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

I've sent out the participation prizes to the entrants, but I still haven't judged the entries. Unfortunately, that's going to have to wait for a while, for my family was unfortunately stricken with tragedy. My stepsister contracted COVID-19 from her mother-in-law who contracted it, unknowingly, dur...

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

Doing a whois on the domain, I believe it was updated on 2020-10-10, so it looks like it is a no-go.

If I'm wrong again, let me know, of course. But this time it looks like the autopay did go through.

Re: Asking for help to save our home

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. I'll kick in what I can and I'll spread it around to hopefully get some more traction going. Hopefully, you'll be able to reach your goal sooner rather than later.

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

Grabbing the domain won't give us access to any DCS YouTube channel, as they are tied to specific e-mail addresses rather than domains.

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

I'll buy it if it comes up for sale, and upload the database to the server that runs Cydoca.com . As long as I keep the forum closed once it is uploaded, it hopefully won't be a load on the new server if I do. I've got a good host based in the UK with unlimited bandwidth, but I really wouldn't want ...

Re: Did we lose Dreamcast-Scene?

Are all the infected links plugged? I unlinked all I could find, there's not much more we can do without FTP access. And considering that PHP is woefully out-of-date on the DCS server, it's not going to be easy to keep it from getting hacked and link spammed in the future, I'm afraid.

Sega's 60th anniversary

Sega's celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, and set up a website for it. Most of the fun stuff is only in Japanese, including a really neat Segata Sanshiro-related promotion. For those who don't remember, or don't know, Segata Sanshiro was a man in a karate gi who forcefully made people pla...

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

I posted this in the discord server, but I'll repost it here too: I'm not sure if there will be another contest this year. I wasn't planning on it, as I was originally planning on doing another one in 2021 or so, but I might start one this year and end it sometime next year. The coronavirus changed ...

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.
