PTD: v2.6.1 Trading is back! Keep your fans close and your hackers closer.

Version 2.6.1 is out! Trading is back! But first the usual announcements.

Want to play Ninja-ja? Get a shiny pikachu, shiny mew, shiny starter or have your suggestion for a weapon design to be used on Ninja-ja? Click here for more info on how you can get those things.

Get your shiny Zubat! Click here!

This week is Ninja-ja first update, and here is the list that Dan and I came up with:
  • Android Version (0%)
    • Tweaks (0%)
  • Adding the Health Bar (50%)
    • Graphic (100%)
    • Programming (0%)
  • Being able to lose (death) (50%)
    • Graphic (100%)
    • Programming (0%)
  • Simple Point system (0%)
    • Programming (0%)
  • Sword mode (75%)
    • Graphic (50%)
    • Programming (100%)
  • And a new different Bo Staff Mode (0%)
    • Programming (0%) 
Okay now on to v2.6.1 a couple of new things on this update:
  • Trading is back again.
  • Shiny rate is now 1/1000 or 0.1% (more shinies!)
  • You can trade mew again.
Also I added a link to a trade chat if any of you are interested you can go to that one or use the one on the forum.
Now making a game as popular as PTD is going to get attention from a lot of people. Some of those people enjoy exploiting and hacking game. This is going to happen when the game is played offline and all the information is easy to edit. So instead of fighting them I've talked to them, and here is the resolution. If anybody wants to play the game with pokemon that are easier to catch (hit them once and they will turn red), x3 exp given per kill, x5 money given per kill they can, why not? 

So here is the link to the official hacked PTD version http://www.hackedarcadegames.com/game/5714/Pokemon-Tower-Defense.html

Also if you feel like cloning your pokemon is a good way to pass the time then go ahead, no harm done.

But... what about all the legit fans, all the people that don't want all this hacking and duping and easy exp?

What about all the people that bought Ninja-ja or that donated in the past? Is that all for nothing?

Fans, I got your answer.... Multiplayer!

Multiplayer will be ran all on a server, similar to how MMOs work, so there will be no duping, no free shinies (the shiny rate will return to lower rates in multiplayer), everybody will start from scratch, and if you donated or bought Ninja-ja you will get the following benefits.
  • You will get beta access to multiplayer (Play before anybody else)
  • You will get your shiny codes again so that your shiny pikachu, starters, and mew will be added to your multiplayer account, and will be totally legit.
  • You can think of Multiplayer almost as a sequel to PTD.
  • All your single player profiles for PTD will not be deleted, ever.
  • Multiplayer will be almost like a new game so it should be expected that you start over in a new game.
  • You won't be able to import anything from single player to multiplayer or vice versa.
  • The people who donated or bought Ninja-ja will get new codes, meaning they start over also but they might start over with a shiny starter (level 5) or a shiny pikachu (lvl 1) or shiny mew (lvl 1).
  • All the levels on multiplayer will be different from single player.
  • Multiplayer will have co-op and versus modes.
  • There is no date on multiplayer, most of the focus right now is on single player.
PTD Weekly Update Progress: Update out now!
  • Final Touches (100%)  
    • Double Slap will no longer slap for more than it is supposed to (100%)
    • On your profile "Pokemon" should be spelled correctly (100%)
  • New Story Level (100%)
    • Intro (100% done)
    • Waves (100% done)
    • Ending (100%)
  • Adding Items to PokeMart ( Postponed until next update)
    • New Evolutions (4) (100%)
      • Graphics (4) (100% done)
      • Shiny Graphic (4) (100% done)
      • Add pokemon stats to game (4) (100% done)
    • New Level Cap to 36 (100% done)
      • Moves for 29 (3) (100% done) Skipping Natural Gift
      • Moves for 30 (4) (100% done)
      • Moves for 31 (4) (100% done)
      • Moves for 32 (4) (100% done)
      • Moves for 33 (8) (100% done)
      • Moves for 34 (6) (100% done)
      • Moves for 35 (2) (100% done)
      • Moves for 36 (1) (100% done)
        Again your feedback is very important, I would love to hear it. Have a good night.

        2. Looking forward to multiplayer! And hooray for the return of trading! (and dammit mark, stealing the first post!?)

        7. Just a thought, could you add a bit more space to the top of cerulean gym so we can see the pokemon that are coming before they are being attacked?

          ReplyDelete
        8. im sure the multiplayer profile wont affect the 3 slots in the story mode.

          ReplyDelete
        9. @Jesus - like Marcus said, multiplayer will have a seperate slot. It might even be a different game/file all together.

          @Anon 12:47 - I'll see what I can do for the next update.

          ReplyDelete
        10. Okay sleep time for me, talk to you guys tomorrow, I will be posting about what the next update will be.

        12. OMGGGG :D YAYAYAY, better chance for shinies and now trading is back :D

          ReplyDelete
        13. wow...all the hours i put into lvling up abra and magikarp...all wasted now for multiplayer...

