  1. I had an odd happening a few days ago with Trudy's Surprise. It surprised me when I went to spin it, and it acted like I already had when the page loaded. I was worried it had glitched/reset (again). But the very next day all seemed ok with it and since... at least for me. THANKFULLY it didn't reset back to "Day1". Because I visit Trudy's surprise daily, and I was only about 10-12 days away from the 25th day's payout. Now I'm down to waiting for 4 more days until the big payout. (So I guess it was more than a few days ago, more like a week ago. lol) When in doubt, you can always try sending a ticket to TNT to ask them about any glitch you might come across. I hope Trudy's Surprise works glitch-free for you soon!
  2. Agreed on the Brute Boons, not a great selection. But still fun to hope you pick the winning faction. lol And of course, if you can help people get the avatars/site-themes, that's always a good thing. 🙂
  3. For anyone looking for MORE quests. I thought I'd mention that the Faerie Quest Fortune Cookies in the NC Mall are ON SALE for 50NC EACH! That's HALF-PRICE! Great time to stock up if you augment your training with them! Info on these cookies.. Regular price is normally 100NC. They last for 9 days from the time you open one. 9x24hours. A countdown clock will appear on the Faerie Quests page in Faerie City when there is less than 24 hours left before the cookie's time runs out. You cannot build up quests, if you miss doing the cookie's quest one day, you will simply be out of that one quest for that one day. So try to do it daily. 😉 It will run out at precisely the same time it was activated, 9 days later. If you have the Quest Refresh boon from fighting in the Obelisk Skirmishes, and your faction won and HAS that boon, it can be used to randomly change the cookie-quests like with normal random faerie quests. I think that's everything. Just thought I would post, as I recall SOME people wondering when the sale would come back. Not sure when it will end, possibly with the end of the Daily Faerie Quests. That would be my guess at. 😉 least.
  4. I WISH TNT would do some kind of PC port. The game DOES look kind of interesting. But I don't have a smartphone, so maybe it'll work on my Kindle Fire. I'm not going to start now though. I want to wait until the bugs or whatever gets worked out a bit first. That annnnnnd maybe wait to d/l it until I know if it will be connected to the Neopets Site in some way, shape or form. Like some have mentioned, I don't really see a major point in signing up if it's just a standalone mobile game.
  5. "Meh" I say, "meh", and not just in the battledome. lol 😉 I've had good and bad, positive and positively toxic experiences around the net, even on Neopets. While it would be interesting to see a chart and which demographics were kinder, or meaner, or just didn't give a flip. I chalk it up to most people are nice, some people are jerks. And some, you wish you could shove an atomic bomb down their throats. 0;-) Of course some can become your best friend(s) too! Anyway, @Secretly A Pony I'm glad you've had so much positive experiences with Neopets. Regarding the TP, probably where I've had the most less-fun experiences on the site, (not counting getting sniped on an Auction though.) LOL But seriously, in trades, if people don't put anything in their lots as to what they want for an item or items, they should really EXPECT inquiries via NM. With or without offers. When I get one, I'm always polite and try to work with them to see if we can do business. However, most of the times when I'VE been the one writing an inquiry about a lot, either I don't hear back, at all, or they're pretty terse about PURE. (Like I'm bothering them or something.) If they say they want Pure, that's fine, I can usually wait for someone else to put up an item I'm interested in. It's just the attitude of many traders I've contacted or tried to contact that irritates me. I know not all traders are like that. I've had occasion to converse with some who have been VERY kind and helpful, even if ultimately we cannot do business for whatever reason. Although one thing on trade lots looking for Pure... It's never really "clicked" with me why they don't use the Auction house if they only want NP and no items. By definition, a trading post is a place to trade items and yes, as well as currency at times. Bartering, negotiations, all are part of trading. Some people, take such offense sometimes to offers of items with and without NP. Whoops! Guess I got into mini-rant mode. Sorry 'bout that! ^^; Anyway, been playing this game for 15 years and I while I check the TP every now and then to basically do a price-check on a couple items I'd like, when I'm feeling a little bored, I don't do much trading, or auctioning either. lol But don't take it because one or a couple players have had some negative experiences on a part of the site. Neopets users, for the most part, ARE as you've found them, NICE and HELPFUL people. One time I remember especially well. My peophin was once painted Christmas, then he got a random event where he was turned 'Baby' by Boochi and his ray gun. A friend of mine in the guild I'm in, who sadly no longer plays, gifted me a Christmas Paint Brush. I was so touched, it was actually hard to USE it. LOL I've made some good friends on Neopets, It's kinda sad too, at least for me. The guild I am in, used to be very active with a number of people. But, time moves on, people move on, some decide to quit playing for, whatever reason, and some just simply, pass away. 