your amazing man! I dunno why i think this is so cool, but its some of the weirdest and coolest news in weeks! Keep up ALL the good work.

heh and the camera u were refering to is the Dreameye. I actully have one and am thinking of getting a couple more to be able to sell cheap at DCpawn shop after I pay for all my books and stuff for school. Its a pretty cool piece of hardware. Comes with a Headset mic too, wish I had that in the days of Alien front!

What is Singstar?
Singstar is a kareoke game which rates your singing (measuring your voice pitch I believe). Its one really good party game anyway.

The Mic also came with Alien Front Online, but I seem to be the only one who knows that.

Wow, this is really cool news. I've been kicking around some ideas for a totally off-the-wall game involving the gun and a mic. I was mightily disappointed when I learned that there was no mic support in KOS, but I knew some wunderkid would get it working pretty soon. Excellent is all I can say.

Excellent.

It's not quite that easy.

Wait, does it mean that the only reason why there isn't a Quake port with netplay is because I'm a lazy ass? :oops: :P

Neat, very good work. :)

I also have a brandnew and sealed Japanese DreamEye here floating around, if someone wants it to reverse-engineer it, feel free to send me a PM.

I somehow missed this. That's awesome BC. Nice to see new hardware being supported in KOS. Great work.

I forgot to add that its not tied into the network stack either, because lwIP's PPP implementation doesn't seem to like the dc modem much. Gimme a while, I was working on fixing that situation (by writing a new network stack).

I'd love to reverse engineer that, but I sadly have very little time anymore for programming. So, I'm not gonna volunteer at the moment.
