Emulating RCN-08.EXE in DOSee.

Use these tabs to make adjustments to the emulation

If the emulation is taking too long to load, you can turn it off.

Applying changes will reload the page and reboot the emulator





Changes will not be applied until this browser tab has been refreshed





DOS programs need a keyboard for user input

ENTER to select or continue
ESC to navigate back or exit
are often used to navigate menus


Emulation too fast?
Set the emulator to use the 386 CPU configuration
Experiencing graphic or animation glitches?
Set the emulator to use VGA only graphics configuration
Need to turn off the audio?
Disable sound card support

Have no audio?
  1. Try Gravis Ultrasound hardware
  2. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program

  1. Mount the DOS tools drive with automatic run program turned off
  2. Then dir u: to list the utilities, some included programs 4dos.com cp.exe acidview.exe pictview.exe
  3. Use mount to list the emulated drives
  4. Learn the DOSBox commands

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, 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.

 █   yet, you should look out for it.  Though about 2 weeks late, it's        █

 █      We got the idea for this project a few issues back when we didn't     █
 █  know what to write about for the next issue and were feeling that both    █
 █  of the e-mags were beginning to get a little repetitive, and that we      █
 █  needed to have something new, yet something essential for the warez       █
 █  public to hear of.  While brainstorming, it seeemed that almost on the    █
 █  same note, Rebel Chicken and I jumped and said "Let's interview the       █
 █  FBI!!!"  We giggled a bit, laughed at our apparent stupidity,             █
 █  childishness, and moreover, FOOLISHNESS, and continued to brainstorm.  I  █
 █  don't think we were at all forgetting about this new idea, though, and    █
 █  not five minutes later, we came back to it.                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      We began to think more rationally, and attempted to find a way of     █
 █  having a close encounter with the Federal Bureau of Investigation         █
 █  without risking our own safety.  We have worked over the period of        █
 █  approximately three weeks to try to get you the best scoop that we        █
 █  could.  We feel that our coverage is very thorough and that we have done  █
 █  an awesome job getting the important facts out, the facts that we should  █
 █  all know if we're going to stay in this business.  We sincerely hope      █

 █      Recently a new branch of the FBI opened up near our area, San         █
 █  Francisco, California, USA.  The main reason that this agent knew so      █
 █  much about the topic we were studying is (apart from a bit of luck on     █
 █  our part) that this branch is dedicated to the investigation of computer  █
 █  related crimes.  A bit for my own good, I wanted to investigate this to   █
 █  see if they were coming for me, or for the perverts that hang out on      █
 █  #gaysex and trade GIFs.                                                   █

 █      We started by finding a good, comfortable pay phone, namely one with  █
 █  a nice, soft chair, that we could sit on for the length of an interview   █
 █  and be no less comfortable than we would be if we were sitting our asses  █
 █  in front of IRC :-).  We spotted the perfect one, nice, deserted area,    █
 █  and a soft chair!  We were rather excited, went back home, got the        █
 █  number to the department, a tape recorder (despite the fact that the      █
 █  FBI agent preferred we didn't tape it) and headed back to our site.  We   █
 █  called the office, asked to speak with the press person, and were         █
 █  greeted by a very nice person (as most press-people should be!).  We      █
 █  asked whether or not anybody would be able to grant us a phone interview  █
 █  and just as she was about to decline, she spotted an agent that didn't    █
 █  seem to be doing much.  She transferred us to his line, and the           █
 █  interview began (We got a tad more nervous :-).  Here, read on!!!         █
 █                                                                            █

