I used to have that problem, there's no way to identify the gun by just looking at it, since most of them look alike, luckily, the name of the weapon appears besides its ammo's capacity on the upper left corner of the game screen , so if you grab a weapon you've already found a badge for, just throw it away until you find the one you need. Hope that helps.

On another note; After the fourth time getting the brain badge from "Portal Defenders" it finally uploaded correctly onto my profile... Now I only need 3 badges to complete my collection from Alkie Kong (which are ultra hard), but I'm very close to getting the "easy" one... Stupid level 14 always gets me.

Feel free to try and link to said blog at the top of each page, with some sort of bolded text saying:

UPDATES, AND FAQ - Read this before asking for help.

See if it works.

That'd be good, except with the pace that this thread is going I can't get the timing right. But someone else could do it.

I'm playing Thing Thing Arena 3 and trying to get the Lead Pipe ninja medal. If I accidentally pick up a gun and shoot a guy once, but I do the final blow with the Lead Pipe, will it still count as a kill?

I believe so, but I'm not certain...
Just keep going at it and utilize executions whenever you need health.

There's no way to do that, not yet. The medal system is not complete yet, it's just on the "beta phase". Woah that sounds cool.

Cool, apparently it was submitted with the medals instead of them being implemented later.

100% agree. Severely unpolished. Too much focus on the out-of-game artwork. Tons of glitches. This game should not be a game to showcase the medal system.

I second that. The game is pretty bad and there are so many glitches. I have no real desire to play it.

At all...
Its just not a good game...

this game is ridiculously unplayable, especially for medals;

anyhow, I struggled through level one, finally done it, and level two is just pathetic, it's just a normal boss, on her own, no extra mobs, however, she copies your attacks, if you shoot, she shoots, and you'll end up in a crossfire, if you meele each other, she'll eventually end up blocking, pick a variety of attacks instead of just attacking naturally with 'D'

next little problem is her aerial strikes, if you jump and 'D' she blocks a fair few times, however, she might decide to fly up in the air, and she'll swoop into you, therefore taking damage, I've not found a way past this yet, besides trying to double jump before-hand. the next aeirel is fairly easy to dodge, she'll jump into the air (while your on the floor) and slam her two-handed down, you can easily walk out of the way before she manages to hit the floor.

she's extremely frustrating, so I assume I'll be here for a good hour or two until I kick her ass.

The difficulty level doesn't really come into the equation, because the entertainment level doesn't even give me the incentive to get past the tutorial.

As most everyone has said Fear Unlimited Issue2 should not have medals. I'm sure the author did his best on the game but sadly it didn't come out all that well. Mainly because the game is to hard. I'm talking hard in the not fun way. I mean really, enemy's are way to over powered and can kill you way to easily. This game is just to hard and enjoyably to have medals. It's really that difficult of a game, even on the easiest skill set.

We all should get Psycho Goldfish or whoever to get rid of medals on this game.

I agree with most people who posted here and like half of the reviews for that game. The game is just completely unplayable. It´s filled with glitches, like I fall through the floor as soon as the game starts and have to get hit before I can fight. When I build up combo´s, enemies always end up behind me somehow and just stab me once and that ends the combo. And those explosive enemies seem to get stuck to you or something and there seems to be no way to avoid being blown up by them as running away is just not possible. I don´t see why they would give medals to such a game, honestly.

If anyone has any tips on how to prevent the things I mentioned above, I would gladly hear them.

Aren't you overexagerrating a bit here? Yeah sure the medals are really hard to get but they're not impossible and they work. Maybe if they didn't work then they could be removed, I'm sure the author will listen to the fans and he might make it a bit easier and fix glitches.

Every working game should have medals, and people are just getting angry because they can't get ones medals, don't worry.. there'll be more for you!

Don't like it. Controls are pretty bad and animations are also very stiffy. Concept of the game is great, though.
Don't think I will get that many medals from this game.

I disagree with getting rid of the medals for Fear Unlimited. There should be no scoring prerequisite for a game to have them. If there were a pong clone with medals, I wouldn't mind.

AS LONG AS medals across all flashes are fairly equal, (i.e they are not purposefully easy just to give away free points) then I am happy.

It doesn't matter if this games medals are near unreachable, soon there will be hundreds of these to complain about.

Also the game is an unpolished pile of trash.

I have no problem giving new submissions the ability to have medals but the games should at least be polished. As Auz mentioned, there are so many bugs such as falling through the floor, getting stuck off screen, etc. that make this game unplayable.

May I even propose a new voting system?

The standard underjudgment system remains and then after a submission passes, users get to vote if the submission is medal worthy. I doubt it would ever happen but this game is a clear example: Decent game that should definitively be on NG, but does not deserve medals.

Yeah the game is not very good, looks like it was released too soon and the author didn't want to fix the glitches. However I'm sure this will happen many times in the future when the medal system is free for all.

If you want to take advantage on a glitch, just jump or take your enemy to the air (up+D) and then keep pressing D, your character will start "flying" while hitting the enemy. Works with groups too.
