President Flippy's Wild Line

Posted by Sir Max on July 5, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Day 1. In the PlayLine.
Today marks the first steps of my journey into the dreaded PlayLine. As a Toon Trooper, the certificate crumpled up in the back of my closet somewhere says that it is my duty to ensure that everything in Toontown is in tip top shape. Based on some strongly-worded essays sent to my house (I swear I didn't cry.) and a few erase-threats here and there (Alright, so I did cry. It was only 3 hours. 7 hours tops.) I have decided (More so forced, as one of the erase-notes threatens.) to head out to the outskirts of Toontown and try out the PlayLine for myself.

Day 4. In the PlayLine.
It has been three days since my adventure began, and I only have 207 seconds left until I can enter! No -- that's hours. Hrmph. A bit of a long wait to enter for a three hour tour, but hey: It's Toontown! Being a citizen of the town, I can say it's worth the wait. Just need to sit here. Alone. With nothing to do. It will be worth it. Heh, ha!

Day 14. In the PlayLine.
I am running low on food and water. In fact, I ran out 17 days ago. Make that 37. Where are the Toons, anyway? There is absolutely nothing here except a giant screen that tells me I have 156 hours left. Are there others like me? Where are they? Is this even a line? I'm beginning to wonder if this means 156 hours left until I can enter, or 156 hours left before my sanity is lost. I want to get off President Flippy's Wild Line.

Day 647. In the PlayLine.
Three years have passed. I do not know who I am, nor where I am. Where does this line lead to? My past self entered this line for a reason, one that I do not know. I have to continue. There are no exits in the room. I tried talking to a rock next to me. Then I tried eating him. He turned into an octopus and swam away into the sky. I don't like octopus. The screen reads that I have 2 hours left. It's all almost over. I'm soon to be reaching enlightenment. I'm going to reach the end of the PlayLine.

Day 973. In the PlayLine.
I have two minutes remaining until the door opens. This is it. This is finally it! THIS is the day, that I, Sir Max, will finally COMPLETE the PlayLine! The door is opening. The timer is up. I am stepping through the door into brightness. It's finally here! I am FINALLY ENTERING... Another... A-Another... Line... Haha. ha. HAhah. eheh. Ha.
The screen reads that I have 207 hours remaining. Haha! Ah, ahaha. Haha. Hah ha I'shafododo itma sdhaI'mfaljssorrydhfkJLG ALHASFJGASN DFLASJKHRGAOJLHNN;KLFGBAGJRGHAL FVL AGRAKHBA

Conclusion. Out of the PlayLine.
I finally know how you Toons feel. Without any doubt, those were the most grueling 56 minutes of my entire life. No longer will we have to face the suffering and oppression that this line has put upon us! Today, Toons, is the day that we will finally cross that line! We will eliminate the banners, rip the entrances, and dismantle the oppressors! WE WILL-- Oh, hang on. Just got a little message here. Turns out we are absolutely not allowed to do that.

I'll tell you what we can do, though: Extend the slots! Improve the PlayLine! Make it fair to all! From this day forward, there are now a total of 45 slots released in the PlayTime groupings, as well as 45 Toons let in through the PlayLine in each batch. Finally, rather than being released at 2:00PM Toontown Time every day, new PlayTime groups will be released every three hours to ensure that all timezones get a fair chance of grabbing a time. Even the Easterners.

We've heard your feedback, and we're always working to improve the Semi-Open Beta system for your enjoyment, as well as keeping it fair for everyone. Make sure to keep telling us what we're doing wrong! (And what we're doing right, too. Those are always cool.) If you keep your feedback to yourself, we'll never know what we can do better! I've gotten word that there are quite a lot of server-related updates coming on the way as well...

Keep your eyes peeled, and I'll see you tomorrow for Day Three of our Summer Celebration Update!

July 5, 2014 [ttr-beta-v1.3.2]

• Various server stability enhancements.
• Add 800 new words to the Whitelist. Thanks for the suggestions!
• Custom resources now only loads textures and sounds to prevent cheating by editing/removing models.
• Disable Experimental anti-aliasing by default due to graphics card incompatibilities. For those who want to continue helping us test out this experimental feature, you can turn it on again by modifying "settings.json" in your Toontown Rewritten folder.

