Pretty neat. The resolution is WAY too high, though.
it's supposed to resemble the 2000's you dumb mazda
Websites were way better looking than that by the 2000s.
This site is like windows93.net but worse. But, I mean... You can't really top them. They literally have their own myspace clone built in.
Allowing these gets the website more exposure, of course an advertising company would do that.
The same "dumbasses" are likely DRM and subscription model advocates and in that way, they're already having lots of success on influencing company policies.
>>71693>The same "dumbasses" are likely DRM and subscription model advocates
That's a lot of unwarranted cynicism. I don't think there's that many people "advocating" for either. Everyone knows they're shit, including the people who use them. They stay around not because anyone loves them, but because they make money and most people don't give a shit.
Not sure what complaining about embedding has to do with DRM and subscription models. If you hover over any of the videos on that site you can see the source and it's giving them views. There is the story of people who make mashup videos being forced to discontinue their work because copyright laws get in the way of art.
Are you suggesting that embedding videos is going to become a paid youtube feature eventually? Video authors can prevent people from viewing their sites through embeded links already.
Well no fucking shit. They're PR people. What do you expect?
gonna try to revive this thread as a 'cool website' thing
this guy gives a summary and personal score to tentacle monsters in video games
found it while searching for a certain video game character for a thread
how did you find out about this site? seems pretty niche
There was an image in google images from it when I was looking for a character that himself is pretty niche I guess
when I was more interested in art I had a blog where I would analyze the artwork of popular hentai artists and try to understand why their work was good. It's still up and I get emails on errors from google search console and gets one or two clicks a week. Kind of neat how things like that exist.
That sounds interesting, which artists did you find most impressive while doing this? May want to check some of them out and follow them if I'm not already.
whatever was popular at the time. Most of the quality artists are SEA and some are imitation Western. Everything I wrote was kind of what you'd find on Sankaku except I was trying to learn art theory.
AnimeFlux, Hews Hack, Ootomo Takuji are some of the more recent ones before I stopped in April 2016
interesting pixelart focused content site
This seems to be a character viewer for one of those jpeg lottery phone 'games', Destiny's Child. They have a lightly animated idle pose and you can click them for a short animation. https://live2d-dcg.github.io/
Finally we can experience the depth and complex mechanics of gacha on PC.
hate wikia, even gay girls can't save its shitty interface
Yeah... I really miss the actual Wiki layout. The "wikia" version is really terrible. The only that's sort of salvageable is the Fallout wikia because they delibeately made it more similar to the actual Wiki style compared to the hundreds which use the standard wikia layout.
I'm not sure I understand, what does the site do?
It lets you download things from the steam workshop. So, imagine you have a game you bought through GOG (or more likely torrented), but wanted to use some mods only on the steam workshop. Well, all you need to do is just paste in the steam workshop URL, and then the site gives you the files in a zip so you don't need to have the game on steam to get them.
Ohhhhh, that makes sense. Pretty useful tool then.
Ohhh, wow, that's a nice find. Access to the steam workshop is a pretty big reason to buy a game on steam so that's a big benefit.
Interesting blog site on model making, of the ecchi variety.
Can't believe they have a sexy lady that comes with an attachable /qa/...
Glad there's been so much love poured into the preservation of Flash. If only Adobe would've made it open source instead of just killing it off.
This guy's old fighting game site is still up and getting updated
>>71687>It's both hillarious and unsettling to know that if Google were to ever listen to these dumbasses youtube content would never be able to be linked from anywhere else on the web.
We're already experiencing that now. Most music videos and any other promotional content that isn't by a regular content creator but rather a corporation have pretty much disabled embedding. Now with this dislike button gone as well, who knows what the state of YouTube just will be in the next year or two. It's already an unusable piece of trash. Really need to get people to start uploading on alternatives more now than ever. Archive anything you can and reupload it everywhere too. Get as many people away from YouTube as possible.
