Sorry for the intermittent downtime. Seems like the server machine might be in need of a hardware upgrade sometime soon. If it turns out to be necessary, I might have to run a donation drive for it, so be on a the look out for that.

Downtime due to server malfunction again. That necessary hardware upgrade creeps ever closer...

So I have some good news and bad news.

The good news is that I got the new machine up and running and it runs like a dream. Hooray!

The bad news is that it's a different architecture hardware wise so I have to recompile shoddy and this means sifting through 340,000 different files and finding it's dependencies (I wish I was joking)

I'll work on this as much as I can but I am only one person. One person with many responsibilities. So the server will be down for quite some time. I'll post when it's back up. If you need a place to chat, #TPDP on Rizon is still active enough for it.

OKAY AFTER ABOUT TWELVE STRAIGHT HOURS OF CURSING AT THE C++ LIBRARY KNOWN AS BOOST, THE SERVER IS BACK UP AND RUNNING AND SHOULD BE MUCH FASTER THAN BEFORE

REJOICE!

EXS' area is getting hit pretty hard. Server may stay down for the duration of said storms depending on how frequent the power outages are.

Would we expect to see Kosuzu, Sumireko, and all of the LoLK cast in future updates?

I suspect that if that were to happen, it won't be for a while. Not to mention the fact that there aren't even any decent sprites for Sumireko and the LoLK cast (We'd need the Chibi and Evolved (Front and Back), as well as menu sprites). Reimufate's sprites are an abomination, in my opinion, so they don't count. Let's not forget to mention that not even the Japanese Touhoumon wiki has any updates or unofficial patches that include them. And this is all before considering their typing, balancing, and figuring out what role they would play in the meta that the other 200+ puppets don't already play.

While I'd like to consider having Sumireko and the LoLK cast, I feel there's also been a lack of any new development regarding Touhoumon 1.8 as a whole. Most people that come now focus on TPDP (or are at least waiting patiently for a translation). I'm almost sure there'll never be a Shoddy TPDP server, since it'd take a very ambitious mind to program one (anyone who's up for the challenge, you have my respect).

As for Kosuzu...I'm really not sure why she's not on the server. She does have a battle and menu sprite, but I guess she would be considered Reisen II-tier if she was added.

UPDATE: Apparently Tohofes and PixEvildrake in fact DO have decent Chibi and Evolved LoLK sprites, albeit only front sprites. Somebody would still need to do back sprites and menu sprites. We'd also need permission (In Tohofes' case, if we can). My other points still stand...

Have a gander:








Also, is it just me, or does the thing Chibi Doremy is holding remind you of an onahole?

so for a little while i wasn't really able to get on Shoddy due to scheduling hassles and generally poor internet connectivity, and have just the past few days been getting back onto Shoddy, but whenever I try to it says "connection refused: connect"
is this just an issue on my end (like when my original laptop's firewall refused to let me connect) or did something happen on the Server's end?

Aichi you jerk.

Apparently something happened to the server, and EXS is on vacation or something so it won't be fixed for a while.
One day I'll be famous for all the amazing things I've achieved. But until then, I'm going to continue doing absolutely nothing.

server's apparently down right now. exs is currently off on a trip and i can't log in to the server machine outside of ftp for some reason so i can't do much right now.

if there's enough demand, i can put the temporary shoddy 1 server back up in the meantime, but...
