DOSee pronounced dos/see, is our emulator used to run MS-DOS based software in your web browser.

MS-DOS (Microsoft DOS) was the primary operating system used by PCs during the 1980s to the early 1990s and is the precursor to Microsoft Windows.


DOSee is a slimmed down, partly modified port of The Emularity.

The Emularity is a multi-platform JavaScript emulator that supports the running of software for legacy computer platforms in a web browser. It is the same platform that's running emulation on the Internet Archive.

EM-DOSBox is a high-performance JavaScript port of DOSBox that is applied by The Emularity for its emulation of the MS-DOS platform.

DOSee uses BrowserFS ZipFS and ZipFS Extras to simulate zip file archives as hard disks within EM-DOSBox.

DOSBox is the most popular MS-DOS emulator in use today and is frequently used by commercial game publishers to run games from their back-catalogues on modern computers.


DOSee, built on The Emularity, EM-DOSBox and DOSBox. Capture screenshot and save function built on canvas-toBlob.js.

 ║      Welcome to Reality Check Network, your #1 Warez E-mag!  And so we'd   ║
 ║  like to stay!  Currently, we have just finished wiping out the            ║
 ║  competition, apparently it just couldn't compete with us.  However, this  ║
 ║  extra burst of confidence seems to be our worst enemy thus far.  We       ║
 ║  noticed this after the release of Issue #21.  The editors, and some of    ║
 ║  the readers, noticed that the ways of RCN needed to be fixed and          ║
 ║  upgraded.  In retrospect to earlier issues, RCN was still getting         ║
 ║  bigger, but size isn't everything when it comes to an e-mag.  It was      ║
 ║  becoming obvious that we were sacrificing quality for a bigger magazine.  ║
 ║  Furthermore, the ethics of RCN also needed ramification, as inspired by   ║
 ║  Rio & Ken's letter, and those of several other people.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In trying to keep RCN's position as the #1 warez e-mag, the editors   ║
 ║  have agreed upon several modifications that we think will please you,     ║
 ║  the readers, today and in the future.  We believe that the set of pacts   ║
 ║  we have agreed to will create a more harmonious relationship between RCN  ║
 ║  and its readers, and make reading RCN a more enjoyable embarkment.  A     ║
 ║  major difference that you will notice between this issue of RCN and       ║
 ║  previous issues is that we no longer strive for 8 articles, and 8         ║
 ║  interviews.  We all know that reading repeated interviews was getting     ║
 ║  boring, and we all know that articles about mere fluff were never         ║
 ║  interesting.  Obviously a person that doesn't read anything because he    ║
 ║  hates to do so will never enjoy RCN, but people that do enjoy reading     ║
 ║  were starting to get frustrated with the layout of the above sections.    ║
 ║  So now, we will have a fluctuating number of articles and interviews,     ║
 ║  with much greater scrutiny based on quality.  RCN's old philosophy was    ║
 ║  based on giving everybody a voice, but if a person is educated enough to  ║
 ║  form an opinion on any given topic, he should be educated enough to       ║
 ║  write a well structured article to support his case.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You will also find a new ADDITION to RCN in this issue.  I am         ║
 ║  speaking of the "Cover Story" menu!  In previous issues, we have          ║
 ║  included the cover story within either the articles or interviews menu.   ║
 ║  Now, we will be spending a much greater amount of time on researching     ║
 ║  and studying the week's cover story.  A cover story deserves more than    ║
 ║  just an article or an interview, it deserves a complete assessment and    ║
 ║  review, something that RCN will now be able to offer.  This week's cover  ║
 ║  story is about the United Cracking Force, and you will find that the      ║
 ║  menu contains over 3 times as much information as previous issues of RCN  ║
 ║  did.                                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another issue that readers were beginning to complain about in past   ║
 ║  issues is that of RCN putting people down, and constantly "dissing" on    ║
 ║  people in the scene.  It was becoming like a "soap opera," as some would  ║
 ║  phrase it.  Though I find that as somewhat humorous, I don't find it the  ║
 ║  least bit necessary, and this attitude will be done away with now and in  ║
 ║  the future.  If a person messes up and does something that's not very     ║
 ║  respectable in the scene, we will just stop reporting things that may     ║
 ║  concern that person.  The lack of publicity will be punishment enough.    ║
 ║  If a group messes up, it will only be covered if we feel that publicity   ║
 ║  and information about the group could raise its potential to survive.     ║
 ║  If a problem is more serious than that, it will not be RCN's position to  ║
 ║  correct it, but rather the scene's as a whole.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now for meeting logs.  We were the first to use them, and they have   ║
 ║  done a most amazing job of showing us who people REALLY are behind        ║
 ║  "closed doors."  But enough of them now.  I will use GODS as an example   ║
 ║  because it is a group that has since split up and probably won't mind a   ║
 ║  bit of publication about them.  RCN obtained the first meeting log of     ║
 ║  GODS when it was initially grouping.  This is something I would say is    ║
 ║  NOT our position to publish.  It solely contained information about the   ║
 ║  organization of the group, something that they are quite entitled to do.  ║
 ║  However, the latter meeting log about GODS would be something I think we  ║
 ║  should have the right to publish, for one important reason.  The latter   ║
 ║  log effected people beyond just GODS members.  It contained information   ║
 ║  that could hinder the rest of the scene, and that's not right.  So that   ║
 ║  was something that people did deserve to see.  From now on, no meeting    ║
 ║  logs will be published, even if they are just two people cussing each     ║
 ║  other out, if they don't contain data that could severely hinder the      ║
 ║  scene and outside members.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      For example, and note that this is purely hypothetical, I have utter  ║
 ║  respect for the groups I am about to name.  Let's say Hybrid had a        ║
 ║  meeting about how they were really pissed off about the Dynamix           ║
 ║  incident.  That would NOT be something that RCN could publish.  Hybrid    ║
 ║  is quite entitled to talk amongst themselves.  However, if Hybrid were    ║
 ║  talking about how Razor is really pissing them off and how they're about  ║
 ║  to start a masterful plan to grab all the Razor suppliers, and let's say  ║
 ║  that Razor didn't know about this, now THAT would be something RCN        ║
 ║  should publish.  The distinction?  Hybrid would be crossing over the      ║
 ║  "Hybrid" boundary and stepping over the feet of others.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I would like to make an important clarification and apology to        ║
 ║  several people/groups that deserved it a long time ago.  I would like to  ║
 ║  apologize to the readers of RCN that have been in disagreement with us    ║
 ║  in past times.  However, I use this as an example to you that we DO read  ║
 ║  your mail and ARE interested in what you have to say.  Rio & Ken sent us  ║
 ║  clear mail that explained his position with examples, and he was right,   ║
 ║  and we were wrong, and now we're fixing our mistakes.  You can't expect   ║
 ║  us to change, however, if you never send us any comments.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Lastly, I would like to make an apology to Prestige and The Renegade  ║
 ║  Chemist together.  Though the news is rather old, it is news that makes   ║
 ║  a difference today, and makes a difference in the reputation of TRC, and  ║
 ║  it deserves to be said.  A while back, RCN published information          ║
 ║  regarding TRC and Dynamix, and his departure from Dynamix into Prestige.  ║
 ║  However, we never really gave TRC a chance to explain his side of the     ║
 ║  story by himself.  Since then, Prestige has placed a boycott on RCN,      ║
 ║  viewable on their WWW page, which stated that they would not be granting  ║
 ║  RCN any interviews.  Since their boycott, RCN DID get two interviews      ║
 ║  with Prestige leaders, but despite that, we still want to clear our       ║
 ║  grounds with Prestige as a whole.  So, I apologize to TRC for not giving  ║
 ║  him the opportunity to fully express himself in the matters at hand, he   ║
 ║  is a great help to the scene, he is an agressive person, but that's not   ║
 ║  a negative thing in the scene.  Furthermore, I would like to extend that  ║
 ║  apology to Prestige all together, and as a result, I have published       ║
 ║  TRC's side of the matter in the articles menu.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Again, you can always find Reality Check Network available on the     ║
 ║  WWW at HTTP://WWW.RCN.ORG/INDEX.HTML, as well as find some of our         ║
 ║  previous competition (though, unfortunately, none exists at the moment)   ║
 ║  and perhaps compare and contrast.  And as a final note, a little word     ║
 ║  about etiquette, purposefully placed at the END of the introduction.  I   ║
 ║  don't mind if you don't want to read an entire article or interview, and  ║
 ║  decide you've had enough in the middle, but if you're going to contact    ║
 ║  us with a complaint, make sure you HAVE read the entire text before       ║
 ║  doing so.  It doesn't look too impressive when you complain about         ║
 ║  something and our response to your complaint was in the body of the text  ║
 ║  all the while, but you were too lazy to find it.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As always, thanks for reading RCN, and don't hesitate to contact us!  ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      Basically, everyone knows that RCN rules so I'm not going to even     ║
 ║  say it.  Alright, fine then, OK!, I will say it, RCN RULES! (Be a bitch   ║
 ║  about it why don't you.)  Anyway, this letter is to comment on the way I  ║
 ║  feel about THE scene, and to react to what people say about it.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Firstly, I want to talk about the couriers of the world.  Quite a     ║
 ║  few years ago, when 14.4 modems were top of the line, BBS traders were    ║
 ║  judged on the quality of warez that they spread, not HOW MUCH they        ║
 ║  spread.  Now, with the introduction of the Internet SCENE a great         ║
 ║  courier is someone that can move over a gig, or so, a week between a few  ║
 ║  places.  That's all honky dory, but if it's something to help you learn   ║
 ║  your A-B-C's, or something that doesn't install correctly, I honestly     ║
 ║  DOUBT that it is useful to anyone in 'the scene.'                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A great courier is someone who has tested the warez which they are    ║
 ║  spreading, know that they are quality, and starts the batch.  I know for  ║
 ║  Internet couriers this is extremely hard since they hardly ever download  ║
 ║  the program themselves, but for BBS traders it only takes a quick 10      ║
 ║  minutes to see if it works before they pass it along.  Anyone, namely 10  ║
 ║  year old little pricks, can go to bed and leave their computers on,       ║
 ║  uploading all night... THAT takes no talent, and deserves NO respect.     ║
 ║  You people might not realize this, but groups NEED their couriers.  They  ║
 ║  need quality people to spread their lovely working game or util.  Now     ║
 ║  think about it this way.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Wouldn't a group LOVE to hire someone that they knew tested shit      ║
 ║  before they spread it.  This would ENSURE the group not getting           ║
 ║  embarassed if they happen to fuck up a release.  Also, if something       ║
 ║  doesn't work people complaining, saying that the groups 'SUCKS', and      ║
 ║  give them all the blame.  Well, my friends, that's BULLSHIT!  The people  ║
 ║  who spread bad shit are as much at fault as the ones who packaged it.     ║
 ║  The attitude of most traders right now is....... "Hmm... I should really  ║
 ║  see if this works before I spend 14 hours uploading it... but what the    ║
 ║  hell!  I wanna download that cool program so fuck it."  To all of you     ║
 ║  who think/do that... I hope that the program you download was uploaded    ║
 ║  by a prick like you.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Secondly, although I can bullshit about the scene and its problems    ║
 ║  for hours upon hours I would just like to touch on one more major issue.  ║
 ║  In one of the previous magazines (I forgot which one) someone commented   ║
 ║  on the BBS scene deteriorating while the Internet scene thrives.  In      ║
 ║  most respects that's true.  BUT... look at it this way, a long time ago   ║
 ║  when someone wanted respect in 'the scene' they either were a GREAT       ║
 ║  coder, courier or sysop of a popular board.  So every little dumbfuck     ║
 ║  would pick the one they thought was the best.  In this case I'll use the  ║
 ║  BBS.  They would beg their parents for a phone line, put up a BBS, and    ║
 ║  hope it would thrive.  Sucking up to the right people, while getting      ║
 ║  help in the process, would sometimes make it prosper, in turn making      ║
 ║  them popular.  Now, ok, I know I'm exagerating, but it gets better.       ║
 ║  With the Internet here, groups are practically BEGGING for Internet       ║
 ║  couriers, so these little losers put down their boards and go to a life   ║
 ║  of Internet trading, usually changing their already stupid handle to      ║
 ║  something stupidier in the process.  This, in my view, can only make the  ║
 ║  BBS scene STRONGER.  Sure it'll mean there are fewer BBSes around,        ║
 ║  but...it also is a method of 'trimming the fat'.. getting rid of the      ║
 ║  people who are too weak or disloyal to stay in, and making the remaining  ║
 ║  BBSers/BBSes the 'TRUE ELiTE!'.  Phew, glad I got that off my chest.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Last, I know I'm blabbering on, but hey.. you can always hit ESC.     ║
 ║  Anyway, in another issue someone said that RCN magazine is making it      ║
 ║  unsafe for the scene.  That is just stupid and moronic.  RCN is the       ║
 ║  collection of articles of people who are on IRC and bullshit like that.   ║
 ║  This means that basically RCN is a colorful snapspot of a night on IRC.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      You know, I was sitting at home the other night, reading RCN #19,     ║
 ║  when something hit me.  "Chris Carter?!? Getting busted?!?!  Whoa, this   ║
 ║  is real.  This is reality."  BLAM!  The reality train struck me right in  ║
 ║  between the eyez.  But, here in mah sleepy town in Kentucky, you don't    ║
 ║  hear of computer crime.  We had a bank hacked, but I seriously doubt      ║
 ║  that that was local, I assumed it was some long distance phreaker, war    ║
 ║  dailing through the 82 prefix.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      But, then I read on.  The article said he was busted also.  Hmmm...   ║
 ║  sounds like he wasn't so leet after all.  But, the article also said he   ║
 ║  WAS in the scene pretty big when he went down.  Hmmm... sounds like he    ║
 ║  got sloppy.  I mean, we all know the risk, we assume it every time we     ║
 ║  type "mget *.*".  If you are under 18, you can mess your life up          ║
 ║  something awful, and if you are older, the same can happen.  But we all   ║
 ║  are risk takers.  We ARE the cyber pirates that all of the magazines      ║
 ║  talk about.  We are all famous or infamous, depends on how you look at    ║
 ║  it.                                                                       ║

 ║      Back to my small town.  I was mowing, and thinking, you know, I have  ║
 ║  some underage friends, whose parents are COPS and they are in big on      ║
 ║  warez.  Hmmm... crooked cops?  Never... always.  In a small town,         ║
 ║  corruption (big enough for NYC)?  I mean, my town was once voted the      ║
 ║  easiest place to get away with a crime.  We have the HIGHEST unsolved     ║
 ║  crime rate for a town our size.  So, shall I dare say I am at LESS of a   ║
 ║  risk than the rest of my warez buds in Core?  I don't know.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Actually, I don't see any "World's Laws", which would have to be      ║
 ║  made to police CyberSpace since you check the U.S. laws at the door, or   ║
 ║  your respective countries, that say I can't do this or that.  I mean, I   ║
 ║  may move stuff from Sweden to Japan, all from an account in Australia.    ║
 ║  I was never in the U.S. this whole time, but I am tried if caught by US   ║
 ║  computer laws.  Is this fair?  Well, to them "Big Blue" it is.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anything that steals $45 dollars from someone that put a bunch of     ║
 ║  1's and 0's in a pattern that made this alien splatter blood all over my  ║
 ║  screen when I shot him with a M 16.  I mean, there is a chance <1 in 1    ║
 ║  000 000 000> that I could randomly write binary that would replicate      ║
 ║  this last scene from a well known 3D game.  I mean, who is the thief      ║
 ║  here?  Us or them?  They charge $50 for a piece of plastic and some       ║
 ║  magnetic tape, and I AM THE CRIMINAL for getting it for free?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Hi, my name is Eraser.  Most of you people don't know me, probably    ║
 ║  because I changed my nick and I am not in any groups anymore.  I am       ║
 ║  writing an article about what odogg^2 wrote about.  IRC ops and their     ║
 ║  power.  Personally, I have talked to a couple IRC ops that were kewl,     ║
 ║  but some are just assholes, because they can play god on IRC.  Prae,      ║
 ║  kern.com's owner has been an IRC op for 15 years.  Don't ya think he      ║
 ║  should find something else to do besides playing on IRC for 15 years?     ║
 ║  Anyways, the other day I loaded LL (link looker), which is the best tool  ║
 ║  op.  I had it loaded on kern.com, then it quit and I got klined.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      5 minutes later, I was not klined anymore for some reason so I asked  ║
 ║  Prae.  His response? "Link lookers are lame."  Well, I dont give a fuck   ║
 ║  if they're lame!  It's all I got, you stupid faggot.  I don't invest my   ║
 ║  life savings into fucking kern.com so I can play IRC ops with the other   ║
 ║  big boys.  Like odogg^2 wrote, an IRC op has use for /kill, and he has    ║
 ║  use for his 9 clones.  I have use for my clones and LL.  To this day,     ║
 ║  Prae is still being a prick.  15 years of o-lines makes you a dipshit.    ║

