Welcome to Dreamcast-Talk. I'm sorry you are here on such terms but I would like to make some things clear.
My intent was to contact you to discuss Dreamcast-Talk and sylverant sharing a shipgate or some sort of cooperation. In the mean time we were just testing the code you put out. I have been away from the dc scene for a while and recently started a new full time job so after I put the server up for testing I pretty much forgot about it.
I thank you for taking the time to reply to my post. I'm honestly not that angry about the fact that a server was put up with my code, I'm more angry about the fact that I don't appear to be credited anywhere on the site for the work I put into it. Nor does the site even mention where the server software came from. Nowhere does it say that Sylverant is GPLed, or is the source pointed to. That's the part that irks me the most. To someone completely unassociated with your site that just happens to come here, it seems like you all have written the software yourself. In all honesty, if it wasn't for the fact that the part in your instructions that has the chat commands weren't in my own words, directly taken from my wiki, I probably wouldn't have even known myself (and of course, if a random google search hadn't landed me there in the first place).
I apologize for not contacting you sooner. We didn't mean to steal your software, or any ill will towards sylverant. We love your project and want to support it as much as possible. I would like to reverse anything we are doing that does not please you.
The main thing I'd like to see is credit given where credit is due, and any source changes that were made to be published, as I have said in my posts on the forums so far. I'm glad that you all are finding my software to be useful and relatively working. That said, I would also like to see the shipgate you all are running eventually get folded together with mine, but at the moment, I'm not entirely comfortable doing that (as I don't feel that my server is of production quality as of yet, hence why I'm not publicly telling people how to connect to my server unless they ask me directly
Basically, what I'd like to see done as soon as possible is credit given to me (something like: This server is using Sylverant PSO Server, Copyright 2009-2010 Lawrence Sebald. (with a link to my site)), as is appropriate. Also, I'd like to see the source code to the server as it is running currently, and any changes that have been made to my code. Both, very reasonable requests, in my eyes.
Also, I'd be happy to work with you guys on a collaborative server, as soon as I'm ready to open my server up to the public.
One last question, out of curiosity, what kind of machine are you all running it on (specs, Operating System, etc). You can PM me that if you'd rather not post that publicly. I'm mainly just curious here.