 █   Q  : The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) was first started in an   █
 █        attempt to arrest Al Capone for his bootlegging crimes.  Since the  █
 █        computer age, the government has ushered a new objective for this   █
 █        force.  No longer is the FBI solely responsible for drug dealing    █
 █        and homicides, but they have been granted a greater jurisdiction    █
 █        because it is now responsible for the investigation of other        █
 █        high-tech computer related crimes.  What are your main concerns     █
 █        involving computer crime?                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Computer crime has brought upon us a much more difficult form of    █
 █        crime to investigate.  Currently, our main interests involving      █
 █        computer crime are to eliminate child pornography, credit card      █
 █        fraud, and grand theft.  Such crimes are difficult to investigate   █
 █        because of the distance between the investigator and the suspect,   █
 █        the ease of impersonation, and the Constitution, which keeps us     █
 █        from breaking into high-level programs to grab information about    █
 █        a suspect.  This is still a relatively new field for us, and due    █
 █        to the high rate of development and advancement in technology,      █
 █        our staff's methods must keep up with those of the criminals.       █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Can you please elaborate on the three main concerns that the FBI    █
 █        department is facing?                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Credit card fraud involves people hacking into the Internet and     █
 █        virtually tapping lines where they grab credit card numbers. Then   █
 █        they use the cards as they would their own, often buying thousands  █
 █        of dollars' worth of goods.  Child pornography has come to an       █
 █        all time high this past year.  Pornography has always been around,  █
 █        but it seems that a new form of it has plagued us.  Explicit        █
 █        photographs of boys and girls as young as 8 years old have been     █
 █        found on the Internet, and the government has not been able to do   █
 █        anything about it due to their limited control of people "freely    █
 █        expressing" themselves.  Grand theft is estimated to have been      █
 █        going on for roughly 15 years, making it one of the oldest          █
 █        computer crimes around.  Grand theft often involves the trading     █
 █        of unlicensed software, severely hurting software distribution      █
 █        companies.                                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What keeps the government from completely banning child             █
 █        pornography?                                                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : The United States of America is just that, a set of states, united  █
 █        under one law, the Constitution.  However, the 10th amendment       █
 █        states that all laws not clearly defined within the bill of         █
 █        rights be given to the states.  Thus, different states have quite   █
 █        different laws, including those of child pornography.  Keeping      █
 █        within the laws would be simple for each individual state, but      █
 █        with the Internet, it has become virtually impossible to control    █
 █        data, as most of the time, one does not even know what state s/he   █
 █        is sharing data with.  Even with the passing of laws regulating     █
 █        such activity, enforcement would be extremely difficult if not      █
 █        impossible.                                                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Recently many major software companies, such as Novell and          █
 █        Microsoft, have made a lot of noise about their software being      █
 █        illegaly copied.  Apparently this has been going on in excess of    █
 █        fifteen years.  What keeps the FBI from taking down all the people  █
 █        that pirate software?                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Software piracy occurs in many forms.  One way is when a person     █
 █        simply copies programs for another person on disk, and trades it    █
 █        in person.  Another very common way is online.  The Internet is     █
 █        filled with forums dedicated to computer piracy, and then there     █
 █        are computer Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs) that are also dedicated  █
 █        to piracy.  Restricting trade on the internet, much like with       █
 █        child pornography, is virtually impossible because of the freedom   █
 █        of speech and expression.  The FBI has quite a presence on the      █
 █        Internet sites and chat channels, but can't really do much about    █
 █        what it sees.  BBSs are slightly easier to deal with.  If the FBI   █
 █        gathers enough incriminating information about a certain system     █
 █        (which often takes years to achieve), it may receive a search       █
 █        warrant to raid the operator's house.  The FBI currently has        █
 █        access to a number of the "top" BBSs, most of which have over TEN   █
 █        incoming phone lines.  I can not give specific information on       █
 █        upcoming busts, but I will reveal that the FBI is working on some   █
 █        very significant ones, and is constantly trying to end this costly  █
 █        crime that is causing American companies huge losses.               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What is the usual procedure when a person gets "busted" for         █
 █        software piracy?                                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : It's rather depressing, because the majority of the time, when we   █
 █        catch someone pirating software, it is a person under the age of    █
 █        eighteen.  We don't want a punishment so light that the minor will  █
 █        disregard it and commit the crime once again, but we don't want a   █
 █        punishment so stern that it will ruin the person's life.  When an   █
 █        adult is caught, the outcomes can be quite serious.  Fines in the   █
 █        hundred thousands are often imposed, and all computer equipment     █
 █        containing illegal material is seized.  Being caught for such       █
 █        white-collar crimes can really mess up a person's life.             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What is your main hinderance from being able to take down any and   █
 █        all BBSs that you find in violation of piracy laws?                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We know about many, many boards in violation of such laws.  We can  █
 █        even gain access to many of them, but the FBI is in sort of a       █
 █        catch-22.  When we log on to a BBS, we often find a message         █
 █        stating either that if we are in the FBI, we must disconnect        █
 █        promptly, or that we must leave a message to the operator stating   █
 █        why we want access to a board.  If, however, we do gain access to   █
 █        a BBS, our worries are by no means over.  We have to find a file    █
 █        containing illegal software and be able to "download" it.  Before   █
 █        we can do this, however, we often have to send the BBS something    █
 █        of our own.  That is where our search generally ends.  If we get    █
 █        involved in sending a BBS some pirated software, we are in turn in  █
 █        violation of the law.  Such activities are different from drug      █
 █        dealing where the FBI is allowed to go undercover, and even         █
 █        impersonate a drug dealer.  However, whenever we logon to a board   █
 █        we are stepping into someone's house and must abide by their        █
 █        rules.  Thus, we must have a search warrant.                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : How, then, do you ever take down a BBS?                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Our main resource is Narcs.  When we catch a person and impose      █
 █        sky-high fines on them, they are usually willing to do just about   █
 █        anything to keep from having to pay them.  This is how we find      █
 █        the biggest of boards and stop them.                                █
 █                                                                            █

