Topic: Kongregate / Arcade Pro for Android: running in the background without user permission

WHY IS THE APP KEEP LAUNCHING BY ITSELF AND RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND?!?

I use the Auto Task Killer and Advanced Task Manager Pro to blacklist and keep terminating Arcade Pro when I am not actively using it, but it keeps popping back up in the background and eating up my phone resources and juice. Why does it keep doing that?!? It is annoying. It is just a game app. It is NOT a system app or an essential app. It does NOT need to be running in the background when I am not using it or playing a game. Can you guys please fix the issue in the next update???

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestion: "currently playing" in profile page?

It’s more about organization. I don’t want to fill up a section with games that I don’t regularly play anymore, even though they are still my favorite games that I may revisit or recommend from time to time.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestion: "currently playing" in profile page?

Can we have a “currently playing” section that is separate from “favorite games”?

However, “favorite games” are not the same as “currently playing”. There are some games that I completed a long time ago, and I no longer play them, but I still consider as my “favorites”. I may want to revisit them in the future, or recommend them to other people. Games in this section could get piled up as I add more and more games to the section.

Then there are games that I am “currently playing”. They may not be my favorite games, but sometimes I would like to complete games that I have already started playing. I would like to keep this section short, so I can go to a game quickly.

Thanks.

Topic: Kongregate / How to see all my reviews?

I hadn’t used Kongregate for a long while until recently. I remember I can view all my game reviews in a section on my profile. But Kongregate seems to have remove that section. How can I see all the reviews I had written in the past?

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Arcade Pro on Amazon AppStore for $4.99: legit / current?

I absolutely hate ads on my phone. I do not want any ad on my phone, at all. That is why I opted for the Pro version. The “full screen” feature is not a reason for me to get the Pro version.

However, if you are not bothered by a little bit of ads, then you should go for the free version.

I’m waiting for someone from Kongregate to respond. I’d like to get the Pro version, but I’d like to make sure it’s current, updated and still being supported.

I think the core codes are the same for the basic and Pro version, with just minor tweaks to remove the ads and automatically enters full-screen mode. It does seem like the Pro version has not been getting updated.

I would like to purchase the Pro version if it is legit and continues to be supported and updated. But it seems like the Pro version was abandoned and does not get updated anymore.

And why isn’t the Pro version available at Android Market or mentioned anywhere on Kongregate?

The free version at Android Market is version 2.0.4, and was updated on October 31, 2011.

The Pro version at Amazon AppStore is version 1.5.9, and was uploaded on May 31, 2011.

So does the Pro version lag behind the basic one in version number and never get an update??

rawismojo works for Kongregate, right? So, is that the official word, that the Pro version is legit?

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Arcade Pro on Amazon AppStore for $4.99: legit / current?

Amazon AppStore for Android offers a paid version of Kongregate Arcade, the “Pro” version, that is ad-free. I wonder if that version is legit/official as I do not see anywhere on Kongregate that mentions a “Pro” version of the Android app:

http://www.amazon.com/Kongregate-Arcade-Pro/dp/B004Z2W7KU/

The Pro version is $4.99 at Amazon AppStore and is not available in the Android Market. The developer that uploaded the application is supposedly “Kongregate”, but the developer has not uploaded the basic ad-supported version or any other app. I wonder if the app was released by Kongregate or some third-party that misused the Kongregate name.

[i.e, I am wary of installing any app that accesses my account/password but is not released by the official entity. For example: the Android apps for Steam, either free or paid, were developed and uploaded by third-parties and not Valve. It would be very stupid for any Steam user to use those apps that could potentially steal user IDs and passwords.]

Topic: General Gaming / Best RTS game?

I must be the only Asian who despise StarCraft. (However, I love Blizzard’s WarCraft RTS and Diablo series; I hate World of WarCraft and all MMOs.) I tried to complete the original StarCraft and its official expansion, once back in late 1990s/early 2000s and once more right after Blizzard had announced StarCraft II, but I could never got into it.

I tried StarCraft II… and hated it as well. While I could not get into the first StarCraft for gameplay reason, I hate StarCraft II for additional reasons. The new problem with StarCraft II is that its script, story, dialogs and voice acting were atrocious, but it took itself serious as if it was a dramatic gold. I almost threw up in my mouth listening to the awful lines that were being spilled out in StarCraft II.

Urgh, StarCraft II should get Razzie’s for its screenplay and acting.

I didn’t mean a comment here in the forum. I meant a comment I wrote for a game, under the game’s “COMMENTS” section.

Topic: General Gaming / Mass Effect 2: PROOF that WRPG > JRPG, the MOST awesome trailer EVAR

And here are the reasons why:

Mass Effect 2 debuts at Metacritic with the score of 98:

Fallout 3. Dragon Age. Mass Effect 2. They are the reasons why Western RPGs are superior than the same old rehash Japanese RPGs like Final Fantasy XIII.

Real-time player-versus-player mode is now online and available at:

Background has also been updated, and various adjustments have been made to balance the different elemental fractions and cards.

A slightly modified version of Phase Dragon + Parallel Universe does work against Level 4’s simulated PvP mode, in which the AI uses a deck from one of the top 50 players.

However, human players are a lot smarter. Human players have already figured ways to beat the Phase Dragon + Parallel Universe deck. The real-time PvP mode is much tougher.

It is fine to have more than one account in the game. The developer knew I had more than one account, and he was fine with it.

However, in the long run, it is cheaper to keep just one account and pay the 150 coins to switch elements, rather than to keep multiple accounts. That is why I abandoned my second account.

We (i.e., the players) are pushing to developer to let each account keep more than one deck and possibly element. Right now, the developer’s priority is to implementing and debut the real-time player-versus-player (PvP) gameplay, which is in beta right now:

The real-time PvP is currently very glitchy, though.

I am good, but still learning a bit, so i was wondering a great deck that would fit those requirements, and grinding for cash isnt a problem

Select Aether as your element.

A “fast” deck for farming coins/cards on level 3 and below:
18 Aether Pillar
6 Parallel Universe
6 Phase Dragon

A safer but slightly slower deck, but still plenty fast, for level 3 and below:
14 Aether Pillar
2 Lightning
2 Dimensional Shield
6 Parallel Universe
6 Phase Dragon

These two decks can beat most any deck on level 3 and below. However, they do NOT work on level 4 in PvP.

Here is another deck from Zeta711 (30 Cards):

14 Quantum Pillar
2 Boneyard
1 Momentum
3 Otyugh
3 Freeze
6 Blessing
1 Owl’s Eye (Rare)

I would replace 3 of the 6 Blessing with Plate Armor, which requires less cost to cast:

14 Quantum Pillar
2 Boneyard
1 Momentum
3 Otyugh
3 Freeze
3 Plate Armor*
3 Blessing*
1 Owl’s Eye (Rare)

Mark of Aether:
18 Aether Pillar
6 Parallel Universe
6 Phase Dragon

This deck works very well in Level 3 and below. It is a very fast deck with quick turnaround, which means you can usually beat your opponent in few turns and under 2 minutes. This deck is good for earning coins and cards. However, this deck fails at Level 4.
