RGR Plugin Discontinued (for now)

As of January 12, 2021, Adobe Flash has been discontinued in all web browsers. Since the RGR Plugin relies on Flash, the RGR Plugin no longer works.

Over the past few months, I've been upgrading and optimizing the RetroArch HTML5 emulator on Vizzed to be a good replacement. It works in the browser and requires nothing to be installed, works on mobile devices, supports controller and supports a lot of systems.

If you have save files from the RGR Plugin that you'd like to preserve or use with a standalone emulator, you can find all of your save files in this location of your computer:
Go into the folder that says 'User-' followed by your user id. In there, you'll see folders for each emulator and inside of those folders you'll find your save files.

The RGR Plugin could get updated to work without Flash but I haven't been able to find a solution nor do I currently have time to develop the skills and do this myself. This would require me to hire a developer and that is something I don't currently have the budget for. If I'm able to get people to help fund it, the RGR Plugin could make a return but for the time being, the RGR Plugin is sadly dead

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

LEGO Home Alone

I finally "mostly" finished the LEGO Home Alone house that I started building 3 years ago in LEGO Worlds. It became an annual tradition for me to invest 40+ hours into it every Christmas season. The Home Alone house is very complex (both the inside and out) and since the house has been greatly changed in the past 30 years, I couldn't rely on modern pictures or tours as a reference so I had to thoroughly analyze every scene from the movie.

This might be one of the most accurate replicas of the Home Alone house, or at least I couldn't find any on the internet more accurate. I recreated a few scenes from the movie to showcase the exterior and interior. Enjoy

2020 Vizzed Awards - Happy 16 Year Anniversary

I’m a day late at posting this. Yesterday was the 16 year anniversary of Vizzed Board but I wasn’t able to get to this due to a combination of being stuck at work all day (I do 12 hour shifts on the weekend) and then getting home and being dead tired.

2020 has been a crazy year for every single person in the world. It’s also been one of the worst years in recent history for the world. However, for Vizzed, it was not a bad year. Traffic stayed consistent compared to last year (with 2019 having a significant boost compared to 2018), I got a lot of site issues fixed and also added many must needed features. I was also able to find ways to cut server costs by almost half without sacrificing anything, which resulted into many of the games downloading so much faster.

I should point out that Vizzed had a rough start to 2020 though. At the beginning of the year back in early March, most of the site’s database data was accidentally deleted. Thankfully I had a backup from 6 months prior, but it took me weeks and 100s of hours to restore as much of that data as I could. So, it was about a month long project and many site features were down for most of that time. It also took place the same month Minuano revived the classic VCS competition. After that incident was resolved, I continued to focus on fixing the site and adding those much-needed features, and there were a lot. And Minuano was able to successfully revive the VCS the following month instead.

As mentioned multiple times already, Vizzed had a lot of site fixes and improvements made. I wanted 2020 to be the year that I focused on fixing things (and replacing the RGR Plugin) so one of the first things I started with was the site’s layout. I had greatly improved the site’s layout to make it more responsive by making it so that the site can adapt to almost any browser size and device type. My personal favorite enhancement, which was so big it was practically its own new feature, was the Complete Revamping of the Video Game Music Room. Other fixes and improvements included: Minecraft Server Fixed and Upgraded
-Some Old Post Layouts Getting Fixed
-Old Page Comments Got Restored
-Profile and Page Editing Issues Fixed
-Memberlist Search Updates
-Rebuilt a lot of the site’s logging system, which most of you don’t see but it adds better site security and makes content restoration easier
-Enhanced the load speeds of most pages on the site
-Fixed countless errors and bugs throughout the site
-Too many other things to mention here

There were a lot of features that the site needed or had but were severely outdated. One of the big ones was the new Image Uploader / Photo Album feature. Another new feature I started working on but haven’t finished yet (haven’t even posted about yet but will in the near future once finished) is a “page details” feature which not only shows lots of useful information about every page on the site, but also allows you to rate and bookmark any page on the site. Other new features included:
-Game Queue and Game History
-Video Game Characters Features Rebuilt from Ground Up
-A few site features for the Minecraft server, which are still in development but will soon be finished

2020 is also seeing the end of the RGR Plugin. The RGR Plugin relies on Flash technology but as of December 31st 2020, Flash will be discontinued in almost all web browsers. There’s still a possibility of a new plugin for the site that replaces the RGR Plugin but for the time being, I’ve been putting my focus on enhancing the RetroArch HTML5 emulator on Vizzed. It works on almost all operating systems and plays on almost all devices, including mobile devices, so it’s a great replacement. I’ve been customizing my own build of it for a while now by adding my own custom features, an on-screen touch controller for mobile devices, better playability for all devices, adjustable options, etc.

For the remainder of 2020, one of my goals is to get the remaining site pages that use the old site code/layout upgraded to the new site code and there’s really not many left. My focus in 2021 will be the community (I know that was suppose to be my focus for 2020, sorry ?) and replacing the RGR Plugin.

EX Palen is the New RGR/VGR Admin

EX Palen will be the new Site/VGR/RGR Admin of Vizzed, replacing tRIUNE. tRIUNE had this title for over a decade and so of course it's sad to see tRIUNE finally step down, because he did a lot for the site and especially during the peak years of Vizzed. Overall I would say that tRIUNE has done more for the site than anyone else in the history of Vizzed (not including me of course).

This decision to promote EX Palen to this role was a decision made between the admins, the global mods and myself. This doesn't make him 2nd in command but it does make him equal to the other admins, who I guess all share the title of being 2nd in command. He'll be overseeing the Retro Game Room, the Video Game Room and will be in charge of the staff who help out with those areas of the site.

If you want to congratulate him on his new title, you can do so here:
