• We have added an "AG" Registration date/Username profile option. If you add this upon signup we'll be able to verify faster thanks. (If already joined you can edit under profile settings.)

    If you had an account on OG1 you will need to re-register as this is a new start for all.

We've spotted a few people requesting rom/downloads's for retail systems, we'd just like to remind without telling anybody off that we do not support/allow retail data to be posted. If you own retail stuff and wish to sell your original copy this is fine clearly, but not copies.

We have to respect companies and their rights, more so with our goals to become a registered preservation group.

I'm not mentioning any names as stated, just a kind a kind reminder for those who don't understand.

If you have futher questions please PM a staff member, or tag one of us on our Discord.

Thank you for reading :)
ASSEMblergames.com Archive: bug testing
  • 2,148

EDIT: Since posting this we have decided to convert the custom system to XenForo 2.1 as it's easier to manage and enables search.

As announced awhile ago, we've built a database of all AG posts/threads thanks to Alpha and many other AG members who put help in.

This is now live at https://assembler-games.com/ but is only static, i.e you cannot login so no personal data is included nor private messages.

A few sections don't currently work, and the category's aren't shown right in the breadcrumbs, 0th bit also isn't fully added yet but it should be usable. If you find any bugs please let me know thank you!

Avatars aren't currently added, but will be in time. you may get the odd 500 error, if you do just refresh after a minute or so and it'll load. Search features will also be added in time.

Thanks again to everybody for helping!

Regards,
Damien/Demon

EDIT: Known bugs/issues.
  1. Few pages time out due to a PDO bug.
  2. Search is being coded...
Where will the ASSEMblerGames archive be hosted?

With ASSEMblerGames.com going down at the end of the month one of our moves has been building OG, along wth a static archive of the site, we've released a few different types of backups so far, along with others by Nemesis/more to come by archive.org etc.

What have we done so far? We've bought assemblergames.net in auction, along with https://www.assembler-games.com/ the .com being the main site to host the archive.

Alpha wrote a custom Python script to crawl the site and populate a database which'll be hosted on A-G.com once the site goes done. Akira has been writing a front end for it based on the style AG is using currently.

We'll post more as always, just a minor update to the things going on.

We also have new stuff coming shortly, so keep an eye out OG :)

Ps, We've added an option here: https://www.obscuregamers.com/account/account-details to add your original AG username and join date, copy from your profile and it'll display in...

Prototopia.net has merged into ObscureGamers!

Just a quick update to say we've merged Prototopia.net into OG, we didn't see the point keeping two similar based sites up.

All PT Discord private group users will be made VIP here (Very Important Preservationist), and if you had an account on PT all your content should be merged here now.

If you find any bugs please let me know thank you.

Thanks and keep OG great!

Planning for the future (Early morning updates)

As you may have read AssemblerGames is closing, with not much time to plan ahead I decided to run around like a headless chicken trying to put a plan in action. You'd think this is a joke but it's not, I was awake over 24 hours making this new forum and putting plans in action. even my last few minutes awake were talking things through with Bad_Ad84 in bed. ?

So far, all's going to plan which is good! but there's many many issues going forward.

What do we do about about saving AG itself? It's there I'm hoping @Bad_Ad84 can manage to buy the site. But there's the issue that Kevin may refuse to respond and close it still meaning we need a plan B. This plan B was to bring OG back with a fresh start for old and new users alike. Launching it now gives users time to join before the mass fallout of AG going possibly dark. Backups are still in progress of public content from AG, but...

Rest in Peace AssemblerGames, Welcome back ObscureGamers? o_O

Today a huge blow was landed on the community, Kevin the owner of AssemblerGames announced the sites closure within 30 days.

With not much time to plan ahead, I've temporarily closed our other site Prototopia and transferred the PT license to OG. This has given me the chance to relaunch OG which thankfully I got the domain back for after the old owner closed it.

I'm currently trying to archive as much of AssemblerGames as possible and will post the archive here once it's finished. It'll be around 20GB.

I'm not wishing to tread on anybody toes, nor start drama and this relaunch is simply to give the community someplace safe to reside incase the worst outcome of AG really closing happens.

This new OG is being rebuilt from scratch, with community input, so for now it'll be very basic features wise. If you wish to chat with us you can join the OG/PT Discord with the following link: https://discord.gg/dNYnFwp this will give temporary access to the AG-Future room.

For now...