 ║  using LL, yes, because LL is against my policy.  There are other servers  ║
 ║  which don't patrol for link lookers that I am sure he may happily use if  ║
 ║  he insists on having his link looker.  I don't particularly care, but     ║
 ║  I'm not changing my policiess for him or anybody.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Secondly, I haven't been on IRC for 15 years, since there hasn't      ║
 ║  BEEN IRC for 15 years.  I do not 'own' kern.com, nor have I poured a      ║
 ║  dime into it; they pay *me* to do what I do.  I am sorry if the user in   ║
 ║  question doesn't agree with my policies here, but that's just the way it  ║
 ║  is, I suppose.  I don't think posting a bunch of blatantly false          ║
 ║  information is liable to make him look any more 'right.'  I wonder if he  ║
 ║  has any knowledge whatsoever about the people's whose servers and         ║
 ║  services he so happily abuses.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      You need to rethink your position in IRC.  A football player can      ║
 ║  boast that his job is a game (he can also boast that he's making a bit    ║
 ║  more than you), but you don't have the privilege of doing so.  At least   ║
 ║  you shouldn't.  At one point in your life you're going to have to admit   ║
 ║  to yourself that you can't play on IRC for the rest of your life and      ║
 ║  become a success.  I honestly don't know what leads to your immature      ║
 ║  actions on IRC, perhaps it is an ego problem, perhaps you haven't enough  ║
 ║  outside resources to please you, it's not my place to judge, but in all   ║
 ║  seriousness, you need a psychiatrist to help you sort through the         ║
 ║  complications of your life.                                               ║

 ║      You need to take yourself more seriously and subsequently take more   ║
 ║  responsibility for your actions, one cannot exist without the other, yet  ║
 ║  the two coexist wonderfully.  In the mean time, until you find your       ║
 ║  catcher in the rye, you cannot take the rest of your pains out on people  ║
 ║  on IRC.  I'm sure you will tell me that you're not an ALL bad IRC op and  ║
 ║  that you have helped a lot of people on IRC, but one bad apple ruins the  ║
 ║  rest.  I don't doubt that there is a great human being behind that        ║
 ║  facade, but you need to realize that for yourself.  Until this            ║
 ║  realization has been made, control yourself, and remember that words are  ║
 ║  just words, but /kills are even smaller than that.                        ║

 ║      This is Eraser, and I'm writing a semi-rebuttal on IRC ops, because   ║
 ║  of what I had written last week got so much chaos started.  I decided,    ║
 ║  why not write another letter?  Anyways, this week's letter on IRC ops is  ║
 ║  about why they piss me off, and the other shit about them.  First off,    ║
 ║  I'm pissed that they all have their own domains :                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      irc.stealth.net oper : residue@flakey.donut.residue.com               ║
 ║      irc.mo.net oper : mouse@whiskers.com                                  ║
 ║      irc.epix.net oper : dianora@diana.incacc.net                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another thing I don't like, is the trouble trying to find an ALIVE    ║
 ║  oper in times of trouble.  Now, they made channel #Twilight_Zone +i       ║
 ║  which pisses me off.  They are hiding from us now, they don't want to     ║
 ║  answer our questions or problems 90% of the time.  The best channel now   ║
 ║  is #Unix, but you say the words "I need," "help" or something like that,  ║
 ║  it's an auto-kick-ban.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      EFNet is also getting too tight on bots.  No multiple connections,    ║
 ║  bots, anything anymore.  It is hard trying to keep a damn channel safe,   ║
 ║  even if you have 1 bot, it will get klined or flooded, and if you have    ║
 ║  20, those get klined still.  Anyways, someday we should all rebel, and    ║
 ║  make the big guys who run EFNet actually notice what is going on.  :)     ║

 ║      As an avid Internet courier myself, I know how succesful it can be.   ║
 ║  However, others disagree.  IRC couriering is mostly couriering through    ║
 ║  DCC.  People set up offer bots, place them in channels like #Exceed,      ║
 ║  #M8leech and #Phatfiles, have them display lists of stuff their           ║
 ║  offering, and people leech stuff.  This is one of the most efficient      ║
 ║  ways of couriering and is also the easiest to measure success in.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In BBS and FTP couriering, you can usually only see how much someone  ║
 ║  uploaded, you can't always see which files are the most popular, or how   ║
 ║  many people leeched them.  With IRC couriering, your bot can tell you     ║
 ║  exactly how many megs have been leeched and how many times people have    ║
 ║  downloaded each file.  This allows IRC couriers to see what files are     ║
 ║  the most popular and which to offer again.  With FTP and BBS couriering,  ║
 ║  you could upload a gig of shit and you'd still get credit for uploading   ║
 ║  it, even if no one downloaded it.  Another plus is the publicity the      ║
 ║  group gets.  It's fairly simple to add a file at the end of an offer      ║
 ║  list containing an app or an nfo, and groups gain lots of notariety that  ║
 ║  way.                                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The downsides to it are the complexity of getting things together.    ║
 ║  First, you have to find a shell with IRC, upload the stuff you want to    ║
 ║  offer, then get an XDCC offer script (fphoenix.irc is known as the best   ║
 ║  all-around and is the most popular), and then configure the offer list.   ║
 ║  Also, people who run them will sometimes get messages from people who     ║
 ║  are having problems.  I once had someone who said, "I can't download      ║
 ║  this file because it keeps stopping and saying I'm not fast enough, but   ║
 ║  I have a 14.4 modem!"  I politely explained the system of minimum speeds  ║
 ║  (which I never set porpously more than 1K/s, unlike the fATE couriers     ║
 ║  who have 3K/s as the minimum, jack asses), and said that he'd probably    ║
 ║  need atleast a 28.8 modem.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      He continued to bug me, and finally I sent him the file manually,     ║
 ║  just to get him to shut up.  This is REALLY annoying after a while, but   ║
 ║  we IRC couriers have to put up with it.  In addition, groups with IRC     ║
 ║  channels will often get dumbasses in their rooms saying, "How come this   ║
 ║  thing doesn't work on my 386?"  OK, maybe that's a little extreme, but    ║
 ║  you get the picture.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Personally I feel that the good outweighs the bad and that IRC        ║
 ║  couriering has a bright future.  Just take a look at all the offer        ║
 ║  channels springing up and becoming popular.  #Phatfiles was only          ║
 ║  recently founded, and it's already very popular and many IRC couriering   ║
 ║  groups support it.  I feel that it would be extremely peneficial to       ║
 ║  couriering groups such as Everlast and RiSC to add IRC divisions to       ║
 ║  their groups.  But if that doesn't happen, groups like PTA will continue  ║
 ║  to dominate the IRC couriering arena.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I write this letter with a great madness to what can only be termed   ║
 ║  lamerz.  I know alot of you hate this term, but in this case it is        ║
 ║  correct.  I am the author of a ircII client called BitchX, which          ║
 ║  although not the first client to support ansi, is one of the very few     ║
 ║  that distributes source code for their client.  Out of all the clients    ║
 ║  for Unix systems available on the net at this time, CtoolZ by Sheik,      ║
 ║  ScrollZ by Flier, EPIC 3.001 from Hop, Hop and I are the only ones who    ║
 ║  offer complete source to thier clients.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Then there's Hellshock, who purportedly writes hADES.  hADES is a     ║
 ║  rip of BitchX in all regards.  Bugs and all.  Hellshock has the gall to   ║
 ║  not even acknowledge the people whom he's ripping ALL his source from.    ║
 ║  So as I approach yet another BitchX release I'm faced with a decision.    ║
 ║  Do I or do I not release source for BitchX?  I've spent a lot of time     ║
 ║  and effort with BitchX since it's inception and a lot of people have      ║
 ║  either given ideas or source to this project, I'd like to thank each and  ║
 ║  every on of them for their patience and testing of a client of unknown    ║
 ║  quality, for their code which I've sometimes used, sometimes ignored and  ║
 ║  other times modified greatly.                                             ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      A dupe.  The most hated thing in a release group with the only        ║
 ║  exception possibly being a non-working release.  In the past, dupes have  ║
 ║  been taken care of in medieval style fashion by getting axed.  After a    ║
 ║  succession of dupes, a group's entire label might get nuked {ie.          ║
 ║  BLD*.zip for a group with the acronym BLD}.  This possibly group          ║
 ║  threatening reputation is not looked upon well by groups, and is feared   ║
 ║  to the point of insanity.  So, my question is, what should be done about  ║
 ║  dupes?  Let's take a look at my plan if you will.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Many dupes are done due to the limit of BBS couriering.  For          ║
 ║  instance, a local group releases a game (way over the 50 disk limit) in   ║
 ║  Australia.  This release does not travel well outside Australia, only     ║
 ║  gets to Russia, and stops there.  Another group, later that month,        ║
 ║  releases the same game after dupe checking extensively throughout its     ║
 ║  sites, RCN listings, and BBSes, and finds that the game was not           ║
 ║  released.  After a few days, this release (under the 50 disk limit) is    ║
 ║  spread all the way across the world and eventually reaches the point of   ║
 ║  where the local group released it.  During this process of the release    ║
 ║  crossing over to the other territory, the dupe is noticed, and            ║
 ║  eventually word gets around that the group that released it under the     ║
 ║  limit duped the release.  This scenario has happened many a time, and is  ║
 ║  just not possible to outwit 100% of the time.  In my opinion, a group     ║
 ║  should not be denounced for a dupe that was not effectively spread by     ║
 ║  the original group.  Also, a group should not be denounced for duping a   ║
 ║  release that was not released under the 50 disk limit.  If I'm a          ║
 ║  supplier for a worldwide group, and I am based in the United States, how  ║
 ║  am I supposed to find out about some release that was released in         ║
 ║  Australia by a no-name group?                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Here is my proposition, any game that goes over the 50 disk limit     ║
 ║  (actual game) should not be counted as an actual release.  Also, if a     ║
 ║  group releases addons to that game, and they go over 100 disks, then the  ║
 ║  addons should not be counted.  If a release group re-releases these       ║
 ║  games/addons under the limit, then they are in no violation of the        ║
 ║  rules.  In order to limit the number of dupes on viable games, all games  ║
 ║  must hit a certain Internet Site, and BBS that is widely known in the     ║
 ║  scene to everyone.  If it is not uploaded there by the time the other     ║
 ║  group releases the game, then it is not considered a viable release, and  ║
 ║  the other group may release it.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      First, Rebel Chicken is right in many things.  We fucked up a few     ║
 ║  times, Tklp is very dedicated and wanted to group to become #1, etc.      ║
 ║  There Rebel was right.  And more, all that the Quake shit was ...shit.    ║
 ║  It was *NOT* that shareware beta 3 floating around, but yes, it was not   ║
 ║  a final either.  Quake was our big mistake.  We just got carried away.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Second, Rebel Chicken is a fucking faggot.  He proposes to ban all    ║
 ║  RLX*.* files (Reflux is a new group, made from ROR's old-timers and a     ║
 ║  few great newcomers).  I just cannot believe it.  How easy is it for him  ║
 ║  to say such shit?  All major groups agreed to give us a second chance,    ║
 ║  and under Reflux name we are able to try again, to act fair and bring     ║
 ║  you 100% releases.  The whole year of our work for ROR was wasted,        ║
 ║  because we had to start a new group (although do *NOT* make a mistake     ║
 ║  thinking RLX is just a new ROR.  No, there are quite a few cool new       ║
 ║  members, and some old were kicked out), but we decided to start again,    ║
 ║  with clean account.  And then we hear Mr. Rebel-Fucking-Chicken, who      ║
 ║  tries to steer the warez free market.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Some people might be surprised that I do not attack the groups which  ║
 ║  started that infamous ban of ROR.  You all know we could easily point a   ║
 ║  few groups, like NAPALM, which has been accussed of stealing (crack,      ║
 ║  releases) and had *MANY* fuckups in its history, yet no one banned them.  ║
 ║  Instead we want to focus on bringing you all quality releases.  Our       ║
 ║  first one was Philip Marlowe's Private Eye, 100% working full version.    ║
 ║  We hope you all consider it as a good start.                              ║

 ║      I read RCN #20 and it had a lot of good information in there, there   ║
 ║  are of course some things I don't understand such as your NFOs.  You      ║
 ║  post the NFOs for courier groups and release groups, but why don't you    ║
 ║  post NFOs for art groups or tell about the latest H/P mag or something    ║
 ║  like that.  I mean well, or I would write this letter.  So please give    ║
 ║  me information on why that is so.                                         ║

 ║      Also I'd like to point out the letter that Rio & Ken wrote.  Why is   ║
 ║  he so pissed?  If his name doesn't get posted in here most likely it      ║
 ║  will get posted on Razor 1911's Web Page.  Why must he go off like that?  ║
 ║  This is a great e-mag, like he mentioned.  It serves its purpose giving   ║
 ║  out information on the weekly lives of the warez scene.  After all, that  ║
 ║  is what it was meant for.                                                 ║

 ║      A famous quote I can think of, "Can't we all just get along?"  After  ║
 ║  joining a few channels, and being involved in the underground scene for   ║
 ║  10 years, I have seen some good groups come and go.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You see the BBS scene vs. the Internet scene is totally different,    ║
 ║  in the BBS scene, you don't see people blasting the groups that courier   ║
 ║  to the boards there.  If fact, most people praise the courier's work in   ║
 ║  uploading a few hundred megs of files to a board.  No one ever said fuck  ║
 ║  this group, this group sucks because they bite off of this group.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      However, in the Internet scene thats all I see now in most of these   ║
 ║  channels.  If its ragging on ROR for duplication of Quake Beta 3 Full     ║
 ║  Release, and stripping the beta logo out, or if its for Hybrid releasing  ║
 ║  a game with a few fixes that have to come later (Warcraft 2).  Better     ║
 ║  yet it's the newer groups that are trying to come up in the scene.  It's  ║
 ║  really sad how a lot of people blast groups.  To those people I am        ║
 ║  writing this article.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Here is a nice little lesson you need to know, and maybe you'll       ║
 ║  think twice before opening your fucking mouth to say groups suck.  You    ║
 ║  should all respect each and every group that comes out in the scene.      ║
 ║  They are there to help us all excel in the scene.  Passing and getting    ║
 ║  software to all those people who want it.  If there wasn't such a demand  ║
 ║  for this software these groups "ALL" would die.  Just think if groups     ║
 ║  like THG (The Humble Guys) and Razor 1911 never got going, they were a    ║
 ║  good inspiration for most of the other groups to grow up and be like      ║
 ║  them.                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You see we all are in the same boat, we all use the software, we all  ║
 ║  trade the software.  The next time you say anything about a group         ║
 ║  sucking, remember what they are doing to help us out.  They are risking   ║
 ║  a lot when they trade that software.  They ALL help us in the end no      ║
 ║  matter what they release or crack, whether its a duplicate or its a few   ║
 ║  fixes for a game or util that doesn't work.                               ║

