    Welcome to the Sonic Stuff Research Group (SSRG), the Sonic Site for the software and hardware guru. SSRG has been going since 1998 and remains a respected name in the community as a source of Sonic the Hedgehog research, development and ROM modification.

    Today, SSRG stands as a centre for user created content. We provide hosting for hacking projects and utilities, as well as letting you comment on everything on show.

    The site will go offline for a period of time in the next day or so. Seanie, the server admin, is moving his operations to a new provider. So, if the site goes down then you'll know why. If everything goes smoothly, then we'll only be offline for several hours.

    As the thread title states, the forums have been upgraded to the latest stable build of IPB. Which is just a maintenance release.

    To avoid any possible display or usage issues it's advised that you do a forced browser recache (control + F5 in most browsers) of the site. Aftewards, you know the deal, if you find any problems, then post them here and I'll try and fix them, if I can.

    I will make one thing clear: I've not done any skin template clean ups yet. I'll do those either tomorrow or over the weekend. Can't be arsed doing them now. Once they're done, I'll post an update asking you to do a browser recache, again.

    Not really a site matter, but certainly a problem on the forums. Over the last year, we have had a fair amount of posts reported using the report button below. Now, in a number of cases this has been fine and the reports have more or less been made with good intentions, something that the staff and admin here appreciate. What we don't appreciate however, is the reports which are pointless and in some cases, infuriating to read.

    Now, I don't wish to discourage anybody from using the report button, as it can be a helpful tool for the staff, but I want people to start thinking more carefully before they use . Is the post offensive? Is it in the wrong place? Does it breach any of the SSRG rules? If you answer yes to any of these, feel free to hit the button.

    If I keep seeing reports where people have reported a genuine hack post, only to ask us when it will be released or where they can download it, they'll be reprimanded and any repeat of this behaviour in the future from them will result in them being taken away from the site faster than Gary Glitter's grandkids were removed from him.

    I hope everyone reads and understands this, it'd be a shame to have to start banging heads just because people can't be arsed reading.

    As you can guess, SSRG is no more. This site is instead going to be the Nineko Stuff Research Group, or NSRG.


    Rather than hacking Sonic games we're going to be hacking delicious Italian food instead whilst praising the Holy Cat for giving us this blessing.


    I believe nineko may be making a statement shortly, once he's recovered.

    Not so much news, but this is something that has been getting annoying. Lately I've seen a fair amount of people posting about their hacks in the Discussion and Q&A section of the forums. This is NOT the place for showing off your hacks. The place for that is the Showroom, as implied by the subforum name and description. It's one thing to move one every so often, but I've had to more four today alone, and more previously. I've also noticed that it seems to be a lot of new members who are at fault.

    Basically, it comes down to this. If you can't be bothered to look around and work out what should go where, even when it's pointed out to you, then you're not doing yourself any favours in terms of gaining full membership. This won't apply to every misplaced topics, as sometimes the topic can hit a grey area which makes it difficult to place. Hack topics are an exception, they go in one place only.

    Anyone who keeps failing to heed this warning will not only find the topic deleted, meaning they'll have to type it out again, but it will be taken into account during your account review. It's getting to the point of stupidity, you have been warned.
