I’ll also want the IT workers at Kongregate to review the API code since the API seems to make games unstable. This also happened in the past but happens more often recently. Still, I know they will not do that since the IT workers at Kongregate are just a pile of garbage.

I was going to ask the thread how it could be the case that Strike force kitty 2 got laggy after badges were added. I mean, its not like it has its own server that would get overloaded with requests with its new popularity (I don’t know shit about computers, but basically what i’m saying is its not an mmo or normal multiplayer game).

It can’t just be the API either since not every game gets shitty once badged.

I’m the person who bitched enough for Cupcakeria to get a “comment” from greg — which he interpreted as badging it. I’m not a shitposter.

….YOUUUUUUUU!!?!?!??!

I haven’t caught up with these new posts yet (I will!), but there’s an easy badge life in Kana Warrior now.

As I mentioned in the game comments, I wanted to promote this game, but I don’t think many people are going to learn Japanese just to earn badges, so I decided to just have an easy badge early on, after completing the first set of characters. If you want to learn Japanese, keep playing! If you just want to earn the badge, I promise it’s super easy.

Greg, things have been feeling like you’re getting back to the typical pace. Appreciate it, hope you can keep up the good work.

People take badges too seriously. The more the merrier. If you can’t earn it for whatever reason(including it being literally impossible to obtain) then so what?

The more the merrier isn’t really the issue. Spending time badging one game detracts from time spent on badging others. The constraint here is man-power, not games.

And I know this isn’t a great argument, but its just really annoying not being able to obtain badges from dead games.

I think you have made the new picma picture enigmas too long, I think you should have just made it for completing all the experts not journeyman and apprentice too.

I did consider this, and maybe it would have been better.

It may be too late to suggest this, but now that I’ve spent a lot of time with Picma and haven’t even finished Journeyman, I think it might work better to have one hard for apprentice+journeyman and one for expert. It wouldn’t be too disruptive to make that change, I hope.

It’s surely too late but yeah, the hard badge is really, really long. I’m pretty sure I have spent 2h on one of the 50×50 plus puzzles. Good fun though.

We were bugging Greg to badge it to give us something to work on during this lapse, I don’t think people should be giving him crap for it now that its taking too long.

A suggestion Greg – a lot of people here want Picma. Work on that one next to keep people busy, a hard (probably, endurance) badge will give people a lot to do while you work on other stuff.

I’ve done one puzzle per row to get to the hard ones faster and right now as I’m on the 3rd page of medium ones, I have 50k experience. So I think I should reach 100k pretty much at the same time I get to the hard puzzles: I would definitely make the hard badge at least 150k or 200k (those who have played it longer can say what they think is best).

Number of puzzles is boring for hard – I don’t want to have to sift through all the easy ones or medium ones even if I complete the hard ones (plus you could get the badge with just the easy ones and some medium and not even a hard one).

Oh, I didn’t even realize you could skip ahead like that. Yeah, ^^what he said.

Hey guys, sorry about the messiness with Contract Wars badges. I’ve notified the developer about the problem. There does seem to be some kind of delay with the submission for the easy badge. I’m not sure why I didn’t notice this during testing — it seemed to work fine for me, and then once I had the contract completed, it always reported retroactively whenever I loaded the game up, so I missed the window that I had for noticing any delay between completing the task and seeing the statistic report.

so what happened to the Pixelo badges

I’m hoping to get those up tomorrow for real this time. Maybe an easy for completing 10 levels and a hard for 100k XP. Please weigh in with final thoughts if you have any.

i’ve been cranking out some levels for Pixelo since i saw you were doing them. I saw you weighing some stuff out about this earlier, but you can get 100K XP doing all easy levels, i’m at about 80K now and only about halfway through the easy levels. So, to corroborate with what others would saying, i could see like
easy 10 levels,
Medium, 100K XP
Hard, 150 levels (will take a lot of time, but once u get the hang of the game u start cruising through easy levels)

Topic: Swords & Potions / Quest help please!

You have to click on the map at the back of your shop to move to the city gates. There, adventurers will start approaching you asking you to give them an item to sponsor them on a quest. However, there’s an option that lets you send them on a quest. Send an adventurer on the quest to have a chance at completing it. It may fail (many times) but with time it will come.
