Super Saturday Update: What Does the Toon Say?

Posted by Sir Max on November 2, 2013 at 2:00 PM

woof arf rruff ruff, arf woof woof. arf woof rruff arf- woof arf arf rruff! arf woof, rruff rruff woof, arf, woof, arf woof.

...rruff?

Oh, I'm sorry! Here, let me turn SpeedChat+ on for you. Better?



Welcome to Super Saturday, the first somewhat-major update for Toontown Rewritten. We've packed in a couple new features, along with a boatload of bug fixes that we piled up over the week.

Let's start with the obvious one: SpeedChat+!
It was annoying at first to be Chatless, but as the week went on I started getting used to it and enjoying it. As a thanks for your feedback and patience, SpeedChat+ is now available. It currently uses the original Disney whitelist (with a few modifications), however this is only temporary. In the future we will be adding a new way to make typed communication not only easier, but safer.

Next up on the list is a whole new feature for you to spend time with when you are sick of playing Toon Escape over and over again: Fishing! One of the locals, Freddy, has set up a pond in Toontown Central to fish in. Grab a rod and head on over to the docks!

November 2, 2013 [ttr-alpha-g873fb10]

Maintenance:
? Fix that pesky "Error 117" disconnection bug
? Perform a vectored I/O to increase network efficiency
? Enable TCP_NODELAY to decrease server ping
? Better detect dead connections to prevent them from running indefinitely
? Fix a major server hang that would caused all other player movement to freeze
? Even more server stability

Bugs:
? Fix Match Minnie music to loop correctly

Features:
? Add SpeedChat+ as a thanks for feedback during the Chatless Update. The whitelist is slightly modified based off of common complaints.
? Minor SpeedChat rewording
? Implement Fishing! Currently, only the twig rod is available.
? Implement Toon Escape, a game based off of escaping from a robot factory. Not like we'll ever need to learn that, though!

Eight Ball said on November 2, 2013 at 2:17 PM
Can't wait till i get my paws on this! (Wish i had an alpha key ;) )

Idealia said on November 2, 2013 at 2:23 PM
Hi I've got a great idea for Toontown Rewritten! How about you create cycles? Like Day and Night in toontown? or even add storms and weather effects! That would be neat! Anyways I just wanted to say that and give you the ideas for blizzards and storms! So Thanks! Hope you like it

Isabella said on November 2, 2013 at 2:26 PM
Yay! Great progress! I am so very happy!

Valentine said on November 2, 2013 at 2:27 PM
Amazing! Thanks Joey! You're the best.

Kewldude said on November 2, 2013 at 2:29 PM

Master C said on November 2, 2013 at 2:33 PM
I love what your doing. Your fixing up Toontown and having fun with it too. Thanks guys :D

Baron Fancy Snifflenerd said on November 2, 2013 at 2:37 PM
Will there be numbers in the chat because that annoyed me so much!

Grantchula said on November 2, 2013 at 2:39 PM
I'm glad to see this is coming through, thanks devs.

Joy said on November 2, 2013 at 2:39 PM
Wow! Speedchat plus, finally! Well, after a while. Thanks so much Sir Max!

Colonel Bonzo said on November 2, 2013 at 2:41 PM
Woo hoo!! Speedchat+ For the Win!

Punchy Mouse said on November 2, 2013 at 2:50 PM
DIS IS FANTASTIC! I may not be in the beta, but atleast when it comes out ill know this is here again

ToonyTom said on November 2, 2013 at 2:54 PM
Awesome! Nice reference to what does the fox say.XD

Cool Twinkleflap said on November 2, 2013 at 3:01 PM
Nice update guys!

Popcorn said on November 2, 2013 at 3:02 PM
How do I get an alpha key? I miss playing toontown.

Melody said on November 2, 2013 at 3:02 PM
I was just reading this to my friend over the phone. She is so excited!

J.C Fumble Flapper said on November 2, 2013 at 3:12 PM
I'm very happy that there is going to be a major update announced every Saturday! I am exciting to see when it will be released to the public!

