Hello All!
The hotel is currently VPS hosted, 2 or 3 GB i dont have the specifications in front of me, I'll upgrade as needed.
BrainCMS & Plus EMU.

I have been out of the Retro scene for a few years now, I'm jumping back in to see how things are going and to test the water's.

Today I will be releasing my link to the public in the hope's of some decent feedback.
Not much has changed since the hotel went live simply because im busy at my daytime job.
I would love to get some feedback on possible CMS add-ons, server add-ons, etc.
So tell me, what would you love to see on a retro? I'll do my best to add these changes.


EDIT: Very Minor Changes.

Looks like a very basic hotel, not sure what you’ve edited? I recommend you buy a domain as well. Can’t see this hotel going far, there’s a lot better competition out there.

Thank you for the response everyone, but as i stated above this is a side project for me as i do have a full time job.
I have not done any editing to the CMS/EMU because the the server was just opened.
Yes i could have Xampped it to get everything set up, but i figured with the help of the community I could see what everyone like's and/or dislikes about current hotel's and create an awesome retro.
Again, this is the first post ever about this hotel. I do enjoy reading all of the constructive criticism.
This weekend I will have some time to play around with theme's and making some tweaks to the catalogue, CMS, etc.

what's the point in opening a public hotel knowing that you don't have the time to maintain it?😬

Lol, why are y'all doing this man like this, this is why retros have died because new owners that come into the scene have no guidance and get made fun of because they're struggling, which leads to closing. If the hotel needs work, offer him your services, no need to bring him down with the smart remarks or "criticism" you guys make. Nice hotel, I see a slight bit of potential just needs some work is all, if you need help with dev work, add my Discord Joseph#8099 I wouldn't mind helping you get things settled.

I appreciate that, lmao.
I don't plan on going anywhere. Once I sit down and put my own touches to the CMS then ill focus on client.
I havnt touched a retro since maybe v15 or v16, so there have been alot of changes.

Good Luck, personally I wouldn't have opened until updates are done etc but that's me. Just a few things to point out, sign out buttons don't actually work,
Might want to get rid of the "messages" and just have news 1568321995424.png

Current staff badge says Boon Staff. If you want this changed let me know and send me the actual .png image and I'll edit it for you. 1568322027270.png

Your register page title is also another language which is easy to change anyway.

Goodluck...

As most others are giving you shit feedback and just slating you got it being simple I thought I'd put in a little help for you. Nothing much but better than nothing. I pop on some time and see if you need anything else. Good luck ;p

There are always changes to be made when it comes to a retro hotel.
You should definitely had considered changing up the design of the CMS before opening.

Nonetheless I wish you the best of luck and I hope to see your project here succeed.

Not related to anything, but your messages take me twice as long to get through simply because they are in yellow.

Couldn't of said it any better there, buddy.

Good luck with your hotel, it's shitty to see there's legit 7 hotels left that get at least 10 users a day...

Also if I were you, I'd really crop out your tabs since one includes a name. People are extremely crazy and may try to target you. :confused:
Haha! Thank you, I was so confused at how you knew my name on your last reply lmfao.
I guess i had a blonde moment.

Testing my hand at creating a CMS shop. So far so good, sometime soon i should have it half way decent, VIP & 50M credits are the only two working ATM. I just need to add the sql Inserts(IDK what theyre really called lol) for the coins.
PS: I used the simplevip.php that was just sitting in the folder, translated the text and went from there. *fingers crossed* lol
