Vizzed RGR Plugin 2.11 = Download Now!

It's been more than 2 years since we've seen an update to the RGR Plugin but I'm happy to tell you all that we have more RGR Plugin updates lined up! And we already have an update ready.

The Vizzed RGR Plugin 2.11 has a ton of nice updates which I'll go over briefly below and in more detail further below. This update is an optional update but is required to do netplay (future updates may be required).

Click Here to Download RGR Plugin 2.11
(Click Here for a Mirror Download)
(Click Here for a Different 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

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 then you can try the 2.1 version:
http://www.vizzed.co/VizzedRgrPlugin-2.1.msi
(it's basically the same except you can't save with Dreamcast games)



Included Updates
-Better Game Playability and Compatibility for Mednafen Games
-Access to many new options and features for Mednafen games
-Cheat Code Support for Mednafen Games
-Emulator Movies (great for TAS runs)
-Playstation Netplay (supports 2+ players)
-Ability to Change Controllers During Netplay
-Dreamcast Support (greatest system ever)
-Many Other Various Improvements and Additions



Please Help Us Fund More Updates
I've already invested $1600 into these updates and my total budget before these updates was $2500 which leaves me with around $900 left in my budget. That's only enough to get 1 or 2 (depending on feature) more features that you all requested in this thread so please consider donating so that we can get all of the features added that you all requested and even more! Remember, there are lots of benefits to donating which includes access to more systems, features and games. Go here to donate:
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



Detailed List of Updates

Better Game Playability and Compatibility for Mednafen Games
More games will be playable in Mednafen and more games will have better playability. Mednafen required systems include: Atari Lynx, Neo Geo Pocket (and color), WonderSwan (and color), Virtual Boy, Turbo Grafx, Turby Grafx CD, SueprGrafx, PC-FX, Game Gear, Master System and Playstation. Optional systems include: GB, GBC, GBA, NES, SNES and Genesis.

Access to Many New Options and Features for Mednafen Games
You'll now have access to so many more features and options while playing games with the Mednafen emulator. Some of these options include:
Spacebar = Speeds up the game
ALT + Spacebar = Slows down the game
Backspace = Lets you rewind the game (but you must enable it first by pressing CTRL+Backspace)
CTRL+F12 = Lets you enter cheat codes (make sure to enable cheats first by pressing F12)
CTRL+Page Up = Lets you change the input device (switch to mouse if game supports mouse)
CTRL+# = Lets you choose a different save slot to save to (where # would be 0-9)
ALT+# = Lets you remove graphics layers (where # would be 1-9)
SHIFT+F3 = Lets you start and stop an emulator movie (CTRL + F3 lets you watch it)
F1 = Shows all of the available options

Cheat Code Support for Mednafen Games
You can now insert Game Genie, Game Shark and Action Replay codes. You type them in and insert them into your game and can disable them whenever you want. You can load any codes that you've already entered in at any time. This feature is a little confusing to use and we're still trying to understand how it works exactly.

Emulator Movies
You can now create emulator movies! The awesome thing about an emulator movie is that you can record your gameplay without putting very much strain on your computer. Also, if you choose to use the rewind feature a lot to undo your mistakes, the rewind doesn't get recorded so therefore your emulator movie will not show your mistakes, it'll appear as if you played flawless. Once you've created an emulator movie, use the emulators built in video recording to record the emulator movie and upload the movie as a TAS run (aka Tool Assisted Run). You currently can only save 1 emulator movie per a game but if enough users are interested in this feature and want the ability to save up to 10 per a game, let me know.

Playstation Netplay
You can now play Playstation games with users on vizzed! Now you need to have the Playstation item (costs 50,000 Viz) to access and create Playstation netplay sessions but anyone can join an already created Playstation session! Playstation netplay supports 2-5 players. Some Playstation games require a powerful computer when in a netplay session.

Ability to Change Controllers During Netplay
When you're the session creator (or a staff member), you'll have access to a few extra commands at the bottom right corner of the play window while in a netplay session. You can swap a player's controller with another player which is very convenient, especially if users entered in the wrong order or if a user leaves suddenly. You also have access to a few other commands such as the ability to ping the netplay server.

