Hi, Zyx. Hopefully you'll stick around a bit and fight for the cause.

The Registry entries CoX expects are all manufactured when missing as it starts up.

If you don't start it with -project <something>, look under HKLM\Software\Cryptic\CoH.

If you use -project xyz, look under HKLM\Software\Cryptic\xyz.

If you run the test client, it is wired as if it uses -project CoHTest, hence its key values are under HKLM\Software\Cryptic\CoHTest


The only thing missing you would need to manually fill in, if you really had a server to talk to, is the Auth key value's IP address. This is how SEGS works too, although they are using an I4 client atm.


Btw, is there a little friendly competition going on, I4 vs. I23? :)))

I find that Windows 7 does something different with overlays that prevents you from getting anything but a black screen if you are in full screen mode.  Your mileage may vary.

I use the snipping tool and it works wonderfully.  I actually have  the tool pinned to my task bar.

Late to the party, but, Codewalker I'm completely amazed and very glad  you were able to get this working and so very quickly! Thanks, it means a lot to be able to play around with this.

Wow, the response has been amazing. I knew there was some interest, but underestimated just how much -- in a "We'll probably fill 2-3 Atlas Parks" kind of way.

I've created a dedicated thread for Icon, where I'll keep the top post updated with the latest version and instructions. I'll also be replying to some of the questions here, but over in that thread to keep the information in one place.

First huge Kudos to Codewalker.
Second, I think we're going to need a new domain -- loveletterstoparagon.com -- where we can host all of this post closure costume and demo design ( ' :

Wow! Thank you so much for this. I'm still trying to figure out the -n bit, not sure where and how to edit that, but I just wanted to offer you a free commission, you totally deserve it! Just PM me and I'll get the details.

Thanks again!

Wow, that's incredibly generous of you! I'll have to think about who I'd want to do it for and I'll PM you. :)

Just want to say thanks for thinking of us Mac users. Can't wait to try it out!
And yes I  know Codewalker will make a mac version sometime. I remember my joy when he made sentinel for mac.
Codewalker is the man!

Credit where credit is due, Guy Perfect is the mad genius behind Sentinel and Sentinel+.

kgiesing generously ported it to Mac for us.

All I did for that one was make a few introductions.

I have a question. What if we have a computer that doesn't have CoX? I am currently working on a PC I reformatted. As in clean and factory new. Since CoX is shut down, can CoX even be reinstalled from the NCSoft launcher?

or.. since I have a PC with data/directory of CoX, Beta and Test, is it possible to copy and place that data onto another computer? Wouldn't I need registries or such, not just the folder from program Files?

Just wondering if my PC that's been reformatted is doomed to never be able to have the CoX data on it as it did back when CoX was still online.

You can just copy the whole folder from one computer to another. Put it in a flash drive for safekeeping even. You don't need the registry entries (it creates them when you run it), and COH has never needed to be "installed" to play it. Only the updater cared about that.

Humbly offering the logo (edited) from the iCon billboard that I was lucky enough to get put ingame, as the icon for this program!

http://www.bakkufu.co.uk/icon.ico

Awesome work and I look forward to updates!!!

Nice! I loved seeing that billboard in Steel Canyon.

The contrast seems a little low, may have to make some adjustments to make sure it's readable.

Would it be a lot of trouble to make one with just the 'i' by itself, centered, for the 16x16 version?

Part of that might have been that it sort of went viral. I know as soon as I saw this I posted a link to it  in a CoH group on Facebook, for example, and I saw others do the same in other groups.

Because it rocks! :D

Yeah, that's right! I hope nobody's forgotten all the Mids builds they've exported from the game over the years. Be sure to spread the love around. (-:

So I went in and played with the creator a little but I couldn't do much more than a couple options before I started getting really, really sad. Because no matter how much I play in there, I can't log them in and do the best thing about City: play the game with my friends.

If we ever DO get the game back and I run across that Arachnos Rularuu Drudge guy, I'm promptly crapping my spandex and running away!

Hi, Zyx. Hopefully you'll stick around a bit and fight for the cause.

Greetings Perfidus, and I have been fighting as best I've been able to.

Hopefully I can get the game to work on my other PC. I apologize if I didn't read details yet, is it possible to log into the game beyond the character creator? That's a grand step itself yet, I got a busy error if I tried logging in which I'd imagine it'd be busy.
