Technical Difficulties

Visit the PTD: Pokemon Center - a place to trade pokemon, get your Daily Code, adopt Pokemon, view your items and change your avatar!

UPDATE 5/15/2012 2:46AM EST
The game and the pokemon center should now be up and running! I'm still transferring some pokemon from inactive accounts over but that will be good to go in a couple of days. It's good to be back!
-Sam


As many of you might have noticed, if you are an avid Sam and Dan Games fan, the Pokemon Center and the game will not load or save. This is due to our current host GoDaddy. We pretty much have outgrown their shared hosting plan so in order to not cause problems they added a filter that will block very active users from the sndgames.com server. The solution to this is to move to a more capable hosting service. This process is not an easy one and it takes a large amount of time to complete due to the vast amount of data that needs to be transferred . I ask for your patience in the matter. We will still be working on our games HTD, PTD 2, and ANPO while this is happening so it doesn't mean all progress has come to a halt. We will keep you updated on Twitter and here on the blog on the progress for getting PTD back on its feet and ready to go. Even if we had a 100 people this process would take a couple of weeks. We will get it working asap. Thanks for the support.

P.S. You will not lose any data that was saved.
P.S.S. We can't process any orders for the SnD Coins as well since that involves accessing the site which we are both currently blocked from. We'll respond with an email accordingly to any orders that come in and will process the orders as soon as we can.

HTD: Since the latest 3 posts are all rather significant I'm just going to post a small HTD update here in order to keep them all on the front page. As noted above we're having some issues that we need take care of ASAP. Since Sam has heavy involvement in that process we are pushing off the next HTD release till we get this server issue resolved. The next HTD release will contain a bunch of stuff that we've be working on (Not including reworked graphics) and we'll be continuing to work on everything in the meantime. Sorry about the delay guys!
-Dan

UPDATE 5/11/2012 7:17PM EST
Good progress has been made, I'm in the process of moving the databases to a new server. I moved the user database which has over 2 million entries on it today. Along with the small HTD database that only has 60 thousand entries. There are 8 different pokemon databases, the biggest one has 11 million entries in it. Smallest one has over 1 million. Sadly I can't automate this process since I don't have direct access to the server. I have to slowly take chunks of the database (about 200k entries) and import them on the new server. So we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but we still have to dig for quite a few days and then test everything to make sure it works. In the meantime since I moved the user database and the HTD database (which was tiny and took a few minutes) HTD is now playable again!

    1. Also it means 1st. :) I will be patient and cheer you on! By the way, will you add Victini to the Pokemon Adoption Service yet? Otherwise, there's no other possible way to get Victini. I really want one! :( Keep up the good work Sam! :)

    7. i think their is less people playing it now because the elite four is too hard, it needs strong pokemon and good stratigy, ( i don't have any problems with it ) but their is ALOT PPL ON YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK complaining about how hard it's and i've noticed the pokemon are too fast specially the shinies, the ROAR move can't hit them.

    9. Same as Kevin's question Sam, will you do something about the daily gifts we haven't been able to get??

    10. IF you do do some kind of special mystery gift, it should be one that only lasts for 24 hours for people who are actually checking several times everyday

      Thanks for this amazing game. Seriously hope it never gets shut down!

    11. I love how almost all the comments (including this one) are completely off topic. Either way good luck with switching everything over. Hope it all goes well and everything will be back to normal within a week or two.

      Sam Don't take me wrong, you have all my support, though I don't know how it would be useful to PTD. I was just curious about the daily gifts, and if you don't do something special after PTD comes back to life, I won't be mad at you because this is not your fault :)

    15. Sam,I love all your hard work being put into this,and I want to congratulate you on your success.Please,take your time for PTD.But I ask you,(sorry for going off topic!)When is Digimon TD coming out?I'm a huge Digimon fan!!!Please reply soon!

    1. Wait, is there an app out there? is it for iphone? can it load already completed data from the computer? man, i hope droid doesnt end up having everything awesome.

      Delete
    2. TND: Yes, there's an Android app available in the "Game Download Links" section above. There likely won't be an iPhone app because due to not owning the Pokémon IP, the app would not be approved for the Apple App Store, and iOS does not provide an option for installing apps from external sources. Walled gardens are bad for indie developers, I recommend avoiding such devices in the future.

      Delete
    3. The issue with making the game an iPhone app isn't due to the App Store terms of service. The problem is that it is a flash game (iPhones don't support flash).

  6. there is one thing i dont understand. am i right when i say that you pay for the server? so if you pay for a server how can they block users. this is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They are blocking users based on the fact that they are "spamming" the webserver. To protect other sites in the same server.