• General PlayLine stability improvements.
• PlayTime and PlayLine slots have been increased to 45 Toons.
• PlayTime slots are now released every 3 hours, rather than every 24 hours. If you miss one set, wait 3 hours and grab another!

I knew you guys would keep getting better just for all of us toons! Thank You!

TrooperDog said on July 5, 2014 at 2:10 PM
This is super satisfying. Great job! I love when they listen to us!

Optimus Prime said on July 5, 2014 at 2:10 PM
Good job TTR! Now that there will be a less crowded line for toons to get into the TTR world. And more play time for all of us. THANK YOU once again for bringing back Toontown into the world

Drops of Jupiter said on July 5, 2014 at 2:11 PM
YES!!!!!!!!! This is great, this means I can get a slot much more easily in the UK! Thanks guys!!

Ooowoo said on July 5, 2014 at 2:17 PM
I'm glad you let Flippy test the playline. I didn't use the playline but I had heard of people waiting 1000+ hours. Hope this fixes the consistently long wait times. P.S. Are there more key tasks coming soon?

Pearl said on July 5, 2014 at 2:17 PM
Squee! I got a Playtime! A very good one too! (Does the Toontown Victory Dance) Thanks Sir Max! :D

Saiko said on July 5, 2014 at 2:18 PM
More slots! WOOT! Less wait time! Toontown, thanks for yet another incredible update! The more PlayTime the better!

Crazy said on July 5, 2014 at 2:23 PM
Wow! This is awesome! I only had 10 hours to go, but then as soon as this update was announced, it dropped down to 5!

Smarty Dog Pants said on July 5, 2014 at 2:23 PM
Wow! Now more toons can defeat those nasty cogs! The cogs stand no chance agianst our laughter!

nice bear said on July 5, 2014 at 2:27 PM
thanks TTR team. now we can get more toons in the game! :)

Jumblefuddy said on July 5, 2014 at 2:30 PM
Thanks so much for this adjustment! I really appreciate the fair opportunity for all toons to participate in open beta! :D

Lady Melody McToon said on July 5, 2014 at 2:30 PM
Great news about the scheduled playtime! Thx for making it a bit easier for us "Easterners" because in my time 2PM PST is 11PM! Btw, just managed to schedule my second time playing TTR :-D See you in a week! ;-)

RainyNess said on July 5, 2014 at 2:32 PM
I'm excited for the new update! But, I also think you guys should higher the amount of time you have untill everyone cuts you in line- like if ur internet crashes it usually takes about 20 min to get back on or so. Thanks!

Super Lollipop said on July 5, 2014 at 2:33 PM
Great Job TTR Staff on the 45 toon slots! The more kids are playing, the better the game gets!

Jacob said on July 5, 2014 at 2:52 PM
Just got my first play slot instead of waiting 3 days in the waiting line :D Thanks sooo much for a brilliant update :)

Funnybubble said on July 5, 2014 at 3:09 PM
Thank you SOOOOOOO much for making the playline time wait shorter, and for releasing playtimes every three hours! It makes things soooooooooooo much easier, and I can grab a playtime at a good time when I'm available! Thanks!

Miss Coconut Purpleswirl said on July 5, 2014 at 3:32 PM
Oh wow! I never get to schedule a time slot, because I'm always to late! I'm glad you have made it more fair. I love every single little thing you do to fix TTR, it just means you're getting closer and closer! You guys make my day!