          ReplyDelete
        14. @Anon 12:53 - that is the nature of a game in alpha or even beta. WOW players suffered the same thing when they had level 60 characters and the game came out.

          ReplyDelete
        15. @Jesus - will fix the weird tile for next version.

        16. Hey Sam & Dan great job with the game. I have a couple questions to ask you guys.

          1. Do shiny pokemon gain exp faster than regular ones?

          2. Will there be an option to change your password for saving online sometime soon? (I know you can change the email address but what about the password?)

          3. You once had a poll about having advertisements in the beginning of ads so that you could update the game instantly. Whatever happened to that?

          All right well, thanks a lot. You are doing amazing and are one of the only people I know that are so responsive to your fan base. Thanks for the game.

          ReplyDelete
        17. Great Job Sam & Dan, Keep up the Great work!

        18. and you should add some credits to the game so far.
          at least your name and your site

        19. Hey Sam, any chance gastly is gonna show up soon?

          ReplyDelete
        20. I dont know if this is just bad luck or an actual problem, but I haven't seen an abra in the 2.6.1 update

          ReplyDelete
        21. i didn't really get this rite. but when this game is finished, and the final version come out whether its v10.9 or something, will we still have our save file or can do we have to start over O_O

          ReplyDelete
        22. When do you think multiplayer is going to come out? Also are you going to continue to updating the current game our are you going to focus on multiplayer? Love the game and although I don't really want to start over I think it'll be worth it :)

          ReplyDelete
        23. Thanks for lowering the shiny rate. I love this game but it is so frustrating when you play for a shiny magikarp and you find a shiny pidgey urg.

          However, this made me think. Now that shinies are more common, I figured I go get some blue version exclusives. I spend the majority of PTD playing on red so all of my pokemon and money is over there. Since I'll be spending time on blue, money will start to pile up. Could you implement a way to transfer money from one save file to another on the same profile?

          Anyways awesome work on this game Sam! Maybe after 2.7 take a nice break off from the game. It's well deserved!

          Darren

        24. Thank you Sam for doing all of the awesomely badass stuff that you are doing, I have enjoyed PTD so much and appreciate the tremendous amount of work you put into it. Also, it's fun to play the hacked version, thank you for including a link for it! A level 10 Squirtle already after level 1? That's just crazy :)

For all the people who bought the game, they also get their pokemon!^_^ I've spent i dunno HOWWW many hours...and to restart it all just because its multiplayer sounds silly...:( and saddening.:(

        35. Hey Sam!
          How about making a button in the game so that we can toggle sound on/off while we're playing?
          It would highly appreciated :)

          ReplyDelete
        36. I've updated the game at my forum if you want to play (make sure to import!). Click the open PTD link at the top of the forum when logged in!

          ReplyDelete
        37. So does this mean that all the work that I have done is thrown away if I don't do multiplayer? And I guess I mean "thrown away" pretty much strictly in regards to trading.

          In these last couple of weeks since trading has been opened up and the duplicating exploit has been found, the value of shinies and whatnot has been greatly reduced (yay economics) because they were all duplicated. Will this remain the case if I don't play multiplayer?

          And if I do play multiplayer, does that mean I have to start from scratch??? I would honestly enjoy multiplayer, because it sounds like that's how PTD was meant to be played but if I have to start from scratch, that's hours and hours and hours down the drain, and that's something that really kills my player's ambition, if you will.

          So here are just some silly worries that I have on my mind now.
          As always, amazing work, Sam. I'm really very impressed with all you have done. Hope you might be able to get back to me.

        38. WHEN DU YOU CREAT A NEW LEVEL

          ReplyDelete
        39. Hey Sam just wondering how you are going to cater for the legit players who have spent a long time trying to obtain shinies. I for example have 3 shinies that i caught in the wild. Will there be no way of using those in the multiplayer? Also if multiplayer is coming out is there any point in playing the new version if all we are going to see now is thousands of hacked pokemon?

        44. I don't like the ideia of losing everything. I have almost every pokemon in the game, and spent hours leveling them. Now you tell me that it was all a waste of time?
          Just because they are clonning and you can't solve this, doesn't mean you have to start over.
          Let the cheaters cheat, and the players play.

          ReplyDelete
        45. More shiny's and what, I only meet shiny pidgeys. Oh yeah and one jigglypuff.
          But still good game, keep going Sam.

