Famicom Disk System Music Stream ON Wednesday from 4-8 PM (CST) = 200K Viz & $200 Steam Raffles!

On Wednesday, 4/27/2016, from 4 - 8 PM (central time zone) we'll all be listening to and rating the songs submitted to the Famicom Disk System Music Competition. Shortly before each song finishes, I'll give users a link to where they can rate each song and the song submitters get points for any rating above a 3 (out of 5).

I will be hosting this event on my Twitch channel and I'll be giving away a total of 200,000 Viz and $200 worth of Steam Games. The more songs you rate, the higher your chances are of winning a raffle after the stream is over. Each rating you make during the stream is basically another entry in the raffle. The games that you can pick from will be left over games from this thread.

If you can only show up for a little while that's fine.

My twitch channel can be found here:
http://www.twitch.tv/davideo7
(be sure to "Follow" my channel)

If you have any questions or comments, please post in this thread:

Get Access to Play 2400+ PlayStation Games!

I'm giving anyone who wants access to play PlayStation games on Vizzed an opportunity to earn the PlayStation item. Normally you'd have to spend 50,000 Viz for the PlayStation item in the Item Shop in order to get access to the nearly 2500 PS1 games that Vizzed has available.

Here's how this will work. Send me 5000 Viz and I'll let you "rent" the PlayStation item for 1 month. If you do any of the below requirements, you get to keep it!

There are a few reasons why I can't give every user access to PlayStation games but the primary reason is that it'd suck up a lot of bandwidth and bandwidth usage costs me money. The server fees for this site and for hosting the PS1 games is already expensive and PS1 games are pretty large in file size (10-20 times larger than N64 games). So the best way to limit how many users are playing PS1 games is by unfortunately forcing users to earn it.

Requirements to Keep it:
-Write 3 Reviews of PS1 games of at least 2000 Words (should have good spelling/grammar)
-Write 6 Reviews of PS1 games of at least 1000 Words (should have good spelling/grammar)
-Do 15 hours worth of PS1 netplay multiplayer with other users
-Stream 20 hours worth of PS1 games to Twitch or Hitbox *
-Stream 10 hours worth of PS1 games while netplaying with other users *
-Submit 10 hours worth of PS1 gameplay videos to the Vizzed YouTube Channel (should have little idle time)
-Take a total of 120 screenshots among 12 different PS1 games (screenshots should be unique from each other)
-Write 2 Walkthroughs for PS1 games of at least 2,500 Words each
-Write 1 Walkthrough of at least 5,000 Words for a PS1 game
*You'll have to give me proof by archiving your stream videos. You'll also have to make sure that Vizzed.com is being advertised in both the stream video and the stream page itself.

If you want to do a combination of more than 1 option from the above list, let me know and we can work something out. If you want a suggestion on which one to pick then I'd suggest the 'Stream 10 hours worth of PS1 games while netplaying' since that's probably the quickest one to do and also because I would like to see more users netplaying PS1 games, especially since there are just so many good multiplayer games for the system.

You can find all of the PlayStation games in the Retro Game Room here:
http://www.vizzed.com/play-psx/

This offer ends once your 1 month rental expires. You can rent it a 2nd time for an additional 5000 Viz if you need more time to fulfill one of the above requirements. To send me Viz, go to my profile here and then scroll half way down the page until you see the 'Send Davideo7 Viz!' section.

If you have any questions or feedback, let me know in this thread:

A Huge Thanks to All Vizzed Users + Free Steam Games!

Vizzed has gone through a lot over the past few months. Nintendo had me take down 100s of their games, Vizzed was temporarily flagged by Google and the site's traffic and revenue have taken some big drops. I just wanted to take this time to say Thank You to those who have stuck around and stayed loyal to Vizzed during this time! I also want to say thanks to everyone who supported the site in various ways during this time either by donating, continuing to add content to the site, helping me advertise the site and by simply coming here every day.

But I feel like saying thanks isn't good enough though. You all have invested so much time into this site and have given so much to this awesome community so I wanted to take this opportunity to give back to the community by offering everyone who is interested a free steam game. I've been buying steam game codes for well over a year and it's time to start putting some of them to use.

All you have to do is respond to the below thread letting me know which steam game you want (1 per a user) and I'll try and send you the code within 24 hours. Be sure to request a game that hasn't already been requested (you can take a look at the previous requests since my last post in this thread but I'll try and update my post with a list of what's been requested as soon as possible).

