 36 sec advise because most par 3s you can finish in under 20 but a par 5 might take you 40+

Topic: Off-topic / zombies who would win 600,000 zombies vs 30,000 soilders from all over the world with machine guns and m60s

i assume they are called zombies because they can’t be killed with one shot hence they are not “people.” if they can’t be killed in one shot then the number is going to be greater than the 20 to 1 ratio you project. it might look like 600k but could well be 100k for the effort it would take to bring one down.

and no, if we are fighting zombies i highly doubt it’s 30k soldiers. soldiers and gov would’ve taken care of the problem. 30k would be conscripts of whoever is still alive including children and women

Topic: General Gaming / Papa's Games

I would assume the thought process goes something like this:

Does game meet basic req? (rating/popularity) Yes
If req is met, should it get badges? Yes, all developers sponsored or independent would like their work recognized.
Is it a long or short game? Long game

Since they no longer give impossible badges for grinding (they used to, check some of the early impossible badges, I believe even one of Papa’s impossible falls into this) let’s give a hard badge for grind. But wait, we can’t just give an easy and hard right? Okay throw in a medium. And there’s your 3 badges

Just be grateful that the hard badge isn’t a true grind badge. Wingeria takes about 26-27 days depending on how good you are at the game for the hard badge. Some of the badges for other Papa’s games deserve to be upgraded to one level higher

Topic: General Gaming / Paladog: need general tips

you should have no problem with the first 2 “worlds” by simply maxing the archer bunny. upgrade aura that increases # of times your units trigger the bonus action and spam bunny. the bonus action = fire arrows, will knock back enemies making the ghost not really relevant or in danger of slipping past the front line. there’s really no use for the maces least not for me so far but i’m stuck on 2-21 which is the 5 lines of defense type stage. but i think my idea is consistent with what others are doing as you can see in the comments of the game there are a lot of mentions like broken “2” key or only need bunny to win. i’ve finished most stages within 2 mins by bunny spam. the only downside to this is you dont really get a lot of money/gold as reward is based on how many monsters you kill and not how fast you beat the stage

Topic: General Gaming / Paladog 2-21

For some reason I can’t beat this level. Maybe someone who’s beat it can shine the light on this. I always have trouble with the stupid 5 lines of defense levels. I’ve unlocked up to the 4th unit which is the kang and have maxed upgrade the rat and archer. And here is where I’m stuck on how to proceed with the level, what do I spawn against the red devils? Rats are too weak and the bear at 30 MP cost takes too long to take care of all 5 lines. The spam archers trick doesn’t work here even at full upgrade. Any advice is appreciated

ah ok that explains why. that should be put into the info/desc for the game as those in lower levels will immediately drop +1 enhancements in act 1 and not see any increase in the stat thinking its a glitch or just bad gaming

Topic: General Gaming / Monsters Den Chronicles

Few questions on the game.

1) What does the # in the item description mean? Like 2/6 campaign plate. 3: +3 strength, 5: 6:. I’m assuming it has something to do with the type of equipment so if I equip 6 types of campaign items??? I’ll be able to get the full bonus from that item? If this is the case, how are items counted towards the amount? Do all items have to have campaign in the name?

2) When dropping enhancements do we need to now be specific for it to work? Meaning if I want to increase damage in a warrior I can only drop strength enhancements into a weapon for the damage to increase. I’ve noticed I drop strength in armor and damage remains the same and it shows no additional strength bonus when hovering over damage.

Topic: General Gaming / Spectromancer: Gamer's Pack Campaign

Thanks, after not succeeding for 3-4 tries I ended up trying the mechanical deck you mentioned. I still lost that lord of air battle once but everything after that was cake. I’ve only tried the hermit and mechanical but from what I can tell the mechanical deck is way over powered.

It’s also very annoying to win a fight and receive an award for a card only to not have it available to you because it’s race restricted. There should be an * on some of the cards that tells you it’s not available for your race. When I was the hermit I was looking forward to using a powerful earth deck with the earth elemental but no such luck since earth elemental is not available to the mad hermit race even after you win it in a fight

Topic: General Gaming / Spectromancer: Gamer's Pack Campaign

Hmm I guess it’s all dependent on your initial race? I picked the mad hermit and I have no clue what you are talking about. I have no mechanical deck. All my cards are fire/water/air/earth/forest.

And yes I’m on the first map still, are there more maps to the campaign? And the final opponent on the first map is the Lord of Air who spawns 2 Air Spirits that I can’t work my way around.

Topic: General Gaming / Spectromancer: Gamer's Pack Campaign

Anyone who can give me some advice on how to complete the campaign? I’ve sort of hit a roadblock on the final stage and haven’t been able to find a good combination of cards to win.

Also, does the cards you get correspond with the race you initially choose? I won the earth elemental card but it’s not showing up in my custom deck list. Thanks

Topic: General Gaming / I'd greatly appreciate it if you follow my blog.

ok i checked it out and here’s my 2 cents. on first glance the page is too dark, to be effective you should probably try white back with black text. there’s a reason why most “serious” webs/blogs/etc have this combo because having black back with white text makes your eyes squint to read the text.

secondly, if you plan to promote it in kong forum you should do some posts on kong games. whether it be reviews, walkthroughs, videos, etc. i only looked at the title of your posts and didnt click on any to read further because none of them pertain to kong’s game or kong related material
