New Systems & Games Added to the Retro Game Room + Other Updates!

Here's a nice batch of updates.


New Games and Systems
Over the past few weeks, 7 retro game systems have been added to the Retro Game Room which has increased the RGR library by around 1,336 games. The added new systems include:
-Sega Saturn (75% of the games work)
-Phillips CD-i (only around 25% of the games work)
-Atari Jaguar (only around 10% of the games work)
-Pokemon Mini (most of the games work)
-Sony PocketStation (75% of the games work)
-Magnavox Odyssey 2 (most of the games work)
-Sega Pico

Since all of these games still need to be tested and configured, they are currently only available to Beta Testers of the site. To become a Beta Tester, you need to buy the "Beta Test Ticket" for 10,000 viz here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/store.php?action=shops&types=siteitem

Each system will become available to everyone once the staff has finished testing and configuring the games of each system. The CD systems and the systems with a lot of games will take longer to test.

Some of the games for these systems may not work and some may not function properly. Some of these can be fixed once the staff get to them while others may never be playable. Also, I'm still working on adding more games to these systems.

You can find a complete list of the newly added games here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?pm=true&ss=true&sp=true&aj=true&mo2=true&sps=true&cdi=true&search=&system=&searchBy=name

Need Viz to play these new games? Scroll down for information on how you can earn a lot of Viz in a very short amount of time just for helping out Vizzed.com.



New Item Shop Item: V-Machine CD
As some of you know, the V-Machine item lets you play all games for free once you've paid the Viz for it but it doesn't let you play CD games for free (due to their disk space and bandwidth). I've added a new item to the item shop called 'V-Machine CD' which also covers CD games for 50,000 Viz (except PSX).

CD systems on the site that this covers include:
-Sega CD
-Sega Saturn
-Turbo Grafx CD
-PC-FX
-CDi
(more to come)

You can see that item as well as all other items here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/store.php?action=shops&types=siteitem



Playstation Games
Vizzed has had Playstation games for quite a while and the library keeps on getting bigger and bigger. The only way to view and play our Playstation library is by purchasing the 'Playstation' item for 50,000 Viz:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/store.php?action=shops&types=siteitem



Earn 10,000+ Viz
I've created a new thread full of new offers which allow you to earn a ton of Viz in a very short amount of time. For more information, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=78350



New YouTube Channels
I've created 3 new YouTube channels which will have different purposes:
Vizzed Video Game Commercials: A channel dedicated to video game commercials (this is where all the old commercials will go)
Vizzed Video Game Music: A channel dedicated to video game soundtracks
Vizzed Productions: A channel dedicated to events, tournaments, competitions and compilation videos

Of the 3 new channels, the only one which has content currently is the 'Vizzed Video Game Commercials' channel. The other 2 channels will get content added next month.

Be sure to subscribe to the above 3 channels and also subscribe to the already existing channels:
Vizzed Gameplay Videos

Prizes:
1st = 100,000 Viz or US $75
2nd = 50,000 Viz or US $25
3rd = 25,000 Viz

Twitch Streamers now get CP & Viz for streaming the RGR

I've made a bunch of updates to the Twitch Streamers page which can be found here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/twitchstreamers.php


Earn CP & Viz
You now earn CP and Viz when you stream games in the Retro Game Room. You earn 0.1 CP (rounded) and 20 Viz for every minute you stream so if you stream 1 hour, you'll get 6 CP and 1200 Viz (which doesn't factor in multipliers and daily limits).


Stream list updated
The list of streamers on the page has been updated. It's a little more organized now and not only does it show the last time someone streamed but it also shows the total amount of time everyone has streamed RGR games.


Other useful updates
-The site now keeps track of what you're playing in the RGR in real time so that when you're streaming, it can let everyone know what game your streaming in case you forgot to update it
-You no longer have to visit the twitch streaming page after you've started your stream
-The streaming page now automatically removes users who haven't streamed in over 30 days


Want to become a Twitch Streamer of Vizzed?
All you have to do is sign up for a Twitch account and than let me know of your channel here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=69017


If you have any questions or comments about these updates, let me know in this thread:

Summer 2014 Netplay Tournament: Teams = Sign up for a chance to win $75

This competition will involve 2 player teams facing off against other 2 player teams. This will be the very first Netplay Tournament with a Cash prize.

This tournament will last for 12 weeks. The first 3 games will determine who advances into the regular games (I use this to weed out those who don't participate). The next 5 games are regular games and will be used to determine who goes to the elimination rounds. The last 4 games are the elimination rounds and the last round of course is the final game.

You must enter as a team, so find someone who is willing to be your teammate and let me know what your team name is. Your team may also contain a 3rd user, a user who will basically be one of your backups in case one of you can't participate in a matchup in any given week or someone who can fill in if one of the main players of the team is bad at a game that gets picked. The 3rd backup player isn't required but is suggested if you can find someone willing to take on that role.

Be careful on who you choose as a teammate. If your teammate doesn't show up for a matchup, then it's you against 2. If your teammate gets banned from the competition or drops out, then you have to play the entire tournament alone unless you can find someone to replace them.


