About / Thanks
DelugeRPG is an online game where you can catch pokemon, trade them and even battle them against other players. The game was initially based on a lot of features from PokemonCrater.com, but has expanded a lot since then.
Below are the websites, communities and people without which this game would not have been possible:
For our maps, we use tilesets compiled/created by the following people:
Sixth Gen sprites are courtesy of Smogon XY Sprite Project. (If you're good at digital art or animations, do consider helping them out complete the missing sprites). A few pokemon formes are taken from Project Pokemon's ORAS sprite dump.
Users who have helped edit sprites for use on the site (shiny/back sprites):
Background images are by TopHat from PLDH. They are available for download at PLDH's Gallery section.
All The Players, for all the feedback and suggestions, and sharing this with friends :)
We also use Glyphish Icons and Font-Awesome on various parts of the website.
We are hosted at Linode.com and use CloudFlare to speed up and protect the site. We use ElasticEmail to send mail. Our Chatrooms are hosted at LucidChat.
Free and Open Source Software
DelugeRPG heavily makes use of Free and Open Source Software. You can too. Checkout Wikipedia or OSalt to find FOSS alternatives to the commercial software you already use.
Here are some of the Open Source software we use to run the website:
For development, I've used gedit, Geany and Atom text editors for all the coding. GIMP was used for any image-editing. The maps currently being used were made with Tiled. Sprite variants are made with Phatch. We use GitLab for code management.
We also use the following Libraries on our website:
Our Forums run on phpBB software and our wiki runs on MediaWiki.
If you've ever wanted to donate to this game, please donate to any of the above software instead. That will help those wonderful people maintain and provide the software free of cost, which in turn helps millions of sites like ours.
