The medals for the game CaGe - Casual Genocide by @SadCatStudio appear to not be working as of September 2017. When I tried to earn some it froze up a the point where I would have earned the first one. I tried it on multiple browsers with the same result. It might be just an odd issue for me, but the symptoms line up pretty well with medal games that have had trouble post https update in the past. If someone else could try to earn a medal on this game to see if they have the same issue that would be great.

Another game that seems to be having the same problem with the same symptoms and for the same reason is Build a Snowman by @Raiper34. If you click to a different tab and then click back you can continue to play, but you don't earn any of the medals you should and there are no medal unlocks since September. I tried the game on multiple browsers with no luck. The medal problems with this game have been mentioned in this thread before by multiple people. In any case, the medal issue still isn't resolved so it bears repeating.

Also, two games that I mentioned earlier in this thread

and

still have non-working medal issues.

I've tried in Chrome and Firefox with the same result.
Maybe the medals are just trolling me, who knows.

I tried running it on Edge and didn't get any medals. I'll try it later on Chrome and Firefox. @Neonspider you have unlocks for those medals from back in 2016. Can you see if they will still unlock for you?
Not gonna delete my medals and try that game again as I remember the game to be a bit difficult. It's better to have someone who hasn't yet earned it try for it.

The best solution that I've come up with for that problem is to have a second account that I use to test broken medals on, just as an fyi to you an anyone that might find themselves in a similar situation.

I can confirm that the medals are not working for both of these games. I tried different browsers, but still had issues.

To this day I still can't understand how I was able to beat the game TWICE without experiencing any freezing. Of course, a couple of weeks later it came back to freezing again and I never beat it again. So, so weird.


The medals in this game are not submitting for me. They were last earned on February 2, which is the only unlock since September 2017. There is also a game-breaking bug (making it impossible to complete if you die on particular levels) that was apparently introduced in 2016 - according to the comments - and the author is aware of it but hasn't fixed it.

Medals aren't submitting for me on this one either. I tried all three browsers (Edge, Firefox, and Chrome) that I usually test broken medals out on with no luck.

It has more medals now but it looks like no one has earned them.

This game consistently freezes for me when shooting certain shapes (for example, the last green block in the second wave of the first level). I'm using Firefox. Is anyone able to complete levels without a problem?

This game does not award medals for me and none have been earned since July 2017.

It freezes exactly in the moment when you should earn a medal. It can be a https problem. As for the 2nd game - there already were some problems with it in the past. @Exedor - maybe try both on http?

Another one that hasn't been earned in half a year. I got a sponsored animation and the first medal didn't register.

Based on the time that medals stopped unlocking on the game it looks like it could be an https problem.

That should fix the problem, so the medals do not have to be removed.

CjElliott has several medal games with problems. The following games may need to be switched to http.
Idle Programmer - I earned these medals before https, but none have been earned since 9/25/17.
CAZE - medals are not working for me, none earned since 9/17/17.
Happy Jump - "Dress to Impress" works, but the score-based medals do not; unearned since 9/16/17. (After I managed to get over 100 >_>)
His more recent games seem to be working, though Midnight crashed Google Chrome and I can't try Firefox (my usual browser) right now.

Do medals unlock for anyone in this game?
Cause I've tried several times in both Chrome and Firefox and I get achievements in-game but the medals never unlock...
I've checked out the recent unlocks and they don't seem to be broken.

I just checked this game with the test account and the first medal unlocked for me on Firefox.

Not the first time a game only and exclusively trolls me, don't worry.
Guess I'm used to it lol.


I Puzzle Good and Triangle Sweeper (by the same author) are two more that seem to have HTTPS issues. I PMed the author because the first game works fine, just doesn't submit the medal or scores (thankfully it keeps your last save at the final level). The second one goes blank after finishing a level (i.e. when a medal should submit).

Also, the last two secret medals in Vatnou are broken. I finally managed to get a score of over 10,000 just to make sure. No one has earned them.

If it is the same author for both games than it is probably the same issue. It will be nice to see them both working.

The medals should be fixed, but you will have to earn them again. That has happened to me several times in the past.

Not sure what you mean. Do you know what the requirements are for the last two medals?

Looks like Dark Bullet and Newgrounds Sim 2017 have been switched to http and the medals are now working (though I'm not sure how to get the last two in the latter).

I have earned all the requirements for a broken medal, and when it was fixed, I did not receive it.

No, I do not know the requirements. Do you?

The first 2 medals seem to be broken, cause based on their description one can guess that they should unlock after finishing one animation and one "music" that give bonus money. The secret medal does work though.

The first one worked for me yesterday. Second one doesn't seem to work unless the requirements are weird. Can't figure out what to do for the secret medal lol

The name of the medal is "Fulp'd", that should be enough hint...
