Topic: Kongregate / Concerning Kongregate Games

A minority of single player games download stuff after loading. However, the chat on the right continues to download. If you are concerned, after the game fully loads just disconnect from the Internet.

rating their games 1 won’t help any.

If it reduces the profitability of engaging in spamming by even one cent, then I consider that helping. It would be better if more people helped. If the games took a big enough rating hit then they would generally choose to stop doing it.

It’s not the developers choice to have this happen. You know that, right?

Actually, the developer has to implement an API for it to happen. You can’t just send any message from any game. However, I think there needs to be some clarification. There are two types of messages – one type sent by game developers, another sent by players.

In the above image, the Idleplex message was sent by the developer, the other one was sent by a player of that game.

The messages sent by developers are actually game updates that are AUTOMATICALLY sent to ALL players of the game. If you have never played that game, you will NEVER receive a message from its developer. Therefore, unless these messages are sent in a large number extremely frequently, they should NOT be considered spam, and in any case you can simply press the block button to never receive a message from that game again. That’s not to mention that you won’t receive such messages from games you don’t play.

The other type, however, is messages sent by players (often referrals, help requests, and other meaningless messages). This type of message has both the name of the sender and the name of the game. While these can also be blocked, you will also receive messages from games that you HAVEN’T played. I agree that this type is often spammy and is just a way for game developers, especially MMO developers, to get more view count.

I believe this “Alsee” user used to 1/5 my game for sending a game update automatically and sent me a private message complaining about it. I replied to that message, but now both the original message and my reply seems to be gone. While I have nothing against it, I don’t really see the point of posting all of these messages in one thread. Seriously, literally everyone knows you’re 1/5-ing every game that sends messages, and that you want a block all button, but posting all of these messages here doesn’t really do anything. If anything, you’re just spamming the forum.


As a general protip, if you want to block messages sent by developers, you have a choice to block a game the instant you play it by pressing the “block” button next to the “flag” button. That way you will never receive game updates from developers. As for the messages from those spammy MMOs though, unfortunately, you have no choice. Just block those games or 1/5 them if you are that paranoid.

Games like this make me really admire Armor Games. They produce some really good stuff.

Does Armor Games actually “produce” games?

I’m not sure but: How Fishing Rest perk works? It increases the amount of fatigue recovered every 5 minutes, or lower the cooldown for recover fatigue? Because I still recover 60 Fatigue every time I recover some energy.

You have a 20% chance to recover 50% ~ 100% more fatigue.

I don’t even think you know what you’re talking about.
Also, what’s the point of posting if you don’t answer the question that was asked?

Of course I know what I’m talking about. Sure it lacks the 10c part, but the idea remains.

Anyway, active skills do not affect Dark Ruler’s damage. As for HG enhancement I have no idea.

Topic: Kongregate / Birthday Kreds

ask the game devs of the free2pay (pay2win) games, to give extra resources on birthdays etc.

Many game devs give premium currencies as daily bonuses and stuff. But birthday is a pretty bad idea. I believe it is currently impossible for a game to grab a user’s birthday, and it should never be able to. Your birthday is your personal information, and should remain private.

Topic: Kongregate / Power Plug Icon

The game’s server might be down, or your IP might be blocked from that particular game. Some IPs (especially at school, work, etc.) and several countries do not allow you to play multiplayer games.

Breaking News- Custom colors out of whack

I was messing with the Breaking News colors, and found that they tended to be x.35 or x.65 instead of a clean number. And said .35's and .65's produce crazy colors. Ex. Try setting all three values to the same decimal number. Typical Result: NOT gray (when I tried, it was a pale green.)

This will be fixed in 1665. In the meantime please set your browser zoom to 100% to be able to change colors correctly.

Make a leaderboard that doesn’t include developers. You can see who has the most points purely from badges, not from developing games

A badge point leaderboard would work better. Developing games gives a negligible number of points, while rating games gives you 50 points every day and referrals give way too many points. Also it’s a bad idea to exclude developers from being ranked. A developer who has all badges deserves to be #1.

Create a new text file (or edit it if it’s already present) and rename it mms.cfg in %WINDIR%\System32\Macromed\Flash with the line FullFramerateWhenInvisible = true in it. For 64 bit operating systems, the file needs to be in %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Refund Code system changes

Hi everyone who sent me a verification code,

I apologize for the delay and the inconvenience, but due to technical problems your savefiles will not be verified until version 1665 is released. I have received all of your requests (although I haven’t sent private messages back to you) and will process all of them. I will also give each of you additional Event Tokens as thanks for manually verifying your file, and as compensation for the delay.

In the meantime, you can still play the game normally and don’t have to worry about being unable to submit scores or your file being potentially blocked in the future.

Thank you for your understanding!

How does the automatic ant sprayer work exactly? Does it just make it so you don’t have to press the green/red button yourself (making it basically useless for me since I barely idle)? Also, how frequently does this game get updated? Been playing for about a week and enjoying it a lot.

Hi!

Yes, the 24 hour Automatic Ant Sprayer makes it so the green and red buttons are automatically pressed whenever available.

While updates are now no longer as frequent as before, the game is still being updated! There will be a big update released in a few weeks with the new Simulation Cyborg feature, minor improvements, balancing, some more end-game content and bug fixes. Stay tuned!

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / v1665 - Open Testing (with lots of missing features)

Do you have 100 quadrillion Garden EXP or something? I tried setting my Garden EXP to 10 billion (which is a very unrealistic amount) but that is still far from enough to make one tree harvest enough for an entire ascension.

I have posted this bug last year, but when I am fighting WHILE NOT pressing or holding G, it results in a lose but does not show the lose screen, as I said, i get a lose and keep fighting until i win or lose.

Kazuya121 | 536 / 512,968,718 | [d1]–15 | F0 | v1,664 | WIN 14,0,0,177 | Sat Aug 30 16:04:04 GMT+0800 2014

Not a bug. The number that increases is the number of matches played, not the number of losses.

Plenty of games use it. The oldest I can think of is Amberial: The Tower of Endurance which was made in 2009, though it’s certainly not the first.

I just want to know why holding shift doesn’t work anymore. Every few seconds I have to let go and hold it again or else it results in misses.

That’s most likely due to lag. Try reducing graphic quality and closing unnecessary programs.

It actually doesn’t. Nice catch.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongpanions .. ?

True, that’s why I’m also implementing a way to obtain “Kongpanions” in the game itself. Like this:

I believe this should be done in every Kongpanion game because otherwise it’s too unfair for new players who have no Kongpanions (unless the Kongpanions are purely aesthetics or worthless in that game). And like I said this is mostly an experiment.
