So what is the target we are going for here? My buddy thinks he can get any version of redhat setup on emulation system so what environment do we need? I think I saw that information here in the forum somewhere and I am going to search for it but all information about getting the Authentication Tools to run needs to go in this thread.

Looking through my old stuff, there is this quote "This document is based on a meeting held in Jan 1998, regarding Software Authenticity strategies for NUON."

I'm not a Linux guy, but I'll try my best to help with this. I have multiple ways of setting up Virtual machines for running any OS we can find.

Maybe this will help:

At this point, I just need time. My HDD with all of my development stuff on it (yes, it's backed up) is exhibiting some read errors, so I have a new 4TB drive coming in to replace it. It will take a bit of time to get the 1.5TB of data transferred. I'm also on a mostly clean OS install so I have several development tools to get re-installed.

I guess the first step is getting my old dev tools setup and making sure I can compile my old code. I also need to get a working instance of the Nuance emulator.

Keep pinging me so I don't let this slide :)

1998 Linux Distributions is what I am seeing here. Stephen you are the best chance that we have to get this working and if we can get this working we have the chance for new NUON games. I am going to definitely ping you.

This is insane man. Sitting here trying to figure out this damn SDK. You'd think I could remember doing it. I mean, it's only been 20 years since I did this the last time.

Then I run across this:

# Makefile for starfield

# Stephen Anderson
# Started October 1, 2002
# Completed ???


I've now been writing code full time since 2007. Recently at this job (coming up on 10 years) I'm finding I can't remember working on shit from just a few weeks back. Don't know if it's burnout, getting old, dementia setting in, or what.

Well well, look what we have. One small step for me. I am back to where I was in 2001 :)
Code:
gmake
coffpack -o cd_app.cof starfield.cof
coffpack, a COFF file section consolidator.

I've got quite a few boxed versions of linux from back then, and a 32 thread 192GB ram server that's up 24/7 running vmware esxi.... i might be able to set something up if you want to do dev remotly... if you use regular vmware to log in it would also let you attach your local cd burner to the vm as well.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The Texas power got deregulated and they messed it up real good they absolutely did nothing to try and protect the grid from weather
  • The Helper The Helper:
    basically they took away all the safeguards to save money and then the worst happened lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    ???
  • Ghan Ghan:
    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nobody?
  • jonas jonas:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see
