Shuouma has released the source code for all the servers he's coded to date; this includes the server software for Planet Ring, ChuChu Rocket!, PBA Tour Bowling 2001, Starlancer, The Next Tetris, and Maximum Pool (master server). This software has been released as open source under the MIT license and can be freely used, copied, modified, or distributed. This is a huge step in making sure all the games revived so far will be online for as long as the internet still exists. Long live Dreamcast!


All the source code can be found on the new Server Software page in addition to any other Dreamcast server software and/or source code that has been released to date.

The amount of games that can be played online on our precious Dreamcasts has increased significantly over the last few years. This is due in large part to a man known as Jonas Karlsson, better known as Shuouma around most parts of the internet. Some may call him a magician but I think that may be selling him short. Shuouma is responsible for reviving four online games in just the last year; these games include ChuChu Rocket!, The Next Tetris, PBA Tour Bowling 2001, and Worms World Party. Not only that but he played a huge part in helping Petter3k with Alien Front Online and released improved and more stable servers for Planet Ring and Starlancer. I think it's safe to say that Dreamcast fans owe this man a huge thanks!


So who is Jonas Karlss...

Is there a better way to start off the new year than another online Dreamcast game being resurrected? Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Worms World Party is online once again thanks to the amazing Mr. Karlsson! Efforts to try and get this game back online have been going on for a long time now. Just getting to the game lobby proved to be fairly simple but actually being able to start a game was something else entirely. Fortunately we have a genius in out midst in the form of Shuouma who managed to finally track down the final piece of the puzzle. The game is now fully playable online and it's awesome! I must once again give a huge thanks to Jonas for reviving yet another piece of online gaming history! Who knows what the rest of 2017 wi...

Many of you have eagerly been awaiting this moment for over a year now and the highly anticipated moment has finally arrived! Ladies and gentlemen, Alien Front Online is back online! Petter3k was hoping to have the game back online sooner but due to being busy with non-AFO related real-life work, he wasn't able to dedicate as much time to the project as he had originally hoped. In order to get things moving quicker, he enlisted the help of Jonas Karlsson a.k.a. Shuouma to help with deploying the server and squashing some of the remaining bugs. The server is not bug-free however and is in an open beta phase. Petter plans to release the server software as open source once beta testing is over and everything is bug-free.