      Delete
    2. Spamming messages, spamming data,spam how? and are you still paying even while you are blocked? do you make money off us? i dont care if you do, more power to you, but im just curious.

      Delete
    3. You buy access to a server, not physical ownership of it, and within the TOS for most servers, says basically "if your traffic reaches a high level, we'll shut it down".

      TND: Yes, the Pokecenter has ads, which he earns revenue from, as well as the sale of any SnD coins. If traffic is getting as strong as it sounds like it may be, then the ads are likely primarily for offsetting the cost of running the servers.

      Sam: Have you looked into Amazon EC2 for hosting? I've heard lots of good things about them, and they seem significantly more likely to be able to handle a heavier load than the average web host.

      That's good. I had just finished getting everything to level 100 the previous day, with the exception of certain things such as Chansey, Tangela, Lickitung, Golbat... Stuff that will evolve by level-up.

      Delete
    2. You're wrong. Chansey levels up at maximimum happiness. Tangela and Lickitung don't evolve until Gen. 4. Golbat evolves through trade. Even though PTD Wiki suggests not to use Bulbapedia, at least it helps.

      Delete
    3. Missingno. MasterMay 11, 2012 at 8:46 PM

      Sam's previously confirmed that happiness evolutions will involve at least one level-up and that he wants to include the Generation IV evolutions in PTD2. And you say you use Bulbapedia (which I do too), and yet you think Golbat evolves by trading. Golbat evolves through happiness.

      Delete
    4. Oh, ok. Sorry, I must have thought wrong.

      Delete
    5. Sorry. By the way, when will Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon, and Blast Burn appear? They are starter exclusive move, do 150 damage ( plus STAB ), and require maximum happiness. Also, for happiness, I think that PTD 2 should have more levels that hurt your team's Pokemon so that when you win battles without fainting and using them more often without leaving them in the Storage. Great game, Sam, and I hope you can fix this issue!


      P.S. When will there be another way of getting Victini?
      P.P.S. If Golbat evolves through happiness, why does Crobat have a MAD face? Nintendo logic. >_<

  15. A bit upset about this, not at you but at godaddy. I saw a comment about reimbursing people on lost daily codes, and I wanted to pose the same question. Maybe you could give us a sweet mystery gift after its all dealt with to reward our patience? Maybe shiny Victini, since that is the only form of victini that is missing.

  27. Dear Sam,
    I've read through these comments and they address a lot of legitimate concerns. But one thing that I am worried about is I have been playing Route 19 for most of the day and I've caught 3 Shiny Magikarps, as well as leveled my team a lot. Usually, I save after every shiny caught, but then I saw the Twitter post and I thought it would be a quick fix. So, I just continued to play and lucked out with two more. If I don't close my browser and wait to save after the fix, can I do that? Or will I have to refresh my page to load a new version and lose my xp-progress and shinys. I can send you a screenshot for proof, even though you and I both know that's little evidence with editting and all that. But I'd really appreciate an answer as I'm sure other people have leveled and caught shinys without realizing the technical issue until it was too late.

    Here's hoping for a speedy recover,
    Briander (aka witzbrian@yahoo.com)

    2. I agree for the most part. It isn't his fault. That being said, a short term increase in the Daily Gift doesn't seem unreasonable. The entire player base is going to lose significant time on that. I would suggest doubling all the gifts for the number of days the servers were down. Then everyone should break about even. Giving away a rare mystery gift is not the way to go.

      Delete
    3. I'm with you. If this happened it's not Sam's fault, it's our fault. We are the guys that keep playing a lot of hours like maniacs. Guys, we have to Stop asking Sam to do things like changing the daily gift to regular dogs or asking him stupid questions like "Are we going to be able to make up for the Daily Gifts we get. I get a Daily gift every day, so it is going to ruin me." Go Sam! Keep up the good work!

  58. I think the main problem is not how often do You enter PTD.
    I think the biggest problem is many people has multiaccounts for 2 reasons: to gain more shadows on casino and to get faster shinies on the game playing many profiles at the same time. This is the reason server crashes.
    If You can make a way to avoid people playing many different accounts at the same time (i don't know how...probably a limit to connection with the Ip adress will help), You will get reduce the number of visits to the server and the "spamming" problem should be solved.
    Anyway congrats from one player that follows You almost since the beginning.
    And finally, please forgive my mistakes, my English is a little bit rusty XD

    3. Two things:
      1) The main problem is Godaddy, I agree with that.
      2) He is right with the multiaccounts problem. If your brothers/sisters have PTD accounts, just log out your account and log in into your bros/sisters ones. He is referring to people who opens dozens PTD windows AT ONCE to get easier shinies. For example, you can´t open 2 different trading center windows (from different accounts) at once, why don't the same solution to PTD game window?

