Apologies if this has been posted before, I scanned the past couple of pages and I didn't see a topic about this.

 

 

DevPro is an implementation by a team of programmers that have created a server and pairing system for the automated program "YGOPro". It's very well done, and they've recently upgraded their servers. There are two main servers, US and EU, and generally on each server you get 400 users during prime time simultaneously. 

 

This is the link to the main site:

 

 

http://devpro.org/

 

 

From there you can find download links to the program itself. I would recommend that you all give this a try, it is a great relief to not have to bring in admins over ruling issues since everything is automated. It is very simple to record too, since there is a replay function.

I personally use it for the ease of playing combo-oriented decks such as Infernity. Infernity is a pain to play on DN due to the numerous combos you go through. So is Gishki, one of my other favorite decks.

I'd like them better if they didn't have a "ME FIRST" additude on uploading every shitty scan we get from V-Jump/Saikyo Jump/Weekly Jump that has no rulings.

There is a rated mode now, the decks played in that section are generally competitive. There's been a steady rise of the # good players, at least in my observations.

Automation brings in a few problems.

One: No shortcuts.
Two: Ruling derps still exist in the form of programming errors. Only now you can't do anything about it in-game, and are forced
to follow the game's code.

DevPro also has an issue with consistency.
Their translation quality has been all over the place. They add cards early without rulings or accurate data. Which leads to problems of cards and combos functioning differently than they're ultimately supposed to, faulty assumptions on behalf of the userbase, etc. There have also been numerous cases of things not working rhe way they're supposed to, either due to a bug or improperly coded stuff. There's a reason Earl and the rest of the org's been keeping the new cards off DN. Especially with all the idiotic hotline rulings, contradictory database rulings and PSCT, and awkwardly worded shit going around these days.

If you're going to use shit that isn't DN for competitive testing, I'd honestly just use Percival's independant build of YGOPro. I've seen much better quality standards placed on it and he doesn't seem to suffer nearly as much from the "We must beat DN" mentality that plagues DevPro and makes them do stupid shit.

I have Percival's build myself for testing over LAN or a VPN. I just prefer the automated aspect of the game rather than DN's open-ended gameplay. DN is a bit frustrating to play at night when there are no admins on and you have to wait 20 minutes for one. I generally can't get any game play during the daytime because of my schedule, and I'd rather not spend it waiting on admins :\

 

 

Getting gameplay on a VPN is only useful with people you know, so if I just want a few pickup games it's either DN or DevPro.

This is my main beef with DevPro. Their YGOPro is easiily the most user friendly I've seen in terms of handling. On the other hand, their "put stuff in" policy offends me, especially with the rulings hell LTGY is bound to result in.

This is why DN needs better means of allowing you to stay in a friend circle.

And we've told DN to manage that.

 

Lack of automation can be coped with: automatic means of playing were always shredded by YVD in the past, which was non-automatic AND ugly.

 

Essentially, DN needs to be a YVD for a post-socialnetwork world.

The programmers from DevPro are capable of fixing card mistakes in a timely manner, though I do agree that they should test their updates more as there are occasional obvious glitches. If you really do not want to play against cards that have glitches, you can just choose to play TCG-mode, which is not an option available for DN for those who wish to play specific formats. As well as how people may avoid the certain card(s) if the glitches are well known.

 

Honestly, If I can get games faster and more effeciently on dn, with faster play, and no probabilities of seeing shitty unconfirmed card text, why would I need this? Its a good idea, but I find dn much more convenient.

 

Have you ever played on DevPro before? Games on DevPro go much faster than on DN. Flash and Shockwave have the tendency to lag or crash, while DevPro can go as fast as 40~60 FPS as long as one player is not stalling as it does not run on shitty Adobe. When using a card that searches from the deck, DevPro only shows you the selectable choices, and cards like Photon Sabre Tiger or Genex Undine that can only search for a certain card will just add it without you needing to dig through the entire deck. Not to mention that the built-in rulings save you time from waiting on admins to resolve rulings with ignorant players.

