PSA: Modding Confirmed Broken

Just a quick post for those of you who may end up here seeking help with POW's modding functionality... yeah it doesn't appear to be working. I've spent the past few hours now trying to figure out what's going on with it.

It's not just the latest version, but older versions as well, which makes me think the problem has something to do with a recent flash update, or browser update in how it handles its local security (flash is notoriously insecure, after all).

It will work, however, if you play the flash directly within the flash player instead of through the browser.

I don't have any leads as to what the problem is exactly, so most likely I would just need to rewrite that whole system using some other technique, which may as well be part of the v5 code rewrite.

I'm sure many of you have been wondering when v5 is expected, but I don't have any good news to share on that. Life has taken me off course from creative developments these past few months, but I expect to return to POW sooner or later for another wave of lewd fun n' progress.

  1. Yeah TR there was a recent flash player updated that changed how the data was stored.

  2. Still gonna wait faithfully for my Pokéwaifu,Umbreon.

    What kind of mods we talking 'bout, fam? Quest mods? Are we gonna go save the Pokémon from the Pokémeri Dominion? Are there gonna be skimpy armors and clothes? Are we getting new companions?! Fully voiced companions?! Or these just recolours of Pokémon?

    1. You're blowing this way out of proportion, TR doesn't have the time and resources to do a majority of what you just said.

  3. Finally! I knew I wasn't going insane! Well, kinda. Anyway, modding is so fun, bummer it frecked up. I spent hours trying to figure out what the problem was, but nothing seems to suffice. By the way, love your work, Terra. Of course life has it's ups and downs, but that's why you should continue - So we can fap to Pokémon. If that's not a good enough reason to continue, then I don't know what else to tell you, or anyone else for that matter.

  4. what do you mean "directly in the flash player?" I never remember seeing any standalone player when I downloaded Flash.

    1. Google "play swf file without browser" for some info on that. It'll require an additional install, as the default flash install is merely the browser plugin. I just have it because it comes with the flash developer software suite.

      Delete
  5. Oh, that's because they updated the browser version to only allow files to be played from trusted folders. Only affects local files iirc.

  6. Boss, hope you're doing well. Life happens, but you're also a large part of my (and others') lives ;) Haha, by the way bud, what happened to X-Ray?

  9. I'm really anxious for v5 to be release, but I've got two questions:

    1. If Ninetales is in v5 which version of her are you using? Are you using the fire version, Ice version(Sun and moon... sorry spoilers), or an option to change its appearance at free will?

    2. Is Lucario going to make an appearance in the breeding category? What I mean is, will we be able to fuck Lucario's brains out or are you still thinking about it? Personally, I think making Lucario fuckably is an awesome idea

    1. Judging by the live stream he did quite some time ago he's going with the Fire Type Ninetales and not Alolan, but seeing as she isn't officially released anything is subject to change.

      Delete
    2. I see... Well I had an idea for her alolan form. What if, when you pick Ninetales, you select her and there was on option to pick either the original or alolan?

    3. That's really not necessary, knowing how much of a cunt flash player is I feel it'd be so much more than just a retexture and a switch.

      Delete
    4. I know terra said something about that in the past, when i made a comment about having a way to switch between shiny and non shiny.

      Delete
    5. do you remember what terra said?

      Delete
    6. What i remember is him saying that if he did something to allow for you to Swap between color schemes mid animation, for some reason whatever programs he's using to script it would cause massive unwanted amounts of lag, so he would have to add shiny versions as completely separate character selections.

      Delete
    7. Fire version of ninetales (though I think the ice version is pretty nice looking)

      As for Lucario... probably not for breeder mode no, but I have poked around with a vaginal *scene* a bit.

      I can't change the color palettes for shiny. That only works on very simple graphics, not shaded ones.... unless I brute force attempted it, but that would take forever to do. At least, that's what I have figured out with my current skill in flash and AS3. If an expert knew otherwise, I'm all earholes!

      Delete
    8. Glad to know you're still working on this. I imagine many people around here are having a serious case of blue balls right now.

      Delete
    9. I'm proficient in AS3. Once it goes open source I could easily add a system for shinies or whatever the hell else color-schemes you wanted for pokemon using color transforms and coding. It's actually quite simple.

  10. hey terra. do you have some new idea for Pow or other project?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Will this project be progressing anytime in the near future?

    ReplyDelete
  12. So is this project dead?

    1. No, terra should still be working on this but is either he's/she's having other stuff in his/her life that may be delaying him/her, or this project takes so much effort its taking way to long.

  13. you know... sometimes pressing x can lead to surprises during a cowgirl session ;)

    1. We know, 'x' will show us an x-ray vision of the eevee's. However, I believe the x-ray still needs adjusting because it disappears on some speeds during the sex and when cum in them.

    2. I'm fairly sure Terra "dropped" this, but left it in the game in the meantime before coming back to it. The graphics for it are fairly lackluster, it has some issues, and they scrubbed all info about it from within the game.
      Prior it actually prompted you in the pokedex that this was an option.

  14. Terra can you just say hi, so we know your still alive?

    1. You guys really dont get it huh? he wont work on this sh1t anymore

      Delete
    2. He already said waaaay back that this was something in his spare time, he has also said he really doesn't have the urge / motivation at the time to go and work on it, also do not forget, Terra is by no means a professional artist, and most times he has relied on getting commissions done for the majority of this project, and in order to get these animations you have to get multiple and i do mean several multiples of the same image with slight position variants and changes and then he needs to put those through whatever program he uses, so that he can use all those images and connect them all as an animation (Simple way to put it, take a GIF use gif frame extractor to see how many frames it has then load all of those into VTF edit which will put them, all back together as one solid animated image, relatively same logic applies here.)

      Plus Terra last year has spent a very large amount of time solely working on this, that it has exhausted him to the point of boredom.

      i know that feeling myself cause it would be like me playing 1 video games from the 80 games i have for like 3 weeks straight then i get sick of it for the rest of the year.

      Also Terra is learning new coding languages for scripting and animating and odds are he may need to redo this project from the ground up, thats to be determined.

      Plus he also recently said that he was working on an additional Lucario scene in the background during his time away.

      Also its quite common for him to take a year away from it, then bring a ton of work into it out of nowhere.

  15. he might as well tell us he is done with this then so we know for sure!

  16. It's okay, Terra, I still love you. I've had some amazing fap sessions due to your great animations, and for that, I thank you. I wish you the best wherever you are now, regardless of your choice to continue or stop production of POW. I say this not with a loss of hope or impatience, but with support and faith. You've touched lives, (or penises... figuratively) and that means something.

  26. Hiya, is there a SFW File Player you can recommend, when I try to use the Direct Link or try to go full screen, it won't play and just download that file instead of playing, and when I try to open it, it just downloads a second copy of it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you can always download Swiff player, it does the same thing to me as well, But the Swiff player doesn't seem to allow you to choose anything, it almost seems like the actual File for the flash may or may not be broken / corrupted as this time.