      Delete
    4. When you buy a server, you are buying two things: memory for uploading data and server access by users. He is referring to the second case. That's why is talking about the massive simultaneous accesses that overload the server

  69. How long exactly will it take for you to fix Pokemon Tower Defence because you said it would take a couple of weeks with 100 people working on it I am at the Elete 4 and I just want to beat the game this is my favorite game and I give it a 10/10 also whe will Pokemon Tower Defence 2 come out because you said in a previous blog that you were going to make that before Hero Tower Defence and I like Pokemon better I think you should make Pokemon Tower Defence 2 kind of like Soul Silver/Heart Gold or mayby like the show and have it go like you are Ash and go through Johto getting badges there and instead of the Elete 4 make it like the pokemon league and vs your rival at the end like Gary or something, something with a completley different storyline would be awesome I would love that plus the new pokemon isnt that great so I would make it like johto Love Maruto he is just like Naruto.

  70. Hope all is going fine Sam :) Love your game can't wait for PTD 2! Keep it up!

    P.S EVERYONE STOP ASKING FOR MYSTERY GIFTS!!!!ITS NOT SAMS FAULT SO STOP ASKING AND LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Hé Sam i've got a idea can't you show all badges like it's real. And that you your SndCoin can change into casino coins for example: 1Snd Coin is 500,000 casino coins.

    ReplyDelete
  72. How about we don't want gifts or anything for free. We just want the guys to keep doing what they do best. They brought a whole culture back here people... All the respect, love and support. :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. EVERYONE, stop asking Sam for all these mystery gifts like dogs and birds they are in the game just stop whining!, also it isn't Sam's fault that this is happening! you guys should be cheering him on to get it done but most are just whining! TRY TO HELP SAM BY CHEERING


    And Sam thanks for all your effort!

  74. Just thought I should let you know that a website is saying that Pokemon Tower Defense 2 is already up and is getting people to go to that website to try and play it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh,um.... if you're still looking for a good host server, I believe I may know of one.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Glad you are making such quick progress Sam. Hopefully it continues to move along faster than expected. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sam, is there a way for you to update us once a day on the progress of PTD? Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sam, I'm sure that everyone who's complaining is just upset that they can't play. What they don't realize is that IF YOU WANTED, YOU COULD JUST DECIDED NOT TO FIX IT. Also, don't give into their demands. You don't need to put out a new mystery gift, this isn't your fault. Thanks for doing everything that you have!

  82. THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR!!!!!!

  83. You're awesome, Sam! I know that this must be a real pain in the @!&, but its not your fault. GoDaddy is just stupid. I dont even like thier commercials(as of a few years ago, i dont have cable any more)! Ive always wanted to learn how to create my own flash game and i REALLY wanted to help you with artwork and other stuff, but im only 14 :(
    Hope this problem is over soon!

    PS: when i first started i put a fake e-mail. If there currently/will be an update where email is nessesary for extra stuff, could you allow us to change our accounts email? That would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I find it funny that there's so many people begging for mystery gifts. Sam's worked on this game for so long, working his butt off just so we can get a good working experience and a problem happens that is not his fault. Then, you all start begging that he should give you stuff cos it shut down. Look at the bigger picture. He gave you all the mystery gifts, and ultimately, the game to play. A problem happens out of his control and you get greedy.
    Sam, I hope that this problem gets solved as quick as possible, and wish you the best of luck throughout your future endevours.

  102. Also sam i was wondering if there were any plans to have the SaD coins buyable in GBP because being a uk player i dont really feel comfortable buying in a different currency.

  103. Sam Can you Make It Possible to obtain Togipi and his Evolvements but instead of leveling from fighting it gains levels from like Friendship or Something maybe just carry him around but for a decently long time then after first evolve it would need to get more Friendship xp then a moon stone or fire stone or what every stone. i kinda just thought it could be pretty awesome if you could some how do that.

    1. Togepi will be available in PTD2, as will all of the Generation II Pokemon.

    2. Friendship Xp. That's a pretty good idea.

  105. I love this game, and when I saw that the game is running again I immediately started. While I was playng, I lucked out with a shiny shellder, the one pokemon that I want most. However, when I tried to save, I couldn't connect, then it exited. After, I couldn't reenter, and I lost my shiny shellder. I thought that the game was running, but now I can't enter again! please help!
