MK Pokemon League
Digimon World 2
Still here... My ambition for programming after work has been non-existent, but it might be starting to come back finally! :)
Hey, all. I am 100% going to redo the site within the next 5 months! Yay! :) I finally have a large block of uninterrupted time coming up and I plan on using it for this!
FYI: Database will be down for the site on 10/24/2015 from 7 PM to 11 PM CST.
If any of you out there have Super Mario Maker, check out my levels! (Warning: They are pretty difficult) Gears of War - 0515-0000-0052-3C68 Gears of War 2 - BB88-0000-0078-A6B4 Scarejump! - 9015-0000-004D-D625 Blowser - 67D6-0000-0026-D144 The Great Chase! - DC2A-0000-0024-3808
Hey all. The site re-write is looking like it'll be around the October-November time frame. Too many work related things are taking over my free time for me to be able to focus on this. My only hope is that when I finally do get back to redoing the site, people will still come back to it! :)
Check out https://github.com/MetalKid/QueryFilter for a nifty, simply way to build complex queries with IQueryable<>, including Entity Framework! :)
Check out https://github.com/MetalKid/ClassyMapper for C# developers that want a way to auto map properties between different classes! It even runs faster than Automapper! :)
Update: I'm still working on the database. I had to design it in a way to support new data for new games easily (without altering data from previous games to fit) and support multiple languages. I'm going to release the database (SQL Server) as a download on the site so anyone can use it.
Just wanted to let people know that I finally have time to work on the site again! Yay! I have all the Pokemon data ready to be put into my database. Thus, I'm working on building the database now. Once that is done, I'll be able to start working on the actual site! :)
I am slowly working on the code for the new site. I haven't given up, but I've been coding so much at work that I don't want to look at any code when I get home. I'll keep pushing!
Oh, I also forgot to mention the website will support mobile devices, too! Including a Mobile friendly IV Calculator! :)
Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new version of the site. I have the general layout finished and am adding some bells and whistles to the design. The menu will work on all devices, including touch-only. You will have full control over the Theme with the ability to create, save, and even share your themes with others. There will be a built in chat on the site (Rooms, PMs, logs, etc), along with Chatango for those that want it. The site will have the most in-depth Pokedex search on the Internet! (Pokemon that learn these move(s) with this Ability that is Strong to Fire, Weak to Water, with min Def Base stat of 89 would be possible.) IV Calculator will get a big face lift and I'll make a YouTube video on how to use it. The Pokemon League will be built into this site with a map to explore and fight Gym Leaders, a tournament, Elite 4, and a Champion! There will be a gym for every type. The league system will also be able to support multiple leagues (not right away), so many people can create/run their own leagues! This is ambitious, but I'll have a lot of time to work on it over the next week or so!
Hey, guys! I decided to go with Serebii's Base Stat numbers for the IV Calculator. They are currently in. Let me know if any numbers don't come out right!
Hey all! My wife decided to go back to school to be a teacher, so my schedule ended up being even tighter than before. This probably means I won't be able to get a new site done before Pokemon X/Y. (A shame, too. The IV Calculator is going to get a sweet overhaul, making it usable offline and also auto calculating whenever you change a number.) The only good news I have is that I will update the current IV Calculator with all the new Pokemon numbers as soon as they become available (I will MAKE time for this update no matter what).
Hey guys! Just wanted to let you all know that this site hasn't been abandoned! I have been too busy as of late. I will be trying to do the site again next week when I finally have some free time. Hopefully, things will go well!
If you see this message, then www.metalkid.info is now on a new host! It costs half of my old host and is better in every way! It has unlimited space/bandwidth, I can have 25 databases up to 10 gig each, and I now have a test area that you can all go to see the latest build of the new site I'm building! It is at http://stage.metalkid.info Right now, most of the Digimon section works and also Other -> Theme has some nifty functionality. Feel free to investigate! :)
Take a look at the new header of the new site at http://s179701485.onlinehome.us/Index.html Let me know what you think via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message for me via Chatango.
