on a line on its own is seriously nasty, and in fast paced rooms doubling the height of every message is only going to make the chat flash by even faster,

Topic: Kongregate / The new game browsing interface

i have to chime in with the poor choice on looks, for one thing the little thumb nail means nothing, it gives you no idea of what the game looks like, for that you have to hover over and wait for the pop up,

i can kind of see what you are going for, making it look more like an app screen, just logos and names, but app screens are a set of shortcuts to things you have already seen full details of, things where you know full well what they are before selecting it, an app screen fails at enticing you to want to play

Wonder if there is any easy way to figure out which of these retired badges you have or don’t have, don’t know if they show up on your profile list or not, only way i can think of is on the points list itll mention the badge but that doesn’t clarify if it is retired or not or what game it was from

3rd party badge viewers like savagewolf still show disabled badges, i can still see the 3 unearned ceasery badges on it for me

Ozone should appear on map at optics 8.

you cant get to optics 8 without first finding ozone, optics 5 is the best you can do so stumbling into a pocket of it is pure blind luck

what would be nice to know is how big are the ozone pockets? how fast does this yellow tint happen? how fast does the damage happen? is the reason I cant find any because they are only a few squares wide and I zip through them without noticing them or am I just getting unlucky? are certain planet types better than others? does the radar ping help?

Topic: Kongregate / Kreds too expensive in Argentina (SouthAmerica)

that and the second its cheaper to get kreds if im from a different country im setting my paypal to pay in that currency and jumping on a proxies site to look like i am from there

for instance, my $10 buys 100 kreds but if, for instance, they make 10 pesos buy 100 kreds then i do the above and my $10 now buys 80 pesos which i can use for many many many more kreds

@MyNameIsNothing More facial features… I think we can do that. Let me see if the system can allow for that. Currently we’re drawing the characters as map features, not shapable characters… so we may need to restring the system to make that work.

adding facial features might have been tricky and you want them to somehow just bolt on a fully working multiplayer?

i hope they do, but so much testing would be needed, that’s the sort of major game change that would have been better in beta,

Topic: Sandbox Hero / not a fan, just saying

new issues! the hit boxes around spikes is so damned vague as is i feel the hitbox for your character, i was stood next to the set of spikes facing them push away from them and as i turned they hit me, despite me moving away from them

i have had issues where the blue flying things are able to get close enough to me to do massive amounts of damage as my health ticks down but they are to close to be hit with my sword, i get there being a max distance to hit with melee but a min too?

last point for now, the buying gems page, a meme? really?

Topic: Sandbox Hero / not a fan, just saying

I’m sure some of you will love this but for me a horrible game, one i was happy to ignore till kongpanions came along and looked like this was going live and with a mighty push. this is the only reason i would say this. other games I’m content to walk away from and ignore

issues I’m having include sticky unresponsive controls, for movement this feels like I’m on ice if this happened all the time it could be compensated for but its not its very much like the keys get stuck for a few seconds or the game lags for the attack this means I’m sat hammering the hell out my space bar with no effect, this could be down to a poor choice of keys relation to the age old issue of arrows and spacebar but I get it when using wasd too,

the levels are one of 3 kinds, simple test levels to see how the game works – boring, on rails auto play levels – boring or decent jumping skill levels which are often impossible as you need to level up your jump skill to pass thus requiring you to grind the first 2 kinds of level, BORING

will these and other problems be solved when it comes of beta? maybe, but i can only see a vast influx of Mario remake levels, 8-bit art, giant cocks and ever more elaborate roller-coaster levels that you can start and pop to the shops to grab a paper before they are done and no matter how creative the level it’s still, in the end, a rather basic platformer with a sword

I love the style no issues with the art or the look of the thing, i dislike the mechanics and the substance that art is placed over and i cant see any reason for me to play this beyond the badges it will inevitably get, then no level of pushing trinkets in weekly challenges will save it

How can I search for users now?

You can just go to any profile page and substitute the name in place of whichever page you went to, it’s much easier to get to an account that way than by searching for it.

If you can read html (or ignore it) you can always search for accounts with the url:

<a href=";amp;amp;amp;search={part_of_username_here}" rel="nofollow">;amp;amp;amp;search={part_of_username_here}&lt;/a&gt;

Change any &amp;amp;amp; to the ampersand symbol. (shift 7)

For example, putting Unknown at {part_of_username_here} returns:

how would one go about using this with wild cards?

Topic: Kongregate / Does your family know that you play on Kongregate?

my wife knows, she is on here too, and most of my family know im a mod here, just keep playing, after a while people loose all hope that you will go outside to socialise and just leave you to it.

sometimes if you’re lucky you can see the moment it happens as the thin veil of hope that you will enjoy sports or find a girl/boy is given up, the eyes grey over and they gain a slight slump, it means you are winning!

Topic: Kongregate / Tweak the ban mechanism

if your account is going to be permanently banned for something (which i do believe most offensive names are) then what does it mater what badge you get? that account is dead and gone,

and i second what dark said, don’t pick stupid usernames, remember that this site is 13+, would you want your 13 year old kids to be talking to some random stranger on the internet called PornAdvertiser?

Topic: Kongregate / [New] Split test on the game page


my feedback, on the instructions/description module set description to be default, so many games leave this blank or just say ‘in game’ it leaves a large amount of white space otherwise,

same for the ‘from this dev’ and ‘others like’ module, the default shown should be the devs games and it might just be personal preference for me, but i don’t much give a monkeys what other people like, id replace the badges module with the other games one and put the other games under the description/instructions/updates

having said that, any time i scroll down from the game window its to look at game instructions/description/updates, ratings then user comments. I’m looking for information about the game i am currently playing not looking for a new game, new games are up the page (game, achievement, kongregate home page) having a section to take me away from the game feels out of place and wrong

the red game ratings box and the blue one with the shield, any chance of a tool tip/explanation? being able to see the rating larger is good but what the hell is the blue shield?

i have 2 games open right now, the one with chat is wider than the stuff at the bottom and having it centered rather than under the game looks a bit weird to me, whereas the other game and chat window are thinner than the info at the bottom and it looks fine (this could well be fixed for those of you who see ads, but as i don’t its just odd)

overall i like it, its cleaner and still gives all the info it used to,

Yeah, I feel like this will become an issue in the future since it seems to require 10 active players.

minimum of 4, 2 per side, as without another player to assist you cant get the second part of the badge, but that requires you to have 4 people all of the same rank.

this will in future turn in to the same situation as dinowaurs where people load it up and rather than a full match play just to get badges (you attack and kill me then its my turn to kill and attack you)

Topic: Wartune / [Coming Soon] The Spirit Covenant

All MMOs like this have an element of greed about them, they all want to make cash from players and im fine with that you are a business after all, the trick is to put a good enough layer of fun over that greed so people will play without feeling like they have to pay, having everything that could be purchased be available to everyone with a bit of luck and hard work helped this as it never felt imbalanced

VIP at $7.99 a month was fine, but now this too, $13 for a month of bonuses?

as it stands i can hit all my daily limits in a day, with VIP removing the cool downs i think it would take me a lot less, then with this pack on top of that doing bounty quests for me and making blitzs free half an hours play, i may as well just spend that $20 and buy myself a trophy congratulating me on a game well played and be done with it,

your game is fun, i like playing your game please stop letting the greed ruin it,

if this happens i will hunt you down for suggesting it and have at you,

should be enough exercise to exclude me for the rest of it,