          ReplyDelete
        46. Okay listen up everybody! I don't know if this is the case, but i think you guys are worring over nothing. You don't loose you'r singleplayer progress. It will still be there, its just that you can't use you'r pokemon from the single player in multiplayer. Multiplayer will have everyone that plays it start from the beggining ON THE MULTIPLAYER, NOT YOUR SINGLEPLAYER. Multiplayer will be like a new gametype, totaly seperate from singleplayer, were you will have to start from scratch, but only on multiplayer, not singleplayer! (I hope)

        48. @donators, you have an early access to the game for your donating, so you will have time to get a good team, before other players even arrive.
          if you get a way to transfer all your profile, (that may easily contain hacked pokemon) and then there is no even a reason to separate multiplayer accounts...
          I understand your feelings, if you were absolutely legal, but if you have an ability to transfer something to your multiplayer account, hackers will also hack through that. and if that happens, there will be another pile of free shinies and disturebed legal users...
          and make it hacker-free in a singleplayer implementation is just impossible. choose any singleplayer game and you will find a way to mess with it's savefile...

          @Sam, just curious, how many hackers are around there, so you just surrendered at once?:)

          Oh, and by the way, an updated my pokedex up to 2.6 (not 2.6.1 yet) — http://www.megaupload.com/?d=94APYL32 . Get it if you want one:) And don't believe any traders around the internet.

          ReplyDelete
        49. Good for you, Sam. Some people are passionate about the game, some people just want to hack it. Working with your fan base while keeping average players in mind is really cool. I can't wait to see how you work out HP and stuff for multiplayer.

          ReplyDelete
        50. Sam why is it my pokemon lost during the trading? what is Database cannot found/ error? Is it i cannot get back the pokemon forever? I cannot even see my code and security code yet! and my pokemon gone just like that...

          ReplyDelete
        51. Hi Sam, I haven't posted before, but I love your game. I appreciate all the effort you are putting into it despite the fact that getting too many players will put your game at risk of copyright takedowns.

          I think it's good that you have taken a stance in this whole "cheating matter" now, but personally I don't think this is the right way to go.

          I was intending to follow that up with a way to fix the duplication exploit, but then it turned out that it didn't completely fix it. So, I went to my classes and in the bus and during class refined it into something that did work. It's a bit long to write here, though, so I'll just send you the solution by email.

          what pokemon did u trade?

          ReplyDelete
        53. Hi Sam

          You should choose a different colour for the sign with what level is our pokemon in storage because I can't see it in some of my pokemon.

          ReplyDelete
        54. I think that's a bit mean, i mean, I don't want hacked pokemon, but I don't want to start from scratch again either.
          I put a lot of effort into catching every pokemon (every evolution state at least once) and a bunch of legit shinies, too.
          So I feel like my effort has been completely worthless now that the "free" players are abandoned like that, just because you don't want to fight those kiddies who don't want to PLAY the game but just want to have have have have have. Thx.

          I just feel that playing offline now is completely worthless and all I'm gonna do now is wait for multiplayer -.-'

          (No offense, just my opinion) :<

          ReplyDelete
        55. Sorry for double-post, but after reading my post I felt like I missed something:
          I just feel like all those players who were legit until now are kinda being grouped together with all that hacker scum, which kinda sucks. ^^

          But ! I don't want to be a douche, lol.
          I really am looking forward to multiplayer and I really appreciate all the effort you put into making this awesome game for us. Thank you.

          (and sorry for being a douche in my previous post)

        58. lol guys, stop crying. Its a game, its meant to be fun, not a work. If you worked 8h for 7 days to get lots of shinys, you are just dumb, its not Sam's fault. I really believe that Multiplayer should start all over, and I guess its going to be really nice.

          ReplyDelete
        59. @sam

          so does that mean that if we want to play multiplayer, we have to start from scratch? or can we just import our profile?

          ReplyDelete
        60. Can somebody please explain to me what the problem is? As far as I can tell, Sam is still going to update single player. And no one is forcing you to hack, or trade with hackers or play the hacked version. You can just play by yourself in single player if you want. You can just treat it the way you did before trading began All Sam was saying is that multiplayer will be unhackable, unlike singleplayer. There will be no major changes to the singleplayer, just the addition of legal hacks. It's the same old PTD, there's just a legit hacked version. He's still gonna release a single player, without a hack. So quite frankly I don't see what's so bad about it.

          I just wanted to be able to say all that, and would love to have someone correct me if I'm wrong about anything

        64. >Legit players getting punished because of hackers

          I don't agree with that. All players are getting punished, because they basicaly agreed to play a non-finished game in its beta version. Current architecture is not secure enough. And it should be changed for the game to stay fun.
          Insecure is not fun. It's not hackers creating a problem, it's human's greed. And you can basically do nothing with that.

        67. A lot of people have been asking for Gastly, Snorlax, Safari, Level Cap Increase, but has anyone pointed out WE'RE ONLY AT THE SECOND GYM! It's going to be a lot longer til we get to the end, and I pesonally want to see some new pokemon at the end and not level 50's at the 4th gym.

        68. Sam,
          will u go back and redo the shiny pidgey, jigglypuff, rattata, geodude, and zubat giveaways.
          That is the only thing I am worried about, everything else can be redone.

          ReplyDelete
        69. Hey Sam, I got two humble requests, because I really think they would improve this game!

