Development of Simese ended a few years ago and is not compatible (and never will be) with more recent PHP releases 5.3, 5.4, 5.5.

This has restricted development of SwissCenter as I need additional (non Simese) development environments to be able to test later PHP releases.

We need to keep SwissCenter simple to install, without having to individually install/configure Apache, MySQL, and PHP. There are various free solutions out there that can be used such as WAMP, XAMPP, etc.

Please join the discussion in the forum to determine the best solution to keep SwissCenter compatible with current server configurations.

Which preconfigured Apache environment should replace Simese?

There is a new site that is the equivalent of tvdb and themoviedb but specifically for music. It aims to provide high quality artist fanart, banners and other details. There is already a substantial amount of fanart available as it is linked to

In addition to providing details for regular artists/albums it also allows users to submit details and artwork for music DVD’s!

If you would like a SwissCenter music video parser for this site then I encourage you to sign up and help the community by submitting details and artwork for your music videos.

As you probably noticed I’ve now moved the site over to WordPress, the forum to phpBB3, and the wiki to MediaWiki. There are still things to do as I’m not 100% happy with the site layout. I know the old site was orange but I’m considering a fresh new modern look.

Feel free to comment on the site and provide feedback/suggestions on anything that could be improved.

I have created a Facebook page for SwissCenter. There’s not much there at the moment so feel free to add photos of your setup, videos, comments, anything SwissCenter related. I’ll probably use it as a blog to post details of what I’m working on and screenshots of new features. Like it to keep track of development.
