Do you mean find CHARLESing’s submission, for the medal ‘Free is always better’? If yes then it’s been there a while, number 13 in the post :)
If you mean something else though, please let me know.

The issue, i think, is that the name of the medal is “name the very first sub” when you don’t have the medal yet. It changes to “Free is always better” when you earn it.

Ah excellent, I’m always happy to get the name of pre-awarded awards, just not willing to re-set game so peoples input is invaluable.

D’OH how embarrassing! Of all the ones for me to have a bad typo xD Thanks for pointing that out to me, and you’ve been credited for the Favourite Website answer.

Interesting what you said about the character limit, that’s how I thought it worked too and have no idea why it’s not working for Slothrop. Hopefully it will just click eventually :) Would be interested to hear if others are experiencing problems with this medal.

Sorry to hear this, I really don’t know what else to suggest :( Maybe PM the Dev, others might be having the same problem and if not, if it’s a bug then you’ve alerted them to it :)
Good luck, hope you get it sorted soon.

I can’t remember exactly, I just held ‘a’ down until I got it. I know it took a little while but it wasn’t anything crazy like over a minute or something. Come to think of it, I typed in a little gibberish before holding a letter down. Maybe it needs more than one type of character? If it doesn’t work with 1 key after holding it down for ages, but does with different letters, then please let me know so I can specify i in the description.

Thanks again for your input – you were correct but the spelling needed changing to ‘supa hot fire’. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I wouldn’t have got it without that search term to go on so you’ve been credited for it.

Also, I already have the Gibberish one in the post. Are you certain that this is the original name of the medal? I have what you’ve typed, but that’s only after it’s been earned. If it is indeed the same before it’s earned, then I’ll edit it in.

Thanks a million for doing this.

You are absolutely correct, thankyou for pointing it out to me. For some reason (and I have very poor formatting knowledge) when the < and the 3 are put directly together, it cut off anything else before the linebreak after ‘I’ on that sentence.

So you don’t have to go through the list again, you need to type (without ’ marks)
‘I <3 Free Stuff’
And you’re most welcome, that means a lot to me :)

Topic: General Gaming / Idle Recruit Secret Medals


Firstly,------------------------ :P !SPOILERS! :P ------------------------

UPDATE: In the event that new secrets are added, I won't be reading comments on this thread unless I get stuck. This is because I like discovering them for myself and want to avoid spoilers.

Whew, okay, here we go - here is my attempt at trying to get all the secret achievement awards from CHARLESing's 'Idle Recruit' answers in one place. You can find the game here: http://www.kongregate.com/games/CHARLESing/idle-recruit

Password: YOU CAN DOO EET

Why? : I've noticed a lot of people struggling with these, and the answers tend to crop up for only 1 or a few secrets in comments on the game. I do not consider this thread as cheating or spoilers, but as a last resort for people like myself who simply can't get the last few, or are not understanding a reference/are not sure how to work it out. I decided to make this because I thought, 'Hey, I'm part of the problem!' when I kept trying to look up the answers and was getting frustrated at not finding any.

DISCLAIMERS:
- I had to make this from memory and the completed achievements I have now. The appearance and names of them change dramatically sometimes upon earning them, so you may have to do a little mental translating as you read them!
- Speaking of appearances, the 'How To's' of some of these achievements may be altered if the developer alters the UI etc. If this is the case you may have to do some hunting/ask in the comments if you just can't find it at all.
- I made this after what I felt was a thorough search for similar topics on Kong and elsewhere, so I thoroughly apologise if this has been done before/better before.
- If it appears that I am over-explaining something, then please don't take it as dumbing-down. I do this so that those that may not get a reference for any reason, or the answer hasn't 'clicked' with them, can see the processes behind working it out.
- Last but not least, this thread is in no way affiliated with the developer CHARLESing. I felt it would be a lot fairer on them to just make this without input so that they don't have any waffle to deal with, and that if something is wrong with the answers then it will purely be my fault.

-KNOWN-

These are not in order, they are only numbered so I can keep track.
1. Cl|ck |t - At the very top of the screen, click one of the lines separating options. Eg. Between: Credits | Reset Boosts

2. ERMAGHERD - You need to type in (not including ' marks) 'MERSHED' (This is from a meme, you're basically saying 'Oh my god, mashed potatoes' :D )

3. Cool Cursor Bro - Enable the cursor in the options menu if you haven't already. Reload the page, and during the pre-loader (the page where it says 'start muted' etc.) and go to town on wiggling the mouse around for a while. Unsure of duration, just go crazy :) You will not know if you've earned this medal until you load the game

4. Contribute to the Game - You now do not necessarily have to directly contribute a recruit to the game, simply click 'Suggest a Recruit, Earn Free Multiplier!' at the top of the screen, then click 'Click for Free Medal' at the bottom of the pop-up menu.