 ║      I agree with you, but only to a certain extent.  We are all on the    ║
 ║  same boat, but we don't ALL trade the same files.  Personally, I only     ║
 ║  wish to trade WORKING REAL files.  I don't enjoy downloading 50 disks     ║
 ║  for a game that doesn't work, and nobody else should have to go through   ║
 ║  crap like that also.  Groups such as THG and Razor 1911 release WORKING   ║
 ║  REAL files (at least most of the time), and if younger groups want to     ║
 ║  follow in their foot steps, they need to learn how to release WORKING     ║
 ║  REAL files, and not 50 disks of bullshit.                                 ║

 ║      This article or opinion column is something that me and a few others  ║
 ║  have started to notice.  I am the IRC Coordinator of Asylum 96 which is   ║
 ║  a releasing group which is officially couriered by NvC.  I am also a      ║
 ║  courier of AOD.  I have seen two very different styles of couriering.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      NvC, New Vision Couiers, has about 3 private sites that they get      ║
 ║  their warez to.  Then what they do is get dumps.  For all of you who      ║
 ║  don't know what a dump is, it is a anonymous site where people upload     ║
 ║  lots of warez.  When the site is full, it is released to the public so    ║
 ║  that they may all have access to it and download a much as they want.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      AOD, Angels of Death, on the other hand has about 7or 8 private       ║
 ║  sites.  Many of these sites even have ratios on them.  But it is a very   ║
 ║  closed circle.  The warez come into the circle but they don't come out.   ║
 ║  People courier to the sites just in the circle and nothing is going out   ║
 ║  to those bottom of the ground leechers.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now when u look in #Exceed or #M8leech or #Phatfiles, you see         ║
 ║  offerers.  Well these offerers are the main way of getting warez out to   ║
 ║  the general public.  I see offer bots there 24 hours a day, 7 days a      ║
 ║  week, so people can get the latest is 0 day.  I know that NvC has lots    ║
 ║  of offer bots run by one man, |ACiD|, who has about 5 gigs leeched every  ║
 ║  day.  Nobody knows him but a few.  AOD does not support their offerers    ║
 ║  very much.  Groups have really scaled back on the offerers.  Groups have  ║
 ║  about 1 or 2 dedicated offerers and that is it.  The whole public gets    ║
 ║  to know the group through releases, sites, or offerers.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The average Joe never see the big 2 gig t3, 0 hour private site, but  ║
 ║  does this mean he can't have access to the latest in warez?  I dont       ║
 ║  think so.  0 day warez are usually found from offerers.  They aren't      ║
 ║  usually found on anonymous sites or site lists.  You can find the warez   ║
 ║  after about 1 week on a list or a site.  Unless it is something big like  ║
 ║  Duke Nukem 3D.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To the average Joe, IRC offerers are some of the best things.  They   ║
 ║  give out warez for FREE!  They don't expect a site in return, a shell,    ║
 ║  another game or util, or even a thank you.  AOD has not supported their   ║
 ║  offerers well at all.  We don't have a dedicated 0 hour non-ratio site    ║
 ║  for us to download and offer from.  I have to wait until someone finally  ║
 ║  uploads it to a non-ratio site to download it and offer it.  I know I     ║
 ║  try to do my share of uploading but I never get there in time to upload   ║
 ║  stuff before the super courier does.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In conclusion, I would like to say that groups should do whatever it  ║
 ║  takes to have fun.  Second, I would like to groups to be more public and  ║
 ║  open, this can be do with offerers or dump sites.  People will know you   ║
 ║  if you give them what they want.  Take their requests into                ║
 ║  consideration.  I would also like to say that the scene is very           ║
 ║  cluttered right now.  Not with the nice people but the ones who want an   ║
 ║  edge over the other guy by spying or something.  Remember we can all get  ║
 ║  along if we try!                                                          ║

 ║      Hi, I just wanted to write this because I don't think that all that   ║
 ║  has to be said about this lame piece of shit group called "Reflux."  You  ║
 ║  guys are the shittest group I have ever seen, you are almost RoR under a  ║
 ║  different fucking name. You all eat donkey shit and suck your mama's.     ║
 ║  Why don't you just give it up, you release total crap that is fucking     ║
 ║  huge, that probably cost about 50 cents in a store.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Jesus, all you fuckers are dumbass dorks who wear fucking 3" inch     ║
 ║  glasses because you beat off too much and you are going seriously blind   ║
 ║  because of it.  Also, as for Tklp (aka The Krazy Little Phucker), you     ║
 ║  can go fuck yourself because you are the biggest piece of shit in the     ║
 ║  whole stinking world.                                                     ║

 ║      If you are in Reflux right now, get out, get out fast, because this   ║
 ║  group is going to be even crappier than RoR was.  Which is pretty bad     ║
 ║  since RoR was a way past lame dumb shit group.  You guys are a joke and   ║
 ║  only hurting the scene as a whole.  So give it up fuckheads, everyone     ║
 ║  knows you guys are lame fags who don't have anything better than sit on   ║
 ║  your asses all day releasing crap and beat off.                           ║

 ║      With the new age of the Internet upon us, lamers have begun           ║
 ║  invading.  Their behavior is similar to lemmings they throw themselves    ║
 ║  at non-lamers trying to flood or kick them only to be destroyed and a     ║
 ║  creative story made to IRCops to get them K-lined.  With their sheer      ║
 ║  numbers many have now begun to get firm foot holds in many channels and   ║
 ║  they become harder to recconize for what they are.  Below is a list of    ║
 ║  the most common types of lamers and how to handle them.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Ijustsawhackerslamer - some new user who got a P120, Internet, and    ║
 ║  just rented "hackers."  VERY annoying, will ramble on and on about what   ║
 ║  they can do or have done.  Will often take a non-lamer's handle to seem   ║
 ║  cool and try to be that person.  Best if killed immediately or can to     ║
 ║  usefully send to bother a competitive channel (or a random one if you     ║
 ║  like chaos).                                                              ║

 ║      Stupidlamer - will be online asking "Whats a .exe file?  Dos?  I      ║
 ║  don't need that I have Windows 95.  Mostly annoying but one with an       ║
 ║  attitude should be killed.  If someone who gives a damn carfully helps    ║
 ║  them they might someday reach the level of non-lamer or become one of     ║
 ║  the other categories.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Yeahrightlamer - Joins a channel and refuses to believe anyone but    ║
 ║  himself.  They sit around listening to conversations and say something    ║
 ║  like Nonlamer: I just spent 5 days making a new menu for my BBS in C++.   ║
 ║  Lamer:"C++ thats so fucking easy to progam in I wrote a RPG game in it    ║
 ║  in 5 min you looser besides your too stupid I bet I could in an hour."    ║
 ║  Then you start to arought and the Yeahrightlamer get off on it.  Use the  ║
 ║  same treatment as for the  Ijustsawhackerslamer.  ^^Especially fun to     ║
 ║  stick on another channel^^                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Ownworldlamer - these are especially annoying lamers and should be    ║
 ║  killed outright and K-lined if a corrupt IRCop is handy (I know many).    ║
 ║  They will make their own reality terms like IP address will become        ║
 ║  internet perifial address.  They are usually easy to spot, but kicking    ║
 ║  and banning usually dosn't help as they are loosers who sit on the        ║
 ║  compter all day typing /join #warez over and over until they get in.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      IdotSovont - not really a lamer.  Person who can program patches and  ║
 ║  cracks in C++, Vbasic, ect. in 5min but can't understand concepts like    ║
 ║  dos or shit, wipe, flush.  Don't be seen in public with him but make      ║
 ║  close connects to him on the Internet.  May need help to keep from being  ║
 ║  taken advantage of.  I know many people like this and they are            ║
 ║  invaluable in a channel takeover, cd-riping, any type of programming, or  ║
 ║  phreaking/hacking.  Keep them under your thumb as they might betray you   ║
 ║  for a free Ho Ho.                                                         ║

 ║      Keep an eye out for theses types of lamers.  If this is garbled or    ║
 ║  weird spelled I blame it on capichino, lamers on EFnet, and a need to     ║
 ║  piss real soon.                                                           ║

 ║      Violence was originally the crackers, suppliers, and couriers of      ║
 ║  NGT.  We started the release division because JLennon closed down         ║
 ║  Extreme and merged into us.  He had a lot of things he could supply so    ║
 ║  we decided on a release team.  For about 2 weeks we racked up about 15    ║
 ║  releases, which was pretty good.  It still wasn't doing as I wanted it    ║
 ║  to.  So we decided to break it off into its own release group.  The name  ║
 ║  we decided on was Violence, which Manowar had always wanted to use.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Violence did a lot better than NGT did with releasing.  We put out    ║
 ║  about 15 more releases in a couple weeks.  Still we weren't getting       ║
 ║  enough support.  Mortality duped us, and used the reason we didn't        ║
 ║  spread our releases enough.  At first I tried recruiting better           ║
 ║  couriers, etc.  The job was still not getting done.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      During the last week of Violence, several groups offered to merge us  ║
 ║  into them.  Among those were Legion and DOD.  DOD is a very experienced   ║
 ║  group but they aren't a releasing mecca as they used to be.  Legion has   ║
 ║  been doing very well in the past 2 weeks.  They have very good couriers,  ║
 ║  good sites, etc.  So we decided to merge into Legion.  We dropped a       ║
 ║  couple couriers in Violence, and brought everyone else into Legion.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      From Violence, the staff positions were designated as follows.        ║
 ║  Manowar took the Council spot in Legion.  Dawg and I took senior          ║
 ║  positions, while everyone else pretty much stayed the same place as they  ║
 ║  were.                                                                     ║

 ║      Legion is doing exceptionally well this week.  With 10 releases in    ║
 ║  the past 3 days, everyone and their mom wants to join.  We are not        ║
 ║  accepting any couriers at the moment.  We are going to be the best util   ║
 ║  group in the scene.  'Nuff said.                                          ║

 ║      Recently Mortality, a very respected utils releasing force, released  ║
 ║  "Omnipage Pro v7.0 for Windows 95."  Omnipage pro is an OCR (Optical      ║
 ║  Character Recognition, or something like that) program useful if you      ║
 ║  have a scanner.  It will help you scan, and, if scanning text pages,      ║
 ║  will convert the text into letters known by the computer as a font.       ║
 ║  This will make the document editable in a word processor.  This is an     ║
 ║  awesome program, and I quickly jumped on the release to download it.  I   ║
 ║  finished downloading it, ran setup, everything was looking good, until    ║
 ║  it got to the serial number.  In Windows 95, I started another DOS        ║
 ║  prompt and opened up the MTY.NFO file.  I looked for the serial number,   ║
 ║  entered it, and proud that it worked, continued on.  Then I couldn't get  ║
 ║  it to recognize that I had disk1 in a "disk1" directory.  Dumb program.   ║
 ║  I went back to the NFO file just to find that I had to put the thing on   ║
 ║  floppies to install it.  Who ever has 5 floppies lying around any more?   ║
 ║  5 ZIP disks maybe, but the last time I saw a floppy disk, I was a little  ║
 ║  boy!  I was pissed off, so I cancelled everything and went online trying  ║
 ║  to find some Mortality senior I could vent my anger out on.  Mortality    ║
 ║  didn't even bother to crack their release.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Unable to do so (maybe they were hiding!) I found a guy from UCF who  ║
 ║  told me that UCF had just released a crack to fix the release.  My        ║
 ║  thoughts quickly shifted from cussing out Mortality to getting the        ║
 ║  program to work!  I downloaded the crack, and surely enough, everything   ║
 ║  worked.  In fact, I don't remember ever having downloaded a crack by UCF  ║
 ║  and having it not work.  No UCF member ever came up to Mortality and      ║
 ║  yelled at them, no UCF member shouted at them for not doing something so  ║
 ║  simple as finding a cracker (UCF would have done it if asked), UCF        ║
 ║  quietly took the release and, without any fuss, released a crack just a   ║
 ║  little while later.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      UCF has always been one to chase after releases and fix others'       ║
 ║  fuckups, it has been done almost religiously, and never have I seen a     ║
 ║  member of UCF yell at any group for messing up.  UCF takes requests with  ║
 ║  open arms, but that's like offering a drug addict free rehabilitation.    ║
 ║  Mortality's reason for releasing a half-working release wasn't because    ║
 ║  they couldn't find a cracker, it was because they wanted to be fast       ║
 ║  about it.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      UCF has done a wonderful job of cracking programs for the scene for   ║
 ║  2 years now.  They've seen many groups come and go, yet they have hung    ║
 ║  on, and quite well I might add.  A few groups are blessed with having a   ║
 ║  few crackers from UCF as their own members, DOD quite blessed with        ║
 ║  having Misha as a member, and it's true, I haven't seen any uncracked     ║
 ║  DOD releases as long as I remember.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So let's all congratulate one of the scene's truly finest groups,     ║
 ║  and give the United Cracking Force a big round of applause, a much        ║
 ║  deserved one after two years of consistent cracking, and there's no end   ║
 ║  in sight.  Thank you for all the work you have done for us, UCF, and      ║
 ║  keep it up, you're doing a wonderful job!                                 ║

 ║ █UCF█: UCF was founded in the beginning of 1994 by just 2 crackers, Sonic  ║

 ║        slowly, that was the time I talked with Sonic, a hell of a cracker  ║
 ║        even today, about building our own group.  I always wanted to have  ║
 ║        my own group, and that was how it started.  We only release cracks  ║
 ║        and nothing else.                                                   ║

