    Yeah. Last time, they completely banned any uploading of prototypes.
    Then they just shut down the community.

    They are the only prototype community with a worse track record than assemblergames. I hope somebody creates a better home for us after AG dies.

    Then what is even the fucking point of that site? If you can't post prototypes then why even go to all the trouble to make the site a look alike to this?

    Thanks for saving me from wasting my time registering at that site. Dreamcast-Talk is the most lax site around now basically for my needs as I am primarily a Dreamcast super fan, although I do own all 3 Xbox versions as well as a Jailbroke PS3 I love playing all the time. They allow any uploads for Dreamcast at least. Not sure where the other guys will go to with the PlayStation, Nintendo and Xbox communities, let alone the other obscure systems... I mainly go to emuextras.com and PSX-Place for my Xbox and PlayStation needs.

    How about you guys go to the site and read the rules?
    Stop spreading false information... enough drama in this site...

    I can't believe this is happening. I've learned so much here and I also met a lot of genius people. It will be a great lost, not only for the homebrew-scene but also for the internet in general. It will miss a place with knowledge built from people from all around the world.

    I'd be very happy if I could contribute for this not happening =/

    This AGAIN??? It's every year. I agree, sell the forum/DNS. Completely unfair to not give someone a shot to use it.

    Trust me. I tried getting in touch with Kevin. He'll never get back in touch. Though like what @PixelButts said, can he at least give the torch to someone who's still passionate for the site and for the sake of everyone, its future. 23 years of valuable members, information and much more will be for nothing if it collapses due to Kevin's stupidity. Take care.

    Kind regards,

    What do you mean?
    Obscure gamers has already shown their willingness to implement rules that kill the community. Why would I trust that site again?
    The rules allow posting pre-release games now, but who can say what the admin team will do tomorrow?

    This is sad. He should just sell the site. I know that's been said already several times, but I just want to support the idea.

    I mostly lurk.

    However, yeah terrible news really. Lots of really great info for Xbox/360/Dreamcast over the years and also where I found one Shane McRetro and Yakumo (Retro Core) that both have some of the absolute best stuff covering... well, obscure games on YouTube. For me this was the place to find the murkiest and... obscure subsets of video games and I've never found anywhere near the quality of some of the community overall.

    Again, you clearly didn't go to the site. It has started from scratch now. Read the rules, you'll see it's not what it was.
    And in any case, welcome to the internet; forum rules usually change based on (among other factors), legal claims. It has happened here in AG several times, in case you didn't notice.
    Finally, if you don't like or don't want to got to OG, it's your choice; for now I haven't heard anyone else taking the lead on starting an alternative for AG... you still have time though.

    I'm not trying to force anyone to OG, but they have an offer for all former Assembler members called, 'Refugee'. This entitles you to all the features that VIP offers, but you get it immediately. Everyone should move past the negatives of the forums, every forum has their flaws, but like pool7 said, it's changed. They've started from scratch. Take care everyone.

    Kind regards,

    It would be a great shame to just let it all get deleted. I would vote to sell it. If it's a name/reputation thing then why not sell it, but agree to rename it something like that, so that the content can be retained.

    Hi mathieulh,

    Have a talk to Morphic and place a screenshot of your account (sometimes they can find it without one) and it's as simple as that. I hope this helps!

    It's a phrase meaning that if he can't have the site, no one can. Imagine a kid visiting his friend's place, and they're playing soccer. The kid isn't winning and so instead of losing, he just quits in the middle of their game and takes their ball, heads home, without letting their friend win.
