I have created a new website for the main site, might need some more work.

New template for the forum coming soon ...


there is more to do with the main site, there is more work still to be done, but figured better doing it in stages

No issues with new website. Looks nice and clean.

But why not provide latest build for download to everyone?
Make everybody a tester. Problems would be found quicker with every user using the latest build. Most issues on the forum that are reported have been fixed. It's pretty solid at the moment.

Controller issues will always be the main problems people have. In the future, maybe some work should be done to gather info on controller ID's and work out a way of providing a config for them.

The software does not have any auto update, so even if I release a new build does not mean every one will still be on the same build.

Never seems to be a shortage of work. I would like to see the enhancements stuff finished and some of the work I am doing on the gfx plugin done before releasing 2.4 officially. Like project64-video should be the default video plugin

:D though I have mentioned it many times lol ;)
I like PCSX2's build bot site on Orphis site..
http://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/
it would make a great template because it logs every change to git and stores copies going way back so it makes testing for breakage easier a bit...

It looks naked compared to the old but I like it a lot.

Looks very nice and clean, the design itself. But it's a tad barebones atm. It needs to do something for the PR. Mention Patreon, recent news with roadmap in the main site. Mention what Project64 is capable of to enhance games, broad compatibility, etc.

Also I agree with Frank I think nightly builds should be public.
It doesn't need to incorporate auto-update though that would be very neat. I think the buildbot needs to generate the last commit number in the titlebar of the emu... or better if it could be incorporated in the titlebar during compilation time if someone wants to compile Project64 manually. Instead of having Project64 2.x.9999.

most of that is planned to a certain extent.

Nightly build/build bot is comming, just need more time to get it finished.

I would still like to do a wiki for lots of the information
