    As you probably read here: https://assemblergames.com/threads/this-forum-to-close-in-30-days.71032/, the end of days is upon us, and AssemblerGames will shortly be no more. Here's what you need to know:
    1. Kevin is closing the site for his own reasons. No amount of money or begging will help.
    2. This forum has been doomed for awhile, with no mods, no admin present, and no new members being approved for over a year.
    3. The community already has a new home, and the active membership has already moved over. Join us at http://www.obscuregamers.com
    4. All public content on the site has been archived, including the hidden 0bit forum. Nothing will be lost.
    5. If you want to backup your PMs, now is the time to do it. Instructions are present here: https://www.obscuregamers.com/threa...-conversations-before-the-site-goes-down.288/
    6. Hope to see you all at http://www.obscuregamers.com!
    For anyone who is offended by this post, yes, I'm spamming the forums. You should know that I'm in no way connected with the guys running Obscure Gamers, and I didn't ask for permission, I'm doing this of my own accord to help anyone who might not know what's happening or where to go from here. If you don't like it, feel free to hit the "Report" button, and I'm sure a moderator will address your concerns at their earliest convenience!

    The only downside of OG would be that they combined everything under one Sega forum.
    It would have been nice if they had different forums for dreamcast, saturn, genesis etc..

    But I'm already in :)

    Just hope somebody will take the time to collect all 60fps/widescreen hex patches and make a nice database of it.


    Whats the 0bit forum anyways?

    The 0bit forum is a hidden forum only people who have been here forever are allowed access to. There are some threads in there of note from about 10 years ago, but in recent years it's basically abandoned. I didn't know about it either until it was mentioned by someone else after the site shutdown was announced.

    There's a thread about it here: https://www.obscuregamers.com/threads/assemblergames-backups.23/
    The latest currently available complete backup is from 2019-06-04. More backups have been done since then though, and probably will continue to be as close to the forum going offline as possible. There's talk of hosting a backup on a webserver (as static content of course) once the site goes offline, to make it easier to find.

    You can sort by the prefixes to filter out the various consoles if that helps