To claim your free game, simply read and respond to this thread:

Double Viz for Donations = Last Chance

Earlier this month I made an offer for users where if they donated this month, they'd get double the Viz they'd normally get for donating. This was to help stimulate donations since the site has been struggling financially for a while now (and especially lately). The offer still stands but will be ending in a few days. If anyone is still interested in donating or is wondering why they should donate, go here for full details:

Vizzed is back to normal! No longer is it flagged by Google for being "unsafe". I just wanted to say thanks to everyone's loyalty and support during this situation and thank you to everyone that helped contact Google to remove the false report. All sections of the site should work like normal again

Load Your Own Games!

You can now load and play any game rom for any emulator here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/yourgames.php

You can load games from your computer or from external URLs. This page allows you to play any game for any of the supported systems, whether Vizzed has it or not. Using this page you can also access game systems that may not even be available to you as long as you have a copy of the game. This page is accessible to everyone without restrictions, even guests. Loading games manually means no Viz charges either.

If you load up a game into the plugin that is currently available on the site or previously available on the site, the page will try to find the game in the database that matches the file name and if it finds a match, the play game page will have additional details and info (such as documenting what you're playing, finding the best settings for the game, giving you access to a chat room for the game, allowing you to submit screenshots to that game's page, etc). Also, if you play a game you've previously played, your save file should still be accessible.

Forgive me for loading the page with ads. With the things that have gone on lately, the site's ad revenue is going to take a huge hit and I need to find ways to make up for it, especially since I need the budget to get more features and systems added to the RGR Plugin and the site.

If you have any questions suggestions or feedback, please let me know in this thread:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=93282

Nintendo Removes Games from Vizzed

I've been contacted by a lawyer representing Nintendo of America Inc. and I've been given a list of games that had to be removed from Vizzed. 2,196 games have been removed from Nintendo systems which include Nintendo NES, Super Nintendo, Virtual Boy, Famicom Disk System, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color and Nintendo N64. You can find a full list of removed games here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=93240

I'm not sure what I'll be doing now that the games which were responsible for the site's primary traffic and revenue are removed but I've got a few options that I'll be looking into and hopefully I'll have a solution of some sort by next week.

If you have any questions or feedback, go here:

Spring 2016 Netplay Tournament: Bomberman '94 = Sign Up Now for a Shot at $100!

In this tournament we'll be playing Bomberman '94 for the Turbo Grafx. Each user will play 2 matchups a week. You get to choose which day and time you want to play each week from a list of available times and days. Each matchup could be any of the following:
-1-5 Player Free for All
-2 Players vs 2 Players
-1 Player vs 1 Player
-Other possible combinations


This tournament is incredibly flexible to everyone's schedule. Each week you can choose between the selectable times and days that you're available to play. As long as you're available 2 nights a week between 7 PM - 9 PM central time Tuesday-Friday nights then you'll be able to participate. You can even miss a few matchups and still have a shot at making it to the final matchup (but just don't miss too many otherwise you'll be added to the netplay ban list).


In each matchup the players will play until someone has won 5 games so a single matchup can take between 15-30 minutes. 1st place will get 7 points, 2nd place 5 points, 3rd place 3 points, 4th place 2 points and 5th place 1 point. Failure to show up to a matchup automatically results into 0 points. Every week (except the first week) the 2 users (or more, depending on how many enter) with the lowest amount of points will be eliminated from the tournament. If there's a tie, both users will be eliminated.


For each matchup, the level you play and the time you play will be predetermined. All matches will take place at either 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30 or 9:00 PM central time on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. If you are eliminated from the tournament for failing to show up to your matchups, you'll be placed on the tournament ban list which means you wont be able to participate in a netplay tournament until next year and you'll also be fined 10,000 Viz.


This is the 3rd year in a row we've had a Bomberman '94 tournament. Here are the top 5 results from each of the previous 2 years:
2015: 1st. Davideo7, 2nd. Foxyman1113, 3rd. Linkums, 4th. deg2000, 5th. lilwildwolf21
2014: 1st. Davideo7, 2nd. madison, 3rd. AceShock, 4th. Koda, 5th. Forest Dragon


Requirements:
-You must be available 2 nights a week between 7 PM - 9 PM central time Tuesday-Friday nights

Flash Emulator "NESBox" Added to Retro Game Room

The Flash Emulator 'NESBox' has been added to the Retro Game Room for the following systems:
-Nintendo NES
-Super Nintendo
-Sega Genesis *
-Game Boy
-Game Boy Color
-Game Boy Advance *
* Systems that didn't previously have a non-RGR plugin emulator available

This is the first Flash emulator to be added to the Retro Game Room so it's a great alternative for those who have issues with Java and can't use the RGR Plugin. It runs great for all of the systems but it does have audio issues for the Game Boy systems (and you can simply use the emulator's mute if it's annoying). I'm sure this emulator will be updated occasionally so when it is, I'll be sure to update ours as soon as possible.