5. Kongregate Bonus - Simply play the game on Kongregate.

6. Blombo/what's on his head - Looking up the characters name will give you images of someone wearing headphones :) (I can't remember the exact spelling requirement for this, so play around with it if (without ' marks) 'headphones' doesn't work)

7. No Cheating! - You need to type in (without ' marks) 'sv_cheats 1'

8. It's all over CHARLESing's profile - Looking at their Kong profile you may notice that a date frequently appears. You need to type it in exactly as you see it, Eg. (without ' marks) 'Jun. 16, 2011' It is important to notice that there is spacing between JunDOT 16COMMA 2011

9. CHARLESing's First Comment - You need to type in (without ' marks) '#YOLT'

10. Newsworthy - Check out the game news by clicking the little waving guy in the bottom-right corner (the one you can customise with your hats)

11. Badger Badger - You need to type in (without ' marks) : 'mushroom'

12. Looking good - You need to claim a profile pic by going to the 'Hats' tab and clicking 'Claim Free Avatar!' under the 'Claim Free Hat' button. Don't worry, you don't have to use/apply it in order to get the medal, just claim it.

13. Name the very first sub - Thanks to preske for reminding me of the original title.You find this out by finding CHARLESing's recruit submission on Kongregate. You need to type in (without ' marks) and there is NO space between the heart, for some reason it messes with the formatting when I put the < and the 3 together: 'I < 3 Free Stuff'

14. Just Looking - If you didn't manually do the above, simply look at the user content for the game. (On the side panel: Click the GAME tab next to the CHAT tab, it should be the second box down)

15. Look at the Credits - I can't remember the original name of this achievement, so simply look at the credits which you will find in the menus at the very top of the screen.

16. Knowledge++ - It's possible you will have this already just by playing the game, if not, you need to complete the tutorial. If you closed it upon joining, just click the question mark in the top left-hand corner.

17. Typed Max Characters - Can't remember original name, so simply just fill in the text field where you would guess a recruits name. (I just held down a letter 'til I got it ;) )

18. Linux Command - You need to type in (without ' marks) 'rm -rf /'

19. Hey there Jimmy Junior - Thanks goes to 1337al for contributing this one: You need to type in (without ' marks) 'tina'

20. Don't do it - Thanks goes to 1337al for contributing this one as well: You need to type in the number one Eg. (without ' marks) '1' As you will see this is a humorous continuation from 'Promised to rate 5 stars' It all makes sense now! ;)

21. Check the .sol file - Thanks to 1337al for giving the proper wording of this one. If you cannot locate the .sol file, and it's highly recommended that you do for backing up your saves (I recommend this Kong thread, this is where I first learnt where to find them :) http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/22793-where-are-kongregate-save-files-located) then you need to type in, (without ' marks): 'moremoneymoreproblems.sol'

22. It'll save your life someday! - Thanks to lczagas for contributing this one. You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'hamboning' This is a meme/reference that I just wasn't getting, so I went to look it up. Hamboning is, of course, the art of using ones body to create music (usually through slapping, thumping) but the 'It'll save your life someday!' references this: (I had never heard of this before, but I recommend the video, it gave me the giggles) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjoxo8ONw3Y

23. Spent 5 Hours Debugging - Thanks to kernschatten for reminding me that I had missed this one - You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'break' The reason for this secret is quite funny (in a sad way) so have a read of its description after you've earned it ;)

24. Tina Tina Tiny Tina - You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'tina the talking tabby'

25. This is 69 in binary - You need to type in, (without ' marks) '1000101'

26. Jackmerius _ - You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'tacktheritrix' (This was a pig to type in ;P If you're struggling, I found it easier to remember by breaking it down as tack the ritrix)

27. Is this the Krusty Krab? - You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'no this is patrick'

28. But I'm not a rapper - Thanks to 1337al for helping me work this out, they pretty much had the answer, only the spelling needed playing with :) - You need to type in (without ' marks) 'supa hot fire'

29. November 22, 2012, NFL play - Thanks goes to Crazyross for not only PMing me the answer to this one, but for providing an explanatory link as well. You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'butt fumble' Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butt_fumble

30. Subliminal Messaging - Thanks goes to Chendler for giving me the exact wording on this one. You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'five'

31. It's Over _! - You need to type in, (without ' marks) '9000'

32. Last Pokemon Game I Played - You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'silver'

33. Lafawnduh's Husband -You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'kip'

34. In an Idle Recruit Forum Post -You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'YOU CAN DOO EET' (This is my Idle Recruit claim to fame! ;D Seriously though, I want to thank everyone for their contributions, direct or otherwise, as you've made this possible. And of course thanks to CHARLESing for the honour! Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ2HcRl4wSk )

35. Dev's Current Car -You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'prius'

36. My Favourite Website Sorry Kong - Thanks goes to 2wizard for getting this one. You need to type in, (without ' marks) 'imgur'

-DON'T KNOWS- Thanks to contributions this section is again empty! This is a placeholder.

