This problem should be fixed now.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Afterwind] Recent Change to Premium Features

I thought we were being nice – giving new players the Options pack for while (we only started doing it on Kongregate). But apparently, it’s “100% free or nothing!”. I’m sorry, but we can’t provide the game entirely for free – at the very least, we have to pay for the server. Our monetizing options are limited, since we don’t want to sell units or upgrades (to prevent pay to win situation). What do we have left? Make some features premium-only. Make sure they are not absolutely essential, but still desirable enough for those who are willing to pay.

Sorry, it’s not possible to play with Moonlight. The latest Moonlight version is 2, Afterwind requires at least SL 4.

Use the full screen option – solves all the problems (except chatting)…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Afterwind] content downloading

Content is supposed to install automatically – you don’t need to select where to put the files (in fact, you shouldn’t even be prompted!). Make sure your Silverlight local storage is enabled. Right click anywhere on the game and select the storage tab in the SL menu. Try cleaning the storage and refreshing the page.

Not possible at the moment – needs a major engine rehaul. Perhaps at some point in the future.

Current price of the lifetime subscription (full package) is 120 Kreds – I believe that’s about 12 dollars?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Afterwind] just a black screen?

Which OS/browser are you using? Try a different browser – that often helps. If that doesn’t help, try reinstalling Silverlight.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Afterwind] Explanation about game not being free

We love making games – it’s almost as much fun as playing them. But let’s be realistic: would you spend two years developing a game and then continue supporting it (with your attention required pretty much every day), paying for the server, etc. – only to release it for free and still get nasty comments from people who didn’t like it? Not very rewarding, isn’t it?

I don’t understand it – as it is now, the game is essentially free. Sure, you can’t start Whole world games – but you can still join them, or start a Eurasia game (almost as good). Same with creating own scenarios – hardly something essential. What else? 3 new strategies (no extra advantage) and 1 new unit (not regarded as terribly useful). My point is, all of it is extra stuff, and you can easily play the game for free for as long as you like. There are no roadblocks anywhere. Oh well.
