So some of you may recall the witch generator from a few years back (2010). There you could add a name and it would spit out some deterministic witch details for you.

Well I couldn't leave it alone and rewrote it in javascript to cash in on this "Web 2.0" thing. I think it will be a big hit; I hope it is "web scale".

I found a bug in the original generator that cut off the familiar list. The new generator fixes this and provides slightly different results.

Give it a try and break it. If something is wrong or missing, post it here and I'll try to update it or make an updated list with better data.

>Fix the terrible data structure for the generator data
What's so terrible about it? Just curious. I'm not a programmer, I just know enough basics to understand source code (syntax permitting) and occasionally make simple scripts for my own use. I took a peek at the js and it looked very clear and functional. Both the data and how you access it.

If anything, I wouldn't have strikers/weapons as properties of nation objects. Also, holy crap you have a comprehensive dataset.

Thanks for taking a look at the source.
My main issue with the data structure is there is a lot of duplication. In the original generator, each weapon and striker had a list of nations instead. It works the same but I'm not sure which way I like better. I suppose if the assets are compressed then the duplication doesn't matter too much.

Most of the data was hammered out on wikia in 2010. It came from the Wiki article that listed the weapons each country used in WWII, and I selected the countries that (at that time) we knew existed in the Strike Witches universe. It does take awhile to go through and update.

I made some recent changes now that some countries have been named:

Bulgaria -> Moeasia
Kiwi (New Zealand) -> Kiwiland
Belgium -> Belgica
Australia -> Australis

The pleasure's all mine. It was clearly written, commented and all that jazz.

To be honest, the data duplication doesn't matter either way to end-users. Github has fast servers and it indeed gzips http requests. The current unminified 48KB data.js is only about 8KB transfer. Shit's lightning fast, yo. All those js libraries are much larger. So choose whichever structure you find easier to update and work with.

The witch generation is also fast enough to run within one frame on any kind of toaster, as long as the toaster in question has a modern browser. If you want to tweak user experience, you could preload the flags (and any other images you might use in the future). Right now they're requested only after the output is rendered, so they will take a short but noticeable time to load.

There's going to be a Mecha Musume panel at Anime Boston today, with SW mentioned in the description. I'll report back later. Hopefully it won't just all be KanColle.
>> No. 7805 ID: 330db08e
Nevermind...I ended up playing a card game with a friend and lost track of the time, and just got to the panel on time. It had hit max room occupancy, so I couldn't get in. I guess that's a good sign.

After several months of hard work, I have finally created the front page for this site that I have always envisioned. There are still a few unfinished sections, but I definitely think it's worth showing off!

Be sure to check it all out, and let me know what you think about our new front page!

It's an old midi of "Control" by T-Square that I remixed using a Sega Genesis soundfont.

So it seems that Alter would skip the other witches and do Hanna instead. It's funny how some people call her familiar a coyote.

Today is March 26, 2015 (at least in Japan anyway)

10 years ago today, on March 26 2005, a new magazine was published, called CompAce.
In it was an illustration column called "Strike Witches: World's Mechanized Aerial Infantry"
This was the first appearence of Strike Witches in a published media.

Conflaturations on the 10th Anniversary, Strike Witches!
Love is alive and well!

I'm so glad it came this far, and congratulations to comp ace too.
Let's all give the Witches lots of support these next 10 years as well.

Since were on the subject, does anyone have any info on the first comp ace volume? Their website doesn't go back nearly that far and I can't seem to find the cover on jp google.

Visual Novel Reader can be hooked with PPSSPP to machine translate the PSP game. I have written a guide for those unfamiliar with the program. I myself am new to the programs, so there are some obvious holes, but it gets the job done.
