Re: YouTube best quality download

Have you seen this page yet? There are a few options listed there:

  1. Use a website that downloads YouTube videos for you. There are plenty, but make sure to check what the highest resolution is for the video and select that resolution on the website.
  2. Use a Chrome extension or Firefox add-on to download the YouTube video. Just make sure it's downloading in the highest resolution.
  3. Stream the YouTube video through VLC and follow the steps on that wikiHow page to download it. I'm not sure how to change the resolution of the stream, though.
  4. Use youtube-dl, which is a command-line program that can download YouTube videos. I think it tries to download it in the highest quality by default, but you can specify certain formats if needed.

I also found this script, which you can paste into your browser's JavaScript console while on a YouTube video page. It gives you links to different video playback resolutions and formats, although I don't know if it works for every video.

Try out these options and see which one produces a better result for you. By the way, if you're trying to download videos in the best quality so you can take screenshots of them, I recommend opening the video in VLC and going to Video > Take Snapshot.

Back when I uploaded that image, I think I just used the print screen button to take a screenshot straight from the video.

User Page Image

Hey, Nagi. I see that you added an infobox to your user page. Would you like a player card image for it? Even though the classic game is closed, you can still easily generate a player card image using this resource that Penguin-Pal made.

Re: Page syntax

We try to use the following article layout:

  1. History
  2. Trivia
  3. Gallery
  4. Names in other languages
  5. See also
  6. SWF
  7. References

However, if the last 3 sections don't follow that order, don't worry about it. As long as the "See also" section isn't above the gallery or something weird like that, it's fine. For more info, see the Manual of Style page.

Archive

Hey there, when you edit the item pages, please add the {{Archive}} template. For a easier way you can click the arrow next to the "Edit" button, then you click the "Edit Source". Just paste the template in the first line of the page.

Smallview (talk) 19:48, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Archive template

When you use it, a message box will appear. See: White Checkered Shoes.

Smallview (talk) 20:23, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Meaning

As it says: "This article is about something that was for a period of time or is no longer in Club Penguin." The game is closed and pages related to it need to be archived.

Smallview (talk) 20:29, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Oops

I see that an edit you made to the Holiday Party 2013 page a few days ago got caught by the abuse filter. There was nothing wrong with your edit, but the filter stopped you from publishing the edit because you were removing a lot of content from the page and it thought you had a low editcount, even though you had over 100 edits at the time. It's probably an issue with the wiki's caching, and it has happened to another user before. I've published the edit for you, but please let me know if it happens again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

By the way, thanks for all your help lately with updating pages about the classic game to past tense. Old Laugh Emoticon

--Hey.youcp Surfboard Pin 06:02, July 17, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Archived template

Since other people appear to be adding the Archive template when they update a page to past tense, yes. It may seem pointless since the classic game is closed, but from my understanding, the template is now used to show that something is no longer in the Club Penguin universe. Maybe the template should be updated to reflect that.

Re: SWF to GIF

No problem. As long as you still have questions relating to Club Penguin or the wiki, keep asking them. However, if you could tell me exactly what you're trying to do when you ask questions, that would help me answer them.

From the title of your message and the SWF you linked, my guess is that you're trying to create a GIF of the penguin's swimming animation. Aside from the flippers disappearing, the penguin in the loader SWF you linked is actually in the wrong place. Look at the position of the penguin before and after entering the swimming animation in-game. It moves slightly upwards.

I suggest loading the penguin action the same way you would load an item sprite into your SWF. You'll want to delete all the shapes in your SWF as well so that you won't have 2 penguin sprites. Also, make sure to extract the last frame of the penguin action. After loading it, you'll notice that the penguin is Old Blue. If you want to change the color, add the following code to the last line of the ActionScript in your SWF:

function changeColor()
{
   var penguinColor = new Color(doll.c0.body);
   penguinColor.setRGB(playerColors[4]);
}
setInterval(changeColor,100);

That will set the penguin's color to Black. The animation should now be accurate to how it looks in-game. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Re: Fall Fair 2008 Plaza SWF

Actually, I never had the SWF. The Fall Fair 2008 Plaza was only decorated a week after the party started, so people probably forgot to archive it. Anyway, to create the Fall Fair 2008 Plaza image, I rendered and sampled from 3 different SWFs:

  1. The Fair 2009 Plaza - used as the base image
  2. Fall Fair 2007 Plaza - copied the puffle sign and 2 indents in the snow on top of the Pet Shop
  3. Normal Plaza - copied the "Ruby and the Ruby" text on the Stage

Re: Tabbers issue

Here's an excerpt from a technical update blog post from a few days ago:

"We are continuing to look into some lingering issues with Tabber behaviour. Note: due to recent changes in the underlying Tabber code, some pages may need to update to display correctly - however, editing and saving the page (even without making changes) should help, and most pages should update without intervention over the next few days."

