Hi all, As has been anticipated for a while, AssemblerGames will be no more soon. It's unfortunate, but we've sort of known this was going to happen sooner or later. At least we now have a deadline to get out and we won't just wake up one day with an error in our web browsers saying that we can no longer connect. I am creating a thread for this to keep this sort of discussion for our sub-community in this one thread so it doesn't get posted all over in every thread. To preserve everything that has been built here for some time, we have two primary issues to deal with: 1) Backing up the wealth of knowledge that has been created on this board over the past two decades 2) Migrating the community to a new home to make sure we are all still in contact with one another and so that no one misses any new stuff To the first point: For a while now I've been backing up and archiving important Dreamcast-related files and materials to my personal storage, but of course there's still a vast wealth of information in here that now has to take an extreme priority. I am going to start to copy things from this message board and enter them into the wiki at DCEmulation.org. I am lucky in that I have a LOT of free time on my hands as I am currently away from work and should continue to be for the entirety of the next 30 days I have. I am completely free aside from taking care of some easy freelance IT work for a client of mine and fulfilling domestic obligations to my household for my partner. Some have said they are going to do a straight backup of this board with a crawler, and that's good, please continue to do so, don't rely solely on me! To the second point: I am willing and ready to accommodate members and all discussion over at DCEmulation.org. In the past, discussion of hacking and sharing any materials related to commercially released software or official devkits has been shunned upon over there, but this will now change. Sega has shown that they are respectful to the hobbyist/hacking community from a legal standpoint, and it has been nearly 20 years since the console's marketable and profitable heyday. After discussion with other admins, we have agreed to lax rules and allow pretty much anything that is not outright piracy of retail games. At the moment, DCEmulation is probably best known as a place to go for homebrew DC programming, and we also host the official Sylverant Phantasy Star Online message board and the official Reicast message board. I am willing to restructure the boards and change things in order to accommodate the tastes of members here in the interest of preserving this community. That aside, I also know that there will likely be many of you moving over to Obscure Gamers now that Demon has brought it back in the wake of Assembler's announcement. That will probably be a good place for discussion too. Please post if you have any thoughts/concerns about this or any other ideas for us to go forward. Sorry if this post seems spammy, it's never my intention to spam/advertise my own site, but given the news some discussion has to be made ASAP.
