Topic: Technical Support / Computer crashing with Kongregate flash files

First off, is the game a Unity game? Most people have trouble loading the Unity games especially. My suggestion would be to try it in another browser, preferably Google Chrome.

Make sure you’re allowing Kongregate to store unlimited information on your computer. This can be a problem. Easy fix is:
Right Click Game Window > Settings > Slide the Slider to the Far right for Unlimited data. (Don’t check the box “Never Ask Again”)

What OS are you running? And how old is your computer?

Achievements!

Kongregate isn’t just about the Achievements. You also have the chat to meet people or get help in a game. The forums in which you are using right now require an account. There is the Collabs section. You get cool entries into epic giveaways. Badges of the Day for Power Up Rewards Points. There is a lot more to do on Kongregate than you would think!

And if you’re a developer, the whole Developer aspect to the site!

Topic: Technical Support / chat column too big

“Ctrl -” (Control + Hyphen, the button next to zero) zooms out. Or “Ctrl +” zooms in. Or hold Ctrl and Scroll up or down to zoom in and out. If you’re running on Windows 8. I noticed this problem as well at first. And like I said in another post. I would suggest Google Chrome fully updated and default browser instead of IE. Or if you want to go old school, roll with Mozilla Firefox.

Topic: Technical Support / Playing any game on Kong Issue

I have noticed the same problem for Windows 8. Some easy solutions for it would be:

- Make sure if you’re using IE, that it is your Default Browser.
- Make sure if you’re using Google Chrome, that it is your Default Browser.
Both of these reasons are because they have updated their browsers for Windows 8 so they run better.
Also make sure you have updated these browsers.

Or, simply just Download Mozilla Firefox and run it from the desktop mode for Windows 8. If you don’t have the Desktop mode icon, create a shortcut from the Apps, It should be on the far left hand side when you’re looking at all apps and files.

I suggest using Google Chrome as your browser because for Windows 8, it runs the best. I don’t believe Firefox has made a dedicated browser for Windows 8 yet. Chrome, when being the default browser, will run in the Windows 8 and not need the desktop as long as it is fully updated and default browser. And like the desktop icon, Google Chrome has a tile as well.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Plus/ Power Up Rewards Pro problems

So you’re being refunded then StalCloud, is this going to be for the others that also have this problem? I purchased my K+ as well as PuR membership literally withing a week or two. And it’s not that I want my money back
A Gamestop gift card or just bonus Kreds in general. Like maybe 250 or something? It’s not that I regret spending the $30. It feels like it was basically just taken as othera have said. They knew this was coming so why not tell people first or drop the price. I would still be spending that $30 either here or Gamestop.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Plus/ Power Up Rewards Pro problems

Understood and I agree. They all can’t get the Charter member like I do. But, still. It’s still offered for $30 with no special benefits. True Kong Plus members should be given more. We are treated the exact same and it’s not fair. We don’t get quadruple points on the Badge of the Day things or anything. They need to change the price, or change the benefits if they are going to keep doing something like this. Or like you said. Refund those who purchased it and have recently purchased a Pro membership or already own one. I didn’t get the email until AFTER I renewed it. After I renewed both that is. Because I purchased K+, then a week later on my next check, got Pro again. It should have been sent to those who already have it to. Gamestop is also at fault for this.

And for Advocatus. The difference would be $30. That’s not right for Kongregate to pay that. Gamestop should have to fix it. Give Uber Bonus points, or easily send me a coupon for $30 instore credit. They would get their money back. But, at least I would be satisfied.

“A Pro membership is a paid membership for only $14.99”, which I already knew, because I’m a member. I never save jack shit with the card, but I do like the Game Informer magazine and having my account linked so I can earn the Power Up Rewards Points for BOTD. The thing is, I just paid $29.99 to renew my Kong+, so I feel like I’ve gotten fucked, paying for something that I would have gotten for free.

100% agree.