 ║        Attitudes) utils cracked by UCF, does UCF do special crack          ║
 ║        requests for these big utils groups?                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: UCF released and releases cracks for any kind of software, we like  ║
 ║        or we get requests.  Mostly we crack what is uncracked but could    ║
 ║        be needed by a lot of people like D-Studio v4.1 or MIRC v4.52, but  ║
 ║        sometimes we even do cracks for well known groups to help them      ║
 ║        out.  On the other hand, most members from UCF are also in other    ║
 ║        groups such as DOD, Napalm, PWA, Prestige, and X-Force, therefore   ║
 ║        you see the names of our crackers everywhere.  If you mention       ║
 ║        DjPaul, Lost Soul, Misha, or The Riddler, they all are in other     ║
 ║        groups too.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I know that managing a weekly electronic magazine such as RCN is    ║
 ║        very hard and that is why RCN is one of a kind, much the same way   ║
 ║        that there is only one dominant cracking group, UCF.  I assume      ║
 ║        then that running a cracking group such as UCF must be very         ║
 ║        difficult, since there is only one cracking group that anyone has   ║
 ║        ever heard of, UCF.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: Running UCF wasn't that hard in the beginning.  For 1 year, UCF     ║
 ║        consisted of only 2 members and even with only 5 crackers on        ║
 ║        board, it was easy.  But right now, UCF has nearly 20 members,      ║
 ║        including couriers and traders.  To tell the truth, it is a lot of  ║
 ║        work right now especially for me, because I have to coordinate a    ║
 ║        lot of things besides my own cracks, that take up a lot of my       ║
 ║        time.  I cannot recommend to do it like I do it now.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I always see a lot of new courier and release groups popping up,    ║
 ║        but I rarely see new cracking groups pop up.  Why is that so?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: I too see a lot of new groups popping up, not even in cracking but  ║
 ║        in games and utils too.  But most of these groups come and go.      ║
 ║        UCF WILL STAY as long as I have energy, and I have a lot because I  ║
 ║        like this cracking.  And I am sure, most of us like the challenge   ║
 ║        that cracking gives us.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How did you learn how to crack software?  Did you just pick up a    ║
 ║        book that taught you how to crack?  If so, what's the name of that  ║
 ║        book?  I want to check out that book from my local public library,  ║
 ║        but then again, I do have this really big fine and I haven't        ║
 ║        really picked up a book in a long long time.  Anyway, if it did     ║
 ║        take you something more than one book to learn how to crack, then   ║
 ║        could you describe your process in becoming a proficient cracker?   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: In the beginning, I only read one assembler book, to get the        ║
 ║        opcodes of a program to crack.  But after 2 years, I bought the     ║
 ║        second one, MS The Programmer's PC Sourcebook!  This one was and    ║
 ║        is the most used book by me.  Nothing than plain information is in  ║
 ║        it, no damn time wasting converstation.  Other recommended books    ║
 ║        should be Win 95 and Visual C++ Stuff from Andrew Schulman and      ║
 ║        Matt Pietrek, I would not read anything else.  Beside these books,  ║
 ║        you need NU-Mega Software such as WinIce and Soft-Ice.  But in the  ║
 ║        end, your brain decides if you will become a good cracker or not.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Software companies have always put cheap cd-rom and instruction     ║
 ║        manual checks on their software as a prevention to piracy.  How     ║
 ║        effective are the current protection methods?  Obviously, their     ║
 ║        software protection has yet to be very good if UCF can just take    ║
 ║        software inside out and make it usable by the average Joe.  Is      ║
 ║        there any type of software protection put out by software           ║
 ║        companies that UCF is unable to crack, a new protection of some     ║
 ║        sort that could be used to prevent piracy?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: That depends on the software protection, half of the protections    ║
 ║        can be cracked in less than 30 minutes.  A third of the             ║
 ║        protections include cd-rom checks.  Both games and utils are hard   ║
 ║        to crack in the beginning, but it's nice and easy in the second     ║
 ║        try.  And that is the biggest problem, companies know a good        ║
 ║        protection is useless if it is only takes one time to crack it!     ║
 ║        But still, a tenth of all protections takes a lot of time to crack  ║
 ║        and maybe a tenth is deemed uncrackable.  To name some releases,    ║
 ║        3D-Studio for DOS, Auto CAD German, and Trade Station for Windows   ║
 ║        always took a lot of work to crack because they had very good       ║
 ║        protections.  Some programs such as DIA/DAGO are still uncracked    ║
 ║        even today.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: There are a lot of release groups out there that release software   ║
 ║        without cracking it.  Does UCF go out of its way to help correct    ║
 ║        these misfit releases and release groups?                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: Sure we do, every time we install a program that we need in some    ║
 ║        way, and recognize it is uncracked, we try to crack it and release  ║
 ║        the crack a few days after the original program was released.  We   ║
 ║        do this a lot of times.  Recently, Bounds-Checker v3.0 for Win 95   ║
 ║        was released by X-Force and cracked a few days later by UCF.  We    ║
 ║        keep our eyes open and personally, I think we help the whole scene  ║
 ║        if we fix other groups' misfits.  Hopefully, I only remember a few  ║
 ║        uncracked AND important programs.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: As the President of UCF, what is your opinion of the scene?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UCF█: The pirate scene is really the best we could ever had.  Why?  We    ║
 ║        all help the hardware and software industry just because we exist.  ║
 ║        Without the scene, not even I would have bought a computer,         ║
 ║        because I would have to buy all the expensive software with it.     ║
 ║        Are we all rich?  No.  Software companies would sell nothing if     ║
 ║        nobody had a computer.  Even a lot of people that use a pirated     ║
 ║        programs at the age of 17 consider to buy the same software at the  ║
 ║        age of 22 for business whether they can get it cracked or not, we   ║
 ║        need them all.  I had and have a lot of nice time in the scene,     ║
 ║        and especially because I gathered a lot of real good friends in     ║
 ║        UCF.  I will not miss a single person and I will never miss the     ║
 ║        scene.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: Many people consider you one of the best crackers in the scene.     ║
 ║        You've cracked games that were deemed uncrackable by other          ║
 ║        crackers.  Do you feel that your reputation is warranted?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MSH█: It probably is if the majority thinks that way.  To make it a       ║
 ║        little more clear, I'd have to consider both groups that judge me   ║
 ║        a little differently.  The two groups are crackers and general      ║
 ║        population which is consisted of non-crackers, people who don't     ║
 ║        really know what goes on behind the actual cracking process or at   ║
 ║        what level it's done.  The general public sees the results, and so  ║
 ║        far, my cracks have worked well for many people.  Also, I used to   ║
 ║        write trainers for games, which also probably raised my reputation  ║
 ║        a little for their sometimes non-standard features, I made these    ║
 ║        characters fly for example, which were not part of the original     ║
 ║        game.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you believe that you are also respected among other crackers?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MSH█: I believe I'm also respected among crackers, this is what matters   ║
 ║        most because only crackers can appreciate the actual work, and      ║
 ║        have a certain reputation in that community.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: In your days as a cracker, even though you have had much success,   ║
 ║        which games or utils have you not been able to crack?  Of those     ║
 ║        games and utils that you have not been able to crack, what kind of  ║
 ║        protection was implemented?  If you are not able to crack such      ║
 ║        protection, do companies start using such protection more often?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MSH█: First of all, my cracking skills didn't stay the same all the       ║
 ║        time.  There's always room for learning and experience is a very    ║
 ║        important part of becoming better.  Hardware dongles would be       ║
 ║        considered one of the hard categories because the dongle device     ║
 ║        may contain information needed to run the program and most of the   ║
 ║        time, the cracker doesn't have access to the device itself.         ║
 ║        Script-based programs are usually considered hard to work with,     ║
 ║        things like Visual Basic for example.  Also there are several       ║
 ║        programs that attempt to stop people from tracing and cracking      ║
 ║        them by jamming debuggers, tools used to do most of the cracking,   ║
 ║        but those are very hard to write and maintain.  I still have a few  ║
 ║        programs on my list which I wasn't able to crack because of lack    ║
 ║        of experience and knowledge, most from the beginning of my          ║
 ║        cracking career, all I needed for those is some time.  And things   ║
 ║        like dongles are normally impossible to fully fix without the       ║
 ║        dongle.  I try to stay away from those types of programs.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Which groups are you affiliated with besides UCF?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MSH█: At this time, it's mainly UCF and probably DOD only, but I take     ║
 ║        requests from basically any group big or small so you may see me    ║
 ║        as a cracker in some nfos although I'm not officially in any other  ║
 ║        groups besides those 2.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What's the difference between a good cracker and a good coder?      ║
 ║        Are good crackers also good coders?  And are good crackers also     ║
 ║        good coders?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MSH█: It's interesting and although I don't immediately see the           ║
 ║        connection, but in my experience good crackers can code well at     ║
 ║        least in assembly, and frequently in other langagues.  It's         ║
 ║        different for coders I guess.  Since some assembly knowledge is     ║
 ║        required to crack, high-level-only coders can't crack and even      ║
 ║        demo-coders who code in assembly a lot may not have the             ║
 ║        experience.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Your cracking skills are well known, but are you also skillful in   ║

 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: Many people in the scene now believe that ROR (Release on Rampage)  ║
 ║        and Reflux are basically the same groups with a different name,     ║
 ║        and thus, a bad ROR name might carry over to Reflux.  Do you        ║
 ║        believe that is true?  If not, why not?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RLX█: Well, ROR and Reflux ARE very much alike, but when we started       ║
 ║        Reflux we brought in many new people, including a few suppliers     ║
 ║        and seniors.  We were also given a chance to start over by          ║
 ║        dropping the ROR name.  So in most cases the ban on ROR releases    ║
 ║        shouldn't carry over to becoming a ban on Reflux releases.  People  ║
 ║        who didn't like ROR probably felt that way because of members of    ║
 ║        the group, and will continue to feel that.  I know Tklp and myself  ║
 ║        have made a few enemies, so that affected some of the feelings      ║
 ║        toward ROR.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: ROR files were banned on major boards because Tklp faked the now    ║
 ║        infamous Quake Final.  Tklp said that it was the final version of   ║
 ║        Quake even though Jay Wilbur, and other employees of iD Software    ║
 ║        would vouch for the fact that it was only the beta version hex      ║
 ║        edited to say that it was the final version.  Piston, a former      ║
 ║        senior of ROR also believes that Tklp released a fake Quake Final   ║
 ║        in an attempt to make ROR look good.  Little did Tklp realize that  ║
 ║        his choice in releasing a fake Quake Final would lead to so much    ║
 ║        hatred toward ROR.  Tklp is the leader of ROR, and he is now the    ║
 ║        leader of  Reflux.  In the eyes of the many, Reflux is still the    ║
 ║        same group led by Tklp.  What has Tklp done to warrant a second     ║
 ║        chance?                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RLX█: Tklp is a great a leader, I have stood behind him since the day     ║
 ║        ROR started and everyone criticized him for being young, saying he  ║
 ║        was to young an immature to run a stable group.  In my opinion, he  ║
 ║        isn't on a second chance, everyone makes mistakes, the release of   ║
 ║        the fake Quake Final was one of his.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why won't he do it again?  He chose to do it once, he'll do it      ║
 ║        again.  If he does deserve a second chance, then he better put out  ║
 ║        an official apology for faking the Quake Final.  If he doesn't,     ║
 ║        not very many people will take the new ROR, Reflux, as a serious    ║
 ║        group.  If Tklp could go out of his way to fake the Quake release,  ║
 ║        what will stop him from doing it again on another game?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RLX█: I think that he learned his lesson the first time.  He knows the    ║
 ║        effect it had, and I doubt he would make the mistake again.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yes, he learned his lesson because he was caught.  He'll be back    ║
 ║        again.  He's been raided by the U.S. Marshalls and he still runs a  ║
 ║        pirate group, the guy's a fucking energizer bunny pirate.  I don't  ║
 ║        think he can really learn his lesson.  Moving on, I saw that        ║
 ║        Reflux had its first release a few days ago, was this release done  ║
 ║        by one of Reflux's new suppliers that were not a part of the        ║
 ║        original ROR?                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RLX█: Yes, Private Eye was supplied by Junior Mafia, a new supplier to    ║
 ║        Reflux.  Premiere, another release group, released a totally        ║
 ║        unworking copy of Private Eye.  We decided to take the oppurtunity  ║
 ║        to release a working copy and the sound addon.  We have always had  ║
 ║        strong releasing power, and will continue to.  With the new         ║
 ║        additions, Reflux will be a powerful force in the scene.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I'm sure that Reflux will have a good future as a release group,    ║
 ║        after all, ROR did have some amazing releases, and I'm sure that    ║
 ║        Reflux will be able to amaze the scene in much the same way.  Have  ║
 ║        there been any problems that have come about as result of ROR       ║
 ║        changing its name to Reflux?  I do see that a few ROR seniors were  ║
 ║        dropped during the transition.  Did any of them pose a problem for  ║
 ║        Reflux?  And why were these ROR seniors cut from Reflux?  Were      ║
 ║        they part of the problem why ROR could not keep up a good           ║
 ║        reputation?                                                         ║

 ║ █RLX█: Well, there were no ROR seniors cut from Reflux.  Piston was a      ║
 ║        former ROR senior that left us a while back.  Piston doesn't        ║
 ║        understand the meaning of loyalty.  The other ROR senior, god,      ║
 ║        left the scene to devote more time to his business.  The rest of    ║
 ║        the ROR seniors are current Reflux seniors, with the addition of    ║
 ║        Angel of Death and Lucid.                                           ║

 ║ █RCN█: I'm sure that the scene will give Reflux a second chance, let's     ║
 ║        just hope that Tklp doesn't fuck up again this time.  But I do      ║
 ║        sincerely believe that Tklp needs to get off his ass and write the  ║
 ║        scene an apology letter admitting that he pulled a lame ass trick   ║
 ║        and got caught for it.  I need to hear him confess that he did      ║
 ║        wrong, and I need to hear him say that he will never pull shit      ║
 ║        like that again before I would consider him a changed man.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Being the editors of an e-mag, Rebel Chicken and I are forced to      ║
 ║  keep unbiased opinions about things that happen in the scene.  We can't   ║
 ║  label a group as bad because if they do change their ways, we have a      ║
 ║  duty to the scene to be there and support them once more.  As much as I   ║
 ║  tried, though, I could never keep ROR clean in my eyes.  There were too   ║
 ║  many things gone bad about them.  However, Reflux made a good move with   ║
 ║  their first release, it being a WORKING VERSION of another group's        ║
 ║  error.  I hope that this will be the future of Reflux, and I am now       ║
 ║  willing to, as my duty holds, clean ROR's marred reputation from my       ║
 ║  book, and give them another chance as Reflux.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      However, Reflux's second release, Bermuda Syndrome, turned out to be  ║
 ║  a dupe from November of 1995.  Nonetheless, Reflux showed that they were  ║
 ║  mature about it, and promptly apologized for their mistake.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Many have been bashing Reflux for, in reality, being ROR.  However,   ║
 ║  there's more in the name Reflux than meets the eye.  Reflux symbolizes    ║
 ║  not only ROR, but a second chance, something that the scene has always    ║
 ║  been an unconditional giver of.  So Tklp, and your peers, may you have a  ║
 ║  great future, and may you have learned your lesson from your previous     ║
 ║  faults, many as they may be.                                              ║

