NUON Authentication Tools Thread - Emulating older outdated versions of Linux

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.

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!

Sticking this thread again and when we get more information I will make sure this thread is updated.

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!

Let me know if you have any questions or issues.

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 may change this now in User CP
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.

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
