Its a very interesting thread Kogasa has started.

As Adz said, we try our hardest to make Yolkfolk.com 'THE' Dizzy Fansite.
We are not biased to material. All welcome as long as they relate in someway to Dizzy, it goes on the site. (All rude, crude, obscene related media gets vetted and put on with a warning for the kiddies).

Yolkfolk.com welcomed DizzyAGE to join the community as the DizzyAGE project was, as still is, a fantastic easy to use tool to create Dizzy games and continues to be supported and updated. :v2_dizzy_yahoo:

We are not aiming to bring down any other Dizzy related sites with our 'Dizzy' scavenging across the internet, and encouage and help where we can.

Regarding Dizzy9's post, I have to contest...
Dizzy9 wrote: Dizzy.pl have official permission from Oliver Twins.Thanks that you can download Original Dizzy Games.
IMO this is a plus, right?

You cannot post official Dizzy games for free download (or paid download for that matter) on your website.
No permission has been granted nor given by either Codemasters or the Olivers relating to this.
If this ever were to be the case, I'd like to believe that Yolkfolk.com would be the first to hear about it and would supply.

On a side note to everyone out there...
Ebay has a whole host of Dizzy games for sale. I would like to point out that while people reselling the official material is okay. There are some who are selling 'Compilations' of Dizzy material. This is ILLEGAL! :dizzy_mad:
I am working with EBAY to get these taken off their site.


Anyway, back to the thread...

While being a part of the Yolkfolk.com operation for a 'while', Its always interesting to see other sites who bring forth a new take and a new community together. Such as Dizzy.pl. Strangely, besides America, Dizzy has exploded (not literally) in other countries and I am always fasinated by this.
I would not like to specifically choose a 'Best Dizzy Site' but rather look at what all the sites bring collectively as a team. :v2_dizzy_wink2:

Can I start a quarrel?
Why you're saying yolkfolk.com is best (or you want make it best) and then you say you want to look on all sites as a team.
Isn't the first one contrary to second?
(Not that I can be wrong and I read this badly.If I misuderstood you then I'm terribly sorry!)

Its okay.. Perhaps I should rephrase what I ment.

Yolkfolk.com is designed to be the 'goto' site for all things Dizzy.
It is also supportive and helps all the other Dizzy related fansites on the internet :)

:dizzy_rolleyes:
BTW:
I used google translation(with not so good results) on denine.cba.pl site.
In download I found...new dizzy game? But for NES?
"Dizzy rainy Day" it's name is?
I never heard about it, it looks highly incomplete.
Are this is a prototype like Dizzy Adventurer for genesis?

I heard about Dizzy's rainy day, I think I came across a few music demo's from Dizzy9's YouTube channel, I think somebody from the Polish Community is working on a fan-made game for the NES.
It's definatly not an official Dizzy game though.

Ahh..that's bad.
Youtube, you say?
Spellbound Dizzy music in 8 bit!

I wonder why no one has ever done 16 bit themes into 8 bit themes.