 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: How do you think Razor (Razor 1911) currently rates against other   ║
 ║        games groups in the scene?  Razor has been the #1 games group in    ║
 ║        the scene for many years now, but do you believe that it is still   ║
 ║        the #1 games group?                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: I think that Razor will always be the #1 games group due to the     ║
 ║        fact that every game we release is quality and we pretest our       ║
 ║        games so that the end user will not have wasted his time            ║
 ║        downloading a non-working game.  Also bear in mind that although    ║
 ║        Razor may not be the #1 games group in the games chart, we are      ║
 ║        consistent.  I personally have seen many groups come and go in the  ║
 ║        past two years, some dynasties like Pentagram, TDU-Jam, and         ║
 ║        Hybrid.  Hybrid is back though after it had died earlier when it    ║
 ║        tried merging into another games group known as Dynamix which is    ║
 ║        also dead now.  But as these many groups come and go, in the end,   ║
 ║        there can only be one Razor!                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: True, Razor will always be around even when other groups come and   ║
 ║        go.  I've been downloading Razor games since late 1994.  I          ║
 ║        remember sometime in 1994 that I found a text being spread saying   ║
 ║        that Razor had officially disbanded.  I was in shock because all    ║
 ║        of my friends had told me that Razor was a legendary group that     ║
 ║        would be around indefinitely.  I read the text file on Razor        ║
 ║        1911's death, and I found out that TRC (The Renegade Chemist) who   ║
 ║        who was a Razor leader at the time, decided to disband Razor.  He   ║
 ║        claimed that he had disagreements with many other Razor members.    ║
 ║        A few weeks later, I was surprised to see that Razor did not die,   ║
 ║        and that you were the new leader.  How did you become the leader    ║
 ║        of Razor 1911?  It is ironic to see that TRC is now a leader of     ║
 ║        Prestige, Razor's closest competitor.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: In December of 1994, TRC had wanted to close down Razor saying      ║
 ║        that it was the best floppy game releasing group of all time and    ║
 ║        that the group should not continue due to the fact of the           ║
 ║        diminishing amount of floppy game releases.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: That's stupid of TRC, right after he disbanded Razor, didn't he go  ║
 ║        on to start his new floppy games group called Eclipse?  What was    ║
 ║        he smoking?                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: I took it upon myself to get a general consensus of the group, and  ║
 ║        I found that the majority did not want the group killed.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Of course not, Razor has always been a dominant force in the        ║
 ║        scene, it would be absurd to kill such a good group.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: With the backing of The Gecko and EOS, I called up the Razor        ║
 ║        distribution sites and suppliers and rallied them around.  At that  ║
 ║        point, TRC was surprised to see such a gathering and put up a       ║
 ║        fight with Marauder siding with TRC and Randall Flagg helping.      ║
 ║        The text file being spread was actually a private message that TRC  ║
 ║        wrote in the Razor Conference on The Assassin's Guild, which was    ║
 ║        the Razor WHQ at the time.  King Lear, a Razor courier, took the    ║
 ║        private message and spread it as a text file, he was booted out of  ║
 ║        Razor for doing it.  After about a month, Marauder was the one      ║
 ║        supplier that supplied a few games with his razor.nfo which had     ║
 ║        TRC listed in it.  The rest of the suppliers were using my          ║
 ║        razor.nfo which did not include TRC.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So there were TWO razor.nfos?                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: The final showdown would come on The Assassin's Guild when TRC was  ║
 ║        pumping up his version of Rise of the Triad and the rest of Razor   ║
 ║        pumped up my version with my nfo.  Imagine that two Razor releases  ║
 ║        of the same game with different razor.nfos were being pumped up in  ║
 ║        a race, what a rush!                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yup, what a rush.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: After seeing his loss on The Ghetto, which later becomes the        ║
 ║        Eclipse WHQ, TRC gracefully admitted his loss and that he was no    ║
 ║        longer in Razor.  After that, we turned around our attention and    ║
 ║        we started a mad releasing frenzy.  TRC was filled with revenge     ║
 ║        and hatred and after claiming he would retire, he then started      ║
 ║        Eclipse which would die three months later, then he jumped to       ║
 ║        Hybrid which would die four months later, then he went to Dynamix   ║
 ║        which lasted four months, and now he is finally with Prestige, a    ║
 ║        currently good games releasing group.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why did you have this race with TRC in the first place?  Why were   ║
 ║        there two separate razor.nfos, one with TRC in it, and one          ║
 ║        without?  How could this have happened?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: In my razor.nfo, TRC was not listed cause we had kicked him out so  ║
 ║        he was trying to out release us with his name in his nfo to show    ║
 ║        that he had power in the group.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What an idiot!  If you're not wanted in a group, you might as well  ║
 ║        leave it.  Was TRC hard to work with?  Why did he have to show      ║
 ║        that he had power in the group?  Is he some kind of power hungry    ║
 ║        punk?  Last time I chatted with him, he said to me, "But I am       ║
 ║        god!"  And when I did not acknowledge the fact that he was a god,   ║
 ║        he got really really mad at me.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: TRC is very knowledgeable in supplying games, but he is very        ║
 ║        arrogant and cocky when it comes to dealing with people which       ║
 ║        usually rubs people the wrong way.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How is he knowledgeable in supplying?  What does he do that no one  ║
 ║        else can?  I'm sure he does not work for a games company, they      ║
 ║        wouldn't hire someone like him.  How does he supply?  I'm sure TRC  ║
 ║        doesn't supply games by doing store pick up because he always       ║
 ║        makes fun of Pest from Razor for doing that.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: TRC uses various methods and he does do store pick up and evidence  ║
 ║        of that would be his release of the game "Hoyles Solitaire."        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yeah, Prestige released Hoyles Solitaire the same day it shipped    ║
 ║        into my store.  I work for Egghead, so I know these things.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: If you would've been on top of your game you could have beaten      ║
 ║        him.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Thanks but no thanks.  I don't supply.  I like to keep myself       ║
 ║        clean for purposes of being an RCN editor.  And I think supplying   ║
 ║        is a bore, don't take it the wrong way, it's just my personal bias  ║
 ║        toward taking games home, ripping them, cracking them, testing      ║
 ║        them, packaging them, and then uploading them to some board for     ║
 ║        credits.  There are already enough people who can do that.  Did     ║
 ║        TRC pose problems for Razor even after he left it?  Has he done     ║
 ║        anything that would hinder Razor's work ethics, or its release      ║
 ║        potential?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: TRC has tried to kill the group or damage it by trying to steal     ║
 ║        some former HQs which supplied games and other suppliers as well,   ║
 ║        but people in general like working with me which is why they have   ║
 ║        stayed loyal to me and the group.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Of course, nobody likes to work with someone that has a fucking     ║
 ║        napaoleon complex, but either way, when you found out that TRC was  ║
 ║        trying to kill Razor and was trying to steal Razor suppliers, how   ║
 ║        did you react?  Did you try to stop him?                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: Luckily, I have great informers and everyone is loyal to me so I    ║
 ║        managed to secure everything.  Except for maybe a few traders that  ║
 ║        left Razor, he got away with nothing.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You said earlier that Eclipse lasted four months with TRC running   ║
 ║        it, and you then mentioned that Hybrid and Dynamix also only        ║
 ║        lasted four months.  Do you belive perhaps that Prestige would not  ║
 ║        last much longer than four months also, since it's being run by     ║
 ║        TRC?                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: TRC is from what I am led to believe a minor leader, Zion and       ║
 ║        Speed Master are the leaders with Shadow Master also advising.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yeah right, tell TRC that he is only a minor leader in Prestige     ║
 ║        and he'll blow up.  You also mentioned earlier that the reason why  ║
 ║        Razor is the #1 games group is because it consistenly releases      ║
 ║        good quality games that are tested to make sure that they work, do  ║
 ║        you believe that there are other games groups out there that might  ║
 ║        also match Razor's quality?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: For now and the MOST part Prestige and Hybrid do release quality    ║
 ║        working games, and I hope they continue doing a good job doing so   ║
 ║        because in the end, the whole scene benefits from a good release.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yes, and that's a great attitude toward your competitors.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: What is your current position in Legion?  And what were your        ║
 ║        duties for the group?                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: I was a net coordinator before Acidplain had cut me for no reason,  ║
 ║        and what I basically did was upload to Oasis and BBX for Legion     ║
 ║        and help out couriers.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Acidplain just decided to cut your position as a net coordinator    ║
 ║        for Legion for absolutely NO reason?  I'm sure Acidplain must have  ║
 ║        been ticked off about something right?  He wouldn't have just gone  ║
 ║        around cutting members from Legion without a valid cause.  Were     ║
 ║        there any happenings prior to him cutting you from the group?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: It started about 6 months ago when the courier group Digital was    ║
 ║        still active in the scene.  Acidplain was accepted into Digital as  ║
 ║        a member by Devast, a Digital Leader.  Acidplain told Devast that   ║
 ║        he could get Digital t3 sites, but it turned out that Acidplain     ║
 ║        lied to Devast and when Devast found out, Devast kicked Acidplain   ║
 ║        out of the group.  This morning, X-Factor, a co-leader of Legion,   ║
 ║        was angry with Acidplain because he hasn't done one good thing for  ║
 ║        Legion.  I agreed with X-Factor on that note and also told him      ║
 ║        about Acidplain's prior reputation as a Digital member.  Acidplain  ║
 ║        must have overheard what had happened and since he always hated     ║
 ║        me, he cut me.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: When you say that he cut you, you are referring to him kicking you  ║
 ║        out of the group right?  Were any other members cut as a result of  ║
 ║        what you said?                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: Yes, when I was still a net coordinator, X-Factor had told me to    ║
 ║        help him make a few cuts.  When I came up with the list, Acidplain  ║
 ║        said that I too was cut from the group.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you believe that perhaps Acidplain might be doing more good for  ║
 ║        Legion if he left?  After all, it seems to me that he might only    ║
 ║        be atrophying Legion's already tarred reputation.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: First of all, I would like to get one thing straight, I do not      ║
 ║        consider Acidplain leet at all, many people will agree with me on   ║
 ║        this.  He has done nothing for the group so far and even his        ║
 ║        co-leaders agree.  I must admit that his co-leaders are doing a     ║
 ║        really good job though.  I could tell you that if he were to leave  ║
 ║        Legion, there would be no tears shed by anyone, in other words, he  ║
 ║        wouldn't make the group any worse.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Perhaps he does serve a purpose that benefits the group, but it     ║
 ║        just so happens that nobody can see what he does for the group?     ║
 ║        After all, if he did nothing for Legion, wouldn't he be kicked out  ║
 ║        of the group by now, or perhaps he will be kicked out soon?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: No, I don't think he'll get kicked out because the co-leaders       ║
 ║        don't want to do it because they are scared to.  But I can tell     ║
 ║        you for a fact that one of the co-leaders has been thinking about   ║
 ║        it.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How many co-leaders are there in Legion?  If there aren't more      ║
 ║        than 3 leaders in Legion, then that should really narrow it down    ║
 ║        to who has been thinking of kicking Acidplain out of Legion.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: Well, there are 3 leaders currently, but I think Acidplain was the  ║
 ║        founder although he doesn't do *NEARLY* as much as any of the       ║
 ║        other leaders.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: He might not be doing much good for Legion, but we all know that    ║
 ║        Acidplain is doing SOMETHING for Legion.  After all, we all know    ║
 ║        that he's been out doing stupid things like starting wars with      ║
 ║        more popular utils groups such as Pinnacle.  There is even          ║
 ║        evidence that he has been trying to steal suppliers from Pinnacle   ║
 ║        for Legion.  Acidplain has also been caught flooding channel        ║
 ║        #Pinnacle like he was a 12 year old dickless lamer.  Do the Legion  ║
 ║        leaders and members stand behind his actions?                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: Well, many Legion members are afraid to stand up against Acidplain  ║
 ║        because they all know that he is very immature.  If you speak out   ║
 ║        against him, you get cut from Legion like that.  And yes, I         ║
 ║        believe that he has been stealing suppliers from other utils        ║
 ║        groups.  I don't know whether he has stopped flooding channel       ║
 ║        #Pinnacle though.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How old is Acidplain?                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AOD█: Well, I don't know how old he is, but when I asked him how old he   ║
 ║        was, he replied, "How old is your mom?"  That alone should give     ║
 ║        you a picture of how immature he is.  Legion is still a good utils  ║
 ║        group, it's just that things would be a lot more peaceful without   ║
 ║        a wannabe like Acidplain running around.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A few days after this interview, I was informed that Acidplain was    ║

 ║  now has a 6 gig t3 site, and that he is now a member of PWA (Pirated      ║
 ║  with Attitudes) and Razor 1911.  Upon further confirmation, I was         ║
 ║  informed that he is not really a part of PWA or Razor 1911, and he        ║
 ║  definitely does not run a 6 gig t3 site.  Acidplain was merely lying...   ║

 ║ █PCW█: I am the founder of PCWarez.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What kind of group is PCW and what is it's specialty?               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, PCWarez is a release group specializing mainly in utilities   ║
 ║        and once in a while the odd game and cd-rip.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How old is PCW and how was it founded?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: PCW was founded in February of 1996.  We're going on our 1/2 year   ║
 ║        anniversary.  And basically it was a few of us that got anooyed     ║
 ║        listening to other groups nagging at us so we started our own       ║
 ║        small group that has now grown to +90 hard working mambers.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You have more then 90 members?  That's quite a lot, please tell us  ║
 ║        why your group size is so big?                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, we have our own couriers within the group as well as courier  ║
 ║        groups, we figure the more people the more the warez will get       ║
 ║        around.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So your group is very strong courier wise, where do you spread you  ║
 ║        files first on BBS's or FTP's?                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, I would say it is sent to both equally because we have split  ║
 ║        the couriers in 2 groups, Internet and BBS so they get the files    ║
 ║        to both pretty much at the same time, as well as we have PTA        ║
 ║        (Power Trading Arsenal) offering on IRC and couriering to FTP as    ║
 ║        well.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You said before that your group is a uni-releasing group, how come  ║
 ║        you don't concentrate on only utils or games?                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well we try to stay mostly with utils but if the game is cool and   ║
 ║        we have it handy then why not?                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What is your source of getting releases?                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, we have a few ways, we have suppliers who buy or rent the     ║
 ║        programs, as well as a few suppliers employed in companies wich     ║
 ║        provide software.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What do you mean rent programs?  Where I come from, there are no    ║
 ║        programs available for rent, the only source is either to buy them  ║
 ║        or pirate them!                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, here in Canada there are stores wich rent out cds and         ║
 ║        software, who knows if it is legal or not but they do it!!  And     ║
 ║        these are reputable stores.  We even have certain video stores      ║
 ║        which rent out games.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: PCW was never a big releasing group, but in the last few weeks you  ║
 ║        have released quite a lot of programs.  How many releases do you    ║
 ║        put out in an average week?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: It varies every week!  Sometimes we have nothing and sometimes we   ║
 ║        can release up to 7 to 8 releases a week, but we are still fairly   ║
 ║        young I would like to eventually have it to at least 10 releases a  ║
 ║        week every week.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: There was a rumour that one of PCW suppliers had Quake Final Beta   ║
 ║        before it was released by ROR but for some strange reason, you      ║
 ║        didn't release.  Why did you pass on on such a great game?          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Yes, that is true we had a supplier that had the beta but spent     ║
 ║        all day and night playing the game that we missed the chance and    ║
 ║        ROR released it.  We were not seriously concerned with it anyways   ║
 ║        as we try to stay mostly with the utils.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: When you spread your files, to which FTPs and BBSes do they go      ║
 ║        first?                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, we have all the releases sent to our FTPs and our BBSes       ║
 ║        first and from there the couriers take them to the rest of the      ║
 ║        sites and boards I could not name all the places they go there are  ║
 ║        so many couriers I would never be able to keep track of that all I  ║
 ║        care is that they get out to people.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Many groups usually upload to big FTPs and BBSes in order not to    ║
 ║        be beaten by other groups, how come you don't do the same?          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Like I said, my main concern is getting the files out to the        ║
 ║        people, I like to think we have couriers getting them to the big    ║
 ║        sites first seeing as we give them the files first, but as long as  ║
 ║        they get out and spread quickly.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How worldwide spread is PCW?                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, we cover mostly Canada and United States, but we also have    ║
 ║        people in Europe, Russia, South America, and Middle East so I       ║
 ║        would say we are pretty well covered.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are the future plans for PCW?                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Well, our future goal is to be up there along side Razor, PWA and   ║
 ║        the other big groups but for the near future we would just like to  ║
 ║        release a lot more warez for the people to enjoy!                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Ok, thanks a lot for the interview and is there anything you want   ║
 ║        to say in the closing?                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PCW█: Yes, I would just like to say for everyone to keep an eye out for   ║
 ║        PCWAREZ and enjoy our releases!  Also, to all you group             ║
 ║        prezidents, watch out for Acidplain, he enjoys sneaking in your     ║
 ║        group and stealing your members while you are not looking... very   ║
 ║        lame!                                                               ║

