The game is stuck on the 1st flash to flag,there is no way to proceed and unlock medals.

Have you tried pressing the down arrow key after the flash has finished? :]
The game works just fine.

As Nijsse suggested during a discussion in a medal points list thread, I will continue to post here the info about games with broken medals belonging to one of 5 categories proposed by me:
1) A connection between the game and the Newgrounds medals' system is broken;
2) The game itself is broken, currently unplayable, although the medals still exist;
3) The games that were removed by the Moderation Team but the medals still exist on members' medal walls and
4) games that have been removed by the author;
5) The author is unwilling to fix the medals.

Lately I found some more games belonging to 3) and 4), here they are:

Angry Animals 2 http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/605214
CXT Mazes http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/593358
DK Arcade Returns 2 http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/582339

I also found one game belonging to 2), it is Diet http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/629057
It is currently unplayable, when you click "play", the only thing you get is a black screen, even external link seems now broken, although it is still downloadable from Google Play. Nevertheless, medals are not obtainable.


Equal medal chances for everyone!

I find I can play it, but the medals don't send anyways. Will try again later.

Two more games, this time with broken medals:

Feed the Mooks http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/570899
Fury of Flawering http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/614041

In both of them last medals were unlocked 1-2 years ago and when I click on most of them I can see this information:
"An internal server error has occurred, and the staff has been alerted. The site could be under heavy load at the moment, so you may want to try again in a few minutes." Why is it happening like this?

Secret medals seem to be bugged.

Yeah, I couldn't get them to work as well.

Some users unlocked them on 12/31/69?

It looks like this is the case for all medal games. I'll notify PsychoGoldJosh.

Response to Official Broken Medals Thread 2015-03-26 03:38:35


Haven't seen this one mentioned yet. Is this medal broken, or does everyone just suck?

After beating the super duper laggy stage with a shytton of small meteors, the game just straight-up freezes or something. Given how badly the game was made, I can't tell if it's a legitimate end screen or not.

What's currently going on with this 69 issue? When it comes to older games it makes hard to determine whether the medals are broken.

Hence why I asked PG to look into it. He seems to have fixed the issue. =)

Turns out that was the end. It just goes back to the "play game" screen after a while, and it loads up an NG high score table with the error message.

Replaying the game and beating it causes an in-game NG ad loader to appear, which takes you to the "play game" screen.

And no medal. Hooray?

I blame Nintendo. Damn you Nintendo and your lawyerism! (Actually this game is pretty much a copy of the game it is made after.)

Why is this guy toying with our feelings -_-; I forget his NG alias, but I have a bad feeling about what's going on here...

Edit: found the author. Won't post his name publicly though.

So about this one..

This game could use some more testing by you guys. I tested on an alt and the medals seem to be working fine, but I know at least the first two medals are glitchy (I still haven't been able to unlock the "Mook Muchies" medal on this account), so it'd be useful if more of you could test to see if the later medals are also just as glitchy.

Huh, it worked. I could've swore I tried that when you first posted that and it didn't work. Thanks.. I imagine this is also where the trouble with the "beat the first level" medal comes in as well?

I checked Fooliolo's method and it worked on both 50 Mooks and the first level medals. I wonder if the browser can make a difference? Earlier I played on Frefox, this time on Chrome and additionally on its incognito mode. I have to do it like this because I'm experiencing weird behavior of my computer: when I click on a medal below the game on the normal mode of Firefox the computer sometimes freezes.

Got three new issues:

2 examples of medals from removed games:

Greatest Mario Battle http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/622687
Mario http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/598087

And a game which is currently unavailable, but without a status of being removed by the author:
I hate Nyan Cat http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/590090

While the firs one is big, the second and third contain some 20 points each.

Could you check this game?

Motorjust

Tried on Firefox and Chrome, without ad-block and the game is not loading. On Firefox after preloader I get only a blue screen (of death? ;-) ) and on Chrome I even get no preloader. Last medal unlock occured 2 weeks ago, the second - 1 month ago.

I just played some levels without any problem. It takes some time to load, but works fine here (Mozilla FF)

I have finished the game multiple times now and didn't get the medals for it. The medal dialogue triggers in the game though. I have tried it with Firefox and Chrome. There is also the problem that Firefox sometimes freezes directly before the medal is shown in the game. Since I can see that there are constantly people unlocking every of the medal I wonder what I can do to finally be awarded with them.

Check this one, it is rather impossible that nobody unlocked a single medal from this game for almost two years, therefore they must be broken:

I got a question, what does it mean when on somebody's medal wall I see a note like this: Medals Earned: 8/8 (370/0 points)? Do they still count? I assume that the game has been stripped from medals. The game is

The author seems to have made the medals from that game unavailable. The medals are still in the system and if those medals have previously been achieved, the points will still add up to your total. If later they go back in business, people who have previously gotten the medal will still have it.

Many people were complaining in their reviews about the medals not working for this game, I also couldn't unlock any of them:
