SingTel is back up, and I've managed to optimize The Global Terminal and such over the days. I will be restarting the distribution shortly, maybe tomorrow or the day after. The VGC12 Shiny Larvitar (and perhaps others, if I have time) will be added into the distribution then.
Looking at the stats for distribution, it appears that there is a massive lack of demand in the current 5th Gen RNG'd/Shiny Pokemon. I would thus like to appeal for RNGers to donate 5th Gen Pokemon for distribution.
The Event server has hardly seen any activity. I will be trying my best to add as many more events as possible into it. If possible, I would like people to tell me what they would like to see removed from the event server, and what they would like to see added.
As of now, I have made a few changes to the thread. The images are now hosted on GrumpyBumpers instead of Rotasig, and the YouTube video has been changed to a more updated one. The RNG'd/Shiny Pokemon list for 4th Gen has also been updated fully as space constraints ceased to be an issue. If anyone has any other suggestions for the thread, feel free to post away.
Thank you for visiting The Global Terminal!
I believe I've done all the connection things right, but I'm confused about how to select the Pokemon I want.
I'm assuming the numbers to the far left of the Pokemon names have something to do with this, but where do I enter the numbers in?
Server is STILL down. I will most likely bring it up later once I'm done making quite a few changes to the system.
Sorry guys, The Global Terminal won't be up by today either. I'm going through a LOT of renovations, I promise! Expect MANY more Event Pokemon, especially the newer ones.
Also making something that will help me manage the servers faster and better.
Thanks Arphage and Clarent for helping me!
Thanks Arphage and Clarent for helping me with Event Pokémon Selection!!!
Note: PokeCheck links in the first post had to be broken for my updates. I'll fix them tomorrow or when I have time.

Thread Update ~ 17th March 2012
- I have obtained various new Events, namely, the Kyushu Train Events Batch 1 (Swampert, Blaziken, Sceptile), the Fukuoka PC Groudon, and the VGC12 Shiny Larvitar(s) from Germany and France).
- That being said, I would like the public's opinion on how I should distribute these, if ever.
- Distro 3, the "New" Distro, is meant for New Pokemon only, for easy access to collectors aiming at a certain Pokemon.
- If all of these Pokemon are added to the "New" Distro, it could cause overpopulation, thus defeating the original purpose and intention of the "New" Distro.
- Please post your suggestions and thoughts on this matter. Thank you.
This is just me speaking, but I think its really hard to get specific (or all) Pokemon from a DNS IP when it is both set to random distribution AND has dozens on each server.
I think, optimally, 20 or so per DNS IP is best.
That's partly why I've never connected to your server before, except briefly at the beginning. It is just intimidating, and I might get 1-2 things I want and 10 I don't.
I have been getting the Pokemon you're distributing, but usually, I just download the pkm file from the PokeCheck links and use PokeGTS to send it to my cart, rather than connecting to your server. It's a bit lengthier of a process, but that way, I'm more likely to get what I want.
As for events (and I don't see why not to distribute any event, personally), I think it makes the most sense to pretty much only distribute the newest and latest events, and then take them down after a month or so. And then put older events back up if anyone requests them.
Any chance on some RNGed Haisty/Mild/Lonely ExtremeSpeed Pikachus?
My PokeCheck Stuff:
Stuff I got myself.
Togepi Breeding Project
Dream World/Global Link Pokes
Stuff from other peeps:
Level 1 RNG IV bred
RNG Wild Captures
RNG Dream World/Global Link
Cool PokeWalker Stuff
Box of Berries and Items
If you want any of these mons without the Classic "clone" Ribbon, just download the pkm file and use PokeGTS
Having just 20 Pokemon in one server wouldn't be using the servers to it's full potential, I don't think.
The point of The Global Terminal is to allow people to get events/all sorts of Pokemon that they cannot normally get, I didn't actually intend it for people to aim and get a single Pokemon. I've tried to make that slightly possible though, with the introduction of my 3rd server.
Good suggestion on the events though, about a request system. I'll have to think about that when I find the time.
As for RNG'd events, I usually have one of my RNGer friends (Volcorana or Arphage) sending me their RNGs. I myself can't RNG (bleh) and can never find the time to learn how to. *nudges Bond697*
dude you need to run a server similar to pokecheck ie individual people get the EXACT pokemon they want. that would be cool but you could still keep up the old servers
The point of The Global Terminal is not for someone to swoop in and get an exact Pokemon. I've been running it this way since I started doing this 2 years ago.
It's for people to go in and get a completely random Pokemon, not technically for their collection. Makes things more fun when people work for stuff IMO. I am trying to make it easier for people to get a certain Pokemon, as you can see from the creation of Server 3.
Thread Update ~ 21st March 2012
- Distro "New" 3 is down, because I'm probably going to need it for my own use for a bit. I'm going to be experimenting in eventually making things a little more permanent. Hopefully.
I'm trying to run HyperGTS on my computer but it just shows an error code as shown in this video.
Can someone Please help me?
Wow. WOW. HyperGTS. That's old. Go to the Misc subforum and download ShinyGTS.