 ║      Recently the scene has seen more releases per day than at any other   ║
 ║  time.  A great contributor to this are the software companies             ║
 ║  themselves.  Just as new groups pop up every day, new software companies  ║
 ║  pop up every day.  And just as most new groups are complete fluff, and    ║
 ║  release nothing but crap, most new software companies are the same way.   ║
 ║  They care more about getting releases out the door quickly than they do   ║
 ║  about taking the time to properly program them.  In fact -- and yes, I'm  ║
 ║  still talking about the companies here -- sometimes they don't even do a  ║
 ║  proper job of packaging their releases!  I remember back in my Legacy     ║
 ║  (LGC) days, we had a release called "Nemesis II" that didn't work right   ║
 ║  off the CD!  We contacted the company and apparently they had forgotten   ║
 ║  to place a file crucial for play under Windows 95 on the CD.  It makes    ║
 ║  you wonder if they ever beta test their releases.  What's worse is that   ║
 ║  the companies are sinking to the level of the piraters they are trying    ║
 ║  to eliminate!                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As soon as a company releases one of these                            ║
 ║  bad/lame/stupid/low-quality releases, the scene does as well, and that's  ║
 ║  to be expected, but many people in the scene don't want to download       ║
 ║  these releases because they are exactly that, low in quality.  That's     ║
 ║  where the problem WE can control comes into play.  I can't blame a group  ║
 ║  for releasing this kind of crap, the scene is one big competition, and    ║
 ║  it is definitely a legitimate way of trying to climb up in the release    ║
 ║  scale, but it's not right when the releasing groups label the release     ║
 ║  with a wonderful tag.  Let's say a company just released "Flight for      ║
 ║  Fun! for Windows 95."  Sounds like a dandy release to me, but the group   ║
 ║  gets it and notices it's complete crap.  Then, their NFO rates the        ║
 ║  release "[ooooooooo.] [09/10]."  A look down will yield release           ║
 ║  information stating that the program is "A kick-ass flight simulator."    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In these competitive times, I don't blame groups for releasing        ║
 ║  anything and everything that they get their hands on, but there is no     ║
 ║  excuse for this sort of behavior.  There are two main items that can      ║
 ║  always be expected in releases in the scene today.  They are A) A         ║
 ║  FILE_ID.DIZ file so that when the file is uploaded to a BBS, it will      ║
 ║  automatically extrapolate the description, and B) a group NFO file so     ║
 ║  that the end users can find out information about the releasing group,    ║
 ║  and so that they can find out about the program they might want to        ║
 ║  download.  Good practice would be to fill the release info section of     ║
 ║  the release with the text on the back of the box, that should give the    ║
 ║  end user enough information about what the release is, and then a short   ║
 ║  few lines about the group's assessment of the program.  If it says that   ║
 ║  it recommends a 486 DX 33 MHz and the group ran it on a Pentium 100 and   ║
 ║  the scrolling was unbearably slow, mention that the release might only    ║
 ║  be ideal on a Pentium of at least 133 MHz.  If the group is lazy          ║
 ║  (laziness will never get you to the top) just a bit of information found  ║
 ║  out while testing the program could suffice.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      What is NOT acceptable is when a group puts in 1 line of text about   ║
 ║  the program that any idiot could infer from the program name found in     ║
 ║  the DIZ (though don't take that for granted, a group recently forgot to   ║
 ║  put the name of the program in their DIZ).  What's worse is when a        ║
 ║  respected group does this.  I will offer you some examples.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      What makes PWA think that just because this is a popular program,     ║
 ║  they don't have to describe it?  The most you can infer from the PWA NFO  ║
 ║  comes out of their "Type" field, suggesting it is a "Remote Control"      ║
 ║  program.  However, that would mean, to your average user, that it is a    ║
 ║  program for infra-red control of your computer, or something to that      ║
 ║  nature.  If a group has the balls to rate one of their releases 10/10,    ║
 ║  as PWA did with this release, it should at least say a few words to back  ║
 ║  that up!  A more appropriate description would have been :                ║

 ║  │  any inconvenience this may cause you, but it is the only way we    │   ║

 ║  │  to delete the entirety of the installation directory, keep the     │   ║

 ║      Now THAT is an example of a great NFO.  Adequate description of the   ║
 ║  game, and ample information about how to install it.  I admit that        ║
 ║  install utils is easier than installing games, but I've seen too many     ║
 ║  games released with the same amount of data as the above utils.  Razor    ║
 ║  did a great job here, and their NFO shows that they took time in finding  ║
 ║  the easiest way to install the program, pointing out that "we apologize   ║
 ║  for any inconvenience this may cause you, but it is the only way we can   ║
 ║  get this game to work." (speaking of the SUBST installation procedure)    ║
 ║  Great work by Razor 1911, but does this really seem so hard?  PWA or DOD  ║
 ║  could have just as easily taken another minute to properly describe       ║
 ║  their releases.                                                           ║

 ║      A few weeks ago, Napalm released Battle Arena Toshinden a few         ║

 ║  believe that one group must have stolen the crack from the other.         ║
 ║  Prestige accused Prophet, a Napalm Leader, of stealing the crack, but     ║
 ║  Prophet had a good enough reputation in the scene not to fall easily to   ║
 ║  such atrocious accusations.  Even though Prestige had enough evidence to  ║

 ║      By now many of you may have heard rumors about what caused some of    ║
 ║  the members of Dynamix to join Prestige.  Others of you may not have      ║
 ║  heard them yet, and you might never hear about it.  So I've decided to    ║
 ║  set the record straight before it can get distorted.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It's no secret that I haven't been truly active in a long, long       ║
 ║  time.  However, I always tried to keep myself informed of the goings-on   ║
 ║  in the scene, what groups are best, etc., and tried to keep Zeus going    ║
 ║  getting the inside titles that he's able to pull with little effort.  As  ║
 ║  a member of Dynamix, it became clear to me over time that Dynamix was     ║
 ║  going nowhere fast.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I planned to start putting forth more effort in the summer, when I    ║
 ║  would only be occupied with work, not school AND work.  Anyway, I         ║
 ║  started by giving Zeus a few phone calls and telling him about some       ║
 ║  upcoming games, Duke Nukem 3D among them.  Zeus bagged Duke Nukem 3D and  ║
 ║  Dynamix was revived after its 2 month "rest" while Crackpot was in        ║
 ║  complete control.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As I became more involved/informed and Zeus dusted off the old        ║
 ║  supply machine, it became increasingly clear that the structure of        ║
 ║  Dynamix was holding it back from becoming something more.  This was       ║
 ║  because the founder of the group, BlueWater, didn't have a phone line     ║
 ║  and even when he did he wasn't much of an organizer, and the guy who'd    ║
 ║  been "running" the group for the past few months (Crackpot) had done      ║
 ║  nothing with it even though he'd had all the opportunity in the world to  ║
 ║  get something accomplished.  I felt that I was in a good position to      ║
 ║  start making moves to improve the group, but like I said, I felt          ║
 ║  constrained by the leadership structure.  Changes were needed, but I      ║
 ║  didn't know exactly how to approach this delicate issue.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To make matters worse, neither I nor Zeus really cared for Crackpot.  ║
 ║  At first we tried to work with him, but he seemed to think he knew        ║
 ║  everything better, even to the point where he tried to get himself set    ║
 ║  up with old suppliers who never amounted to much - suppliers like Jack    ║
 ║  from the UK who I've had numerous dealings with in the past, a guy I      ║
 ║  know to be a liar and a thief.  Also, in the 2 months while Zeus and I    ║
 ║  were more or less inactive and in Dynamix, Crackpot had brought in a guy  ║
 ║  from Canada named Hemp Hoodlum to assist him in running the group.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So, here was the scenario - Crackpot, Hemp Hoodlum, Zeus, and myself  ║
 ║  were the handful of guys in "charge" of the direction of the group.       ║
 ║  Crackpot/Hemp seemed dedicated to preserving the status quo and maybe     ║
 ║  going out and picking up a few out-of-date suppliers and untested         ║
 ║  crackers.  Zeus wanted to use his methods of supply to get originals and  ║
 ║  start getting the group moving forward again.  I wanted radical changes   ║
 ║  which would allow us to pick up new members who were currently            ║
 ║  producing, and do so in large numbers.  But to do so would contradict     ║
 ║  what Crackpot/Hemp wanted to do with the group, so I was in a quandary.   ║
 ║  But that all changed.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Speed Master approached me on the Internet and asked me if Dynamix    ║
 ║  would be intersted in a merger with Prestige.  I immediately pondered     ║
 ║  the possibilities - Prestige had a proven UK supply section, a motivated  ║
 ║  US supplier/organizer in Shadow Master, good boards, and also very        ║
 ║  importantly, funding to pay for costs incurred while getting originals.   ║
 ║  They also had several capable crackers which was something that Dynamix   ║
 ║  desperately needed, although we were in the process of picking up some    ║
 ║  guys like Djpaul and had just acquired Holy Beast, 2 solid crackers who   ║
 ║  would add to the mix.  With Dynamix's relatively fluid Internet section,  ║
 ║  along with Zeus, myself, and even Specie picking up the odd title, plus   ║
 ║  any other resources we might have at our disposal, Prestige/Dynamix (as   ║
 ║  it would be called) could truly be a dominating group.  As it turned      ║
 ║  out, that never happened.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So after Speed Master suggested the merger, I thought about it and    ║
 ║  called Zeus to see what he thought.  Zeus had a positive opinion, and     ║
 ║  since one of us never does anything without the other, this was an        ║
 ║  important factor.  So, I called Crackpot up and asked him what he         ║
 ║  thought.  I was surprised to find out that this was something that        ║
 ║  Crackpot had been asked about back in March, but he didn't do it then     ║
 ║  for some reason.  Hemp Hoodlum echoed the info that Crackpot had given    ║
 ║  to me.  Crackpot was initially noncommital about the whole thing, but     ║
 ║  Hemp was vehemently in favor of a merger, along with myself and Zeus.     ║
 ║  In any case,3 out of 4 of us were in favor of the merger, with Crackpot   ║
 ║  in a neutral position at this point.  I mentioned earlier that I didn't   ║
 ║  care for Crackpot, but even so, I wanted this merger to happen on the     ║
 ║  best possible terms so I proceeded slowly with it.  Since there were      ║
 ║  only supposed to be 4 of us deciding this kind of thing, and there were   ║
 ║  only 6 active members in Dynamix total anyway, I didn't discuss it with   ║
 ║  anyone else in Dynamix.  Shadow Master was the main person in Prestige    ║
 ║  that I dealt with on the terms of a merger.  We quickly agreed that it    ║
 ║  was not right for the group to still be called Prestige; neither of us    ║
 ║  wanted to see Dynamix absorbed into Prestige, rather the 2 groups were    ║
 ║  to complement each other as a new force.  Shadow Master told me of the    ║
 ║  reluctance of Prestige Europe as well as Zion (sysop of Zion's Hideout)   ║
 ║  to change the name, so we agreed that I would contact the concerned       ║
 ║  parties about this issue.  There was only one other point of contention   ║
 ║  - the new World HQ.  Obviously, Crackpot desired (and expected) that      ║
 ║  Park Central would be the WHQ.  I didn't really care which board was      ║
 ║  WHQ, but if the truth be known, I didn't care for Park Central any more   ║
 ║  than I cared for its cosysop.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So, when I was informed by Shadow Master that the deal would fall     ║
 ║  through if Zion's wasn't the WHQ, I knew that I'd have a hard time        ║
 ║  breaking it to Crackpot, but I also knew that in political terms, if      ║
 ║  Crackpot was left out in the cold it wouldn't be a problem.  Hemp, Zeus   ║
 ║  and I seemed unified in that we wanted the merger; it would provide       ║
 ║  fresh blood and fresh ideas that would allow the new group to really      ║
 ║  kick ass.  In any event we didn't want to keep Dynamix going the way      ║
 ║  that it was, and as I mentioned earlier I was a definite proponent of     ║
 ║  quick, sweeping changes in the group.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      By this time, several days had gone by since the idea of a merger     ║
 ║  had first been broached, and even Crackpot was warming up to it.  He      ║
 ║  still had some reservations about it, the first among them being his      ║
 ║  power in the group (he constantly stated how we needed to enter the       ║
 ║  merger with the "upper hand" - thinking that I did not agree with him)    ║
 ║  and of course the status of his board.  But when I approached him with    ║
 ║  the 2 major points, those being that (a) Zion's would have to be the WHQ  ║
 ║  and (b) the group name would have to be a coop name, ie                   ║
 ║  Prestige/Dynamix, he immediately lost all interest in the merger.  The    ║
 ║  problem was that he didn't tell me that he had lost all interest, so I    ║
 ║  continued to try to convince him that it was the best idea so that we     ║
 ║  could have his blessing rather than his grudging agreement that we were   ║
 ║  doing the right thing.  In the meantime, he went behind my back and       ║
 ║  started to dismantle the merger before we even got it finalized.  He did  ║
 ║  this by talking to other members such as Specie who really had no         ║
 ║  business deciding the direction the group would head in, and he           ║
 ║  convinced them that the merger was only my idea, and that the prime       ║
 ║  reason driving me to push the group into the merger was my desire to be   ║
 ║  able to brag that I was in the best group.  Whether I'm only interested   ║
 ║  in bragging rights isn't the issue at this point; the problem was that    ║
 ║  he was telling me one thing and telling others another altogether.  He    ║
 ║  contined with his story by telling Hemp Hoodlum to cancel the merger.  I  ║
 ║  mean the guy didn't even have the balls to do it himself.  Anyway...      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So for several days I spoke to Crackpot for at least an hour a day    ║
 ║  extolling to him the virtues of Prestige/Dynamix.  All of the objections  ║
 ║  he posed were totally unfounded, but I can't name all of them here        ║
 ║  because of issues of group secrecy.  One that I CAN discuss, however, is  ║
 ║  his stupid excuse that the group would be lame because the name was       ║
 ║  lame.  Another was that "Dynamix is just starting to be a good group,     ║
 ║  let's not ruin it by joining into a larger one" when in reality it was    ║
 ║  only Zeus who was keeping the group afloat by putting out Duke Nukem 3D.  ║
 ║  When Crackpot started throwing out excuses like that it was pretty clear  ║
 ║  to me that the only real interest he had in the group was to keep it      ║
 ║  right where it was, namely a support group for Park Central.  It was at   ║
 ║  that point that I decided that whether or not the merger occurred, I      ║
 ║  wouldn't be in plain old Dynamix much longer.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      While I left Crackpot to mull over the information that I'd given     ║
 ║  him, I still had one more detail to sew up - apparently some of the UK    ║
 ║  suppliers were opposed to changing the Prestige name, one that they'd     ║
 ║  built up over a period of 2 1/2 years going back to the Amiga scene.      ║
 ║  Having been a member of a group for an extended period of time (Razor     ║
 ║  1911, 3 1/2 years) I certainly understood their position, and at this     ║
 ║  point I was starting to feel that the merge wasn't going to work out,     ║
 ║  but when I spoke to Deathknight (Euro Prestige leader) I still insisted   ║
 ║  that we have the name Prestige/Dynamix so that Dynamix wouldn't just be   ║
 ║  absorbed into the Prestige infrastructure.  I found out from Deathknight  ║
 ║  that he, and even Zion, were totally unopposed to using a coop name,      ║
 ║  even a new name, and that the only stumbling block were the UK guys.  He  ║
 ║  said that he'd try to convice them and would be back in touch.  Since I   ║
 ║  felt that I still had some convincing to do on my end, I figured I'd let  ║
 ║  it sit over the weekend and by Sunday or Monday we should have something  ║
 ║  set in stone.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Well, the next day I got on the net and started chatting with Shadow  ║
 ║  Master.  I told him that I had spoken to Deathknight and was awaiting     ║
 ║  his return so that I could finish up with the merger deal with him, when  ║
 ║  SMaster told me that Hemp Hoodlum had told him that the deal was off.     ║
 ║  Of course I was pretty pissed off, and it just so happened that Hemp was  ║
 ║  on IRC so I jumped into a private chat with him and asked what the hell   ║
 ║  was going on.  He told me that Crackpot had told him that I was telling   ║
 ║  people all these different stories in order to seize power in the group   ║
 ║  and force the merger, and that because of that Crackpot had told him to   ║
 ║  put the merger on hold indefinitely.  Upon hearing this I immediately     ║
 ║  told Hemp Hoodlum that I was quitting the group and exited chat.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Why did I quit so suddenly?  Not because the merger had been placed   ║
 ║  on hold, that was certainly reparable.  The problem I had was that Hemp   ║
 ║  and Crackpot had acted alone without even consulting me (and at this      ║
 ║  point I suspected that they hadn't told Zeus, either).  Since it had      ║
 ║  been agreed that the 4 of us would make the decisions concerning the      ║
 ║  direction of the group, I felt that Crackpot was trying to shut me out    ║
 ║  of the situation so that he could keep Dynamix right where he wanted it   ║
 ║  most - on Park Central, and in his thrall.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I phoned Zeus right away and told him that Hemp/Crackpot had called   ║
 ║  off the deal.  Before I even told him that I had already quit the group,  ║
 ║  Zeus suggested that we both quit Dynamix and join Prestige.  So I knew    ║
 ║  that Zeus wasn't making his decision just based on what I wanted him to   ║
 ║  do.  After Zeus and I had decided that we would indeed leave Dynamix for  ║
 ║  Prestige, I called up a few local friends that I had gotten into Dynamix  ║
 ║  (Bababooey, The Comet) and they agreed to come with us to Prestige also   ║
 ║  - they realized that without Zeus, Dynamix was a sinking ship.  Of        ║
 ║  course Marauder and Randall Flagg came along as well - they didn't even   ║
 ║  have to be asked.  Marauder, RF, Zeus and myself have been friends since  ║
 ║  the beginning of time, and we stay together no matter what.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So after I'd determined who would leave in the initial wave (I still  ║
 ║  had to talk to another good friend, Excessive Knight, who has been out    ║
 ║  of the country for some time and unavailable via phone), I called         ║
 ║  Crackpot and told him that we were leaving.  Crackpot was extremely       ║
 ║  bitter and stated his belief that I was worthless and that I was only     ║
 ║  doing it so that I would be in the best group, and that I didn't care     ║
 ║  about anyone else, etc etc etc.  I tried to show him the light, that I    ║
 ║  wanted to be in a group that could kick ass, that Zeus wanted the same,   ║
 ║  and that besides, out of all the people in Dynamix most of us weren't     ║
 ║  friends anyway, but finally I just dropped it and told him that he could  ║
 ║  believe whatever he wanted to, this would be the way it was and that was  ║
 ║  it.                                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You can imagine my surprise when Shadow Master told me that as soon   ║
 ║  as I quit IRC, Hemp Hoodlum presented himself and told SMaster that he    ║
 ║  and the remaining Dynamix members would join Prestige if it meant         ║
 ║  keeping me and Zeus out.  SMaster kind of laughed at him.  Later on,      ║
 ║  however, Tazman asked me if I'd mind if Hemp Hoodlum joined the group as  ║
 ║  the two of them were friends.  Even though Hemp had kind of screwed me,   ║
 ║  and I gave Hemp a little shit about it, I figured that he was just        ║
 ║  acting as Crackpot's lackey so I didn't have any real objections to him   ║
 ║  being in the group.  This is where it starts to get a little bit          ║
 ║  confusing.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Hemp joined right after our little group of members did, so I wasn't  ║
 ║  really well informed on the whole situation with him.  Boy, was I ever    ║
 ║  shocked to see the next Prestige release that had a whole LOT of members  ║
 ║  in it.  Apparently Hemp Hoodlum misrepresented the whole thing to these   ║
 ║  people and told them that it was in fact a MERGER; and that was just the  ║
 ║  people that he spoke to before putting them in the nfo file.  You can     ║
 ║  imagine I had a little mess to clean up when someone like The Outlaws     ║
 ║  tells me in IRC that Hemp Hoodlum didn't even tell him about the merger   ║
 ║  initially, and that he was surprised to see his name in the nfo file!     ║
 ║  The Outlaws later spoke to Hemp, and like I said was told that there had  ║
 ║  been a merger and that he would retain his German HQ position and even    ║
 ║  become a member.  This was the same story I heard from other people       ║
 ║  ranging from the trader Razor Sharp to the cracker Holy Beast, all these  ║
 ║  people were misinformed by Hemp Hoodlum.  Incidentally, Hemp Hoodlum      ║
 ║  later quit the group, I imagine out of frustration.  The free ride was    ║
 ║  over.                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      And that's the point of this whole essay.  Dynamix was a joke, but    ║
 ║  when it did "work" it was a free ride for people like Crackpot and Hemp   ║
 ║  Hoodlum.  It really is unfortunate because some people really did         ║
 ║  contribute honestly to the group's success; people like Specie,           ║
 ║  Excessive Knight, and a handful of others.  The problem was that when     ║
 ║  push came to shove, the leadership in place was more interested in        ║
 ║  preserving the status quo and their power than they were in expanding     ║
 ║  the good fortunes of the group.  The free ride is indeed over.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  the IRC network so that things don't get out of hand, and when they do,   ║
 ║  there would be a way of controlling it.  The definition of an IRC op is   ║
 ║  a person that is an administrator of a certain IRC server, and has the    ║
 ║  power to "kill" people or "k-line" people from the network.  A "kill" is  ║
 ║  like a normal channel kick, but it will completely disconnect you from    ║
 ║  the server you're on, meaning that you'll have to reconnect to it, a big  ║
 ║  hassle.  A "k-line" is a banning of a user from a particular server.      ║
 ║  Just as one can get banned from a channel, a person can get banned from   ║
 ║  use of an IRC server.  IRC ops were meant to be regulatory agents of      ║
 ║  IRC, but apparently many IRC ops have been greatly abusing their power,   ║
 ║  breaking into others' channels by killing all the ops, and taking things  ║
 ║  into their own hands, when they "feel" like it.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Prae, an IRC op, entered channel #RCN when he had a problem with      ║
 ║  Eraser.  Eraser was not even an op in channel #RCN.  #RCN was packed      ║
 ║  with regular channel ops, assigned by the RCN staff to regulate the       ║
 ║  goings-on in the channel, and it would in no way be the business of an    ║
 ║  IRC op to join the channel and impose private regulations upon it.  RCN   ║
 ║  is in no way illegal, we are merely excercising our freedom of speech,    ║
 ║  and thus, at the time, we were in no violation of any of the rules        ║
 ║  behind IRC, nor were we ever caught doing so in the past.  Though there   ║
 ║  are no real written rules for IRC, nor is there a written constitution    ║
 ║  for IRC ops to abide by, it takes just a bit of common sense to figure    ║
 ║  out what they are, and not much more than that to figure out when an IRC  ║
 ║  op is going over his understood boundaries.  In this incident, Eraser     ║
 ║  and Prae started arguing, and Prae was asked to leave.  He was asked      ║
 ║  about 5 times.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      When he finally had to be banned and kicked, he killed all channel    ║
 ║  ops saying that they were bots.  Generally an IRC op will have to         ║
 ║  justify kills and k-lines so that other IRC ops (to which all kills are   ║
 ║  reported) would know if that op is going too far.  It's sort of a checks  ║
 ║  and balances system, but obviously one that can easily be bypassed, and   ║
 ║  since a jury of IRC ops is never present to assess a situation, it is     ║
 ║  nearly impossible to do anything to fight back against these IRC ops      ║
 ║  "gone bad."  I would like to say that I am not a bot.  Channel #RCN is    ║
 ║  not a warez channel.  Prae was not provoked in anyway.  He was just       ║
 ║  asked to leave, and next to a request such as that, Prae can be           ║
 ║  juxtaposed with any other member of the IRC network, with no              ║
 ║  distinction.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      After we got the channel back, he deopped us and took it again, once  ║
 ║  more with no provocation.  There are about 35 witnesses to this that      ║
 ║  agree it is abuse of his oper powers to take a channel because he isn't   ║
 ║  welcome there.  Please take the time to at least read about how Prae      ║
 ║  takes advantages of his position, and how he too, could once again, take  ║
 ║  advantage of us all.                                                      ║