Feel free to contribute in the comments. I can't promise I'll see them but if I do and it seems legit, I'll add it.

That question is rather broad, could you perhaps narrow it down so that maybe others or myself might be able to offer some advice? Perhaps there’s a specific triangle you’re having trouble getting to, or a section you can’t pass?

in the 3rd screen, where is the passageway? i can’t see it, i beat all enemies and turned all levers but there’s no passageway in that screen

There should be a cave entrance, it’s a little dark so keep your eyes peeled. When you’re stood in front of it, you click on it to activate it like you would a door/lever.

Topic: General Gaming / Missing Triangle on Last Legacy: Null Space level 14 Hard Mode *UPDATED, BUG AND SOLUTION*

Hi, thankyou everyone for your replies, sorry it’s taken me so long to reply – I’ve ticked watching topic and get email updates but for some reason this one wasn’t alerting me. Sorry in advance for this being a wall of text — for some reason it’s only line-breaking after the first para despite trying to edit it several times :/ (Fixed now, turns out if you indent (as is proper ;P it doesn’t appear to recognise a break)

I have discovered the problem with that 3rd (middle) triangle. It turns out all along I had it, but the level is bugged and it just wasn’t registering the fact I had all of them. (Of this I’m certain, they’re all blued out each time and no amount of trying to ‘re-obtain’ them was working. I will never call bug unless I know I have done everything in my power to fix it as a player, and still have an odd occurrence.

I’m wondering if this has any relation to the delta orb not activating bug, which I also had, but was rectified by dying and re-spawning. I know that the second triangle is right by it, and was perhaps ‘caught up’ in the bug.

So, sadly, I’ve had to re-start the entire game after getting 89 delta orbs and level 17+ equipment :( This time I decided to get as tooled up as possible, did all easy first, then made level 14 my first hard mode level in case it bugged. That way it would tell me if I had another bugged file and if the new attempt was futile.

The solution I have found is this: After obtaining each large triangle in the level, quit back to the overworld without taking a step further. This was a HUGE pain, but this way I got triangle-by-triangle feedback after returning from the level each time, and ensured it certainly registered each one.

I have messaged the dev about this and have had no response so I can’t add that here, but should I do I will update my OP with the reply.

I will also update this topic with my (pain in the arse) solution, and hope that it doesn’t happen to anyone else, or at least others will see it and not make the same mistake.

Once again thank you all for trying to help me, what a fiasco! :)

You didn’t have to download the game you can play it online for free.If you know the name of it please tell me.

I’m not sure but it could be Kula World, I’m not sure what platforms it was released on but I remember playing it on the PS1 ages ago, on a disc of game demos. That may not be helpful if you’ve only played it on PC but I added that incase you played it earlier on a console.

WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MY ORIGINAL PROBLEM, I WOULD RECOMMEND IGNORING AS IT’S NO LONGER NEEDED, BUT I LEFT IT UP INCASE TRIANGLE LOCATIONS WERE USEFUL TO OTHERS -

So, I’ve tried the obvious already: looking for a walkthrough only turned up easy mode walkthroughs, searching the forums here only turned up 5 unrelated topics, and reading through pages of comments on the game turned up nothing.

I have asked on the gamepage for help but I’m not sure it will be seen, and I know others are having this problem so I thought it would maybe help others to ask in a forum post, too.

It says the middle (2nd) triangle is missing, but I don’t know if that directly relates to the specific triangle location.

TRIANGLE LOCATIONS
If it helps, the two triangles I know I have are the one in the room in the deep lava pit with switches, which was the easiest as you see it on the left after you enter through the hole and is obtained after draining some of the lava. (this one is the second, or middle, triangle)
The second one I have, which I assume to be the 3rd (it is), is where you have to grab onto the last of three serrated ‘blades’ jutting out of the lava, and get it by hanging off.
NEW The one I kept forgetting to add was the one in the centre of rotating spiked ledges. This is the first large triangle which you can obtain in this level.

I imagine it’s either going to be in the room that fills with lava where you have to keep ascending, or in the room with the wormhole and delta orbs where you have to fight mobs of wraiths(?) and block blue flame cannons. I have scoured both these rooms, using shift to see if there are any secret holes, but to no avail. I have tried this level 4 times and just can’t find that one triangle, I’m hoping it’s something obvious I’m missing. I have also tried tooling up with high speed and winged boots to leap across the tops of these rooms and found nothing. It isn’t the easiest level to keep repeating in the hopes of finding something (I found it to be the hardest in the game) so I hope you can appreciate my frustration. That and it’s the only one I need for the hard badge.

Really looking forward to a solution, even if you don’t put one thankyou for taking the time to read this, fingers crossed and happy hunting!