Hello, everyone. I know I haven't been around much. I've been busy with work and a child. I wanted to let you know that I was able to get all the Digimon sprites put together for Digimon World 2. I don't have time to add them directly to the site, so I'm uploading them to http://www.metalkid.info/Digimon/Sprites.zip It is a 24 meg file with 4 side views of all the Digimon in the game!
While you are waiting for me to get my sorry ass in gear to redo site and give you interactive Pokemon League, you can start battling now at a forum hosted by players that frequent this site. It is located at http://z13.invisionfree.com/MK_League/index.php?act=idx Everything you do will be moved into the league when I get it finished. The league will automate a lot of tedious things and allow you to travel around on our own map! (Maybe even a few other cool features in the future...) I'm also working on creating my own chat system. I will have complete control over everything about it. I'll be able to look at the logs and give both Ban and Kick support. It'll be tied to your user name you use to log into this site with. Chatango will still be here, so don't worry about losing it! :)
Oh, I also forgot to mention that I plan on making a mobile version of this site, too! That means if you connect to the site with some sort of mobile device, the UI will change based upon that (more user friendly).
Hey all. I've gotten sucked into Dragon Quest Monster: Joker 2 and am working on the database for that. I'm pretty far. I will be changing the site slightly to make it so that each game is under a dropdown menu and that each game has its own menu items across the top. For example, instead of seeing News, Pokemon, Digimon World 2 when you are on the Pokemon site, you would see Menu, Pokedex, Calculators, etc.
Hey all! I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still working on the league. I may have just finished the last of the Administration part of the site in order to setup leagues! (Yes, the way everything is setup, this site can support multiple leagues running at the same time!) I will try and upload the changes tonight (CST) and try to get all the Towns, Gyms, and Badges setup. Then we'll see if we can get all the different routes entered from town to town. Once all the information has been entered, I can start working on trying to get the actual league pages up and running!
Plan Pokemon page should now have all the Moves and Items available to choose. Let me know if that is not the case!
I fixed the news page. Not really sure how it got overwritten and uploaded, but it is fixed now. I am currently working on the MK League database and pages. It is coming along faster than even I had hoped.
You can now Plan your Pokemon under Pokemon -> My Data -> Plan Pokemon! You can keep a Planned version and then the Actual version, allowing you to design your Pokemon up-front (i.e. define the EVs you want) and then you can track your progress against it. The MK Pokemon League will utilize the data you enter on this page for defining your teams. On the List Pokemon page, you can click on Track EVs to track your EVs as you fight to make sure you know your exact total.
I also updated the Ability names and was able to create the Abilities page that lists all the abilities, their description, and the Pokemon that have them.
Finally got the names of the various Moves updated.
I added Base Experience and Max Experience of all Pokemon to the Pokemon - Charts - Experience page.
Just wanted to let you know I applied two fixes/enhancements based on input people gave thru the Other - Suggestions/Bugs page. First, I fixed the issue on the IV Calculator where it was not saving the Ability. Second, I added the ability to filter for only the last evolutions of Pokemon on the Pokedex page.
I've been quite busy as of late (And watching too much Stargate SG1). I wanted to get the league portion of the site up and running, but I have to overcome a big hurdle, first. This site's database runs off the data from Veekun's GIT repository. Since the first time I imported it, Veekun has changed the structure of his entire database. I now have to re-code my importer in order to account for his new structure. That will take me days. I currently have some data that is in English and Japanese, so I have to fix that. There is so much I can do to improve this site, so I hope I can get enough ambition to get past this issue soon!
Need to visit the old site? You still can if you go to
. I am currently working on remaking the Mass IV calculator and the Damage calculator. Both will end up being superior to the old one.
Welcome to the new site! I hope you enjoy it! If you have any suggestions for improvements, please visit the
