I really appreciate the games you're reporting guys :3

Well, most of these games (if not all) are already in this list.
As Nijsse said, we'll be removing 0-point medals from these games.
But as for broken medals with a value (obtained by users), they will be removed when "the bug" is fixed.

The same thing goes for the games in this list. They were obtained by many users but they can't be obtained anymore. So, these medals will be removed as well. :|
I will post them again when we remove them so that you guys know why you lost some points.

I played this game a while ago (sometime in March or April) and should have earned all the medals, but none unlocked. I just tried again and the same thing happened. Also, nobody has earned any of the medals in the game since February 28th (less than a week after the release date). It's also not in either of the lists Shantom posted.

Pretty sure these medals broke down at some point. I played this game during my challenge and I should have earned a few medals, but they didn't unlock. Like you said, nobody has earned any of these medals in 7 months, and there's also a fairly recent review by blastvortex complaining about non-working medals. Unfortunately, there isn't much that can be done about it right now, besides contacting the author and hope for the best.

Yeah, the medals in Chibi Knight aren't very functional! I've done everything in the game and have not received any medals!

I also created a topic about this, click here and check out!

Hi! No need to make a thread about it and also post it here. The 'Video Games' section is for discussing video games, posts about broken medals go... well, here! You are correct about the Chibi Knight medals not unlocking. BoMToons is trying his very best to get Greenlight on Steam for the sequel 'Super Chibi Knight', so he updated the original game with some links. When he did this (around a month ago) the medals stopped unlocking.

I asked BoMToons to look into it. He's an active member and since the game still gets tons of views, he will likely try to fix the issue soon. Thanks for letting us know about the issue. =)

OK, thank you! I'm deleting the thread, too!

Turns out there's a bug in the new site: if you use the button in the top-right to collapse a medal game, and then you use the button again to re-expand it, any medals you earn after doing that won't be sent to the server. I just spent 10 hours earning end-game medals in Cursed Treasure 2, but because I collapsed the game, none of them registered on NG. Now, if I want them to show up, I have to start a new game and do it all over again.

My point is a) be mindful of whether you've done this before reporting a medal as broken, and b) be careful that you don't do this.


Deploy the... it's a yellow button... it's usually flashing... it makes the engines go... whoosh!

Please help fund my horror novel. I'll love you forever.

And it seems like the medals on this game aren't working as well...

At least the "Getting Started" medal, because I've already beaten the first 9 levels and I haven't received the medal.

Been a while since someone posted here...

What about http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/632276 ?

The author says, he never could get those medals to work. Will it be taken off the list?

Response to Official Broken Medals Thread 2014-01-21 23:32:20


Found some other games:

- Auto Smash 3D! :

I tried the medal "Stomper" many times in different browsers and also always deleted the save file, but I cannot unlock it. The last time someone got it was 15 days ago, so no idea what happend there. I didn't try the other medals because they are long grinding stuff.

- Button Game 2:

Bad Thief and Thief are broken since more than 1 year. I have tried them both again yesterday and they still don't work.

- Planet Defender:

I tried this also yesterday and it is still broken. Shantom told me short after he got the medal that it doesn't work and will be removed.

Lets give the author some time to fix it. He managed to fix one of them, so hopefully he can fix the other one as well. If he can't, the medal will be removed.

Unfortunately I can't test the game myself since it lags too much. I'll ask if another API mod can test it, so we can contact the author and/or take care of the medal(s).

Ah, I've never been able to earn these medals as well. There are a few other Button Game medals that seem glitchy, but for obvious reasons I never feel like testing them properly. =P Will look into it and contact BanglaBoy.

This medal should've been removed a long ago. It's gone now.

Every other medal in the game get unlocked pretty much on a daily basis, so you're probably right. Will look into it.

Hey :3

I had some troubles getting this one too. Then I PMed someone who just got it and he said:
Try the following: fill up cargo AND inventory.
Then start the day.
Then choose to leave the station.
I believe you only get the medal once you meet the requirements AND finish the game. Hope that I could help you. :)

Give it a try :o

Hey, thank you.
When you launch with a full cargo it really unlocks the medal. The description for the medal is just completely wrong.

Legendary Terror medal. I PM'd Evil-Dog about it and he PM'd me back just over 3 months ago that he would look into it; the medal still doesn't work. The only reason people have unlocked it since whenever the update came out that broke the achievement in-game is because Jeanioz released his save file that already has the achievement unlocked in-game.

Response to Official Broken Medals Thread 2014-02-18 01:10:23


Something's up with the first two medals (Mook Munchies and Simply Delicious!). I have the "beat level 1" medal so I can't say anything about that, but I've definitely met the requirement multiple times (new save files) for the "feed 50 mooks" medal. Every other medal has been unlocked more than these two (not counting beating all levels) despite these two being the first requirements that are met in a playthrough of the game. There's also some pretty large gaps between the dates these medals are earned, far larger than any other medal (once again, not counting the "beat all levels" medal). Also, a fair bit of the reviews are complaining about these medals, and when the game was posted in the "newgrounds medals - games and tips" thread people were complaining about not unlocking these two medals.

The game no longer has medals. No need to keep the 'play the game' medal.

I can confirm that it takes some time to get them. Took me 4 month until they were awarded.

The medals "Karma Dude" and "The Entrance". Neither of these medals have been unlocked since February 5, 2013 - coincidentally the day that an update for the game came out. According to the author, waiting 5 seconds after you die should unlock the "Karma Dude" medal, but that doesn't work. "The Entrance" medal is pretty self-explanatory and was likely rewarded for just starting up the game - but that doesn't grant the medal.

Space Defaulter Gold: This one didn't unlock for me despite completing the level multiple times with all 3 rings collected. I've tried Mozilla and Chrome, but without success.

It didn't unlock for me either. I was one of the first to play the game, and based on the users that unlocked the medal afterwards, I assumed the medal has been fixed. Every other 'difficult' medal in the game has been unlocked 12-13 times. This medal only 7 times. I'm not quite sure what to do about this, except some testing.

Can anyone who earned this medal post what browser they used? I've only played the game using Firefox.

I just notice that I have it on video :

When there is a short reload at the end, it is because the original stream hits the 2:00:00 hour mark.

I've done it exactly like that at least 5 times using Firefox and Chrome. Medal doesn't unlock for me.
All the other medals unlocked without any problem.

Hmm, strange. The day it came out the medals didn't unlock for me either, but I managed to unlock the medal first try a moment ago.
