Board errors ...

Okay, the "sessions" error has happened twice in two days. How hard is it to code a friggin message board that doesn't have huge showstopping bugs in it?! Anywho ... later tonight I'll try applying the hack that's supposed to solve the problem. Hopefully it'll work. Incidently I haven't been around ...

The two most popular programs are Adobe Photoshop (recommended) or Jasc Paint Shop Pro. Both are quite expensive, however I've heard some people actually download them off the web ... or, that it's actually quite easy to find them on Kazaa and similar P2P services. Of course, you should never do tha...

This is rather easy to fix, I can just reset her PW. I'll send her an email to clear this up. I'm fairly sure its her, the IP the person used resolves to .au ... but just in case ... :)

This is definitely a worthwhile activity. I sent out a few emails awhile back to try to get permission to post some games on dosgames, but never got any reasonable replies. The problem is, a lot of the companies that made these games don't exist anymore, so who actually owns the intellectual propert...

You mods can click on the little "IP" button on all his posts to see the huge list of IPs he's used ... I banned the most common ones, but I guess I'll go ahead and ban these recent ones too ... *sighs* EDIT: Okay I banned every IP he's ever used ... the problem is that he's assigned dynamic IP's wi...

This is probably one of the most frequently requested features for the site. However, it's not as easy to do as you might think. The reason is, again, that the game listings on dosgames.com are not dynamically generated from a database (as they should be). They are, instead, hardcoded HTML. I went b...

Does anyone have an XBox? One of those things that would be nice to have but I just don't have the $$$ to justify buying (mostly just for Halo). I actually kind want a GameCube ... :D But yeah UT is/was great ... UT2003 looks good too, unfortunately the style is a bit more Quake3-ish but it should s...

Da_Goat is mistaken if that's what he told you. ;) I did email him today because he emailed me to ask why the board was down, but I don't think I mentioned anything about "code hacking". I have made two hacks to the phpBB code: 1) To remove the COPPA signup crap for people younger than 13 2) To stop...

Board problems *sigh*

Okay, the board is fixed. If you're interested in what the problem was, here is the thread on the phpBB help board that I read in order to fix the problem. It sort of describes what happens to cause it: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=39397 At least when this board screws up I can get hel...

Links to member sites

Hiya all, lakerzz8 has given me a good idea. From now on, any member who has achieved at least a ranking of "Experienced Member" (ie 50 or more posts) can have their personal website listed on the DOSGAMES.com links page, ie this page: http://www.dosgames.com/links.php Just PM me your site URL and I...

It's not a glitch. It's a feature that users don't like. There's no option for "Don't automatically forward users after posting a message", so I have to try to hack the code ... I thought I had figured out how to do it, but apparently not ... Anywho, let's try it now ... Okay it now no longer forwar...
