What's going on, guys?
well, it's nice enough to tell you
As long as Web TV still works...
It's means you need to finally upgrade windows ce to xp.
Can you still view porn with it though?
the browser is too old. as a safety cloudflare is blocking it to prevent potential exploits
ResetEra obviously doesn't want any Sega fans dirtying up the forums.
I'm about to try AWeb on my Amiga. I best not be disappointed.
holy hell, reminds me of when i was a kid and had to use my dreamcast as a computer when my desktop died. i had the monitor and the keyboard/mouse set up on my desk... it was impressive how much of the net you could work around with the browser and 3rd party tools users created to download/view content on the DC. i remember using email/aim/msn and the IRC client built in to make chat rooms with school friends or find random rooms to chat about whatever...
Clearly, ResetEra is too busy working on Dreamcast 2 compatibility.
That’s a huge oversight!
The first weekend I had my DC, I legitimately hosted a porno party with some friends who spent the night. It was... awkward.
But damn we abused the shit out of the zoom button in the browser.
Because everyone is disabling or blocking older protocols/clients because they're giant exploits due to Heartbleed and other exploits. Means that every browser past a certain point is effectively shut off from the internet now.
Looks like Cloudflare is blocking it based on the DC browser's useragent, probably some old ass Mozilla if it was the same browser they used in GameCube Phantasy Star Online.
Planned obsolescence, time to give us more money.
I love this thread
AWeb doesn't work either. About to try netscape:
yes, back in my day, you had to drive to the store and pay money for your webbrowser...
Dreamcast was my first access to Internet at home, parents didn't feel like spending the money for a computer before that. I eventually got one like six months later but it was really nice for the time being. Met a bunch of people on the Sega IRC that I still talk to.
This thread is, uh, going places.
why are you using your Dreamcast to visit ERA in the first place?
Keep in mind, this was 1999. This was before most of my friends had the internet period, yet alone the internet in their bedrooms. And my internet was on a 32" CRT television, way bigger than the computer monitor in your living room. This was a time when going out into the back woods to look for dirty magazines older kids had left behind was legitimately probably the only way you'd see a boob or two at the time.
I remember the summer right before I got the Dreamcast watching cinemax all night long hoping they'd show something (and they usually didn't). The Dreamcast was like this:
this thread is great
Also, can resetera please update to unblock the 90's Dreamcast porn party audience please.
Maybe trying dialing in through a different BBS number.
I remember turning on porn around friends when I was younger a bunch, always made things really awkward.
did it constantly out of an unneeded urge to hide that i was secretly really gay, but still lol
Was the dreamcast the first console to have a browser? Seems pretty unnecessary for the time considering how slow it'd be. (except apparently for stealth porn)
Between Porno, Sonic Adventure, Soul Calibur, Power Stone, and Ready to Rumble, that was probably one of the most fun weekends of my entire life. Got the Dreamcast on 9/9/99 which was a thursday, took friday off, and had a 4 day glorious weekend.
Also, the dreamcast had 56k (which was standard at the time) and you could get a broadband adapter, which makes your DC just as fast as a modern internet appliance.
I don’t wanna speak for the tech team, but this is clearly a huge oversight that needs to be fixed ASAP.
Why not try a combination of both WebTV and Dreamcast.
Anyone care to check the PSP browser?
I knew there was a reason why they called it the ＤＲＥＡＭ cast
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
can i use an amiga to surf resetera?
