Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Cookie Crusaders Mini Event!

Very disappointing that the old crusader gear are only pay-to-play for this event (not that I even have that crusader). I hoped you were going to put some kind of grindy free way to get old crusaders and gear for them. I understand that there’s a business, but if it’s all going to be pay-to-win then it’s not really a game I’m interested in playing anymore.

Topic: General Gaming / [Mardek 3] Got 3 crystals - stuck

I spent like 2 hours looking everywhere. Finally looked in my quest items and I had never picked up the water crystal after beating the temple. Whoops!

My bad, it all works fine now.

Topic: General Gaming / [Mardek 3] Got 3 crystals - stuck

I’ve got the fire, water, and earth crystal (in that order) and now I’m stuck. I’ve already got the impossible badge – I’ve beaten the arena and killed both of the tough bosses.

At the air temple in aeropolis there’s still just the priestess. The walkthrough says there should be a royal messenger there? Also, the throne room in castle gonzor is still locked.

Have I missed something?

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Badges suggestion for my game Medical School

I’m not a doctor, but I’ll take a look (easy – 5 points)
Unlock 10 diseases in the game Medical School
- Triggered when “DiseasesUnlocked” >= 10

Learning is fun-damental! (medium – 15 points)
Become a Fellow
- Triggered when “CareerLevel” >= 4

Chief Medical Guy (hard – 30 points)
Become an Attending AND Unlock all 34 diseases
- Triggered when “AllDiseasesUnlocked” = 1 AND CareerComplete = 1
(There’s also a stat “GameComplete” that = 1 when both of these are met)

If you load a saved game you’ll get the badges if you’ve earned them.

Many of these stats are not public and don’t show up in the highscores table in case you’re wondering why you don’t see them there.

Thanks Greg for considering this =).

I’m level 135 in RS. I love it. Only problem is it takes up a lot of time whenever I get back into it. Trying to stay away from it a bit now!

Whoops! Reposting this in the right spot. Badges suggestion for my game Medical School

Ok, I don’t want to harass Greg cause I know that won’t help the cause. But, I figured if I help did some of the work he might be more inclined to give badges for my game if he was looking for a new game one week.

Topic: Game Programming / Thank you

I just wanted to say thanks to all the developers here. I just uploaded my first game on kongregate and it’s doing pretty well!

I started here a year and a half ago with the “How do you make a button?” question. That was followed by about 100 other questions about equally as stupid stuff.

Anyway, kong was my inspiration and support for learning how to make a game. Couldn’t have done it without the help – thanks!!!

Topic: Collaborations / Graphic Artist ready to create

Heya,

Your art is great. Do you do vector art at all? I have 2 artists working on my current project. One making JPEG backgrounds and another one doing the mid and foreground work in flash.

The problem – they’re both lazy. It takes them forever to finish even the simplest of things. So I think I’ll be looking for someone else for my next project (and don’t currently have one so I might be able to work on yours).

My website and current game should be up within a week.

Thanks Moonkey – very helpful as usual.

All those suggestions worked great. I appreciate it man!

Topic: Game Programming / Preloader help

Ok, I think that works. Have a preloader on frame 1, a MC on frame 2 containing all my linked MC’s, and a function on frame 1 that jumps to frame 3 when the preloader is done.

This all works great (I think) except for the sounds. I just dragged and dropped all 4 of my songs onto a layer in the MC in frame 2. Now 1 of the songs plays (even though my trace statement on frame 2 never plays) and the other three don’t work during the game.

So, can someone shed some light on how I handle audio clips that are linked for AS? Or am just doing something totally wrong?

Thanks!

Topic: Game Programming / Preloader help

Hello, I’m having a bit of trouble with getting my preloader to work properly.

My game is fairly big, and each of my “scenes” is an individual MovieClip that I load dynamically at each scene to allow me to do some fading in/out etc with them.

That means I have a bunch of giant MovieClips. Some placed on my timeline and some I load using .attachMovie().

The ones loaded with .attachMovie() I’ve selected:

Linkage→Export for ActionScript
Linkage→Export in first frame

Does this mean these movie clips have to be downloaded before my preloader? Also, my main songs are linked this way as well. Are they downloading before my preloader too?

That’s what I think is happening anyway. Is there anyway to stop this or am I doing something wrong with the preloader?

Topic: General Gaming / Runescape on Kongregate?

RS is a great game. If it gets badges that’s awesome. I doubt Jagex will implement the Kong API though for badges so I don’t think you have too worry.

I emailed you this morning. I sent a mail to safko01@yahoo.com with all my questions. Did you get it?

Topic: Collaborations / Good $ for pro flash dev - check playable demo

Safco – that’s a very interesting offer…

Is there a good way to get in touch with you? I’d love to see some examples and talk to you a bit more about how this would all work. The only initial reservation I have about it this is making sure I don’t lose control of the project. I’m not so much concerned about the money aspect of it. But the main reason I started making this game is to be included in a study to validate media as an effective tool to support medical education.

That being said, my number one requirement is still that it’s a “game”. That is, it’s fun to play and still marketable. My view is that people actually enjoy learning as long as they’re being constantly rewarded and feel they’re making progress. Plus, I may be biased, but I think many people are at least slightly curious about medicine and diseases.

Sorry for the rambling – I just wanted you to know where I was going with this project!

Sakket – if you really are interested in this and think you can handle it I think it then maybe we should talk? Everything medical wise I’d be taking care of 100%. All you’d be doing is remaking or improving the scenes. It might sound like all the work is on you but content wise, this game is already pretty huge. The database of diseases, symptoms, and courses is already pretty big and still needs a lot of work.

In addition, I can do a lot of the actual actionscripting – especially in the class files. I’m not a bad programmer, I’m just bad at flash and can’t draw or manage graphics to save my life.

The other reason I think someone might want to get on board is when the game’s done, I think it will sell for a lot more money then just a normal flash game. The medical world is still pretty new to media and technology and “vertical integration of clinical skills” and all those buzzwords are so hot right now. That’s my biggest problem – I just wanted to make something semi-quick and fun but the excitement over it and the expectations of what it will be like are making the project a bit out of my league!

If you think you might be interested at all, do you have any other games you’ve made or any examples of your work?
