The Recent Site Issues are Fixed

Since I've been doing SEO lately, it caused a surge in bot traffic. That bot traffic overwhelmed my logging system which caused some pages of the site and some features to just not work. It took me a while to fix because it took me a while to figure out why parts of the site were suddenly not working. My previous announcement is also related to this same issue.

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

RGR Plugin, PlayStation and Rom Hacks Fixed

I'm not sure why it happened but the site's server had an update which caused many pages with errors to not load. Unfortunately there were a lot of pages affected by this, which included:
-All RGR Plugin games (in the popup window)
-PlayStation game pages
-Rom Hack game pages

These are all fixed now. If any other pages stopped working over the past few days, please let me know ASAP in the following thread and I'll get to work right away on fixing them:

Video Game Trivia on YouTube

I'm planning on doing a Video Game Trivia series on the Vizzed YouTube Channel where I have a series of games (10 for now, but the rest of the videos will probably have 25) that you have to figure out. The answers will be in the captions but not right away. I will be revealing the answers a few days after each video comes out. Some videos will have cash prizes for the first person to get all of the games named correctly (or the person to get the most named correctly when the answered are revealed). I'm hoping to do at least 1 video a week.

Here's our first video:

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

Vizzed YouTube Channel Updated & Organized

Many of you wanted me to revive the Vizzed YouTube Channel and bring back video uploading. I'm working on the uploading part still but I've already invested many hours reorganizing the Vizzed Gameplay Videos Channel:

The channel has nearly 15,000 videos so there was a lot to go through. I completely reorganized the front page of the channel. I plan to create a trailer for the channel in the upcoming weeks and I also plan to create a new banner. The channel also has nearly 15,000 subscribers which is far more than any of my other channels so I took the advice of a few users and decided to monetize the videos (should help me generate an extra US $200 a month that I can put toward the site).

I created a playlist for every game system that we had videos for and placed all of the videos into their proper game system playlist. This lets you navigate videos based on game system now. You should be able to find the game system playlists on the main page and you can also find them here:

I also created a few extra "special" playlists.

Some of my most memorable memories on this site involved netplay. I had so many amazing times streaming + netplaying with users. So I had to create a playlist with the videos showcasing the netplay on Vizzed (some have commentary and some are archived streams), which I've always viewed as being one of the most innovative features in the RGR: Minecraft Server
The Vizzed minecraft server has had a huge impact on so many users of this site. It was a community of its own and many of us recorded various events that took place on that server, specifically the many competitions I hosted. Although the server is still up, it's not nearly as popular as it was in its prime but having this content available can help put into perspective how awesome that community was at its prime, and maybe going through this will make some MC veterans want to come back on to the server:

Rom Hacks and Homebrew
Some of the most popular games in the Retro Game Room were the rom hacks. We have one of the biggest selection of rom hacks on the internet and while we no longer can have the Pokemon and Mario hacks, there's still plenty of hacks playable on Vizzed; and that's what made the rom hacks so popular, they were already patched and ready to be played.

If you haven't subscribed to that channel yet, please support it by doing so

YouTube Video Editor Application

The Video Uploader on Vizzed stopped working a few years ago after YouTube made an update to their API which rendered most video uploading scripts useless. Many users have requested to have this feature back and while it's currently not possible to bring it back in its original form, I have a solution which will allow "qualified" users to add videos to Vizzed: I would make these users "Editors" of the Vizzed Gameplay Videos channel.

Editors would be able to upload their videos to the channel using the YouTube website. And they would be able to edit their videos using the YouTube Studio interface. You wouldn't be allowed to edit the videos uploaded by other users but you would be allowed to edit and organize all of your own videos including videos you uploaded in the past.

I'm willing to hire 3-5 users
For now, I'm willing to hire 3-5 users and I'll expand this depending on how well this all goes. Simply respond to the below thread letting me know why you want this position and why you're qualified for it. Keep in mind that this is all volunteer work, there is no actual pay for this position but there are a lot of perks to being a staff member on Vizzed.

-Upload 3+ videos a month
-Upload 2+ hours worth of videos a month
-Videos should be good quality
-Video titles and descriptions should be editted based on the guidelines that I'll provide
-Should be willing to log into Vizzed at least once a week

-Your videos can be of any length as long as you meet the monthly expectations
-You can upload more than the monthly expectations
-You can record gameplay of any game, including games not in the Retro Game Room

Most of the Nintendo NES Games

Most of the Nintendo NES games didn't work with the HTML5 emulators. They worked fine with the RGR Plugin but more and more users are using the browser emulation, especially since the RGR Plugin requires a few extra steps to use now days.

NES was the first system to be added to the Retro Game Room (it was called the NES Game Room at that time) and that was 13+ years ago. The games that we used back then weren't the best copies of the games and better copies of the games have been made available on the internet since.

I spent almost a full day going through and fixing them all. I hated to have to prioritize this over all other things but it needed to be done. Most of them should now work fine but if they don't, be sure to let me know in this thread:

EDIT: I should've pointed out how many NES games we have on vizzed: 3,447. And I fixed over 2000 of them! (keep in mind that not all of them were broke). Honestly, that was incredibly boring but I stayed pretty focused and did almost nothing else that entire time. Feels good to have that taken care of

The "No PM Left Behind" Initiative

Ever since starting a full time job outside of Vizzed nearly 5 years ago, I haven't been able to prioritize reading / responding to my Private Messages. Even before that, I often got behind on my PMs. So as you can imagine, I have years worth of PMs to read and respond to, totalling literally 1000s of PMs. I've usually made it a habit of skimming through my PM inbox and reading the PMs which have titles that seem important but sometimes I've even failed to do that.

While I'm going through my inbox, I will respond to any Private Messages that I receive during this process. My goal is to get caught up by summer 2021 (before it ends anyway). Afterward, I'll begin working on my Notifications. I hope to be caught up with everyone before the year ends. I feel terrible that it's taken me this long but I've been the only developer for many years and development related stuff is time consuming and things have come up so often over the years that I have no other choice but to prioritize coding. Life outside the internet also sometimes gets in the way with various life issues coming up from time to time. And with having a wife and kids, there's only so much time in a week to juggle all of these things (for example, I rarely game and haven't done much gaming in the past 6+ years due to just not having the time).

All CD Systems in the Retro Game Room Work Again

The CD systems in the Retro Game Room should now all work again. This includes PlayStation, Dreamcast, Sega CD, Sega Saturn, Turbo Grafx CD, PC-FX, CDi and 3DO.

Video of Using the RGR Plugin in 2021

In case anyone is still confused as to how you can continue using the RGR Plugin in 2021, I've put together a short video demonstrating what you need to do in order to continue playing the games in the RGR (or until I get the RGR Plugin updated).