 ║  <Hitex> Prae, yes if we slander upon you I ask that you take us to court  ║
 ║          but slander has NOT been the case with you and in fact you are    ║
 ║          just giving us more food to eat upon at the current moment.       ║
 ║          Correct, and nor do you own us so just as you said to us, "Leave  ║
 ║          me the fuck alone" I ask the same of you.  If I ever break a      ║
 ║          rule on your server you will be quite welcome to ban me from      ║
 ║          using it, but until I have done so, you have no right to express  ║
 ║          your powers upon me.  Furthermore unless I am colliding or mass   ║
 ║          flooding people you have no right to /kill me nor do you have     ║
 ║          the right to deop people in my channel.  Now unless you cease     ║
 ║          your immature behavior I see nothing to catalyze my ceasing to    ║
 ║          publish information about your truthful actions.                  ║

 ║  <Prae> You can log this, if you'd like.  You are an idiot who likes to    ║
 ║         dish it out but cannot take it, and you go crying to mommy         ║
 ║         everytime someone fights back against your idiocy.  Wahh.          ║

 ║  <RoadRebel> I took it fine.  I am not crying mommy.  You should have      ║
 ║              taken your problem up with the person who wrote that.         ║

 ║  <RoadRebel> Doesn't matter, the letter didn't even say anything bad.      ║
 ║              Whatever you say man.  :)                                     ║

 ║      The thing that makes me laugh the most is that Prae actually reads    ║
 ║  RCN on a regular basis and, to my knowledge, nobody would do that if it   ║
 ║  wasn't an enjoyable experience, so Prae must be a big fan of RCN.  If     ║

 ║  <SMaster> I am all for being pissed at people who leave, but nuking       ║
 ║            their board accounts is going too far.  Plus, TSR forgets that  ║
 ║            people do NOT join groups for life and can leave if they like.  ║

 ║  <Immortal> Speed Master, I believe it was a more personal issue, not a    ║

 ║          and THEN kept making fake accounts on our system for over 15 to   ║
 ║          20 minutes.                                                       ║

 ║  <Sysop> OK, I think we already established that it might not have been    ║
 ║          you, but it WAS someone using the same name.  So I did what I am  ║
 ║          expected to do here and call the number listed and verify the     ║
 ║          account.  We do that now for all trial accounts anyway before     ║
 ║          any access is given.                                              ║

 ║  <Me> What you did wasn't a nice friendly call to "verify" an account.     ║
 ║       You threatened to sue me even though "I haven't been on since        ║
 ║       5:00."                                                               ║

 ║  <Sysop> I'm sorry you didn't find it friendly enough, but we've had       ║
 ║          little kids continually calling and setting up bogus accounts     ║
 ║          out of the phone book.  I was actually the friendliest you would  ║
 ║          have found here because I just issued a warning and let you know  ║
 ║          that if it WAS you, that you better stop.  Other sysops might     ║
 ║          have handled it differently.  Soooo, if you aren't to blame,      ║
 ║          then I suggest you just forget about it since you're not the      ║
 ║          guilty party.  If you are, then you shouldn't do it again         ║
 ║          because you could get into trouble.                               ║

 ║      For those of you that don't already know the story, I will go over    ║
 ║  it in an attempt to clarify what is going on.  A short while ago, an old  ║
 ║  group, ROR, decided to call it quits after having their releases banned   ║
 ║  from all the big boards.  This was a result of their releases, as a       ║
 ║  general statement, not working, or being releases nobody would use.       ║
 ║  Tklp thought he would be smart and he renamed the group to Reflux,        ║
 ║  taking in several new members.  His decision paid off, the scene          ║
 ║  accepted Reflux and gave it another chance, still understanding that it   ║
 ║  was basically the same thing.  On one of Reflux's first releases, they    ║
 ║  put out "Bermuda Syndrome," a wonderful Windows 95 game.  However,        ║
 ║  Bermuda Syndrome had already been released by FBI in November of last     ║
 ║  year.  The game slipped through their dupe checking department.  Though   ║
 ║  it caught many eyes and raised many eyebrows as a result of Reflux's      ║
 ║  already marred reputation from ROR, people let it go when Manic, a        ║
 ║  Reflux senior, released a text file (cheap trick for keeping it from      ║
 ║  making it too far past the Internet ;-) apologizing for their mistake.    ║
 ║  It was a respectable apology and was taken in a good way.  People         ║
 ║  understood that people make mistakes, and these guys just made a lot of   ║
 ║  them, this soon after the Quake scandal in which they just edited the     ║
 ║  dates on files to make them look like a different release.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Today, another member of Reflux released the following text file      ║
 ║  attempting to con the scene into believing that the release was in fact   ║
 ║  NOT a dupe and that it should be regarded as a great release by this      ║
 ║  already shaky group.  Note that I'm writing this article because Rebel    ║

 ║    b) intro/outro add-on;                                                  ║

 ║  In a 30 minutes it turned out that a group called US and FBI released     ║
 ║  that game months ago. We were told we did a dupe. Our senior [-Manic-],   ║
 ║  in order to save RLX's good name, released an official apology. That was  ║
 ║  a right thing to do in that time, but now we want to explain *all*        ║
 ║  details and get over this accident...                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  ...because in a fact BERMUDA SYNDROME was not a dupe. Here is how:        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  1. We have released *different* version, version 1.2. Just look at the    ║
 ║     patch included in PATCH.ZIP on the first disk. Apart from this: the    ║
 ║     old version had around 186 megs on CD, ours has around 220 megs. The   ║
 ║     old release is in Russian, ours is in *English*. In our version the    ║
 ║     dialogues are different also, when you look at the old release you     ║
 ║     will see.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  2. The reasons for the above changes is that the game is about to be      ║
 ║     released in the West. The game was written by Russians, and Western    ║
 ║     people demanded changes (animations, dialogues, etc.). BERMUDA         ║
 ║     SYNDROME is now being advertised in UK press, for example. So the old  ║
 ║     release was just some kind of test version, and we have released the   ║
 ║     final thing.                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  3. Old release version was over 60 disks. In that times the disk limit    ║
 ║     for a release was 30 or 40 disks, I do not remember, never mind. Now   ║
 ║     it is 50 disks. Still *very* far from 60... SO THE OLD RELEASE SHOULD  ║
 ║     BE TREATED AS NON-EXISTANT! This is just a simple logic: scene has     ║
 ║     its rules and we have to listen to them. If disk limit is exceeded,    ║
 ║     then release is a fuckup and noone should give a fuck about it.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  In other words: RLX released *correctly* stripped version (not exceeding  ║
 ║  the disk limit), in *proper* language (English speech and English         ║
 ║  dialogues translated by our bro Alchemist), and in *latest* version       ║
 ║  (1.2, which is supposed to be final).                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  The game would be GAME OF THE WEEK in Ionizer's Games Review, if not the  ║
 ║  scene, which jumped on us screaming it is a dupe. This the simply the     ║
 ║  best Windows'95-only game I ever saw, and we just cannot let it go. We    ║
 ║  would not sacrifice a *very* hard work of a few people (ripping,          ║
 ║  cracking, translating) just because of old, lame, 61 disk release of      ║
 ║  Russian version.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  I can imagine a few you who now think to themselves: "Geez, fuck RLX,     ║
 ║  they did a dupe, they cannot be trusted because of RoR's fuckups, they    ║
 ║  cannot see the sad truth, they should be banned" etc. To those people     ║
 ║  all I can say is: read my explanation again. Think about it. Do not be    ║
 ║  biased.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  And finally: the release was supplied by very close friend of game's      ║
 ║  main programmer. Here is what his friend T0k, president of util group     ║
 ║  SODOM, has to say about it:                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  So, i wanna tell u someffin about this release from reflux... all u know  ║
 ║  it was released from FBI... Bermuda Syndrome few months ago...  but:      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  1. 1st thing why u must belive me: `coz i know *PERSONALY* ppl from       ║
 ║     company who coded this game, in russia, and i was 1st who get this     ║
 ║     game... i mean i was 1st on scene who take it in hand, so, tell me     ║
 ║     now, why the fuck, i need to release twice??? sure reflux released     ║
 ║     new version of Bermuda! ask yourself, why i didn't i hear about this   ║
 ║     game before??? if it is so fucking cool, as Ionizer write in review    ║
 ║     about it??? i can tell u why... `coz "FBI" release shit...             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║    -- non working version... like beta or someffin...                      ║
 ║    -- without English patch... *russian language only*                     ║
 ║    -- lame rip...                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  that's why noone heard about this briliant game... IMHO best arcade game  ║
 ║  for windows 95 for last few months. And when some ppl tell me the game    ║
 ║  was nuked, `coz siteops or someone see JUST "BERMUDA SYNDROME" and        ║
 ║  thinks that was a dupe... so... look, this release from reflux was realy  ║
 ║  decent, and i'm glad to tell u, that most part of europen siteop, don't   ║
 ║  nuke it, and understand that was good/new one, u'll see it when they run  ║
 ║  it, and n`joy... so... in the future... if u wanna scream/nuke someffin,  ║
 ║  just cheek it out 1st... and don't panic... ok, thats all this time.      ║
 ║  thx.                                                                      ║

