Topic: Backyard Monsters / Kixeye no longer supporting BYM on Kongregate

I came to Kong because my FB yard (early player, yard# 1xxxxx) was broken and unplayable. They better have a way to rectify that or I am going to raise holy hell.

According to the wiki, feeding a L3 drull to L4 should require 25 bandito. I’m having to feed 50, every time. Thinking it was a glitch, I juiced my drull and started over, but the replacement is getting hit with the same thing. What’s going on here?!

Side note about “recycling town halls” — it’s not possible now, but back in the early days of the game, it was possible, And it was a Bad Idea. I had a facebook yard over two years ago; many of the things taken for granted now didn’t exist. If I remember right, monster bunkers were promised but not online yet. Anyway, I got frustrated with it after about a month because I was being farmed and couldn’t stop it. So, to keep the yard from being farmed ever again (once I abandoned it) I deconstructed it completely, INCLUDING the TH. I went back this year to try and revive that yard. I can’t. I don’t know about this “cell 0” that gets mentioned, but I get no yard, only a grey background, and a my.id# “not found” error message. Kixeye support has been useless; I got a boilerplate email saying “they were aware of it” and no action. For me, the FB app is still unusable. Considering that I (and all) FB users “pay” for the game usage by granting the app (and the company behind the app) access to their friend list and other profile elements, I am really honked off that they got the access, but didn’t hold up their end of the bargain. So, it’s a GOOD thing that current players are prevented from recyling their TH’s!

Topic: Technical Support / Can't Login With FireFox

Still having no joy. I’m logged in, in one sense, as you can see by my posting, but I still can’t access my profile, the dropdown doesn’t appear. And going to Backyard Monsters (the only game I play right now) still generates the “Message: Kongregate authentication data not found (2)” error.

Grumble, no www connection all day.

I happen to have a FF extension called BetterPrivacy that automatically locates and lets me clear flash cookies, so I didn’t have to search; it hasn’t been automatically deleting them, as it could. Which flash cookies do I need to protect, if I reconfigure for autodelete?

Anyway, I did clear all flash and regular cookies “for all time”, I figure logging in again will rebuild them. All that’s left is to reboot. Just wanted to update folks.

When flash becomes too outdated, I will either simply stop playing, or join the howling mob at Adobe’s gates to get them to resume developing it. Or hope that the www will have found a new standard to adopt?

I’m also having this problem, but starting only when I “upgraded” from Firefox 14 to Firefox 15. OS=Linux (Debian “Lenny”-based), Java 7u7, Flash 11.2. Other weird symptoms I’m seeing (when I should be resuming previously open session) is “Unhandled Exception” message on grey background instead of game (Backyard Monsters) screen AND, even though I’m apparently not logged in, my ACTIVITY is visible as if I was logged in! I can click the “see all” link and get the full list, even though I’m still seeing the username and password boxes are still at the top, not my avatar and dropdown menus. It works, sort of, under Opera — but Opera tends to freeze on me at the best of times. Chrome is working the best right now.

EDIT: ZShadows instructions changed nothing for me as well.