The emulator has some nice features including:
-Save States and Load States
-Full Screen
-Mute
-Ability to change controls
-Controller Support (using Adobe AIR and NESBox Companion)

Vizzed.co Minecraft Server Upgraded to 1.9

I spent a good portion of the day upgrading the Vizzed.co Minecraft Server to 1.9. The reason it took so long was because the current server build was having issues and those issues were probably caused with the various things that have gone wrong with the server in the past. So after many attempts at failed upgrades, I basically decided to rebuild the entire server from the ground up and then transfer over various files and settings to the new build. Because of this, the server may also run a little better than it use to run.

For those who don't know, the IP address of the Vizzed Minecraft Server is:
Vizzed.co

New 'Character Bio' Action Added

I've added a new Contribution Point Action titled 'Character Bio'. This action is for writing Character Biographies and Information which go in the new Game Characters forum.

To create Biography or Information thread for a video game character, find the video game character you want to write one for in the Video Game Characters feature and then click the 'Write a Biography' link found on the character's page (to find a character you first have to click the franchise the belong in but if you can't find their franchise then they might be in the NO FRANCHISE section. All biographies for a character will appear on the character's page.

Before the only way you could write a biography for a character was by editing the character's page and only staff members were able to do that. Not only that but there wasn't a specific action for it and the payout wasn't adjusted properly and it was just inconvenient having to write up a fancy biography in such a small little box and the bio writer didn't get credit.

The payout for a 'Character Bio' is the same as Articles and Reviews, which is 0.05 CP and 5 Viz per a word (but with no base charge). The daily limit is higher than those actions. You can read more about the action and its daily limits here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/contributionpoints.php

As a test, I wrote up a few test biographies so that you can see it in action here:
http://www.vizzed.com/videogames/character.php?id=791
and here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/forum.php?id=139

I'm hoping this new action and the new forum encourage users to write up Biographies and Information threads for various video game characters.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know in this thread:

Help Vizzed Financial Struggle = Double Viz for Donations

As some of you know, Vizzed has been struggling financially over the past year after it took some huge traffic drops and now that January and February have come along (which are already the worst months financially out of the entire year), things are even worst financially. What's even worst on top of that is having to pay taxes this time of year and being self employed (since my income depends on the site's revenue) means that I have to pay in money to the government and it's usually a lot (I don't have the luxury of getting a nice tax return every year). I've been able to get site fees down a little over the past few months but they're still $1000+ a month.

If you have any money to spare, even if it's as little as $10, the donations would be hugely appreciated. If you can donate a big amount, that'd be fantastic but if you can only afford $10 then that's fine too since it adds up. If for example 100 users donated $10 each, that'd be $1000 right there which would help out greatly (and the majority of users most likely can afford $10, that's like the price of what some people spend on junk food in a week). My job is this site which allows me to work on this site full time (sometimes as much as 60-80 hours a week) so I don't really have any other source if income besides selling my possessions.


Interested in Donating? If so, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/donations.php


Earn Up to 1 Million Viz for Donating!
From now until the end of the month, users will earn double the Viz from donating! So here's how much you'll now earn from donations:
$10 = 20,000 Viz
$25 = 60,000 Viz
$50 = 150,000 Viz
$100 = 350,000 Viz
$250 = 1,000,000 Viz
(I recently already permanently increased viz payout for donations)


Why donate besides helping the site out financially?
Well donating grants you lots of Viz and lots of Viz can get you access to lots of nice items in the Item Shop. For 10,000 Viz you can get the Beta Test Ticket which grants you access to games, systems and features before they go public. For 25,000 Viz you can get access to the V-Machine item which allows you to play all games without paying extra Viz for them. For 50,000 Viz you can get the PlayStation item which gives you access to play 2500+ PlayStation games on Vizzed. There are lots of other things you can spend Viz on and I've got lots of additional items that will be added to the item shop in the upcoming weeks. Also, if you're feeling really generous, if you make the top 5 10 donator list, you'll be given your own permanent custom username color. For more information on these items, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/store.php?action=shops&types=siteitem


Don't have PayPal?
If you don't have PayPal but still want to donate, you can donate in any other way that you can (and you can even donate your unused games as seen here). I'll still add you to the donations list and you'll also still get the CP and Viz from doing so. Keep in mind that PayPal allows people with Credit Cards but no PayPal account to donate. If you don't have PayPal or a Credit Card but still want to donate, let me know of ways that you are able to in this thread:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=93010


Don't have money to donate but still want to help out?
There are lots of ways to help out the site even if you don't have money. You can tell your friends about Vizzed, you can tell everyone on your facebook about Vizzed, you can submit content to the site, etc. You can also help out the site in a ton of ways mentioned in my Help out Vizzed thread so if you can't help out financially, please consider doing everything in this thread:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=78350
