Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / How often do new sets come out?

@Sabroso84, if powercreep is so damaging to the longevity, how come this game has lasted so long and is still going strong?

I think I agree but want to hear what others thing.

Well, is it true that each new set is more powerful than the last?

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / What to do in Tyrant after the first few days?

What do you do in clans? So I join a clan, then I play vs other clans? Is clan warfare the ultimate play method?

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / What to do in Tyrant after the first few days?

After a few days playing missions, I’m not really seeing the point of what else there is to do… for you guys who’ve played the game for over a month, what keeps you coming back?

What does that mean? Once a month? Once every 3 months?

And also, are new sets always more powerful than the last?

How often do new sets come out? Is there a history page somewhere to see when stuff came out?

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Difference between Gold and Dragon Coins?

I’m new to the game and confused. What’s the difference between Gold and Dragon Coins? Besides the obvious fact that things cost at least 100x more in Gold.

For example:

- How can I win gold, by playing games or other things too?

- Can I win Dragon Coins?

- Why doesn’t the game just have one currency? I see that there are items you need Dragon Coins for, but why? Why not just price them in Gold too.

- Does it really cost money just to change your name?

I guess I want someone more experienced to the game to explain the currency system to me, because it is somewhat confusing.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / kongregateAPI.loadAPI never calls the callback? JS integration problem

Yep, I think that’s it. There’s a problem getting the ansible path: kongregateAPI.getVariable(“kongregate_ansible_path”) is returning “undefined”, which is why the #ansible object has data=“http://undefined”

Kongregate devs, can I get a response to this? Looks like a bug.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / kongregateAPI.loadAPI never calls the callback? JS integration problem

I think the problem is that the “ansible” (the Flash object that serves as a bridge between Flash and AJAX, hence the name faBridge) is not being initialized properly. Perhaps the function FABridge__bridgeInitialized isn’t being passed the correct parameter? I suggest this after debugging it more, and seeing that the ansible object is being created with data=“http://undefiend”

See below, this was what I saw in my browser:

<div><object width="1" height="1"><param><param></object></div>

Topic: Kongregate APIs / kongregateAPI.loadAPI never calls the callback? JS integration problem

I’m an experienced web developer working on integrating the Kongregate API into a JS/HTML5 iFrame game.

I downloaded the zip file example from the docs page (http://developers.kongregate.com/docs/api-overview/client-api)

I’m having a problem though: kongregateAPI.loadAPI never calls the callback function passed to it. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone get this to work?

Also, if anyone is curious, kongregateAPI.loadAPI does the following (I dug into it, trying to figure out where the bug is):

kongregateAPI.loadAPI = function(callback) {
var that = this;
var passToCreateAnsible = function() {
services = [“services”, “stats”, “mtx”, “chat”, “sharedContent”];
var faBridge = FABridge.ansible.root();
for (index = 0; index < services.length; index++) {
var service = services[index];
that._services[service] = faBridge.getServices(service);
}
if (typeof callback == “function”) {
callback();
}
};
kswfobject.addDomLoadEvent(function() {
that.createAnsible(passToCreateAnsible)
});
};

Any update on this?

Topic: Kongregate APIs / Running a beta on Kongregate

(This is because if they can’t leave ratings, the comments are more helpful to me than hurting the game’s reputation. This is the opposite of something like the iPhone App Store, where early bad ratings can sink your app’s reputation)

Topic: Kongregate APIs / Running a beta on Kongregate

In that case, I don’t want it to be as polished as the normal game is. The reason is a quicker time-to-market. I’d rather get started game balancing asap rather than screw around finding every single edge case by myself.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / Running a beta on Kongregate

I’m wondering how polished I need to make the game before going with a beta. Are beta games typically pretty well made? Can beta users leave comments and ratings on the game? If so, I’d want to make my game pretty polished before going to beta. If not, I’d go to beta sooner.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / Running a beta on Kongregate

Is there a support page / pdf / someone I can speak with about running a beta on Kongregate? Maybe a case study to read the steps a typical game took to run a beta on Kongregate?

Thanks.
