8-Bit Music Stream ON Tuesday from 2-8 PM (CST) = Viz & Steam Games!

On Tuesday, 6/30/2015, from 2 - 8 PM (central time zone) we'll all be listening to and rating the songs submitted to the 8-Bit Music Competition. Around 30 seconds before each song is done, I'll put up a poll which will allow everyone to vote. I will be hosting this event on my Twitch channel and I'll be giving away a total of $300 worth of steam games and/or 300,000 Viz to random viewers of the stream so the longer you stick around and vote, the better your chances of walking away with a cash prize. To qualify for the cash and viz prizes, all you have to do is vote on the music and follow my channel.

If you win a raffle, you get to choose whether you want the Viz prize or whether you want to pick a steam game from a list of steam games which I'll provide sometime before the event begins. Since this will be by far the longest music stream I've ever hosted, there will be a lot more stuff handed out compared to previous music streams (but unfortunately no cash prizes this time since I'm broke).

I don't expect anyone to stick around for the full 6 hours but if you're free during any of this time (even if it's just a half hour), feel free to stop by and hang out in the chat. It's usually a lot of fun chatting with vizzed users, talking about video games and listening to awesome video game music.

Summer 2015 Netplay Tournament: Teams = Sign up for a chance to win $100

This competition will involve 2 player teams facing off against other 2 player teams. This is the 3rd year I've hosted a teams tournament. You can find the results of previous years here:
Summer 2014: Retro Renegades Wins
Summer 2013: Kogarasumaru Wins



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 (I'll be adding more later):

Turbo Grafx:
-Bomberman '94
-Final Match Tennis
-Moto Roader

Super Nintendo:
-Micro Machines 2 - Turbo Tournament
-Tiny Toon Adventures - Wacky Sports Challenge

Nintendo NES:
-Super Spike V'Ball

Playstation:
-Bomberman World
-Micro Machines V3
-Crash Bash

We're doing things slightly different this year. The games will be grouped by system and each week a team can veto a system which means for their matchup that week, no game from that system can be picked. This will allow users to compete who are unable to do netplay for a certain system because they'll be able to simply veto that system each week and never have to worry about playing a game for it.



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 and netplay should work for at least 3 of the systems mentioned above
-You must 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 = 200,000 Viz or US $100
2nd = 100,000 Viz or US $50
3rd = 50,000 Viz
(teams will share the prize)



Penalty:
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 Monday, July 6th.



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 have 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.

Summer 2015 Newsletter + Help Out Vizzed = 5000 Viz!

Summer 2015 Newsletter
The Summer 2015 Newsletter has begun rolling out today and should take up to 2-3 weeks to deliver to everyone. This newsletter basically just highlights all of the big site updates and RGR Plugin updates that have taken place over the past 6 months so there's nothing real special in it for those of you who use the site daily and read the announcements and also read the threads posted in the news forum. Just in case you don't receive it though and wanted to see what it contained, my next post will contain the contents of the newsletter.

The great thing about these newsletters is that it helps increase the site's traffic a little by reminding users that Vizzed.com still exists and by letting them know of updates that may interest them. Hopefully over the next 2+ weeks we'll see old veterans come back and an increase in traffic, which is something the site desperately needs since it has been struggling lately financially (it's definitely not cheap to pay for the site servers and RGR Plugin updates).



Help Out Vizzed = 5000 Viz!
Here's how you can help out vizzed. If you ever received an email from vizzed, there's a good chance it may have gone to your junk or spam box. If you still have the email, simply mark it as safe if the option is available. In hotmail you'd click 'Wait, it's safe', in gmail and yahoo you'd click 'Not Spam' (the link to click may vary for other email providers). If you can't find any emails sent from one of the vizzed email addresses then wait until you receive the newsletter and you can do this with that. Respond to the below thread once you've done this.

