You Betta' be Ready for This!

Posted by The TTR Team on May 17, 2014 02:00 PM


I'm telling you, we just can't contain our excitement over here. You have no idea how big today is. Not only is it the very special birthday of a certain developer... (Don't ask me to name names, because I will absolutely not tell you. I have full respect for the privacy and well-being of our loyal team members.)
(But for the record, it's Shockley.)

...But, today is also a date we have all been waiting for over a month for, and some even longer than that: The Beta Release Date Announcement!



You're going to want to buckle up for this post, because it is a doozy. We're talking college thesis material here. You know what that means, though - we're going to have to use a lot of BOLD and ITALICS to keep your attention. Don't you even deny it -- We know you only skimmed over that one post. To fix that, by law(bots), you're required to read every single paragraph of this one. The happiness of your Saturday could depend on it.

Do you remember how we told you that the release notes would be the size of a blog post? It turns out that was an exaggeration - in the opposite way! These release notes are the size of MOUNTAINS, I tell you, with SKYSCRAPERS on top! Yeah, yeah. You just want to see them. Fine. I didn't want to type more anyway. Hrmph. Looks like I have to though, because right below this paragraph, we're glad to finally present the First Release Notes of Beta!

May 17, 2014 [ttr-beta-v1.0.0]

Maintenance
Major Update: The loading system has been completely rewritten!
Back in November, we put together a newly reworked and optimized loading system. Unhappy with our previous work, we went back and redid it one more time to be faster and more reliable, as well as an improved format.
* Sent out street sweepers to clear out the weird patterns on streets.
• In-game kick messages now show a reason.
Major Update: Backend changes!
* Migrate to new servers in preparation for the public launch. We will be tweaking and updating these servers throughout Beta, so please bear with us when we have to bring them down for maintenance!
• The update system is now completely automated so that districts can be spun up in a flash.
• Implement the "Queue" system!
To keep the servers from being constantly pounded on, occasionally you may have to wait in a queue for a few seconds before logging in. This will make sure that everyone can have a good time playing and give us proper time to launch a new district when there is high load. Give us some feedback on what you think!
* The Launcher has been updated to be a bit more user-friendly, as well as implement better patching.

• Fix a couple of issues relating to the sound effect library.
• Major code cleanup all-around.

Tweaks:
• You can no longer teleport to a friend in a full district once a certain limit of toons has been reached.
This is to encourage people to spread out among other districts and put an end to "parkers", rather than crowding into one massive district.
* Added in an unused animation for the Cog's reaction to a Fire Hose.
• Cogs now sway back and forth when lured to show that they are stunned.
• Added sound effects for Schmooze and Half Windsor attacks.

Features:
The Cogs have invaded Toontown!
• Every Toon HQ all over Toontown is now offering ToonTasks!
Because of the lack of HQs in this build, you can currently only progress up to Daisy Gardens.
* Goofy's Gag Shop is stocked up and open for business!
• The Toon Council now sends you a complementary whisper to let you know when your name is approved.
• The Cogs have stepped up their efforts, and their master plan has begun. The streets are being bombarded with random Invasions and Cog Buildings!
• Tutorial Tom has opened up his Toontorial to new toons from far and wide to learn about Cogs and how to handle them. Be sure to stop by!
• You can now earn Beta Keys to give to friends through random in-game ToonTasks! They are a bit rare to get right now, so keep your eyes peeled!
• And many, many other things that we can't even count!


Wait, wait wait. Hang on. What was that last one?
Let me flip through my notes, that can't be right... Yes, random in-game ToonTask... Beta Keys... Huh. Yep, that's what it says. You and I both heard it right, folks -- You can now earn Beta Keys to give to friends through ToonTasks!

Oh, but that's not all. It looks like that tomorrow marks the start of our very own Beta Key Giveaways right here on the website! We'll kick off tomorrow by handing out those 100 promised stream keys to a few of the lucky watchers of the election, as well as announce what is in store for the rest of the contests! This is going to be an exciting week, let me tell you.

Perhaps the most exciting part of this week, however, is the part you've all been waiting for. In fact, as you are reading this paragraph I guarantee you haven't read the rest because you just skipped down to the bottom of the page. That's why I'm not even going to bold it. That'll show 'em!

The release date for Toontown Rewritten Beta, packed with all of the content listed above, is in just about...

NOW!

Was that a typo to? No, it couldn't be. You heard it just as well as I. Toontown Rewritten Beta starts TODAY! (Err, okay. So maybe I did bold it.)

All Beta Testers can head over to the big red "PLAY" button and download the new-and-improved launcher to let their journey begin. If you were an Alpha Tester, you've already signed up for Beta! All you have to do is log in. Note that toons have been wiped due to all of the new changes that we've made, though. At the end of Beta, only toon stats will be wiped - not the toons themselves. The toons you make now should be "Rewritten" forever.

Whew! That post really was a doozy. I'm having a hard time processing everything that just happened. Release notes, key tasks, key giveaways, and the release of beta? I told you we were excited to write the post - and that was certainly no exaggeration!

Sorry!

Chill said on May 17, 2014 03:25 PM
You have already improved this game exponentially, and I figure this just from reading the updates, for I haven't even played yet! I can tell Toontown Rewritten is going to be absolutely brilliant.

Princess Furball said on May 17, 2014 03:26 PM
Words do not describe how excited I am.

Quack said on May 17, 2014 03:38 PM
Now that's something to quack about :) I don't know what I am more excited about the chance to possibly with a Beta Key this week, OR the fact that the TTR team made it so that you can't TP to a toon in a full district :D I've always been the type of duck to waddle around other districts, never ever wanting to be in River or Summit. My life's motto has always been swim in your own pond and you'll find your own way is always better than that taken by others. QUACK!

