Not sure if someone has posted something like this already or not, but I'll try posting anyways. Since the creator of PO's replay viewer appears to only actively care to Pokemon-Showdown rather than attempt to fix the site, even though there were claims of just reduced activity, it appears that it won't come back up anytime soon unless there's a legitimate update on the situation from him. To alleviate this, I believe we should fix up our current, but flawed, client replay viewer. Even if aesoft gets fixed before our replayer gets fixed, it wouldn't hurt creating our own usable, independent replayer. I know some of this stuff is probably being worked on already, but here is my list of stuff that I think should be added/changed in no particular order: 1. Battle Speed - The most important part in my opinion, as the current battle speed is only dependent on the amount of time it took to make those turns in the actual battle (ex. it took you and your opponent 20 seconds to make a move in a battle, so it takes 20 seconds in the replayed battle to do the same thing,) making it very inconvenient for recording or just viewing in general. Being able to pause, reset, and change/skip turns would be good as well. 2. Showing Turns on Main Screen - Another important thing which will be good for recording, letting you record the actual battle screen rather than adding the side bar chat in there. 3. Minor Additions - This includes showing names/nicknames, stat boosts, hazards, etc. to where you don't need to hover your mouse over a pokemon or something to do so. 4. Bug Fixes - There are sometimes incorrect damage calculations, statuses/fainting of the wrong pokemon in the team preview, etc. Granted I could have probably just posted stuff like this on the report bugs forum, but I'm adding this to the list anyways. Spoiler Start of turn 27 The foe's Empoleon used Ice Beam! It's super effective! FSM lost 282 HP! (103% of its health) FSM used Focus Blast! It's super effective! The foe's Empoleon lost 81% of its health! The foe's Empoleon fainted![/HIDE] 5. Sprites - This includes adding animations. Having different sprites according to gens would be cool, but with how the earlier gens only showed parts of the pokemons' back-sprites, I'm not sure if it would look that great. The sprites could also be a bit larger to fit in the screen better, but that's just me being nitpicky. 6. Moving Outside Of Client - I think to actually allow the sharing of players' battles, I would suggest making the replay viewer moved to a part of the PO site. 7. Screen Dimensions - I think it's just me, but the dimensions of the battle screen aren't the best; it looks like if it's recorded and cropped for Youtube videos, the final product will look stretched compared to the original. However until I actually record it, I can't confirm what I just said is true. Although most/all of my listed suggestions are probably difficult to handle, I really hope these are all looked into to benefit the client as well as the YT channel.
