Support creation of Propilkki 2 -game here >>


 
Version 1.0.6 full installer available 8.11.2013
To make the installation on latest version of PP2 more easy, download page contains now full installer of the latest release 1.0.6. Obviously it can also be used to upgrade the older game version.

Upgrade to v1.0.6 available 22.9.2013

ProPilkki v1.0.6 update is available:
www.kalassa.net/propilkki2/download_1.0.6/PP2_download.php (~1 MB)

At least v1.0.3 is required to be installed before this update (can be found from download page).

Updates v1.0.4 - v1.0.6 have been publicly available for testing on discussion formum, change history below:

New in version 1.0.4
1) Fix for fish fitting/not fitting from the hole in network game. Behaviour is now identical for the host and clients. Big fish are now practically always fitting up from a bigger drill hole (6").
2) Support for Wiimote controller in fishing.It is recommended to use Wii Motion Plus to get more precise rod movements. First establish the Bluetooth connection between Wiimote and PC, then start Pro Pilkki 2. If controller is deteced, it is noted on the startup screen. Note: Wiimote might not work with all Bluetooth adapters.
3) Fixed /game -command issues related to game types at night
4) Fixed /lures -command parameters. Command is now allowed from autohost.ini
5) Fixed several crashes with help of automatic bug reports.

New in version 1.0.5
1) More fixes for fish fitting/not fitting from the hole in network game and occasional missing fish from the final results.
2) Support added for embedded Motion Plus (new Wiimote controller). Note! User is fully responsible of everything when using Wiimote-controller with Propilkki. The autohors of the Propilkki are taking no responsibility of possible damage/harm caused to involved computer, Wii-controller, player and/or environment.
3) Fixed non-standard HTTP messages and improved the compatibility with firewall and anti-virus software.
4) Fixed too bright fishing rod (issue in 1.0.4).

New in version 1.0.6
1) Fix for fishing rod moving itself with Wii Motion Plus.
2) Fix for lost fish in extreme network jamming situation.



Changes in network records list 11.9.2013
As the player and fish amount in the ProPilkki network records has been growing, at the same time the service has become frustratingly slow. This has significantly increased the waiting time, when the competitions end and results are sent to server, and player rankings before and after are calculated and sent back to players.
 
Following changes have been made to network records server side (11th Sep 21:10 GMT+2):
- significantly optimized the case when player rank is not improving (this night have a big impact)
- removed calculating of the previous rank, only the new rank is reported and shown in the game
- removed calculating of the rank in "all lakes" list, only the rank improvements from the current lakes are shown in the game.
 
Let's see what kind of effect these changes have. If they are not enough, the next step will be removing the week list and finally the season lists, leaving only the all-time-best. This can't be done on-the-fly and will propably mean service break in network records.


Package 1.0.3 available 16.4.2013
Hopefully now the difficulties with release 1.0 are finally solved. Full installer of version v1.0.3 is available under "download" section.
 
Summary of changes in version 1.0.1  - 1.0.3
1.0.1
- Fix for showing records hosts correctly in the host list when joining the game
1.0.2
- Fixed occasional game crash in the end of the competition. The problem occured only when hosting the game without player character (as guest).
- Host list sorting fixed according to "info"-column (records hosts first)
1.0.3
- Game server crash fixed when browser fetches the player list


Package 1.0.2 was full failure. 15.4.2013

Pro Pilkki 2 v1.0 released 11.4.2013

Pro Pilkki 2 release for this spring is here - version is finally 1.0.
Main new features are burbot fishing (night) and network records. Official network records list is here:
www.kalassa.net/propilkki2/P2_records

Please note that only the results played on official network records hosts are qualified for the records list. We will approve these trusted hosts individually, giving priority to hosts running actively open games. If
we have invited you as a records host, you will get a notification, when starting Pro Pilkki 2. In that case you can apply for the records host form "Player setup" inside the game. "Player Setup" is also the place to initially create your account for the network records.

Enjoy the fishing!

New version of the game is under construction 10.11.2010
We are currently creating a new version of the game (0.85). It will look visually much better than the older versions, but there are still a limited number of added new features. New version contains support for wide-screen monitors and higher resolution. Moreover, some of the oldest graphics in the game are also updated to look better. Of the new features, there will be at least 2 new lakes added, but we try to do total of 3-4 lakes for the release. Time-schedule for releasing the game is still open. The most probable dates are during January and February 2011.