Dreamcast Support
Probably the number 1 requested feature over the past 2 years. Dreamcast Support has finally been added to the RGR Plugin! These games require a powerful computer and currently lack features such as screenshot taking but it does support full screen (press ALT+Enter a few times) and also saving (but not save states, you save to the "internal memory"). We also haven't added many games yet but I'll work on getting as many games added as I can as soon as I can. Only users with the Beta Test Ticket item (costs 10,000 Viz) can access Dreamcast games currently but they'll be available to everyone soon enough. You can find a list of all the games we currently have here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?system=dc

Many Other Various Improvements and Additions
There are a ton of other little fixes here and there and a too many little things worth mentioning them all. However, if you want a detailed list of all the Mednafen related improvements and fixes, go here:

Thank You tom760
I'd like to give a huge thanks to tom760 for his willingness to continue working on the RGR Plugin. He took a break from it for over 2 years but now he's back in action! So be sure to give him praise via his profile or PM here:

What RGR Plugin Features Do You Want? + Donate to Help Fund New Updates!

What RGR Plugin Features Do You Want?
For the first time in over 2 years, the guy who created the RGR Plugin is willing to give me the source code and he's even willing to add a few new features to the RGR Plugin . Now the question is, what features do you guys want to see the most? In the poll within the link below, vote on the features you want to see added the most (multi-voting is enabled). If you have ideas for other features, please let me know and I'll add them to the poll. Also let me know in this thread why you think we need the features that you've suggested:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=84486



Donate to Help Fund New Updates!
Getting updates added to the RGR Plugin is not cheap for me. I've invested around $20,000 into the RGR Plugin over the course of about 4 years. If you'd like to help us get new features added then please consider donating! Every little bit helps, whether it be $10 or $100, donate whatever you can whenever you can. Not only will your donations help us get new features but you'll also receive lots of site benefits as well (such as access to more games, faster download speeds, etc).

If you're interested in donating toward the RGR Plugin, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/donations.php



Breakdown of all the possible new features if we get enough donations

Update Mednafen
This would make netplay run better and increase the compatibility and playability of the *mednafen emulated systems. It would also make some games that currently have problems no longer have problems. It'd also add additional new features such as 3-8 player genesis netplay (currently netplay on genesis only supports 2 players), possibly Playstation netplay (for some games for users with powerful computers), possibly working SNES netplay for users who currently have problems, and many other fixes and improvements.

Update MAME/MESS
This would increase the compatibility and playability of the Arcade games and also the **MESS emulated systems. It'd also decrease problems for various Arcade and **MESS games and could also allow us to add a few more (mostly older) systems to the site.

MAME/MESS Netplay
This would allow users to play Arcade games online together and also **MESS emulated games together (which would add netplay support to the majority of non-handheld games on vizzed!). There are a lot of great multiplayer Arcade games that are 2-6 players and a lot of them are also coop. I should also point out that with this update, some Playstation games on the site would have Netplay support and some N64 games would have perfect netplay (no more desyncing!).

MAME/MESS Full Screen Support
This would give you the ability to play Arcade games and **MESS games in full screen mode.

More Systems to support Video Recording
Most of the game systems on vizzed allow you to press a single button and record your gameplay but not every system support it. N64, Sega CD and a few others don't currently support it.

Ability to change controllers during Netplay
This would allow netplayers to change who is 1st player, 2nd player, etc. The session host would have the ability to assign a user (or their own) to a different controller.

Ability to have 2 plugin instances at the same time
This would allow you to have 2 instances of the RGR Plugin open at the same time. Now it would require a fast computer to have 2 instances open at the same time but this would basically allow you and another user to see eachother's games. You'd be playing in your game in your instance and you'd be able to see their game in their instance. This would be great for if you want to play through a single player game with someone else, show someone how to do something or race each other to see who can beat the game the fastest in real time.

