Topic: Off-topic / Fuck Idle Games

Someone develop a bitcoin miner idle game already, you can see a progress bar move while it eats your cpu and when you hit 100%, the user gets an extra level and the dev gets a free bitcoin… Everybody happy!

Mu Complex: Episode Two is next on the list! I’m thinking just one hard badge for completion; I emailed the developers about getting a progress-related stat, but they explained that this would be tricky because the game is open-ended.

I could possibly do a medium badge for unlocking a command, but I think this would still be pretty hard by medium badge standards (or I’m just really terrible at these sorts of games, though those aren’t mutually exclusive).

Easy for reaching the mainframe? Pretty please?

…I must really suck because I couldn’t reach the mainframe the past 3 days. Do I need to access all other computers or am I missing something…?

You didn’t get past the keypad puzzle that’s like the first actual puzzle in the game?

What keypad puzzle

I just finished up the first branch (the one that ends with eddywolvers) but I didn’t see any keypad puzzle

The mainframe is the first thing you run into after beating the first puzzle. So if you’ve already gone past that, you’ve already been there. It’s the thing that connects you to the 4 rooms with each 2 computers inside. (I think)

If you haven’t, don’t be ashamed and type: ‘help’ in the game, that’ll tell you all you need. :)

Err, it’s a pretty good game

Erm, fyi, that evaluates to about -718. I think ur only allowed one vote. :p

As for my vote: I played it for about 30 minutes and I was bored as hell after about 20 minutes. You start playing with it, but eventually, you’ll run into limits causing you to either go over all of them one by one, or looking it up in a walkthrough or simply buying it. Not to mention the whole game is riddled with commercials and some things simply are bugged (not that much of an issue, ex.: the close window ‘X’ after a discovery sometimes simply doesn’t show, it’s there, you can click it, but it’s not visible at times). At one point I got a commercial that kept popping up after every single action I performed (do something, poof commercial, close commercial, do something, poof, same commercial appears (inside the flash game, NOT on the website)), the only way to eventually get rid of it was to reload the whole game. On top of that, the game asks you to be reloaded for benefits, presumably to artificially increase its play count and potential for ad-clicks. All very shady behaviour imho. I started with a rating of 3 and gradually as I stayed on it longer I reduced it to 2 and eventually to 1. But that’s just me. ^^

Topic: Kongregate / Kongegate Becoming TOO Adult?

Let’s call it the hypocrisy of money. Kong can’t afford to go strictly pg-13 or they stand to lose half the games and over half their paying audience. Strictly speaking, is it all pg-13: very doubtfull; is it hypocritical to claim things and only stick to them when it suits you: probably; is the content really that terribly corrupted and will it turn us into a congregation of antichrists: I doubt that.

Why the hell do you need more than one wish for? Omnipotence is all you need. After that, omniscience is the flick of a finger away.

Yeh, but I couldn’t come up with a 3rd wish in that case lol.

Omnipresence?

Nah, that’s creepy. ^^

Topic: Technical Support / Why is my game screen cut off?

It’s very simple.

First, it’s not your fault.

Second, the developer of that game, upon uploading it to kongregate, chose to upload the game in iframe format. Then they packed their iframe in yet another iframe. That iframe has 900 pixel width. The width of the game content on kong is 800 px. As a result the right 100 px are cut off. You can circumvent this by diving in the source and manually making them all 800 or 900 or you can file a ticket with the developer and ask him to arrange the necessary changes.

(Or maybe some kong admin sees this and does it for him as this can be solved on both kong’s end and the dev’s end?)

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

My personal opinion on mu complex episode 2 (beware spoilers):

Some of the puzzles are extremely convoluted (took me all night to solve the thing completely including hidden stuff). I’m fairly certain that most people will never solve all the puzzles without the assistance of walkthroughs and such more. Not to mention that halfway through the game you begin to realise that lya is up to no good, the clues are scattered all over the place, yet the only way to continue and eventually finish the game is to set her free. So on the one hand you’re supposed to show your superiour intellect by solving some pretty crazy puzzles, on the other hand you’re forced to show stupidity in actually doing what she asks. The hidden audio file on yacine’s computer is the final drop that indicates as soon as you set her free it’s game over for humanity. I guess this paves the way for either episode 3 where you get to stop her doing even crazier puzzles or maybe it’s just the end of the series. Either way, I was not as enthused by this one as by the first installment.

