No API I think.

No, people need to know there isn’t a second guy making badges.

I don’t care if there are billions of Gregs or just the original Greg making badges. If they can only create less than 10 badges per month, they are not doing a nice job.
And LouWeed is right. Starlight 2 medium badge, being the same as the easy badge but with a little twist, sucks. Reach the Core’s medium, jesus… Кongregate needs someone new helping with the badge process, someone who has new ideas.

Thanks Pip. I love your -Pip.

Edit: Now I’m seeing the avatar updated. Weird thing is, other users were seeing it updated before I could.

I’ve changed my avatar using the Kongpanion Avatar Maker but the chat avatar didn’t change. Do you guys have some cache problem or something? Help me, Pip. I want to see your -Pip.

I am kind of surprised that Unity games keep getting badged or even proposed to be badged, now that in less than a year EVERY browser (with any sort of significant market share, including Firefox this time around) is going to cease support of NPAPI and thus also Unity.

In short that multip(l)ayer badge will knowingly only be there for under a year. That seems to be the trend with mp games these days though, so if it’s because the dev shut down servers or the game becomes unplayable doesn’t make that much difference aside from the fact that you have a definitive time frame beforehand now. Badging a single player game using unityplayer where you are certain the badge will be ‘broken’ within a year seems folly, and that’s not even looking at whether the game actually works or not.

Pretty much this.

Oops! Sorry guys, it should be fixed. You’ll need to update the script.

EDIT: I’ve made some internal changes to the behavior of the script, being able to add new places to update the level more easily. This may create some bugs.

Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Increase the level cap

Originally posted by Lloyd_Majere:

I don’t know if you are talking about raising the level cap or the script itself.

Raising the level cap to 100 for every user would be insane. But the script it’s something optional, if you reached level 65 and you want to stay with that cap, don’t install it. But hey, you’ve said you wanted to see a goal and reach it; nothing is stopping you to set level 66 as a new goal (or 72 in your case, only 160 points left :P). With the script you have the opportunity to set a new goal and forget about the Kongregate imposed level cap.

It’s been like four years since I’ve reached level 65 and I myself love seeing again the x points needed for the next level message with the red bar below.
I’m not going to get every badge to reach a new level, I just enjoy seeing that x getting to 0 and the red bar getting bigger with the time.

Also, I may be able to let the user set the level cap, so everyone can set their preferred cap. I need some time but it’s completely feasible.

Done.

When you mouseover an username on the Activity Feed (My Kong page), it still shows as level 65.

Yeah, I know. Mouseover boxes do not update the level. Some day I’ll do that.

Here… Update the script to get the new features.

New version!

You’ve still got one more spot where it shows level 65 for people who are above level 65 – the bar in the very top of the site :)

Done, and now the level 65 cake is gone. You have to reach level 100 again.

Here I am, again. Updated the script to support chat window and chat mini profiles.
I uploaded it to a new host though, GreasyFork didn’t let me update.

Everyone who has it already installed should uninstall the script and install the new one.

Originally posted by Cal010:

Can you expand it to work in the top chat window, chat mini profiles, and forum username hovers?

It’s possible but, as there are no points shown within those sections that you mention, the script would need to load the points from another source so it may be a little slow to update.

Originally posted by Bluji:

I have absolutely no experience with scripting, but is it possible to make the script also change those level sprites next to the username on the top-left of the profile to reflect the higher level?

Sure. Done, if you update the script it should work.

Anywhoo, as you can see, Kongregate’s current layout supports 3-digit levels:

Once you get to 4 digits you start to encounter some layout problems:

I have no idea why Kramkram profile is the only profile that doesn’t like three digits level then.

I noticed a bug with your script, based on your example screenshot, resterman. The points display shows the next level image on regular profiles, not the current level.

Thanks! Should be fixed now.

3 is better than a few thousand. Excellent job.

Is the gear being bumped to another line on Kramkram’s profile a visual bug outside of your script?

Thanks. And no, it’s because the space needed by those three big characters it’s enough to rearrange some elements so they can fit. But that should happen with level 100 accounts only.

Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Increase the level cap

People always wanted to increase the level cap but Kongregate admins don’t want to raise it (I guess they have their reasons) so whenever you reach level 65, that’s it.

I’ve written this script to let people see what a user level would be without the level cap.
Changes apply to the user profile page, chat, chat profile page, My Kong tab, user hover profiles and that box at the top of every page

Here some screenshots:


How does it work? I’ve used this post to calculate the level given the points. Also, the new cap is at lvl 100 and that’s because Kongregate spritesheet has level badges till that level.
The new level cap should be enough for everyone, except for JayIsGames, 123aaa789 and Kramkram. Sorry guys!

You can install it using Greasemonkey on Firefox or Tampermonkey on Chrome. Not sure about other browsers, if you know how to install scripts, try it.

Topic: Kongregate / Calculating points for level

People bumping this gave me the idea to create this script that calculates the level without the actual cap whenever you enter a profile (now the cap is 100, it should be enough). I’ve used this post to calculate the level.

You can install it using Greasemonkey on Firefox or Tampermonkey on Chrome.

Topic: Kongregate / Greg, where are the new quests every two months?

The only thing I can get out of this topic is that Greg is dying, Kongregate does not care enough to give him a medical license and new badges or quests don’t matter enough to hire another badge guy.

Thanks GameStop.
