That should be Gateway II by Struma.

Topic: The Arts / Youtube Channel Art Request

Not sure what you’re exactly going for, but here’s my attempt. If you want me to change anything or if it isn’t what you had in mind, let me know, and if I have the skills for it I’ll try. My artistic skills are limited since I’ve only started drawing about two weeks ago though.

This is my first draft, but I don’t know what kind of cat coat pattern you wanted or what background so I omitted those. I can also try to change the suit style or color if you have any specifics in mind. Not used to drawing serious eyes, since I’ve pretty much only done cute eyes, but let me know if you have any eye style in mind. Also if it’s too big/small, I can resize it.

I’m also not sure if this counts as ‘cartoony,’ so if it’s not, I don’t mind redoing it.

I didn’t draw the second image, but my picture was inspired by a strip from one of my favorite manga, and it served as my avatar until I lost a bet and started wearing my furless squirrel avi.

Topic: Kongregate / can we get kreds from acievments?

Giving an extrinsic reward for getting achievements isn’t financially feasible, but it also causes problems in other fields. For example, if you’re awarded kreds for getting an achievement, you now have incentives to use cheating software to get your kreds.

It’s certainly a shame elephants are so big. If they were the size of a tea cup, they’d be so adorable.

Topic: Technical Support / save files

I’m not sure if what’s causing the files to disappear, but a few links should help you.

If you’re using Chrome, the instructions to find your save file location is at the bottom of this post, and you can just copy and paste it somewhere to act as a backup, and all you have to do is create a copy of your backup and paste it back in the save file location.

Thanks to EndlessSporadic for making the guide, but if you’re using Fire Fox or I.E. go to " C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\random series of letters and numbers\" then chat or asset.Kongregate and then locate your game folder and copy the SOL file.

Topic: Technical Support / kongpanion's wrong draw

As I said in the other thread, I’m pretty sure that the devs are intentionally keeping Walters bad art, and that it’s not a glitch. They probably won’t change it for a while, but they should eventually change it back when they don’t think it’s funny anymore.

Ok, i’m new to this but here goes…

The game is a pixel/mining/dungeon/RPG game, but not found in any of those categories. In the game, you find a destroyed village and it’s mayor. You help rebuild the village, and along the way find a slime monster which you keep as a pet. The mayor hates the slime monster, yet at one point tries to cook and eat it. You have to enter and explore mines where you mine the blocks and fight monsters to get through. At one point you meet a guy who claims to know the mayor, and that the town has been destroyed before, but the mayor denies it and begins acting shifty whenever the topic is brought up.

I never managed to get any further than that in the game, and now I can’t find it again. Can anyone help me?

It might be ‘Little Cave Hero,’ which is unfortunately now removed.

Topic: Kongregate / pay to play and kongregate go bad

Well Kongregate really doesn’t control what’s being uploaded, and rather than Kongregate changing, it’s just that more developers are interested in making those type of games. We still do get good games, and just because there’s an influx of those game doesn’t mean that the rate that good games are appearing will be reduced. What can reduce how many good games come in are services like Steam where the devs can sell their product rather than host it for free on Kong and hope for ad money to come in.

Topic: Kongregate / Kong plus

GameStop which currently owns Kong offer two card types to their customer. A free powerup card which you can connect to your Kong account to earn points towards powerup rewards, and a Powerup Pro rewards card which gives you free K+, more BotD points, and several instore benefits.

There are ways to get K+ without paying for it as some people occasionally host contests where one or more of the rewards include free K+.

Topic: Kongregate / Seriously, Kongregate?

Don’t forget you can use the mute button. It is ‘ignoring the problem,’ but if you can convince others to do it as well, it can greatly help the problem. Moderators aren’t the only ones who you should look for to improve the situation as even regular users can help by ignoring or muting the problem.

Also I go to your chat room too so I understand what you are talking about. It isn’t just the troll, as others were blatantly feeding him yesterday, and the problem lies with the users and the troll.

Topic: The Arts / Platforming

Well, if you’re writing about thrillers, I’d recommend you just go wild with your ideas. Even if it’s an entertaining book to one person, a book/movie/play can teach you very interesting things. I mean I’ve learned a lot simply by playing games, so if an individual reads your book, I’m sure they can get some inspiration out of your work. I’ve sat around and learned how to read modus operandi of individuals by playing games like Phoenix Wright or learned how to detect a lie or make an effective bluff by watching a comedy like Archer.

Some of insanely creative idea come out your genre like this one Chinese drama I once watched where a criminal suspected the police chief was trying to ambush him in the next room, so he dialed the chiefs phone number and listened for the phone ring to give his enemies position away. I can’t say I support criminals, but who knows, maybe an idea from your book can change someones life.

To add to my point, I’ll demonstrate with my last post. My intention was to defend stalkers (as I’m more or less one myself) as hard workers who will do whatever it took to get close to their target, and in there, you found some meaning in what I said and became inspired to make your blog more user interactive (which I believe is a good idea).

Anyways, I’m not sure if it’ll help with inspiration in your future writing, but if you haven’t done so, you might enjoy browsing something like TvTropes which contains a lot of popular tropes and show how they are applied in different works. If not that, just going through trivia videos or online articles can be a great way to find something to inspire you.

A book may have trouble balancing alone, but put more books next to it, and it’ll be stable. Great authors have historically been friends with one another. Find those who love to write and support one another like a group of books that can’t stand on their own.

Now I really feel like I’m spouting cheesy lines from Saturday morning cartoons right now.

Topic: Technical Support / Liking Feed content and Profile question.

I don’t think it’s all the way up until account creation, but yes it’s loading a fairly large chunk of peoples profiles. Also yes, it seems the like button is broken.

Edit: Nevermind it seems some feeds were removed due to being too old, and it does go back as far as the profile will allow.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Transfer Save

You don’t even need to copy the save file. Just go int option, and save the game manually, and it’ll put the data in on your clipboard. Just switch browsers without copying anything else, and you can just import the data by pasting it.

Topic: Kongregate / April '15 Suggestion Thread

I’d like to see the ability to change text colour or hide text. Some threads might get spoilers that people can hide using white text or having their post or part of their post hidden with a box that warns you of spoilers.

It was mentioned before in an earlier thread, but perhaps add a subforum specifically for suggestions/petitions/etc.

I’ve suggested this a few times before, but perhaps allow K+ members the ability to access their own private forum, and they can invite other people in there and it can act as a message board between friends or a place to host private games. Kind of like the guild forum feature except anyone can access it regardless of what game they choose to play.

Topic: Kongregate / is the standard of games really going down at kongregate

Another factor is that many factors have been exhausted and revolutionary flash game ideas may be very impractical to implement as it’ll cause glitches, memory leaks, etc.

There’s also flash game giants that will outshine any work new programmers make. It’ll be a bit depressing if you made this awesome game and it suddenly gets overshadowed by something by a large developer who also releases their game. I mean I’d be pretty demoralized if I had to compete with gameplays with giants like NinjaKiwi, Flipline (R.I.P. RoS), Armor, etc.

I like the shading for the hair, I love how it’s not just all one colour. Just outta curiosity, what program do you use to make these? Or is it just traditional drawing through a scanner?

I used Procreate for the iOS since I’m terrible with drawing on paper. No undo buttons on there.
