PR2 v161.1: Happy Turkey!

26th November 2020, 5:49 AM


PR2 v161: Happy Turkey!

Surprise! This update provides some small bug fixes and a new set.

Changes/Additions
- The Turkey Set is now available in-game! Get it by logging into your PR2 account between now and Sunday. You can get the epic upgrades by playing Happy Thanksgiving!!! by Rage Runner (Level ID: 2585329). Thanks for drawing, @~JBG~!

Fixes
- Minimum rank requirement checks on levels now respond to rank tokens being used/un-used. Thanks for the report, @Master Raiden!
- Play/cancel menus now close if access conditions change while the player is in a slot. Previously, changing a hat to one that wasn't allowed while waiting in a level slot would apply the cover, but wouldn't close the course menu. Thanks for the report, @Master Raiden!
- Saved accounts now save as intended. Previously, if the HTTP server responded to a login request before the socket server, the account wouldn't save.



This year hasn't been easy for any of us, and I know that there probably isn't a whole lot for which to be thankful (relatively speaking). I just want to say how thankful I am that all of you are still here after all of these years. Your support means the world to me. I'm so happy to be a part of this community. I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving! Here's hoping for a good conclusion to 2020 and a far better 2021!!

PR2 v161: Level of Customization

23rd November 2020, 9:39 PM


PR2 v161: Level of Customization

This update contains a bunch of new features, a new song, a new part, and some bug fixes.

Changes/Additions
- There are now some tooltips on the account tab. When mousing over the "?"s or the loadouts button, there will be tooltips that tell you more about them.
- All parts have been added to the part popups. This includes the artifact, Fred, and the very invisible set.
- The hat attack countdown is now 15 seconds. We got some great feedback after v160 that 5 seconds was too short a time for the countdown. Additionally, you'll now instantly finish if you're the last player in the game with the hats.
- New loadouts! You now have 10 loadouts. Thanks to @bazooka and @M!nt for suggesting this!
- New part! The blobfish head is now available to be won at Underwater World by Odin0030. Thanks for @~JBG~ for suggesting and drawing this!
- New song! Blizzard! by Majicke (aka @Lunanova) is now available in-game!
- You can now remember more than one account login at a time. Keep track of your many accounts with ease. This has the fringe benefit of getting around the tightening browser restrictions on cookies; however, it much more importantly gets rid of that icky "enter your password to log out" popup. Thanks to @Addy for the suggestion!
- You can now choose which hats to allow in your levels. Level creators of olde rejoice at not needing to make another clunky hat remover ever again. Thanks to @Mystery for the suggestion!

Fixes
- Server owners now have their own designation on the player popup. Previously, they showed as admins. Thanks for helping me test this, @AlphaZ!
- Night Shade by Goliathe is a bit louder now. A few people noticed that it was a tad quiet.
- Objective times now display properly when a player disconnects. Thanks to @Ashley766 for the report!
- The options popup now works as intended. Hooray for flash not throwing a tantrum and crashing the entire game if it doesn't have permission to do what it wants to do. Thanks to the multiple people who reported this over the years!

Here's the Motley Monday episode for this update!

Motley Monday: Spooky Bounce

6th October 2020, 3:18 AM





It only took me two years! 🎉

There's a poll mentioned in the video, asking which you'd like me to devote more of my energy (reviving Creation or updating PR2). Keep in mind, it's not necessarily an either/or situation, it's simply asking to which one I should devote more of my energy. The results will not guarantee/cause action or inaction on my part -- again, it's purely to give me an idea of how the community feels.

Private Servers

4th August 2020, 12:57 AM


I just made some programmatical changes to how PR2 handles adding new, updating the expiration time of existing, and expiring old private servers. It should hopefully all work a whole lot better than before. Feel free to snoop around in the changes if you're so inclined.

Side note: this was pull request/issue #666. That makes me think something will go wrong. Oh well.

XBL Gamertag Gone

28th July 2020, 8:55 PM


Due to a change in the forum software I use for this site, the XBL Gamertag field is gone from profiles. I plan to find a way to add this back (hopefully in an intuitive fashion), but for now, it's gone.

Soundcloud BBCode

24th July 2020, 1:36 AM


You can now embed tracks/sets from Soundcloud! The usage is:

Code:
[soundcloud]your soundcloud link here[/soundcloud]

So, if I said:

Code:
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/joywave/obsession[/soundcloud]

I would get:



Same goes for sets! This:

Code:
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/jonathan-mack-lofi/sets/jonathan-tracks[/soundcloud]

Would give me this:



You can link to pretty much any type of Soundcloud media element with this tag. As always, you are responsible for making sure the content you post is appropriate (the village rules apply to any content posted from external sources).

Happy sharing and happy listening! Smile

Small PR2 Fixes

16th July 2020, 9:35 AM


A few things have been fixed/changed on PR2 in the past couple of weeks.

  • Orbital Trance and We Are Loud have been converted to their higher-quality versions. Thanks to @Minimania and @IHaveDaCowboyz for letting me know these exist!
  • EXP prize awards no longer award way more than they're supposed to award. 2.5M EXP apparently was equivalent to 12.1B. Shout out to @AspectZero, @__, and @Prince Ande for being patient while this one was debugged.
  • The artifact hint no longer breaks when special characters are in the title or username. 🎉
  • The threshold for level backups has been decreased. Previously, only levels not saved within the past two weeks would be backed up. That has been lowered to a day. Thanks to @Prince Ande for reporting an issue that led to this change!
As always, if you find any other bugs, please let me know by posting in the Bugs and Suggestions forum. Thanks!

VPN/proxy detection problems

24th June 2020, 6:18 AM


It's come to my attention that there have been some issues with the VPN/proxy check falsely flagging some users. I'm working on some code that I believe will fix it (for the most part-- nothing of this nature is perfect) and it should be done tonight.

For now, if you can't log in, please post in Contact a Mod so we can whitelist your IP address.