If it were up to me, I would not give it a badge and if it needs to get one based on the popularity, considering the real difficulty of the puzzles and assuming people actually try to solve it themselves, it better be a hard badge (since if you assume people will use a walkthrough once one becomes available, every puzzle game is just easy and it doesn’t reward the effort required to actually do it yourself).

That game does not work for everyone .

I noticed the same thing. You have to allow third party cookies for it to function, either that or manually allow its specific uri (either one time only or continuously) if you have third party cookies blocked in your browser’s settings. Anyone who has any clue about on line privacy has third party cookies blocked by default (however little difference it might make).

Well since we’re all caught up in karma counters and people keep wanting to make alts and such, I vote for only people lvl 65 and above can vote on karma. (chuckle)

Party of Heroes is the next multiplayer game.

I know there generally isn’t a lot of control over multiplayer games, but as Ruudiluca pointed out. It really seems like the developer of that game doesn’t actually want us to play his game. It’s 5 minutes play and then wait for over an hour to play for yet another 5 minutes, or wait less and play less. It makes playing the game really quite a hassle.

I haven’t really played for more than 30 minutes total and have run out of energy 3 or 4 times and you even get a free refill once during the tutorial at that. If it weren’t for this lack of energy and if the rest of the game would be comparable in difficulty ramp it could be an ok game, but the gigantic lack of actually being able to play the darn thing makes it a completely frustrating experience.

As such I can’t stress strongly enough that I don’t think the game is a good badge candidate, however little impact that assessement may have, I still wanted to share it.

@RockLou:
I think Precarious intended those names for the badge for completing the game, not as a name for an actual potential successor that could finish the storyline to that (quite nice) game.

However, in case I misunderstood everyone and you actually want the game name in the badge name, might I suggest: “The Abrupt Awakening”. ^^

For Dream Car Racing completing the 4th level certainly isn’t a medium…

If it needs to be a completion, I suppose you could make it complete the 3rd level.
Considering that all races are about 3000 in length, I suppose you could make it 1500 in 4th level, but I wouldn’t even say completing half the 4th is medium.

Topic: Kongregate / Referrals are broken (kinda).

Since this seems to be mostly about a metric of “how much kong did I do so far to be deserving of this or that plaque”, I would suggest a, imho better option. Instead of reforming the points and levels system which everyone is always complaining about in the sense of this aint right and that aint right and people who get points for badges and such more are at a disadvantage and so forth.

It would seem far better and easier to add to the current system a 2nd ‘awesomeness’ (cough) indicator: a weighted percentage indicator (thus going from 0 to 100) of badgepoints earned (ex.: math.floor(100 * (v easy badges * 5 + w medium badges * 15 + x hard badges * 30 + y impossible badges * 60 + z challenge points)/total achievement points possible)).

That second indicator would immediately solve all potential unfairness problems with the current level indicator and implementing it should be relatively straightforward (1 extra composited column in userdata and a simple calculation on top of displaying it somewhere), that way people who want to brag about how awesome they are in terms of achievements can get their fix and people who like the added points for going beyond simply gaming get their fix too.

Referrals are very valuable to kong btw.

Topic: Technical Support / Top of the page unusable

To start of I’m going to state that I have not found out how to reproduce the issue I’m going to describe, it happens seemingly randomly (though I’m sure it’s not actually random), since I don’t know exactly how to reproduce it, I also don’t know whether or not it’s related to extensions. It has been happening to me occasionally for over a year however. It might be related to kong code or to browser weirdness.

What happens is the top of the page between the height of the games/achievements/my kong menus and about 300px down becomes completely unresponsive to mouse interaction, this includes potential game areas. When this first started happening I had no idea what was going on or how to ‘fix’ it. In the mean while I have found out, that by simply hovering my mouse over the menus to make them appear and then elsewhere again to make them disappear ‘fixes’ the issue in that I can actually interact with said area again with my mouse.

Considering it’s been happening for so long already, I figured it might be interesting to make this post in the hopes of someone at kong checking it out. I made a screenshot of the code that seems to be interfering with normal mouse operations during the times the issue occurs. The area in question seems to be the same size as the dropdown from the mentioned menus and the iframe in question seems to be layered on top of the actual page content so that my mouse clicks don’t register in the desired locations possibly because of the z-index?

Topic: Kongregate / Stop with the messages allready!

FYI, AFAIK Opera is based on the same core as chromium, which in all likelihood means (as far as I could ascertain, since I haven’t used Opera since they changed into a cheap ofspring of chromium with less than half the features of the real Opera I used to love) Opera too will cease to function with NPAPI plugins somewhere in the 2nd half of the year. So in that respect, their message is correct.
