Topic: Technical Support / Ocassional problem

Hmm, that would explain it…would be nice if they just had some verify you’re actually here playing this stuff sorta system instead.
As much as I hate captcha it’s a better alternative to just going nope we’re not even telling you what we’re up to.

Thanks, least I have some idea why it happens then :p

Topic: Technical Support / Only you can prevent poorly placed ads...

Yeah, that is why I said only use them if you have to.
If you do lower the money they make from advertising you’ll either be making them more likely to add to the number of games with pay to win sorta crap which seriously has ruined a fair few otherwise decent games or just making them less motivated to keep the site running.
That said sometimes things force you to use ad blockers atleast temporarily at which point if they are dodgy sorts of malicious ads you’d probably be better off using something like ghostery which stops the malicious advertisers tracking you.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat/newer flash player

Hmm, that kinda sucks.
Then again the later flash versions do seem a bit less user friendly than before so I suppose it’s not that much of a surprise.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat/newer flash player

Uhh yeah, Firefox for general stuff/flash games and whatever and opera for downloads because opera has a more beastly download setup than any browser I’ve seen.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat/newer flash player

Well a while back I upgraded to one of the latest flash player versions which is when this started, anyway before I could click into the typing field right from the game and type there without issues but since I updated I have to double click on the page background to unanchor from the flashplayer before I can click in the textbox or else my key presses count as input for the game rather than the chat.

I assume this is due to me somehow mystically screwing flash up when I upgraded and not something the people at adobe intended with the update, if this is just what the update intended then sorry for wasting time but yeah if there’s any way to fix it so I don’t end up killing myself in games when i’m trying to type I would love to know.

Topic: Technical Support / Only you can prevent poorly placed ads...

Not sure if kong is one of the many sites that tells you not to use an adblocker but even if it is you can get around it by blocking trackers and not advertising (it kills nearly every advert anyway) which also means less people know what sites you visit and stuff (yay privacy n stuff) while technically sticking to the rule so many sites have of don’t use ad blocking software her.

If you need names of addons to block trackers stuff like scriptno or ghostery work fine, ghostery being the simplist one I ever heard of.
Only block adverts on sites if they seriously impede the ability to do stuff on the sites though since you obviously like a site to use it and adverts help pay the site owners bills n stuff.

Topic: Technical Support / annoying chat...

Yeah, chat.kongregate is what stores local data like game saves.
I don’t think local saving is the best thing for developers to do since people can easily modify save data if it’s stored on their pc but in the end that’s up to each developer.

Anyhow after that off-topic rant I have to say allow it since it only needs a minor amount (game saves (for flash games)tend to be tiny like a few kilobytes though some may be around 1 meg if they are extremely complex saves) and not allowing it will almost certainly mean non of the games save.

Topic: Technical Support / Ocassional problem

Well this has happened to me twice in the past few months but anyway after a massive grind on games by one developer occasionally flash will crash then attempts to reload anything by that dev for like a few hours maybe a day land me 400 bad request errors.

Looking for some idea as to why this happens or how to fix it since stuff like clearing the cache doesn’t do anything for it.

Topic: General Gaming / Bloons TD 4 Achievements... Help!

pretty sure that the achievement is wrong about which tracks it is sorta since it says the tap track as one (and the 4th is shaped like a tap) which I think is the 4th track…
