Topic: Kongregate / Better Kongregate Firefox Add-on [UPDATED: Oct 23, 2012]

NEW VERSION


Version 4.1 (January 13, 2011)


  • Addon’s icon is now in the toolbar, not the statusbar. You can put it back in the statusbar, if you wish, by right-clicking the icon and choosing “Customize”

  • A link to every script’s description page has been inserted next to it in the Options dialog for convenience

  • The navigation tabs have been given a bit more style

  • Added GrateGuy’s Mute List script

  • Added Vara’s Roomwatch and Superior Friends scripts

  • Added Ventero’s Forum Muting script

  • Fixed: Scripts that added entries to the chat actions dropdown (Fullscreen Chat)

  • Removed Modcaller (web app returns error)

  • Removed Recently Played script (broken)

  • All scripts updated to their latest versions

  • Changed maxVersion to 9.*


  • Known Bugs
    • Menu commands are occasionally duplicated after refreshing a page that isn’t fully loaded yet

  • Menu commands occasionally disappear after using the browser’s “Back” button
  • Note: We don’t usually post builds that have bugs, but these were very minor, and fixing them won’t be trivial. We figured you guys would rather have the fixed scripts since the Kong+ update before too much more time went by.

Click the red and white ‘K’ icon on the Addon Bar to access the options. If you have the Addon Bar disabled, you can enable it by right-clicking your Home button and clicking ‘Addon Bar’.

Alternately, you can get to it through the Addons interface by clicking the Firefox button —> Addons —> Extensions (in the left pane) and clicking the Options button on the entry for Better Kongregate.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Discussion about latest "plans"

Thanks for clarifying the reason for the Progress Bar slow down. I’m glad you’re doing this for performance reasons, and not just to make everyone’s progress slower. Come to think of it, I have heard a few people mention that the speed of the progress bar distracts them while anti-idling.

However, the epic skills won’t proc nearly as often with the slowdown, and would need to be re-balanced.



Why not make the card duration and career duration the same (23/24 hours)? I’m sure I’m not the only one who uses the two in tandem, and the fact that the cards have to be activated shortly after midnight to get their full potential is very annoying.

All that said, I’m glad you’re still doing updates, and appreciate your explanations for your decisions. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Rules of Awesome Adventures

I think Awesome Adventures is alright the way it is now. I do agree with the accidental Progress Bar Extension purchases, though, as this has happened to me twice. Making the confirmation for that particular adventure be SHIFT+Click would solve that annoyance.

New version is still being worked on :) I had a problem with my VM manager, but I moved to VirtualBox and everything’s running smoothly again.

Just to whet appetites: addon startup times should be ~60-75% faster when new version rolls around (hopefully this weekend).

Fixing my scripts is taking a lot longer than anticipated. I’m just too frustrated with this right now to work on it any more, so it’ll probably be another week or two before I have time to look at it again.

Yeah, we’re workin’ on it :) I’m not dead, I swear! 15 credits + work has decreased my free time substantially, but Ventero has been on top of things, and I’m going to try to squeeze out a version by the end of the weekend. My badge borders script has also been fixed, so you guys can download that in the meantime.

Oh, and any reports about weird script behavior with Firefox 4 would be much appreciated! I will have more time to look at it after finals, but the growing list of scripts sometimes means that finding which scripts are the ones causing problems can be a long affair.

Thanks for the report :) My last 3 final exams are tomorrow, so I’ll finally have more time to make an update before the New Year. MrSpontaneous’ newest version of the View Link Fixer script will be in that update.

Topic: Kongregate / Better Kongregate Firefox Add-on [UPDATED: Oct 23, 2012]

Yeah, I feel you on that one. I’m not too thrilled with FF 4 at the moment, what with the need for the orange button css hack, default link text location (light grey on bluish-grey…seriously?), etc. I’m going to be relying on even more addons & scripts than in the past to fix some of the design goofs in this version.

For what it’s worth, I have this problem with the Firefox 4 nightlies. Mozilla is in the process of rolling out Javascript compartmentalization and are still tweaking their implementation, so, as the script’s author, I’ve been waiting for the dust to settle before resuming work on it. That, and Firebug only just recently started working on Minefield again.

I’ll give the script a check next week after I check in on the Jaegermonkey rollout to make sure I’m not wasting any effort.

Just got an email from the mozilla team that beta 7 is out, and Firefox 4 is now in a feature freeze. This means it’s now ‘safe’ to work on compatibility for FF 4.0, since it’s almost here :) For script authors who were waiting until the FF 4 betas stabilized, the time has come! With that said, please post any present issues with scripts in FF 4.0 (excluding Full Profile Linker) so that Ventero and I can iron out any compatibility issues before the big 4 drops ;)

Thanks for the report, but the Full Profile Link script works fine on my end. It’s possible that one of the other scripts conflicts with it and is causing the blank chat. I’ll PM you about it to troubleshoot.
