It's also worth noting that the no deaths medal and the "beat the game" medal have had their point values increased.

Okay, in the game Pirateers, how do you get the golden treasures? They're the chests you find on the islands, correct? Reason I ask, is because I must've found more than 10 so far, but the stats screen only register 8. Am I doing something wrong here? Because I don't wanna fight the Kraken, because I think that'll reset the game and I'd have to start all over finding those damn chests again.

I think I know what the problem in your case is. It doesn't count the Golden Treasures that you get via those quests, only the ones that you find with the maps that destroyed ships drop. The symbol must be green to count, red one is quest related and doesn't count. And yes, you better get those treasures before the Kraken, because the game froze for me after I beat the boss. I also like that my current level icon is a pirate sword :3

Wow. These guys just can't get it right. They made it from getting all collectables being impossible, to making getting Pico impossible.

I thought it was just me, but this game seems to have problems. Has anybody finished it? If so, can you give me some help?

Yep, that was the problem, not the quest, but rather finding the treasure map. Thanks very much for the assist. :)

I've finished it twice since they fixed some of the issues. Pretty easy actually. Where you stuck at or whatnot?

Not sure if I really want to do the 9000 medal. It is asking for at least an hour of great performance. I might make an attempt at it, though I want to make sure that it isn't bastard hard first.

Oh nostalgia, secret medal xD

Fortunately, this game saves the solution you used! It's one of those things that kinda doesn't make sense in real life, but makes complete sense in a video game.

When I try to play, I get this message on screen... "The Flash Player has defaulted to software rendering. We regret that this game doesn't support that due to the poor performance."

Any ideas on what that means? Do I have to update my flash or something?

Wow, it's a hunk of meat that goes there? That wasn't even on my radar as a possibility, since all previous evidence had shown that movable blocks travel over your tools rather than being impeded by them. Weird.

Thanks.

All sent. The Bear of Love secret medal is a 100 pt medal. Easy points, if you know what to do.

Okay, on that DN8 game, it states in the author's comments...

*The game defaults to 30fps to enable it to run on the widest majority of machines. If you've got a good graphics card please go to Options > Graphics and knock it up to 60.

How does one do this, and does it mess up the computer? I can't play the game (the message I get is stated a few posts up from me). Bear in mind, I'm a moron when it comes to messing with the computer, so any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know the entirety of your problem. From what I can tell, you load up the page and the game, and it tells you the error message? What's going on? What are the steps you are doing that causes you to be unable to play the game?

A much better solution would be to PM the author of the game and see if there is any resolution that can be reached.

I don't think there is a problem anymore, as it seems the author just re-upped a new version of the game (v1.1). I was having problems with it not loading before, something the author mentioned in his comments. I guess I was one of the "lucky" ones who couldn't play the game for some reason because of the game's use of GPU Acceleration (whatever that is).

Seems to work fine now though.

I don't know, but I'm up to 8 rooms completed with a Platinum rating. Counting from the starting room, I've got:

1N (Up the Mountain we go), 3N (Bonus Room - Veiled Retreat), 2N1E (Whelps Have Wings), 1S (A Cave with some Chaos), 2S1W (The Sweet Lure of Meat), 3S (Uh Oh, No Loot Bags), 3S1E (A Little Help From My Friends), 2S2E (The Final Confrontation)

Anyone got any others they've done for Platinum?