          First, and most important: Please improve Trading. Let us at least see the Moves of that very pokemon we are going to aquire. (eg someone traded me a shiny Charmander with TACKLE...) This might not actually be important anymore once you've implemented Attack relearner though..

          And a second, more personal request:
          Please, please, please redo the Vileplume sprite.. Because Gloom looks very roundish and kinda chubby, but Vileplume is actually much thinner than Gloom. Not in PTD though :(
          (tl,dr: He's fat, make him thinner please!) XD

          ReplyDelete
        70. Wow! Fantastic! Choffee15 here, also a random anon about multiplayer like a line tower defense... I take a break from PTD and it has evolved so much... Simply amazing! Trading? WOW!

          For all the people who complain about a flash game being hacked, any old school pokemon player did the rare candy glitch back in the gameboy color days...

          I've noticed a few random glitches as far as levels still going till finished even though all boulders/rare candies are gone. I find it to be either after a certain level, such as past level 12 on mt. moon 2 and even the rare candies on cerulean gym. It usually deals with blue bar pokemon.

          Cerulean gym is also riddled with some blind spots... mainly from the middle.

          Might I suggest that evolved pokemon have a slight bigger field of vision due to fact that they are bigger?

          Loved the new challenge mode, definably more please. Perhaps a build your own challenge mode in the future for fan based game. Worked for starcraft...

          Thanks again for the nostalgic yet innovative application! Sam and Dan, keep up that good work. (I do hope you found a good artist that blends with what you are doing)

        73. This has gotta to be the most interesting turn of events yet. o.o Hacker and creator have now come to a truce, separate file for Multiplayer, and chance there will be no hacking in Multiplayer? I gotta say, this is one epic outcome due to several issues with hacking ^_^

          ReplyDelete
        74. Yeah I don't think people understand, this is NOT A FINISHED GAME. It's still in the alpha stages. We may have to reset 2 or 3 more times before a finished version is released. If you don't want to start again (which is still fun), then don't play the alpha version of the game. Just don't play for a year or however long it takes.

Oh, adding on to what I said to 8:29, I just thought to maybe ease people's trouble in thinking that what they did in Story Mode was for not, maybe have a different story going on in Multiplayer mode. Not sure how, but all I can think of are the Orange Islands, Islands One through Three (If they aren't included in Story Mode), or Johto (Which would make even more people happy and okay with starting a whole new profile, but...that'd would contradict what you've said in the past with this game only having the first 151 pokemon + Cameos.) Just my thoughts on it.

        76. I have a Magikarp XD!!! The new challenge is very nice but attack looks more difficult than defense.
          This game is amazing!!!

        77. can u add legendary pokemon (dont care if capturable it would be better if it was) even if the arent on the same generation because there is only four on the first generation and i want more

          ReplyDelete
        78. Awesome game so far! And yay, trading is back!

          I went and caught some extra Magikarp and raised them to level 15, so, if you want one, the codes are:

          14ddbb43e95374-e2c3
          14ddbb46175337-e5c4

          I also caught some extra Poliwag to use to trade for Jynx, but I wasn't sure if I should evolve them before I put them up for trade. And I promise, all of them are legit.

        79. I wonder if the people complaining about "having to start over" are reading it like I am. Where in multiplayer we will have separate profiles but maybe I am wrong. I don't believe we will have to restart our main profiles for multiplayer is what I am trying to say.

          ReplyDelete
        80. SAAAAAAAAAM The challenge level is way too hard. This difficulti is for maybe the 5th challenge lvl because you know what to do but it's so hard to do it. I would be happy if you would change the attack of geodude so he can only hit ONE pokemon. Because it's irritating if I have my pickachu burst trough while my pokemon keep geodude busy.... But then he uses earthquake and my whole party is devasteded(srry forgot how you spelled that)

          ReplyDelete
        81. Hmmm.. I was worried that it would be impossible to make it near legit without making it all done server side... This unfortunately seems like the best solution. All the people that publicize hacking, and publicize vids of people who hack (even if they arent in that vid) should be ashamed for making sam have to resort to this. I know Im ashamed of them.

          Although it was necessary since the majority of the people who play this game want to do no work whatsoever, its also a shame that the shiny rate was increased. Now my first shiny will feel empty.

          I look forward to multiplayer Sam. Feel like giving us an idea of what you are planning on it being like?

          Also... for some reason when I login to my google account I am still posting as anon... I am haing to just use the regular name feature for some reason...

          ReplyDelete
        82. I agree with anon 8.30: This is not a finished game!

          And whoever even considers their hard work with catching this pokemon or gaining that level is anything at all in comparison to the amount of work and skill to actually make the game, needs some perspective on "hard work". Sam is coming up with brilliant solutions, and all the players are helping him get there, but we have no rights to keep our pokemon or get compensations, etc. when it's still alpha version - except for those who paid, who are recieving a compensation/their pokemon.

