Nope, sorry, no avatar uploads. I'm sure if you can't find a hotlinkable image to use as your avatar you can upload it somewhere ... everyone is probably tired of hearing the words "bandwidth limit", so I won't have to mention that again. :D I know avatars don't take up much but any way I can keep t...

Using file sharing utilities is legal, as long as you're downloading files that can be freely distributed legally.

Yup Geocities doesn't let you hotlink images (or any files other than webpages for that matter) from remote sites. If you get webspace with your ISP, you could use that ... or, the best list of free webspace providers is:

That page has an auto refresh, it's supposed to wait a few seconds (I dunno exactly how many) and then automatically transfer you. I'm pretty sure it counts page loading time as part of the wait time, so if you have a slow net connection it may seem like it fowards you automatically ... (ie, if it w...

Cut 'n' pasted from the FAQ : Unzip the program to the same directory as the game you want to run slower. Then instead of running the game normally, type "MOSLO /## GAME.EXE", where ## is a number (actually, percentage ... using /50 runs the game at half normal speed) and GAME.EXE is the program you...

I personally think 255 is enough ... I think a sig should be your name, and a short message, not a big ad or anything. While we're on the subject of sigs, I'm getting really tempted to remove the MARQUEE tag ... IMHO when used in (multiline) sigs it's kind of annoying ...... so, while I hate to do s...

If its a ROM, links to it of course can't be posted here. If its a patch for a ROM, that would be okay. There's a big list of patches for SNES games available here:

Good eye, I meant to remove that link awhile back but must've forgotten. The DOS version is no longer available on that page, and the author doesn't want the DOS version distributed anymore, so that's that. The Windows version is still available there but of course it won't be listed on DOSGAMES.com...

I think a lot of the problems with Ikonboard were due to the fact that it was storing all the databases using it's own format, rather than using mySQL. It had a mySQL option, but I didn't use it because supposedly there's no difference. (Riiiiight.) phpBB uses mySQL tho. And lots of other boards hav...

About to announce the new forum

Unless anyone has any objections, I'll switch the links on the main site to point to this new forum later tonight, and probably send out a newsletter as well.

A fairly painless install I'd say :)

I just turned HTML on ... all the basic stuff, except for stuff like SCRIPT, FORM, etc. ...... ie, stuff that could be abused. Make sure that you uncheck the "Disable HTML in this post" box if you're using HTML in your messages.