The reason this is so important is because vizzed.com got on hotmail's block list a few weeks which means that any email sent from a vizzed.com email address was blocked instantly. I was able to contact them and get us removed from the ban but they said that I need to increase the reputation of emails sent from the vizzed servers otherwise I could easily get back on the list. It's very important for me to stay off this ban list and all other ban lists because this basically prevents users signing up from getting their verification email which is really bad. Plus it makes it so users can't recover their password, get newsletters and other various notifications. If we can get the reputation of the vizzed email accounts high enough then the vizzed emails may no longer be automatically sent to the spam/junk box of various email providers.

Now I don't want to get into too much detail but the reason we even got added to hotmail's ban list (and possibly others) is because a bot was using the registration form of vizzed to send out tons of spam emails. Since then I've added a reCAPTCHA to the registration form to prevent bots from abusing it.



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

Bomberman '94 Final Matchup & Showdown = Concluded

If you missed either streams, you can watch them on YouTube below.


Bomberman Netplay Tournament: Final Matchup!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5zZOQmapM8


Bomberman '94 Showdown - Defeat Davideo7 & Foxyman1113 and Win $200!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGG57k6QsEI


The results of these streams will be revealed in my next post so if you want to watch the videos without spoilers, don't read my next post. If you want to find out who won the tournament or if anyone beat Foxyman1113 and I, read my next post.


If you'd like to see Foxyman1113 and I host more events like the Bomberman '94 Showdown event where you have to beat us for a prize, let me know in the below thread! It was a lot of fun and we'd both would definitely do this again sometime either in the same game or a different game. Of course, I wouldn't do a cash prize if we did a different game because I'm not confident in our abilities to defend a cash prize in any other game but if it were a different game, I'd still be willing to offer up a big Viz prize.

Bomberman Netplay Tournament: Final Matchup! + Beat Foxyman1113 & Davideo7 for $200!

2015 Spring Bomberman Tournament = Final Matchup at 3:15 PM Central Time on Wednesday, 6/24/2015
The Bomberman Netplay Tournament which started back in early April will come to an end this Wednesday in the final matchup! Here are the 5 users who made it to the final matchup along with their player number (which also reflects their overall rank) and Bomberman color: Davideo7 (P1: White), Foxyman1113 (P2: Black), deg2000 (P3: Red), Linkums (P4: Blue) and lilwildwolf21 (P5: Green).

The final matchup will last anywhere between 45 minutes and 75 minutes and will consist of rounds. The winner of the tournament gets $200, 2nd place gets $50, 3rd place gets $25 and 4th & 5th get Viz prizes. If you're curious about how this tournament worked and who all competed, you can find more information here.

Here's how the final matchup will work. At the end of each round, the user (or users if there is a tie for last) with the lowest trophy count will be eliminated. We keep doing this until only 1 user stands, which will be our winner. The rules of the final matchup are exactly as they were in last year's final matchup (which can be viewed here). If you miss the stream, I'll be uploading the video to my personal YouTube account here.

The matchup will be live streamed on my Twitch Channel here:
http://www.twitch.tv/davideo7
(be sure to 'Follow' my channel so you don't forget)



Defeat Foxyman1113 and Davideo7 & win US $200! Event starts at around 4:30 PM central time on Wednesday, 6/24/2015
As soon as the Bomberman Netplay Tournament ends, there will be a special Bomberman event that'll take place right afterward (just like last year) involving the 2 users who had the highest overall rank in the tournament which is Davideo7 (me) and Foxyman1113. You'll form a team with someone and take us on in a 2 vs 2 match and if you can beat us, you and your teammate get to share the $200 prize!

If you're interested in challenging us, read the full details and respond to this thread here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=88058

This event will be live streamed on my Twitch Channel here:

Vizzed RGR Plugin 2.30 = Download Now!

Vizzed RGR Plugin 2.30 is ready for download! This release primarily consists of bug fixes, an architecture upgrade, better stability and a few other enhancements. Download link can be found at the bottom of this post.

