Decided to add a DreamPi Companion section, since I have a dusty DreamPi section, to my Discord. So, If you enjoy DreamPi Companion, feel free to join. I'll post preview screenshots of new features before they're released. https://discord.gg/jQ58KNN

Is there any interest in 'block list' functionality? or rather, the ability to 'hide' or obscure certain players from view?

Might seem like a negative idea, but let me know what you guys think. Probably won't implement such a feature if it has barely any interest.

do you have a list of all of the current dreamcast online games that are working dns entries?
i would like to build a list to use for a dns server.
then patch all of the isos to redirect to the dns server.
rather than going through each game and viewing network activity to find them.
or viewing the 1st read in hex to find entries etc..
i figured i would simply ask.

I don't and I doubt they will be publically released. PCWZRD was too 'elitist' to tell me anything when I was building the core base of DPC, other than 'They're not available to the public'; Doubt he's changed & I doubt Kazade will release any information, as well.

My previous question still stands, if anyone reading this is curious.

This is exactly what I was afraid of.
We can't have people control this information and keep it locked away.
If they don't want the public to have the info.
Then we need to get it ourselves and then host other dns servers for redundancy.

My best guess is that they don't want competition; They want to centralize Dreamcast Online, most likely.
Even though I got praise for DPC from Kazade, I also felt some negativity; Might have just been me though as you can't really convey much emotion through e-mail. However, he never responds to me when I bring up DPC and he does when I don't...

Who knows.

since no1 seems to care about sharing info for each online games dns entries or backup dns servers. i guess i don't give a damn either. although i do find it sad that the "community" chooses to take this route.

Huh; The ability to obstruct current PSO players from view? Interesting idea.

I'll consider adding a games filter.
