No I dont.
But yeah I guess if I offered a home to PBW I would. Isnt it more efficient? What would be the problem with SEV?

SE5 needs to invoke DirectX (8) to run combats.

Ahh. Yes that would be back to shipping the games to a windows machine to process since I really REALLY wouldnt want to run a windows server.

Hey Geo, thanks for hosting pbw for so long. Almost a decade is a quite long time to be hosting such a demanding site out of charity. I feel very old for being part of an online community for 9 years. I'm 22 now, which means I must have been playing SE4 since I was 14. I'd feel even older if it weren't for mac. Hi mac! *waves*. Thanks to your efforts I've made quite a few long term friendships which have grown past just playing video games. You did more than just host a server.

Take care Geo,
-darkant

With Geoschmo's permission and assistance I have developed a replacement for the PBW site. Beta testing went well and I believe it is now ready to open to the public. It can be accessed at http://SEPBW.NightscapeCreations.com. Sorry; can't afford a new domain name...

I will probably not be back to this post; suggestions and comments can be submitted via the form on the new PBW site. Thanks.