If all goes well as in this version works fine for enough users, this release and the previous 2.25 release will become mandatory upgrades if you're using an earlier release. The reason the previous release will be a mandatory upgrade instead of this one is because there was a huge architecture upgrade within the plugin that took place between 2.25 and 2.30 so it's possible that the new plugin might not function properly for some people. 2.25 will be a mandatory upgrade for many reasons and if for some reason you need to know those reasons, feel free to ask.



List of all the upgrades and enhancements since the 2.25 release

MAME/MESS Updated
We've updated MAME/MESS to 0.160 from 0.153. 0.153 was the version used in 2.25 and before that we used a much older version. This helps increase game compatibility and playability for Arcade games and MESS emulated systems. It also helps improve MAME/MESS Netplay (which was added in 2.25).

FCEUX Updated
This improves the compatibility and playability of NES games.

Forced Game Download if File Size is Different
The plugin now forces a file download if the file size of the downloaded game doesn't match the file size of the game that the user is trying to download. This will also fix the issue where a user plays a game for 1 system and then later plays a game with the same file name for another system but ends up playing the game for that previous system because it has the same file name.

Upgraded Architecture
The plugin process is exe based instead of dll based now which helps increase stability and playability a little. This is beneficial for many reasons but here's 3: 1. It'll be easy to upgrade the plugin in the future to allow multiple instances; 2. When the plugin launches, we can set its process priority which would allow games to run better for some users; 3. It'll make it easier to eventually create a plugin that loads the emulators externally each time you play an emulator for the first time (or when you play it after it's been updated) which would mean that the plugin would only be around 1 MB and we could do updates to the systems without needing a new plugin release. This also fixed the issue with Dreamcast games in Google Chrome.

Other Various Fixes
-I have more control over MAME/MESS which will help me better fine tune various games systems
-Ability to swap discs in Sega CD (I still have to update play window to reflect this)
-Ability to swap disks for various MESS systems (I still have to update play window)
-MESS mouse support (specifically for CD-i)
-Fixed MAME/MESS full screen crunch issue
-Plugin now generates a crash report on your PC here: C:\ProgramData\Vizzed\VizzedRgrPlugin
-Plugin is less likely to crash your internet browser when it crashes
-Improvements to how screenshots and videos are handled with MAME/MESS
-Many other various bug fixes and plugin improvements



Please Help Us Fund More Updates
The site's traffic and revenue continues to drop and so have the donations lately. I was barely able to pay for the site servers this month which is the first time I've struggled to pay for them in probably 2+ years. On top of that, I currently owe Tom for work that he's done lately so I need to work on getting caught up on what I owe him. For those who can afford it, it'd be great if you could donate to the site to help us get a few more features before Tom quits working on the RGR Plugin forever which he says is in the near future.

There's still a lot of features I'd like to get added which includes Google Chrome Support, more systems including DOS and more! You can see a list of what I'd like to get added here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=87980

If you're interested in helping fund RGR Plugin updates, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/donations.php

If you don't have money to donate but have games that you no longer use that you'd be willing to donate to the site that I could resell for profit to put toward the site, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=58552

There are lots of benefits to those who donate including access to more games, access to more systems, access to more features, faster download speeds, etc. I also plan to add lots of other things in the near future which include blocking ads, ability to change name, various upcoming site features, and more!



Thank You tom760 and Staff
I'd like to give another huge thanks to tom760 for his willingness to continue working on the RGR Plugin. Be sure to give him praise via his profile or PM him here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/profile.php?id=33339

I'd also like to give a thanks to all of the users and staff members who helped test out all of these betas over the past few months.



Click Here to Download RGR Plugin 2.30
(Click Here for a Mirror Download)

If the plugin tells you you're missing VC++ Runtime, you'll need to install that first. You can download it here:
http://www.vizzed.co/vcredist_x86/vcredist_x86.exe

You may need to uninstall previous version if you're having troubles installing this new version.

Attention Windows 8 Users, the plugin will not work if you use Internet Explorer from the Metro App screen. You must either launch Internet Explorer from the desktop, use a different internet browser or launch the site using the Vizzed RGR Plugin App icon.

