Jimp again huh? If I’m not there (because I’m not sure if I will be or not) this important question must be asked:

What is the progress on the fire breathing office chair kongpanion?

What happened to your loyalty to Stabby?

I have to fite jmtb02 to get him on the list. He is already made and everything. Jimp is the one responsible for drawing the fbock (Bad acronym) Fire Breathing Office Chair Kongpanion.

One day Jimp will make it. It will be a great day.

Topic: Kongregate / Petition for no more dog kongpanions

Evaluating this petition we’ve decided to cancel all normal Kongpanions and just make Dogpanions from here on out. Thanks for your feedback!

No that’s not true. We just really like dogs, that why you’ve seen so many. We have a lot of other animals coming up.

Topic: Kongregate / [Live Event] Kongregate Live with Tony Lavelle! (date updated: 3/6/15)

Yep, totally locked myself out of the room. That happened.

We have small rooms we use for meetings or recording these events + KongregateTV. For some reason the room locks (even though its a room we would NEVER lock), so it ended up somehow locking itself. There was panic because it was 10 minutes before event start and poor Tony was all alone on the live chat that was ready to start.

Luckily we found the key.

You know, I was actually far too disappointed that the flavor text (in this case, mayor of blubber) didn’t mention egg men at all…

I didn’t want to rip-off lyrics, I felt like the play-on words in the name was enough

Cool lets iron out the confusion!

Jimp is the artist of the Kongpanions. He makes everything turbodorbs. We work together on what the future Kongpanions will be.

Jmtb02 (me) runs the Kongpanion program and helped it come to fruition (a few different people work on Kongpanions though!)

We found UStream to be a good solution for what we were trying to accomplish

Hopefully not too many people miss it, since the time is a little bit awkward. Will there be a video of the stream after or a summary?

Yes and I’m sure if you send me questions ahead of time I can get them in the Q/A too.

You guys are taking this too serious. Really, you are all arguing because a virtual pet resembles a crow. We are hitting the bottom here.

It’s the principle – Kongregate folded to someone that threw a temper tantrum until they got what they wanted. They’re setting a really terrible precedence that’s a slippery slope.

Did someone throw a temper tantrum? I just remember someone posting on my wall asking for one, in the same way someone asked for a turtle (and its coming up!). We take requests!

Topic: Sandbox Hero / * LATEST BUILD * Build 63.1 - Bug fixes and more!

Hey everyone! Lots of bug fixes this round, thanks so much to everyone who posted so many requests and bug reports in the forums, I’ve gotten around to fixing quite a few.

Bug Fixes
• Ghost run sorting has been fixed server-side, it may take a few runs for the sorting to self-filter but it should clear up!
• Typing in text boxes would trigger shortcut keys, but no longer!
• Kongpanions were showing my [jmtb02] Kongpanions instead of your kongpanions, a leftover glitch from my Debug build
• Voting was accidentally turned off for some users
• Persistent recently played list! Now it lists all maps you’ve recently played
• Anti-spam limits removed for map resubmits
• No more sound effect for chest opening if muted
• Level name truncation fixed in editor/publish
• Stats formatting okay now

Feature Changes
• New Kongpanion page dedicated to picking your Kongpanion
• New stats page giving me more space to add more stats later
• New settings page giving more options on how to control your game, including hiding ghosts / no-votes / etc
• New preloading screen
• New hub sidebar
• New connection screen colors and formatting

Revisions
• Build 63.1 – Public version
• Build 63 – Internal build

Topic: Sandbox Hero / Build 62.4 - Ghost Run BETA

Hey everyone! Sorry the latest build took so long, it was quite the undertaking. There was a lot that went into the ghost system and we’re still tweaking it to get it just right! With multiplayer systems now in place, I’m proud to announce…

GHOST RUNS! – Ghost runs will allow you to see the top runners in each of maps.

Please let me know if you have any issues! This build is 62.4, because 62.1 – 62.3 were internal builds for testing.

Bug Fixes
• Timer doesn’t start automatically at the beginning of the game.
• Several memory issues fixed regarding loading maps.
• Some dashing issues been tinkered with (no dash on certain key combinations)

Feature Changes
• Ghost runs active! The top three runs and the most recent three runs are stored, so you should see up to seven players on the screen. Top three runs are currently only determined by fastest time. This feature is still in-progress but I wanted to get something out to the players sooner than later.
• Rollover feature added to show other player’s stats so you can better judge how to beat them.
• Maps no longer autostart, you must press a key to get going.
• R key now restarts the map.
• Recently Played list now follows all recently played maps, not just the ones you completed.
• Kongpanion loading screen is smart enough to show you all Kongpanions now, including the ones you don’t have.

Revisions
• Build 61 – Ghost runs functioning properly for the first time!
• Build 61.1 – Ghost runs now work in Pure Mode
• Build 61.2 – Ghost runs are now displaying in the play menus
• Build 61.3 – Ghost runs deleted upon user resubmitting their designs
