You may have noticed than Diamond is running slower than normal (Platinum will as well after restart), I will explain the reason of this in this thread.

Last days, after new year, servers have been crashing too often, Diamond specially have suffered 3 crashes in 3 days, now crashes are expected and almost always fixable, but the last crashes have been due to a really difficult problem to find; memory corruption. The fix to this issue may be easy but finding it is almost impossible without the assistance of external tools, servers are now running in a special enviroment that will help to find the origin of the memory corruption so I can fix it, sadly this enviroment also makes everything run slower (the average slowdown of the instrumented program is ~2x) this was the best tool I could find and with the least impact in performance, other tools have an even worse slowdown:



Sadly I will have to run servers in this enviroment till I can find the reason of the corruption (I need it to crash in order to find the problem lol).

I hope you can understand and sorry for the inconveniences.


This year there are two missions, both are optional, you don't need to finish one to take the other. Anyway is highly adviced to take both.
First mission is to help the Elves to record their Christmas CD.
Second mission is to participate in the Snowball war.


Christmas CD

You need to record 10 songs in total, the songs are splitted in few parts to make it easier, you only have to repeat the pattern and then hit the record button.
You can score up to 100 points per song this means if you record every song 100% correctly you will get 1000 points in total.
You have 10 tries per SONG, each failed try will take 10 points from the song score, this means you can even get 0 points per song.
Incase you complete a song or wasted all your tries, we will move to the next song.
You can see the pattern if you click the 'Listen' button, once you start recording you cannot see the pattern anymore.

Rewards and requeriments will be announced later




Additionally, you can now send gift to your friends using the command "!gift friend_name", it has a cost of 15 points.
Gifts will be openable the same day as the reward from the event!

Hi guys! There's christmas lottery running. This year tickets are paid, each one costs 10k. Lottery will be drawn in Monday 17/12/2018 or until all of the tickets get sold.
You can get max 2 tickets with only 1 character of level 40 or higher.







I have noticed that some rewards have fake informations, so until it gets fixed I put the real info here:
Reward #124 = Elder Charizard, level 130
Reward #164 = Ash Greninja, level 80
Reward #183 = Morelull, level 10
Reward #184 = Crabrawler, level 10
This monday Dec 10, 2018 we will moving our servers back to Europe, during this time gameservers, website and forum will be offline, the process can take up to 18 hours.
EUR #1 proxy will be removed, since the servers will be located on the same server is pointless to keep the proxy.

Common problems during the migration:
- DNS propagation takes time to reflect the changes, we will implement strategies to reduce this, but you may aswell try:

[QUOTE]ipconfig /flushdns[/QUOTE]

if you are having troubles reaching our hosts.

There will be a small client update after the migration.

Of course we will restore wasted premium/tickets time.


EDIT

With this update you most likely will "lose" your hotkeys, so becareful at your first login!
Anyway if you want to prevent this or recover your hotkeys, you can do the following:

- CLOSE the client, this should be done with the client CLOSED!
- Go to the next directory -> C:\Users\\padclient
- Open: config.otml with a text editor
- Find and replace (all) "ls.padventures.org" replace with "game.padventures.org"
- Save the file and you are ready!

-Addon of course must be a reference to Christmas and it can not contain anything erotic,
-Drawing or idea can not be copied from the internet, we count on the players imagination,
-Drawing can not contain too many tiny details, because in the game they will be invisible, especially when the pokemon is small,