>>80513>Archive anything you can and reupload it everywhere too.
This is the thing that worries me the most of YouTube going stupid. There's just way too much there. YouTube has been around for almost 17 years now, and has an endless amount of content. If it ever goes down, or decides to self-sabotage itself and delete a bunch of stuff, or some other thing happens, I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that an irreparable amount of information will be lost.
Same here, but they do remove important content and channels go down every single day. There was a wave of people who deleted their channels back in 2019 worrying over legal stuff when the whole COPPA thing was going on. People kept telling others that they would get lawsuits on videos if it was marked for kids or not marked for kids. I know it became a whole nothing case but a lot of people went insane worrying about it back then.
This pretty neat. I guess they collect a bunch of data and create public reports on stuff. It's nice that they release monthly population estimates too. It makes the US seems really slow seeing as we only do a proper census every 4 years and then just go off of that until the next one while guesstimating inbetween.
Ah, nice this thread is still alive (barely).
This site is some HTML5 (or whatever) conversion of an MS-DOS racing named Sky Roads. http://openroadsgame.com/
The www has so much potential, it's a shame nothing lives up to it.
A little janky, but fun
Here's some sites I had in mind when I made the thread:
Also not specifically related to Castlevania, but there's an old sprite resource site that is still getting updates!https://www.spriters-resource.com/
I can't remember bookmarking this one, but it looks like it's something like archive.org that lets you look at old websites? The default one is nintendo.com and it works. Looks like it has some related sites, too, that could be interesting.https://theoldnet.com/
This thread isn't specifically for old sites, these are just the ones that I happened to use recently.
is nice but be warned it's full of teens
The last couple of years I have been looking out for Japanese blogs to self-archive, as they usually go poof with little notice for any reason.
This one particularly interested me as it's been around for over 20 years now and still gets some content updates.
Apparently, for most of it's life it was also hosted on PS2 Linux. He has some interesting mods for his Dreamcast that he did long before a rasPI was ever around either. He's a real Nig(g)a
>>98849>full of teens
Merged a new thread with this one, so this post's "when I made the thread" is no longer accurate
woah, almost forgot that ability to graft threads existed
I was trying to track down the full version of an ED song and I want to point out how nice it is that a seasonal anime has such a good website. https://saitou-anime.com/
Look at those little 8-bit sprites moving around in addition to all the great visuals. People put a lot of work into this.
Oh, if you're unable to find the main page:
(it seems to have a script where it sits on the main page for a few seconds and then loads that one, but it might not work in all modern browsers)
People say social media killed small-scale sites like this, but honestly, I blame wikis. Like, why seek out a self-hosted site about bugs when you could just look them up on Wikipedia? Or why visit a Simpsons fansite when the Simpsons wiki has all the Simpsons info you'll ever need?
A neat site that is a search engine for finding old websites online.
It surprises me how many old sites are still hosting at all and even some of them are still updated with their old layouts
I think most people are aware of it, but I just wanted to remark at how amazing it is that GBAtemp is still seemingly going strong and I was able to get some firmware for my old DS flashcard that was uploaded back in 2011. (the firmware is older, but they seemed to overhaul their download system at some point)https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-m3-sakura-faq.89197/https://gbatemp.net/download/m3-sakura-touchpod-for-m3-real-m3i-zero.4374/
Paired with another site like romhacking that offers rom hacks and fan translations of older stuff (https://www.romhacking.net/
) and it's good to see some old parts of the internet still doing their thing.
For download hubs there's no reason to move away from them, it's just that they become ghost towns very quickly if messed with like theISOZone or Emuparadise. Sigh
And on direct download sites people are far less cautious than on torrent trackers
GBATemp's forums also used to be r9k-lite
My old forum haunt of choice. Hehehe. I was one of those people with thousands of posts.>>107679
Presumably some "off topic" subforum? Alas, some of those are doomed to enter such territory when given a chance. I never used the forum outside of topical things and never even had an account to comment.
