STATE OF THE RETRO 2010

Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Scarred Sun, Jan 15, 2010.

  1. A big hush-hush for that?

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

    Anyway, CONGLATURATIONS

    Here's to another good year. And, hopefully, some good Sonic games, heh.

    Now I see why every PNG on the Wiki is optimized.
     
  7. A real server maybe?

    SSRG, world domination, a billion and one research projects...
    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?

    A server can have literally any specification as possible, usually hardware is modified and designed for server use. Retro's specifications are fine. A dual-core server with 4GB RAM and 500GB of space is suitable for Retro's things. I mean, if you're gonna bitch about server specs, the SSRG's server has an Intel Celeron processor and 512MB of RAM.

    Welp, this.
    BadnikNET runs on 256MB RAM and duct tape. :ssh:

    Chimpo worked VERY hard on that, damn it. Do not mock our Mexican craftsmanship.

    Hey, if I've learned anything from the Red Green Show, it's that duct tape can be used to fix anything.

    Anything.

    If BadnikNET is held together by duct tape, than that's fine with me. :colbert: :v:

    Nonetheless, we had a terrific year last year (even if we did have some issues). The wiki is growing like mad, the numerous discoveries, the start to 3D Sonic hacking, all in all, very nice. :thumbsup:

    I learned that the Gods' Bonding Agent can be used to repair a boat that has been reduced to 9 steel rods from the Mythbusters. :thumbsup:
