It looks like we do not have the right code and this is not an environment problem. I am unsticking this as it is not the most major about getting new games out at this point.

And what have we here?
That is fantastic except the guy did not post any details or anything else about it. Just a screenshot. At this point, unless there is confirmed confirmation somebody else can replicate what this guy has done it is just HOPE that we do have the right code and it is just an environment problem.

It works. I confirmed by burning the provided ISO to a DVD+R and the game loads and plays in my Toshiba 2300.

At this point it looks like we have confirmation that the Authentication Tools work and we have passed a major hurdle. The guy who did it is signed up on the forum and hopefully he will post more information later. This is so Awesome!

Alrighty folks, I'm still working on putting together a VM with all of this configured, but thought I would release this to the folks with an old RedHat environment already setup. I've uploaded the .gnupg files and the bless files to archive.org here: https://archive.org/details/tempest_202205
Just uncompress into your user's home directory and you should be able to sign away!
The password you can use to unlock the application signing is:

Let me know if you have any questions or issues.

How did you figure out the passphrase? The only info I ever saw in the released tools was Past Is Prologue 6x7yc93

It is kind of funny and ironic that NUON never released the rights like Atari did when they were with Hasbro. I tried to track down who owns the NUON IP and it looks like it is in some Super Corporation that has probably totally forgot about it.

So, a little more than a year after I posted to Yak's forum, I made a follow up to my post, letting them know the issue has been resolved.

I am unsticking this and starting something else.... I don't think this is totally resolved yet because we do not have something we can distribute easily but I think it will be all wrapped up soon. Moving on to the Emulator and SD Card type solution stuff.

So where are we at with this? Can we get a link with instructions on how to do it?

you don't need an old redhat setup, I compiled his upload (https://archive.org/details/tempest_202205) on my current mint linux... it's missing the vmlabs/include folder, which is in the authentication.zip from dragon shadowindustry site... attached.

It compiles and runs fine, but I haven't tested it.

I haven't had a good look at the blessing code, but I'm guessing it shouldn't be too hard to port over to windows.
