  Welcome To The New NeoGeoForLife.com!

Well, it's taken a little longer than I would have liked, due to various issues, but finally it's here! Not only do we have a new design, we have also upgraded to the latest version of PHP Fusion. One of the reasons I decided this had to be done asap was that some very bad security issues were found on the version we were using before. Rather than risk the site getting hacked again I decided to upgrade, and I also figured "hey, it's the ideal opportunity to add some extra features'. Hopefully all our members will like them:


New Design:

The design has been changed to (in my opinion) a much slicker one. I know there is a possibility some of you will not like the new theme and would like the old one back, so I do have a backup plan for that. While I found it very hard to get the old theme working with this new site, I do have another theme called Gillette which is more like the old blue theme we used before in design, just a different and brighter colour scheme. If you are logged in you can go to the 'edit profile' option and choose it. I will be adding some more themes very soon, along with one that will be very similar to our old design, so if you don't like this one there will be something for you very soon. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated however! :)


New Forums:

The forums have undergone a massive change, and I'm sure you will all agree it is for the better. The design is a lot better and easier to navigate and there are an absolute ton of new options and cool features. You can add a lot more detail to your profile (including a little bio and list of games you are playing), you can have a buddy list so you can find out when your friends have recently been online (feel free to send me an invite :), better statistics, and lots LOTS more. I'll leave you all to go check them out and discover for yourselves!


Bug Fixes:

A lot of bugs were brought to my attention recently, including a problem where users were unable to log back in after changing their password. This has now been fixed, along with many other irritating bugs. If you do spot anything that is not quite right however, again, please let me know so it can be fixed! Browser compatibility should be improved too, I've tested the site in Firefox 3, IE7, Safari and Opera, and it seems to display great in all of them for me. I know all our users have their own favourite browsers so this should be good news for those of you that don't use one of the 'big two'.


Issues:

As with anything new, there are one or two issues, here's a list of the ones I know about. Don't worry though, I am working on fixing these!


- Chatroom is currently down. I did have it working on my test site while the new NGFL was being setup, but since I moved it it's stopped working. This is top of my list of things to fix however, so with any luck it will be sorted out tonight. I will update this thread accordingly once it is done!

Update: As promised, chat is now fixed! There's a new "who's online in chat" preview, which is displayed inside the "Who's Online" panel to your left, so you can always easily see if anyone is around and chatting!


- Forums ranks: I've added some new ranks to the forum (based on post count) and fixed the ones that broke on the old site (thanks for letting me know priest!), but the custom ranks we used for mods and some members are not working. I just need to find a mod that will let me add them again, which shouldn't be too hard. More on this soon.


- No notification on front page of new private messages. When you receive a new private message, you will get an email to let you know (unless you turn notification off). However nothing is displayed on the main page to say so. You will need to go into the forums and check the little panel at the top of the screen. I will get this fixed very soon.


Update: I put the User Info Panel back on the right, it's kind of doubled up on the main page due to the panel that's part of the banner, but it's no biggie as it's only shown on the main page anyway. At least you will see a notification when you have new messages now!


- No Arcade (yet!). I did mention that I was going to get the arcade back online. Well, I did try to install the arcade for PHP Fusion 7, but for some reason it did not save high scores. I will have another stab at installing it, and I'm pretty sure it will work just fine with a little bit of messing around. It's something I definitely want fixing because I do need my revenge on certain people who had "unbeatable" high scores. You people know who you are! ;)


- Some BB buttons not working and making the page refresh. I know the ones in the edit profile page are not all working. I'll check them out when I get the chance and try to fix them! Anyway, enough of my rambling. Take a look around and be sure to let me know what you think. Constructive criticism will also be appreciated if you have any, and we will work in improving the site as much as possible. I am very happy that this is all online though finally, I hope you all like it as much as I do! :D

I will do if I can find versions that work with the new PHP Fusion. Either way some more themes will be coming your way soon. More info as soon as I can sort them out! Smile

The Neo Geo is 100% the best 16 bit system! Just felt the need to reaffirm my love for the system.

Kraut Buster has been pushed from summertime to the end of the year (at the earliest).