        83. Is it only me and 10:04 that actuly reads as multiplayer will have a seperate profile to start over againn on, without loosing your singleplayer progress? Well, i don't know what timezone he lives in, but he will wake up soon to give us the answer.

          ReplyDelete
        84. Sam, you know what... sometimes I think you're being too nice lol. When you have a popular game like PTD there will be a lot of stupid and/or ignorant players. This is not the first time you concede to their demands (like making mt moon far easier, making shinies less rare etc.) Now you're even conceding to the hackers. Not saying it's bad, but I do hope you have fun in developing this game and having your own ideas, not just conceding to the demands of the players.

          ReplyDelete
        85. as u say u read all comments ill try. u should make an update that whenever u receive a pokemon it automatically saves so if u close it by accident the pokemon dont go away or u should make a code reusable

          ReplyDelete
        86. Sam will it be possible to trade pokemon from our current profile to the new multiplayer profile?

          ReplyDelete
        87. The hacked version is good for level grinding. Personally, i play the non hacked version until i've caught all the pokemon released with each update. Then i go to the hacked version to level them up. Saved me hours of time with magikarp and abra. I'm another college student and I'm in finals week right now and i needed my weekly fix of ptd. Keep up the good work sam.

          ReplyDelete
        88. @ Cat - I absolutely agree with you, but at the same time, you can't make everyone happy.

          Take away the hacking, hackers get mad.
          allow the hacking to go on somewhere else, real players get mad.
          shiny hunting easier, people who spent forever hunting and caught mad.
          shiny hunting harder, people who spent forever hunting and not finding mad.

          It's impossible to make everyone happy, So as long as Sam is doing what he wants with the game, thats all that matters.

        97. Xtremevillain - That would be unfair to the others. Plus I'm not so sure he means any harm. I mean just look at how much he loves the game. He's so concerned about it that he's vehemently expressing his opinion and just wants it to be perfect. He's even offering to help us make multiplayer better by testing its security with his friends! And for free! It's fans like him that make it all worth it. <3 Anon XOXOXO

        98. Holy shit, what's wrong with you guys?
          Insulting Sam and begging for getting your best will?
          He's trying to make the best of the game, if you go on complaining how about him totally dropping the project? Holy shit...
          I gotta admit, I hope singleplayer will be separated from multiplayer, but it's HIS freaking work and HIS time he's spending on entertaining us for free!
          If you bought a graphic, that's not his fault...

          And by the way, the game is not destroyed because of hackers!
          I admit, I made ONE account, totally independent of my real account, on which I just collect one of each shiny version of a pokemon...but that doesn't affect my game at all, I still play it like normal...

          ReplyDelete
        99. @non glitterloving girl, just curious, how are you going to help hackers?:)
          And why do you think, hackers can't hack untradeable shinies? it's not so hard currently to get pokemon without trade system by modifying your save file..:)
          Sam could try to fight hackers in singleplayer, but that can never be secure enough.
          removing the ability to trade shinies won't help...

          as for promoting his game with nintendos IP, that's the worst part of this story and Nintendo might rage at him, but that's not our problem... we could easily miss his games, if it wasn't about those popular pokemon:)

          ReplyDelete
        100. Something needs to be done about the boss pokemon in celuren. They got too much HP to kill and trying to whirlwind/sleep them is proving useless. This same issue arouse with the geodudes in MT Moon. Please nurf the HP so it's more fair. Fast moving and High HP is a poor combination.

          ReplyDelete
        101. hey Sam,

          this is a pretty serious question I have now,

          I read your comment about having multiplayer
          start all over again from scratch, no one has mentioned this but does this mean that in multiplayer you will start from the first story mode level?

          How will trading get done in multiplayer?

          When will multiplayer start?

          I've been a legit trainer not cheating at all but I've been getting kind of addicted to this game,so if you can give me a start date for multiplayer I don't mind taking a small break and coming back and starting all over again when multiplayer starts.

          I'll post this message again a couple times when I see your online so that this can get answered.

          Once again, thanks for everything, I'm sad it had to come to this but I understand the pressure you were under. Please please respond to this post when you can I'll check the comments every couple hours.

          ReplyDelete
        102. this is making me not want to play anymore...why should i have to start over with all the time i spent on your game? i was a huge fan until you decided you would make us start from scratch, all to stop hackers. i understand what you're trying to do, but i don't think this is the solution. i've spent countless hours on this game, only to find out you've wasted my time. i say a big NO to this solution.

        106. if you play PTD on two different places like newgrounds.com and playtowerdeffencegames.com, you could trade over a pokemon, then import profile on the other account and copy pokemon.

          I know this is hard to fix, but it's just something I noticed.

          great game though, cant wait to the next update

          ReplyDelete
        107. sent a bunch of magicarps to manugc88:)
          metronome is an move, that makes a random move when it's used.
          with the help of old rod you can catch magikarps in mysty's gym.
          you will get your second bage in the next level (which is not done yet)
          and there are not so much new pokemon currently since 2.5. just Magikarp with Gayarados and an unobtainable Primape.