 █      Due to the fact that our interview was done by phone, the personal    █
 █  level of contact was not there, and the FBI agent felt free to end it as  █
 █  soon as he had to go.  Approximately 15 minutes into the interview, we    █
 █  were forced to end it because he had a call on the other line (DOH!).     █
 █  I think this should be a wake-up call for all of us.  It sure was for     █
 █  us.  We often forget how vulnerable we are.  This interview clearly       █
 █  shows what we must do to keep from getting busted, and I'm quite          █
 █  confident that if we follow those steps, we will be alright for the next  █
 █  few years at least.  We should keep on our toes, though, and keep up      █
 █  with the times.  Congress is constantly debating bills that mostly        █
 █  involve the regulation of child pornography, but could quite easily       █
 █  effect us as well.                                                        █

 █   Q  : You have comments that Razor 1991 should have been rated the #1     █
 █        games group in "Best of 1995 Games" in RCN #7.  What are your       █
 █        reasons for thinking that?                                          █

 █   A  : Well, Razor dominated the floppy scene for the majority of 1995,    █
 █        and became a top notch CD group before the year's end, there is no  █
 █        reason for Razor not to be #1.                                      █

 █   Q  : Many people also believe that the late group, Genesis, was the      █
 █        best in floppy, as far as cracking.  There were many rumors that    █
 █        Razor floppy games were not cracked, and there were many group      █
 █        problems, such as the conflict between The Renegade Chemist and     █
 █        The Speed Racer.                                                    █

 █   A  : Genesis was nowhere near the best.  Razor dominated, as seen in     █
 █        any warez report.  Genesis was known for their low budget titles    █
 █        and as a result got the nickname 'budgetis'.  Being an ex-Razor     █
 █        member, I had tried all the games, and they were all cracked. That  █
 █        is just a rumor.  The Speed Racer and The Renegade Chemist had a    █
 █        power struggle which was at the beginning of the year, resulting    █
 █        in The Renegade Chemist's dismissal.                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Were there any problems with Genesis releases that would make       █
 █        Razor superior?                                                     █

 █   A  : Genesis was budget, and their releasing near the end was minimal    █
 █        because Razor ruled europe, and Europe was the only place floppy    █
 █        titles were coming from near the end.  Genesis titles were between  █
 █        15-20$, BARGAIN discount titles.  They were not as shitty as        █
 █        Tyranny, but they released a bunch of cheap shit.                   █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : TSR and I were in an argument about certain things within Razor.    █
 █        One thing led to another and i told TSR to remove me from the       █

 █   A  : I was one of the Razor leaders along with Pharaoh, TSR, The Gecko,  █
 █        and Third Son.  I took care of my "division" within Razor.          █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Razor is separated into many "divisions", each with its own leader  █

 █   Q  : What were some of Razor's internal conflicts between TSR and TRC?   █
 █        What happened within Razor that made TRC split away and start       █
 █        Eclipse?                                                            █

 █   A  : The problem was, TRC wanted the group to fold, but TSR/The Gecko,   █
 █        and the rest of the crowd wanted Razor to live on, TRC released     █
 █        "Razor is dead" text file, but Razor kept releasing, and a short    █
 █        while later, a vote came to see whether or not to let TRC back in,  █
 █        and they voted not to.  As for Eclipse, that took a while, TRC      █
 █        wanted to become the leader of Fairlight, but that didn't work      █
 █        out, then he joined Tyranny, and Cyber Angel made it clear to  TRC  █
 █        that he wouldn't be the leader so he grabbed his remaining          █
 █        "people" in Razor, and with some outside sources, formed another    █
 █        floppy games group, Eclipse.                                        █

 █   Q  : Why did TRC want the group to "fold?" at it's prime when Razor was  █
 █        the #2 floppy games group?                                          █

 █   A  : Razor had very serious financial problems, and was being beaten     █
 █        by Genesis at the time, so i guess he thought there was no hope     █
 █        and decided to kill the group.                                      █

