Topic: Kongregate / Fall '15 Suggestion Thread

Give us the ability to filter out Unity Player games when browsing Kong’s massive
catalog of other games. I’m sure I’m not the only player who doesn’t bother playing
Unity games when neither of my pc’s don’t even like them. :(

Shame too. Because there are some decent games that use Unity unfortunately.

What’s with all the hate on Unity?

  • It requires a third party plugin
  • Unity games seem to crash a lot
  • It is a stupidly massive resource hog. On a computer that can play games like Eve Online, and multiple simultaneous instances of WoW…even static menus on unity idle games, sitting there doing nothing routinely eats up 50% of my cpu.

If your’e developing for mobile, unity might be a good option. But it’s awful for browser games. It’s like booking a flight on a space shuttle to get to your next door neighbor’s house. Nobody in their right mind would do that when they can simply walk. Meanwhile, if you’re a developer:

  • Unity has low market penetration
  • It is more expensive for the full development environment than adobe flash
  • A lot users don’t like it

Why in the world would you choose to pay more for a development environment that is slow, laggy, buggy, crashes a lot, requires a third party plugin to use, solely for the sake of reaching a smaller, frustrated market of users who don’t want to deal with all these problems?

Why?

Just…why?

I hope unity fails, and a lot of other frustrated users feel the same way. Unity is a ploy to introduce a new proprietary format with the hope that it becomes standard, so that the company that produces it can monopolize market share. Which, yes…is exactly the same thing that abode did with flash, and adobe annoyed a lot people when it was new too. As a programmer, I remember very clearly when I first downloaded the “Free” flash development environment back in the 90s and was absolutely disgusted with how awful it was. And now, years later there’s no longer a free version, it’s a monthly fee based service to make adbobe rich. Unity is doign exactly the same thing, and all the devs who learn it are foolishly buying into the same scam: all those free versions will be made obsolete and no longer work the moment they think they can get away with an exclusively fee based service.

It’s totally a scam. Devs suffer, users suffer, and our poor computers suffer for the shoddy inefficient resource hogginess of it.

Everyone suffers.

Unity is awful.

This thread ended here.

Amen to that.

Topic: Game Programming / What's with all the hate on Unity?

I’ll tell you why I hate Unity…It’s unstable and it doesn’t have
an automated update system and on occasion, not only does
it crash. It crashes the game and the browser too. I can see
why Google doesn’t want anything to do with Unity.

We want to play the game, Not wait till Unity finishes its hissy fit
before it decides to let the player play the game it was made with.

Devs don’t seem to understand that not everyone has a super computer
with all kinds of super speed terabytes in it like they may have, and not
all OS agree with Unity code. I have witnessed this on 4 different pc’s.

I have had to give up some nice Unity games I wish weren’t made on Unity.
Including Vega Conflict. :(

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of the Realm HOTR is shutting down?

Not surprised really. It was fun for a little bit until
they started charging rent for item space…That’s the
reason I left the game.

I would like to thank The HOTR devs for telling us know
ahead of time instead of waiting til the last week
or after it turns up on a geek.com news article. Kudos. ;)

I have 4

For the farm: One click tasks for animals on a players farm

For the farm: One click De-weeding, worming and collecting harvest on crops
(stole on farms should be changed to harvested)

New campaign dungeons with Legendary difficulty

Please raise the level cap to 90 or 100. Reached level 80 and it feels like the game is over
(And there is really nothing more to do)

Topic: Technical Support / Unity not working in Chrome

Some Unity games really cripple and really hang the
gaming experience up badly.

The latest Unity based game I played was Astrolords: Oort Cloud
it isn’t doing well. It always crashes and has a slow response to
when you want to leave the game to go to another page which
is annoying. Personally I think Unity web player needs an
overhaul.

And I thought Adobe Flash player was a pain…

I have reached lvl 80

Now it feels like the game is over and things just
get harder from there on out.

I would like to see 80+ campaign missions and add another
difficulty. We have Normal and Hero why not add Legendary?

Also would like to see the level cap raised maybe to 90 or 100.

Please. I beg of you make the pop ups go away.

Constant reminders that my archer is lacking something

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Astro Lords: Oort Cloud]Firefox

When I try to access the game on Kong using Firefox.
It says it can’t find the game and has a big opaque
screen with that message on it where the game
should be.

I am playing Astro Lords on my Opera browser.
The game plays kind of sluggish on Opera but it still plays.

Why not leave 2 bags open for inventory?

I come back after a long hiatus and all my inventory is STILL locked
it is the main reason I quit the game in the first place.

The game is hard enough already without having to worry about storage rental.
Cubics could be better spent on other things.

Why not have all troop stats stack like mount stats?

Because there is a lot of unused potential in troops we’ve leveled
and enlightened, but very seldom use.

Kong admins would probably tell you, if they did that they would

Spirit Covenant

Warriors Call buff doesn’t seem to raise any stats
when activated. It does nothing as a matter of
observation.

This is in both MP and Necropolis dungeons.

Topic: Kongregate / Games Gettin' The Axe

Sure would be nice to know ahead of time, before investing money
into a game BEFORE it jumps ship to leave players hangin.’

It’s always when a developer gets squirmy and wants to pull the
plug on their game. The players are always the last to know.

When they are finally told their favorite game is being shut down
It’s too late. deer in the headlights kinda stuff.

Topic: Wartune / No SCs Exchange on 23th, reason?

What? Soul Crystal event is a big one for me.
And yes I do save up all my soul crystals for it.

So why the devs have a problem with that now?
I did read that the devs didn’t want 2 SC events going on at
the same time.

I don’t do the saving of Soul Crystals to get over on the game. I do it
because I want a high BR and to better augment my gems, that’s all.

Clearly some of these devs or R2Games higher ups are not gamers.

And if they are, They prolly just add what they want
to their toons on a whim, not have to work hard for
it anyway.

Needs a newer space age feel to the game.

The interface for all the different areas are okay they
just need refinement and not look so cookie cutter.

Topic: Wartune / Bugs post 3.1

I noticed longer and longer load times going from one area to the next.
Much worse in the wilds. (loved the wilds better 2 patches ago)

Even longer load times for my toon (character) and troops, they stay
in ghost form for 5 to 10 seconds while in battle.

Toon and mount keeps disappearing and reappearing when in motion in
Cloud City or any other area in the game.

Thank you very much for letting us know what’s up.
Emergency is just that, an emergency.

And yes I came back to the game after I said I quit.
I forgot how many times I tried to quit Wartune. :P