So basically Kongregate screwed over those who actually spent $60 dollars on the website. Almost like a bunch of cheap skates. I find it a load of crap that I spent $60 only to receive 100 Kreds. A whopping $8.75 and I could have bought that. I purchased Kong+ from the start not only to get rid of the ads cause they can be a pain but to kind of give back to Kong because I got a free what, 4 1/2 YEARS of epic badge and flash game playing? I think Kongregate ripped all those out of spending money on their website. 50 Kreds is a rip and I have been a Pro Rewards Member for over 3 years now. And purchased K+ right from the start.

All I get from being loyal to Kongregate is a whopping 100 Kreds. I liked being some of the only ones to have a K+ but now so many people have it, it’s crazy.

I understand that it’s just a promo to get people to join Kongregate. But, you also have to realize, you just fucked over loads of loyal people that actually paid for Kong+. A whopping 100 kreds isn’t worth it. If you gave us $15 worth of kreds, and the bonus kreds, for those who purchased K+, it might be. But still. I spent what, $59.98 for K+ and $45 for PUR Pro just to be fucked with only $8.75 worth of Kreds?

The only thing I actually got good out of this was about $600 saves at Gamestop, which does absolutely nothing for me on Kongregate.

But, like I said. Kongregate just fucked all of their true people because they haven’t done anything to compensate those charter members or anyone who purchased it right before the promo started. Thanks a lot dicks.

Maybe look into rewarding those who actually purchased K+ with PUR Points? Like 5000? Because 1 point is basically 1/10 of a penny on the rewards website. If Gamestop nor Kong do this, You guys just failed miserably. And don’t just do it for those who are just not doing it. Go into your system and fix it for all who have purchased it.

Ok so it’s based on how many people, not the score. So if 10 are at 11, only those with 11 would be eliminated. Not the 12s or higher. Thanks!

Say there were to be 3 more to enter and get 22 or over. Would that mean that ALL of those 19, 20s, and 21s are out? I apologize if this has already been answered.

Understood. Why would they have been discontinued? I feel like it takes 3 months to get new ones but that’s not a big deal.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Mobile Badges... Cancelled?

Why does it matter if you have to pay for a game to get badges or buy a new phone that is Android just to get the mobile App? Why does that even matter? Kongregate doesn’t force you to pay for an Android phone. It’s not like they are going to ban you from the website if you don’t. And why complain that you can only get “Mobile” badges on a mobile device only? Isn’t that the whole point?

I missed the ones I NEVER miss and got the ones I always miss. I give up.

And… I love this game! Too bad I suck at it… I felt like doing both.

Oh would it help if I put links? I guess it doesn’t really but here you go!

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: New navigation and footer test and changes to developer payment history pages

I like it a lot… I think it looks well polished and makes the site look so much cleaner, not that it wasn’t clean before. But I like it being smaller at the top, and the fact that I do have to go up and hover over something to go somewhere is awesome. I can’t tell you how many times my mouse is floating at the top and I accidently touch the track pad and it jumps somewhere else. I do wish it could be a little bit better on the badges side, I am lazy and it would be great if I could just go up to badges and jump off to like the newest badges, rather than having to go through the badges page. Also, where did the home tab go? Can we add that back on please. Or at least have something in the games tab with a “Newest Games” choice or “Hottest Games”. Those would be great. But other wise I like it a lot. I, unlike some others, love the profile tab now. And I am glad I can see my friends in the community tab written like this. It’s so much less annoying.

Topic: Kongregate / Find out where your points come from!

Well I don’t know if it’s the case or not because I don’t feel like going through and manually adding all my stuff up haha. But, maybe is it because of the 15 signed up points bonus? Or did we get points for linking accounts up to PowerUp rewards?

Also, there is a way to download a .py file and run it in the command prompt. I have done it once, but I don’t know how and can’t redo how I did it. And no, it was not the black and white window that looks like a command prompt but is just a different Python interpreter.