          ReplyDelete
        108. I do approve of starting over, and I've got almost every pokemon by my own and completed everything.

          It hurts me far more that pokemon can learn Bite and it appears as a dark move, but there aren't any dark pokemon in the game, not even Sneasel.

          ReplyDelete
        109. UPDATE MORE INFO ON MULTIPLAYER:

          You can think of Multiplayer almost as a sequel to PTD.
          All your single player profile for PTD will not be deleted, ever.
          Multiplayer will be almost like a new game so it should be expected that you start over in a new game.
          You won't be able to import anything from single player to multiplayer or vice versa.
          The people who donated or bought Ninja-ja will get new codes, meaning they start over also but they might start over with a shiny starter (level 5) or a shiny pikachu (lvl 1) or shiny mew (lvl 1).
          All the levels on multiplayer will be different from single player.
          Multiplayer will have co-op and versus modes.
          There is no date on multiplayer, most of the focus right now is on single player.

        112. Hey, everyone! I got an idea for all you people who are complaining about starting all over! Think of yourselves as "Beta-testers" since this is only the alpha and there's several bugs out there right now. Spot out these bugs, post them here, and voila, you've made the multi-player that much more fine-tuned as a finished product, where instead of having to wait for an update each week, you can probably just play the whole game in one or two sittings, with access to everything on the spot! (Pokemart, Inventory, Relearner, Challenge Mode...)

          Just my opinion on this whole drama over 'starting-over.' Playing right now is beta-testing, while 'starting-over' is playing the game as you would a regular game (As in not spend weeks grinding while waiting for the update but just playing the game as it should be)

        113. @Anon 1:52 - It is close to impossible to stop cloning, as even if you stop one way another way will soon show up, and I would spend most of my time fixing security than building the game.

        118. You guys dont get my point:

          If you cant trade shinies, hackers wont dupe em.

          Look, theres a forum where they coordinate that. This site was like frozen at the moment trade was disabled.

          And the worst thing?!?!? SAM KNOWS THAT!

        119. Anon 2:01 - if you can't trade shinies, then why trade, it's so easy to get the red/blue exclusives and trade them to yourself.

        121. Oh Sam,


          Since you are online right now. Do you know if you ever got the email from xsumstevex@gmail.com saying to send any of the codes or exclusives for Ninja-ja Hero edition to jonkopterski@sbcglobal.net? I gave him the money for the game and he bought it for me, but he had already bought Master Edition. He received the codes that were suppose to go to me, but it was ok because he emailed them to me and I got Ninja-ja and all of the codes. I just want to make sure that you know that when you do send out codes for the exclusive Ninja-ja stuff, or for PTD multiplayer codes that you know to send those to my email. You can email him to ask if this all true if you want to. I'll text him and tell him to respond.

          Thanks Sam.

        122. Why ure stuck on this Red/blue thing?

          Make a whole game. Make every Pokemon catchable but with different rate.....you got a goal. Showing an abra is something special in multi than. Trade is a worse idea. If you just stop that, your game will be as big as it was. Dont keep to something that even on Gameboy didnt work. I mean, not even Nintendo (and they got a bit more capacity than u i guess) couldnt stop doubling or other cheats. Dont stuck on something u dont need.

          Honestly, i might sound harsh, but its some way useless. We play to achieve something. if we dont have to, its unnessecary to play. I trade all pokemon if i want. Shinies??? why the hell shinies Sam? Lets keept it to tactic and fun...not to make-up. You say its the best way to slove it. i say its true. in fact youre just stopping trading for multiplayer. go further: Stop trading at all, but let us improt our files. Know what? im willing to lose all my progress. delete all files and give donaters shinies. I will start again, but not 10 times. Let us now enjoy your game and import it later. lets delete all files to make sure hacked pokemone wont make it to multiplayer.

          I really want your game to suceed. And im concernt. that why i am this agressive.

        130. i like the idea of multiplayer and dont mind starting over, however i think it's unfair people will get to play before others and get special pokemon others cant have if they donated or bought ninja-ja. people donated to get codes for ptd and since you said this is "almost like a new game" i just dont think its fair. they already got an advantage on ptd and now they will have a huge advantage on multiplayer making it almost worthless for free players to even play.

        131. first is apologize for my English because it's pretty bad. thank you very much for all your games, you just would make a suggestion to pokemon tower''defends''Could you do a very list of all pokemons q can capture? So we know what we need. again thank you very much ^ ^

        132. MMMh Sam, did you ever mention to make those NPC trades bigger?

          I mean hidden things to achieve and different ways to play to get a NPC to apear...you could stay at trades this way and still get Hackers off.

          or how about 2 challange servers?
          The one with singleplayeraccounts could be like : Improved Settings
          and the other one could be the one u start over.