😕 Sorry, I guess I'm just remembering the old days. It's not easy, being one of the youngest in a guild. I've had a number of hiatuses from Neopets up until around the time I joined up here at TDN. The guild's active membership just kept getting smaller and smaller. I think there are 4 of us left who post somewhat regularly. We don't do the LC or MP anymore. Which I don't fully mind, because it was kind of stressful looking for the MP EVERY week. lol Sometimes a couple other members pop-in but don't usually stay. Though it's nice of them to touch-base when they do stop by the guild's board. Hard to believe... I've been playing Neo for so long.. Oh well. It's also somewhat hard to believe I still have interest in it! LOL Anyway, lol please take my post at face value. You'll have good times, and down times, but overall, hopefully your memories and friendships made through the game will last you a lifetime and be pleasant to look back upon.
  6. Welcome to TDNForums! I hope that you enjoy it here! 🙂
  7. Thanks! lol I found out the hard way that PSP6 has a layer limit of 100. With many of the projects I've started/done that have some element of motion to them, I usually work with one main file and put the different positions in different layers, like with the Unlucky Reindeer. However, reaching the limit makes things a bit trickier. 😉 Case-in-point, the only pic I hit the 100 layer limit on and had to figure a different way to finish. I call this one, The Witching Hour. I ran out of layers with about 13 more positions needed for the Witch flying across the sky. So I deleted a couple witchy-layers. Then I made a line that stretched the entire length of her flight across the sky. Like a plane needs to file a flight-plan before take-off, you might say, and then I put markings on the line so I could place the witch graphic into proper place going forward. That line was on 1 Layer. So when I was to the point with the layers with one position for witch's flight ran out. I made visible, the layer with the line and markings, and then on the layer above it, I moved the witch forward and up to fit within the markings. That's how I kept her flying straight, and got away with using 100 layers for a single image. This pic I started back in 2004, as you can see by the watermark, it was about 12 years before I got around to finishing it. All mouse-drawn. Except for the text of course. LOL Used the text-tool for that. 😉 Originally I wanted to make this an animated wallpaper. 800x600 pixels was a more common screen resolution when I started this, but now, since Windows has seemingly stopped supporting animated gif files as backgrounds, or even running them when using the preview function to display them, that ideas dashed. But it was still GOOD to finish this! LOL And it was neat trying to come up with different famous "movie-monsters" to appear in here. lol I THINK the wolfman is my favorite animated portion. His pixelated transformation at the top of the bluff as he looks up at the moon. Man that was tricky! but OH-SO worth the effort!
  8. Actually, the image is 44 layers. lol I made 18 frames from this. I actually had to make a quick little Notepad file to help me keep the order to make the layers visible/invisible straight. LOL Here is a pic of some of the layer-list. The red and yellow giant parenthesis show which layers are the layers that I had to change for each new frame. It doesn't show ALL the layers. lol And some layers, are back-ups (In case I screwed up) and will remain invisible. LOL
  9. Thanks Duma! LOL With the right music and sounds? I can totally see it! XD Kinda reminded me of this Halloween thing I did awhile back! But ON to the new Christmas pic! So, I got this sketched out before Christmas, but I wasn't able to get it all colored, especially the lights, before Christmas. On top of that, it took a few days to figure out what to do with the lights, and how to order the layers and what order to display and hide the layers to change their intensity. This is half-size of the full frame-size. I ran this through animation shop and the program couldn't handle the optimizing the frames as gifs at the full 3300x2550 pixels. LOL Anyway, in total, it's 18 frames on a loop.
