Oh, THAT'S what it does...
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 30/09/04 10:46am CEST

A little misunderstanding on my part means that the Dream17 Store isn't explained fully. The store is set up through both and GAME UK, and clicking a product takes you to their sites. However if you actually make a purchase Dream17 gets comission on the product. So it's not too bad. I'll make sure this is better explained on the Store Page itself at some point soonish.

Site Update Complete!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 29/09/04 6:57pm CEST

Meaning the Store is online and there's some new Softography+ content, as well as a new article, an Interview with Martyn Brown, some more Ask SuperFrog questions, and this shiny penny which I get to keep in my wallet for luck.

If you notice any of the content is, infact, not there (mainly screenshots or broken links) please let me know.

Content Update Begins...
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 29/09/04 1:58pm CEST

I'm starting a huge Content Uodate about now, so you might notice a few changes as the update progresses.

:: edit ::

And then he broke the News Page. Aren't I clever? I'll re-snazzify it in a few minutes.

:: edit ::

Most of the site has been updated now, all that needs doing is the IPF/CAPS files, which are currently linked to but not uploaded, and the Dream17 Store itself. A shazzier-looking set of buttons should now be at the top of this page. If they're not, or if any other page fails to update, press CTRL+F5.

WorMatriX News
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 26/09/04 12:16am CEST

I've been holding off on this particular piece of news for a while now but I think it's time you guys knew what was going on.

The WorMatriX - the sister-site of Dream17 focusing almost entirely on Team17's immensely successful "Worms" series - will be shutting it's doors very, very soon. The site has been in a "Back soon" state for a while now, as Braininator was developing a new design for the site which would not only look snazzy but would incorporate all of the original content and then some. However I have made the difficult decision to close the site dowbn and to merge its content with Dream17. My reasoning is simple - I've always been a fan of Team17, and it seems silly to seperate the content purely because Worms has been Team17's most successful franchise to date.

As previously stated, the content from the site is not being wasted and a majority of it will be coming here, while a small portion of it will be donated to RunForYourLife's superb website, Wormtech. Two WorMatriX staff members, FatWhitey and Braininator, will also be making the jump and they will be focusing mainly on Worms content and news. You may already have noticed FW making news updates regarding Worms Forts website developments, and Braininator will be writing an article or two for the future.

So what does this mean? Simple - it means that Dream17 has gotten that little bit bigger and a whole lot better. In time that "WMX" Logo up to the right will be replaced with a link to the Master Site itself - So there we go. In the meantime, wait patiently for that content update and it'll happen. No three year waiting for you.

Hang About - Where's That Content Update?
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 25/09/04 10:54pm CEST

Whoops from Yours Truly - I was so busy packing for my holiday that I was unable to make the update! A busy schedule (see, I spelt it right this time, Pooka) means that the update probably won't happen until the middle of this coming week. But it will happen, regardless of time (or size!). In the meantime, thanks to the handful of you who have sent emails of praise and so forth, and thanks in particular to someone who's sent me information regarding yet another undocumented Team17 title, which will go up on the Softography+ soon...

Legal Notice regarding ROMs
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 06/09/04 6:45pm CEST

Due to the large number of emails I have had concerning this matter, I'm maknig a News Post to clear things up:

Team17 have given us permission to offer their Amiga titles for download in both .ADF and .IPF formats, and it is for these reasons that the CAPS Project have given me access to the files. As far as I am aware it is only Dream17 and Back2theroots who have permission to host their Amiga titles, and only we are aloud access to all of these titles.

That should suffice until the next Content Update.

AB3D and Worms Copy Protection Work-Around
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 05/09/04 12:54am CEST

I've been reminded that Peter Gordon created a patch for Alien Breed 3D called, interesting enough, PatchAB3D. This patch, amongst other things, allows you to work around the Copy Protection for AB3D. Additionally, there's a program for the Amiga version of Worms called WormShell, which does the same thing. I'll definitely be hosting both here. Just so you know.

Dream17 And CAPS
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 03/09/04 12:14am CEST

The CAPS Project (Classic Amiga Preservation Society for those not in the know) has generously given me access to IPF disk images of every single title Team17 has developed and/or published. This is a good thing - CAPS Disk images are generally much more reliable and true to the original disk than ADFs. The only downside is that if you don't already own a copy of Alien Breed 3D or Worms, you will find yourselves unable to play the games as they are Copy Protected. The IPF images will go up with the content update. Whoo.
