    Making sure it works in Safari/Chrome (they both use webkit, meh) is feasible. No one, and I mean no one, should be forced to make a site IE-compatible, but if you must I suggest the strongest bottle of liquor you have on hand.

    Nobody had by birth, it's something everyone can learn. =P

    On topic, more staff would just drag us more into the point where we don't want to be: Too many staff members. What we need is to find out who are the correct persons, not who may be the correct persons.


    Now don't get me wrong Q, but I think, the project supervisors can do more than just projects. Why not something like a non-forum staff (main-page stuff in general)? It's just my opinion, but I definitly think that would help you out. I know you are a busy man, I know you don't want to spend your whole life on this site, so why letting other people assist you?


    Just an idea, not a reproach.

    More people should be offered to help actually. There are too many staff members on SSRG. Some aren't coming back and some aren't around because this place is a ghost town. Time for some cuts.

    I'd love to help any way I can. I'm sick of this place getting absolutely no new content.


    May I also suggest better quality control for Hacktube? I've seen way too many pallete hacks.

    Hacktube is no longer available at this time, it shall be replaced with a Projects section and will be fully functional in due time.

    I have to apologize for the delay in finishing the site, I essentially got lumped with a massive ecommerce job at work, and working on php for 8 hours a day, then coming home... well the last thing you feel like working on is php again!


    I'm trying to make some headway with SSRG, at the very least I'm hoping I can get Project Submissions working so I can finally open up the projects section once more, hopefully by the end of this weekend. After that I want to finish off the disassemblies section and release another version of the EZ Installer that gives the user the option of the SVN Disasm or the Hivebrain "Classic" Disasm for Sonic 1. Then the rest is just content writing. I'll try and keep you posted!


    As for offers of help, if anyone wants to help me out with the guides give me a shout, as thats the part that other people can assist with the most. I do have a high standard (hence how long it's all taking), but I'd be happy to edit rough-cut guides. I have a specific list of ones that need doing, like I said if you're interested let me know.

    Ah, good to see you're back (You could've done a note that says you aren't here for several weeks though =P).

    And I thought I will just have an orange rank that does the excact same as a normal member. =P
    In other words, I'm down with helping.

    You can do the same with the Sonic 2 2007 disassembly too.

    The only thing I would like for the disassembly is support for x64 computers. I run on Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    Another good reason why you shouldn't use the SNASM68k version Qjimbo. Use the ASM68k version so us 64 bitters have a chance to hack as well. =P

    Bah, you 64-bit'ers shouldn't have the ability to hack, what with your luxury and ability to enjoy the most updated technology and intermedia, how dare you, grrrr (No really, I'm just taking the piss), upgrade appears to be necessary now, for (like above) 64-bit machines and I think it has more assembly operations, let alone the ability to include sources on it's own, without needing a second source document to fuse all sources together before assembling.

    I might as well enlist my help here. In case you need someone to do the design or html and css and js or even php, I'll do it. That's just 'cause I really am bored to death nowadays. Speaking of Hacktube - Maybe we should do a system that all logged in members can submit hacks, but these hacks are only visible to logged in members. If, let's say 10, members play the hack and say it's more than a palette edit, it could be displayed to the public and comments would be enabled. If this doesn't happen in a while, like 3 months, the hack gets deleted.


    MarkeyJester: I think 64-bitters should get to do asm hacks, since I know how it feels to be left out of ASM hacking, having a Mac, and just recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on it.

    Hacktube isn't coming back. No point bringing it back since all it's caused is bother by both members and the emulators themselves.

    Well, isn't that a crying shame. How are we going to post our hacks now?

    Reading the topic before posting is helpful. We replaced Hacktube with the Showroom, which a much more moderated place. One of the main reasons is the that there were beginners keep uploading their shitty hacks and thought they are super duper awesome.


    Note: The showroom isn't done yet, don't upload any hacks yet.