        137. completely agree that multiplayer should be focused on

        138. I donated, but I donated because I have enjoyed the ride so far, not because I had to have free sparkly starters. I do like being taken care of, but for me it is no great deal to start over, the game is more fun starting out anyway. By the time you are working up Jynx, Abra and the MagiKarp you are spending a lot of time repeating the same processes.

          The old rod challenge is great, since even after figuring it out, it takes bit of careful timing and luck.

          Thanks, Sam, this is fun.

          P.S. Being able to select a pokemon that is under the wave number lettering would be nice!

          ReplyDelete
        139. i kno that the duping ruined the trading system, but we shouldnt have to start over. it kinda ruines the point of having defensive moves on pokemon unless there will be offensive levels later. Anyway i think we should be able to trade our pokemon over from our regular profiles to the multiplayer ones. like have a set amount of time to trade over than delete the trading feature after that set time

          ReplyDelete
        140. It's unfair people who paid for ninja-ja and got codes for this game also get better pokemon and get to play before others on the "sequel" to this game. They will have too much of an advantage and it will ruin the game for people who didn't buy ninja-ja. Just make everyone equal. They already got their codes and used them. Just my opinion but i think that they've already got enough and we should all be able to experience multiplayer at the same time the same way.

And you're still getting the game, I don't see how it ruins the game. Sure, they get a headstart, but so what? Sure, they get a few shinies, but again, so what? They paid money for more content. Don't harp on this game because it's a flash/not-owned-by-a-major-gaming-company-(for now)

        148. that ninja game is awful. why r u guys makin that too when u already have another better more popular idea. makes no sense from an entrepreneurship standpoint

          ReplyDelete
        149. they made it to look like people are buying that game instead of codes for pokemon. now if you did buy that game you'll have a super advantage on multiplayer

          ReplyDelete
        150. If multiplayer should be ran on a server, then it should be no problem to ban cheaters from the server? bam, dupling solved? (easy for me to say)

        151. Anon 3:30, anyone can hack for any pokemon, thus people who paid are not receiving their benefits anymore.

          Anon 3:40, Because they enjoy making games and are following their dreams.

          Anon 3:34, having shinies isn't a huge advantage in multiplayer, and getting to play before other is done in many games. It is called a beta. A few betas we have had in the last few years: Halo: Reach, Gears of War III, Crysis 2.

          Anon 3:39, Sam already said multiplayer will be all on servers.

        153. i guess people who bought a totally seperate game & already got and used bonuses deserve even more bonuses now? this is a "sequel" and everyone should start even. enough bonuses already. just because i buy a game doesnt mean they have to give me every expansion pack for that game plus others. you have ninja-ja now enjoy it and dont act like youre entitled to get yet another bonus for multiplayer

          ReplyDelete
        154. Wolffus, duping is impossible on the server, because you don't have acess to all those things at serverside.
          Yet, that doesn't mean, cheating is impossible;)

          I also agree, Sam should make priorities on multiplayer, cause this singleplayer is not fun anymore. you don't have goals to achieve, when everything arround is duped. Sam, if you are not planning multiplayer fast enough, you should stop duping at least for some time now.

        155. Anon 3:53,

          I could right now go out and download a program from some site that allows me to download anything in PTD for free...and you're saying that people who paid for Ninja-ja got their bonuses? I am not mad at Sam, because it is not his fault that hacking spread, but please just try to understand what I am saying.

        156. sam i really have no words to say, you are a definitly genious, solving everthing and making things better than how they were before, it's incredible, there are no words. and it's great to post again as anonymous, there were so many things that i wanted to post while i couldn't post as anonymous :) multiplayer is coming soon, can't belive it
          sorry about the writting i'm from argentina.

        157. Lol if people who already got bonuses get even more i'm done with this game. It should be a fresh start for all. What's fair is fair and giving certain people that bought a totally seperate game an unfair advantage is just wrong.

        160. The codes were for ptd single player where it only affects the game they are playing, and look what happened by restricting people from having the same pokemon as others, it just made people hack to get them. By letting people have "special" pokemon will only be more of an incentive for people to try to hack multiplayer. I think all should start even and totally fresh or all should be able to trade to multiplayer.

        162. Hello sam.
          So all the work you have put into making the storylevels and challangelevels, will be for nothing when the multiplayer comes out?
          I was hoping when the multiplayer comes out, we would have a lot of hours gameplay because we should do all the levels again.
          So will we just start over with a new story and so on, and why?
          Tans

        163. Sam and Dan I have a few suggestions for you;

          Stop raising the level cap. I know this will be unpopular but when did you hear about Blastioses at the second gym.

          Don't start on multiplayer yet. Please finish up solo player first because solo player is really fun.

          Add uncommon pokemon like abra and growlithe in later levels as well. In these later levels make them more common.

          Thanks for reading our comments!

          ReplyDelete
        164. Now we're taling. We can keep the single player profiles but the multiplayer will need a new one.
          For me, that's ok.