MAME/MESS High Score and Speedruns
Currently the MAME and **MESS games do not support High Score or Speedruns; this would change that.

Add DOS Games
This would allow us to add those old PC games known as DOS games. So basically most PC games released between 1981 and 1995 (and some between 1995-2000) would be capable of being added to the site.

Add Dreamcast Games
This would allow us to add Sega Dreamcast games to the site. This would require users to have somewhat powerful computers.


*Mednafen required systems include: Atari Lynx, Neo Geo Pocket (and color), WonderSwan (and color), Virtual Boy, Turbo Grafx, Turby Grafx CD, SueprGrafx, PC-FX, Game Gear, Master System and Playstation. Optional systems include: GB, GBC, GBA, NES, SNES and Genesis.

**MESS required systems include: C64, Atari 2600, Apple II, MSX, MSX 2, Sega Saturn, CD-i, Intellivision, Colecovision, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Pico, Odyssey 2, PocketStation, Atari Jaguar, SG-1000, Pokemon Mini and SC-3000. MESS is compatible with other systems on the site but currently you cannot play those systems with MESS (I'll add that ability later on).

Reclaim your Vizzed Minecraft MViz

The Vizzed.co server ran out of disk space which resulted into everyone losing the MViz on the Vizzed Minecraft server. Thankfully I have a backup from December 8th but a lot of users have earned a lot of MViz since then. If your one of the users who have less MViz than you did before, let us know in the below thread and we'll make sure to get you your MViz back.

More CP / Viz for Screenshot Submissions + VGR Now Supports Screenshot Submissions

Screenshot Uploading to Modern Games
You can now upload screenshots to games in the Video Game Room that don't exist in the Retro Game Room (in other words, modern games or games that the RGR Plugin don't support). This is a feature I'm excited about and I'm happy to finally reveal it, I don't think I told anyone about it before or while I was working on it.

For more information, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=83326



Earn more Viz and CP from submitting Screenshots
You can now earn more Viz and CP from submitting screenshots and from adding details to those screenshots. Before you only earned 0.2 CP and 20 Viz per a screenshot you submitted to the site which was incredibly low in my opinion (you would've had to submit 50 screenshots to earn 10 CP and 10 CP is suppose to be the equivalent of 1 hour worth of work), especially since users invest a good amount of time finding good screenshot opportunities. The amount of CP and Viz you can earn now is based on how many screenshots you've submitted to the same game and how many details you added to the screenshot.

Winter 2015 - Nintendo NES Netplay Tournament: = Win US $100 = Sign up Now!

This is an "Official" Vizzed tournament. As some of you know, I plan to hold 4 a year.
Unlike the last Vizzed Tournament (which will be headed to the final round next week), this tournament will be all elimination rounds, well double elimination to be exact. In other words, lose 2 games and you're out of the tournament.

Everyone starts out in the "winners" bracket and if you lose, you go on to the "losers" bracket and if you lose in the losers bracket, you're out of the tournament. At the very end, the winner of the winners bracket and the winner of the losers bracket play each other but the winner of the losers bracket has to beat the winner of the winners bracket twice (this makes it fair to the user who went undefeated for going undefeated).

Since this is a double elimination tournament, there is no way for me to know how long it'll last since the amount of people who sign up determines how long it'll last but if I were to take a guess, I'd say around 6 weeks. I will allow any number of users to join but we will need an even number. Bye weeks may be handed out to users who do very well if needed in order to balance out the structuring of the brackets.

We'll be playing various multiplayer games for the Nintendo NES. Some of those games include Balloon Fight, Clu Clu Land, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong 3, Dr. Mario, Ice Climber, Mario Bros., Pinball, Urban Champion, Wario's Woods, Wrecking Crew, and more. If you want to recommend additional games for this tournament, do so here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=83253

I held a similar tournament last year at this time. That tournament involved the multiplayer games from NES Remix (Wii-U) and overall it was a very fun and successful tournament with tons of participation (96 users). If you want to get an idea of how this tournament will work, you can view Week 1 of that tournament here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=71377


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
-If you're 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 = US $100 or 150,000 Viz
2nd = US $50 or 75,000 Viz
3rd = US $25 or 37,500 Viz
4th = 20,000 Viz
5th = 10,000 Viz


Entry Fee: None
(since this is an elimination type tournament, I see no reason for an entry fee)


Penalty:
If you fail to play 2 or more of your matches, you'll be added to the netplay ban list which means you wont be able to participate in a netplay tournament for at least a year. You'll also have 10,000 Viz deducted from your account.


