DCnow app (in developpement)

Post#1 » Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:43 pm

Hey everyone.

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.
v0.2 > Sound notification upon connect and disconnect

Upcoming features
I've had a couple of time where there was more than 10 player and perhaps a scrolling function would be nice!

CURRENT VERSION 0.2
Windows v0.2
Mac - Coming soon
Linux v0.2

You might need to install Java 8 in order to run this.

It's cool, as long as the update time stays long enough to not hammer the site :)

The sounds notification should surely be a Sonic ring sound ;)