          And greetings from Brazil o/

          Obrigado!

          ReplyDelete
        165. 1) Why can't I post with my gmail account, wtf? It won't let me log in?
          2) PLEASE continue solo play. I loved the challenge mode and I can't wait to see how you'll do the next levels, gyms, and actually incorporate STRATEGY in here! Our pokemon need to start getting injured!!
          3) Always thanks for the game.

        168. @Crazymerio are you just saying all this cuz u are a donater and anons plz go to select profile go to name/url and make up a name its annoying when i see anon anon anon all over the place!

          ReplyDelete
        169. 3:04 has a point, Sam, if you can place a mute button while playing...because when you hit exit, and go all the way back, you have to re-select your Pokemon. An alternate would be, keeping the Pokemon you selected in the boxes before fighting a level.

          5:44 also has a good point, the levels are hard to see on the selection screen.

          Rafael - never say unhackable...someone will hack it, lol. The only way it'll be "unhackable" is if he makes it on his server only, with no trading allowed. Then shinies will be useless except for hitting the level cap faster. No other stat benefits.

          6:24 - what is the punishment, I can't tell...we get trading back and they can do whatever they want?

          7:07 also has a great point, Sam. I got a "Shiny Raichu"....that knew Harden.

          10:07 - deal with it. That's what a challenge is for. I beat it and I posted pictures of it. There are youtube videos out of it -- this just indicates how much people like the game!!

          12:42 - I, out of luck, have killed ONE. ONE Starmie. I also posted a picture where it had a SLIVER of a bar life left. The more you level, the easier it should be.

          1:03 also makes an OK point...I've been asking for Toxic Spikes to have a longer attack duration. 180 cooldown and 180 duration isn't that good. 180/540 or whatever would be nice.

          4:20 nailed it.

        179. sam do'nt give any bonuses on multiplayer. make it all fair and even

          ReplyDelete
        180. It's not right if people get bonuses on multiplayer. It will ruin the game before it starts. make everyone start out the same, that way whoever works harder will have the better team instead of who bought a seperate game that has already gotten the benefits.

          ReplyDelete
        181. Magikarp's Splash should have a faster cooldown, or have splash give it a good exp boost or something. it takes too long to get it to level 15 to learn tackle. Even jiggypuff's sing has a long cooldown but it not as painfull an exp climb as magikarp demands.

          ReplyDelete
        185. @ sam

          on the DS you cannot trade with people over the internet. and for good reason. make trading ONLY possible via bluetooth on the APK version. this will stop hackers. because right now trading is kinda causing big issues with this game. don't get me wrong. it's neccesary, but it should be harder than this to get all the pokemon from both versions.

          ReplyDelete
        186. ...No, I will trade the Beedril for a shiny Magikarp.

          ReplyDelete
        187. Personally, to everyone above me who's said the benefits for people who bought Ninja-ja on Multi-player "ruining the game" is so...ignorant.

          Think about it. Over the shiny-codes for Pikachu, starter, and Mew, I highly doubt it. You can get all these pokemon regularly. The only worthwhile one of this bunch is Shiny Mew, but Mew's not the 'best' legendary/pokemon out there. If you're going to use the exp bonus as an argument, fine. I say get rid of the exp boost on shinies.

          As for the head-start...Are you really going to whine like a baby about that? A little head start is not going to 'ruin the game.' Sure, it'll define who's better at the very start of the multi-player being released, but if anything, this will balance out within a week or two from it's release, knowing there's people out there who have a lot of free time on their hands and don't have better things to do.

          Eesh. It's just a game people.

        190. Hey Sam, sorry if this has already been suggested before, but I was thinking it would be kind of nice if you added super effective (2x and 4x) and not very effective (1/2x, 1/4x and 0x) text during text. You've pretty much done the same for critical hits, so this wouldn't be too difficult right?

        191. hey guys just asking, what will you guys do if you had
          a) a shiny clefairy, will you evolve it into clefable o not?
          and b)if you got a shiny poliwhirl, and just one, will you trade it to get a shiny jynx?

          ReplyDelete
        192. a) No, not yet.
          b) There's no guarantee you'll get a shiny Jynx, right?

        193. Hey I traded my geodude and got a shiny graveler *YAY* played a lvl and then lost him :'( i was wondering if this has happened to anyone else. And what is the rod for and how do you lvl up magikarp

        194. Sam please i beg you to out in a dratini everyone wants one and a eevee so in the next lvl please add them or in the mystery gift event please sam thank you in advance please respond

        195. Uh, if there's going to be a Dratini, it should be via another Rod challenge.

        196. your right thanks

          ReplyDelete
        197. You are all idiots. Dratini should come in at the end of the game, not right now. For the anon that suggested that, THAT IS A STUPID IDEA. When you include Dratini it should definetly be after or slighty before the 8th gym. Thanks Sam and Dan for the great game!