Signup ends and Tournament begins on Monday, January 12th (or once we get 128 users).

Merry Christmas

I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. It's not quite Christmas yet but I always like to make sure everyone in all time zones get it before Christmas Eve.



7 Days of Vizzed Christmas
You'll all be rewarded a nice Christmas gift when you come to the site on Christmas (server time). Additionally, you'll be rewarded a random amount of Viz for each day that you come to vizzed from the 25th until the end of the year, the 'Vizzed 7 Days of Christmas'.



Christmas Games in the Retro Game Room
The Retro Game Room has 64 Christmas games, 14 of them added in the past year. You can find them all here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?sort=best&search=Christmas&searchBy=theme



Earn an easy 1000 Viz
A few years ago I put together a video highlighting 12 Christmas games (non hacked):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcbh8UIMMj8
I'll give you 1000 Viz for liking and commenting on the above YouTube video. Let me know in the below thread once you've done this.



Tell your friends about the site and earn lots of Viz
From now until the end of the year, if you refer 10 people to the site, I'll give you 20,000 Viz on top of the 5000+ Viz that you'll automatically get for referring them. In other words, you'll earn 25,000+ Viz for referring 10 of your friends to the site. There's a ton of kids on Christmas break, a lot of them may be looking for something to do, why not introduce them to Vizzed? Once you've referred the users (and they've registered), let me know in the below thread.



Christmas Streams
There's going to be a few users doing live streams of Christmas games over the next few days, including myself. You can find a list of Twitch Streamers on Vizzed here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/netplaysessions.php

Also be sure to follow the streamers you like.



Holy Bible on Vizzed
You can now read the entire King James Version of the Bible on Vizzed! This is a project I've been working on for my other site http://www.mybiblegames.com/ on and off for about a week or so now so think of this as an expansion of that site on Vizzed rather than an expansion of Vizzed. Vizzed is a Christian friendly site but not a Christian site, I respect the atheists of this site enough to not take vizzed in that direction but it definitely doesn't hurt the site to merge a little with MyBibleGames.

You can find more information here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=83048



Any questions, comments or feedback? Or do you simply want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas? Do so in this thread:

Vizzed Minecraft Server Fixed and Updated

The Vizzed Minecraft Server has been fixed and has been updated to the latest version of Minecraft! You no longer have to use an older version of Minecraft to use our Minecraft server, you can use it with the latest version. The server now uses Spigot which should also make the server run better.


I've updated a bunch of the plugins on the server and I've also added a new plugin which shows some of your minecraft related stats right on your profile (and more stats to come). When you log into the server for the first time since this feature was added, a new table will appear on your profile and that'll begin keeping track of your stats. Everyone's play time will start at 0 since I wasn't tracking play time before and have no way of knowing what everyone's play time was previously.


Anyone can join our server! The IP Address is: Vizzed.co
But before you join, please read this thread first:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=75152


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

Happy 10 Year Anniversary & 2014 Vizzed Awards

As of Today, 12-06-14, the current Vizzed Board is 10 years old!

This year I’ve continued expanding the Video Game Room by adding profile pages for video game characters, putting up a vizzed minecraft server and also by adding video game accessories (such as systems and controllers) to the VGR. I’ve also added game pages for many new games and systems. I haven’t forgotten about the Retro Game Room though because that has also received a ton of new features including a game streaming page, more features to netplay and game searching and many more games and systems. Over 10,000 games added to the RGR which is probably the most that has ever been added to the RGR in a single year.

You can find the awards and additional anniversary information here:
