Topic: Kongregate / MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...

Yes, all these new “top games” seem to be MMO’s which is really annoying. If I wanted to play an MMO i’d go to an MMO site, not a flash game site….

dear wakslo , pls try to clear the cookies and refresh the page, hope that can help you.
if it didn’t help. please provide us more information for checking. Thanks.

sorry for the inconvenience.

More information… How about you try to make a new account on the latest server (frost). Go through the tutorial if you can get through the problems. Then check your tasks. One of them is equip a weapon. Do that. Then check the task. It is not finished. Repeat for each task in your list and see which ones do/do not get finished.

This is called testing and should be done BEFORE a game is released.

Some people are way too lazy to fix their own problems.

My own problems? I was working fine on the old chat, no lag whatsoever. Now with the new version I, and plenty others, are experiencing lag. My computer is plenty fast and my internet connection is fast (I work from home and my company sprung for the top tier). So what do you say mr fix your own problems, what do you suggest I do to fix my own problems that didn’t exist until the new chat came to life?

Some people haven’t had this issue, including my Regs. Kong has acknowledged that this was an unexpected bug and that they’re working on fixing it.

Right, but you have to see why people who have the lag problems don’t like the new chat. I think the new chat is great, it looks cool, has nice features, etc. etc. etc. But I want a way to use the old one simply because the new chat SEVERLY LAGS every single game I play. Once that is fixed I will love the new chat, but until then I want it buried in a deep hole where they can fix it without making me stop playing games…. without my games what else do i have???

I’m trying to have patience, but I can’t play any games until they fix the lag problem. I just want a button that lets me use the old chat until they fix it.

One big thing I like and don’t like is the message you get when you achieve a badge.

If someone can design a sidebar to know what badges I have surely Kong can do it too.

Yes, this is really silly. It’s a cool feature to throw in there, just didn’t quite finish it all the way.

Topic: Kongregate / Ideas to enhance the new chat

well freyr, my comment was about the new chat. Adding a button to revert to teh old one while they work the kinks out of the new one would be an enhancement.

Mine lags with IE and FireFox, no difference.

And please, do something about this play another game to get badges “feature”. It is so annoying to have the award tab show up saying go play this game and get the badges when you already have the badges for the game…..

Yes, a “Use old chat” button would be nice until they fix the terrible lag issue. The site is unusable until they do :(

Topic: Kongregate / Ideas to enhance the new chat

I have a suggestion, make a button to revert to the old chat for those that are hving serious lag issues. That way they can make changes and those who are working fine can use the new chat and test them. Those that are having the problems with the new chat will be on the old version and still be able to use the site.

Sort of like a beta release of a new software. Throw it out so people can use it. When it’s working you release it to everyone. You don’t release it until all of the unacceptable bugs are fixed :)

They said they talked to people about what they wanted and this is what they came up with. We just missed out on our chance for input, and you can’t blame kong for that. Well, I guess you can blame whomever you like, but it’s not fair to blame them for you not chiming in when they asked for features.

But, it is kinda funny that the name now has a little BETA tag next to it. That’s good, this is now a beta site and that does make up for the problems. I’m a developer and I do the same thing, put out a beta version to get some real world use and fix the bugs. But if you have a BETA site where is the non beta version :)

nice little rant there stealthboy. But change is sometimes a good thing. The new chat window is pretty slick, but people are usually against change. They said they did get a beta group together, listened to what people wanted and did their best. You can’t expect them to poll every single user and get their input. It will always be I want A and someone else saying A sucks.

If we want to complain about the new features we should have done that when they were asking about it a while back. The main problem is if you’re going to release a new thing on the site you have to have a backup plan just in case it fails miserably, like the chat did. It’s one thing to move items around and what not, but killing the ability to use the site for what it’s created for is a major problem and should be rolled back. That’s my main complaint, like I said people get over visual changes in a few weeks.

Just to harp on the issue. I know this is a new look, a new an exciting look. New features, new everything. But, lots of software let’s you go back to classic mode, Windows is a big one. Why not have a classic mode so we can go back to what was working while you work out the bugs on the new cooler version.

People are going to complain about the items being in new places, but people always complain when things look different. They’ll get over that, you all made good decisions. The thing people won’t get over is not being able to play games on a site that, well, is meant for playing games.

Should is the keyword, sadly it’s not doing what it “should”.

My stats:
IE 7
Windows XP
Flash 10??
Just standard IE. I have norton, but it still runs alot slower even with norton off.

Any chance we’ll be able to switch back to the old chat while the beta version of the new one get’s fixed? I can’t play games with this chat which sucks.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Release (NEW CHAT!) - CR 2009.04.22

Ok, so the new chat looks cool. Or, really cool. But it needs some work. A few things that are driving me nuts and I wish I could turn off:

1. A popup comes after you earn a badge saying “Play this other game to earn the badge.” This is great advertising of other games and an awesome idea. But, I keep getting games that I already have the badges for. This makes it really annoying. If it’s too much work in the db to only show the games you don’t have badges for give the user an option to turn it off.

2. I play dinowars alot, what can I say, I like it. Two problems I’m having with it.
2A. Click on Achievements to see the badges, handy but it’s just as handy to have the badges beneath the game like before… but that’s not my problem. The problem is you click on View High Scores to see the high score listing. Now click on the chat tab and then back to Achievements. You now see the little red boxes of each players level like you would on the rankings, but it has the badges in the background, not the player names.

2B. I’ve always played the game in high res, no performance problems anywhere. Now, I am on low res, and the game is way to choppy. Almost too choppy to even play. I’m on the same pc, same internet connection, same everything except the new chat window. So I can only assume the chat window is severly bogging things down, killing my performance, making me not able to play :(

If this is still a work in progress can it be released to people who won’t mind being beta testers rather than releasing a buggy program out to everyone? Or can there be a way to revert back to the old way?

it makes the games too laggy to even play. It looks nice, has some good ideas, but if it’s going to kill performance I would rather go back to teh old version.
