Hi everyone,

Me and Hazard(Imp) have teamed up on a new site which i thought of the idea in the ClickDB post which some of you may have seen.

This site is all about helping people and sharing.
If you have made a cool engine, example, effect etc why not come along and post it for everyone to may be what someone has needed for ages to complete there work you never know .

The possibilities of the site are endless but it will only work with the help of all you great clickers out there sharing snippets of work for example or mabye just cool examples you have made. Or even if you can't finish something why not post it up for someone else to have a try.

We may expand it to deal with things like php and other things later on but for now we are focusing on mmf & tgf.

So we invite you all to come along and join us at

It would be better if it wasn't forum-based in my opinion, but good idea, would be great if this takes off...

The site is still to be done which will have an articles system and a load of other things.

The forum will control the files and the discussion.

Sounds like a good idea, since TDC is starting to show it's age...

What's it going to be made in, PHP?

If any of you do PHP, here's a trick you could try:

Make it perform certain functions on uploaded games.

Basically, if someone uploads a .gam file, you can get PHP to check the name of the author, the number of times it was saved in TGF, the number of levels, the number of midis in the game, the names of the midis (in short format, like mymid~01.mid i think), etc. It can rip the game icon and convert it into a small bmp file, pretty much anything you want.

You're only really limited by the processing power of your server and your understanding of the .gam file format (don't ask me about .cca, lol).

To use PHP for performing binary functions, load the file as a string and use the ord(); function to get the ascii value of any character in the file. That'll give you individual byte values. You can build your own functions to get short integers, long ints, signed and unsigned values, etc, all based on ord();

I dunno about any security risks this could cause, and to save on processor time you'd probably want to just find a couple of in-game details like number of levels, etc.

get it to check this data on upload and then store it in a database for future reference so it doesn't have to crunch through all the bytes every time someone requests the page.
