Topic: Kongregate / [How To] Get Kongregate Arcade to work on PC

Of the non-Kongregate Arcade badges, Tyrant Unleashed crashes instantly, Escape costs money which doesn’t seem to process, and I can’t find Sheep Happens anywhere. Is there some way to get these to work?

Topic: Kongregate / New badge discussion

Okay, this can’t be right.

The badge asks us to get 2000 power, which just is not reasonable for a medium badge. I can see why you might think it was if you played up to around the easy badge and have 600 power or so, but after that your power completely halts. The space between levels gets far enough apart that you need to start doing side quests to progress in the game (main quests are given to you each time you level up), which are grindy but not unbearable.

But at around level 29 or around 1000 power your side quests run out. And then you’re screwed. All you can do is grind missions which give out less than 100xp per run through, and considering that after blowing through the main quests you usually have to get about 5000xp to keep going, it just becomes absurd.

2000 power is way too much. The game completely murders your power gain after you hit 1000 and kills everything you’re working on. I don’t know how far the game was played through before it was given badges but I can take a pretty good guess it wasn’t much farther than level 20 or so. Either halve the power requirement for the medium or make it a hard badge.

Vorp! doesn’t register kills or deaths any more, meaning you have to screenshot all your kills and assists to send them in for the badges, or something. I don’t know how you’re supposed to prove it.

I never seen any Room Mods get Demodded. Its always Global Mods now.. So once Room Mods become Mods, do they stay Mods forever or can they, like Global Mods, be Demodded too? I know a handful of inactive Room Mods.

The rules for activity to keep your M are for both room and global mods, they can be demodded and remodded just like globals.

As for why you don’t see any demodded room mods, the process for demodding someone who has gone inactive takes ages. About 3-5 months from what I’ve seen. That places the cutoff date around the start of the year, or the time which most of the room mods you see today were given their M. There just haven’t been enough time.

Nor has the concept of room mods been around for long enough for anyone to get tired of it. When you see room mods you’re seeing the latest nominees, people who usually are still getting used to how the site’s changed for them. They’re naturally going to be a bit more wired in to Kongregate and more active in chat because their experience with the site has recently completely changed.

Give it a year and you’ll see a few more room mods drop off. But why would you want that

I just thought I’d pre-emptively answer the question on everyone’s minds and say that no, consuming a moderator’s flesh no longer grants you X-ray vision.

Topic: Kongregate / Absolute worst (and I guess best) Kongregate badges

If you’re asking for the worst badges and not the worst games with badges (Bible Fight GAHHHHHH), then I’d definitely have to go with badges that were designed to fit criteria that the game itself wasn’t.

My case in point would be Pyro. I live in the room where Mike, who made it, does and he’s confessed that he never designed the game to have the impossible badge on it. The timer was poorly implemented by him and he never intended it to be used for anything. Same with acing all the levels, a lot simply weren’t designed that way. Yet the badge seems to have different ideas, demanding perfection in both, and I consider it pretty awfully designed.

Some other ones would be the hard on Robot Wants Puppy, or both hards on Hanna in a Choppa 2, all of which seemed to have been made against what the devs intended.

Don’t do that.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Not so much a badge suggestion as it is satisfying the OCD aliens in my brain, but I’d love to see Vector Stunts hard badge rounded down to an attainable amount while the game’s broken. The bug that’s broken the game has been closed so it doesn’t look like it’s going to get fixed any time soon.

I’d reccommend rounding it down to about 150,000 which is a pretty hard amount to get but not completely unreasonable. But that’s just me.

I’m confused. Is it deleted deleted like Zening where its link just leads back to the main page and the badges only show up if you’ve already earned them or deleted like Sola Rola where they sit there for life taunting you like cruel avenging harpies from Hades itself?

Can you help me to remember one game? In the game there was space and 2 huge teams of spaceships/colonys. You start game at the home space base and had some missions. Sometimes you could upgrade your ship. There were different kind of missions, in some of them you needed to help ally, in some you was needed to assasinate someones spaceship. The map was really huge. In the game you acted like a freelancer, not like army man. Lastly, i cant remember if was everything computer generated or real people were playing too, so the game might be an online one. Someone help?

Starfighter: Disputed Galaxy. It used to be multiplayer but reverted to singleplayer after it was overrun by hackers, which might be why you’re getting a bit confused about the enemies. Enjoy, regardless.

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

I remember this game that was really big at my school a few years ago. You were this guy with a beanie and you jumped up this neverending tower and got combos for doing flips and stuff, and it was snowing outside the tower. It’s definitley not on Kong, as I know it was downloadable only.
Can someone help me?

Impossible. You can’t have an R AND an M. An R/M and a K. An M and a C. Etc , etc. The max you could possibly have is 2 , I’m pretty sure. R/D, C/D or M/D

Oh well. It would be pretty funny if there was.

Topic: General Gaming / Pokemon nearing its end?

As much as I like the Pokemon games, I got tired of it once they moved to DS. It was a classic Advance/Color game and I think that’s where it should’ve stayed. Now it’s just being tirelessly remade into the same thing, but shinier.