Split Purr Sonality said on July 5, 2014 at 3:52 PM
Great news for us, toons and I really appreciate you guys listening to us. I have a few suggestions that I already believe you guys are somewhat working on, and I believe it would enhance the game-play of ToonTown Rewritten. Before you publicly release the game, I suggest you augment the servers. Servers are already crashing occasionally,and if you publicly release the game before improving the servers, the game will have a plethora of crashes. Also, I have another suggestion for updates after the public release of the original "ToonTown Online" game, I recommend you to put out major updates every month or two where it includes (ideas for my liking): new playgrounds, new bosses(Chief Strategy Officer, Chief Minister, etc.), new animals and colors for creating toons, new clothes, new objects in the catalog, new doodles, new categories for cogs if new bosses are made, etc. Thank you. -Split Purr Sonality

Mistwing said on July 5, 2014 at 4:00 PM
YAY! I've been wanting to play forever but my time always seemed to come up ridiculously early in the morning or while I was at school... thats what i get for living on the east coast I guess

Little Light said on July 5, 2014 at 4:05 PM
Wow, what a fabulous update! This was something I did not expect. I assumed that the waiting was inevitable since many have not been able to play after months, but you all have outdone yourselves! Thank you for listening and responding (in quite a unique way, too)

Connor said on July 5, 2014 at 4:08 PM
I didn't expect that today.. I would have spot in line for Monday. :')

Morty All Grown-Up said on July 5, 2014 at 5:13 PM
Shoutout to you guys caring about the Easterners! It's about time we get some love =P. I got to say with the three hours it's tough to "not be selfish" and not focus on your own toontasks. I think what's slowing down my enjoyment is the ability to take my time, find friends, hangout, socialize, but I guess that's why this is Beta and some people have their 'full' access already. Can't wait to be able to fully enjoy Toontown again (FYI: I'm very happy with the opportunities we've already been given. Thanks for that.)

Lucas said on July 5, 2014 at 5:15 PM
This is amazing! Thank you!

Carl The Mouse said on July 5, 2014 at 5:22 PM
Oh my gosh im so excited! Sir max, and everyone else who is working on this, (if you should read this) I'd like to say well done for your excellence so far! You guys rock!

Grelhado said on July 5, 2014 at 5:30 PM
I think the game should translate into Portuguese, I am Brazilian and I love this game. Although quite understand English, a Brazilian version of the game would attract more players.

Wareve said on July 5, 2014 at 5:44 PM
Could I suggest something? If you could not schedule Play Time when you have Maintenance, then people won't be full of disappointment when they see "server shuts down in 20 minutes", because the Play Line will include the Maintenance down time.

Fancy Horror Show said on July 5, 2014 at 5:48 PM
I have almost no lag now with this update! I am so excited, it was almost impossible to play before. Now hopefully I will finally be able to get out of TTC and get my beta key! But unfortunately I just got to the front of the line and I have to go to work... so maybe next time, hahaha.

Little Decoy said on July 5, 2014 at 5:52 PM
Yay! Reading this update really amused me. I had problems like this in the first few days of the play line, but after the fixes came, I could count on playing about every 2 days.

Princess Peanut said on July 5, 2014 at 6:38 PM
lol Sir Max made me laugh. That was funny. hehe Thanks for all the work you guys do.

Fractal said on July 5, 2014 at 6:39 PM
Look at that! I snagged a PlayTime that was less than a week from the date I was scheduling it! Thanks so much for the changes.

JamJam said on July 5, 2014 at 6:39 PM
The playtime scheduling works much better now, but the playtime still tells me to wait over 40 hours. I'm stuck with the scheduling, however it's better than not being able to play the game at all. Great step in the right direction, thanks!

Collieflower said on July 5, 2014 at 6:44 PM
Thank you, TTR team! I finally got a scheduled Playtime for the first time in several weeks! I'm happy about allowing more toons in at one time via the Playline as well. Well done, guys. Thank you for listening to and thinking of us toons :)

Blue Bonnet said on July 5, 2014 at 7:09 PM
Thanks TTR team! You are the best. We really do appreciate all the work you guys do to make our experience in TT great. Can't wait to try it out again.

Nachos said on July 5, 2014 at 7:09 PM
My playtime had ended and i just schedule another one at july 4:00 PM thank you for adding more slots! it is now more easy to find slots :)

Lily Nuttybrains said on July 5, 2014 at 7:18 PM
Thanks for improving the playline and playtimes, though I've only used playline so far. Anymore beta keys coming out?

