I knew it was a fake simply b/c you cannot allow that many colors to be present in the game. You can 'fake' a 5th color but this can only be done by superimposing the background through photoshopped portraits :) We could possibly implement this today :)

Kongming’s Archives sure has become a massive beast. It still has code lurking about in its bowels from the likes of 2001–2003. Although I’ve managed to update large portions of the site to use friendlier modern coding techniques (and to better take advantage of knowledge I’ve gained over the years) I still run into snags based on those ancient roots.

For a few months now I’ve wanted to post updates to the site but some strange unknown bug was preventing me from retrieving new updates from the forum for display on the site. I finally had to fix it in order to get things back on track. Rather than patch things up I totally re-wrote the back-end that downloads updates from Scholars of Shen Zhou. It sure is sad when it is easier to write something again from the ground up rather than simply fine-tune it.

Hopefully this is a good step toward making Kongming’s Archives easier to work with again. :)

And I totally forgot about it this year until I saw someone mentioning it in the forum at the last moment...

I was looking forward to a full night's sleep. Nope! I was up until 3 AM working on this. And now I'm up late again trying to fix the update system for Kongming's Archives so I can start updating the site again.

This occurs to me every single time I play a new Pokémon game. :)

What a terrible thought! :shock:
Have I done more than two? :lol:

Lady Wu wrote:It would be totally amazing, though, if James really figured out how to import full-colour portraits into DoaE...

On one hand it would be totally awesome.
On the other I would just cry... because I'd be tempted to go back and do more work on my mods... :cry:

It would be totally amazing, though, if James really figured out how to import full-colour portraits into DoaE...

This is made so much better by the fact DoaE was a Pokemon prototype in many ways.

Yeah, once I realized it was April Fool's I headed straight over here.

My favorite, by far, is still that time we deposed James and engulfed the forum in a two week roleplay.
