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:

On Wednesday, 4/29/2015, from 6 - 8 PM (central time zone) we'll all be listening to and rating the songs submitted to the Dreamcast Game Music Competition. Half way through every song 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 $50 and 100,000 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.

Dreamcast Games Cost 0 Viz for the Rest of the Month

As promised, the Dreamcast games in the Retro Game Room will cost 0 Viz and be accessible to everyone for the rest of the month (which is about 3 1/2 days). The games that you play during this time will not be added to your profile and you will have to pay Viz for them later if you want to play them again.

You can find all of the Dreamcast games that we have to offer here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?system=dc#searchjump

Keep in mind though that the Dreamcast games can currently only be played with a controller so be sure to plug one in before starting up the games. If you're having troubles downloading a DC game (example, it stops or gets really slow), try it again later or simply try another game. Dreamcast games require a somewhat powerful computer so it's possible that they will not work on your computer. You'll need DirectX 9 installed on your computer which you can get here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35. Lastly, you need RGR Plugin 2.11 or later which you can get here: http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=8676.

Starting next month, Dreamcast games will require the Beta Test Ticket again which costs 10,000 Viz and can be purchased from the Item Shop. The games will also be back to their normal price which can range anywhere between 250 - 750 Viz so be sure to take advantage of this offer in the final days of "Dreamcast Month".

Special Offer! If you take at least 100 unique screenshots of Dreamcast games between now and the 1st of next month, I'll send you 20,000 Viz which is enough for the Beta Test Ticket and enough to play plenty of Dreamcast games! This is a great opportunity to be able to continue playing games after this month if you're low on Viz. Those 100 screenshots can be in just 1 game or spread among many games, just as long as each screenshot is unique from your other screenshots and unique from the screenshots already submitted to the Dreamcast games. Once you've taken all 100 screenshots, let me know in the below thread.

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

Google Chrome: How to get the RGR Plugin to work with it

The latest version of Google Chrome has disabled NPAPI plugins by default which means the RGR Plugin no longer works in Google Chrome unless you enable NPAPI plugins. If you want to learn how to continue using the RGR Plugin with Google Chrome, go here:
http://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=86584


Or the other option would be to switch to Firefox. We'll work on getting this issue fixed in a future release.

April is Dreamcast Month = Lots of Benefits for DC Fans!

Dreamcast Sudden Popularity
The Dreamcast has gained extra popularity over the past few months, plus Vizzed recently got Dreamcast games added to Vizzed so I figured this was a great opportunity to dedicate an entire month to recognizing the Dreamcast and its games. One of the smaller things I plan to do as a way to give the Dreamcast added recognition is to make the game of the week every week this month a Dreamcast game. I also have ideas for other things so be sure to read below.


Vizzed will have a Complete Dreamcast Library
Right now we only have less than 50 Dreamcast games available on the site but I plan to add 100+ Dreamcast games to the site each week this month which means we'll have a complete Dreamcast library before the month ends which will put us 600+ DC games! Dreamcast was added to the RGR Plugin recently so be sure to get the latest RGR Plugin here. You can find our Dreamcast games here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?system=dc


4 Dreamcast Themed Competitions, All with Cash Prizes
This month will have 4 competitions involving Dreamcast games in some way and they'll each have a cash prize so be sure to compete because some of the cash prizes will be big!


Dreamcast Challenge Stream
I'll be doing a 2 hour Dreamcast stream sometime this month where a few users and myself compete in various challenges in various Dreamcast games. More information on this will be provided later this month.


All Dreamcast Games will Cost 0 Viz During the Last Week of the Month
For the entire last week of the month, Dreamcast games will cost 0 Viz so be sure to take advantage of this!


Dreamcast Games Do Not Require the Beta Test ticket this month
For this month only, or at least until all DC games have been thoroughly tested, the Dreamcast games will not require the Beta Test Ticket. The games will require the Beta Test Ticket once the month is over but in a few months none of the DC games will require the ticket since I hope to have every DC game tested within a few months. The reason the DC games currently require the Beta Test Ticket is because there are going to be games that don't work and games that have problem so to avoid many users complaining about games that don't work, this is the best solution to that problem. Be warned though that some games might not work that are available to play so keep that in mind before you spend 100s of Viz on a Dreamcast game.