  10. I went with the Origami Brush. I looked at the current colors of all 3 brushes at Neocolours, looking at just the default "Happy Male" pose. I liked Toy, though the folds of origami were really cool too. Steampunk, looked a bit dark to see all the detail and kinda looked similar to Stealthy, at least to me. So I went with the Origami. In hopes maybe that will mean that TNT will come out with ways to fold paper into pets IRL. LOL Wouldn't mind having an origami peophin, of course. LOL
  11. Welcome to the forums @happylexie! I've never really played Food Club, but if you can make a lot of NP at it, more power to ya! Games and battling are more my things on the site. Though, I've cut back a bit lately on both. LOL Unless I'm testing a piece of battle equipment. LOL It's gets annoying, even with Quick Stock, to pick out junk items and battle prizes to put into my SDB and leave out the few items I tend to leave in my inventory. Mainly some cheap food and a toy or two. LOL Pardon the little rant, I guess I'm getting a little cranky in my "old" age. LOL 😉 If you take up battling in Neopets and have questions, the battle forum is a great place to get advice. If you are new to battling, here is a link to our wonderful articles on Battling and the Battledome. http://www.thedailyneopets.com/battledome/index/ And here is a listing of all BD Opponents. The CURRENTLY available opponents are under the heading, "Active Challengers". http://www.thedailyneopets.com/battledome/secret-challengers/ I hope you enjoy your time here at TDN!
  12. You've gotten some excellent advice so far. Though without knowing a budget, how much NP you want to spend on upgrading your set, it kind of limits what we can suggest, or makes it hard to narrow down the options. 😉 First of all, definitely get a Downsize! as you've already been advised. https://items.thedailyneopets.com/items/downsize Your Greater Defence Scroll blocks 5 air Icons. It is next to useless for the Giant Spectral Mutant Walein. http://www.thedailyneopets.com/battledome/challenger-giant-spectral-mutant-walein/ For defense, I would recommend Leaf Shield, or Patched Magic Hat. both block some Earth and Physical icon-types. The difference is that Leaf Shield (the green one from Illusen's quests https://items.thedailyneopets.com/items/leaf-shield) can block some water as well, while the Patched Magic Hat ( https://items.thedailyneopets.com/items/patched-magic-hat ) blocks some light instead of Water. Though you really shouldn't need defense for this batttle. Because as Duma, already stated that you should be able to beat this opponent if you use your Ylanas Blasters with a faerie ability like Lens Flare or Throw Pillows. According to the entry for this opponent, starting HP for it on the Mighty or Hard difficulty, is 186. Using 2 Ylanas Blaster and stopping your foe from attacking with Lens Flare or Throw Pillows, should do 189 damage, just enough for a round 1 victory. Anyway, you should consider changing your healer too, upgrading it. 50hp isn't going to do much for you. Since I don't know a budget for your upgrades. I'm going to recommend Velms Healing Potion. It's a game prize, for beating Neoquest II on Normal Difficulty. But you can buy it from other players. It heals 10% of your Maximum HP, which for you would be 55.8 HP, already higher than the Greater Healing Scroll can heal. Although if your current HP in battle goes down to under 10hp, then Velms Healing Potion can give you a FULL heal. https://items.thedailyneopets.com/items/velms-healing-potion There are plenty of good weapons and defensive equipment out there. As for which opponents you SHOULD be fighting. There really aren't any right or wrong opponents. You can either tackle easy opponents, if you're just interested in prizes. Opponents that are more leveled and statted to what your pet is, or if you like a challenge, challenge some opponents that are stronger. If you check out this link, and look under the heading of Active Challengers. You can check out ALL of the currently available opponents for the BD. Some may have to be unlocked under certain conditions, but we have that info listed there as well on each opponent's page. http://www.thedailyneopets.com/battledome/secret-challengers/ If there is a specific opponent that you'd like to fight and are looking for more advice on, feel free to ask. There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable people here to help. Good luck and Happy Battling! 🙂
  13. lol It could've been! I saw a new reply notification immediately after I clicked the "Submit Reply" button, but I was too tired to check it further. lol As Duma said, they all can use any ability as much as they want. I think this holds true for 1-use items unless I'm getting the Old BD mixed up with the New BD. TNT makes the rules, and we have to deal with them. In battle, that can be pretty frustrating at times. Anyway, congrats on your win this morning! Best of luck against your next opponent!
