Restored: Sonic Adventure Chao Daycare (Dreamcast

Post by Internet-Explorer » Tue Jan 31, 2017 4:12 am

Today, Jial and Tyro finished reverse engineering the Chao Daycare online feature for Sonic Adventure

With Chao Daycare, you can upload your Chao to share with the community, and download Chao others have uploaded

Simply place a Chao on the VMU transporter, highlight a VMU, then press and hold Y+A until you hear the chime. You can then go to "Internet" in the main menu. Redirection should be automatic, but use Dreampi DNS for good measure

Once at the Homepage go to: Community --> Chao Gardens --> Chao Daycare
---------------------------------
Other online features for Sonic Adventure have been restored recently:

- World Rankings, you can upload you times, high scores, and ring scores. Occasionally for DLC prizes like a new Chao or special Chao

- VMU DLC events like Rebook contests from 1999-2000, you can upload your scores and clear times to a leaderboard like World Rankings

------------------------------------

To use the Sonic Adventure online features, you need to create an account on http://bb.dreampipe.net
This is due to the SegaNet ID storing in flashrom is now long since defunct

You can register using any Dreamcast browser.
However, posting on the forum does not work currently using NTSC versions of Sonic Adventure due to it having the earliest version browser (no Java). PAL versions should work if you disable Javascript

You cannot post using PC as its designed for use only on Dreamcast

---------------------------

For people on Chao Island who don't know how to get your Dreamcast online see this video:

Have fun everyone!
(Don't forget to thank Jial and Tyro for the months it took them to complete this 8-) )

Thanks for the sticky

Again it would be awesome to see a lot of people from this community using these features

Sonic Adventure also has a built-in IRC client, if you guys (Chao Island moderators) setup an IRC server for this site, I would link #chao to the game

So I'm curious, I know that it was made only for use on Dreamcast, but is there any chance at all of it coming to PC in any way, shape, or form? I'm not super knowledgeable about this subject haha

Not really. I don't think PC/GC versions had the ability to generate the ranking file. For example for the Rankings, you had to press Y+A at the file selection screen to generate a new file with an upload data string. Same thing with Chao

SA on Dreamcast also has a built-in web browser, which the website loads all images and music from the game disc