John said on July 5, 2014 at 7:26 PM
You guys are epic thank you

Prince Pickles said on July 5, 2014 at 7:34 PM
This rocks thanks you guys. Toontown rewritten rules

Little Foot said on July 5, 2014 at 8:03 PM
This is an awesome update and it really helps those who aren't able to make it in time to schedule a new playtime and can't enter the playline as quickly as they had hoped! But that doesn't necessarily help me and my brothers computers with the launcher problem. I'm still waiting for the versions to go down so my brothers and I won't have to upgrade just to download the launcher and play. Please let us know when you've made 10.6.8 versions for Mac and lower so my brothers can play along with me. I will not beg anymore when you do that! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Oh, and...that's a lot of words that you have added to the Whitelist! Yippee! TOONS OF THE WORLD REUNITE :D

Bright Night Light said on July 5, 2014 at 8:04 PM
Awesome!! Also that was a really cool and epic idea!! Us toons get to experience what TTR is like right now instead of when it's finished. Whoever thought of the PlayLine is AWESOME and A GENIUS!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! ( and I doubt that it was Sir Max XD )

Little Tom said on July 5, 2014 at 9:48 PM
Any chance you guys could consider 'up'ing the play times to four hours each to give us a little more time? Great job so far though, this is going just amazing!! I love being in town again. You have made my dreams come true... no joke.

Spike said on July 5, 2014 at 10:14 PM
This is awesome! Sounds like you guys are making GREAT progress! Glad to see TTR getting better than it already was!

Jiloatatico said on July 5, 2014 at 10:59 PM
This is amazing!!

Lady Peppercorn said on July 5, 2014 at 11:44 PM
Fantastic! Maybe now I'll finally get a playline time when I'm not stuck in a cog suit, and I can actually get in...

Lady Boo Boo said on July 6, 2014 at 12:26 AM
Great job on that PlayTime stuff guys, but maybe you better take back the "Various server stability enhancements", bacause it brings the opposite than stability to the game.

Goin Bananas said on July 6, 2014 at 12:26 AM
Yes! I love you guys, hopefully now I can get a PlayTime

Mustelidae said on July 6, 2014 at 1:01 AM
You should really do something about the playtime we get in-game. 3 hours just isnt enough. After waiting for 3 days i finally got to play or should i say log in at about 1:30 this morning. so far most of my playtime has been spent seeing "you lost internet connectivity to the servers!" And I kid oyu not. the first 45 minutes of my scheduled time was spent sitting here downloading 32 updates. More if you count that the 32nd kept resetting. When i finally got in game i finished my trolley part of the tut and thats all she wrote. I cant get into the headquarters because "server is temporarily unavailable" . I understand everyone needs a chance to play but don't make them spend most of that time with those big updates at the beginning. I know it's in BETA which is why im telling you this :) other than that Thank you! for bringing back this game. My fiance and me loved this game and were very sad when it closed down.

Xanadu said on July 6, 2014 at 3:41 AM
Ever Since The Original Toontown Closed, I have been hoping Disney would reconsider their decision, My hopes were crushed. I am so Thankful Toontown Rewritten has made Everyones Dreams come True. The wait lines are not a problem for me,I will wait as long as it takes to Play. Looking forward to the day when Rewritten goes Live.. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of Beta! ?

Tom Bumblecrump said on July 6, 2014 at 7:05 AM
THANKS GUYS, this is one of the only companies that listen to their fans.

Sea Green Cat said on July 6, 2014 at 7:19 AM
Wow, Thank you guys so much for all of the hard work!!! This is so awesome! I have a suggestion though, perhaps have a timer displaying when the next round of PlayTime slots will be released? Again, thank you all so much for all the time and effort you all have put in. This is truly amazing and incredible of you all!

Fat Lloyd Wrinklezap said on July 6, 2014 at 7:25 AM

Cyden said on July 6, 2014 at 8:07 AM
Thank you. Thank you so much!! Now you finally know how we feel when waiting for years in the PlayLine. I'm so glad you listened to us :D

OrangeIsBest said on July 6, 2014 at 8:21 AM
You totally played with my emotions there by saying we'd cross that line. :D Ah well. Thanks for these improvements. My two day play line should be significantly shorter and hopefully I get some workable PlayTime. Thanks a bunch!

