Happy April Fools!

That's right! Anything that happened yesterday was obviously April Fools... but today was an extension of that joke! I never really did "destroy" the forums, or "hack" into the server... that never really happened. I sure put up a convincing show, didn't I!

Special thanks goes to Atrius and Overlord Kain for working with me to make such a hilarious April Fools joke! Especially Atrius, for working with me to create such a convincing "late" April Fools joke!

You maybe were too surprised to notice, but when I supposedly "hacked into the forum" and "destroyed the website", I was really giving all "banned" members 5 coins for participating, as well as any member that changed their avatar to a Slowpoke-related thing 3 coins.

And if you still think that we were serious, just ask Atrius. We worked on this while we went along, and I used the account "goldensunmaster97" to communicate with him while my other account was "perma-banned". I was laughing so hard my cheeks started to hurt after a while!

I guess I really do live up to my name, hmm? Long live the balance between Luna and Sol!

Hmm.. I did question to myself how you be able to even do that if Atrius ALREADY demoted you... (I was surprised he didn't remove your admin powers for real.)

And I definitely did notice my increase in coins. (of 3, but I thought it was strange... )

I also had the strange suspicion that Kain using other accts. that someone else might be doing the same thing at the same time as well.. but I never gathered that it was goldensunmaster97.

[7:28:42 PM] Salanewt: An added bonus is that Isaac and co. were trying to stop Saturos and co. because their beliefs state that Mt. Muffin should remain a virgin.

[8:38:13 PM] Randel Peltier: Shes like this queen up on a pedastal that I have yet to court.
[8:38:29 PM] Kain: You've tried courting her.
[8:38:43 PM] leaf: and failed spectacularly
[8:38:44 PM] Randel Peltier: Ive tried...shes the best dating game ever.

Pretending to be a real-life slowpoke all day was actually quite difficult, mind you. I had to resist the urge to use punctuation.

By the way, what I actually did was I put the forum in Maintenance Mode, then I just copy pasted the css sheet to a txt file, then deleted it. That was me "destroying" the forums. haha.

Could have made a new user group with admin powers but it looks like a regular user.  I'm sad I was away for most of the show however.

Atrius and Charon:

Actually, he said that what he did was he changed the forum's code so that regardless of my class, I would have Administrative powers no matter what. He changed it back though, for your information. ;)

True, I really did demote her to being just a regular user, but I also added a hack to the forum's code that still let her use Admin powers.

Yup, and thanks to that, I was able to "pretend" to hack back into the server and change my profile back to administrator and wreak havoc!

Thanks a lot, Atrius! Best April Fools joke ever xD

Today at 12:17:52 AM
Fox: (e.g. The process of reomving, replacing, adding, and/or moving around current ability effects to other index numbers.... ETC.)
Today at 12:15:33 AM
Fox: Or an Ability Effect editor, even.... But I imagine most of those would involve have patches applied to help with compatibility, and what not.?
Today at 12:10:36 AM
Fox: Hm. Oh! Did Atrius's Editor contain code from the April Fools version? Might be cool to have that, I'm guessing? - And yes, tools... even specific feature tools... Like an Intellect Editor, maybe.... If it was practical. (Not saying doable, but practical.)
Yesterday at 11:58:08 PM
Lord Squirtle: And yeah, "far less user-friendly" as an argument relies on the current lack of tools that could make using that easier.
Yesterday at 11:57:26 PM
Lord Squirtle: Since the GS editor is actually slower than using a hex editor is when it comes to classes, especially if you are mostly copying or tweaking existing classes to make full lines for them.
Yesterday at 11:56:18 PM
Lord Squirtle: Well I mean, it's the kind of effect that could easily be applied to a number of abilities if one wants. Having to open up a hex editor to use it for each of those abilities would take some time, and wouldn't really be as worthwhile as it can be for classes.
Yesterday at 11:50:27 PM
Fox: Far less user-friendly? Hm? I would say it depends on the tools/and such... For example, still haven't gotten my Exporter project done....
Yesterday at 10:07:39 PM
Lord Squirtle: But what I was thinking of doing with the unused effects was figuring out which ones are still available and combining them; averaging out the differences between each one so they make up for the ones that are missing.
Yesterday at 10:05:36 PM
Lord Squirtle: I may consider moving the effects to the end of the effect list, since I moved the pointer table and added some empty space on the end. My main concern with that is that it would be far less user friendly.
Yesterday at 08:06:20 PM
Fox: Heh... Starting to make me want to add the Ability Editor to my own Editor now... So I can do that, and have chance values listed for each and every one. (So it is more specific than Atrius's editor.)
Yesterday at 08:03:06 PM
Fox: Well, 0-255.
Yesterday at 08:02:53 PM
Fox: The max probably being 255.
Yesterday at 08:00:09 PM
Fox: (@Editor modification: In which case, I would recommend adding support up to the maximum number for future purposes.... if at all reasonably possible.)
Yesterday at 07:53:50 PM
Fox: @Disabling them: It kinda would be a trade-off for those who want to use those effects that went unused.... ...  I have a suggestion, though... and it might be rather interesting. But have you thought about using one of the unused flags to like... switch out Effect lists? (So you can have your own if you don't want to modify the editor.) I imagine it is rather unnecessary, though. Since it is easy enough to extend the list with a quick editor modification.
Yesterday at 04:46:01 PM
Lord Squirtle: And elements too from the looks of things.
Yesterday at 04:44:05 PM
Lord Squirtle: Makes me wonder how much work it would take to add more djinn slots.
Yesterday at 04:30:45 PM
Lord Squirtle: Well, total - 1.
Yesterday at 04:30:13 PM
Lord Squirtle: Huh, neat. I think I found the part of the djinn battle menu code that decides how many djinn of each element exist.
Yesterday at 02:53:07 PM
Lord Squirtle: I should probably look into disabling the multiplier chance for those now that I think about it.
Yesterday at 02:52:17 PM
Lord Squirtle: I still am, but mainly because it doesn't look like there are any abilities that use those effects.
