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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

    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?

    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.

    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!

    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?

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