Hey helma, I made a Strike Witches Character Sorter:

Some of you may already be familiar with tohosort and its english translated version
So I used their source to make a sorter for witches.

Data is ripped from strike witches wiki. There's 151 witches for now, so sorting absolutely everyone takes about 600 rounds. No images yet, but I'm gonna need a 120x180 image (probably portraits by Humikane) for each witch who has been drawn.

Let me know if you have comments, feedback, find any bugs, etc.
Expand all images

Here's the original Japanese witch sorter
But I guess you didn't waste your time, since your sorter has some things the Japanese doesn't, like the ability to exclude units, and more witches.
>> No. 6400 ID: 6d8120
Yeah, my idea was to make an updated english-language version of that.

I used the touhousorter as a base simply because it has better code. I'll probably translate the remaining japanese source code comments at some point, so anyone with cursory web development knowledge can easily continue this when I'm gone.
>> No. 6402 ID: 4187b5
Ok, new project, Strike Witches pokemon sprites and subsequent game. If they can make touhoumon, we can do witches...mon

This is really cool. Recommendation: Maybe an option (possibly default) for picture + text? Since the pictures only have katakana or kanji for the character names.
>> No. 6405 ID: 185c55
this was fun to blast through. Exactly 501 battles and my top 3 didn't change from the iza-yoi sorter.

Images definitely need populating but this is great so far.

Title text has the romaji name. (Hover mouse over the images)

Also, the current pictures are placeholders. I just took them from the old witch sorter, which in turn took them from elsewhere.

>Images definitely need populating
I would appreciate help with this!

Ideally I'd like to have simple cropped 120x180 Humikane-drawn portraits for all witches, like pic related.

If you want to make such a picture for any witch or know of Humikane art for a witch still lacking a picture, post it here.

You keep saying this like you're trying to delay it as long as possible to provoke someone into doing it for you.

Exactly that happened. Here are the karlslandic witches that have fumikane portraits.

Thanks, I really appreciate it!

>You keep saying this like you're trying to delay it as long as possible to provoke someone into doing it for you.
You're exactly right about that! I knew the community could help, would enjoy doing so AND do a better job than I would. Your images are now in use.

Sorry for being a lazy bastard. orz

Your courage inspired me to fix the existing files excluding 501st JFW, I'm still pondering if I should use the anime character sheet images.

77 images!
>> No. 6413 ID: 6d8120
also worth mentioning: out of those, inagaki mami, charlotte lueder, kitano furuko, friederike porsche and etou toshiko are not drawn by humikane. their images are taken from their respective mangas instead.
>> No. 6416 ID: c94d2b
>This info would probably be more useful if I told you which witches already have images:
The existing ones have a lot of compression artifacting that nags at my autism. Would it be too big of a tragedy if I didn't worry about duplicates when gathering portraits?
>> No. 6417 ID: 6d8120
I'm glad someone actually cares about image quality!
PNGs are certainly better, so please go ahead. I'll just losslessly optimize them to squeeze their size to about two thirds.

(I went for minimal filesize because the host is slow and the sorter works better without caching. But I guess it doesn't matter whether the file is 4k or 40k once the server finally gets around to sending it to the client.)

>But I guess it doesn't matter whether the file is 4k or 40k once the server finally gets around to sending it to the client
I suppose it would if you have a data cap on the server, but I'm not even sure if it will get enough traffic/month to exceed any reasonable cap.
>> No. 6419 ID: c94d2b
Looking through the list, this only has 2 new portraits: Inufusa Yuno and Kashida Isami
>> No. 6420 ID: 6d8120
Bandwidth limit is 10GB/24h, so that certainly won't become a problem.
It's just that the image serving feels sluggish to me, but that's probably due to no-caching and can't be helped.
>> No. 6421 ID: 18addb
In both the original touhou sorter and the original witch sorter, the middle buttons are functionally identical, so they're kind of redundant.

http://tohosort.comoj.com/ (newer version of the english touhou sorter) has a handy undo function to replace the other button and it also uses external image hosting (you had trouble with image hosting?), check it out.
>> No. 6422 ID: 6d8120
I think someone on /a/ thread (you?) also wanted an undo function in case of misclicks. Or something along those lines. Guess I'll add that.

I'll keep the images hosted locally for now, I doubt imgur (or any other service) would be noticeably faster.

Nooo! I was adding images for the remaining witches, aiming for at least 100, but ran out witches with pictures at 98!

So, only 53 witches without pictures remain. I don't think that number is going to considerably shrink anytime soon, but I know for sure that Humikane has draw at least the remaining Typhoon Witches (Kawaguchi Fumiyo, Rosalie de La Poype, Galina Kostilev and Bronislava Safonov). I just couldn't find good pictures of them.
>> No. 6442 ID: c94d2b
How married are you to the idea that all the portraits should be Fumikane art? No doubt, you could find portrait-worthy art for many of the remaining witches.
>> No. 6443 ID: 6d8120
File 137993297581.jpg - (64.49KB , 417x800 , tabigarasu_aurora.jpg )
It's just for consistency in artstyle. If there's no Fumikane art, you gotta use something else. Many Africa witches and some other manga characters already have their portraits taken from their respective manga.

However, I doubt the remaining witches have any official art, most are mentioned-only in sources like world witches and god knows where. My information sources are mostly the character pages on http://www37.atwiki.jp/strike_witches/ and http://strikewitches.wikia.com/

I've seen original fanart for some of the remaining witches, but that doesn't always turn out to look anything like the official. Example pictured: tabigarasu's old Aurora Juutilainen.

I finally decided to address these issues by 1) adding very obvious name tooltip on image mouseover and 2) making a simple image preloader.

That's Carla G. E. von Rosen on right, so not a new witch at all.
Don't know about the left one, she doesn't seem to be any existing one from her name, might not even be a witch in the first place.
>> No. 10054 ID: 6b9b05
Witch on the right is definitely Von Rosen, flicking through my copy it looks like the the girl on the left isn't a Witch, just a photo-journalist trying to get a scoop on the 506th.

The sne.jp domain I was freeloading on has died. A shame, the sorter was still getting some witchy traffic mostly through social networks. The sorter itself is still hosted but the domain is gone.

Hey helmadmin, does your hosting package include free subdomains and would you care to take this relic under something like sorter.helma.us?
>> No. 14271 ID: 537779
Yeah I'm pretty sure I can do subdomains. Worst case I could just host it on normal helma.

Semi-related, but recently I came across the website "Tiermaker" and it seems to have a few pages for sorting Witches! The biggest was this one, which has Strike Witches/Brave Witches.
