  Playerdex Update - September 2018
Posted by: Bluerise - 09-08-2018, 08:52 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (5)

Hello all

Its been a while since an update has been introduced to the live Playerdex.  For the past few months - various staff members have been working on and off for an updated Playerdex experience whether that was by suggesting ideas, giving feedback or helping to identify bugs.

Here are just a few of the changes.

With our previous theme setup - we created a system by which more work was required from ourselves and it wasn't being taken advantage of.  We've replaced how themes are applied and have spent more time into getting them up to scratch.  There will likely be some outstanding design issues that we haven't picked up on - if there are - please feel free to highlight on the Bug Catcher.  We'll also consider whether to introduce any more themes based around some other colours over time.

Our new themes now make use of more of your screen estate!

Status Updates
Our staff were previously enforcing a status update restriction for those of you who wanted to advertise more than one of your Pokemon on Mart.  Because of this - we've added the ability for up to 3 Pokemon to be displayed from a single message.  These will then display inline.

Friends List
Following privacy concerns and an inconsistent experience between the game and Playerdex with how to add friends - we have now made it so adding a friend from Playerdex will require approval.  You can view and delete outstanding friend requests from the Friends page under My Account.

Please be aware that if you have previously became a friend via Playerdex - you may need to approve the friendship as it'll be marked as unapproved.

Move editor
The move editor for Pokemon has been given an upgrade!  You now have the ability to remove moves from a skillset as long as you remain with 1 move.  You can also change your skillset order.

And finally...
If you do experience any bugs - please report them over on the Bug Catcher and provide any information that may help us to resolve them.

On behalf of all the staff - thank you for continuing to support us!
Blue ~

  Server Status
Posted by: Jinji - 07-13-2018, 12:57 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

If you can't get into the game, first check that our server is online before reporting an issue. You can check the current status of the PWO Server at our Server Status page, located at https://www.pokemon-world-online.com/serverwatch.php - it is advised to leave five minutes between checks if you can't log in, as this is the amount of time it takes for a frozen (but not offline) server to be treated as such.

If the server is down, please check we have not announced a downtime first. All planned downtime will be announced on our Twitter account @PWO_ (https://twitter.com/PWO_).

If the server is down or frozen, but no announcement has been made on Twitter about a downtime, then the server has unexpectedly encountered an error and needs and ADMIN or DEV to restart it. The best thing to do in such cases is come to our Discord and check if the Staff are aware of the downtime. Please DO NOT make a Forum topic about the downtime, as such threads become quickly outdated and only serve to clog up our Forum; and we will lock them immediately. The server will be up and running once an ADMIN or DEV is able to restart the server.

While the server is down, you are free to join our Discord server to chat with other players and Staff. This we have made easily accessible to you from our Chat page: https://www.pokemon-world-online.com/chat.php

  [Closed] Extended Bird Party! (March 8 - March 15)
Posted by: Rigaudon - 03-08-2018, 05:27 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (15)

Join the Pewter City Museum for the event. Go upstairs and talk to the Bird Party Butler to join in. 
If you're stuck in Johto, talk to the Event Transporter in Cherrygrove City and she'll take you there.

Just be sure to follow the invitation code! Anyone that doesn't have 6 bird Pokemon in their team won't be allowed in. Duplicates are allowed, so if all you have are 6 Pidgey, that's fine.

Big thanks to the team for helping me with NPCs and testing. At first I was just planning on it being spawns only, but the rest of staff were able to get the event up to a higher quality. We decided to extend it and add an extra exotic species to the list. Enjoy!

  Client Update 1.97.2
Posted by: Donar - 11-13-2017, 09:14 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (22)

This update has been a long time in the making and while it does not immediately bring any changes visible to players, it gives many new tools for the content staff to work with.
We have departed from our old custom scripting language that went by the name of XanaScript and will from now on work with Lua. For now all NPCs have been converted one-to-one and aren't yet taking advantage of the new tools available, but this will change over time.
The same applies to the newly added support for berry trees and Pokemon forms: they are now possible but you might not immediately see them put ingame.
Finally a battle timer for PvP has been put in that is currently set to 60 seconds per round.

This update has been tested by staff and a handful of players, but as always there is no guarantee for there to be no bugs. If you encounter any problems, please report them through the Bug Catcher on the Playerdex.