 

Given that the cards have no glitches, DevPro is also more efficient as a dueling simulator. It helps you practice playing the game properly by recognizing proper chain orders, rulings, and other specific things that are good to know for certain cards. It is true that the cards are not always programmed correctly, but those are only new cards that were not tested before release usually. Every card legal in the TCG that does not conflict with OCG rulings significantly, such as Swap Frog (which was recently fixed to follow the TCG rulings instead of OCG), currently works fine.

 

Of course, I have to concede that DN still has features that DevPro has not achieved yet. DN has the option to watch duels after they have started, where DevPro only lets you watch it before it starts. DN also is better for those with grandpa computers, or using public computers, as DN is browser-based. Since it is also manual, it lets you proxy cards that are not released yet.

 

I however believe that DevPro’s good points outweigh the bad. The extra features such as saving replays of duels, using your own customization instead of the unlockable ones exclusive to DN, Tag Dueling, Anime option, and much more that add more variety to the game. I am glad that DevPro is gaining publicity, and I would prefer if it were a legitimate option for wars so that I would not need to use DN as much.

Easily. You can open two instances of YGOPro and duel yourself via LAN. I do it often to record replays if I can't get a good video off of someone else.

Hold left click to check for card activation , hold right click to ignore all activation pop up. Same can be done with the A and S button.

I know it's in the controls thingy, but the amount of people who don't understand how to chain stuff is still plentiful. I can't even remember how many times people tell me they don't like YGOpro because they can't prompt up their own treeborn or wind-up rabbit. Or that they don't like being prompted to chain everything like maxx "c" is really depressing.

At first i was like "lol noob" cause I'm an elitist jerk, then when someone asked me where it said how to fix that, i literally could not find it. I understand YGOpro is user-friendly as fuck, but i think something should be done about that... Maybe a "Tips" tab in the duel hosting room for people to read while they wait to make it easier to know? I dunno.

Anyway, I prefer Devpro a LOT. Even with the occasional glitches, i get so much more testing in with far less headache, i get on average 2.5 matches done on Devpro per DN match. Only problem is, i like to do most of my Yu-Gi-Oh! Stuff at work, and can't use devpro there... As a result, I'm on DN more often.

Also, to avoid the noobs, try playing TCG, Matches, and of course TCG Matches. Or just OCG, never tried that but i hear that's how people test the new stuff properly. It filters out almost all the super-noobs.

A lot of the "issues" aired in this thread with DevPro are mostly with the new cards, however you won't encounter this when playing TCG, and if they added a new division, "Unreleased", or didn't add unreleased cards all together I think it'd be a fine replacement to DN. I doubt there are many coding errors with relevant stuff that people have been using, another big problem people listed. That being said unless they do this testing OCG decks will be a pain, because you have to deal with stuff that won't be released for another half year.

Personally, I think "unreleased" is a more worthwhile endeavor than anime. Though i understand anime format is pretty popular for casuals.

And yea, i only ever run into problems with OCG only/unreleased cards. I must've done a few hundred TCG Duels and never ran into any problem.

So I came across a complete faggot. 

 

I was just messing around on Dev (because fuck taking YGO seriously) and was playing a Rank Up Utopia deck while he was playing a degenerate Exodia FTK. I go first, have no plays, he goes, does a bunch of drawshit, my turn I manage to spam out a Utopia and a Utopia Victory with both ZW Equips. Leave him on 500 as I end, he draws and he quits. 

 

So I host another game, this time playing Photon/Galaxy. The same guy challenges me, we play RPS scissors three times I win and then he spurts out this.

 

"Wow. What a noob. Why do I have to fight against a nolifer noob everytime? That sucks so hard. Dude, get a life and don't fuck us up".

 

I proceed to kill him in the span of my first two turns with a NGEPD.  Satisfying to say the least. Jesus though, how much of the community is actually like this?  

 

Picture for reference

I rarely see those types of people... definitely less than on DN. And even when you do run into them, the time limit + auto play lets things go smoothly so you don't need to spend much time on them. So it's possible to just ignore them and play, unlike on DN.

I like devpro. I "think" when you go watch your replays it somehow cuts out all the waiting time you spend to make your decisions..My replay seems like 3x faster than the actual duel lol.

 

Also a question for those yugioh puzzles in the offline mode. Am I a bad duelist if I can't figure those out? Can't seem to easily figure out the fairy one..
