I would, if you could edit posts on NG.

Yeah, but I mean in the way the screenshot archive is updated. Like, make a post on the top of every page or so with a little FAQ answering the most asked questions.

How does one get an execution? Seriously I know it's a different key, and I know where that key is, but I seriously don't know how to get one =3

Shoot an enemy once. When he's stunned, run to him and hit the F-key.

Easiest way as I have disambiguated from other members' statements and my own opinion:
Press middle mouse button, thwack them over the head, then immediately hit F.
Wait a white, bam. Execution.
Then scroll middle mouse button back to the weapon of your choice.

I'm kind of disappointed by thing thing arena and its medals. I mean, the game itself is allready pretty repetitive, and the medals are even more so. There are a couple fun interesting medals, but most of them are super easy and super repetitive and honestly kind of boring.

I think that Portal Defenders is the best example of good medals right now.

Oh, I see.

I was considering doing something like that "what games have medals," - trick is to time it right. We might have to settle for "posted once per page" or something, like the Stickam Room is in their thread.

It might be easier to get all that info (especially the FAQ) onto a blog and just post a link to the blog every page. I'll look into doing that sometime soon unless someone else wants to spearhead the effort (I've got a lot of school crap to take care of before the end of March).

No.The only ways is to kill 100 enemies with every weapon. It doesnt have to be all at once, but you do have to get each 100 kills with a weapon in a single game. After you get every weapon-based achievement, start a new game and you'll have it. This is the ONLY way to get it though. No cheats. No secrets. This is it.

You mean besides (What I've been told) getting the in-game weapon achievements?
Not that I know of, if there is another way I'd love to know.

I love glitches, well not really, at least not this one. You have to hit him at the exact moment he turns to the other side, which is pretty hard to do, considering his moves are random, I think.

At first I thought; "Neato, he won't throw barrels at me no more xD" , but that means he won't take damage from boxes either... In other words, I have to restart the game :o, I was so close to getting the 'survivalist' medal too. ;(

He can't hurt you if you touch him if he's like that.

Isn't there somewhere a page on newgrounds where you can check which games feature medals?
I know we can check it here on the forum, but wouldn't it be useful if there was a pinned topic with the games that have medals, so we don't have to scroll through various posts to see which games contains medals?

Just my 2 cents

I'm loving this feature NG has made ^^ great job to the masterminds behind this

There is no "official" page yet, since the achievements system is still brand new, but surely there will be one at one point.

However, Wylo made a news post with the current games with medals, which he will edit when they add new games, you may want to check his page often for changes if you don't want to bother with all these posts.

I found it harder to beat with Mike than anyone else. April's speed is her asset, so use it. You barely have to press the A button if you do it right. =)

Hey, does anyone know how to CLEAR the achievements from Thing-Thing?

I want to get the medals but everything is still unlocked on this comp from silly Zerok getting them all. I start off with the Artifact 19 and I don't get medals like for when I do an execution. We cleared the cache, the offline data and it still shows all the stuff unlocked in game (but I have no medals).

Also Portal Defenders' "CLEAR SAVED DATA" button disappeared too! What's up with that?

I'm pretty sure it's impossible to prevent cheating.

Let's say I wanted all the medals and I gave my password to Wylo to get them all for me.

This would prevent them from unlocking on my profile, but he would still have them.

Well, that is certainly valid. There'd definitely be more medals whores than there would be legitimate shared-computer cases. Still, the whole password-donation for medal's sake would run a huge risk of account theft.

I guess making it impossible to clear it from a particular computer would just nip all of the drama at the bud.

Still, I can't imagine it's IMPOSSIBLE, unless the system actually uses NG logins and IP addresses to track this shit. I figure there's some sort of file on this machine that I can delete. Not that I'd want to circumvent any safeguards they have in place - it would just be nice if she could get her medals easily because they are sooo shiny. :3

It's not impossible I don't think, somehow my friend has managed to get some Portal Defenders medals on my computer, yet I already had them. I don't know what she did but.. she did it.

But yeah, complete theories, would be nice to hear a way around this in the future (if there is a way).

Yeah, I guess I really underestimated her.

Well, I guess I'll regain all the 100 kill achievements in thing thing arena 3 over the weekend.

Same. Lauren has some PD medals. We had to use the Clear Saved Data button to get the unlocks straightened out, but evidently she got some medals even before that. Maybe this was before the API got updated to prevent a single machine from getting more than one set of medals.

Since this is still in beta (or so I assume), it doesn't pay to get too bent out of shape about it yet. We can test the IP theory by seeing if the computer next to mine has the in games unlocked (they're hooked up through a switch, which is tied to the campus network).

To double check, I'll find out our IPs.

Step 1 - our IPs are off by smidge, just the last number (68 v. 62).
Step 2 - on her laptop the in games are all locked.

So it's looking like it's computer based.

But yeah, complete theories, would be nice to hear a way around this in the future (if there is a way).

Yeah... I dunno if it's worth inviting all the system-abusers and password thieves when all we could do is find another computer that runs the game nicely. I don't really see any other way around it.
