New website
« on: December 05, 2016, 10:34:24 AM »
Dear all,

Welcome to the new RetroFE website. For the time being we will operate under www.retrofe.nl; in time I expect that www.retrofe.com will also point to this site. I apologize for any quality issues of this site; I'm not a web developer, and I would welcome any and all help to improve the quality of this site. :) Let me know if you experience any issues with this new site, and I will try to resolve them as quickly as possible.

A few months ago, Emb, the original developer of RetroFE, asked me to take over control of RetroFE from him. Unfortunately I have been unable to move over the old forum, so we're starting with a clean slate here. If there's any information you want to copy over from the old site, do so now before it's gone. If you wish to use the new forum without the surrounding banners, just use http://www.retrofe.nl/SMF/

I hope that we can start an active community here, and work together with the art developers at HyperSpin and EmuMovies to keep a vibrant emulation scene up and running. We're not in competition with other front-ends; just working together to enjoy a common hobby. If you feel you can help out in any way, please let me know.

Now that the new site is up and running, I plan to get back to programming new features. Let's make RetroFE even better, together!

I just fixed the attachment settings; the size of the directory has been changed from 10 MB to 10 GB, like it was supposed to be. :)

Interesting concept. :) Certainly worth considering IMHO, but I'd like to get some more input from others as well.

The only thing I would change is the whitespace on the main page, there is too much in my opinion.
I personally use the /SMF version for the forums but it doesn't work for the main page unfortunately.

Greetings I'm back. :)

Figure I'd check in to see what's new. On the original forums under the developer chat section I patched RetroFE to run on Mac OS. Unfortunately I didn't get to share my changes to the source back in January. I'd like to dive back in. Just wondering what direction the project has taken since then? The last I heard a new layout system was in the works which was later scrapped.

That's correct. Emb was working on a new layout system, but had to abandon it due to lack of time. I took over development in February, but I stayed on the XML path. I did manage to fix a lot of bugs, and add new features in spite of that though. :)
I'd welcome your changes; just let me know what to change. I'll clean up my bitbucket fork soon to reduce the size of the package, and work from a single branch from there on, so once that's done you could give me a pull request for your changes.

Should I fork your default branch? I see you cleaned things up 2hrs ago.

Sure, go ahead. I'm sure there'll be more changes in the near future, but now's as good a time as any. 😀
