So, uh, Sorry I've been kinda dead on the radar here, but I [re]found that site with a ton of early game sprites HERE it is. Early design Decarbria cannot be unseen! D: lol. I also never want to see another harpy again XD This is an epic resource, hope it can potentially be useful here ^^;

The present webhost is firewalling all the ports normally allowed by commercial ISPs. So there's no way to access the YaCy server until we lease a new webhost. This development will probably speed up that eventuality.

We don't have to necessarily move the website immediately to the new host. It should be possible to request the YaCy search results from the new webhost, which would then in turn request the results from the YaCy server, then get back to this (present) host with your search results.

Just for the record,

The downtime yesterday was not our fault. The webhosts infrastructure was on the fritz all day... no news yet if there are any lasting adverse effects. Everything appears normal.

I'm going to have to delete everything (start over) once I figure out the right regex to keep the i18n pages (foreign language duplicates) out the index. This technology is fairly state-of-the-art, or at least it's an application with no other alternatives other than Grub (now owned by Wikia -- and not to be confused with GRUB!) ...so I'm having to work fairly closely with the development/early adopter community, which unfortunately is almost entirely German.

Alright! I think I finally have a possible alternative to Google on the search front:

[I decided to remove this link to avoid attracting spammers to the url which will be included server side in the future]

Go ahead and try that link. This is basically a home Google I was able to setup thanks to YaCy. If all pans out, in not too long I can make the website search bar fetch these results and format them too look like they belong on the website like the wiki pages.


PS: Hopefully it will be faster after I slow down the crawler a little (right now it's building an initial index)
Ooh, that looks really good! It's nice to see we have a reliable search alternative now :D [and sorry I'm not to helpful with this sort of thing ^^;]

On an up note the website is back, and its future is more secure than ever. However, what little creative interest we've been able to sustain since the first downtime late last year is now (after our second, and what should be final, downtime) at an all time low. In fact there appears to be no party interested in contributing new content to the website.

That said we still have administrative and editorial staff eager and available to assist any fans who would be interested in helping to expand the website. A long term commitment is not even necessary. As always, just drop us a line in the website <acronym title="Bulletin Board System">BBS</acronym> and we will see that your contribution however great or small is made available to our readership.

The website will not be going anywhere in the meantime, and we still field a lot of traffic everyday. Generally about 300 people visit the site about 1000 times a day like clockwork. We are still the premier source for in-depth Megaten info in English. We know the site could be a much better resource, but its up to Megami Tensei fans everywhere to see to that.


This host's response time can be a little slower than the last. And has a knack for not returning from long jobs such as complex searches. On the other hand we can now host large files including video. Our stay here will be only temporary however. A very feature rich server with the works is slated to host the website. Unlike previous transitions this move will be seamless, and open up a world of possibilities. We will retain the use of this present server for hosting unlimited downloads which will then no longer compete with or impede the performance of the website.

I am personally repairing the site to all its former glory and hopefully more. However my enthusiasm for these labors is only so much as the creative outlook here. We did loose a number of files, but have backups on hand which will find their way to our new host in course. A few features are probably broken. But will be back in time. Worst of all Google has forsaken digitaldevildb.com. Taking with it our ability to search the website. We are seeking alternatives for indexing its content. If you can run a YaCy service for us (you can do this from your home broadband connection) please get in touch. Google dumped us like all websites it owes their first 100$ and considers insignificant. The official reason given by Google is "invalid clicks" which supposedly occurred during the downtime (that is when the website was inaccessible!!) ---no further comment. Unfortunately this is Google's <abbr title="Modus Operandi">M.O.</abbr> ...and we learned it the hard way, after investing a lot of time and expectations into Google. From now on the website will officially boycott Google and Hostpapa.com who acted unethically like all too many webhosting companies and is completely responsible for all of the havoc wreaked upon this website not caused by Google. With Google's 100$ goes any definite means of financing the website. If you would like to donate/advertise your Megaten website on our site please don't hesitate to seek our audience. We have it in our todo list to setup a proper system for doing so.

Last but not least, we've become a reluctant branch of the "Megami Tensei Wiki" at megamitensei.wikia.com. Time will tell if our branch will or won't become the dominant of the two. The decision to do so was completely necessary by the most basic of ethical standards. Two out of three sysops (including myself) made the decision to do so with the encouragement of the third and Wikia staff. We will hopefully find the time and initiative to document these circumstances along with the rest of the wiki. You can edit the wiki at wiki.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/. This branch of the wiki is now the source of content retrieved by our wiki pages at www.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/.

I have always wondered where the Megaten worldview must come from. That is precisely, my bet is originally MT2 must've had a primary source. That is some inspiration the game makers were working from in concocting the scenario of the game. It's obviously Gnostic/Luciferian/Zoroastrian in bent but not in any classic/dogmatic way. That said I don't give the game makes enough credit to expect them to have synthesized all of this stuff on their own, so I've always wondered what their main text/pov might've been. I mean we're talking about people who lifted all of their demon designs from the "Dictionnaire Infernal".

Well, the other day I came across this group from the 60s which seems to be almost at the heart of the way people think about Luciferians and Satanists / occult groups to this day.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Process_Church_of_The_Final_Judgment

This cult has all the unique hallmarks of Megaten's central thesis, and even had classes of people like SMT that were considered to be predominantly (by birth) either Jehovans (Law) Luciferians (Chaos) Satanists (Dark) and Christians (Light) all welcome within the cult. Like conservatives are Jehovans, socialists are Luciferians, bikers/nazis are Satanists, and the peace-nik hippies are Christians (identified with Christ)

^Of course the original MT2 need not have all these complications and still does a much better job of embodying these themes. The cult also believed in an apocalyptic/road warrior future from which they would be the only survivors, and was really influential all around the world.

It's surmised Charles Manson was somehow tangentially "inspired" by the philosophies of this group and another cult which bare significant resemblance to Manson's own life/thought.

The male leader of the cult believed/insisted he was Christ. But if anything he was upstaged by Manson himself. If I was a Christian personally I'd probably believe Manson is Christ. He is the perfect Christ archetype and hell, who says Christ is supposed to be lovable. If god/the gods is/are really sophisticated Christ would be the ultimate societal outcast / persecuted just like Manson. I guess we'll just have to wait until Manson dies and see if he rises from the dead or not rainbow


PS: Even if you don't dig Manson (you dig) he's technically not guilty (or even charged) with anything, and has really been wrongfully imprisoned / denied parole just for the hell of it (should sound familiar to Christians)
