A whole month has gone by already since the last update and it really doesn't seem like that much time has gone by so quickly but it really has because my Calender says so. I've been trying to get the Pet Combat System working and I can say that I have been making really good progress for the most part but there is still a lot more to do before it is completed.
My computer is still messed up because of that windows update that I did, I really regret that we do updates on our computers expecting something good and beneficial to come from it and to have a negative outcome from it really leaves me wondering why do I do these updates in the first place. I mean seriously has anyone read the details "More information" link that is provided inside the windows update area? If you click on it it opens a tab in your browser but the information provided is very limited and it doesn't say "This will probably mess up your system and you can't undo it...( evil laugh goes here )". Anyway I don't want to keep mentioning this but I really dread the idea of doing a backup of everything and then doing a full system format and manually restore everything :[
Enough of my rant, back on topic.
One of the new additions within this update will be the ability to Spectate any battle regardless of if it is against normal monsters or Pet vs Pet combat.
As for the current progress I would say that the pet functionality to be able to combat against another pet is nearly completed but there is a ton of other stuff that comes in to play afterwards which is the win, lose, ranking, reward system and more. I'm thinking that I can't fit everything in this update because it just takes too long to make everything, so what I will do is put some this stuff aside until the update after this one so that I can focus my efforts in to a clear line of sight instead of jumping all over the place to add little bits of pieces to everything everywhere.
This update will include the Victory Coins
in that you will be able to collect them but you will not be able to use them until the update after this one. You can view the amount of Coins from your inventory.
The ability to use items while in battle, the greyed out stuff is not usable in battle.
So for those of you who will be looking to challenge my CheesyPuffs be careful because you might just realize the wrath of a tiny little Hamster might be more than what you realized. Just to be clear there is no specific date of when this update will be completed but I am trying to do what I can, remember to enjoy your Christmas break and invite your friends to come play because the more people that know about CSK the better it is for everyone :)
