This super excessive dustin spambot whatever has now been banned. Some of it's posts are still at large though I forgot to view all posts at once. So I'm now fixing that as well. This one's gonna take a while. It seemingly loved the sonus topic going utterly nuts posting post after post about some sort of numerology and providing tons and tons and I do mean tons of random links, even a link labeled 2008. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. This bot had around 30 posts under it's belt when I first found it. Why wasn't it restricted? Simple, it was registered before that system came into play and chose today to strike.
On that note, I hope we can now go back to discussion of the Sonus.

Well done. I find it interesting that they programmed this one to put a location in, unless that was a paid human spammer which is quite possible. With all that said and done, we are now free to discuss the Sonus without anymore interruptions from this disruptive hooligan. Lol!

When are we going to get an audio demo of this thing. I really want to know what it sounds like.

There are a few game demos available with the original prototype, but they're a bit dated.

Hi, I was wondering if you could please give us the honour of working on the launch title for this product? It would be a great honour. Also, will this console be able to play proper games? Or will they just be  arcade games?

When looking at the gamemaker tool, it seems that you can make quite complex games for the console.

Hi guys, sorry I have been unresponsive in this thread, since the G D E was lauched for testing I have mostly been in the developer section. but I'm collecting feedback regarding scrapping th cartridge idea and would like input from everyone I can.

My new idea to battle piracy is for the sonus to look for a code on the games usb stick that will only work with that particular console. This means games would all have to be downloaded or purchased from one location which could generate the codes, like a play store.
People can make games and uplaod them to the play store, and select if they want them to be free or if they want to sell them. When downloaded we generate a code to be downloaded as well. This means each Sonus would need a serial number that would be entered whenever downloading a game to make sure they get the right code to make the game work. Or alternatively we will also have an automated phone system for non-internet users who can order games to be delivered on a usb stick with the code already on it.

What are our thoughts on this idea, I believe it would be easier from my side and it puts all the library of games in one place for easy shopping. Its also an easier distribution system to publish your games rather than advertising and marketing them yourselves.

please let me know what you think, thank you guys

This sounds like a great idea. And free games would absolutely not have the serial number/registration code to deal with, just the paid ones? That actually works great. It's probably the least invasive drm system there can be for this console. And if you wanna order as a gift for a friend, no problem, just enter their serial number and have them download the game, or, if they don't have a computer, you could send it to them on a usb stick in person, have them use the phone automation,  or what have you. That said, if the cartridge system is to be scrapped, would there be an sd card slot in its place? I just don't think people would really like to be playing a game with this usb drive sticking out of the machine If I understand it correctly, if someone orders the game on a usb drive, if they have an sd card at their disposal, could they copy the game over to the card since it' s just a standard usb drive? IN other words, is the key file, the encrypted one probably, stored on the usb stick with the game itself?

True. Matter of fact, nintendo 3ds did away with usb sticks and instead has an sd card slot in its place. Doubt the card could store games on it though, it seems to be just for the camera component. If the Sonus let you access everything, your games, your media, on one card, that would be great. To constitute this there could be a reserved games folder, kind of like how the Victor Reader talking book players have reserved folders that it looks to, $vrmusic for your music, $vrdtb for your talking books, etc. The idea is to name the folder in such a way that it can't be easily confused with others. $sgcgames for example? In addition, there could then be an explorer like interface that can access any folder on the card to play media files or what have you. And the usb port can still be there as an option. Actually, here's an idea. You did mention not having wifi support, and that's obviously understandable, it does cut costs after all. Unless your development board is a Raspberry Pi model3b or any similar environment, in which case wifi is built in. But the usb port could be used for a wifi dongle. You could put things like score posting and, if possible, an interface to the store, with the understanding that the customer provides the wireless interface in question. As I understand it there is only one usb port. I wonder if one of those keyboards that function as usb hubs can handle a wifi dongle? If not, connect the wifi dongle and keyboard to a powered hub and then connect the hub to the usb port. Unless you also plan to have a usb OTG port as well for things like firmware updates, in which people could use a short usb cable to connect a keyboard to. The way I understand it, you'd also like to market the console to some folks who may not have a computer. Well, what if they could download their games through the console itself provided thy were directed as to where to get a wifi dongle?

I like the idea. That'll make things much more flexible in many ways
