    @ONESTARv2 @robinhoodie Xbox and GC cross-play is a goal, but until everything is finalized I can't say for sure that it will work. My suspicion is that it will without too much trouble (as it seems to so far, anyway). 2/2

    @ONESTARv2 @robinhoodie Xbox voice chat is actually Peer-to-peer, as far as I know. There shouldn't be much (other than filling in IP addresses in packets) that the server needs to do to support it, in theory. 1/2

    @robinhoodie There are adapters available to plug a USB keyboard into one of the Xbox controller ports. They should "just work" once everything is ready, in theory (I haven't tested this just yet).

    Looks like it is still Christmas in the lobby on PSO for Xbox, even after all of these years... https://t.co/bn2FICrbxB #pso #sylverant

Much Dogecoin. Such donate. Wow.

I’ve been asked many times since I started Sylverant how to donate to support Sylverant or to show appreciation to me for writing/maintaining it. My answer has always been the same: I don’t want donations that aren’t actually needed for keeping things going. As Sylverant has been graciously hosted for free since I first set up the server back in 2009, there has never been any point to me accepting donations. That still hasn’t changed to this day, and hopefully won’t change any time soon.

That said, I thought it might be fun to allow people to donate with the idea that donations would go into a pool that would be used on the server in some way. I’ve toyed with a few ideas in my head such as special events rewarding hunters for killing certain enemies in-game (yes, Sylverant can actually track and store that data, although it doesn’t at this time). So, I think I’ve come up with a good way to make that happen in the future without having to deal with any real money.

Starting today (well, last night really, but I doubt anyone noticed it), I’m accepting donations in the form of Dogecoins. Dogecoins are a crypto-currency, much like Bitcoin or Litecoin (it is actually derived from Litecoin). They are commonly used for tipping people on Reddit these days, so this seemed like a logical choice. It doesn’t cost anything to get started with Dogecoin other than potentially a bit of your time (you can even find sites that give away free Dogecoins), and it is all open-source too. So, to that end, there’s a new donation button on the site underneath the .beat time widget. Once we get a bit of a stash built up, I’ll start thinking of how to actually put them to use — after all, it doesn’t do me much good to spend time working on a feature that people aren’t going to use. 😉

      Well, as I said up there in the news post, it’s not so much to reward me as to potentially reward players on the server at some point in the future. Of course, that all hinges on whether or not there is sufficient interest in it. 😉
