there's a few people who have that medal, but they haven't given any hints on how it's possible. Certainly seems like you have to manipulate the way that you play the game in order to get the medal.

Well, that's suck, my best score so far in pancake is only 68, and cheating is against my rules

A new game, but with all weapons and all upgrades. Or atleast a few weapons fully upgraded, and all upgrades. Start over on the game you already completed, you'll still have all the stuff. Do not let any bunnies hit the motel!

Just to add on to dx's explanation here, which is good. If you let the bunnies hit your motel you lose your multiplier. If you look in the upper right corner there is a 1x 2x 3x 4x etc. As long as you keep killing bunnies and your motel doesn't get hit, the multiplier for the score goes up to 4x. This is why it is easier to have a higher score with all weapons upgraded, because you demolish the bunnies easier and they don't come close to hitting your building. thus keeping the 4x multiplier for score as long as possible.

It's such a terrible game haha Just beating it for the first time was enough to make me never play it again. At least with other difficult medals, the games are actually fun. Like that pedestrian medal. Even though it is frustrating, it's still a good game. I've played through Alkie Kong at least 500 times and still find it fun haha. Finally got the survivalist medal on it haha

I want that medal too, but l usually get stuck in a level (and the funny thing is that that level is usually different on each playthrough..well, the level beofre the boss is exruciating...)

I've played through Alkie Kong at least 500 times and still find it fun haha. Finally got the survivalist medal on it haha

Ah, l wish l could actually finish that damn game..PG's guide doesen't help me at all...l miss at least 250 medal points from that game (not inculding Drunken Deity, of course).
Well, l guess l should train a lot, but thta game sucks so much l just can't...

Also, WOOOO EBF2 will have checkpoints :D

just to let you know... when i found out about the sperm rider illiterate and literate medals... i tried my work computer... but nope... i didnt get it... i made sure i did it under 5 seconds for the first time...

that theary doesnt work in pratice to my knowledge... the only way to get both is to do it first time or cheat somehow... and untill they either redo the medals so you can get both... (seen as people have both) or just remove the two medals... this is going to be an on going thorn in the backside of the medal beta... along with the seemingly impossible pancake challange which nearly all the users here cant get much over 80... untill i see a video of someone doing it... i cant see how it can be done... i spent a long time trying different things and alsorts...

apart from that i think every other medal game is fine :3... some more of a struggle then others but still.. only 2 other 100 point medals to get... *darn you drunken deity!*

Lol

Lol

Well, from the looks of things l won't be able to get You Must Be Cheating (l lost only 15 lives when l arrived at the final boss, and usually l can kill him withou losing more than 2 lives, but that time he fucking owned me for some reason..).
And l tried AK2 again, and this time with a YouTube video guide, but l really can't pull it off.
The problem with me and games that have levels like Red Moon, Stickya Adventurya and Alkie Kong 2 is that in theory l've beaten all the levels easily, but in separate playthroughs!
Maybe in one l'll do great in Lv10 but l'll suck in LV16, and when l try again it will be the opposite...it's so frustrating when you lose to a level that you beat easily last time you played...
I really don't know which game to play now...l cannot even get that 100 achievement medal in Medieval Rampage because l can't get a score of 5000 in survival...and Sonny 2 is just getting more tiring every time l lose from these assholes..
Sigh.

Well...l just did it, (you must be cheating) but boy, l was about to vomit when l finished....it was so close!
And the worst thing is that now my friends will ask me to do it for them :(

By the way, a friend of mine said that NegativeONE told him that NG Rumble is going to have medals!
That's awesome news because l played that game for a long time...

Indeed.. l just hope that there will be no medals like -beat the game on impossible mode with all characters without getting hit or using special attacks inless than a minute on your first try- or something..

My medal suggestions:

"Credits guy" 5 points-click the "credits" button.
"Rumble Maniac" 100 points.Beat the game with all the characters
"Pikonjo" 25 points.Unlock Pikonjo (doh!)
"Convict" 25 points.Unlock Convict
"Unlock maniac" 50 points "unlock everything that can be unlocked.
"Team Player" 10 points.Play in a game with a friend.
"Best Playa Evah" 50 points.Beat the game on OMFG mode with any character.
"Good Playa" 25 points.Beat the game on Normal mode with any character.
"Sissy" 5 points.Beat the game on Sissy mode with any character.
"Perv" (hidden medal). 25 points.Click Nene's boobs.
"Golden Player" 50 points.Get 1000 Grounds Gold points.

What do you think?

Personally the YouMustBeCheating medal seemed impossible the first time I played that game, but I got it on my fourth run. Read the walkthrough, watch the video, read the comments. In my opinion Alkie Kong 2 requires far more practise to perfect. On my third run I actually did the bouncing balls room without dying once (not the fourth time though unfortunately) and I only lost about 6 lives in the room with smoke. My technique is to hold the jump button and whenever you touch the ground you jump really high and fall down to the ground again. It makes navigating the balls sooo much easier.

Well, l lost only 2 lives in the smoke room and 1 life while fighting the final boss....and yeah, jumping makes it SO much easier.
The levels where there are a lot of nijas are usually the hardest ones..
Hm, now that l have this medal

i think it should be left to the maker of the game to choose what medals to have... most likely a few of them will be put onto it... like unlocking people and rooms... love that game... completed it twice... but not for a while :3

the rooms i hated was...
trampoline room... farting on chainsawing guys without dying is hard...
smoke room normly killed me once...
the cookies rolling down normaly killed me once if i was unlucky... its very hard to judge the distance...

also i found out in the rock off with slash... if you press your arrow keys when he is ment to be doing his bit... you still get points :3

Does anyone know if the medal system is down right now, cause I just earned the Shift Medals and I didn't receive any. I checked my connection and it was fully intact, and I redid the medals and I didn't get it. So what is going on?

God, i'm so pissed off right now. I just finished EBF on hard mode and it said i got the medal, but now it won't show up on my profile. That's about 1,5 hour wasted on nothing.

I refuse to get it because it neither contributes nor enhances the gameplay in any way.
Whereas the ''hard'' medals in Portal Defenders were actually quite enjoyable to get, namely beating with all characters I really enjoyed.

I just beat Epic Battle Fantasy and the medals worked fine for me.

One thing I did notice is that medals DO NOT WORK if you have the "Do NOT automatically play content" box checked on your Flash Portal Preferences. I couldn't get medals when I had that on, but when I unchecked that box the medals worked just fine.

Odd, I've had that enabled ever since the option presented itself and I've gotten medals for everything I've played thus far.
Once you play the flash, it's allowed to connect. Makes no sense why that option would permanently disable communications between the two.

That's kind of what I did. I was on epic, right before the Goku fight, in great shape.

And BAM my firefox decides to crash.

As far as NG Rumble medals, that sounds like a great idea!

Come to think of it, my specific incident of medals not working was on Sonny 2. I unlocked the first medal but it didn't register on my account. It had that "not logged in" box on the menu screen, and when I unchecked the "auto-play off" box, it was gone. I've just kept auto-play on because everything's been working fine with it.

It was probably more Sonny 2 being buggy than it was the system, and even if it was a problem in the system, it's probably been fixed by now. Disregard what I said.

NG Rumble needs to get medals very soon. I have migrated over to Kongregate to try to satisfy my achievement whoring needs. Although maybe I should concentrate more on getting achievements on my Xbox.

Make sure that at the start of every level the difficulty is on hard. I found that the difficulty likes to change on its own.
