The game and the pokemon center should now be up and running! I'm still transferring some pokemon from inactive accounts over but that will be good to go in a couple of days. It's good to be back!

As many of you might have noticed, if you are an avid Sam and Dan Games fan, the Pokemon Center and the game will not load or save. This is due to our current host GoDaddy. We pretty much have outgrown their shared hosting plan so in order to not cause problems they added a filter that will block very active users from the server. The solution to this is to move to a more capable hosting service. This process is not an easy one and it takes a large amount of time to complete due to the vast amount of data that needs to be transferred . I ask for your patience in the matter. We will still be working on our games HTD, PTD 2, and ANPO while this is happening so it doesn't mean all progress has come to a halt. We will keep you updated on Twitter and here on the blog on the progress for getting PTD back on its feet and ready to go. Even if we had a 100 people this process would take a couple of weeks. We will get it working asap. Thanks for the support.

P.S. You will not lose any data that was saved.
P.S.S. We can't process any orders for the SnD Coins as well since that involves accessing the site which we are both currently blocked from. We'll respond with an email accordingly to any orders that come in and will process the orders as soon as we can.

HTD: Since the latest 3 posts are all rather significant I'm just going to post a small HTD update here in order to keep them all on the front page. As noted above we're having some issues that we need take care of ASAP. Since Sam has heavy involvement in that process we are pushing off the next HTD release till we get this server issue resolved. The next HTD release will contain a bunch of stuff that we've be working on (Not including reworked graphics) and we'll be continuing to work on everything in the meantime. Sorry about the delay guys!

Good progress has been made, I'm in the process of moving the databases to a new server. I moved the user database which has over 2 million entries on it today. Along with the small HTD database that only has 60 thousand entries. There are 8 different pokemon databases, the biggest one has 11 million entries in it. Smallest one has over 1 million. Sadly I can't automate this process since I don't have direct access to the server. I have to slowly take chunks of the database (about 200k entries) and import them on the new server. So we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but we still have to dig for quite a few days and then test everything to make sure it works. In the meantime since I moved the user database and the HTD database (which was tiny and took a few minutes) HTD is now playable again!