Princess Peaches Feathertoes said on May 17, 2014 03:40 PM
My whole toon family is so excited! We love Toontown and have missed it so much!!!

Oh my goodness, first of all Happy Birthday Shockley! Secondly, that was ALOT of release notes. Thirdly, wow. You can earn beta keys through toontaks? Fourthly, I did not see that coming. Everyone thought that releasing "today" was the wackiest thing they'd ever expect. Beta keys aren't important for me now, I just need to know how to calm down from all this excitement!!!

Sally said on May 17, 2014 03:51 PM
I can not wait :D

Blue Bonnet said on May 17, 2014 03:54 PM
All I can say is, "Toons of the world UNITE!" Well, also, "Happy Birthday, Shockley!" We are all so very excited right now. You guys are the best.

TylurDaWuffy said on May 17, 2014 06:56 PM
Iv been a ToonTown fan almost since the beginning, hearing about the shut down recently was such a let down.. But this is almost to exciting! so exciting i can't even hold my pies without shaking! Congrats on those who get to beta test! Will be looking forward to it all hopefully soon!

Averycooper said on May 17, 2014 06:56 PM
I watched the whole election, but I wasn't signed into youtube...bummer, but maybe I'll still get a key. Good luck to all, and everyone, be ready for awesomeness. :)

Blue Benny said on May 17, 2014 07:08 PM
Awesome! Just wish I had friends already in the beta so I can play!

Good ol' Ricky Dynoboom (Dynaboom) said on May 17, 2014 07:10 PM
THIS IS AWESOME! Hahahahaha... Curious to see how the new name approval, animations, and loading system work. Rewritten forever, huh? Interesting.

Meow Mitten said on May 17, 2014 07:30 PM
Ooo!!! I cannot believe Beta already started! A little disappointed about the Alphas giving away most of the keys to their friends. :/ Don't really know any Alphas that would willingly do a toon task and give me a key. Hope they do some more giveaway.

Lady Violet said on May 17, 2014 07:36 PM
Oh my goodness! I am super duper excited! I so badly want to become a part of this community! :D

El jefe said on May 17, 2014 07:42 PM
I've been checking every day to see my name as the winner of a key. Hopefully that day will come soon.

Flippernoodle said on May 17, 2014 07:51 PM
My word, the start of beta and key give-a-ways? A good day in toon-history

Dark Chocolate Chip said on May 17, 2014 07:53 PM
Awesome guys! The TTR team really has progressed rather fast and we, the players, will enjoy toontown again! Let's get all those evil cogs!

Bismouth said on May 17, 2014 08:06 PM
I'm so happy to hear things about beta! Keep up the good work!

Z.Z. said on May 17, 2014 08:42 PM
I want to begin by saying. Bravo. *Insert Claps* You have released Beta in a timely manner which is great! I also want to say, Happy Birthday Shockley. Today is my birthday too! Isn't that cool?

Little Fancy Fuzzy Nugget said on May 17, 2014 09:23 PM
Waiting to be able to get back into the excitement of Toontown. It was the best game online ever and will be again very soon. Can't wait. I would Love to have a Beta key to join the fun and help anyway I can. Toons of the world UNITE!!!

Maybe there are benefits of staying awake to watch the elections.... Never mind! Hopefully I can get my hands on a Beta Key!

I have the same birthday as Shockley?! I can't wait to see the new improvements! I wonder if Slate has uploaded a new stream video to showcase all these lovely new things..

Oh my gosh I am pumped for the release of beta. I would love if I got a beta key and keep on working guys. Also happy B-Day Shockley!

ChaoticCanvas said on May 18, 2014 12:29 PM
Yay! I been reading these everyday and am excited to witness Beta! Even if I do not get a key, I will wait anxiously for the public release! Great job, team!

Little Rosie Twinkletoon said on May 18, 2014 12:29 PM
Oh my goodness great work!

Sheriff Peaches Crunchenfish said on May 18, 2014 12:30 PM
You know what I'd really like to see in the game? Not a new boss or headquarters, though that would be a nice touch. I'd like to see a building, statue, or structure honoring the developers of this game and what they've done.

Caw Tastrophe said on May 18, 2014 12:38 PM
Wow! Me and my cousin used to love to play Toontown! We will have our favorite moments relived! Even better, more moments! And awesomer, more better moments! Thank you guys! Can you especially thank Slate for her awesome livestreams?

Little Trixie Pickleberry said on May 18, 2014 12:50 PM
Awesome! Happy Birthday Shockley! And thanks so much Toontown Rewritten for all you have done!

Rosebud said on May 18, 2014 12:52 PM
Oooh! My friends and I CAN'T wait for the beta keys! We think we might actually get one this time! I've been watching the blog-post for a while... It sounds like the TTR team has done a great job! Keep up the good work! :)

Wacky Weaselchomp said on May 18, 2014 12:57 PM
I can not wait! As a streamer and long toontown fan, I have been following this site religiously and hoping to get a key! This will be amazing and I will spend my time trying to help DEVs and making sure it is as great as it always was

Kat said on May 18, 2014 01:20 PM
When will Toontown Rewritten be open to the public? Because I doubt I would get a beta or alpha key.

This is wonderful! Cannot wait to play!!!

Loud Thunderchomp said on May 18, 2014 06:48 PM
( Skips to bottom, reads NOW, reads play, reads today, scrolls to play, scrolls to register, sees alpha key message ) No-ooo! ..But by skipping to the bottom, I read you're using some of the phase files I really wanted in game for their cool features, this is getting even better.

Kimchee said on May 21, 2014 04:40 PM
Woot!!!
