RGR Plugin 2022+ Update = RGR Plugin is Back!

You can now use the RGR Plugin again as you could in the past. All you need to do is download this new installer (RGR Plugin 2022+ Update). Make sure you already have the RGR Plugin installed first. This updater has its own flash supported web browser built into it (Firefox Portable 42). So when you go to play a game in the Retro Game Room, the updater launches the game in Firefox Portable 42.


Instructions
The RGR Plugin is no longer supported with modern browsers, so that's why you need to install both the RGR Plugin and the RGR Plugin 2022+ Update.

1. Download and Install the RGR Plugin
If you don't already have it installed, download and install it:
VizzedRgrPlugin-2.41.msi

2. Download and Install the RGR Plugin 2022+ Update
After you've installed the RGR Plugin, download and install this:
RGR Plugin 2022+.msi

Note: The installer might get flagged for not being secure, and that's only because it's new and hasn't been installed on many computers yet, so it might give a warning due to not having any information about it. If a windows security window comes up, just click More Info and from there, you can choose to install it anyway.
Note 2: Do not update the Firefox Portable that comes with this installer, otherwise the games will no longer work since updating it will remove Flash from the RGR Plugin. If you do accidentally update it, just reinstall this.

3. Restart Your Computer
You'll need to restart your computer after you've installed the RGR Plugin and RGR Plugin 2022 Update. If you already had the RGR Plugin installed and just recently installed the RGR Plugin 2022 Update, you'll still need to restart your computer.

That's it! Go and enjoy playing any of the 40,000+ retro games in the Retro Game Room. All of the RGR Plugin related features should work.


I apologize that it took so long to get this updated. I started a fundraiser 1 1/2 years ago and finally got this out. This is mostly due to Tom Gibson (RGR Plugin developer) not having the time to continue working on it, so I spent months searching for other developers, and every time I went to hire someone, they would end up not being able to do it. Eventually Tom G. returned to continue work on it, so we all owe him a huge thanks for doing this for us.

I also want to thank everyone that donated toward this 1 1/2 years ago. There was a lot of financial support, and I couldn't have been more grateful for all of that

June 2022 Minecraft Server Competition - Create Anything 5 = US $75 of Prizes

As a way to utilize the Caves and Cliffs updates, which were recently updated on our Vizzed.co Minecraft server, I created a new world on our server named Clohygeous. This new world is our first Creative world with Generation.

Competition
Build the best "anything" in the Clohygeous. The portal to the world can be found in the hub. Everyone has full Creative powers and flying abilities in that world. You can present your submission in the form of a video (which you should upload to YouTube) or screenshots (which you may upload to Vizzed).

Vizzed Minecraft Server IP:
Vizzed.co





Rules
-Up to 5 submissions per a user (this also includes structures you've teamed up on)
-Minecraft Staff may compete and I may compete
-Please separate your submissions with 1 submission per a post
-You may work with others on a submission (you'll then split the earnings)
-No command blocks
-When showing off your submission, you cannot use any resource packs (but you may use shaders)


Prizes
1st = US $50 or 100K Viz
2nd = US $25 or 50K Viz
3rd = 25K Viz

If me or one of my kids win, who may also compete, then the cash prizes would be awarded to the people who took 2nd and 3rd place. In other words, no matter what, I'll be handing out $75 worth of prizes to Vizzed users that are not me or my kids (unless those Vizzed users choose Viz instead of a cash prize).


Additional Prizes
Minecraft Competition Winners will get a trophy added to their profile (which they'll eventually be able to display and show off), they'll get added to the Hall of Fame page and they'll also have a Minecraft Trophy icon next to their name until the next Minecraft competition (as a way to show that they're the reigning champion).


Tips
-To increase your chances of winning, do a video instead of screenshots.
-Show a before and after so that people can see how much you did.
-Claim your land so that no one else can modify your creation.


Competition Ends
July 1st

Competition Starts
Now

I'm hoping this is the return of our Minecraft Server competitions! So be sure to participate and help spread the word of this competition so that we get enough participation for me to justify hosting these every month again

Any PHP Developers Interested in Coding for Vizzed?

My development time is very limited these days, so I figured this might be a good opportunity to open up the doors for a few users with PHP skills to help develop stuff for Vizzed. Users will be given limited access to the site functions and variables, but they'd be free to create mostly whatever they want.

You would do your coding right here on the site and I'd even give you your own database. Here's a preview of what the PHP Developer Center looks like


Please note, you would not get paid for doing this. This is just for users who want to help out the site or want to utilize / expand their PHP skills. You wouldn't get access to the actual site's code, but you would get access to a lot of useful variables. You also wouldn't get access to the site's main database but you'd be given your own database. These restrictions are to prevent any accidental or intentional harm to the site.


