Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: Developer / ** Bug reports **

The interface on Mars doesn’t work (buttons can’t be clicked etc) until you click at least once outside the scope of any buttons. The bug doesn’t appear on Moon or Earth.

ie if I switch to Mars I can’t change the buy multiplier from x1 to x10 until I click somewhere else first

Would have been nice if there was a noticeable difference on the portrait, or like a congrats message popup, or something.

Topic: Kongregate / Split test: New navigation!

How do I get to the Challenges page now? Sometimes there are multiple challenges running concurrently and in this interface I don’t know where to go to see them.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / User Support

As far as the 4x and 8x speed options, they increase the speed at which the animations play but the time between animations is not affected so the actual speed increase is quite slight. I’d prefer a 2x speed that actually cut the wait between animations or allowed animations to play simultaneously to the existing 4x option.

Topic: Technical Support / Certain games block chat

Certain games seem to prevent incoming or outgoing chat messages while they are in certain states.

For example, the recently uploaded “Battle for Darkness” doesn’t allow chat during battles. At the conclusion of the battle, missed chat messages arrive all at once.

I assume this is due to the game’s implementation of the Kong API, but is there any way to prevent this behavior and stay in chat while playing? If not, what part of their implementation prevents this, and how can Kong API be implemented in a way that does not block chat?

Edit: To be clear, the plug icon remains green and statistics still report, but chat messages aren’t displayed until eg, leaving battle.

If you want that badge, here’s how I did it:

search the name of the achievement, and you will see solution decks for each one.

While that’s helpful, it’s not a list of which 50 achievements are the easiest or quickest to get, for the purposes of earning the “Earn 50 Achievements” Hard Badge. I already linked solution decks for the more difficult of the achievements in my list.

For example, you’d waste a lot of time searching individual achievements looking up stuff that doesn’t unlock until after mission #66, or looking up Annihilator or Honored achievements which take much longer than others to get; also you’d have to check the solution decks for cards that themselves come from missions higher than #66 or from reputation rewards (which are also too slow to get). My list might not be perfect, but it’s free of those time sinks.

Now if somebody wanted to make a 50 Achievements guide for that fansite, feel free to steal my information as a base, and I don’t care about attribution either. It’s just that I spent time making that spreadsheet so I thought I would share my solution for other badge hunters.

As I just got my 50th achievement after only a few days of play, I thought I’d share which achievements I got for any other badge hunters who don’t want to waste time going for unreasonably hard ones.

These achievements you get “for free” on your way to Nexus Conqueror (beat mission #66):

Rise to Power 1
Rise to Power 2
Rise to Power 3
Honorable Commander
Prestigious Leader
Standard Conqueror
Typhon’s Conqueror
Nexus Conqueror

These you pick up by buying a Bronze, Silver, and Gold pack, in that order:

Bronze Advancement
Silver Advancement
Gold Advancement

These you get by entering one tournament and then clicking “fight” then “surrender” 50 times (or of course you can actually play the tournaments, which is the most fun part of the game IMO):

Battle Veteran

And this is the real meat of this list. These are the special victory requirement or speedy completion achievements I earned on my way to 50. Many of these you will earn along the way to mission #66 without needing to do anything special, but I included links to the strategy wiki for the harder ones.

Front-Line Pressure
Sky Control
Brute Strength
Limited Support
Crushing Victory
Damage Sponge
Skill Connoisseur
Slow Roll
Spare the Troops
Speedy Cyprion
Speedy Blackmarsh
Deny Support
Fists of Flurry
Air Raid
Common Theme
Defensive Minded
Encouraging War Cry
Full Circle
Lucky Streak
Supply Lines
Speedy Swamps
Speedy Red Sands
Action Hero
Fear the Reaper
Nexus Heavy Hitters
Speedy Sulfuris
No-Fly Zone
Raiders Unite

Along the way to earning these, I actually made a spreadsheet for all 166 achievements including their requirements and the absolute first mission at which they became available to earn. If you think that might be useful, check it out here:

I really like the new design and hope it or something similar becomes final.

Wow, thanks for that video! That’s definitely easier than how I was trying.

Yes, and then go where? Should I be going over or under the floating platform? If I try under, I kill the grub. If I try over, I run into the grub and fall to the floor.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Remnants of Skystone] Fighting Fires (MD0207) as Ferric

I’m having quite a bit of trouble with one of the rooms in this mission. It’s the fourth fire from the entrance.

In this room, the grub spawns in a small alcove. You have to lead it left out of the alcove, then up, right past the alcove, down under a wall, then up to the fire. It’s the beginning part that is difficult; there’s a platform in the way of the most obvious route, so as Ferric you have to climb the left wall to get over the platform and go to the right.

The problem is, I can’t lead the grub to the right, because when I jump off the wall I either get hit by the grub and fall to the floor, or I have to double-jump, killing the grub with my own attack.

How do I safely escort the grub to the fire?
