I recieved the game as from a sponsor (sorry , I have to disclose the name). But I’m in the process of contacting the developer.

Topic: General Gaming / Emperius.com - Game Permission

Well i bet they started like me, I really wish i could sponsor every game i come along, but my revenue mocks at that fact. Thanks for ALL the advice though, I understand youy guys are vets, so i have open ears. Some games were from my sponsors also. And I doubt that addictinggames and armorgames buys every flash game on their site. I also hope this isn’t all about money guys…i invested probably more than I’ll ever make, and that is because as a developer, it was hard for me to get exposure, I’d just like to return the favor.

There hosted on my site because I downloaded them from Free games sections or got them from game packs with disclaimers, or asked my sponsors if i could host some games. I’m doing nothing illegal, just displaying flash developer’s work

Topic: General Gaming / Emperius.com - Game Permission

I understand, that’s what I like about kong better than any other flash portal. We’re all here to support each other and we can relate because we are flash developers. I will ensure that I’ll take legal measure to put up a game. Thanks for looking out guys, sorry for snapping ;)

Topic: General Gaming / Emperius.com - Game Permission

I am also contacing developers AS WE SPEAK. I don’t understand why everyone wants to shut me down. I just wanted to host a flash portal where I can display the works of talented flash developers I am not a lazy webmaster, and I am making sure everything i am doing is within the rule book. I don’t see anyone trying to shut down armorgames or addicting games? I am working on a developers section, its on the MAIN NAV, the swf at the top, the really huge banner. I want to help developers display their work, I too am a developer, and i know this would really help. I know i am a young site, but I hope to gain the community’s respect through fair policies to flash developers.

Emperius.com

To Developers of Kong, I have various flash games on Emperius.com. I understand that permission is needed to DISPLAY your flash games on my site. First of all, all games on Emperius.com were either downloaded from numerous sponsors free-games section, received from my own sponsors, submitted by members, or bought from game packs. Ive invested hundreds of dollars in the site, and the ads are to pay for webhosting. If you are a developer, and would like for me to remove your flash game, please notify me at:

john@emperius.com

my goal for Emperius was to display all developers’ hard work, and get there games noticed by the community. I sought to only further your works because that is what you all deserve. I want Emperius to be a place for flash developers, as I am working on a developer interview section, tutorial section, and games review section. You all have the rights to your work at any time, and unlike other portals, I respect those rights to the utmost. If you do not wish for your game to be on my flash portal, please notify me.

I’m a flash developer as well Arcane, and my sponsors allow my games to be on others sites. If the developer or foremost, the sponsors would like for me to remove the games i’d do so because they retain the rights. But if the flash portal lets me download the game (i.e. armorgames) that means they’re allowing me to have the game (with their splash screen of course) hosted on my site, or If I were to download game packs for $$. I don’t mean any harm at all Arcane, just content for visitors that would also benefit the flash developers and the sponsors exposure.

For those interested in being editors, here’s the breakdown.

Basically it’s kind of like the same job as a moderator has on kong except with more freedom. When you are an editor for Emperius Blog, you are allowed to post game reviews, your articles, tutorials, stories, etc. Basically flash related content. I’m only getting a select few, maybe like a team of 4 or 5. You must be a person who likes to write and has a passion for it. If you are interested, contact me at john@emperius.com along with 1 full flash game review (and a score out of 5 for it). You must also register as a member of Emperius. So apply now to be part of the Emperius Blog Team!

john@emperius.com for review submissions.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate's Star Virus Outbreak!

whats funny is that my mountain falls series are doing alot better over there than here lol,

NEWGROUNDS:

Mountain Falls: 3.42/5, Mountain Falls X: 3.58/5

KONGREGATE:

Mountain Falls: 2.79stars, Mountain Falls X: 2.58stars

From what I’m seeing its practically 1 whole star different. Wow! Now the reasons why NG games have better ratings than Kong’s: 1) Newgrounds bases ratings on a 10 scale, so ratings can have higher averages. 2) Kong has people that expect more out every flash developer, thus they rate harsher. 3) Games that are developed are appreciated more at NG than Kong, because Newgrounders realize how much dedication it takes to make a flash game. 4) Kong has more haters and NG is more real..?(haha)

Whatever the reason, and there’s probably ALOT of em, the problem we have is here and not at Newgrounds! Jude your freakin right, its adamn epidemic. I have the feeling that games aren’t as appreciated as it is at Newgrounds. Why? That, I can’t answer, hopefully someone can ;)

As a flash developer, I realize how hard it is to develop games and so I am more lenient when I rate games. Mountain Falls X took 2 months to make. MF1 took 2 and a half weeks…and MFX compared to MF1 (to a majority of Kongregators) is cr-p.
Maybe its just that non flash developers on Kong don’t know how hard it is to create a decent game. Or maybe MFX really is Cr-p? haha i dunno but what we can do is take action and not stimulate the Star Virus. I’m an advocate of the ASV (anti-Star-Virus) and will encourage others….

On the other hand, this has been proven not to work…anyone can think of another way?

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate's Star Virus Outbreak!

Yeah, I’ve seen alot of people leaving comments like “I can’t get the damn badge! 1/5! Aduurrr!!”.
But Star Virus is evident all over Kong. One thing i agree with, and that is a big problem, is that the 1 star is too powerful. And we can we do about? Nothing really lol, its up to the Kong Admins, but we can take measures from turning Kong into a zombie fest of Star Virus. I mean, if you have time to rate a game, just leave some feedback, trust me, It really helps (that is if it is constructive) an it’ll prevent more “cr/-\ppy” games from being uploaded. All of us could try it for a bit and we’ll see if we can eradicate the virus that has plagued Kong!

Yeha it reall is difficult to make a decent flash game that EVERYONE likes an props to the developers that did. But never been infected with Star Virus? Cmon flash developers i know some of you have. Have your games ever been rated 1 star and then you start rating everyone elses games 1 stars? Sucks but thats how the virus is spread.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate's Star Virus Outbreak!

everyone that rates a game, should leave a reason why, not only will it “prevent” more games like that being uploaded, but then the herds will follow and do likewise, thus irradicating the Star Virus. Someone has to do it, and we can do it. I;m tired of seriously OFF ratings, and if your gonna leave a 1, please leave a reason why.

Yeah, some people don’t even play to get the feel, thats absolutely true. I mean how many of you developers felt jipped on the rating scales?
