I do stuff like this at school, but I make it a bit more complicated.

Usually I power up a Virtual Machine running Windows XP with all my 'tools' pre-setup. Essentially I log into a Linux Server over SSH and establish a SOCKS5 Proxy. I use PuTTy on Windows to do this. After that, I point the browser, or use proxifier, to force the browser to tunnel the request through the SOCKS5 proxy. The data stream in encrypted and you're bypassing the local business network with the establishment of your actual proxy. If ports for SSH are closed, you're screwed.

I do this to surf websites, go on games, and connected to chat software which is normally blocked.

True.

I like the fact that GIMP can be launched from any ol Ubuntu LiveCD. It's very modular in terms of getting your hands on it. I know Photoshop can be haxed, but unless you're on a Windows OS, you're fiddling with getting it to run.

I'm pretty sure the original intent was for the maps. That's why Nexus Network was being referenced for so long, as it held the majority of the statistical information.

I'm terrible at photoshop and im crummy in graphics all together, but I could replicate that picture using paint biggrin.gif

On a side note, does anyone know how well The Gimp compares to Photoshop?

I think it is a map to portray the immanent destruction of Kugnae. The fail comes in by people accessing it BEFORE it actually happens.

Lol, wooot for anti-climactic.

When in doubt, use VirtualBox for all of your Open Source virtualization needs. biggrin.gif

Just to throw it out there, it seems to run Windows XP faster than using windows directly installed. I say this based on a Intel Q6600 Quad-core with 3 GB of Ram. Also running Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (32bit). So if something just HAS to work (QuickBooks Pro 2008, in this example), VirtualBox will help you out big time.

... It can also run Nexus if you need it to, but WINE seems to run it just fine.

There is a room that says "TBA Soon", maybe it'll be transformed into the battle ground and the armors will transform into battle mode just like you wished....

I have an E1505 and it runs really well. Then again, I optimize all of my systems...

Anyway, I do have a question and if it's mentioned in another thread I apologize.

I'm in Windows Vista Business 32Bit and I use D3DWindower to play Nexus. It doesn't turn off Aero like the Nexus built-in full screener does, so it's my friend.

However, whenever I move the mouse a second mouse seems to clone behind it and it ruins some of the pixels on Nexus, but they redraw. I guess what I'm trying to say is under certain conditions, Nexus doesn't always look 100% cleanly drawn on my screen. I don't think it's my computer, I think it's probably D3DWindower, but is there a setting to fix this? Does anyone else have this problem?

TY biggrin.gif

Lucky Chance already sounds similar to the Rogue Ee San Spell for Invoke...

Not against it's other uses, but sort of redundant in some factors.

I use to have a Learned the Ways mark from Consie. I do miss that mark.

I think my current character has a Blood Brother mark from her also, but my memory is shot and I'm too unregistered to confirm.

What I dislike most about RiaDora as elder is that she is and has always been too content with staying the same. As the game evolves, so should the paths. That's NEVER happened in the Rangers for as long as RiaDora has been elder. However, that goes hand in hand on why she keeps being put back by the gamemasters. She's STABLE; they know what they're going to get.

I can name plenty of Barbarians who don't follow those stereotypes, but none of them play anymore smile.gif. Myself included.

On topic:

I don't necessarily agree with a Barbarian Elder having jobs outside of the path. I think they should be dedicated to just their path. On that note, I don't see how that loses merit. Truth is, if someone was meant to be Tutor instead of Gobiin, they would have been given the position smile.gif!

Oh, and unless you can outperform Gobiin in being a Barbarian Elder and Warrior Tutor (and be capable of proving it), shut up smile.gif!

Now, I'm done.

^ PS. Make sure you wrap those codes within <?php ?> tags as that is PHP code.

How does the way that involves Wine work?

I didn't know Wine worked on Mac, but I know it's a valid solution for Linux. Basically Wine installs components into the operating system to give it Windows capabilities.

After installing Wine, using it is a matter of running the installer .exe, in which Wine will take control and guide in installation. It will also run the program when the exe is invoked...

Of course, that's just average use. I don't know much about using it when it's not straight forward, like fixes and such.

Just to enforce the common use of Virtual Machines, here's how it works.

Virtual Machines exist as two parts. The Host and the Guest. Under the circumstances in this example, the Host would be the Mac operating system and the guest would be Windows (XP, most likely). You install your virtual machine program which is what you will use to manage and run the actual virtual machine. You would then create a virtual hard drive. What this means is you're creating a file that pretends to be a physical hard drive. For what you plan to do, 10 gigs should be fine. Last, you would outline your settings.

When you setup the virtual machine, you should keep i mind that nothing belongs to the guest operating system, it's shared. Your processor will automatically be shared, as will audio and video. Even your network can be shared. What you will have to set is the amount of memory you want to allocate to your guest operating system. To put this part into perspective, here's the break down.

Your mac has 1024 MB of RAM. When started, your computer typically uses about 256 MB of your RAM. You can now use what remains and allocate that to your guest. You wouldn't want to allocate too much as you could crash your host, but you don't want to allocate too little as you will see performance change on your guest operating system. In your scenario, 256 MB would be the safest, but 512 MB would be feasible. If you have over 1 gig of RAM, 512 is a good minimum. Your computer also shares the hard drive, which means that while you play Nexus, you may see performance deficiency on your mac. Hard drives are the number one bottleneck for a virtual machine. If you have a secondary hard drive or a removable drive, using it for your virtual hard drive would not be a bad idea.

Now, you will also need installation media for Windows XP. This can be a physical CD or an ISO image. Image files can be mounted directly into VirtualBox. The key here is to mount the installation media and install Windows. Since the virtulization layer is already established, you CANNOT accidentally format your mac. The installer can only find what is available on the virtual hard drive as it cannot see your entire drive.

Once you install Windows, you can then install Nexus and you're off. If you don't have an installer for Windows, you may want to hold off doing any steps until you get one.

Hope this helps. Enjoy.
