Unfortunately practical concerns have to, and should, take precedence over nostalgia! The old pages used to have the old layout because they'd been left untouched when I originally made the new layout, but for this port, I had to recreate the entire site - the server the site is running on now literally can't run the code that the old pages used to run on. There was no way to simply keep the old pages as they were.
If it'd make you happy, though, I could specially recreate the old layout as an easter egg kind of thing, which'd make it possible to view any page in the old layout (and thus any of the old styles) if you so chose. :P
(When I say if it'd make you happy, I mean I'd actually kind of enjoy doing that anyway, because I get a kick out of doing stuff like that - see the existence of Oldie style.)
I have to say… I'm very disappointed that the old pages now have the new site's styleswitcher. One of my favorite aspects of reading old pages was looking at the old styles I remember from my childhood, making the site look like how it was back then and increasing the nostalgia. Now that's all gone. D:
Whoops, fixed the sprite generator (although the old sprite paths still work; it was just using relative paths, and the new URL has it in a subdirectory).
The graying-out thing has definitely always worked that way, though; I didn't change anything about the actual script. Specifically, what those radio buttons do when you've already generated some sprites is switch to that version's sprites, so if one of the generated Pokémon does not exist in earlier generations, then the buttons are grayed out because there is no R/G sprite of Glaceon that it could show you. I agree it'd probably be more useful to just let you select it and show (unavailable in this version) or something, though.
Congrats on finishing! Looking forward to new content. I know you should have the material for some movie reviews, at least. (My personal review of the Victini movie: 1) aww, Victini is cute 2) wtf is happening.)
The sprite generator is still using the old sprite paths, so the sprites it generates are broken. Also, if the sprites generated are from a generation later than 1, all the earlier generations end up grayed out/unselectable. For example, I had it set to Pt sprites, one of the pokemon generated was glaceon, and then after that I couldn't change the version to R/G because it had been grayed out. I don't think it did that before? Not sure if it's a feature, but it doesn't strike me as very useful…
(There was no way I was going to bed without finding at least one bug, nope.)
And now, we have the grand opening to the new Cave of Dragonflies!
Test post on the new server!
Ruby: Pikachu, platonically. :P
(I mean, if Ash ever gets into a romantic relationship, it is definitely going to take a backseat to his partnership with Pikachu.)
windzle: It's pretty old and not great. I wanted to do an abused Pokémon POV where it's clear most trainers are good, and I had this idea about "happiness" evolutions actually being triggered by any strong emotion towards the trainer. Ultimately it's pretty clichéd, though; not one of my better works even back then.
lillian: I'm a woman, but thanks!
props to the dude who made this site
