Topic: Kongregate / Play with Full Sized Games and Chat Script

I’m sorry to hear that the script is broken, although the fix would be minimal, due to current circumstances I no longer feel obligated to continue working on this script publicly. I apologize to those who are affected and are uninvolved and I thank you for all your praise and support.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Summer Retrospective

nice vid.

I did a whole lot of nothing for the summer, other than the expected. Went and visited the folks for a week, worked on getting a new job, scripted a website and a bunch of other uneventful things like that.

I took no pictures, so there will be no proof!

aggixx it makes the game as large as possible, and makes the chat the full size. Removing that grey space would reduce the size of the chat, so I am inclined to leave it as it is.

I had this problem from another user. It should be solved now, it was a complication with how adBlock Plus blocks some ads. If the problem continues, let me know and I will update it again.

I will try and update the script to supply more specific error messages this weekend. Once I have that finished, install it and let me know the error you receive and hopefully I can narrow down what is causing the problem for you joshhh.

Do you have any other extensions installed? If so, could you list them, so that I can install them and test it out myself?
They can be found under the Tools menu > add-ons
If there aren’t too many, could you include the version number as well, as that may help speed the process along :)

Topic: General Gaming / Pandemic 2

Isn’t this something that the developer should be informed of, or on the comments of the game?


As a response:
1. I think the game is meant to take a while
2. it’s a game, it’s not about what you want :P
3. There are many diseases/viruses with no visible signs such as: cytomegalovirus. Plus there are many that lay dormant for years before doing anything, but they are still detectable in blood tests, designed to find other things, etc.
4. again, it is something you want, the game would probably be much easier if it did that, which is not always a good thing.
5. Countries survive by growing food in emergency circumstances. If the rest of the world is infected, even islands will find out, via radio, telephone, internet, etc. In a pandemic shutting down airports or limiting travel is very common. Think SARS for proof.
6. airborn viruses are limited, they disperse once in the air. Chlorine gas and mustard gas are deadly and airborn, if they could get to the whole world that easily, it we would all be dead now. The game is fairly accurate in that respect.
7. effects may be the same, but the spread is based on water not air, it’s a game.
8. I don’t see anything you are questioning here, what is your problem with this?

If you dislike the game so much, why are you continually playing it?

you will have to fill the line with some character. Many profiles use the – character to accomplish it.

I added that in a later version to notify users of changes that may affect the use of the script. Have you installed the latest version? If you have, please list any extensions you have installed. All extensions that potentially modify scripts or sections of the page could alter how the script works. Likely this is the problem, or there would be several people with the same issue.

Topic: Kongregate / Play with Full Sized Games and Chat Script

Thanks for the updates, I will start a list of games it does not work with. Perhaps even post the effect it has on the game. Eg: Music Catch does not display full width. Other games stay the same size with a larger chat, etc.

Topic: Kongregate / Play with Full Sized Games and Chat Script

Exactly Chi. The description on the first post addresses this. The game music catch must be using some sort of sizing formula based on the height of the game, which ignores the width restraint. Unfortunately this makes it incompatible with the script.

The script still works, there are a few games that do not work perfectly, due to static sizing, or how the game grows. Which game is causing trouble?

Just an update on the progress of the extension. The current version is running flawlessly. I will be implementing the automatic feature as a checkbox in the extension options, and under the tools menu before it is released as the new medium for this code. I will be out of town for a couple weeks, so I cannot guarantee any delivery date until I return. Thanks to all those who have posted I’m glad you like it!! :)

Topic: Kongregate / A plea to greg (and emily and jim)

[EDIT] you beat me greg! [/EDIT]

I think the topic is being overlooked. In theory this is a great idea, but so is communism. How do you pick the topics, how do you determine who’s allowed into such a room. Could you get banned for not having a serious discussion? Because that is not against the site rules.

This has come up many times in different forms, but the end result is that it really just isn’t feasible to implement on a 13+ site. Instead of wanting a separate room, why not trying to have a good discussion or debate in your current favorite room? I know we do it all the time.

If you want to turn off the xss issue, you can do the following:
-Open NoScript’s options
-Move to the Advanced tab
-Move to the XSS sub tab
-add ^http://www.kongregate.com/[.]* to the list


It should look like this:


It may also be a good idea to add:
-add ^http://kongregate.com/[.]* to the list as well

Before anyone posts, I am aware that the script no longer works and this is due to a kongregate update. I have fixed the problem and I am adding couple features and I will post the new version.

I don’t have flashblock installed, but thanks for the heads up :)


i imagine you already allow http://www.kongregate.com/ or you couldn’t play games. To get around the xss sizing issues i do move to a sub domain of kongregate to make the changes, thus the issues you were having. I will amend the known issues to include a flash block notice.

Topic: Kongregate / Play with Full Sized Games and Chat Script

i’ll see what i can do, because a few games do not stretch, I had left it as an option, but if there was a way to turn an auto full size on and off, that would effectively do the same i suppose.

I know the loading and reloading could become a pain with a slow internet connection, but it is necessary to make sure all the data to accomplish this script’s task is available. Having an automatic full size may not speed it up a whole lot as the code stands now.

I’ll see if i can switch it up a little so it can switch a little faster, then i’ll see about working in an automatic feature. Thanks for the ideas Matthewosh :)

very quick on the fix, and it is working wonderfully. I look forward to additions to the application, very nice :)

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Desktop Widget - Updated to 0.31

all i get is Whoops, if i’m signed in FF or IE or both. No errors, just continually notified that I need to be signed in on IE.
I’m running Vista Home Premium with IE 7, FF2 and FF3 Beta 5 no combination seems to work.
Does IE need to be the default browser for this to work?

Unless you have a miraculous solution, I’ll have to wait for a non browser oriented version.

Topic: Kongregate / Talk about the new facebook Apps

I assume the idea is draw more users to kongregate and it is a good way to get the news out. I like the arcade idea, it would limit the installation points, but still encourage game play. I personally hate having to install a bunch of applications, though for the points and being able to challenge my friends, i have done it for kong :)
Any chance of merging it with the existing kongregate games facebook application as well?

The idea of being able to get points when there are no more badges left for me to get, makes me rather happy, i’ve already played dozens of games with a few of my friends and even with the random issues, I am very impressed so far.

I really like the referral idea and breakdown Tasselfoot has.
If a user signs up through a challenge, having it count as a referral would be a good way to encourage these app’s promotion. Installations can be 5 points and the current challenge scores seem alright as well. This way pushing the applications, allows users to earn points, but not so many that users like aC who do not use facebook are not really missing anything they couldn’t earn with self driven referrals such as jayisgames and a few others who are well known for their referral points.

This would encourage the facebook applications, but more so, it would encourage users to sign up to kongregate itself, which is the desired result, is it not :)

glad to hear.. err read it :)

If anything like that happens again, feel free to post, and I’ll update the script again.

Which version of the script are you using? What version of firefox are you using?

My first suggestion would be to try installing the newest version of script, there were some changes to the site that have been adapted into the script. Current version is V2.1.8.

Make sure you uninstall the previous version(s) as well.

The first post will always have a link to the newest version.