For Dreamcast Games you'll need a fast computer, a controller plugged in and you'll need to download and install DirectX 9 Runtime here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

If you're having troubles with this version, you can try the previous release:
RGR Plugin 2.25

Earn Triple Viz & CP for Video Game Articles = E3 Celebration

For the next 2 weeks, from 6/11/2015 - 6/25/2015, you'll earn 3 times more Viz and CP for writing Video Game Articles! There's a lot of news in the gaming community during these weeks and as a way to get more users to submit articles to the site, I'm offering a huge opportunity to earn a ton of Viz and CP!

So how much can you now make for making an article? Well before you could earn up to 12.5 CP and 1250 Viz for writing a 250 word article (which is a lot) but now during this time you can earn 37.5 CP and 3750 Viz for a 250 word article! A 250 word article is pretty small too and a user should easily be able to do a 250 word article in under a half hour (which includes both the research and typing it up).

Before writing an article, please read the rules first here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=80458

When you're all set, submit your article to this forum:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/forum.php?id=111

If you have any questions, be sure to let me know in this thread:

Site Staff Application = Wave 3

Here's your 3rd and final chance to become a Site Staff member! This application will stay open until June 19th.

If you didn't get hired last time or even the time before, apply again! Some users that applied last time would've qualified to become staff but since the position they applied for was filled up or no longer in demand, we had to pass on them. I've removed all filled or low priority positions so everything that is remaining are positions we really need filled so we're a little desperate at this point.

For a few of the roles below, I added additional details of how you can increase your chances of getting hired for those roles.

Your job is to add missing video game characters and missing game franchises to the Video Game Characters feature on vizzed. You'll also be in charge of organizing the characters by making sure the current characters are assigned to their proper game franchise and you'll also be in charge of adding details to game characters that are missing details or have wrong information. Lastly, you'll also be in charge of accepting or declining characters and franchises that regular users request to have added.

-Willing to invest 5-10 hours into the site each week for each of your roles

Donate Your Games to Vizzed = Earn Viz for Special Features

My quest continues to obtaining physical copies of games in the Retro Game Room. I have a lot already but still a ton to go. Systems you could donate games for include Super Nintendo, Nintendo NES, Game Boy, Nintendo 64, Genesis, Playstation, Dreamcast, etc. You can basically donate anything to me, even more modern games including DS, Xbox 360, GameCube, Playstation Vita, etc. Any modern game most likely will be resold and the profit put toward the site and future RGR Plugin updates, any retro game donated will go into my personal collection which will help me maintain the legality of the site (duplicates will be resold though). I'll even accept game systems but I'll only accept game accessories that have value or don't take up a lot of space.

I'll pay you 10,000s of Viz for sending me your games!


Here's a few examples of items that you might want to earn Viz for:
10,000 Viz = Netplay item - Allows you to create netplay sessions without paying Viz
25,000 Viz = V-Machine item - Allows you to play any game without paying Viz (doesn't include cd games)
50,000 Viz = Laptop item - Allows you to play any game without paying Viz (doesn't include cd games). Also allows you to create netplay sessions for 0 Viz.
50,000 Viz = V-Machine CD item - Allows you to play any game without paying Viz (does include all CD games except Playstation)
50,000 Viz = Playstation item - Allows you to access and play 2,400+ different Playstation games for 0 Viz

You can find a list of items that you can buy that do special things here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/store.php?action=shops&types=accessory


You can donate either retro games or modern games. For any game that I already own that you donate, I'll probably sell them and use the profit to invest into the site. If you donate a Playstation game, not only will I give you Viz for it but I'll also add it as a playable game on the site.

You can of course earn Viz in many other ways, a complete list of ways can be found here: http://www.vizzed.com/boards/controlpanel.php?category=help&help=terminology&name=Viz#Viz


Tell me in the following thread what games you're interested in donating, the condition of the games and I'll tell you how much Viz I'd give you for the games:
