Almost perfect beginner run, under 9 minutes should be possible, but requires too much luck.

Maist, but the problem affects other browsers too, don’t they use NPAPI anyway?

Best, i get the same result on bubblebox, notdopler, newgrounds. I’ve downloaded an swf and it appears to be only 10 kb, which might mean that it only directs me to actual game, which is somewhere else, but somehow it’s blocked by something (?) Or so i understand it. Anyways, without any browser addons/plugins and with antivirus/firewall disabled, it still doesn’t work.
@Maist below, didn’t think of it, will try tomorrow, thanks for suggestion.

Hey Elldaman311, i tried ie 10, and latest firefox, chrome and opera (which self-updated recently and became chrome), and neither of those do work for me. I also reinstalled flash and that didn’t help too. I still get intro with BubbleBox.com and black screen after that.

Oh, the last round already. Time sure flies fast, i thought it’s still the middle of tournament.
Anyways, how do i fix the black screen in spikes game?

Topic: Kongregate / You are going to try to win the heart of your boyfriend/girlfriend by introducing him/her to a romantic night playing Kongregate games.

Topic name made me laugh a bit :)

It made me remember some old events too.
A few years ago, me and my friend needed to get to another city, we had to ride two trains (1st→2nd and 2nd→3rd city), but the first one was two hours late (something broke in it), so when we arrived, we missed the second one. It was 1 am, and the next train in that direction was going to arrive at 5:30 am. My friend talked to station employees, and they offered us a small room to stay, as a compensation. Well, at least something, thought i. There was nothing much to do, so then, my friend plugged in and opened his notebook and invited me to play HoMM III with him, and i gladly agreed, i really loved that game. We played for 4 hours, in almost complete darkness, with only notebook screen illuminating the room a bit, in a town we’ve never been to, and didn’t plan to stay for long initially. There was something really romantic about it :) After 4 hours, i was losing seemingly, as he controlled around 80% of castles by that point, but it was already time to gather up our stuff and get outside to wait for another train.
So yeah, that’s my short “romantic night playing games” story.

On topic, i don’t think that playing flash games, regardless of site, would be a good idea, if the goal is to have a romantic night, that is. Your acquaintance might just not even have it in his/her interests at all. Otherwise, a few more problems raise anyway; first one is that flash games are mostly single player, so the only thing you might do is provide your computer to him and let him play the game he wants, while you watch. Or vice versa. Which is lame. Or you may play some multiplayer flash game together, but, from my experience, not all of them are quite good. Especially those clickity-click-click-click-over9ktimer-paykredstoremoveit. (wait, those are single player technically)

Though, some are quite good, imo. For example that one, where you had a map with countries on it, and “army” numbers in them, and with each move, you placed orders to move armies to adjacent countries, and the goal was to capture the entire world, and i believe, there was a multiplayer too. Don’t remember the name anymore. Probably might recommend it for a “romantic night playing kongregate games” thing~

Vexation — 30, thanks to mikerspd for explaining the trick.

oO: 46
oO 1 oO 2

vex:
stage 7 — 44
stage 8 — 34
stage 9 — 55
vexation — 73

According to others’ scores, there might be a way to skip vexation majorly, but i failed to figure that out…

Tried to play that curve game yesterday — pressed play, was assigned, got immediately kicked out. No training with AI either. Already don’t like it, please leave me out if possible.

I didn’t quite understand. Each player from the team should pick only one game, or should he try both? In the end, the final result for a certain game is the highest score among all players in that team, or a sum of scores from all players of that team? Sorry if that’s already in the rules somewhere, maybe i missed it.
Edit: thanks Lebossle.

Hmmm~

Tier 2. (well, that’s a bit surprising!)
I joined kongregate in summer 2012, was attracted by achievement collecting stuff (and i didn’t do that before on any other site). So far i only participated in Ceasar’s tournament, and i was lucky to get into the finals back then. I think it’s mostly because game-breaking bugs were being found a lot, thus often (in pretty much all cases actually) games were very conveniently changed from ones i didn’t have a chance with, to ones i played relatively decently :)

Nowadays, i rarely play flash games, and probably my skills are not what they’re used to be, but since Best kindly invited me to his tourney, and he’s such a nice guy, i decided to give it a shot :) Despite i most likely won’t be spending too much time playing to polish my scores, i’ll do my best to participate in every round and achieve as high scores as i can.

Thanks Best for invitation. I’m not sure if i can dedicate much time to the tourney, so maybe i’d better be in reserve or something.

Cool argument, bro

No, he probably just means that there are more people who don’t express their opinion about games in forum/chats than ones who do, so the latter part is a minority in some sense.

That second badge is quite easy, there should be some stunlock combo mentioned in top comments, with help of that i got it in several tries.

Topic: Kongregate / How to search with multiple tags

Well, this thing doesn’t seem quite popular, and i doubt it’s much of a help, but i’ll advertise it again: http://zalbee.intricus.net/kong/tags.html
It’s frozen in its current stage for quite a long time and lacks functionality i’d wanted, but still a way for multitag search. There isn’t unity tag in the list for some reason though…

Topic: Kongregate / B ug found

This sometimes happens, afaik it’s the problem with how the browser handles placeholders. Exists for quite a long time. Dunno, try refreshing the page with ctrl+f5? And wait until the page loads completely before starting to chat.
