Sonic Adventure Online - More Features Added

Post#1 » Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:02 pm

Yep you heard right the site is now 100% back online in nearly 16 years!



Huge props to Dan and Jial on Dreampipe.net for being the key components on bringing back these sites as they did almost all the work

Sonic Adventure's Website
Sa1's site allowed/ can do now these things
-Compete in World Rankings for the best times, score, rings in levels
-Download Dlc like new courses for the Twinkle Park Circuit among other things
-Have rankings for Dlc
-Have a Chao Daycare system to share your Chao all over the world
-Upload you Chao times with the Chao rankings
-Fun Room contains the Black Market and a Chao Doctor
-Hints
-Boards
To use these features simply make an account on http://bb.dreampipe.net/ and your good to go
Here is some footage of these things in action NOTE: not recorded in Vga so it looks like crap

-The scrapped Online rankings although you can still access the menu with codebreaker

hey you really outdid yourself with the announcement post. this would've been completed a lot earlier if it were not for my procrastinating, doing stuff during the day then having beers at night

but i've been using a crap laptop with 1gb of RAM which is far from optimal when i need like 5 tabs open, all of which use a little less resources than facebook (slow\crashy). so that is the only somewhat legitimate excuse for my sloth

how about changing the thread title to something like "Sonic Adventure Is Back Online (Again)!" ?

one more note is Jial deserves about 99% credit, this took him awhile to complete, which is why i made the above public, having another party involved in a project who takes forever to do minimal work is very bad for motivation especially when the project is in his free time
