We do have a discord, but it's still not open to the general public yet. We want to make sure everything is rock solid before we open the floodgates :P

As far as a time estimate, I'd say pretty soon, it's mostly functional. For general news regarding the project, just stay tuned to this thread. I know I've been quiet here, but that's because we haven't had many major breakthroughs that warrant an update. When anything big happens, I will for sure post it here.

Oh man, Monster Hunter on Dreamcast? That would be a dream come true!

Yeah. That would have been cool. :D

I saw the title of this topic and read your post.
That is really cool news. Pulling off what you guys have so far, must have been tough.

From what I gather, MH1 is the key focus right now but they briefly tested the others using similar servers. 2 Dos functions in some areas but needs a lot of work and currently multiplayer doesn't work. G was also tried but out of the box didn't work at all. All 3 use KDDI so they're not impossible, but we're taking it one step at a time.

The western versions used a completely different protocol, and unfortunately due to this will likely never be revived. It's not a huge deal though, as a translation patch is being worked on and the most important stuff (items, menus, etc) is already completed.

KDDI? :shock:
That is the same thing, that many online Japanese dreamcast games use.
Eg. Vampire Chronicles, SSF2 Turbo X etc.

Interesting. :geek:

Figured I might as well open it up because every few weeks I get a DM here asking about it :P

If you want to play, join this https://discord.gg/YzmeXb8. It's the official server of the project and contains info on how to connect and play, along with other stuff like translation patches
