Ok so i downloaded both versions of rom2.4 from the gammon website and it tells me that i have to transfer the rom.exe file over to the other one that way i can use rom2.4 with olc. The thing is i cant find the rom.exe file. maybe im doing something wrong or havent done something. Its been awhile since ive messed with this but i have messed with it before. If there is anything anybody could tell me that i need to do which im sure there is please help me. im in a situation were i have nothing to do and so i figured i would try and learn some coding while im doing what im doing.. if you have any insite on anything please feel free to add that in as well. i got the rom2.4 mud up and running its just not the one with olc.. This would be verry helpfull so please help me..

It should be in the src directory. If, did you compile yet?

Or are you trying to get the pre-compiled version?

Then it sounds like you should get a MUD host. There's a number of paid and free ones out there.

But you should learn Linux commands first.

The size of my Cygwin download folder is only 147 Mb. That's only 14% of 1 Gb. At 10 Gb for 30 days you can afford to download 341 Mb per day, so that isn't too bad. Especially as it is a once-off.

You downloaded 300 Mb and then deleted it? Why?

According to the Cygwin web site:

Quote:

What versions of Windows are supported?


Cygwin can be expected to run on all modern 32 bit versions of Windows, except Windows CE and Windows 95/98/Me. This includes, as of the time of writing this, Windows NT4 SP4 or later, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, as well as the WOW64 32 bit environment on released 64 bit versions of Windows (XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/2008 R2).


Slow down a bit. Rather than just deleting something large you have downloaded, maybe ask for help first?

Well, don't feel too bad about it, I couldn't even download it, (ref = http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=10970&page=999 ).
And, no matter what information you get from here about muds you are getting some of the best. There are only a few of these people left that know about them, on this site, and a couple others.
Without these games being presented to anyone in their raw form as they are, I doubt anyone would have any interest in them. Which is a shame. I missed the bbs era, but I sure appreciate being able to access and explore that era which was the precurser to massively online player games that we now enjoy to play (on some) in 3D.

My name's not Nick, but the problem is that every quote link does the same thing: it sends you to the posting page with the quoted post in [quote] tags. There's nothing special about the quote links on the posting page, they do the exact same thing.

Just copy what you want to quote, paste it, and put [quote] ... [/quote] around it.

I mentioned in the other thread that seems to have kicked off on this subject, the handful of extra things I added to get it to work.

Lol, I was refering to Nick Gammon.

I just noticed that my visual c is no longer on my computer after I installed visual c++ 2008 express and have no way to recompile the smaug I have been working on. I had studio express 2005 that I was using to compile in c. Apparently it erased everything, including my c library that I had stored under one of it's directories.

I've been searching my external drives for a backup of that version.

{External Hard Drive Note: If you have an external notebook, or such, and it fails, take it out of the case and put it into a docking bay, and you will find that it still works. If it fails there, then it really did die.}

You mud, I mud, we all mud together.