Also, some relevant forum posts:

I've used MassNullEdit to purge the server cache for all the main Room pages, and the tabbers appear to be visible now. If you encounter this issue on any other pages, try publishing an edit without changing anything.

Re: Delete an image

I've deleted the image for you. If you need to delete more files, just add the Delete template to the file page and it will be taken care of. Alternatively, if you would like to be able to delete files yourself, you would need at least Patroller rights. Let me know if you are interested and I can add you to this page.

Italics

In two of your edit summaries, I saw you inform me that italics are not supposed to be used unless they are used for things like Club Penguin or Club Penguin Island. However, it is a grammatical rule that titles of novels, magazines/catalogs, newspaper, films, TV shows, and games are supposed to be italicized. Does it say otherwise in the Manual of Style? I don't recall and I am confident that the addition of italics is correct.

Re: Shamrock pin fact

Cool, thanks for asking Screenhog about that. He said "possibly", so I don't think we should add it to the page unless it's certain. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the pin was accidentally added back, given how many pins were accidentally removed early or hidden longer than usual. The only part that surprises me is that UltimateKuriboh claimed that it was hidden in the Town. What was it doing in the Town instead of the Coffee Shop? Was the pin moved to the Town after the St. Patrick's Day Party 2006 ended? Derp puffle

Depth errors

Hey you, have you ever looked at a room swf and saw some sort of weird stuff going on, like a chair on top of a table that is supposed to be behind the table, or a tree thats covering up things miles south of it, or maybe some really crazy mess??? Well that young one is called a depth error. Here I will pass on knowledge known by few, so you can turn a mess like that into something that is accurate to how it appeared in-game. With this knowledge one might be able to fix this Stage play image that has some problems.

First, take your swf and open it JPEX. Everyone has that right?? Next, find a screenshot of the room in-game like this one. Look carefully and one might be able to spot some things in the swf that appear differently from the actual game, such as the walls below the train tracks, the wall by the balcony on the right, and, what might be hard to see, the plant in the bottom left corner.

Once you have assessed all objects that appear to be at the wrong point in the space-time continue, pick one to start, and scan through the sprite list and find its DefineSprite number. Mousing over the object while the name of the swf is selected works too although it might be hard to do when there are many objects close together. Make note of this, and find the DefineSprite of the object it is covering/covered by. For this example, the former will be the plant (165) and the latter will be the vines on the wall (138). Next, go to frames then frame 1 and it will have a list of all objects. Find 138 and 165, notice how the plants depth is above the vines on the wall, making it appear on top of the wall. What you have to do is edit the depth number of object 165 (574) and make it go below 138's depth (567).

However, there are two plants, both with the same DefineSprite, 138, so you have to figure out which is which. The easiest way to do this is change one of their depths to 0, save, view the swf, and see which one just disappeared. If the one you want to edit disappeared, change its depth to below 567, and if the one you have no need to edit disappeared, put it back to the depth it had, and edit the other one's depth. Then save it and you are good to go. After fixing everything else too.

Overly long explanations aside, this can be used to fix any problems in swfs that cause them to appear differently than in-game, although it probably has little use now since I already fixed probably at least 97% (or more) of all depth errors, but maybe it will be of use. Like fixing the Stage swf. Or dont, your choice. Now that I have taught this ancient art, I shall proceed to hibernate.

Blur Rescaling

In addition to Waterski's message about depth errors, some SWFs also have blur values that need to be rescaled (since Kurst SWF Renderer doesn't rescale blur). I see that you've already been doing this, but for more complex SWFs (like rooms) that use the blur effect, you may wish to have a faster way of scaling up blur.

