When GOG initially launched, it was also known as Good Old Games and mainly offered old PC classics, boxed with great tools like DOSBox so they could run on modern machines again. And DXX-Rebirth is also serving a similar purpose. And while GOG still expands their palette of games – old and new – and there are many other projects like DXX-Rebirth for other games, sometimes you might just not be able to find the right tool needed to get your most cherished game to run again. And if you ever find yourself in such a situation, I would advise you to check out DOSGamers.com. Here you find a growing archive of games with detailed tutorials describing how to get them running properly again. And they are not only stopping at DOS. Windows 95/XP games, emulators for different Home Computers and Consoles are also covered! It’s a really nice an dedicated site. Please check it out if you have the time. 🙂
During the past 3 days I put quite some work into the web presence of DXX-Rebirth. Initially I wanted to merge site and forums, giving it a unified experience, but that did absolutely not work the way I wanted. But now, things should be back to normal.
As you can see, there are a few minor changes on the layout of the site and the forums as well. Additionally, both should be completely mobile friendly now. I have also re-opened the forum registration and with a little magic behind the scenes, spam should be kept at bay.
Of course, feel free to give me your feedback (in the forums), too.
Thanks for your patience and have fun!
unfortunately, right after the activation of the new forums, some friendly users made me aware of a few issues. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the (new) database was partially corrupted. Do not worry, tho: The original forum content is still there and secured. Right now I am working hard to get the forums back up and running. In case it proves impossible to migrate to bbPress without corruptions, I will settle for something else. However this is hard to say right now. But until I can say something more specific, I will revert the site back to normal and keep the original forums closed.
I am sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
