o2jam is back.

They got a server up, hosted in Philippines. I've been playing a little bit, but not much. You guys should join up sometime, still fun!

They're hosting their server on a system running…Windows 7? Uhhh…

Might have to download this later to see how they're distributing the client. I occasionally fire up a private server to play at home (it's the server software that I cracked yeaaaaars ago for Milk-Chan to get rid of the advert spam) and the client version that I'm using required me to use a DirectDraw wrapper in order to run acceptably. Kinda curious what sort of measures they took to get it running on modern versions of Windows.

I mean, sure, at least until the 14th rolls around.

But even in its prime I wouldn't feel safe hosting services on it. Windows Server has a much smaller attack vector out of the box, and it's tuned for service responsiveness rather than desktop responsiveness.

Seeing stuff like that makes me a tiny bit concerned about the security of the service.

Well, it’s hosted in the Philippines. That’s all they got, they keep their equipment (hardware and software) as basic as possible hahaha.
But if anyone is down to play, either on that server or, Ian, if you got your server up and running, I’d be down to play. I’m getting back into it a bit and brings back a lot of nostalgia and fun! :)

I'd never let the server I have touch the Internet. Wayyyy too much risk there. We're talking software that hasn't been updated in well over a decade that probably wasn't written with security in mind.

As far as the other server, we'll see. I've mostly been murdering my fingers with DJMAX lately. :P

DJMax eh? I’ve been looking for a non virus filled copy. Help a long time brotha out! :)

I've been playing Respect: https://store.steampowered.com/app/960170/DJMAX_RESPECT_V/

It has all of the songs from Portable 1 and 2 (along with HD remastered videos) and a ton of originals.

As far as Trilogy is concerned, I don't remember where I got my totally legit copy of it (or even where it is, for that matter, heh). I'll see if I can find it.

Damn. 60 bucks for the game itself. Worth the money or what?

Double post. Fuck it, just bought it, including the DLC. Always enjoyed DJmax, looking forward to checking this one out.

Hope you like it!

I racked up 7 hours in about a week, and the only reason that number is so low is because of me getting addicted to Grim Dawn again as well as my tendency to destroy my wrists by chain playing hard charts until I'm a quivering ball of pain. :P

Well one thing I did which I shouldn't have, was bought the DLC songs. If I had known I could unlock them by playing the game, I wouldn't have wasted the money :-/

I snagged the unlock DLC because I saved $10 on the base game during the winter sale. Plus, I've already unlocked the songs so many bloody times already (twice in DJMP1, twice in DJMP2, and twice on the PS4 version of Respect) so I wasn't going to do it again. :P

Edit: Oh yeah, one more thing. If you haven't already, turn VSync off and use one of the locked framerate options. VSync has a tendency to introduce input lag, and it's reaaaaally noticeable with DJMR for obvious reasons. :)

Thanks for the tip. I did notice some audio lag when hitting the keys. I’m running an acre predator 165hz so I wasn’t sure if I shoulda kept it to vsync or not. I’ll switch it up
