I was looking through some of the older doodles and saw that a lot of them were done on shippainter. I was just wondering: whatever happened to that program?

Shi-Painter, as well as other Java-based drawing programs, can no longer be (practically) used in browsers. They were made with old versions of Java, which are now blocked for security reasons.

Ah. Thank you for explaining!

If one wants to use Shi Painter, then it can be downloaded as a standalone Java applet.  And there are still a few Oekaki forums that have it there.  But good luck running it - you'd have to use an older browser.  Plus some of the versions of Shi Painter out there won't even work with the current version of Java.  And it's a pity - although Blush is not bad, it doesn't quite have the same feel as Shi Painter.

Yeah, java became obsolete  that it render all the applet unusable to the point that it cripple the site as a whole since people like that tool so much that when its gone people also left... now its dead without a notice.. but hey at least we manage to gather around somewhere and still hangin' out.

this site adapt some of its tool to follow the flow of time and relevancy of the technology that could still be utilised, and theres dedicated people that willing to take care and keep the site alive. Would wish this place to thrive longer in the future