 ║  BERMUDA SYNDROME was *not* a dupe. Anyway, we are releasing this *final*  ║
 ║  explanation just to clear things up, not to start a war or anything.      ║
 ║  When you will be safely enjoying BERMUDA, knowing that it is OK release,  ║
 ║  we will strike again with another game. Because that is what we are for.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now for the part where I tell you that this is complete bull shit     ║
 ║  and should have actually been in Mad RCN because it's so amusing.  I      ║
 ║  have great respect for Manic because he just got up and made an apology   ║
 ║  to the scene for a mistake.  I'm sure the general concencus among Reflux  ║
 ║  members upon finding out that they duped was a shiver here, a shiver      ║
 ║  there, an "oh crap" here and another there.  Manic suppressed the fear    ║
 ║  and just said the truth, apparently while JdA was coming up with a good   ║
 ║  lie that he thought the scene would believe -- very unprofessional.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Obviously there are some huge leaps that JdA ignored while writing    ║
 ║  his file.  Generally if a game company wants to release a new version of  ║
 ║  a game, they'll do so and name the version 2.0.  That is, the game will   ║
 ║  be a bit different, like JdA said.  However, this wasn't the case with    ║
 ║  this game.  Perhaps the game was a different version, I could buy the     ║
 ║  verison 1.2 business, after all I have no way of verifying it now, as 8   ║
 ║  months is a bit late to go looking on sites, but if that's the case, and  ║
 ║  if you could fit a patch on one disk, WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU JUST        ║
 ║  RELEASE THE PATCH?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Also, don't try to say the old release is non-existent, FBI never     ║
 ║  agreed to any disk limit 8 months ago, and neither did ROR/RLX now,       ║
 ║  because you guys were not invited to the meetings regarding it.  So       ║
 ║  don't try to justify yourself by claiming others' faults.  If anybody's   ║
 ║  release should be claimed non-existent, it's yours, because you're the    ║
 ║  one that said you had one of your own guys translate the game, and last   ║
 ║  I checked the warez scene releases software by the companies, not half    ║
 ║  by the companies and half the group's work.  RLX is lucky because ROR     ║
 ║  was granted a second chance, but don't expect old views of ROR to be      ║
 ║  lost, you weren't granted a new life, just a new name and a second        ║
 ║  chance.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Finally, if this hasn't convinced you yet, please explain the file    ║
 ║  dates.  The file dates still said October 1995, which sounds a lot like   ║
 ║  the FBI release.  You guys did a better job on the Quake cop out, at      ║
 ║  least there you faked the dates, you didn't even do THAT for this         ║
 ║  release.                                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I hate to break it to you but Reflux is already banned from Beyond    ║
 ║  Akira, and I shudder to think about how many more boards that ban could   ║
 ║  be extended to.  Next time take more responsibility for your actions.     ║
 ║  And JdA, Manic has guts, you're just fluff.  Your group doesn't           ║
 ║  necessarily represent you, but you always represent your group, and       ║
 ║  you're making a fool out of Reflux.  I just hope that people will         ║
 ║  disregard your lame excuse for a rebuttal and listen to Manic's one.      ║
 ║  Reflux duped, they made an honest mistake, and did more than most groups  ║
 ║  would after a dupe, they apologized.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      It might sound kind of weird to pick a machine over your friends but  ║
 ║  to some of us, that's reality.  How many of you spend more time on your   ║
 ║  computer than seeing your friends or talk to your friends?  In the old    ║
 ║  days, you'd ask a friend for help when you were feeling upset.  Nowadays  ║
 ║  you just start couriering your head off and you keep your problem to      ║
 ║  yourself.  That's not healthy!  I bet that most of you don't even need    ║
 ║  most of the stuff that you download!  Maybe you'll want the odd game,     ║
 ║  maybe a ten mes release or so but comparing to the useless stuff you've   ║
 ║  couriered, it's nothing.  At this rate, no one will even speak by the     ║
 ║  year 2000!  Think about it!  When you have a problem, talk about it with  ║
 ║  someone.  Don't just type "/msg ???-DCC xdcc send #1"!                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I remember when I had a girlfriend, she would sometimes ask me, "Is   ║
 ║  that box really important to you?"  I would just laugh and avoid the      ║
 ║  question.  After all, what can I say?  Should I say, "Yes, it's more      ║
 ║  important than you!"  Or should I say, "Nah, I don't even use it that     ║
 ║  much!"?                                                                   ║

 ║      There's one thing you have to remember, you bought the computer and   ║
 ║  the computer is owned by YOU.  Computers can be part of your life but     ║
 ║  shouldn't take over your life.  If you're bored then fool around on the   ║
 ║  computer but if you've got something to do, do it!  Don't play IRC and    ║
 ║  not do what you have to do.  Life's short, have fun!  Sex, party,         ║
 ║  movies, more sex is far more interesting than looking at the scene that   ║
 ║  changes images every second.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Being a courier myself, sometimes I ask.  "Why do I courier?"  The    ║
 ║  answer is often unknown.  People courier because of different reasons.    ║
 ║  Some people will be happy if they have fast warez to upload.  Some        ║
 ║  people just do it because they have nothing better to do.  Some people    ║
 ║  might think that couriers are jerks that have no life and just sit in     ║
 ║  front of the computer and wait for uploads and downloads to be done.  I   ║
 ║  have three words for these people, "Shame on you!"  Without these         ║
 ║  people, the files would not move around nearly as quickly as they do      ║
 ║  now, and also, if there were no couriers in the world, the warez scene    ║
 ║  would not grow as quickly as it has.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      My friend always tells me that I have no life when couriering and I   ║
 ║  say, "What is meant by no life, if it's not going out, then I do have a   ║
 ║  life because I go out with my friends a hell of a lot more than you!"     ║
 ║  You don't have to be in front of the computer when you courier, you can   ║
 ║  be watching TV, going out with friends, having sex.  Even studying if     ║
 ║  you're bored enough!  So next time you want to insult a courier, not      ║
 ║  like anyone would have the guts to because there are millions of          ║
 ║  couriers out there, just think twice about it.                            ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║
 ║  --------                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The game was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [ 4] Above Average, and                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 5] Excellent!                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║

 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The game was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║  like they came from this century.  Some of the games include the          ║

 ║  Poker, Holdem, Keno, Lotto, One Arm Bandit, Pot of Gold, Roulette, and    ║
 ║  Video Poker.  It certainly is not that nice collection of card games      ║

 ║  review courtesy of Tornado, I thought it was slightly humorous : "Well    ║
 ║  the games are playable.  The games are 16 colors all of them.  They       ║
 ║  aren't registered.  You have a 30 day trial period which is fine because  ║
 ║  you can't even play this crap that long.  Basically it's for idiots or    ║

 ║      Here's the working version of this detective game.  Precision's was   ║
 ║  not cracked or cracked properly, and so Reflux took a crack at it <der    ║
 ║  get it?> and was able to make it work fine w/o the need for               ║
 ║  subst/fakecd.  This is an adventure game involving many interactions      ║
 ║  with characters, and of course, as all good detectives do, looking and    ║
 ║  searching for clues.  The graphics are ok, and you pretty much NEED the   ║
 ║  sound addon in order to play, or else you'll be walking around clueless.  ║
 ║  You really need the full cd for this one, in order to figure out the      ║
 ║  plot, because it uses movies or something that tell the plot (such as a   ║
 ║  guy getting killed) and you need to know what happened.  It's hard to     ║
 ║  play with out them, because you're talking to a guy one minute, and the   ║
 ║  next you see he's dead on the floor, and you missed it all.  One          ║
 ║  annoying thing was when the game tried to load the movies, it would get   ║
 ║  an error, you have to hit ok, and then escape too, and this gets to be    ║
 ║  very annoying.  It might be a good game on CD, but it's not worth it to   ║
 ║  get this rip, because you're missing out on half the game.  Unless you    ║
 ║  plan on buying this one and want to see what it's like, don't waste your  ║
 ║  time.                                                                     ║

 ║      The game play is very similar to that chinese RPG, what was it        ║
 ║  called, oh, Knights of Xentar.  You walk around the village and stuff     ║
 ║  trying to do something, who knows what.  The storyline is long and,       ║
 ║  well, slightly complicated, but the intro tells it nicely.  The nfo says  ║
 ║  it's like Zelda, it is, but unlike with the rectangle type areas, it's    ║
 ║  just all open.  You're going to have to use the defined keys, Z and X     ║
 ║  for left and right, and P and L for up and down, spacebar for shooting    ║
 ║  weapons.  Game is overall lame, and would require hours upon hours to     ║
 ║  beat it.  The sound and gfx are pretty primitive.                         ║

 ║      This 202 meg, fully installed, game is worth it...if you like         ║
 ║  playing the detective type and have the room.  The game is mostly a       ║
 ║  combination of a picture backgrounds with movies of people as the         ║
 ║  interaction.  The video animation isn't of high quality, but it does the  ║
 ║  job.  Game's got a lot of zooming in on areas as the way of picking up    ║
 ║  stuff and/or using things.  There's tons of stuff to do, and I'd          ║
 ║  estimate it would take about 10 hours to beat the game if you walked      ║
 ║  right through it with a walkthrough.  Otherwise it would probably take    ║
 ║  several days, cuz it looks like a biggy.  The story line is this : Your   ║
 ║  g/f tells you to meet her somewhere, you go there, hear shots, find her   ║
 ║  dead, and while your over her, someone takes a picture and gives it to    ║
 ║  the police, so they think your the murderer, and so your on the run.  If  ║
 ║  you got the time to play it, it could be worth checking out, other wise,  ║
 ║  stick to something smaller.                                               ║

 ║      Lemmings Paintball for Win95.  Let's see here.  This game was         ║
 ║  supposedly released earlier by Hybrid, but apparently that version was a  ║
 ║  beta, or a release meant for computer magazines and far from complete.    ║
 ║  The game idea is simple if you can put 2 and 2 together, Lemmings +       ║
 ║  Paintball.  The game is cool, but relatively easy.  It has a multiplayer  ║
 ║  for playing over the net, but is otherwise very easy or very hard         ║
 ║  depending on the settings.  The intro is hilarious, and I'm glad Motiv8   ║
 ║  left it in.  Overall, a good small game with a good rip.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Install Note: This game was previously screwed, but a fix was         ║
 ║  released (finally..) after about 8 days.  Thanks to PSG for fixing the    ║
 ║  screwup! Just install according to the .nfo in the fixfile.  If ya get    ║
 ║  something to the effect of: "wing32.dll not found" you need to install    ║
 ║  WinG32 included with the fix.  DUH! :)                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Hmmm.  I like it.  Dunno why, but I like it.  This isn't an action    ║
 ║  shooter, but gameplay is fast - due to the virus on your ass wanting to   ║
 ║  eat you up!  It's more strategy than anything.  Ya gotta move from block  ║
 ║  to block laying down tiles to walk on top of as you go.  Simple enough.   ║
 ║  HA! You get a limited amount of tiles AND your previous tiles get eaten   ║
 ║  as you go.  There's some special kinds of tiles that do different         ║
 ║  things, and you can grab power up items on your way to the end of the     ║
 ║  level.  The music rocks with a techno rhythm, and there's clear           ║
 ║  understandable speech at the beginning of each level.  The graphics are   ║
 ║  excellent but don't stop to admire them! There's even pan/zoom options    ║
 ║  to move the view around the game area.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║    Points: 82 - All in all, not a bad game.  It's definately different.    ║

 ║  Ok, now this fix all by itself doesn't work.  I was highly pissed off     ║
 ║  about it too, until Ionizer, Mr.  Ereet himself /msg'd me this in IRC:    ║
 ║  *** Topic for #napalm: Close Combat Fix - ATTRIB -R *.* /S on the         ║
 ║  Install Directory. FINALLY, after all this fiddlefucken around, the game  ║
 ║  works.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So, to install: Do everything according to the original .nfo (copy    ║
 ║  this fixed .exe instead of the original cracked one), then in the dir     ║
 ║  you ran setup from type "attrib -R *.* /S", try to run the game, when it  ║
 ║  craps out load up regedit and do that, then PLAY!                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As for the game itself, it pretty much kicks ass.  This isn't your    ║
 ║  run of the mill overhead military battle sim.  In most sims, you put      ║
 ║  troops here, hit a button, and poof they either win or lose.  In this     ║
 ║  one, you can control your troops even after starting the battle (like     ║
 ║  you should be able to), and even tell specific people to do specific      ║
 ║  things (move here, aim there, etc..) You can be either side too.          ║
 ║  Germany pretty much defends and the good ole USA tries to take            ║
 ║  buildings, landmarks, whatever (umm what? so they can give em back        ║
 ║  later??) Your troops can get medals, promotions, etc for getting shot,    ║
 ║  or good work.  I was kinda disappointed that I couldn't call in           ║
 ║  airstrikes, but we got old fashioned mortar maggots to do the job right.  ║
 ║  The sounds were excellent, you hear alot of shit all at once, ppl         ║
 ║  getting shot, radio chatter, mortar fire, tanks, and even a little        ║
 ║  german mixed in..  The help file wasn't included, but there is on-screen  ║
 ║  help during gameplay and alot of the stuff is self explanitory.  Don't    ║
 ║  hit the news reel button after a mission either, it'll crap out looking   ║
 ║  for the video files.  I only played through the first mission (I've       ║
 ║  still got 3 releases to review in about 9 hours, WHILE leechin my ass     ║
 ║  off..ughh), but this is definitely a keeper!                              ║

 ║  Remember that old 2600 game Decathalon? heh Not quite that bad.  But in   ║

 ║  I was expecting a "fry out 2 joysticks in 8 hours" type of game, but all  ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Install : Nasty.  Not only do you have to do the fakecd thing for     ║
 ║  the install, you have to do it everytime you wanna play the game.  Pure   ║
 ║  shit.  I think that if you don't have a cracker, you shouldn't release.   ║
 ║  Period.                                                                   ║

 ║      Anyway, about the game..  This game ran kinda choppy on my system     ║
 ║  (see system info at top).  But if it was just choppy, I might play it a   ║
 ║  little bit, but after about a grand total of 3 fights, this one got       ║
 ║  nuked.  The grafix weren't all that great, and the sounds were rather     ║
 ║  annoying too.  Read the readme file in the program icon folder for the    ║
 ║  setup keys and shit.  It's got a couple different rez modes (don't look   ║
 ║  at the low rez mode, you'll get scared), and you can turn textures        ║
 ║  on/off.  Just a shit release, everything pretty much sucked.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║         Points : 35 - Shitty grafix, shitty sound, shitty install..        ║
 ║                               Anything else?                               ║

 ║      This is one of the best games I've seen for 95 so far.  The only      ║
 ║  thing I don't like is it being 50 disks, but ya get what ya leech I       ║
 ║  guess (hrmm sometimes).  The grafix on this kicks a helluvalotta ass.     ║
 ║  Smooth animation..  I take that back, it's somehow better than smooth.    ║
 ║  It kinda reminds me of Pitfall for 95 but extremely realistic.  The       ║
 ║  soundtrack from what I heard of it, has a damn hard beat to it.  Kicked   ║
 ║  my AWE and woofers into overdrive.  The plot starts out with you saving   ║
 ║  this half naked chic (w00h00) and finding out that you have to get out    ║
 ║  of the jungle alive while saving her father, who just happens to be the   ║
 ║  king.  hmm Maybe I'll play this game to the end to see if ya get to bang  ║
 ║  her or not..  Just way too much good stuff to say about this game tho.    ║
 ║  In case you can't figure it out, try the tab, enter, and space keys.      ║
 ║  The mouse works as a pointer, but the right button takes ya back to the   ║
 ║  main menu.  No real options to speak of, I do wish that it would go full  ║
 ║  screen at 800x600, but I ain't bitchin much, cuz this game ROCKS!         ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║

 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║

 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The util was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║
