As the official first post, I am curious as to what a Nuon-Dome is. Is it a sports arena? A funny hat? Or perhaps a weird alien technology?

I am unfamiliar with this specific DVD technology - have any info to share with those who will likely be wondering what this is as well?

More info at the site, specifically here: http://www.nuon-dome.com/info.html

Basically NUON is a chip that was built into a few DVD players that gave them game functionality. A few games that were released for the platform include Tempest 3000, Iron Soldier 3 and Merlin Racing.

NUON-Dome is the fansite I've been running for the platform for about 5 years now.

Gotta run, be back later :)

Are those the ones you know of, or the only ones that exist?
Those are the only ones that were ever made with full NUON functionality. Some RCA machines (DRC300N and DRC480N) have the NUON chip inside but only use it for its DVD playback features. There are no controller ports and commercial games won't run on them. They do have a limited VLM inside, and homebrew games will work, however - but you'll have to control them with the I.R. Remote (not fun!).

It's good to have a place for the NUON-Dome forums. I was wondering what was going on over there.

I'm a happy owner of three NUONs, although one doesn't play CDs :( I've been following NUON since '97, it was known as Project X at the time. It really had a lot of potential, which I doubt we'll ever see it's full potential realized. But it did change things, in it's own little way. Being the first DVD game system (yes before the PS2 and it's rumored that PS2 had a little influence from NUON and they were scared of the technologies potential).

    Wow
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you have any Chinese you need help with, let me know.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Monday people hope everyone has a fantastic week!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Happy Monday?! That's a contradiction.