Squeakums said on November 2, 2013 at 3:40 PM
Keep up the good work! I have so much for hope for this game, and I am excited for the release of it! It'll be absolutely toontastic! :)

Ikiddyounotiamacow said on November 2, 2013 at 3:53 PM
What does the toon say! pl pl pl pl please release!

KingTomFumbleton said on November 2, 2013 at 4:02 PM
Awesome! Keep up the good work! Soon the thousands of kids crying will have their game back. All thanks to you. :)

Lightning said on November 2, 2013 at 4:12 PM
I have a question, will I have to download this game to my computer?

Dark Night Cat said on November 2, 2013 at 4:20 PM
You guys are the best! This will be a great success! By the way, is it okay to make Fishing easier to max? It would help a lot of Toons :)

Anniee said on November 2, 2013 at 4:21 PM
Sounds great. I have a suggestion about the toon houses. The rooms are kinda small so I think it would be great if there were bigger rooms just for more space. And also introducing new housing items maybe??

Spike WildFlapper said on November 2, 2013 at 4:21 PM
I love these daily updates and only the pictures that go along with it! Toontastic!

Maxie Pumpkin Seed said on November 2, 2013 at 4:44 PM
I told my friend that toontown was closing. she was heartbroken. then I showed her toontown rewritten and her face lit up like a Christmas tree. thank you so much toontown rewritten for making the painful news of toontown closing the happy news of toontown rewritten opening for many years to come.

Skinny Wacko Picklepocket said on November 2, 2013 at 5:02 PM
Stock those ponds with a few extra Full Moon fish! After fishing over 300,000 fish in old TT, I never did manage to catch that elusive Full Moon! :P

Jared DeMouse said on November 2, 2013 at 5:18 PM
I hope the beta will be released soon.

Bingo Thunder Crash said on November 2, 2013 at 5:35 PM
Hi i liked the trolly tracks

Bunny said on November 2, 2013 at 5:49 PM
Great Job!

Master Flapjack Lemon Swirl said on November 2, 2013 at 6:36 PM
Man, I wish I had an alpha key. Alpha testing sounds fun! Especially for Toontown!

Dingo-Licious said on November 2, 2013 at 7:52 PM
Everything looks good so far, nice job guys!

Daydream said on November 2, 2013 at 7:56 PM
Toontown Rewritten is getting more and more like the old Toontown every day, along with some unique additions of the staff's own creation! ^^ I'm so excited to see the final product. I know there's still a long way to go though, keep up the excellent work! ^^

Lucky said on November 2, 2013 at 8:21 PM
This is so flipping neat. You guys rock so hard. Thanks Joey for remaking Toontown for us. I'm so excited to get my hands on those Alpha keys. :)

Mcwoof said on November 2, 2013 at 8:55 PM
This.. is... AMAZING!! Can you guys fix the other Toons choppy movements? The other Toons look like their teleporting when they move :o Can't wait to see more awesome updates :D

Bismouth said on November 2, 2013 at 8:55 PM
Wow, you are doing a great work! Keep it up! Wait... t-t-tt Toon escape? Yay, It's one of my favorite trolley games! I don't want to be chatless, thanks for adding Speedchat+! I can't wait to play Toontown Rewritten! The development is faster than how fast I could imagine! One more thing, bringing back from my previous comment, can you make everyone being able to have all 7 types of gags? Thanks a lot!

Fireball said on November 2, 2013 at 9:10 PM
Can't wait to be able to play! this game was my childhood, keep up the good work guys!

King Rocco Megazapper said on November 2, 2013 at 11:41 PM
I can't wait to play the game again and thanks for taking your time to restore everyones childhood :)

Secret Spy said on November 3, 2013 at 2:38 AM
Why is it when you walk up to Fisherman Freddy, his chat is blank until you press "OK"? Is that a bug for you guys?

Lady Sally Supertoon said on November 3, 2013 at 3:59 AM
This is so cool. I was upset that toontown closed it was a great game and I loved playing it thats why I am so playing toontown rewritten it keeps the feel of the old game when at the same time its fresh and new and off to great start, so I am patiently waiting for it to be open to the public. Consider me another united. TOONS OF THE WORLD UNITE!