You can find the download links to the latest installer here: https://forum.pokemon-world-online.com/s...?tid=25997

  Halloween Swarm Event (CLOSED)
Posted by: Jinji - 11-05-2017, 04:25 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (22)

As everyone knows, earlier this week, we celebrated the unquestionably best holiday of the year. The evening in which we remember those long departed, and dress up in frightening clothing and share sweet treats with one another. Yup, Halloween!

Unfortunately, Halloween this year fell on a rather awkward day - a Tuesday. This unfortunate but unavoidable consequence of our modern calendar meant that celebrating the day was awkward for many, due to it falling in the middle of the working week. But we didn't want to let you all down.

It is my pleasure to announce the opening of a belated Halloween spawn event. Until next Sunday, you can speak to a special Ghostly NPC located at Pewter City in Kanto, or Cherrygrove City in Johto, to be taken to a special, otherworldly location where you can catch some spooky Pokémon for yourself! There is no quest, only a special map for you to hunt in. Spirits, spiders, and even a sentient balloon await for you to catch...

Or did, once. Halloween is long past us, and the Lost Park is not a location designed to remain found. This event is now concluded; and is no longer accessible. Players who are still in the Lost Park following this event's closure may remain and wander around to your heart's content, but be aware what you see now is but an illusion; and there are no longer any Pokémon to find. You may talk to the Teleporter NPC to return to reality.

  Charity and 4th Gen Starters - Token Store
Posted by: Rigaudon - 09-23-2017, 12:19 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (6)

Thank you, PWO community! 

We've reached our goals for emergency funds. From now on, whenever there is an excess of donations, proceeds will be given to the Child's Play charity.
But that's not all.

Chimchar, Piplup and Turtwig will be made available on the token store indefinitely. Like every other Token Store Pokemon, availability will depend on rotation. 

The 4th Gen trio will also join the other starters as event Pokemon, so keep an eye out.

  [Weekend Event] Back to Farside Valley! [CLOSED]
Posted by: Rigaudon - 08-01-2017, 05:29 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (36)

THIS EVENT HAS CONCLUDED. A big thanks to our community for joining us! Feel free to leave feedback here or on the suggestion forum if you want.
You will still be able to complete the quest if you started it, assuming you have enough tickets. The Move Tutors will also stay for a couple more days.

It's about time for another event month. Based on past feedback, we've redone the scripts. Pippin has taken a sharp eye to the spawns, too.

The event will begin on August 11, 2017. As usual, head to Cherrygrove or the Pewter City museum to get started when the time comes. This is a weekend event, so this opportunity will only be available until August 13, barring downtime.

See you there.

Event opened on AUG 11, Midnight UTC.
Event will close around AUG 13, 11:50/Midnight UTC.

UTC is a timezone. Google "local time UTC" to see what time it is currently.

Photo Important notice to Photobucket users and signature artists!
Posted by: Jinji - 07-01-2017, 12:13 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

Attention all PWO Forum Users! If you are currently using a Photobucket account to host signatures and avatars for PWO or any other Forum, or to host signatures you've created for other people, it is with regret that I must inform you that you will need to upload those images to another host in order to continue to use them.

As part of a recently-announced change to Photobucket's Terms of Service, it is no longer permitted for users on certain account tiers - including free users - to embed images on sites outside of Photobucket. This feature now requires a paid Plus 500 plan, at a cost of $399.99 a year.

As a result of this change, if you are not a Plus 500 user, it is no longer possible to use Photobucket-hosted images on the PWO Forum - or, indeed, any other Forum or website. If you are currently using Photobucket for this purpose, you may find your signatures or avatars may stop loading in the future, or may be replaced with advertising. I have taken the opportunity to make this announcement, even though it does not directly relate to PWO and is out of our control, in order to inform such users of the inconvenience as early as possible so that you have time to find new image hosting services and can continue to use the signatures and avatars you enjoy seeing on your PWO Forum Posts.

Thanks for your time.

  Hello Discord, Goodbye IRC.
Posted by: Rigaudon - 05-29-2017, 02:39 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (4)

A small handful of you have raised the possibility of PWO starting our own Discord server, and recently our Staff team took this into consideration.

Our IRC has seen less and less use lately. That, combined with multiple other advantages when presented with the opportunity to swap, has lead us to move on to Discord. We have disabled voice chat, as that would be impossible to moderate.

We've set everything up accordingly, so feel free to join us:

Seems some people are confused about the rule page. Just click on a general chat to the left once you join.
