Is this a Bad Time?

Posted by Sir Max on August 16, 2014 07:53 PM

Yes, it most certainly is a bad time.

They don't pay me to write blog post past 5:00PM, you know. They don't pay me at all, you know. Yet here I am at 7:53PM, writing this very post to inform you that the Telemarketers have started a Mega-Invasion.

I don't know if it's some sort of tracking beacon, or if they have a radar in their metal heads, or what -- but ever since those Telemarketers caught wind that we all have phones now, they've always called at all of the wrong times. First it was during dinner, then while I was in the bathroom, and now they've interrupted Aladdin and my "Goodbye Genie" party with this madness! I am literally bawling my eyes out as I write this post. I should probably see a therapist -- but that's beside the point.

I've hung up on them, pressed "8" to remove us from the mailing list (And then "4", "7", and "13" respectively to confirm that I wanted to do this), and everything else under the moon you could think of. I'm telling you, these Telemarketers just won't stop calling! With this invasion, Toons, it's time for us to do what we do best: fill up the seltzers, grab some pies, and restock your gags. It's time to take back Toontown once again!

August 17, 2014 [ttr-beta-v1.4.1]

• Overall code cleanup.

• Fix a glitch allowing Toons to be invisible outside of their estate.
• Fix a crash when walking up to a Knock-knock Door.
• Fix an exploit allowing locked animations to be purchased.
• Prevent a server crash relating to house decoration.
• Use the proper font for Cog Boss speech.
• Correct a few typos in ToonTask dialogue and Cog speech.

• Decrease initial scale of the phone.
• Interactable items (Phone, Bean Bank, etc.) can now be placed in the attic.
• Change the default bank name to "Jellybean Bank" -- 1000 Bean Banks are no longer used as per a Disney update.

If only I had a "13" button.

Sir Fancy said on August 16, 2014 08:05 PM
Yay! It's good to know you can "accidentally" walk up to a knock-knock door and not crash the client! (This happened to me many times and I'm glad it's fixed)

Goodbye genie. :(

Good 'ol Spotty Hulatwist said on August 16, 2014 08:27 PM
'Goodbye Genie' Party I'm crying ;__;

Ooowoo said on August 16, 2014 08:33 PM
I guess this is a good opportunity to train gags (if I can't do my tasks due to these invasions. You guys should think about safe zone districts). But I might be able to train my lure in TTC (I feel lucky because it has been working more than other toon's lures) and I hope to see other toons training also.

Skipper doodles madness said on August 16, 2014 08:40 PM
Oh no! Let's get those telemarketers and tell them that no, we do not want to here about time shares! Toons of the world, unite!

Starlow moony shine said on August 16, 2014 08:42 PM
Not to get off topic (I hate telemarketers as much as the next toon) but I wish you hadn't fixed the invisible glitch. It was a pretty funny prank don't you think?

LarrLee said on August 16, 2014 08:46 PM
We have cars and estates and all this toony stuff but nobody has bothered to invent caller ID (*cough* Surlee *cough*)??? Oh well. Toons, you know what to do!

Cool Pinky said on August 16, 2014 09:10 PM
Those Telemarketers! I'm ready for these invasions!! I'm ready!!

Unicorn Master said on August 16, 2014 09:20 PM
I was wondering why there was so many telemarketer invasions....

Illumina said on August 16, 2014 09:24 PM
Who cares about time? We love your news because I'm all excited to see the progress of Toontown Rewritten!

Sat.<3 said on August 16, 2014 09:29 PM
Thank you SO MUCH for fixing the bug about the knock knock doors!! :P

Stewie said on August 16, 2014 09:44 PM
No it wasn't a bad time -Yawwwn- Anytime is cog smashing time

Bluedog said on August 16, 2014 10:11 PM
Thank you for fixing the Knock-knock doors.

Prof. Felix Macmarble said on August 16, 2014 11:32 PM
Is it still ongoing? At 5am Toontown Time, will it still be on? Very well, let me just get my fruit pie out of the oven...

Midnight Warrior said on August 16, 2014 11:35 PM
This will be great for toons that are training, and now we don't have to deal with those knock knock doors crashing us.

said on August 16, 2014 11:36 PM
'Goodbye Genie' :'( ( I'm still crying )

Princess Hulagadget said on August 16, 2014 11:41 PM
Sir Max! I'm going to be watching Aladdin on Tuesday with my friends with my own Genie-going-away party! You should join us, maybe you won't be interrupted this time. But I can't believe we both thought the same thing.

