Topic: Kongregate / EvlPixie

Yeh that kinda makes sense.

Can a mod move this then?

This is more a “FYI” than anything else.

@Vanguarde2 AFAIK, nope… no loot.

Topic: Kongregate / EvlPixie

I have just received news that a long time kong friend, EvlPixie, has just recently passed on after a long battle with cancer.

Just wanted people who knew her to know.

Rest in Peace

Cheers

That’s because pubmatic is a ad server.

Topic: Game Programming / mofunzone.com STEALING your GAMES?!!!

eh you can’t really encrypt it, since its all bytecode in the end.
The best you can do is obfuscate the code to make it extremely hard to read.

Topic: Technical Support / Ajaxical Chat

I’m in Australia. 512kbps shared by 4 people = painful experience.

I pretty much gave up playing games on Kong because i couldn’t get my badges anymore because I could never connect to the server. Then again that was like… about half a year ago? maybe things have improved now, who knows. I started working and haven’t had time to play anymore anyway :D

And i’ve come across some sites with pull-chat.

Its no biggie ^^

Topic: Technical Support / Ajaxical Chat

My understanding is that because regular chat is socket based, a timeout causes a disconnection. So I can never stay online for more than a minute.

Ajax-chat would be merely pulling the chat out from the chat service, so even if the chat is delayed a little, I can still read it at least!

Will check out BOSH (haven’t been konging for a while… because I couldn’t chat :P )

Topic: Technical Support / Ajaxical Chat

Is there a way you could implement a feature where, if chat does not connect, fall back on an ajax version of chat?

At home my internet is too slow for chat (drops out 90% of time).
At work I’m firewalled.

I miss my kong friends :(

Topic: General Gaming / Mechanical Commando Survival

There are no specific maps for waves. Each set of 5 waves contains 1 of the different types of waves. Some theoretically some people could go through without ever meeting 4xSuperTank.

Topic: Game Programming / Vertical Scrolling Shooter in Theory

30 is good. Some people might tell you 60 though. That’s a little overkill, imho.

Stay away from Tweening. You’re working in AS3.0, so you’re a big boy now. Having the exact location of every bullet will make your life easier without using hitTest() every frame on every bullet.

Topic: General Gaming / Notessimo 2 Beta - Get your song featured !

lol that high Bflat in Bohemian just made me laugh. Wasn’t even close. Guess there are limits.

I think notessimo is sorta taking away the fun with all the “real” instruments. Part of the fun/skill in Mario Paint was finding the right combo of sounds with the right sequence of notes on a single 1 layer stave. ^^

For the record I’m working on something big. ^^ Well… maybe not as big as bagel’s stuff, since i have my own stuff to do. But someone on my youtube said he was awaiting a new one from me, so I had to oblige.

edit: starburst your songs rawk.

Topic: Game Programming / Suggestion: Multiplayer API

The problem I think wasn’t so much that a multiplayer api was hard to do.
The resources associated with multiplayer games is simply too high for it to be feasible at the moment.
Especially if they’re going to simply let anyone use it.

That’s what I think anyway.

Topic: Game Programming / SilverLight

Eh? A flash wrapper? Around silverlight? Not happening.

Letting users do silverlight applications can be as simple as letting people upload that specific format (what is the format extension for Silverlight anyway?) So its really just up to Kongregate to decide whether it is worth opening up the site to Silverlight stuff.

But currently, no you can’t :)

Topic: General Gaming / Too Many Badges?

I’ve stopped badge collecting. Uni is taking up too much time :(

Badges are simply a way to work towards some sort of achievement (to get a badge, to level up etc).

If that sort of achievement isn’t what you want, then why collect badges? Not like its going to alter the Kong Experience™ if you don’t get all the badges. Levels don’t even mean a thing in Kong.

If it were that important to you, then all the more reason why Greg should keep making them. Else, it would be worthless if everyone else waited for you to catch up.

Come Winter Holidays, I’ll get back all the badges I missed… just you wait…
