I remembered what I was going to mention in yesterday's Weekly Update! So rather than editing that, I'm making it a separate article.
It concerns Raider: Episode 2, which is STILL not sponsored... hmm.

I am considering making the game less difficult, at least on Beginner mode, so then it's more accessible and less likely to get downrated due to difficulty.
If the beta testers from before have the time, could you play through the thing again and mention any specific room IDs that you think are too annoyingly hard, and suggestions for how they could be made easier?
As before, the game can be played [HERE], but only if you have beta tester status.

Also, last time I went with Kongregate's sponsorship deal, which was based around the game's performance... specifically, how many visitors it brought to Kongregate. But it did poorly because few people actually clicked the link.
Are there any suggestions that you can think of that would make people more likely to want to go to the sponsor's site for any reason, to improve my earnings if I went with such a deal again?

ALSO also, I added a thing to the main page labelled 'Recent Progress', which is something sort of like that 'Twitter' thing... I'll update it with quick sentences whenever I make progress on any games, so then you can see how long certain tasks take, how many tasks there are to actually DO, and so on and so forth.
Seems some people might find this interesting to know... and it might also motivate me more if I feel people would be watching and waiting for me to make any progress! No longer could I waste days doing nothing at all... o_O

i not on home computer when playing ur gamz pseudo so i wundr if u could allow players to switch computers but keep same game status, like me logging to any of ur games by this site's username and password that I created for myself. If, for example, while playing Mardek 2, I might be able to stop right before fighting the Lake Hag, and maybe when I log on on a computer somewhere else, I could fight the Lake Hag as soon as I booted up the game again.

That would be very difficult to do, and will require more database space.

Hmm... Maybe you should change the area where it says 'Hello Person' To automatically say the username of the person there if they are logged in, and only say 'hello person' if the person is not logged in? Like 'Hello Punkasrocer1'...

That does sound like an interesting idea, but its all up to Pseudo.
And my earlier coment about the battle menu in Mardek, I was just surpirsed a bit about it. I wasn't critcizing it.

I like how you're going to make Raider more accessible on the Beginner level. Maybe make the levels themselves easier, have a checkpoint in every room, have less spikes, etc., instead of just adjusting lives.

Also, though, even people who do usually like "Nintendo Hard" games have had (logical) criticism for the game -- and it's not stupid stuff like "there's no mute button!" Please read <a href=http://jayisgames.com/archives/2009/06/raider_episode_1.php>[this]</a>, especially the comments. I in particular agree with the "random drops" thing... Maybe make it so that certain enemies always drop a certain powerup? That would make speedruns more interesting, as it's a toss-up between avoiding the enemy that's going to give you a health powerup now for an enemy that'll give you one later, or something... Or not. You can always do whatever you want.

I prefer random item dropping but if it were up to me the only thing that would change in Raider Two compared to Raider One is a better boss and an even more difficult mode (and a few collision detension fix-ups). But maybe I'm just too clingy to the original. All though I don't think anyone would argue that the spikes need to be fixed so that touching the sides doesn't hurt you (I keep forgeting that and dieing, it's annoying).

Really like the development notes. If there's one group of people who deserve to twitter, it's developers, not the skanks/celebrities.

"Are there any suggestions that you can think of that would make people more likely to want to go to the sponsor's site for any reason, to improve my earnings if I went with such a deal again?"

I'm not sure if you would be able to do this, but one way that is known to work is the addition of exclusive content available only on the sponsor's site. Just make sure you don't overdo it to the point where it feels like a demo without that exclusive content.

Please don't repeatedly click links, unless you're actually interested. I'm fairly sure Pseudolonewolf can get in trouble for that sort of fraud.

I think they only count 1 per IP per day or something.
