Just so long as we don't see the dreaded Roulette_Final_FINAL_2…

Congrats again on seeing the roulette project through to the end (for now?)! It's looking great. I enjoy just messing around and setting some balls rolling; the animation is really great.

Some nice little improvements here and there, too! Always nice to see more updates around the site.

@Funny Guy: Thank you, glad you remember it fondly!

@atsned: I could consider adding some form of mode with bigger artwork, sure… Will keep it in mind. Thanks for mentioning it!

@Atticlu.net: Do you mean boxes that scroll independently? Those are already covered in the HTML guide, under the CSS lesson; you just give the element a fixed height and then set overflow:auto; on it!

Uh, Dragonfree, Maybe you could add those boxes with like a scrollbar and the content in it stays in it (not that resizeable kind thats is being used right now to type this comment into this guestbook) into the HTML guide or some other page?
Have an epic day!

TLDR: The pictures in the favorite Pokemon picker are rather small, which makes it tough to accurately pick sometimes. I have no idea how difficult it would be to change this technically but I would be very grateful if it could be done.

Hi, I've been absolutely loving the favorite Pokemon picker, it's the best one I've found. What I really enjoy about it is how every time I use it, I get a different top 10. The second-last time I did it, Mega Beedrill was comfortably the number 1, but the latest time I did it, it didn't even scratch the top 10. The only problem I've had with it is that the pictures are rather small, which skews the results as it makes the details very difficult to see. Zooming in the page does not work very well and the pictures start becoming blurry very quickly. While I enjoy the variance of the results, that's more when it is the result of my capriciousness rather than inaccurate judgements. I don't know how difficult this would be to do as I have no experience in web development, but it would be great if it could happen and would make the favorite Pokemon picker tool absolutely perfect. Regardless, I still love the tool and will probably be generating another top 10 again very soon. Thank you for creating the tool!

I think I see; you want to remove the height:150px from the #header element in the CSS. You'll probably also want to set max-width:100% on the header image, so it won't stretch the page for someone with a smaller screen.

Like, the banner is meant to be large across the top of the page, like how a banner in real life would look, across the top of something. (not big enough to cover the whole page) I used Krita to draw it and I used a 1920 x 800 pixel canvas to draw it.

@Inkysplotch.AAA: What do you mean by "changing it to a banner"? What's the effect you want?

I was still using your free website layout, and i decided to change the logo of my site to a banner, and for some reason, the banner stretched out to the entire page and went under the text and other images? And i resized the banner and it stayed that way? Why did this happen?

@Inkysplotch.AAA: Hey! Glad you enjoyed the HTML guide.

Your menu links don't work because you've just written <a blog.html>, when it needs to be <a href="blog.html">. You need to be careful with stuff like that in HTML - the syntax needs to be exact!

On the art dump page, it's just that the images are very large. You could shrink them down in an art program, or you can add this to the bottom of the style.css file:

#content img {
max-width:100%;
}

This will prevent any images inside the main content from becoming any wider than the main content itself, regardless of the size of the user's screen, while keeping the images at their original aspect ratio.

Hope that helps!

Hey, I found you through your HTML guide and i decided to use one of your free layouts (the stretching div layout) and i added the links to the other pages on my site and i tested it and i could hover over the links and stuff but i clicked the links and they did nothing, They didn't link me to the page the links were supposed to, i still was on the Home page when i clicked the links. I checked the code and i saw no reason this was supposed to be happening.
Also i had an art dump and when i used the layout suddenly the art went off to the side and as a result a part of it is off screen and you couldn't see a part of the images, I could see why this was happening, but i don't know how i could fix it.
Have an epic day!

Wait, the whole thing was real? I cross-checked with Bulbapedia (which also had a great prank) to make sure the roulette machine existed, but I kind of just assumed that everything after the first helper tool was fake, because <i>who in the heck</i> programs that much nonsense?! I miss the 2D games…

God dammit. Of course it would end up being something like this.

So hype to see all this posted at last! I didn't even remember that the probabilities are set to the player always wins in the long run. And the simulator came out so nicely! It's weirdly satisfying to put it on one of the multi-ball options and just watch all those circles spin around to their final positions.

The fuzz value… Something to do with cleanliness of the ball seems plausible. Or at least as plausible as anything else. DEEPLY wish I could pick the brain of whoever designed this minigame. I have so many questions!

Love the header. Chaos goblin Shroomish is everything to me.

I hope whoever asked for this one is happy! Surely they got way more than they bargained for, lol.

Roulette game honestly seem fun, the physics likely was used for Pokemon Pinball in some way, or at least that the vibe I got from it.

Man, I really love your April fools jokes.
The article was great - it's so fun to see the bizarre logic that hides in some corners of these games. I also unironically like the layout, that Taillow is adorable.
