I found myself refreshing http://dreamcast.online/now/
webpage quite alot and told myself that I should just make a little app that fetchs the data and alerts me if a new player comes online. It's not 100% done and I haven't made the windows/macosx/linux package yet, but they should be ready soon.
Also, I'm using Kazade's data to do this, as he provided the .json file openly, if there's a problem Kazade, please let me know.Features
v0.1 > Display online players name and game currently playing.
v0.1 > Fetches the Kazade's DCnow data every minute.

I've had a couple of time where there was more than 10 player and perhaps a scrolling function would be nice!CURRENT VERSION 0.2Windows v0.2
Mac - Coming soonLinux v0.2
You might need to install Java 8 in order to run this.
