As many of you already know, we have projects for this forums to avoid death by rot, keep users involved, push for community effort and invite more amazing people and users in!

The news are as follows:

We are inches close to getting the frontpage for the forum's ready!
We are going to make ample use of social networks (YouTube, Facebook, twitter, Instagram) to promote the most interesting community efforts, arts, pictures, you name it!

We are launching a User's ART Section for all your videogames artistic needs and for showing what you love.

As such we run a roll call! Our users and in some part really skilled individuals, and doing nothing with such skill, abilities, contacts has always been something i was mad about at AG forums.
Thanks to @Damien 's hard work we managed to get things we mods at AG asked for YEARS while never being listened to.

In short we are looking for people that can provide contents.

Name it; GUIDEs for Obscure peripherals, obsolete consoles, hardware.... Reviews of games (someone are already posting them), video contents, people that have betas, unreleased games can provide screens, pictures... People with connections can arrange some interviews.... The list goes on and on.

Also People experienced in video editing, photoshopping, correcting articles, able to get screen captures from various machines, people that can do voiceovers for video, translations from japanese.... The list of people that can be of help is very long. Almost everybody can post here and let us know how they can help!


This will grant the users to access a section on the forums that is hidden from the rest of the forum where all can contribute in making the contents ready, polished and nice enough to be placed in the front page and then pushed through the social networks (facebook, twitter).

So if you thing you can help post below here and let us know how you can be of help. @Damien will review the users and slowly add them to the hidden partso that work can start.

Let's make this place amazing. Let's make it so together.

English's not my first language as for many other users here, so in the roll call we have spell checkers too lol :D

I do have some experience in video editing, I'm not the best by any means but if I can help, I'd love too. What are your expectations?

I also have a pretty solid understanding of SEO that could possibly help the YouTube channel

To be fair your English is really good for a second language. My spelling / grammar isn’t the best. Thankfully I can hide that pretty well these days as most devices have a spell checker lol.

Allow me to start this info sharing: Shadowboots for XDKs and Test Kits are different, are signed with different keys. This means for anyone wanting to play retail games on Test Kits, you'd need to sign that Shadowboot image with the test key (which is unknown) (or reset glitch the system, but at that point, you might as well have destroyed the dev kit, because they're valuable pieces of history, not to mention that at that point, you could just do anything, since you own SB and up.), or you'd have to dump the game, and resign it for retail.


Oh also trust evaluation of boot stages for dev kits is done via signature checks rather than hash checks (since hash checking means there can be only one valid SC image per SB, and the same SB version was often used across recoveries).


and for new people around, yes, dev kits can downgrade. They don't blow any fuses in fuseline 02 or 07-11 so LDV is not a problem.

I'm fairly knowledgable on GD-R(om)s and selbooting Dreamcast games.
I also know my share of Python/C/C++ if some specific need arise in other projects.

I also have quite a few years of experience with the LaTeX typesetting language, if there's need to format a professional looking PDF with internal hrefs and stuff for a guide or something.

I know quite a lots of physics/mathematics too, if there's ever the need to vulgarise stuff like how a transistor works or error correction. (I even used to help some AG user with their Physics homework on the chat)

I have a handful of dreamcast, gdemu, capture cards and such.

I could help with that if you're interested. I know nothing about video editing, but I enjoy doing (admittedly, low-tier quality) streams.

Also, I like writing code for stuff in a variety of languages.

I'm a legend at editing text if someone is needed for content grammar editing.

EDIT: I also run the official Dreamcast GDROM EMU community if you need something from me in that regard.

I can write reviews, edit video, upload them to a tiny youtube channel i a lot of the time don't think about, also bitchute which is basically blockchain video, i can try ps2 dev stuff, I can do all sorts of things. PS2 being my specialty. Most of my videos will be a camera pointed at a screen with the sound usually being drowned out by one fan or another but that's what you get when you're a cheapass like me.

I plan to make more videos about my obscure stuff I haven't covered yet to share. I also want to make a couple videos for repair/modification, though probably low in number. I enjoy editing videos and doing camera work, I just don't have a capture setup so the actual capturing of footage probably isn't the best of jobs for me.
I'm also available for some sleuth work. Paul entrusted me with one of this .rom files for me to research, with a combination of playing the game and contacting a developer I was able to shed some light on an otherwise undocumented game.
I was also tasked with figuring out the proper power supply for the GBA TS2 prototype board. Using my electrical knowledge and also researching the crap out of it I was able to safely determine the correct power adapter and fix the blown fuse on the board from having the wrong one plugged in.

I'm not crazy pro at this stuff, But I do enjoy helping document/uncover obscure gaming stuff, just want to help if I can.

Lots of promising skills! Keep them coming!

Btw can you guys see the art section or is it still hidden?
