Yeah, I lie all the time. You guys should have figured this out by now!

Does that mean I should stop trying to figure out what you’ve done to your “G” then?

There is still an easter egg in my avatar that no one has found yet, but it’s extremely subtle. But if you find it, you’ll know you’ve found it.

Anyway, Building Rush had a nasty API bug where medals were reporting +1 if you replayed a level and earned that medal. Like if you earn a gold medal on level 1 twice, it’ll report golds as 2. I worked with the developer today getting that fixed, but now the day is over and I’m feeling like a failure!

I’ll try to get these up over the weekend since I’m so close on them. On that note, though, I was thinking about doing a medium badge for all golds, but I’m just now realizing at 5:00 on Friday that level 20 is actually pretty hard to get gold on — way harder than all the other levels. So at least I’m glad I playtested this.

Anyway, I would like to do an easy badge for deliveries, a badge for profit, and a badge for either bronze or gold medals. Probably 1 of these 2 possibilities:

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: All levels completed

Hard: Something profit-based — maybe $90k or so

ORRRRR

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: $40k profit

Hard: All levels gold’d

Or I could just do 2 mediums, with $40k profit for one and game completion for the other. I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW!!! I’m going home. Weigh in if you have a preference, or if you have suggestions for names.

Sounds good to me. I would like to see a hard badge. Fight those bugs, Greg!
Anyway, I think the badges should be called: Building cash and Keep on truckin’.

Though lrn2patience does apply. (chuckle)

edit: and now it’s moot too, since they’re up :-)

If you haven’t noticed, Greg is always a few days late these days. Too bad the games only shows when you earned badges and when the game was published and not when badges were added.

Nein to ten badge. No offense.

Run 2 is the easiest? you have to look at this it is the first page of most awarded impossible badges and run 2 is not in the first place, Pandemic 2 is. (i’m not good at english)

I look there everyday. It just that for me it took longer time with pandemic since it requires luck. And that was IMO, so you didn’t have to agree.

i don’t really have anything to say for oO; i’m kinda split between jayars2’s suggestions and bluji’s suggestions.

really all i want is a badge in run 3 called “A Breath of Fresh Nothing.” please just don’t make it impossible.

Yeah, run series already got impossible last time and that is the easiest on the site. It just takes about 2,5 hours. But sure. I will try to earn it anyway.

At this point, it’s almost difficult for me to determine where the line should be drawn regarding oO. I do think that a composite Endless + Endless Drunk + level deaths badge would be the best option for an impossible, since it would best demonstrate “total mastery” of the game. That said, if it had to be one or the other, I’d recommend going with the Endless modes over death counting. I would say something like

[ ] 80 points on Endless
[ ] 50 points on Endless Drunk
[ ] 25 deaths or fewer on Level 4
[ ] 50 deaths or fewer on Level 4 Drunk

would make for a reasonable badge here, although the 90/60/nothing else mentioned a couple places above wouldn’t be too unreasonable. As far as potential lower badges go, an easy for finishing level 1 would make some sense, even if it’s slightly harder than a typical easy, and would reward players frustrated by levels 3/4 with something for their efforts.

There have been a number of other recent games with badges potential: I’m thinking of
9 (3.81),
Vex 3 (3.80),
Puzzle Fuzz: Episode 2 (3.85), and
The Wizard (3.67)

in particular. The first three games all have a 3.8+ rating and working API. The Wizard’s rating is slightly too low at the moment, but it’s really an excellent and unique game, and I don’t think it should be overlooked.

EDIT: I see Puzzle Fuzz is already in the queue, as is Run 3. Definitely excited about the latter. :)

90 on endless drunk. AA rehabilitation cycle.

I don’t like the game, or that it is on the hot new games list when it shouldn’t actually be there, but I have a name suggestion for one of the medium badges for Curl Up and Fly!.

Medium 2 (Travel 500,000 ft): And I would fly 500,000 more…

Gregs puts them there when about to get badges in order to promote them. I think so at least.

I haven’t played the game but I am a masochistic gamer so I will just go through most badges whether the game is good or not. I have to agree the papa games has been better since the first game and I would gladly just get it badged and get over with it, cuz this is discussion seem to be heading in wrong direction.

What the… 2 weeks ago I played inferno legend on firefox(which is my main browser). check your firefox updates?

Another thing, Greg. We both got the badge, but 1 awarded?

The hard badge will be slower to award because it wasn’t recorded in Kongregate’s high scores. Our system checks the high scores first, then awards you the badge if you’ve already placed a high score that would qualify you to earn a badge. The hard badge misses this check because it’s not in the high scores. However, the game itself retroactively submits your game completion progress once the game is loaded (I specifically asked the developer to do this). So that’s why it’s a bit slower.

And the # awarded stat is always delayed a bit.

I see. Good to know and keep up the good work.

Fun. Reminds me of http://www.kongregate.com/games/ArcadePanic/line-game?acomplete=line.

I have the perfect suggestion to stop 13 year olds and bots from making accounts on Kongregate.

Special Thanks: Reddit for pointing this idea out and Chuck E Cheeses for the idea

Ok, so one of the things that people should do before making an account is to verify their age. The best way we can do this is by a math problem.

This would stop any underage kid from going on to kongregate and since it is a math problem alt bots would be harder to create to. (This plan isn’t really thought out since this is a rare 2:00 AM EST post)

You’re just implying that underage kids cannot do math. I could solve 43 + 54 when I was 3 years old. Also any kid could just put the problem into a calculator to complete the registration process.

Your ability to solve math problems has nothing to do with your age. Any 4 year old kid can solve a complicated math question if their mom tells them how to do it. And then there are always people who are 13+ but still cannot solve a simple math question due to lack of proper education or mental disabilities (and it might not be the best idea ever to exclude people who don’t know the solution to 43 + 54 from Kongregate).

Then the question is… what do expect people to know when they become 13?

I really wanted the badge name to be “Know Thyself,” but then I realized that this name is already used in One Step Back. I’m running out of combinations of English words here…

That’s why you have a community to help you come up with names.

I saw this post today! I never knew this was a topic in the forums. I’ll probably break some rules for asking these things, so don’t ban me plase, just punch me a little (and answer me, of course, since I don’t know the answers).

First, all the badges you add are retroactive?

Second, I know the rules for suggestions (more than 3.8) but, I was wondering, since there aren’t a lot of badges of graphic adventure games, and I like them a lot. Why don’t you add badges to games of him? http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/Hyptosis

he makes a lot of good games, and some are badged! (like the hood) but the others that have good rating (like sagittarian) aren’t.

Is it because of that API thing that keeps being mentioned in this thread? I don’t know what that is, or what it stands for, so I don’t know if it’s because of that or what.

Thank you for your time, and I would like if you had in mind bading those kind of adventure games in the future! (you did a great job with the last door!)

API is how the games report stats. In other words the mechanics needed for badges to work at all.

medium ~ reach level 10 (Hells In Fire Badge)

I played the game a bit until i reached level 5, i’m shocked when i level up so fast, the game was fun, different from other legend games. I’m not sure if the “power” stat. is working.

Yes level 10 seems enough.

Maybe a little harder math than that. Think I could solve that when I was 8 but nice idea.

As a room owner in a non english room users may use words that abuses the rules. Most censored words are english so it would be nice if room owner could edit the allowed words in the rooms and censor them. This way the swedish chatroom for example could get rid of swears and insults nobody in the other chat rooms cares about. And it would be less job for those who work on censoring words on kongregate.