 █   A  : Of course, every major group does, or at least some of the titles.  █
 █        That's what distribution sites are for, to keep a balanced budget.  █

 █   A  : Hybrid could be a great group, but they have run into a BIG load    █

 █        several times from the group for various reasons.  Tonight was the  █
 █        final straw when one of our ansi artists said he could not be in    █
 █        the group anymore because Physical Form had been bugging him to     █

 █   A  : We demoted him from senior to council just because he was a pain    █
 █        to work with.  We should have just kicked him out.                  █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Basically, I think that he was doing it because he knew that his    █
 █        days in DMN were coming to a close.  He is not a bad recruiter, so  █
 █        that is why we kept him in.                                         █

 █   A  : He was supposed to find us some more suppliers by January 8, or he  █
 █        would be kicked out.  I guess he's been saying to everyone that     █
 █        DMN has never released anything since its first day.                █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : At least that is what I was told by the ansi artist.  I don't know  █
 █        if it was a plot but he was definitely trying to steal members      █
 █        away from the group.  He has been using his affiliation with DMN    █
 █        to get people into aCe.  He would tell people he was a member of    █
 █        DMN, but that he was in a better group called aCe.                  █
 █                                                                            █

 █        aliases, hoping to get accepted as one of them?                     █

 █   A  : I would not put that past him, I have seen him in our channel with  █
 █        different nicks just to watch.  He thinks he isn't seen, but he is  █
 █        an all around lame dude that will bug you about something until     █
 █        you give in.  I guess that is what made him a good recruiter.       █

 █   A  : I am not really sure, but I did say some things that I did say      █
 █        some things that were the other way around.                         █

 █   Q  : The other way around?  You have been accused of many things, among  █
 █        them, for stealing members to aCe, another group you are in, how    █
 █        do you feel, now that you are no longer in DMN?  Do you feel that   █
 █        your status in aCe is more secure?                                  █

 █   A  : I have not, tried to steal any DMN members.  I only asked some of   █
 █        there suppliers, if they wanted to join aCe, because aCe is a       █
 █        games group, not a utils group.  Since the boot from DMN, it was    █
 █        harsh, because it was a pretty good group.  My Status in aCe is     █
 █        very secure, because they treat me with respect.                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Every member of DMN knows that DMN also releases game, and as a     █
 █        senior, I'm sure you must have known about it.                      █

 █   A  : Oh, I really didn't know DMN release games, I have only seen them   █
 █        release one game, so I assumed they do a majority of utils.         █
 █                                                                            █

 █        Which is true?                                                      █

 █   A  : #Fatefiles was taken over by a small band of irc people who         █
 █        decided to keep it all day.  I was unaware until I came along much  █
 █        later that day.  Well it so happened that one of the guys who took  █
 █        it over was a friend of mine way back when I was a little lamer on  █
 █        the undernet.  So we started talking and he invited me into the     █
 █        locked down #Fatefiles.  When he invited me, I just sat in there.   █
 █        I was talking to a member of fATE, storm, who was desynched and     █
 █        was logging the channel.  He decided to post only small parts of    █
 █        our conversation.  I was getting tired of fATE anyways, they are    █
 █        rude, and more concerned about politics and STARTING wars, than     █
 █        couriering warez.  I was basically kicked out for associating with  █
 █        someone who took it over cause I was given the opportunity to take  █
 █        the channel back when my friend opped me.  I told him to deop me    █
 █        immediately and he did.  A couple of fATE members, after seeing     █
 █        what happened through Storm's log file, called me a traitor,        █
 █        Others understood.  They did fire me, and then I asked them to let  █
 █        me resign.  So officially, I resigned.                              █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Those guys who took the channel decided to give it back 20 minutes  █
 █        after I got involved.  fATE was caught with their pants down and    █
 █        couldn't take it back.  That is what fATE deserves when they got    █
 █        a guy like g0d who goes around starting wars with every other       █
 █        group.                                                              █

 █   A  : I guess he is a "loyal" fATE member.  He is pretty nice, but I did  █
 █        not like how he tried to make me look bad.                          █

 █   A  : I was a net courier.  I filled up the sites like you wouldn't       █
 █        believe.  Ask Doobie, he is the main site operator.  I also         █
 █        offered files in the channel about 10-16 hours a day.  I was a      █
 █        very dedicated member and Anti Derivative can't disagree with       █
 █        anyone on that.                                                     █