  14. Hi, I don't know if you've seen TDN's battle articles section, but there is a Black Pteri Challenger Guide that is included in that section. Here is the link. http://www.thedailyneopets.com/battledome/black-pteri-challenger-guide/ I think that the guide is looking at things from the minimum needed to defeating the Black Pteri on the easiest difficulty. Unfortunately, I can't stay on long right now to give a really detailed reply. That being said, I would recommend taking a look at equipment that can reflect Air and Dark as those seem to be the bulk of the icon types that the Black Pteri uses. (You can check out it's weapons in the above link, click on them to see their stats). Double Dryer reflects 50% Air and has roughly a 1/100 percent chance of permanently Breaking. Ultra Dark Reflectorb, reflects 50% of Darkness, and ALSO has a 1/100 percent chance of permanently breaking. Both are fairly inexpensive. While scanning the posts, I noticed Duma brought up the Earthen Scorchstone. It really is a good little defensive item. I've used one when I was battling, heck maybe even against the Dark Pteri, I really can't recall at the moment. LOL But if, say, you get in a bit of trouble and think you might lose, and your Downsize! has been used. If you pair one of those reflectors WITH the Earthen Scorchstone, plus whatever Faerie Ability you have available, you should be able to do some damage while you defend yourself. I haven't tried this in the new BD. But if you select a reflector for the first slot, and an Earthen Scorchstone in the Second, I am not sure, but perhaps the Reflector will activate first, and the Earthen Scorchstone will help protect you from some damage from whatever the reflector doesn't reflect back, since it is simply a blocker. It's worth a shot. 😉 Oh, and all 3 of those items I mentioned are under 1,000np on the Shop Wiz. Feel free to play around and experiment with different weapon combos. The 50% reflectors at the Defense Magic Shop in the Neopian Bazaar, ALL have the same conditions, they have a slight chance of permanently breaking. Also, you may only equip one of each type at a time. (So a Double Dryer and Ultra Dark Reflectorb can be equipped at the same time, but not 2 Double Dryers, that kind of thing.) When you're battling on a budget, it's good to familiarize yourself with different equipment and you might just be surprised at how helpful some items, even really low-stat items can be. The 50% reflectors literally helped me eek out victories on a number of occasions in my battling career. Tekkitu the Witch Doctor, Commander Garoo, etc. I'll check back later today to see if you have any more questions. And if you haven't beaten the Black Pteri, I'll see if I can provide some more ideas. Later!
  15. Hi @LekkerLekker89, unfortunately yes, some battledome items are fragile and some are single-use. Fragile meaning they break permanently. Semi-Fragile means they can break when used, but this is not permanent and that item will be back for the next battle. I've copied the quoted text below from our "Introduction to the Battleodome" article, under Weapon Reliability. In our Battlepedia, we mark off the reliability if it is known using these terms. If there is a specific opponent you'd like to battle, or you're looking for some upgrades to your current set, please post either here or make a thread in the Battledome forum here. https://www.tdnforums.com/forum/72-battledome-battlepedia-chat/ And I can try to help you out. I'll need to know your current set plus any "decent" pieces of equipment you have that you might use to switch out when you change opponents. What your NP budget for upgrading your set is. And of course, if you want to battle a specific opponent, which opponent you'd like to battle against. I'm pretty good at "budget battling". I've had a LOT of personal experience with it. 😉 However, it's late where I am, so I need to call it a night. It might be a bit later, like maybe tomorrow evening before I can get on here to answer your questions. Sorry about that. But at least you'll have time to post the info I'd need to help you out. Have a good one. 🙂
