April Community Update discussion thread

Recommended Posts

Unity is pretty much cross-platform. What about the unity web player? I thnk it's supported on linux.

 

EDIT: Tried installing it with wine on ubuntu 12.04. It seemed to be working until the patcher launched, then i got an error frow wine and everything froze. Guess I'll just install windows on virtualbox, then.

OK so after reading this thread for a while, I think its about time I give you guys a piece of my mind

 

First off, as many have said, closing the PvP option is by far the absolute WORST possible move you can make. It will negatively impact both the Pokemon company and this community. Sure, there are people that collect and trade cards. I collect and trade too. But I collect so I have more to trade, and I trade to get cards I need for the decks I come up with. Whats the point of a deck if I can't use it? Are we all supposed to make decks just because they look pretty while PvP is down?

 

Lets not forget that this harms the company too. Its obvious that the TCGO was made in order to boost sales of booster packs and decks. I can understand that, the goal of every company is to make profit. However, shutting down the PvP option means that the majority of the people here will stop buying packs, because the cards they get via codes online will be useless to them. I myself was eager to buy the Green Tornado deck and some boosters this week until I started reading this thread. Now, I'm very hesitant to buy any Pokemon cards at all. And honestly, that disappoints me. I was looking forward to the nostalgia of having a card collection once again.

 

And quite frankly, when I hear it said that v2 is coming late summer, what I read is "late summer 2012". What I understand it as is "some undeclared time in 2013" Look, I know its hard to meet your deadlines. People were ****** about SSB Brawl being late, and people are already whining about Kingdom Hearts 3 not being in production yet. Its understandable. This isnt the first game that has been behind its deadlines. But Closing PvP is NOT the right way to get v2 out faster. If you want time to work on v2, ignore messages about bugs and glitches in the current PvP. Shutting it down is the worse option here

 

Lastly, it is nice seeing an update, like many said, bad news or good. But can you do us a favor and update us more regularly? The last update before this April update was 4 months before it, back in December, and if I remember correctly that wa ssomething about Xmas stuff. We hate being left in the dark here. Like with gems, for example. I saw a post months ago saying that we'll be told what gems are for at a later time. One admin said this about gems: "Stay tuned to the News for when we release them and all the details about what they do and how to get them. Thanks!" Well, 3 months have passed since that post was made. I still have 0 gems and have no idea what their purpose is. Sometimes it makes me think even you guys have no idea what you're making gems for

 

Overall, for the good of everyone here, keep PvP up and running, and start updating us more. If v2 isnt on time, most of us will understand. We all know there's not enough time in a day

 

i couldnt agree with you more,especially the last part about keeping pvp going even if we have to wait longer in beta.thats the whole reason i buy packs and decks,to play pvp on here, THE ONLY REASON. please hurry,i need my pokemon pvp,as do we all.

Here's the thing guys, and I'm sure others have stated the obvious before, but lets just restate it again. Dark Explorers just came out right? So you want to play with those cards right?

 

If you answered no then what's the point of keeping PvP going, it's just going to falter until people lose intrest and then the community is dissapointed.

 

If you answered yes then it takes them time to program and playtest, and playtest, AND PLAYTEST. That's valuable time that they could just be putting into the new client.

 

So does it suck that your not going to get to play? Sure. Is Nintendo really losing a lot of dough here? Not really. They were going to sell those packs with or without PTCGO codes in them.

 

Take some friendly advice and start hoarding online codes now. I just picked up 72 packs for like 30% less then they normally retail for! ;)

I''m mostly ok with what's going on. I don't quite understand why the old version has to be taken off line. Is it possible to leave the old version online until the new one is ready to be rolled out? I'm imagining that you don't have to do anything to it, just let it run and be used (forgive my ignorance if that isn't the case and there is maintainence work, etc involved)

 

 

 

Could you clarify the starting time of the new version. It says 'late summer. I'm assuming that means a Northern Hemisphere summer (I'm Australian and the next "late summer" is in Feb of 2013!!!)

 

Thanks in advance to any and all who reply!

 

Cheers,

 

Mithos

If you're taking everything down to almost rebuild the game from scratch, why can't you rebuild it with html5? It would be cross-platform and you wouldn't have to install some poorly written program. More importantly, it wouldn't have to rely on one of the crashiest and most hated plugins in existence: Flash. If google can make a html5 music player, why can't you guys display some cards?

So, PVP is down and it looks like I can't access the cards that I spent my money buying? (Because I definitely do not buy the cards so I can have them IRL. only for the codes) Looks like I'll be taking a long break from this site. Playing against computers isn't fun. The only thing I enjoyed about this game was playing against people. Real people. I, also, enjoyed my card collection that I currently cannot find. I really wish PvP was still available. Having it completely closed down AND not being able to find all those cards I purchased is a bitter disappointment. Really hope the PvP comes back soon. Not sure I want to wait until "late Summer", though.

For those of you wondering how to open Booster Packs purchased at the Pokémon TCG Online Shop, and also how to view your online Pokémon card collection, you can access all of that at the old Pokémon TCG Online Lobby:

I beg to differ, the new client is clunky, useless and unappealing. I much prefer the old web based client, there are SO many things you can’t do on the new version ( like click on opponent cards to read moves etc.) and the sounds and animations are SO BAD! It feels like I’m playing a really outdated flash game from 2001, please scrap this hunk of junk right away and reinstate the old version, dont change something that isnt broken...that much!!

Right click on the cards to see a close up of the cards, including your opponents.

Take it easy. Currently, the Client Version is 0.0.62.13. First version of the new non-flash game. It's going to take a while before all the features of the old flash version are re-integrated back into this new version. Card Zoom, SFX, Music, Attack Animations, and slowing down the rate at which the NPC plays cards... all of this will come with time. Migrating over data from a Flash-based version into Unity takes a while.

Please be patient with the 0.0.62.13 version.

 

The hype surrounding the new version raised the expectations to unrealistic levels. This is far from being the finished product. Technically speaking, we are only TESTERS.

 

Play test the game, find bugs and glitches, submit reports.

that is what i want to know i just redeemed codes and got four packs and i cant even get to them to open them. The old lobby isnt there anymore it just tells you to download and play it through the client. I also liked it better when it was web based because i didnt have to download it. I had to delete things off my computer just to make room on it so i could keep playing...i hate that. though i will continue to play who knows it may grow on me

everyone who wants the computer animations to move slower is crazy. it's running pretty well for me but i had trouble muting sound effects (i could mute music fine). one time it let me play 2 supporters when my first 1 discarded my hand. also sometimes the prompt is all xxxs which has resulted me in sending out new pokemon accidentally

The animations could be slowed down a bit. Or better yet, a speed slider to control how fast animations are played. That would probably please everyone.

 

As far as music is concerned, I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't hear any music while playing the new Trainer Challenge. Just sound effects.