Here is a Python 3 script I wrote that somewhat automates the process of multiplying blur values. To use it, click "Export SWF XML" in JPEXS while the name of the SWF is selected, run the script (which should be in the same directory as the "swf.xml" file you just exported), and use "Import SWF XML" to import "swf-blur-rescaled.xml". After that, save in JPEXS and render in Kurst using whatever content scale you specified when you ran the script.

If you have any questions, leave them on my talk page. :]

Re: Big Wigs constructions

You can add the image to both pages. Add it to an "Other" section in the gallery on the Big Wigs article and to the "Graphical designs" section in the gallery on the Gift Shop article.

Although if you add it to the Gift Shop article, you'll need to add a date range for the image caption, like the other images in that section. Judging by the date on the blog post that the image is from, the room likely had preparations for the Big Wigs catalog starting on October 5, 2007 (which was update day). The boxes were then removed a week later, on October 12, 2007 (blog post).

Also, looks like that section on the Gift Shop article is missing a room image with the Big Wigs catalog icon. You can add that too if you want. MediaWiki Emoticons - lenny mario

Patroller Rights

Hi, Nagi.

Thanks for contributing to the wiki for as long as you have!

I remember you asking me to delete an image for you and asking another admin to move a file for you. You've also moved a few pages, and you may wish to delete the old pages (provided they aren't linked anywhere and aren't useful search redirects). With patroller rights, you can delete/undelete pages, move files, and rollback edits (just to name the most useful rights).

Are you interested in becoming a patroller? You meet the requirements for it, so if you're interested, let me know and I can add you to this page.

Happy holidays,

--Hey.youcp Surfboard Pin 07:10, November 25, 2017 (UTC)

Nope, your current level of activity is good! I've nominated you on the page. The vote lasts for a week, so you should be a patroller by December 3.

Patroller Promotion

Congratulations on becoming a patroller! I've added your information to Template:Patrollist. If I got any of your information wrong, please correct it (or tell me so I can fix it).

I hope these rights will be useful for you! If you have any questions, please ask.

Re: Bot permission

I see that Apj has already added the bot flag to NagiBot. However, he didn't update the MediaWiki pages, update the bots page, or add the bot templates to the user page, so I went ahead and did that.

Also, if you're interested, here are some screenshots of bot replacements (some of which you could make):

These are replacements that Jeserator put together in AWB for updating item articles to past tense. You don't have to make them, but I figured they were worth sharing.

Re: Valentine's Day Celebration free item

Hey, I saw the message you left on Watatsuki's talk page:

Hey Watatsuki,

As you can see in the swf, the Black Bowtie was free during the Valentine's Day Celebration. So what makes you undo my edits?

Thanks,
Nagi123 (talk) 08:16, December 16, 2017 (UTC)

(I've included your message here since it could be deleted eventually. He deletes his talk page and doesn't archive messages.)

I've checked the SWF, and you are correct. The bowtie item was definitely in the Dance Lounge during that party. If I had to guess, Watatsuki deleted the room triggers (sprite 15) from the Dance Lounge to prevent them from showing up when he rendered an image of the SWF. As a result, the scripts that are associated with the room triggers were deleted as well. That's why he couldn't find the script that references the bowtie.

The item was likely there for Server Testing 2005, but the page currently says the event ended on February 13, 2006 (a day before the Valentine's Day Celebration). That makes me wonder if Server Testing 2005 actually lasted for longer. However, unless we have a source for the event ending later, the item should be added to the Valentine's Day Celebration page.

I've added your edit back to the page. Sorry that it was reverted in the first place. Nice find!

About article Construction Sites

Hey, Nagi. I have noticed that you are a very active and major contributor to the wiki. I want to ask about the article "Construction Sites", I don't know what it means by "Construction of the Pizza Parlor" and "Construction at the Ski Hill" it does not specifically refer to why that construction was happening, for the Ski Hill- I assume its because of the Avalanche of 2007.

Re: Re: Construction Sites

Thanks for the answer. But, the Plaza opened with the Pizza Parlor already built and ready to be visited by Member penguins, from what I can recall. So, I'm assuming the thing on the Construction Sites page is a mistake?

To render furniture sprites, you can use this SWF loader, which automatically cycles through furniture sprites (as discussed here). If you need any help with this, just let me know.

Re: ImageShack SWF

Hey!