Buddy Bear said on August 17, 2014 12:23 AM
Finally no more knock-knock door crashing! Awesome!

baby bunny said on August 17, 2014 01:05 AM
not a bad time at all :D

Bouncey said on August 17, 2014 03:22 AM
I'm excited to pie those cogs in the face! But that Aladdin reference though...

Destroyer said on August 17, 2014 03:39 AM
Oh, wow, time to destroy some telemarketers! :D

Doctor Wildfoot said on August 17, 2014 05:03 AM
"Overall Code Cleanup" Music to a programmers ears.

Deputy J.C. said on August 17, 2014 05:47 AM
Those silly telemarkters! They always call me when I'm in the middle of watching my show! Then I have to find the remote ( no easy task for me!) and pause and then find the phone! Time to do some bustin'!

Peppermint said on August 17, 2014 05:57 AM
I miss Genie D: But, thank you for fixing the knock-knock doors :D

Loud Thunderchomp said on August 17, 2014 06:01 AM
Thank you for fixing that "Knock-Knock Door" crash, it confused me why everytime I ran into one and the game shut down, the game is making beautiful progress.

Midnight Eclipse said on August 17, 2014 06:56 AM
I got a play time tonight!

Firemouse said on August 17, 2014 07:23 AM
yay knock-know door fixed! :D Thanks for the hard work!

Skipper said on August 17, 2014 07:56 AM
Wow. Toontown is AWESOME. I love the new hose and lure animations! You guys are great. Keep it up!

Sally said on August 17, 2014 08:11 AM
Aw, man! I hope that we can resolve this soon! If they aren't gone by Tuesday, I will come and help save the day!

Mr. Toon said on August 17, 2014 09:05 AM
This will be so EASY. Telemarketers are level 2-6 and this will make it VERY EASY to train lure. I need those version 2.0 cogs!

Crazy said on August 17, 2014 09:20 AM
Yes! This is the first time I actually wanted to talk to a telemarketer. Thanks to them, I got my bossbot suit last night! :)

Final Fortnight said on August 17, 2014 11:17 AM
I just want to say thanks a TON! You guys are adding cooler and cooler things each week and it's wonderful to know that you have the interests of the toons and you make things that you know they'll like, like the v2 invasions. I'm so happy, TTR is better than I imagined it to be, so thanks again guys! :D

SlowBro said on August 17, 2014 11:33 AM
Stop calling my phone, you crazy cogs! I want to say goodbye in peace. :'(

Old Cheese said on August 17, 2014 12:29 PM
Hooray! I can buy myself some presents for my birthday on the 18th! :D I hope something special arrives then, and that I hope no bad Telemarketers ruin my day. If we had mailboxes I'd ask all my friends to send me presents. Haha! Or do we use them yet...

Princess Fireball said on August 17, 2014 04:54 PM
Never too late for fighting cogs!! *puts cake slice in my backpack*

Jollibee said on August 17, 2014 05:49 PM
These mega invasions are so useful! I have maxed 4 gag tracks already. Thanks TTR. I hope you guys do more mega invasions in the future.

Rollie Rufflebumble said on August 17, 2014 07:10 PM
Darn those Telemarketers! I've been wanting to have a peaceful fishing trip at my estate. I guess I'll have to postpone it AGAIN because of those darn cogs. I guess it's a good thing that I already have my fishing pole ready!

Lady Chocolate Giant Ears said on August 17, 2014 07:15 PM
Here is the real question: How do I get rid of a telemarketer invasion in the real world?

King Bubbles said on August 17, 2014 08:02 PM
Not a bad update :D I love seeing all the glitches fixed and bugs stomped.. next update please fix Toon Rendering Lag? :D??!

Flower said on August 17, 2014 10:11 PM
As some are saying...... GAG TRAINING TIME! Gives me one more reason to go smash down some Cog buildings, too, and I sure love smashing Cog buildings!

Goodbye Genie D:

Aladdin. XD. I kind of laughed, for the fact i watched it about 3-4 times today.

kookyflap said on August 18, 2014 02:45 AM
thank you guys so much for making this free and spending your time and money to bring back toontown.

