Incidentally, can you make an emulator using C++?

FINALLY we can talk publically about the new server. If you look back a few months there were a couple of little clues, if you knew where to look. wink.png

Thanks to everyone for your work on the wiki and hacks and etc in general, and we want MORE this next year! I know I'm gonna make an effort to finish scanning the rest of my materials as well as a couple of other bits and pieces I have planned for the year - you all need to play your parts, too!

Here's to an awesome 2010 =P

Let's see what I said back then.

This really will be the start of a new era, hopefully things will never be the same again.
Speaks for itself. Things won't be the same.

QUOTE (nineko @ Nov 15 2009, 02:35 AM)
Usernames in the A-L range are safe. The ones in the M-Z range, on the other hand...
This one was obviously a joke. I can't believe some people thought it was real. It's the M-Z range the safe one, you fools! *runs*

QUOTE (nineko @ Nov 15 2009, 04:43 PM)
After the change, this site will be a lot closer to Sonic, and somehow less Retro.
Closer to Sonic = faster; less Retro = newer :3
This was deliciously subtle.

QUOTE (nineko @ Nov 15 2009, 04:50 PM)
Enough with the merges, it's time to clean the dust and bring out the trash. Literally. We will get rid of a cancer that has been cursing our lives way too much.
Bye cultnet, bye slow server.

After all I was honest for the most part smile.png

Can we get pictures of this new server? =P
Sure, if you donate. $10 for a shot of the case, $30 for a shot of the internals.

Paypal money to [email protected]

Where are my pictures? ;-)

THE BIG CHANGE: WE ARE MOVING TO OUR OWN SERVER


A big hush-hush for that?

Also, you're using a standard-upper-class-desktop-computer as the Retro server?

Anyway, CONGLATURATIONS

Has it ever occurred to you that a server, in essence, is a "standard-upper-class-desktop-computer" with just a few hardware additions that are useful in a multiple-server environment?

Anyway, congrats, Retro! 7 years, and hopefully many more to come.

Oooh...all I'm taking so far is C++ and Visual BASIC.

If anyone else has any other ideas on how to contribute (besides donating, I already splurged on pre-ordering the new Bentley Jones album and rechargable batteries for my Wii-Mote), with basic C++ knowledge and very basic Visual BASIC, lemme know.

Would you like to donate $2,000 to Sonic Retro so we can buy a "real" server?