I'm not sure whether the SWF for this file was posted on any website. I pasted the original URL into a search engine, but couldn't find any website that contained the link. Maybe the website that linked to it doesn't exist anymore and is no longer indexed by search engines.

Anyway, I found that SWF directly on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. However, instead of conventionally browsing for it on the Wayback Machine, I wrote a Python script that uses the Wayback CDX Server API to quickly search for all SWF files archived on ImageShack's old media servers.

Here are all of the official Club Penguin SWFs that I found:

  1. pizza45.swf - Pizza Parlor during Halloween Party 2007
  2. costume0806.swf - June 2008 Costume Trunk
  3. dock43.swf - Dock during Halloween Party 2007
  4. lodge.swf - Ski Lodge during Christmas Party 2008
  5. pinattic.swf - Lodge Attic while Gingerbread Man Pin was hidden
  6. 0410 - Issue #130 of the Club Penguin Times
  7. furniture0712.swf - December 2007 Better Igloos

Unfortunately, out of these files, the Lodge Attic SWF was the only one that we were missing. I was hoping to find more! However, I was happy to find at least one unarchived file.

Expand this if you're interested in the history and process that I used for finding the files

A few years ago, I had the idea of searching through ImageShack's old media servers for Club Penguin SWFs. I wrote a Python script to help automate most of the process, which involved using Selenium WebDriver to open the SWF in Google Chrome (could've used webbrowser.open() instead, but wanted more control, like being able to open files in the same browser tab) and PIL's ImageGrab module to save a screenshot of the SWF for manual review later.

However, there were problems with the process. The automated portion took too long, and some SWF files would open webpages upon loading, which interrupted the process. And then there was this:

[2017-02-22 06:29:43] <Hey.youcp> I even wrote a script for it, but lost motivation after realizing how much weird stuff I had to look through (fall)
[2017-02-22 06:32:30] <Hey.youcp> Maybe I'll resume the project someday (plenny)

I never found a solution to that last problem, but I suppose looking through weird stuff was inevitable given how anyone could create and upload SWF files (and given the nature of the internet in general). ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡ °)

Anyway, I recently revisited the project with a better approach. Rather than opening every SWF in the web browser and taking a screenshot, I wrote a script to download every file (all ~13,000 SWF files), rendered them using JPEXS's command line arguments, and viewed the image thumbnails in Windows Explorer.

Here are the parameters that I used in the Wayback Machine API call:

https://web.archive.org/cdx/search/cdx	  	# Wayback Machine search API
?url=http://img2.imageshack.us/img2/*		# Imageshack URL
&filter=statuscode:200	 			# filter by successful response
&filter=mimetype:application/x-shockwave-flash	# filter by SWF
&from=200508					# starting from August 2005
&fl=timestamp,original				# only show timestamps and links
&collapse=urlkey				# only show unique captures

The "2" in "img2" can obviously be replaced with a loop variable in Python. I used a range of 1 to 999, but "img718" seems to be the last media server with SWF files (or at least ones that were archived).

After finding and downloading all of the SWFs, I used JPEXS to render only the first frame of every SWF, which is usually good enough in the case of Club Penguin SWFs. Here is the command that I ran in a loop in Python using os.system():

ffdec.bat -select 1 -export frame <output folder name> <input file name>

Note: I couldn't figure out how to set the JPEXS command to loop through all SWF files in the directory, which is why I used a loop in Python. I also couldn't figure out how to set the output file name (it defaults to "1.png"), so I just used Python's os.walk() function to loop through all folders and then used os.rename() to rename the image files to the folder name and move them out of the individual folders. When in doubt, Python it out? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The rest of the process simply consisted of manually scrolling through image thumbnails and taking note of any Club Penguin files.

Thanks for your continued interest in the game and its archiving scene.

--Hey.youcp Surfboard Pin 06:30, November 25, 2019 (UTC)

Good idea. I searched through ~5,000 archived SWF files that were uploaded to SwfCabin and found the following official Club Penguin SWFs:
SWFs

Newspapers

Rooms

Catalogs

Miscellaneous

This one isn't official, but the "It is illegal [to plagiarize content from other Club Penguin blogs] and the law will not let it slide" part made me lol

I think the official SWFs that were uploaded to SwfCabin are already archived on the Club Penguin Archives wiki, but you are free to look through them if you want. And yes, I hope to see more lost Club Penguin files resurface in the future. :]