Secret Spy said on July 6, 2014 at 8:51 AM
I think all these changes are really good except for one, the no custom models one. Now, don't get me wrong. I do not support the idea for cheating, however if it IS possible, and if you could do it, maybe you might change it so you CAN use custom models, but you CAN'T change collisions. Even if it does look bad, other toons would see you in a normal place, and players can add decorations to the playground without anyone seeing it. Hopefully you take this in consideration. But yeah, this is a very good update. I can't wait to see what you are going to throw at us!

Nikki said on July 6, 2014 at 9:36 AM
I have to wait 2 weeks to get in the game. And worse, It's at 7 A.M! Time to set my alarm clock! Also, how do you get a beta key? I would love to go into the game earlier!

Princess Lollipop Lemontwist said on July 6, 2014 at 10:57 AM
Thank you so much! This is an awesome update. It's been so exciting playing again! Thank you for bringing back many toons favourite childhood game!

Grizzly Stardust said on July 6, 2014 at 11:32 AM
This is great! You guys are doing an excellent job and it is very exciting as a player and a part of the community to know that we are heard and that results come. An immense thank you!

Strawberry Scarlet Kitty said on July 6, 2014 at 11:39 AM
Thanks a million! I'm so excited because for when my cursor hits the big play button...

Bun-Bun said on July 6, 2014 at 12:13 PM
Ha, same here. It was either wait 44 hours or a week. I chose a week, I don't know why

Mark said on July 6, 2014 at 12:30 PM
Pie in the sky this is beautiful

Firebolt said on July 6, 2014 at 12:58 PM
This is super considerate, thank you for caring! The description of the PlayLine is literally me haha.

Master Toon II said on July 6, 2014 at 1:15 PM
Wait a second, is this referencing "Mr. Bone's Wild Ride"?

super boo boo nuttyflipper said on July 6, 2014 at 10:33 PM
keep up the good work ttr team. and i hope to be back to toontown sooner

Bacon Egg and Cheese said on July 7, 2014 at 7:39 AM
Thank you for making this update!!! Now that playtime slots are released more often my cousin and I can finally play!

Toon-Raider said on July 7, 2014 at 8:37 AM
Toontastic! You guys are doing great at this programming and reprogramming toontown! I would love to say that you guys are amazing and listening to us toons! - sees cogs - Well gotta go let the pies fly!

Omega said on July 7, 2014 at 8:50 AM
You guys are awesome! You never let us down! Thank You so much! This game is going to be so toontastic! Toons of the world, UNITE!

Glowingseed said on July 7, 2014 at 10:05 AM
Aww, YES! Thank you, Sir Max!! Now I have a better chance of going on TTR more often!

Loopy Jellyroll said on July 7, 2014 at 10:31 AM
Awesome! I'm super excited! Thank you, and keep up the great work!

Sealy said on July 7, 2014 at 10:32 AM
I think it's fair that a limited amount of Toons get to play Toontown, considering it's not open beta yet. Keep up the good work!

Tom T said on July 7, 2014 at 2:49 PM
I like your articles, the tone you speak with that goes straight to kids so its more funnier for them to read the articles :)

Cliff Twiddletoon said on July 7, 2014 at 2:50 PM
This helps because, yes. I am an "Easterner". So when I find these times that require me to stay up until 2 A.M., I just skip over it because I need my sleep, believe it or not. THANK YOU TOONTOWN REWRITTEN (dot com)

Blue said on July 7, 2014 at 5:18 PM
This is one of your funniest posts so far! Poor Sir Max..... Keep up the good work :D

Destiny said on July 8, 2014 at 9:12 PM
Woohoo!!! I hope I can get into one of the playtime slots soon! 43 Hours and counting in the PlayLine!

Pickles said on July 9, 2014 at 9:43 AM
Thank you so much! This is great!

Pepper said on July 9, 2014 at 7:54 PM
I still have to wait 2 days. :(

lady lillimay said on July 9, 2014 at 9:58 PM
"o, no "! The cogs have broke through the system and have stopped toons everywhere from destroying them. Now toons that try are stopped at the gate. Let's see if Master Max can break through and open the gate so the cogs will have something to be afraid of. .... Go Max!