ProPilkki v0.8 is released! 16.4.2010
Long wait is now over! Propilkki 2 v. 0.8 is now released! Development work has lasted the whole winter, but now it's done and the version is available for everyone. This time there are plenty of new things to enjoy. More details can be found from the release-notes of the game, but here are the main new things in short:
- 2 new rods
- 10 new fish species
- 6" drill
- 3 new lakes
- 5 new baits
- 6 lures more in use in network game
- new graphics
- improved cheating preventions
- fixed old bugs as "forever drilling"

New version will unfortunately clear the old records, but they are stored to separate text-file for your own use. There are several reasons for this, the biggest one is that the game has changed over the time so much that part of the old records cannot be beaten anymore with the current game version.

Team Procyon wishes you enjoyable moments with Propilkki2!

10 years of virtual ice fishing 4.11.2009

Pro Pilkki 1 was published on 5th of November 1999.
It means that exactly 10 years has gone since the very first release of Pro Pilkki 1. This really is the milestone worth of celebrating!
Because of this remarkable event, we decided to release a PP2 update v0.751. Among with some fixes it re-introduces a lake from
past that many of you might remember as one of the Pro pilkki 1 favorite maps. It is Savilahti.

Update can be downloaded from: (1.5MB)
www.propilkki.no/P2Updater_v0.751.exe

For the Finnish speaking folk, there is document in the discussion board about the history of making the Pro Pilkki, including some
previously unpublished pictures. Text is in Finnish, but pictures might be worth taking a look.
http://www.kalassa.net/keskustelut/uutiset-ja-pelin-kehitys/10-vuotta-virtuaalipilkintaa!/

We wish you an enjoyable playing moments and we want to thank all the players from the past 10 years!

Over 75 000 downloads! 7.8.2009

Propilkki 2 has been downloaded now over 75 000 times from our servers!



Propilkki 1 ver 1.0 was released about 10 years ago 16.7.2009
The first release of Propilkki 1 ver. 1.0 was at 5th of November 1999. Soon after that, creation of Propilkki 2 was started. Procyon Products is planning some kind of celebration for this 10 years anniversary party.


Beta-tests of version 0.75 will start soon 9.7.2009
Beta-tests of the next Propilkki version will start soon. There are some new features included to the game, like lots of new sounds, possibility to drill to the bottom of the lake, possibility to drill several new holes at once, team-messages, advances in game connection system during disconnections, 2 new lakes (1 more under construction), fixed and clarified game-logs etc etc...

Possible release date is still hard to estimate, but we try to finish this version during early autumn before league(s) and other international competitions will start.


Development of Pp2 v. 0.75 beta has been started 12.3.2009
We have now officially started development of the new Pp2 version. Next release will be smaller update than our previous release. Its most important content will be bug fixes and some new features to the current contents of the game. We hope also to add something new to the sounds and voice samples. There will be major updates to the single player game, but those may not be released in versions 0.75 or 0.8.

Releasing date is still largely unknown. It might be finished at summertime or even at the beginning of autumn. It depends a lot of the scale of updates we decided to add into the game.


Sweden won World Championships of Pp2 2009 18.2.2009
World Championships of Propilkki 2 -2009- have been played now. Sweden took the gold medal again. Latvia fought well and took silver. Finland was 3rd. Final's "lucky loser" Ukraine was 4th.

Congratulations for all players!

World Championships of Propilkki 2 starts today. In the first league will play Finland, Estonia and Ukraine. Tomorrow (Tue) there will be league 2 matches; Norway, Russia and Latvia. At the next week there will be matches of league 3, where last years champion Sweden plays with Belorussia and Lithuania.

Results of the matches and discussion about it could be followed in our forum (English section of Propilkki 2).


World Championship tournament of PP2 is approaching! 20.1.2009
World Championships of PP2 will be played soon! Now we have 9 teams registered into the tournament. The final deadline of signing in into the tournament is 26.1.2009 12:00 A.M. (time of Finland). Teams registered into the tournament currently are: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Time-schedule and "elimination leagues" are determined after the sign in period is over.


Service crashed.. 16.1.2009
Again we had very high amount of users at the same time, when pp2 version was finally released. Service crashed almost immediately after news-update, even we dont have pp2-version in our own server at all!

Please be patient. Everyone will have own copy sooner or later.


v0.7 is released 15.1.2009
Installer is now available on our "download" section.
Have a great springtime with new Pro Pilkki 2!

Release is near.. 15.1.2009
Estimated release time is late tonight. We hope that this time-schedule will be true.

We also want people to ignore all other downloading links, which are not shown in our home page. It is possible, that these "strange" links may contain viruses or something harmful material. Please wait until official release, because it is the only way to have clean and official version of Propilkki 2 v 0.7.


