^ good idea, did it
We are planning for the future here; we are considering a front page with articles, reviews, interviews and such, along with youtube and social channels use. I think we could make use of your generosity and create some really interesting articles.I offered to buy AssemblerGames and really wanted it to stay. The more I am seeing people join and post here, I think it's best that this site is here and Assembler is closing. Assembler has some information that no other site has, I see this site replacing it. Sometimes, some things need to die, so new things can grow. AG had it's up and downs, but after the last "down", I never saw it getting out of its funk. Long term members stopped posting, emotions got of control, and bad actors ruined the site.
I've been sitting on a pile of betas I've been wanted to share (by posting videos), but never could really get motivated enough to do it. AG had become stale right after I had bought all the stuff to make quality videos. With that said, this site is the fresh air the proto community needs. I don't want this site to be a 1:1 clone of AG, I want it to be the next chapter in the proto community. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
Good idea. I should do that at some point.It may be best to suggest that everyone on AssemblerGames change their sig to this,
"Sad AG is closing? Sign up on the new Obscure site that's taking its place, https://www.obscuregamers.com"
That will help people that aren't' aware of all the craziness that's going on (drive-bys, ect)
Welcome! We added a Misc section for lesser known consoles and prefixes for the 3DO and 3DOM2, you can find it here: https://www.obscuregamers.com/forums/misc-programming-development.23/ thanks! please let me know if any other prefixes are needed.
EDIT: I do have one question. IS there anything important in hidden parts of AG that needs to be saved still or we good? Like stuff from the 0th bit section? I was given access there years ago but never posted much in that section.
Any chance of FM Towns, Marty, A'can?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being "just" a gamer - it's what we all have in common. Personally, I got into the technical side because it's my line of work and I like retro stuff which frequently needs repairing.