Boo Boo said on August 18, 2014 02:46 AM
Okay, I think I'm good. I've had plenty of districts invaded. Those pesky Telemarketers are welcome to skip town for a bit. Thanks :D

Lucy said on August 18, 2014 09:05 AM
i wonder when the lag will be fixed? cry ;((((

Red Muffin said on August 18, 2014 09:24 AM
In the future it would be nice to have designated "safe" destricts, as I have to keep district hopping a lot to find one and then it changes to an invasion district. Thanks!

xHector said on August 18, 2014 09:35 AM
Ooo, yay they fixed the Knock-knock Doors c: <3

Epic Lazer Cat said on August 18, 2014 10:57 AM
Yes! I finally get to train my gags! Im really happy to cause i almost have a beta key! Hopefully...

Deputy Bonkers Twiddlegadget said on August 18, 2014 11:11 AM
R.I.P Robin Willams, or "Genie" from Disney's Aladdin. I miss him as well.

coconuthulatwist said on August 18, 2014 12:20 PM
I am happy that toontown rewritten is here. I missed playing ^_^

Mr. kooladez said on August 18, 2014 12:43 PM
Toons, get your gags and rank em up. This is going to be a hard fight!

J.C. WildCrash said on August 18, 2014 01:28 PM
Thank you for putting in the Mega-Invasions! I already got my 4th throw and squirt gag, and my level 2 sound gag! I only need to finish up my lure task tomorrow, (I only have to run to a place and get the reward) so I can train my lure and sound to level 3!

Miss Harvest Hollow Moon said on August 18, 2014 01:59 PM
Time to get those Telemarketers! ...Very sad to see Genie leave us. He has been released from the bottle, to soar free forevermore. Will miss you Genie <3 :(

Little Puppy said on August 18, 2014 02:44 PM
This Rocks!

Wierdigorzippendorf said on August 18, 2014 03:31 PM
I can't begin to tell you how amazing it is to be able to play toontown again. There is no amount of thanking that covers it. You have brought so much joy to so many people. All I can say is thank you and you have worked miracles. Congratulations!!

Banana Bob said on August 18, 2014 04:13 PM
Ooh this will be fun... if only I could get a playtime so I could get past 15 laff..

Lily Ice Mist said on August 18, 2014 05:44 PM
Thank you for fixing the knock knock doors! perhaps maybe the teleporting glitch next? No, no, just kidding! Thanks :3

Nurse Quackers said on August 18, 2014 09:37 PM
Keep the Telemarketers coming... I love the idea of mega invasion.

Mister Mastiff said on August 19, 2014 03:21 AM
Toontown really is growing! Thanks for the slots and keys! My brother could really use them both!

nene said on August 19, 2014 10:11 AM
Soooooo.... when will this be out to the public? I cant wait for another year. ToonTown was pretty much my life since kindergarten. No joke everyday after school we would play on it for hours. We would race out the car to get to the computers. dont even get me started on the summers. I'm sure you can relate my story. - Jocee,aka,nene

Beau said on August 19, 2014 10:45 AM
This Is So Easy Now That I Have Level 5 Throw And Squirt and level 4 drop and level 3 heals and can carry 35 gags... THESE TELEMARKETERS CANT STOP ME!!!

Toxic said on August 19, 2014 03:14 PM
Oh my...we'll need some powerful gags to stop them

Crazy dog said on August 20, 2014 04:13 PM
These telemarketers keep calling my house so I have to get some gags!

Sir Colin Bobbington said on August 20, 2014 05:08 PM
TELEMARKETERS NO! You shouldn't be talking about wasting time at a therapist, we need to stop these telemarketers quickly! We don't have time to deal with therapists!

Cuddles Crinklemuffin said on August 20, 2014 06:14 PM
"Goodbye Genie"? Lol. Anyways, all I have to say is Mega Invasions are AWESOME. Already to level four throw and squirt gags at 23 laff!

Romeo Crunchenflip whatever accidental thing I named my toon said on August 20, 2014 07:23 PM
Thanks for letting me hear cheesy knock knock jokes without crashing again! :D

Uranium Pineapple said on August 21, 2014 06:19 PM
Awesome! I love "Goodbye Genie"! By the way, thanks for fixing the knock knock doors. Half of my crashes were caused by them!

bandygirl said on August 23, 2014 08:25 AM
Goodbye genie :( you will be missed