Towards v0.7 release... 14.1.2009
Version 0.7 of ProPilkki 2 is ready. We are now only waiting for the actions from our web admins and mirror site owners. Most propably the release will happen tomorrow, 15.1.2009. Be patient still for a while!


Propilkki downloaded more than 300 000 times! 9.12.2008
Propilkki has now been downloaded from our servers over 300 000 times! Wintertime seems to activate players every year. Thanks for all once again.


Few more screenshots 26.8.2008
Here are some new screenshots of the next version:

1) Powerlines at Jormuanlahti.


2) Some smaller powerlines near roads.


3) And finally new rod, which has stronger line and harder bite indicator.





Development of Pp2 next version is under process 12.8.2008
Because of short and rainy summer in Finland, team Procyon has already started to process next version of Propilkki 2 game. Now we have finished i.e. one more rod and powerline graphics object into the maps. Powerlines will enhance the realism in graphics greatly. New rod will offer to you a stronger line, but its sensitivity with smaller fishes is not so good as in default rod. Stronger line will also drop a little bit interest rate of fishes to bite smaller lures. But who cares, because it will help you to catch some larger lunkers than ever before! There will be also some new species available, which might be lake trout, bleak, blue bream and vendace. Lakes will also contain a thing called "anti-hotspot", which is used to spread shoals to a larger regions than now. This will help clump-effect in places like Jormuanlahti (between spar buoys) and Niemisjärvi (the edge of deep in lower lake). We hope, that this effect will improve the realism sharing good fishing areas to a longer range. Player might need to search good fishing places from larger area, but in multiplayer game this will give possibilities for more players than now. Furthermore, if this function drops levels of catches, then we need to restock more fishes into the lakes.

Lake creation has not been started yet, because first we need to update our lake editor to support all of these improvements listed above. Editor will support also depth function, which will show fishing depth to you while playing the game. This depth bar might be available in 0.7 version, but this is still uncertain. This depth bar will also contain a function that enforces the lure to come up from the hole in the ice. It is needed, when you have a big fish biting and time is running out. Probability to catch that fish is very low when this function used, but at least you have a possibility to leave the hole in time and manage to hurry to the weighting zone. Fishing from different depths (surface, middle) will be available in later versions, but support for it is under construction.

Have a nice autumn!

- Team Procyon


Propilkki 2 v. 0.6 has been released! 29.4.2008
It is finally released!! You can find by clicking "download" button.


Thanks for all of you players! Have fun!


Release of the game is getting closer! 28.4.2008
The game will be released very soon. If our admin manages to connect internet during this night, then the game will be out tonight. If not, then there will be delay for tomorrow (Tuesday.. at least).

Please note, that if some other site (which is not mentioned in our homepage) is sharing Propilkki 2 v. 0.6 beta, it might be fake and contain anything (incl. viruses). So PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE GAME ONLY FROM OUR HOMEPAGE, SUPPORTING FORUMS OR OUR OFFICIAL MIRRORS.


Beta-testings nearly finished! 21.4.2008
Beta-team has nearly finished this test-period. We are currently working with the last version before releasing (0.59). This version should be the same than 0.6. Only some clear new bugs are going to be fixed (if they even exists).


Beta-testings of v.0.6 will start soon! 6.4.2008
We have nearly completed next version of Propilkki 2 (v.0.6 beta). We will start intensive beta-testings soon. After this period, we do some bug-fixing and normal short test-episode also. Then this 0.6 is finally ready for releasing. Approximated release date is during April!


Propilkki 2 beta v.0.6 latest news 14.3.2008
Here is short listing about updates, what we have done. Lots of work still needs to be done before releasing.
1) Playing in windowed mode
2) Post-join-feature
3) 4 new lakes (Hossalaislammet, Kivijoki, Haapolahti,
Siikavalkeinen)
4) Speed cheat detection and info and possibly auto-ban
5) Text Copy-paste (ip for example)
6) Some new graphical objects
7) Widening of reserved area of a hole and player
8) Lots of minor bugfixes (i.e. some 3D device halted -errors are now fixed)


We have also promised to create i.e. slippery (no snow) ice -effect, new colours
for players, some improvements into info-screens, team-cups etc.. We have to give up
some of these, because time schedule is too tight. Possibly i.e. new rod, more species,
more voices etc will be available in later versions.

We look forward to release next version before end of April. It is our plan, but
it will not be absolute deadline. Beta-testing and bug fixing might take more time
than expected. We will do our best!

---------

We have also opened an account for voluntary donations. More information is available
in Finnish, but we will give more information in English in the near future.
