    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Greetings future adventurers! My name is Jinxie Juniper and I am the official Sylestia world guide! I was instructed by GM Faiona to come over here and introduce you to the world of Sylestia and what it has to offer.


    What is Sylestia?

    What is Sylestia you ask?! I forget that you humans can be a bit daft! Why Sylestia is my home world! Sylestia is always looking for adventurers to help with its problems, as is most worlds of course! Sylestia has ten different regions ranging from beautiful grassy meadows to snowy tundras to volcanic landscapes! I am from the best region of course, Umbra Forest!

    [​IMG]


    Who lives in Sylestia?

    Sylestia is filled with mythical creatures and people of all types. Throughout Sylestia's many towns you can find elves, fairies, gnomes, and of course humans. You can also find Sylesties, trolls, dragons, and who knows what else while exploring Sylestia's vast regions.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    What is a Sylesti?

    That is a great question! Sylesties are the powerful inhabitants of Sylestia. They can be very dangerous when untamed and are not to be trifled with! Fortunately though, skilled adventurers have learned to tame Sylesties and create bonding relationships with them. Having a Sylesti as a companion is also a fearsome form of protection against other dangers in the wild.

    Sylesties come in many different species and every species comes in many different variations and colors! Adventurers that are skilled enough to tame and bond with their Sylesties use them for many different deeds. Some are used to battle foes while others are used for exotic breeding or entertainment. However you utilize your Sylesties is up to you!


    [​IMG][​IMG]


    What is there to do in Sylestia?

    There is plenty to do in Sylestia for an adventurer like you! You can explore the vasts regions of Sylestia to improve your Sylesties' prowess, find powerful artifacts, collect tremendous wealth, and make new allies! You can also become a breeder to create the most extravagant Sylesties ever seen. In the future, the Kingdom will be organizing various contests where you can pit your Sylesties against mighty challengers! Or you can pass the time by playing games, visiting shops, or just simply making new friends!

    When can I go to Sylestia?

    Unfortunately, the portal to Sylestia is closed at this time. However, GM Faiona has informed me that it should open within a matter of weeks! You can go to http://www.sylestia.com and click on me. I will add you to a special list that gets notified once the portal is running!

    In the mean time, you can test out Dr. Felix's Sylesti Preview Generator here: http://www.sylestia.com/previewgenerator/

    If you have any questions regarding Sylestia, I will be happy to answer them for you! I hope to see you in Sylestia soon!

    No but seriously guys, they've been having me do a lot of artwork for them and their site is honest to goodness awesome. My favorite thing is the battle system, and ahhhh it's just really RPG-esque and cool.

    It really seems an interesting game, I'd like to play it in the future but sadly at the moment I can't load many of the pictures on the site. I don't know why, I tested with Firefox and Explorer but it's the same. Could it be a server problem since I live far away from the US? It never happened to me with other games or pet sites.

    Even in the Sylesti Preview Generator, I can't see any of the six pets! :(

    Hmm. Can you see this image: http://www.sylestia.com/imagebuilde...md2c=ebd9a0&md3c=e4bcd7&maturity=648&size=500
    And if you don't mind, could you take a screenshot of what the home page looks like? Also, what's your operating system and browser version, and are you using satellite internet?

    We're not quite sure what would cause this, but we would like to fix it for you (and anyone else who has the same issue)

    I can't see the image you linked in the post above, it says "it contains errors".

    I have windows 7/64bit on my pc, latest firefox (but I also tried explorer) and no satellite internet, a kinda good connection usually ranked A by pingtest.
    Thanks for your help! :)

    PS: I'm still new here so I'm not allowed to post links on the forum, but I have uploaded two screenshots on imgur dot com showing you how I see the homepage and the generator; you can add these two codes to the main site address in order to see the screens:

    Reposting this here 'cause I'm not sure if you're allowed to us the PM system yet or not. And in case anyone else has any ideas on how to fix your issue.

    I am very sorry you're having issues. Quite honestly, this is very bizarre and I'm not really sure what could be causing it.

    Two more things to test:
    1. With the link I gave in the previous post, try viewing it and then refreshing the page a few times (If you haven't already). It's possible the cache is outdated and could be messing things up. Although, that really wouldn't make too much sense, but it's an easy test so worth a shot lol.
    2. What happens if you just leave the page sitting there for say, 5 minutes? Do the images eventually load or once it stops loading it just permanently stops. I noticed in the one picture that the Draeyl (Dragon thing) started to load. Also, do the images load the same everytime you refresh the page? Or sometimes one images shows up, but not others.


    It's just very strange that your browser is saying that the image has an error because the error would be coming from the PHP code. And I have no idea why one person would be getting PHP errors but not others. I tested it on Chrome, Firefox, and IE and all of the images load fine for me and no errors. So it's really weird lol.

    I did just recently update the code for the images which I'm wondering if it somehow caused a caching issue with your browser (if you had visited Sylestia in the recent past). And that would be solved with a few page refreshes to get your browser to update to the newest scripts and such.

    But if you could try those 2 things above and let me know what happens, that'd be great. Thanks!

    I am allowed to use the PM system and I messaged you back; let's continue there in order to keep your thread free of my issues' spam! ^^
    Thanks for the help anyway!