Snow Wolf said on November 3, 2013 at 4:16 AM
Wow! I can't believe I can see all of my friends again! I would be nothing without toontown. Toons are nice, cogs are bad, sir max is sweet, and the company!........... Toons of the World Unite!

Maple Rewritten said on November 3, 2013 at 4:51 AM
Yes! Great job guys, I loved SpeedChat+! Can't wait to play.

Noel(Rewritten) said on November 3, 2013 at 5:44 AM
Thank you for all you have done Joey19982. You are really making progress here. Best. Person. Ever.

Rose said on November 3, 2013 at 6:21 AM
Awesome! Nice job on getting daily updates out! Keep 'em coming!

Not ingame yet said on November 3, 2013 at 6:30 AM
I think these ideas are great! If I could make a suggestion: while normal speed chat is better in many ways, speed chat + was more helpful in getting things out faster, I could just type it instead of scroll through a menu. To make the best of both worlds, I think (just a personal opinion, I don't expect this) you should add a search bar where you can type in one or two words and get results related to it. Typing the word "cog" would result in things like "Let's fight the cogs" or "The cogs took my gags", while typing "playground" would offer "I'm heading back to the playground" or "I'm in Toontown Central." Again, I don't expect this, but it might make things easier.

Earth said on November 3, 2013 at 7:00 AM
you guys are doing a great job :D i remember when toontown first released speedchat plus, and now i get to experience that joy all over again. Keep Up the great work and i hope i can max fishing again ;)

dog is a boss said on November 3, 2013 at 7:05 AM
keep up the great work guys!:) also im very bored without toontown but you guys are making it come back again wich makes me so happy i really want an alpha key so i could help search for bugs

Skipper Doggenwoof said on November 3, 2013 at 7:10 AM
Excellent! You guys are doing a good job so far. I can only applaud you. I have a feeling that Toontown Rewritten is going to be the best cartoon game there is. Thank you very much for doing this. I'm grateful.

Bellarisa said on November 3, 2013 at 7:14 AM
Ooo! I'm so excited! Glad to see everything is going smoothly.

Epic Dragon said on November 3, 2013 at 7:16 AM
Now I'm going to burst because I am really, really excited for TTR!

Isabella said on November 3, 2013 at 7:21 AM
Thank you for bringing back everyones favorite game:).

Toonman said on November 3, 2013 at 7:31 AM
Thank you again for remaking toontown for all us toons. ~From Toons, for Toons.

Watashi wa yo A Neko Hito said on November 3, 2013 at 7:31 AM
btw, a good game to come out would be....hmm, the trolley game! i know you ride the trolley to get to the games, but remember when they had the game where you rode the trolley and voted for games? i like that one but itd be rly hard to create again...

GingerGigglebee said on November 3, 2013 at 7:31 AM
2 thumbs up to ALL Developers and Alphas. I enjoyed fishing and chatting and of course the games, yesterday. Of course can't wait to start fighting those cogs. At rate devs are going - the wait will not be long. Great job guys.

Soren said on November 3, 2013 at 8:02 AM
Thank you ? You guys never fail to amaze me. :D Thanks for taking the trouble to add SpeedChat+, too!<3

Little Dottie said on November 3, 2013 at 8:44 AM
I can't wait till more keys are passed out!!! Thanks for trying to bring back a classic game!

Kiwi said on November 3, 2013 at 8:47 AM
In regards to SC+, do you think that maybe you can stop the long animal sounds that happen when you say things that aren't in the SC+ dictionary? It always irritated me that whenever I said something that wasn't in the dictionary, to the point where I tried not to friend non-SFs on my newer toons. I hope that makes sense? You guys are doing great, by the way.

chocolate crocodile said on November 3, 2013 at 8:53 AM
I cant wait till the game comes out! it looks WAY better then normal toontown! :D

Loud Lollipop Googlesplat said on November 3, 2013 at 8:59 AM
Are we allowed to type actual numbers now, such as 1, 2, and 3?

Harvey said on November 3, 2013 at 9:05 AM
Lol What Does The Toon Say XD Perfect!

