Is anyone else having trouble getting the medals? I got 4 all the way until "Find One Virgo Symbol", and then after that the others didn't work. I received in-game 5 Virgo Symbols, 25 Virgo Symbols, and Little Vandal, but none of them showed up as gotten on the games page or in my profile so I stopped playing.

I haven't gotten any of them, but have unlocked at least 3 or 4 due to the in-game popup. I played on both Firefox and IE, and nada.

I always use IE for medal games because usually for some reason on my computer anyway, they seem to unlock better. I deleted my .sol file for this game at least 3 times trying to get 5 Virgo Symbols etc. to no avail. PMing the author after this.

Also, another New Medal Game:

Same situation as the other new one. I only got 2 of the medals (beat 5, and 10 rooms) but not the 15 or 20. Going to PM this guy and try deleting the .sol file again to see if that works.

For some reason, IE seems to run pretty wonky for some of the games, and Firefox usually works better. Though, I did unlock one of the medals for Ankasha, but not the others (even though I unlocked several others in IE). I'm just gonna skip it for the time being. Hopefully your PM will help figure the situation out.

As for Room Raider, that one was kinda weird too. I got the medal for beating 10 rooms in Firefox, but not the one for beating 5... until I played it in IE.

I was hoping all these medal unlocking problems were a thing of the past. But I'll have to be patient. :)

With all the problems with medals not sending, for multiple games, in the last couple of days, I think it's a safe bet that it's on the NG website's end, and not the games, themselves.

I've actually been able to get all of them on the first try of the game (with the exception of the last one; could never get enough speed and got tired of tryin). Try perhaps using another Internet whatever (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc) and see if that helps.

I have been having this same problem for the last few days. If we keep talking about it, maybe somebody will notice and fix the problem.

Another medal game. Don't get your hopes up though, they didn't work for me (in either Firefox or IE), so they may not work for you.

Just a warning for the game: if you want to get a medal, you have to pass the mark. So if you collect a double score medal while you have 1100 points so you have 2200 points, the medal for 2000 points will not send.

The medals in this one also seem to be hit and miss. I got a few of them that popped up in-game, but didn't register in profile. Plus, sometimes the game seems to freeze on me.

Frustrating to say the least, especially since I racked up a little over 5000 in one run.

I PMed the author's of Room Raiders and the Aksana games. The Room Raiders medals seem to be fixed (at least on I.E. anyway) and the Aksana game is working on his and states they should all be working really soon if not now.

The whole games seems a little buggy. When I press replay the music will start overlapping and the game froze after a while. I did get most of the medals I obtained, but not all of them.

I have to say that I don't really like how so many glitchy games get medals these days. It's been a while since I last played one where the medals actually worked properly.

Nope, don't bother going for any medals higher than the one where you have to score 1000 points. They don't work...

Great. Not only do the medals still not work for me, but all my save data's been erased and I have to start all over again.

I don't think it has anything to do with those medals, but more with the game in general. I can't get any medal after the 250 points one.

For me the medals in room raider don't work too. And I can't submit my score to the scoreboard.

I should have listened! Lol didn't see this post until after I got 8000 points and no medals after 1000. I also can't get the 300 medal for some reason either. Fun game tho.

Wow son of a

Apparently I haven't been able to get medals because I was logged in for too long? I relogged, then medals work fine once more.

Nope. They're just as wonky as usual. I logged in and out several times, and while this does seem to have an effect on the problem, it doesn't last forever, and medals send randomly.

Dammit! I lucked out totally and scored a little over 17,000 points on Claustrophobia (gotta love those "double your points" stars), and NONE of the medals I was missing sent, and this was after I logged out and logged back in... which seemed to work somewhat on Anaksha (a few medals didn't send), and Mind-Breaker (one 50 pointer didn't send).

I know it shouldn't bug me in the grand scheme of things, but man, that high of a score on Claustrophobia... that's a heartbreaker.

I played claustrophobia on IE. I got all the medals up to 1000 points to unlock EXCEPT for the 300 point one. It does work better on IE although apparently not perfectly

Can somebody give a hint as to the secret medal in the Wade Fulp Simulator game? I can't even begin to figure out what it is, and all I can do in the game is the 2 functions that allow you to get the medals. I'll admit, I'm not too up on the life of Wade (looking at TheRainbowZilla's comment "BEDNNNN STEEL CADNY!!!!111", I thought that might be a clue), so I'm wondering is the medal some sort of in joke or something?

Watch, it's probably something really easy and I'm putting too much thought into it. But a hint would be wonderful.