The games that this tournament will involve:
-Bomberman '94 (TG)
-Micro Machines 2 - Turbo Tournament (SNES)
-Super Spike V'Ball (NES)
-Final Match Tennis (TG)
-Hit the Ice: The Video Hockey League (TG)
-WWF Raw (SNES)


Only 2 games from last summer's teams tournament are present this year, the other 4 are new to the annual teams tournament. You can see the details and results of the 2013 teams tournament here: http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=61450


Requirements:
-You must live in the United States (unless you have had very little lag problems playing netplay with USA users)
-The RGR Plugin must work fine on your computer, especially for Nintendo, Super Nintendo and Turbo Grafx games (in fact, if SNES netplay doesn't work for you, you will have a disadvantage but you can still participate)
-You be free at least 1 hour every week that this tournament takes place or have a backup player that can fill in for you any week that you're unavailable
-If your on the ban list, you cannot enter. To see who is on the ban list, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=60334


Prizes:
1st = 100,000 Viz or US $75
2nd = 50,000 Viz or US $25
3rd = 25,000 Viz
(teams will share the prize)


Penalty:
If you miss more than 25% of your matches, then you'll have 10,000 Viz deducted from your account. If you miss more than 50% of your matches, then you'll be added to the ban list. This rule does not apply to backup players and you wont be affected by this rule if you can get your backup player to fill in for you in a week that you'll miss.


Signup ends and Tournament begins on Tuesday, July 1st


If you want to enter, reply to the below thread with your team name, who the leader of the team is and who is on your team. If you don't a team or can't find one, respond to the below thread saying that you want to form a team with someone and I'll add you to the list of users looking for a teammate.

Earn Cash = Sell me your Video Games

I've got a small budget to buy games if anyone is interested in selling games that they no longer need or use. I'll buy almost any game for any system. If it's a retro game that I don't own, I'll probably add it to my personal collection (since my ultimate goal is to have a copy of every game in the RGR) and if it's a more modern game or a game I already do own, I'll sell the game and put the profit toward the site.

Simply respond to this thread letting me know which games you're interested in selling to me. I'll buy the games from you for around 40% of what their worth in real money (and 60% of what their worth in Viz) and if it's a game in my wishlist, I'll give you 50% of what their worth (more info about that below). If you want just Viz, I can pay you in Viz (remember, US $1 = 1000 Viz). I can either pay you with Paypal or order something online for you.

If my offer seems unfair, let me explain how it's actually a good deal. Most game stores and companies give you far less than that when you trade in your games, they usually only give you around 25% of what your games are worth. Also, there needs to be enough room for me to make a profit, especially considering there's various fees involve (amazon or ebay fees), getting the games professionally cleaned, shipping material fees, time and labor involved in testing the games, taking pictures of them, listing them for sale, shipping them up and taking them to the post office, etc.

This is also a great opportunity to earn some money. If you see some cheap games at a local thrift shop (such as Goodwill or Salvation Army) or you find some games at a garage sale, buy them and resell them to me and you could profit it off of it if you get the cheap enough.

You can find out what your games are worth by either using the Video Game Room or this handy tool:
http://www.vizzed.com/priceguide/collection.php
(You would save us both time if you added the games to your collection that you want to sell me)

Pokemon Minecraft Kanto Region = Coming Soon

I've been working on a Pokemon project on the Vizzed Minecraft Server for a while now and soon I'll be ready for others to help me out (click here for more info on the Vizzed Minecraft Server). Basically I'm recreating the entire Kanto Region from Pokemon Blue, Red, Fire Red and Leaf Green to scale. The textures & graphics, audio, npc dialogue and map layout will be based on Fire Red and Leaf Green.

The purpose of this Minecraft world will be to allow users to navigate the Kanto Region of Pokemon in a new perspective. Hopefully we'll also be able to add Pokemon to this world later to allow users to catch them and battle them.

I'm working on a resource pack to be used for this server which will replace all of the Minecraft textures with textures based on the GBA Pokemon games. I'll also be replacing most of the sounds and music from Minecraft with the sounds and music from the GBA games. Lastly, I'll be turning every NPC from the game into a Minecraft skin and making them into interactive NPCs on the Minecraft World.



Check out the YouTube Teaser Trailer I made here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_1_g9wIfiI
(please support this project by liking the video and subscribing to my channel)



Features
Every Town:
Every town from the game will be in this world.

Every Building:
Every building from the game will be present and will be accessible. The interiors and exteriors of every building will be almost perfect replicas of the game.

Every NPC:
Every NPC character from the game will be here in their original locations and they'll be saying exactly the same things they said in the games.

Updated Audio:
The audio of this world will be based on the games.

Updated Textures:
The textures of this world will be based on the games.

Pokemon:
I'm not sure if it'll be possible for me to make it so you can catch and battle Pokemon but if not, I'll still replace all the mob textures with Pokemon textures.



Want to help out?
This is a massive project that I've been working on alone up until this point but there's no way I could complete it alone this summer without help so I'm looking for some users to help out. Below is a list of positions I have available, please let me know which position (or positions) you're interested and why you're interested. Don't worry about having to put the textures together or the NPC skins together, I'll be handling those things.

You'll be in charge of putting together the insides of every building within the game.

World Map Designer (1 needed)
I've already made a few of the towns and routes and I plan to finish making the layout and landscaping of the entire world, you'll basically be in charge of finishing up everything else.

Warp Maker (1 needed)
You'll be in charge of creating the warps between the worlds. There are 2 worlds, the Outdoor World and the Indoor World. Every time you go into a building, you enter a warp to the Indoor World and any time you go into a new room within a building, you go to another warp within the Indoor World.
Requirement: You must be willing to learn how to create and edit warps