Dudley Sparkledoodle! said on November 3, 2013 at 9:05 AM
THAT IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! I wish I could get an account! But my mom wont let me. I've been playing Toontown for 4 YEARS and it's always been a great game until it got killed. I was a level 58 conquering bossbot headquarters twice and killing Cashbots. I'm sooooooo happy that you guys are bringing Toontown back. And one question: Can you play in alpha mode?

Mark said on November 3, 2013 at 9:33 AM
Its gonna be amazing! I hope we can do simple things like say numbers and other useful things!

cpt. sparklebutt said on November 3, 2013 at 9:39 AM
cant wait till toontown rewritten is out!

Kopi The Kitten said on November 3, 2013 at 10:02 AM
Keep up the good work!

Tricky Flipper said on November 3, 2013 at 10:39 AM
Love the updates guys, can't wait from new codes and for open beta/release I was skeptical at first ,but you are making a lot of progress. Cant wait to play :)

Jelly said on November 3, 2013 at 10:40 AM
What you're doing here is so kind-hearted to everyone, Well done. Although one thing that's always bugged me is that the music for the slingshot game and diving game were always the wrong way round in the files. They fit each other better the other way round, but that's me being totally picky. :P

Fancy Bizzenbubble said on November 3, 2013 at 11:12 AM
This is actually amazing. You guys update more and more at such a fast rate, its awesome! I can't wait to see what you guys do with the game :)

Dubstep said on November 3, 2013 at 11:13 AM
This looks awesome :) keep up the good work :D

Good ol' Jake Pumpkinbumper said on November 3, 2013 at 11:39 AM
Appreciate you doing this for us. I am amazed that this is going so rapidly. Hopefully TTR will soon come out to the public.

Bubble Rabbit said on November 3, 2013 at 11:58 AM
I always loved fishing.

Leonardo said on November 3, 2013 at 12:05 PM
Congratulations for your work. I have a suggestion: You could refine the houses of Toontown. Por exemple: Could have a larger houses with a mini games. The options of create groups of attack a Cog's, and some form of not descriminate young toons.... I'm sorry for my english, I'm brazilian...

Gagjet said on November 3, 2013 at 12:36 PM
The updates are great, it progresses quickly! :D

Michael said on November 3, 2013 at 12:37 PM
For speedchat+ could you add the ability to type or write out nunbers. I say this because it's annoying to type to instead of 2 or two. Another example is for won I would rather say 1 or one. The new additions are cool also.

LILYLOVEEE said on November 3, 2013 at 12:38 PM
YAYAYAYAYAYAY

Prof. Fireball KookyMooch said on November 3, 2013 at 1:28 PM
You guys rock! I'm super excited for the final release! Toons of the world, unite!

Violet Dreams said on November 3, 2013 at 1:45 PM
I'm so excited for this game! I can't thank any of you enough ;u; And hopefully you can add new and WAY bigger improvements to the game (hopefully to extend the adventure in ToonTown?) Thanks so much! And I hope we can vote for more toons and colors -w-!

King Megawig said on November 3, 2013 at 2:13 PM

Nice job, guys! Can't wait until the release of Toontown Rewritten.

Camo said on November 5, 2013 at 1:49 PM
Wow, cool. And that's funny. What does the toon say? LOL

Queen Kitkat said on November 5, 2013 at 4:45 PM
This looks awesome, good work for keeping updates coming on a daily basis. I just hope that modifications will be made to fishing that makes the ultra-rare species of fish more common and easier to catch. I know that is a big complaint a lot of people had in the past.

Rhysh said on November 6, 2013 at 4:59 AM
Seems Cool! Thanks, Toonbook! I can't wait untill it comes out to the public!

Magical Toon said on November 6, 2013 at 3:37 PM
what an awesome update better than old TT updates

Vannilla said on November 7, 2013 at 11:49 AM
Hey there TTR. Wonderful job you've done with the game. I'm seeing alot of gameplay's on youtube and I can't wait for this game to come out! When is it going to come out may I ask? But let's not change the subject. Congratulations for being successful and winning the game over Disney. Yours Sincerely ~Vannilla.

Anna Dango said on November 7, 2013 at 1:58 PM
