Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

If it's still redirecting to spam, check the .htaccess files MetaFox. They likely have set rules to make most pages redirect to spam The Wordpress directory .htaccess seems to be fine, but I can't say the same for the rest. Without FTP access, checking and fixing the .htaccess files will be tricky....

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

Luckily just updating the Wordpress installation did the trick, and Dreamcast-Scene is back.

I'll contact Chris and see if I can find out what CMS he used to see if we can get the database hooked into the website again, but at least it's working as it was before the hack.

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

I was afraid that might happen. The site was operating on fumes as no one has had contact with Max for years. I managed to grab the entirety of the site's SQL data a few years back. I tried to host it on Sourceforge but the SQL data is huge (over 1GB) and it caused the SF subdomain to be unresponsiv...

Re: Dream On Contest: Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dreamcast - 1st place will be professionally pressed on CD

Thanks for all the entries, and thanks for understanding when I've been away. I've been a lot busier with the Red Cross than I thought I would be, and as I only have had access to a Red Cross computer that blocks gaming websites, I apologize for that. I'll be going through the entries soon, but to m...

Re: Dream On Contest: Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dreamcast - 1st place will be professionally pressed on CD

After discussing it on the Dream On discord channel, the contest deadline has been moved to December 31 at 11:59 EST in order to give people more time to create their games.

Re: Dream On Contest: Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dreamcast - 1st place will be professionally pressed on CD

Sorry about not responding. I've been volunteering with the Red Cross, and that took up a lot of my spare time in real life. As Protofall mentioned, I answered some questions on the Discord server , but I'll answer the questions here as well. I've never written a game. Maybe now could be the time. C...

Re: Dream On Contest: Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dreamcast

eeeeennnteresting. Are there any specific rules for this jam, or is this a contest for any homebrew that runs on Dreamcast? No rules this time around (other than to make sure if you use assets that you didn't create, to make sure the license allows you to use them). Other than that, just have fun. ...

Re: Shenmue HD is really happening this year!

Yeah, it does. I apparently got a message crossed somewhere along the line. I'm glad to have the games on modern platforms, but the tank controls are still awful.

At least they have right stick to look, but that's not much of an improvement.

Re: Shenmue HD is really happening this year!

I preordered this on Steam, if just for the new controls. I really loved Shenmue and Shenmue II, but the tank controls were awful.

DreamCon 2018 at the RetroGameCon in Syracuse, NY on November 3 & 4

I advertised the 2015 DreamCon at Con on the Cob in Richfield Ohio too late. This led to no one, at least no one of whom I was aware, from the Dreamcast scene showing up. I want to hopefully remedy that this year, so I'm advertising it early. I just put in a reservation for a table at the RetroGameC...

I've decided to resurrect this project, with a change in that it's more generalized. It's now the Internet Media Archive Graphic Exchange.

Re: GLdc - Call for testers!

Sorry for the lateness in seeing this. I've been toying with some GL stuff, and I've recently gotten into Dreamcast again, so I'm excited to see improved libGL support on the Dreamcast. I'll try to it with a few of my different prototypes once I get a DC toolchain up on my MacBook, as this is my mai...

Re: My yearly anniversary post.

Hey. :) Long time no see. Hope life's been treating you well.

Yeah, it's weird looking back. Heck, I was younger than you are now when I signed up for this site. :D

I was 19 when I first got a Dreamcast, 21 when I first started programming for it, and 22 when I first joined these forums.

Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

Thanks, mankrip! I think we already have some very nice rewards to offer, and there is plenty of reason to back the project. The key to success is to get more people to know about it. I'm afraid the addition of extra rewards will likely do very little to that effect. Did you purchase any Facebook a...

Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

It looks awesome! Plus, it's a game in that combines some of my favorite genres (adventure, platforming, and fighting). I can't until it's released. :D

Secret Characters in Alice Dreams Tournament

I just got my copy of Alice Dreams Tournament, along with the code to unlock the game version of me:

Did anyone else back at a tier high enough to get a character, and would like to share their code too? :mrgreen:
