Thanks for all the work, I haven't really had time to check it out, but I definitely will. As for the statistics, they are very surprising to me. Sure it's been a while since I last did a complete backtrace (consequences will never be the same!), but 80 games with working medals that I haven't played sure is a lot. It seems even more unlikely I'm missing over 1200 working medals. There are still quite a few broken medals out there, but still, I seems like I've been lazy.

One point though, how does your program calculate those stats? If you look at your medal wall, that are a few games with some weird stats. For instance, Space Pizza Defense. It says: Medals Earned: 12/13 (40/340 points), yet there are only 12 medals and it doesn't count the secret medals.

Paradox is The-Great-One (don't know the number), Supa Sumba Pawdy is one of the Oney ones (start at descending order and find the first one).

Honestly, it takes awhile but I recommend just going through each one and clicking them individually. Takes like 20-30 minutes.

I dunno. They unlocked all for me after I went through individually. What was really exhausting was the "Visit the Codex" such n such times ones. I tell you, refreshing the page for 100 times took over an hour, and I was already half asleep before I started.

One more question...and that will be it. Is there an easy way to get Power Of Courage?

Just make sure you capitalize your name when it asks for it :P had to do that because of the way I get the ones from your page. And yeah, some of the numbers are skewed because of glitches (medals being worth -1 medal or a negative number of points, as in the case of Space Pizza Defense). I just take the values it says at the bottom of the pod for each game because that includes points from secret medals, which I wouldn't be able to get by going through the individual medals (a problem I've also encountered with the complete listing - so the stats can't be 100% accurate). I can't really account for glitches like that, so some things may be slightly inaccurate. I guess individual games with issues like that could be reported to staff for fixing? And if there's a larger bug (such as one I found yesterday with games that have no medals at all being shown in the gameswithmedals collection) I can code it to ignore those.

Wield the Triforce or Dragon Helm on someone or use Kitten Fort to get morale. Then let something do a wicked-powerful attack against someone with Morale status for it to survive with one HP. It is a little easier to earn this if you play this on the hardest difficulty since setting the game to Epic makes numerous powerful enemies (such as dragons) into one-hit kill threats assuming you do not buff defensive attributes at all.

A good way to do this is get Morale status (by summoning Kitten Fort or equipping the Triforce or Dragon Helm) on character(s) against the Glitch, and your characters will remain alive at 1 HP after getting hit by the Glitch.

The point is, try getting Morale on character(s) and let your foe inflict instant death in any way, shape, or form.

Anyways, did you grind for hours to get the Level 40 medal? Do bare in mind that if you over-level, getting this medal will be a bit more difficult since foes miss more often and deal very little damage if at all.

On another note, how did you get to Level 40? Did you just slay the dragons and monoliths (in the hallway before the final boss) repeatedly?

Yeah it takes hours but you can do it eventually.......I just slayed the dragons over and over again then left with the slime in the previous screen and came back again, etc.

Program update is up. Should give you a mostly complete listing now, excluding any glitches in the system. I'm also assuming that all the games with medals are in the collection :P. And forget what I said earlier about capitalizing Nijsse, I fixed that.

I could try to get the unknown secret medal values, but it'll require a bunch more requests and would take a while to code, especially if I wanted to make it as efficient as possible. I still have a lot of other stuff I want to do with this too, but I really need to stop procrastinating on my schoolwork :P.

As always, let me know any questions, suggestions, bug reports, etc. Thanks~

Sorry if this has been mentioned before and I'm just late to the game, but why did A Small Favor have its medals removed? I know that it's back on the front page to celebrate Zeebarf in the process of making a Kickstarter for the third game, but I hadn't noticed until now that the medals have been removed. Anyone know why? Was it on purpose or a glitch?

I did not realize that the medals had been removed, us that we are API mod we have not touched that game, it was probably the author that have removed them as it happened in this game:

Hey guys, I have a question regarding 2 games by gamezhero. The games are 4 Walls and Captain Zorro: Secret Lab. Both games get stuck at the "rendering" screen. I've seen a few people complain about it in reviews, and all I see is the developer saying "update your flashplayer". I obviously have the latest version on both my desktop and my laptop. Any help would be appreciated!

Just tried the games you mentioned. They get stuck in FireFox, but load fine in Chrome. I've been getting frozen rendering screens on a few other Gamezero games as well but so far it's always been solvable by just refreshing the page or going back later.

Thanks for the reply! It's not a browser problem on my part (I'm actually a bit offended you thought it was =P) and it's just those 2 games, and both of them freeze on the "rendering" screen.

Sorry about that, I guess I'll skip the plugin and cache follow-up inquiries. ;) Might be completely irrelevant, but the game stopped rendering in Chrome right after I clicked the logo (gamezhero page pop up), twice now. Nothing happens in FF though.
