CAPS Update

We have finally got around to updating the site again.

New:
Super mega huge WIP report for the last two months (about 45Kb of text)
Plenty more games dumped, but now we have about 600 more waiting to be dumped

We are very nearly there now...

I have no problems connecting to the site. Massive read, btw (the WIP). Fascinating stuff, indeed!

Is this the right URL:
http://www.caps-project.org
as I can access any other website I try except for CAPS at the moment. I only started having this problem about a month ago so I thought the CAPS project had died.

I'm glad I was wrong.

Well I'm reading it fine and I'm really getting into the WIP section now. Like Twistin says, a very interesting read

Hmm, I am not sure why you are having trouble...

The site is actually on a forwarding service at the moment, so instead of the offical URL:

http://www.caps-project.org

Try:

http://homepages.enterprise.net/wilk...ps/index.shtml

and tell me if it works!

I guess the top-level DNS server you are using has crapped out on our URL

Yeah, as TG said...

FYI: It is probably going to work like TOSEC files - you will be able to get them - but not from us. There will never be anything available from the site - unless it is a game that was originally written by one of our members - or we have special permission by the original author or copyright holder.

Also, these games are *dumped* NOT necessarily *analysed* yet. Apart from other stuff - we need to prove they are verified 100% working and authentic AND enable them to be remastered back to disk before we release them (okay maybe not all until we have perfected a hardware solution to write them).

(no releases have happened yet - you will know when there has)

Well, I can imagine how many mails you get a week in your mailbox with one and the same question: "when will you make games available for download?"
That must really be a pain in the ass.

Actually, it is not too bad as I have automatic responses to some things - and that is one of them. :o)

Once I have (nicely) informed them appropriately, they are normally quite nice.

It is the many big questions that come it that take all the time up! I don't mind too much though - it helps me improve the FAQ (which yes, does need updating badly - I have a big "todo" list ;)
