Yes indeed I do think that, that is why you will never find me storing stuff on a "cloud." IIRC, a few years ago there was a huge flap when Amazon pulled Kindle access to a book people had paid for.
Ah, but the story is not complete without the name of the book. And they say irony is dead...
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

For a change of pace, I've created a list of simple tasks that can help advance SEGS a little bit and hopefully provide other projects with some interesting data.

Other task suggestions very much welcome.

Good idea. I'll take a look later today and see what I can do  :)

I just fired up the SEGS CoX client and was able to create one of my 50's....be warned your emotions will run from ;D to :'( and then back to ;D, but it's real nice to have the ability to do this again.  Thanks for SEGS Nemerle!!!

I wanted to comment on this more. SEGS has really changed it since I last logged in.

It's much cleaner now. You can see everything clearly, you can run around Atlas, listen to the music, see some things in chat.

Nice and simple progress.

The main thing i am worried aobut is DLing this and having it bork up my CoX files somehow. I am going to back those up this weekend [the file is too large to fit on a standard DVD], but until then I am scared to do anything that might hurt that file.

To help you feel safer, it is very easy to install in a separate location, and I actually reused my CoH Beta backup by dragging and dropping it into a fresh install after trying out SEGS.

Still, I heavily encourage backup.

When I tried to download it, I got some crap put on my computer and I had to restore it to an earlier date to get rid of it.  Could someone please PM a screen shot of the download screen and let me know exactly what to click on to get the files?   Thank you so much.

If you don't want to use bittorrent to download the client, then one available here should work.

So, nemerle, I know you're super busy and I am in no way expecting results with any type of hurried speed. That would be dumb as haste makes waste and I'd rather see a good product in a year than a mediocre one in 8 months.

However, the only thing I am curious of is what kind of timeline could we possibly expect? Seeing one instance of Atlas with others there in 2 or 3 months? Having some powers and NPCs in 6 or so? I really don't have a single idea on the type of work it takes to do this type of project, I'm just really curious.

Also, is there anything else we could do to help? Donate? Send you cookies? :D

So, I downloaded the client.  Thank you so much.  I made a toon and logged in but I was transparent (as others as mentioned).  Are we still at that point or did I miss something with the install?  Anyway, it was great to log in again.  That made my night.  Thank you for all your hard work on this.  We all appreciate it.

After a bit of request, Nemerle added a donate button to the website.

http://segs.nemerle.eu/forumz/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8051

It's below the symbol at the top left.

Google chrome will offer to translate the paypal page, since it isn't english. Looks like he's accepting USD though.

Progress depends on my day job workload. I do expect to have people see each other's characters pretty soon. Powers an NPCs.. really can't tell :)

re:Donate page, Sentry44 thanks for the bug report, it's taken care of :)

Sorry to derail but..

I must be blind because I am sure there was a thread on how to get the client up to snuff to use SEGS.

My client went when I uninstalled the ncsoft launcher months ago...

Can anyone help me pls? :o

Thank you, I am feeling nostalgic but I cant believe they took it away.  I was always partial to Galaxy City and with this bringing back the earlier version of Cox I know i will be able to see it again.

Thank you again, you guys have my unending support.