If you have any questions or feedback regarding all of this, please reply to this thread:

Nintendo NES Netplay Tournament - Final Matchup Live Streamed ON Thursday at 4:00 PM (CST)

The Nintendo NES 2015 Winter Netplay Tournament which started 2 1/2 months ago is coming to an end Thursday night with the final 2 contestants, Foxyman1113 and Davideo7 (myself), facing off in a bunch of NES games. The matchup could last anywhere between 30 minutes to 2+ hours.

The even will be live streamed on my Twitch Channel here:
http://www.twitch.tv/davideo7

We'll be both on our microphones talking while we face each other so be sure to stop by, it should be exciting. Also be sure to follow my channel so that you're reminded when the event begins.

This tournament started with 64 users with a double elimination format. Selectable games include: Balloon Fight, Clu Clu Land, Dig Dug, Dig Dug II - Trouble in Paradise, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Donkey Kong 3, Dr. Mario, Galaga, Marble Madness, Mario Bros, Pac-Man (Tengen), Pinball, Tetris (tengen), Q-Bert and Wario's Woods.

Basically we'll be facing off in sets of 2 games until someone wins both games of a set. We both get to pick 1 game each for every set. We cannot pick the same game twice until every game has been played once. Since I'm in the winner's bracket, I have the advantage of having to lose twice in order to lose the tournament. Basically I'm in the winner's bracket and foxy is in the loser's bracket so technically if I lose the first matchup, I get knocked into the loser's bracket where we face off again.

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

Spring 2015 Netplay Tournament: Bomberman '94 = Sign Up Now for a Shot at $200!

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 offers the biggest grand prize of any netplay tournament I've ever hosted so be sure to sign up for a shot at $200, you have nothing to lose! This is also now considered an annual tournament; here are the final results from last year: 1st. Davideo7, 2nd. madison, 3rd. AceShock, 4th. Koda, 5th. Forest Dragon.


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.


Requirements:
-You must be available 2 nights a week between 7 PM - 9 PM central time Tuesday-Friday nights
-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. Click here to see if you're on the netplay ban list.


Prizes:
1st = 300,000 Viz or $200
2nd = 75,000 Viz or $50
3rd = 37,500 Viz or $25
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)


Signup ends and Tournament begins on Monday, April 6th.

Viz Price Drop for Most Retro Game Room Games

I've reduced the Viz prices of most of the RGR games and some of the RGR games have reduced by a lot. All of the small sized games have taken a price drop, the medium sized games are around the same (some may have gone up) and the large sized games have taken a huge price drop. For those who don't know, the games in the RGR cost Viz to help me avoid high bandwidth costs but I think I might be able to get away with dropping the prices of these games without any problems.

In return, I've added an ad to the play window while the game is loading. All of the revenue made from this will go to tRIUNE since he does a lot for the site. He currently already shares the site's revenue with me but I wanted to help him out by increasing the amount he gets since he invests way more time on the site than anyone else has over the past few years (excluding me of course). I'll eventually add an item to the item shop which will allow you to disable this ad if you find it annoying but it shouldn't interfere with anything.

One of the main purposes of the Retro Game Room has always been to introduce users to games that they've never experienced. So many of these retro games deserve recognition and if the prices are too high, most users will never be able to experience some of these great games. By dropping the prices the really large games, I'm hoping it encourages users to stick around the site longer by enjoying more games.

Vizzed Should Be Back to Normal

Vizzed security is always an ongoing project but things should be back to normal and the current issues should be fixed. Vizzed was hacked but no one needs to worry about any personal information or passwords being leaked. The hacker logged into a few user accounts but after discovering who it was, he was cool enough to reveal to me how he did it so that I could patch the exploit.

I've implemented a lot of new security which includes disabling certain HTML tags from posts, bios and layouts, locking various staff members to a single IP, and completely changing the way that users login info is handled on the site.

Some users may have troubles logging into the site after these updates. If you are one of those users or know of a user who is having troubles, clear your cookies. If that doesn't help, please contact me at davideo7@hotmail.com.

Thanks again for everyone's patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please ask in this thread:
