I got "connection established" instead of that pop-up I just posted, and I got some medals from claustrophobia, so I think the medals work again.

Unless it's just me, I don't think its fixed. I played Claustrophobia and got the 2000 point medal to unlock on the screen, but not in my profile.

They worked for me, so it's not the game's fault. Maybe there are small connection problems again?

It does have an irritating bug. It skips every other level or so after the 10th level, so you can't get the 24 levels cleared medal because it skips it automatically. When I try to reach it from the level select screen, the whole game crashes.

I've no idea. I can't play it in IE due to the game crashing after 2 or 3 plays. Now, it just crashed while playing it in Firefox as well (where the medal popped up, but didn't register).

After hearing that everyone else (mostly) was able to receive the medals, I went back to the game and redid every sixth level and was finally able to gain medals. Perhaps there was a connection problem on my end, but I never got a "Connection Established" or "API Broken" message, so I assumed they weren't working.

Also, there was some MAJOR lag on the last few levels, but refreshing seemed to take care of it.

Finally, it seems as though the medal situation was straightened out... or at least for most of the games. I still have a computer crash problem on Claustrophobia for some reason, so that makes the higher end medals impossible to get. But the Anaksha medals seem to work fine now, as does Boom Balloon. The only one that doesn't seem to wanna work is Super Pig.

Speaking of Anaksha... does anybody know how to get the "Inflicting Pain" medal? That's the only one I've missed out on.

Guess that explains the recent medal problems. Wonder what the surprise is?

I think this one has a fake medal. Pretty irritating nowadays, because you don't know if it doesn't send or if the medals don't work.

Anyone know how to beat this level? I've come to the last point, where you can't continue any further, and if I try to continue to the right, I die.

Saw that and wondered why it has a medal.

Medal Name: M
Medal Description: y

Seems more like a spam medal to me.

Anyone else encountering the level 3 problem in Ball Run? Level starts and spawns you in the right corner and no matter what you do, you can't get away quick enough and have to start the game over since all three balls are aiming right at the corner. Anyone even beaten the level?

I haven't encountered that glitch. I did fall through the floor in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh (the last) level. I didn't die, so I finished the game that way, because the balls couldn't hit me.

This had working medals, but now they are gone. The authors says he's having trouble connecting it to the API system with the software he is using.

I think that was the point of the game. Not sure, but there is a medal pn there where you have to get 90,000 points in order to get it, and the only way I can think of (which took forever but worked) is to have it looped so you can kill all those guys and rrabbits over and over again untilo you reach the 90,000. I may be wrong, but I got all the medals but one (the one that says "You're a patient boy; Wait a sec"; not sure how to get that one) so somewhere along the way I was right.

I don't know. I completed that game (according to the medals) over a month ago, so maybe the API has broken since then? The 90,000 medal may have been a mistake on my part. I have bad vision. Or I'm thinking of another game.

It can't be in general because the second I loaded Burrito Bison and clicked "acheivments" in game from my last save, it instantanously loaded all the medals, meaning I got them all at the same time. So I'm assuming you mean Duck cyborg alone. Can it be fixed?

Perhaps the game API. I honestly cannot remember what you had to do to get all the medals in that game. I would suggest PMing the author and seeing if he can give you a list of how to get the medals, and also to see if his game is broken if you can't get anymore. If you do get a response, I would like to know how you get the "Your a patient boy" medal.

Try clearing the history and cache .. It helps alot ;O
but if it still doesn't work "after trying different browsers" try deleting the SOL file if it exists in your PC.. just search for "TripleTowerDefense.swf" and delete the folder <,link

PS: for the last medal, you don't need 4 towers lvl 5 in a single game to get it.. so you can just get lvl 5 tower, then delete it or start a new game to build a different tower, and still get the last medal :3
