If that is the official Sega app, it worked fine for me on Win7. You need to split an AVI video into an M1V (mpeg-1, video only) and a WAV for the audio or the app will either crash or render infinitely

There's also a homebrew SFD toolkit on DC-Swat

Some evil person decided to hack into the Dreampipe game server and change all the passwords. Not even the host could change the root password. I'm pretty sure I know where the breach was, so once the new server is up hopefully that doesn't happen again

It's unfortunate because it was probably someone from one of the other Dreamcast sites. And I generally keep to myself and have stated many times Dreampipe is not meant to compete with anyone, it's for the people here to hangout on their console like they do here if they choose. And the game servers are backups if there's any downtime on the other servers

I can't say it 100% WAS someone from another DC site. But there's been known occurances of people DDoSing this site and flooding the server here. There's a slim chance it was targeted by another non-dc party. Keyword targeted

The problem I have is I couldn't even install it at all. A self launching program would have worked out for me in the long run.

Well thanks for an alternative. I'll have to check that out and maybe learn russian.

@scaryred That's f*cking amazing lol

@Xiden, if you found info like it's old address/domain name I'd be interested in doing something like that in the future

Speaking of other Sega machines using the internet; There are sources for Linux kernels for the Motorola 68000 CPU. Which both the Mega Drive and Sega CD use. In theory it would be possible to create a Linux distro for Sega CD, and take advantage of the Mega Drive and 32X (I think, the 32x uses dual SH2 CPUs. So you'd really have to know what you're doing in order to be able to "SLI" with the MD/CD's M68Ks for added processing power). The Mega Drive has a keyboard and mouse which I was surprised to find out, and there's the Mega Modem and X-Band modem. If again someone really knew what they were doing, drivers could be coded to use all of those peripherals with the Linux kernel. You could then use 80s style internet browsing. In the 80s they had Telnet forums and websites, IRC was a thing too but you had to be an ulta-mega nerd, or attend a high level university in computer science in the 80s to actually know what it is and use it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iccQZCxDd60

If that was done you might, MIGHT, be able to run an xFree86 desktop enviroment session if resources were manages well and the session was run on one of the 4 CPUs between the MD/SCD/32X. The Dreamcast Linux disc out there (well the one i've tried) has xFree86 and you can use it with mouse

Point of elaborating on all of that is, if that existed in the future I'd expand also to have a Telnet BBS/IRC "website" specifically for the "Mega 32X CD" embedded Linux super computer (super computer in the sense that it's a quad CPU machine, even if it would only have ~1.5MB of RAM)

Seriously what's wrong with some people :(, if only there was a way to keep these folks away from a working internet connection.

Now that's a beautiful machine there. Now they need another shot from the back to show off the Sega modem :D

Dreampipe will be back up tomorrow night. I didn't have the $ in time. I was hoping it would hold out until tomorrow but it will only be down for less than 24 hours

This won't happen again, just crap timing and tight on funds

This is why some people asks if you could set up a Patreon. Even if nobody gives you the funds, you still would have a backup plan even if you ever do so. It's kind of a win win situation here since you really don't have to nag people either and it can last indefinitely. I can see a lot of potential towards Dreampipe and that suggestion alone can move the site forwards.
