Topic: Kongregate APIs / UK tax situation

I had to send my Passport and application for a tax ID to the US Embassy in London. My first attempt was rejected because I didn’t have a valid passport at the time. It was a lot of hassle and took me a few months.

But, it’s totally worth it. A lot of other services (like Steam) also require that you have a US tax ID, so it’s good to get this out of the way if you plan on doing business with American companies in the future.

Topic: General Gaming / Epic Battle Fantasy 4 Coming out!

The freemium version will probably be out a few months before the Steam one, just to give me time to smooth things out and build hype.

I like to think there’s some overlap between people who visit sites like Kongregate, and people who use Steam, so I think plenty of Steam users should already know about me. But who knows, Steam appear to be pretty secretive with their data, so I don’t know what to expect for sure.

Topic: General Gaming / Mardek 3 vs. Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Epic Battle Fantasy series is supposed to be a ripoff of Final Fantasy, that should be pretty obvious by the title screen.

Topic: General Gaming / EBF3 No Imp?

There is no impossible badge because Greg thought it would frustrate a lot of people and lower the game’s rating.

Topic: General Gaming / EBF3 - Most unfair/overpowered enemy in the game?

I’m kind of considering bringing back the Mecha from EBF1 as a secret boss, but I probably won’t get round to that for a few months.

And I’ll have to make him way harder than monoliths, for sure.

Topic: General Gaming / Mardek 3 vs. Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The length of Mardek puts me off, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it if I manage to find the time.

Does the donation include the “On Hold” stuff as well or just the balance for this month?

I hope so, you games are…

I’m sure Greg will give badges to Epic Battle Fantasy and/or Epic Battle Fantasy 2- I think he likes those games, and they have a good average rating.

Who is Greg?

I did not have display in leaderboards checked.
I think it works now.
Thank you very much for the help.

Topic: Game Programming / API problem

Cool, I’ll check it out.
Though the score is just really how much progress you’ve made into the game, so everyone will end up with the same.
So I’ve just got it down as a statistic. Not really sure what the difference is though.

My game’s here:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/493714

Basically the score goes up by 1 everytime a wave of enemies is defeated, and the stat also depends on the difficulty setting:

daScore +=1
if(difficulty == “easy”){
_root.kongregateStats.submit(“ProgressEasy”,daScore);}
etc

I’ve traced daScore and the if statements and they seem to work.

>>I don’t know. Is ProgressEasy a statistic? Is the variable in your code that keeps track of that daScore? Is the submit happening in a location where daScore is being changed?

Yup and yup and yup.

>>The debugger doesn’t work any more.

Is there anyway I can test the statistics?
I’m very frustrated with it so I might just go ahead and publish it regardless of whether they work or not.

Topic: Game Programming / API problem

Hay guys, tryin to upload ma game but I seem to be getting no feedback from the debugger when testing the API.
I’m guessing I prolly missed something important somewhere.
Or maybe I’m just not sure where the feedback is supposed to appear.
The normal chatbox yeah? I’m still pretty new to this site :/

All the code I need is this right?:
_root.kongregateServices.connect();
_root.kongregateStats.submit(“ProgressEasy”,daScore); etc

Argh, really frustrated.
Thanks for any help.
