Re: MARP hosting - UPDATE 2020-03-14

Sorry Rax, work weeks are busy! Looks like there is enough there now for the next five years of hosting! Thanks everyone, glad you'll get to enjoy MARP for a long time to come.

Re: MARP hosting - UPDATE 2020-03-14

Looks like there's a donation fee, because of PayPal's crazy fees I'd imagine. I think that most of the cost is covered now, another $30-ish should cover the rest plus any other donation fees. Thanks to all that helped out!

Re: Emulating other systems?

I enjoy having a frontend that's controller... controlled :) And looks nice. Retroarch isn't necessarily the nicest looking or with the best controls (hope you dont hit left/right while scrolling through a big list, or want to quickly search), but it's a nice option. At least there are others that l...

Emulating other systems?

I'm sure that many of you play other systems besides MAME, the classics like nes/gb/sega/snes/etc, on to more obscure ones. I've always been into emulation, and it's just so easy these days compared to 20+ years ago between the hardware and software available. Fond memories of Nesticle back in the d...

Re: MARP hosting - UPDATE 2020-03-14

The last time a third party had paid for the hosting, there was something in place to easily donate directly towards hosting costs on Dreamhost. I can't find where that is at the moment but I'm sure it's there somewhere. Seems it at one time was linked directly from the Dreamhost control panel, but...

Re: MARP hosting - UPDATE 2020-03-14

Apologies guys, emails from the forums here seem to get lost in my spam folders at best and I didn't see that I had a PM or replies to this post. And yes Weehawk, the main issue is just cost of maintaining the site. Though I should be more diligent about keeping the software updated as well. * check...

Re: MARP hosting

Another heads up... The current MARP hosting expires on 2020-04-18, after the current 5-year plan. I have no idea if there is any interest in extending this by anyone, I haven't contacted anybody yet. Many thanks to the previous help on extending the life of the site! In addition to my first daughte...

The "view unread since last visit" feature was an added mod, I'll try to get it working again soon.

Re: [UPDATED 2014-06-29] Forum upgrades

I don't know the last time the board was updated, but it is now running phpBB 3.2.2 - hopefully that cuts down on all the spam crap being inserted into the site. Let me know via email (cgushue@gmail.com) if there are any problems. As for the replay site problems, I have no idea. One of the other guy...

Re: MARP hosting

Also, I haven't checked around to see what other hosting options there are for the resources that marp uses. There could be cheaper or easier options which could make it worth it to switch.

I'll help as much as I can in any sort of changes that end up being done, with my limited free time.

Re: MARP hosting

I've actually been a bit lax in keeping things maintained... Updating the forum software isn't too difficult, for the most part it's a one button update sort of thing. The actual replay site I don't touch at all other than setting up the account to host the files and database. Barry (or someone else...

Re: MARP hosting

Thanks Wolfman :)

I just noticed that Dreamhost has a sale on, for about half price, if that's an option anyone is considering. Cheaper than my hosting... Expires on Monday though.

Re: MARP hosting

I wanted to contact Barry before saying anything here so it wasn't a complete surprise :) I have a beautiful little 3 month old girl, and otherwise busy with real life these days. I'm sure you've noticed I haven't exactly been active here in some time, but I kept things going with hosting because of...
