New Comics

461 posts
Hi everyone, it recently occurred to me that, with the recent long delays in implementing new comics, people might miss their long, long awaited comics going live. One contributing reason for such confusion is also because nobody knows what the hell the site admins are doing. So I decided to start posting my progress reports here.

I'm afraid the idea came to me a bit late, so there are numerous comics implemented whose names I have forgotten. If you're waiting for a comic that isn't on this list, go search for it anyway (look on the suggested list first). If it's mysteriously vanished, drop me a line (NO, you CAN'T have my prrre... I mean my e-mail. Do it in the forums).


No worries was split into three entries:
*No Worries: One Offs
*No Worries: Strips
*No Worries: Extras
Web Designer Comic
Not Safe for Work Comics
Raw Fish
Insert Life Here
Therefore I am
Clockwork Game
Republic Domain The comics on the frontpage are two weeks (three comics) ahead of the dedicated page. This entry captures the *latest* comics, and connects to the frontpage as it should.
Weird Adventures in Unemployment

Furthia High has gone through a restart, on a new site. I've implemented both comics:
*Furthia High
*Furthia High: Old Canon
LadyStar: The Fury of the Venom Legion This comic is over, there is a prequel/sequel going on at:
*LadyStar: Jessica Hoshi and the Ajan Warriors
[Error: Comic #2057 not found!]
[Error: Comic #2060 not found!]
Destination Downfall

NOT Implemented. If you're waiting for one of these comics, please contact me.

Aloof - Gone
Steam Pirates - Gone
Cartoon du Jour - Linkfarm

[Error: Comic #2029 not found!] - This site contains very few comics, and there's no way I can see to separate them from regular posts. If you want to follow this person's blog, you should use RSS to get all of them. If you only want the comics, I must wonder why. It's kinda like reading a book by staring at the cover. If someone really wants to argue the case, please contact me. Otherwise I'm going to delete this entry.
Null Knowledge - Recently, in the forums, I said that despite my lack of understanding of JavaScript, no JS site had yet defeated me. That, of course, jinxed it. I can make neither head nor tail of the script on this site, mainly because it's too simple. As far as I understand, it shouldn't work. I now appeal to any and all authorites on the subject to bail me out.

Re: Null Knowledge. I wrote this email to the "Contact Us" link on the left, but figured I may as well write it here too.

Saw your post about Null Knowledge on the Comic-Nation main-page.
Took a quick look at their scripts, and it doesn't seem too complicated.

The website loads "./javascript/select_v03.js?maxweek=4" in the header.

Inside select_v03.js, there are a few variables of importance:

var maxweek = 4;
var maxyr = 9;
var maxmon = 26;
var minyr = 8;

var currentyr = maxyr;
var currentmon = maxmon;
var currentday = maxweek;
var currentFileMon= 0;

When the file is first loaded, it sets the current year/month/day to the maximum year/month/week (bad variable naming, but blah). Then, in the loadpics() function (which is called in the body's onload), it sets the document's main image to

document.images['main'].src= 'images/nullknowledge/'+ (currentyr) +
'/' +(currentFileMon) + '/' + (currentday) +'.gif' ;

I would suspect, to check for updates to the comic, that it's sufficient to check for updated values of the variables maxweek, maxyr, and maxmon inside that script (while simultaneously checking the script tag in the header for these variables, since he seems to like to set it in the src URL).

Hope this helps.

Let's hope that it's enough to just check the variables in the javascript file, because that's what I just implemented.

Wait, I was looking for a call to an external script file. How the hell did I miss that?

Hmmm... Meeowth, I didn't even know our system could read .js files. My browser can't, anyway.

Thanks alot, both of you. I learned a lot.

*Duel Class no longer exists on the web.
*There doesn't seem to ba any comic at [Error: Comic #2183 not found!]. Does anyone know any different?
*[Error: Comic #2238 not found!] Seems to be under permanent reconstruction, and the comic images have disappeared. I've created a scheme for it, but I don't know how well it will hold up when (and if) the comics go back up. It should at least alert you if there's any changes to the site, so keep an eye on it.
*Same with Port Faith. Where do you guys *find* this stuff?
*[Error: Comic #2284 not found!] has been submitted before, but I'm sorry; I've done my due diligence on this site, and can't find *anything* to latch an update scheme onto. If one of the other admins wants to have a go, and is brighter than me, they may find a way. Otherwise I'm afraid this comic will just have to stay off.
*Little Hominids has vanished.
*Dog's Days of Summer has concluded and gone to print.