Features include:
-Access to over 30 variables, which include name of the logged in user, details of the logged in user, page information, and more!
-Supports Javascript and CSS
-The ability to collaborate with other "qualified" users
-Full customization over your pages, including the ability to change the page name, description, etc.
-Full stats about your pages, including page views, who viewed it, full logs, who is currently on it, etc.
-Earn Viz and CP when your pages are used
-Your own database
-And lots more


Requirements:
-Must be an Elite Users or a Trusted User who has been on the site for over 5 years and has at least 1000 posts
-Must have decent PHP skills (please provide examples of things you've done)
-Tell me what ideas you might have and why you would like to be a PHP developer on Vizzed


There's a limited number of users that I'm willing to promote to PHP Developer, so be sure to apply right away if you're interested.

Be sure to respond to this thread with your application:

Vizzed Color Scheme - What needs to be changed?

Something I've wanted to do for a while now is change the color scheme of the site. Keep in mind, I'm not talking about the layout of the site, that'd be too much work. I'm talking about the colors used throughout the site and the background images.

I've made attempts in the past to modernize the look of the site but I've always had users fight back. I think now is the time to do it though since the site needs to have a more visual appeal to new people. The current theme would always be available as a selectable theme.

As far as the color scheme goes, what are complaints that you or others might have about it? What are you suggestions? I know a common complaint is that the site is sometimes hard on a user's eyes and I'm not sure if it's because it's light on dark or if it's the greens contrasting with the blues. Either way, any feedback would be great.

Here's something I've been working on. Let me know if this is any better or if you have any suggestions to it:
Vizzed 2022 Theme

With that new theme, the background color is actually not part of the background image, allowing me to easily change the color (or perhaps dynamically, similar to what was seen in the 2022 April Fools prank).

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please don't hesitate to suggest them here:

I updated the version of Minecraft that we use on the Vizzed.co server from 1.16.4 to 1.18.1! It's been well over a year since we updated our Minecraft server. It's been equally as long since we last updated most of the plugins.

Vizzed went down over 2 days ago for unplanned reasons. I had contacted Hostgator and they said it would take up to 48 hours for the server to be brought back online. Here's what they had to say:

"It would appear that your server encountered an issue when it was rebooted due to the newest kernel installed being corrupt. I was able to get the server back online by booting into the older kernel installed on the server, then reinstalling the new kernel.

The server is now running and the services all appear to be running with out any issues. This issue you encountered is not a common thing, and just a random failures that can happen rarely."

I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas

I'm a little late at posting this (I usually do this on the 23rd).



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 '7 Days of Vizzed Christmas'. Be sure to visit the site each day to claim your random Viz gift!



Christmas Games in the Retro Game Room
The Retro Game Room has 40+ Christmas games. You can find them all here:
//www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?sort=best&search=Christmas&searchBy=theme



Christmas Video Game Music Stream
I'll be streaming Christmas / Wintery themed video game music 24 hours a day from tonight until Christmas is over. You can find the stream here:
https://www.twitch.tv/videogamemusicradio


Christmas Video Game Music
I put together a big playlist of Christmas themed and Winter themed video game music:
https://www.vizzed.com/videogamemusic/playlist.php?id=4



Retro Christmas Game Montage
A few years ago I put together a video highlighting 12 Christmas games (non hacked):

2021 Vizzed Awards - Happy 17 Year Anniversary

2021 has been a decent year for Vizzed as far as traffic goes. Vizzed has had a 20% traffic increase in the past year.


And even though my activity dropped in the final months of 2021 on the site (due to me getting an IT job), I managed to fix quite a few bugs and issues throughout the site and even update some features and add a few others. And most importantly, I got through a majority of my Private Messages.

Some of the fixes and updates:
-Completely Revamped the Video Game Music Room
-Resurrecting the Vizzed YouTube Channel
-20 – 50% Site Speed Boost
-Tons of new Features and Stats for Many Pages

Additional fixes and updates included Fixing NES Games, RetroArch HTML5 Emulator Enhancements including New Options, Help Center Updated, SEO Optimization of Site Pages (demonstration of how much it helped here), and so much more.

Vizzed also saw a semi-discontinuation of the RGR Plugin due to Flash being discontinued in all major browsers. I had started a fundraiser to help fund an update of the RGR Plugin that doesn’t support flash; that fundraiser exceeded expectations, showing that there was still a huge amount of supportive members on this site still. This updated version of the RGR Plugin is still pending since it has been difficult to find a qualified developer. Now I said Semi-discontinuation because the games in the Retro Game Room can still be played with the RGR Plugin using these instructions.

Something else that happened in 2021, which was an unexpected surprise, was the resurgence of the Vizzed.co Minecraft Server. Somehow the MC Server saw periods of high activity throughout the year, almost matching the prime days of the MC server. HUGE thanks to the MC Staff for helping take care of the increase MC traffic.

So I’ve been MIA in the past 4 months due to my IT job, as mentioned already. However, I’m slowly getting back more free time as the high demand of my job slowly decreases. I’ve been averaging 50 hours a week at my job, sometimes a little over 60 hours a week, but I’m slowly taking that down to around 45 hours a week.

I’m hoping to make 2022 the year of tournaments, events, competitions, etc. I’ll be streaming again with users and also putting together community based YouTube videos. Maybe we’ll see the return of past events, we’ll definitely see the return of real prizes, and if all goes well, we’ll get plenty of participation.
