Topic: Kongregate / Anti-cheat: Testing

But again, that’s not something that I can provide a one-step fix for. You’d have to rewrite a game to incorporate such a timing system. My system requires no “installation” but a simple find and replace a few places.

Topic: Kongregate / Anti-cheat: Testing

Actually, I know how to make a game speedhack proof. The problem is, it requires an entire game redesign, because you can set it to run according to system time. Read the system time, determine the time elapsed, go from there. This isn’t something that can be solved by a quick anti-cheat; you have to restructure your entire game to work around a system time based frame system.

Topic: Kongregate / Anti-cheat: Testing

Look, that wasn’t the original point of what I was writing. I’m trying to see if there is a way possible to prevent speedhacking, but I don’t believe there’s ANYTHING out there that can prevent speedhacking, as of now. Except for perhaps your Buggle example, but they’re not releasing.

@AioriaRox, sorry. I just got a bit trigger-happy. Apologies if I made you unhappy. :)

It’s not a timer at all. It’s supposed to demonstrate a “score”, pretend that that number is your score, and you’re “gaining” points.

Well, hopefully I can find some people here. Don’t know who KongregateHack is, unfortunately.

Something like that. I need testing though, because I’m not too great of a hacker. :D

Yes. This is a test for an anti-cheating package I’m writing. Preferably, you can’t hack that with Cheat Engine.

Topic: Kongregate / Anti-cheat: Testing

Hey guys, I’m at a loss as to where I can find testing for an anti-cheat package I’m writing. Figured I’d let you guys stab at it:
Apologies: the link seemed to be down. Alternate:

Basically, try and change the 1000,2000,3000… counter. I’ll see if I can whip up a prize for the first one to break it.

Topic: Kongregate Labs / Shoot!/Kongregate Labs FAQ and Discussion

Judging: Each eligible Submission will be judged upon the following criteria (the “Judging Criteria”): 100% popularity based on the average five-star user rating on Kongregate.com as of 11:59:59 p.m. PT on November 30, 2008. Each submission must have received a minimum of 30 ratings to be eligible.

Well, this little fragment from the rules says that voting goes until “11:59:59 p.m. PT on November 30, 2008”, which means you have another 2 days or so for your game to get voted. So I guess you CAN submit it on the 28th and still get enough votes to win. Oh, and the prize decision is on December 1, right after the voting closes.

Well actually Salvator, there’s nothing in the rules stating that stronglink, even though he HAS submitted a whole bunch of games, can’t compete. All of his games are under 3 stars in rating, so that makes him eligible.

Apologies if you’re female, just replace the "he"s with "she"s. :D

Topic: Kongregate Labs / Shoot!/Kongregate Labs FAQ and Discussion

Hey, I was browsing Kongregate and I was playing some random game, and then…
KONGREGATE LABS! OMGWTFBBQ? What is this? Why is it here?

$250!? Yay, I like money!
Yeah, that was kind of my reaction.
But anyways, getting to the point: What exactly means “Shoot!-like”? (AKA eligible for competition)
Shoot! with modified graphics?
Shoot! itself?
Shoot!, except with Chuck Norris battling Muppets in a vertical top down shooter?
Any game that involves Shooting?

I’m really confused. Not only do I not get what exactly constitutes a game that can be considered Shoot! based and still be accepted, but I also don’t know whether a game that you develop that is entirely NOT based around Shoot!, but is still a shooting (defense) game (you’re not moving, but the enemies are trying to rampage you :D), has moving enemies, upgrades, different weapons and is also your FIRST FLASH GAME ever would count as an eligible submission for the contest. Because I had started a game (tentatively called ColorBlast) a few days ago as my first full Flash project, and I saw this competition. I was just wondering whether this kind of submission would be acceptable? The official rules point to the “rules listed on the webpage”, which kind of defeats the purpose of having official rules because they’re supposed to be concrete, but by referencing a very vague “rules” on the front page makes it so that nobody has any idea what is really acceptable or not.

Topic: General Gaming / Gemcraft or any other flash game TRANSFER SAVE FILE TUTORIAL

Ah yes, just an update on downloaded swf games:
Many of you, like me, probably also download the flash games to play offline onto the desktop or somewhere with something like Unplug, an extension for Firefox.
I listed in my original post that you should look in #LocalWithNet… But I made a mistake.
You should look in there for save files, but also take a look in the “localnet” folder, which far more games save files in than the #LocalWithNet folder.

anyone who can’t find the AppData or Application Data folders (Vista and XP respectively):
you MUST turn on the hidden folders setting in the Control Panel. Go the the Control Panel, go to Folder Settings or something similar, and check the box that allows you to see hidden folders and files. This is because AppData and Application Data are hidden folders.

Oh, i thought you meant for the flash game. LOL
Anyways, folder settings is in control panel, and is actually called folder options.
The option to show hidden files and folders is under the view tab.
This is for Vista, if you’re using XP, just look it up online.

why would you need folder settings?

It decreases the mana loss when a monster, or creep, escapes your gems and hits your fortressy thing.
I really never noticed if it matters at all, i mean, the damage reduction is so slight that it really shouldn’t have any points in it anyways, even if it was activated.
This is the justification I have for saying that this game IS NOT A DEMO.

Topic: General Gaming / Gemcraft or any other flash game TRANSFER SAVE FILE TUTORIAL

never mind Jesto:
The points from the armor games version in the Armor category (the disabled one) STILL WORK in the kongregate edition; I guess the author (GameInABottle) only disabled the button. Heh. But if you reset it, you’ll never be able to put those points back in again unless you put points in the Armor Games version and transfer the file again.

By extension, any ‘disabled’ amulets earned in the Armor Games version should probably show up in the kongregate version too. But you won’t be able to EARN them in this version.

No, since the disabled “ARMOR GAMES ONLY” options are disabled within the actual flash file; i.e. the save file has nothing to do with any limited features in the actual game.
For example, you can’t turn a demo version of Microsoft Word into a full version by taking a “save file” (document) created by a full version and transfer it to and open it with the demo and expect the demo to turn into a full version.

Anyone else pissed that you have to start all over on Gemcraft after playing it on Armor Games, or some other site?

Well, I figured out how to transfer the save file, just follow the instructions:

(BTW, this is for WINDOWS VISTA only, not Macs or Linux. Sorry guys)

(You can probably do it in XP too, just under another folder)

1. Go to Folder Settings in Windows and turn hidden folders ON.

2. Next, go to

C:\Users\YOUR WINDOWS USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\#SharedObjects\SOME RANDOM LETTERS AND NUMBERS\

3. There should be two folders, one named chat.kongregate.com and one named armorgames.com or a different website you played it on

4. Go to the armorgames.com one and copy BOTH giabGencraftPreferences.sol and giabGemCraftSaveData.sol over to the chat.kongregate.com. Overwrite any existing data there.

5. You’re DONE! You can now pick up where you left off, and hopefully make progress towards the new badges (which WILL appear… eventually).


Thanks for reading this. This procedure should work on most other games too, even flashes you’ve downloaded to your desktop. Just look for the .sol files with the other game title in it. Those saves should be under #LocalWithNet\Users\YOUR USERNAME\Desktop\. The procedure should be similar for XP, just under a different folder.