 █   A  : I have bad feelings toward them.  They lost a very good member due  █
 █        to LAME politics.  If you want to fire someone, get rid of them     █
 █        because they aren't doing their job.  Not because they decided NOT  █
 █        to pick sides in lame wars.  So now I am much happier.  No more     █
 █        soap operas.  I get to focus on writing KittyKill v1.7, setting up  █
 █        my site, and couriering!                                            █

 █   A  : No.  If they invited me, I would certainly decline.  I would        █
 █        rather quit the warez scene than go back to fATE.  They need to do  █
 █        some serious improvements before they end up dying.                 █
 █                                                                            █

 █        She is 1 year and 3 months old, and she already has her own         █
 █        computer.  Oh, and get this, g0d asked me to setup a fATE site      █
 █        after all that trouble!  I said I would think about it, and I did,  █

 █        wanted to start a new group?  Would you care to comment on the      █

 █   A  : I did not leave RTS to start my own group, Death Stalker, an RTS    █
 █        coordinator at the time, did not like me a whole lot.  I still do   █
 █        not know why, but he kept saying that he was going to kick me out   █
 █        of RTS.  So I got tired and left, I then joined NAFTA, another      █
 █        courier group.  At that time, I still had not thought of starting   █
 █        my own group.  When NAFTA died, there were no other decent courier  █
 █        groups (I didn't think RTS would want me back, and I didn't call    █
 █        long distance enough to even try for RiSC), so I decided to see     █
 █        what I could do at running a courier group.  As I said before,      █
 █        MindCrash is not out to compete with the other big courier groups,  █

 █        days.  RiSC is just plain RiSC, the most respected courier group    █

 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I think pretagging is fine with courier groups who are official     █
 █        for certain release groups.  If a courier group has proven          █
 █        themselves enough to a release group to become "official" couriers  █
 █        for them, then I think pre-tagging may be the best way to           █
 █        coordinate things.  After all, if one argument of the tagging       █
 █        issue is true, then it doesn't matter who tagged it, it only        █
 █        matters who uploaded it.  And if that argument is true, then Pre-   █
 █        tagging is almost a way to greet your official couriers in each     █
 █        release                                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : While you were in RTS, what exactly turned you off besides Death    █
 █        Stalker, what finally made you LEAVE?                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Oh, I loved RTS.  I did not want to leave at all.  Death Stalker    █
 █        told me he was going to make sure I got kicked out, so he told the  █
 █        seniors that I was not uploading to my assigned board.  He was      █
 █        halfway right, because my modem was broken for almost a week.  I    █
 █        immediately bought a new one via express mail, but that is not      █
 █        giving me a fair shake.  After that week, I uploaded 50+ megs in    █
 █        one night then he told me i was kicked out.  I asked Dorian if I    █
 █        was kicked out and he said "No way, we just want you to courier to  █
 █        your board." - or something to that effect.  I expressed to Dorian  █
 █        the problems between Death Strike and me, I do not know if he       █
 █        ever believed me.  But in the end, I decided that I could not work  █
 █        for a guy that had it in for me since the beginning, so I told      █
 █        Dorian i had to leave.                                              █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Where is Deathstrike now?  Is he in Malice or RTS?                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Death Stalker eventually left RTS, taking many members with him,    █
 █        to start a courier group called Raw Meggage.  Death Stalker ran a   █
 █        courier group called United Couriers before he was in RTS, so he    █
 █        knew what he was doing.  However, even though Death Stalker had     █
 █        experience, Raw Meggage never went anywhere.  Death Stalker is no   █
 █        where to be found now.  I don't know what happened to him.          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : If you were invited to RTS or Malice as a courier, would you leave  █
 █        your current position in MindCrash to join them?                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : No, I could not do that.  My first priority is my couriers.  I do   █
 █        not care what I have to do, I will do it for them, I owe it to      █
 █        them for the work they do for me.  If they think they need a        █
 █        better President, I will step down then and only then, might I      █
 █        think about joining RTS or MALiCE as a courier, not that they'd     █
 █        want me anyway.                                                     █

 █      This article sparks off of RCN issue #7, the "Mikeysoft" problems.    █
 █  It seems that Mikeysoft and the "irc.portal.com" IRCOp staff have teamed  █
 █  up to fight for a lost cause.  After the Mikeysoft rumor was spread, and  █
 █  and the two groups fought over it (DMN-DTC), emerged some angry users,    █
 █  not angry at Mikeysoft anymore, but angry at the IRCOps, it seems Piker,  █
 █  the ADMIN at irc.portal.com made a list of unregistered KILLS in several  █
 █  channels, such as #Fatefiles and #Demolition. These kills were uncalled   █
 █  for and labeled by the admin as, normal BOT kills.  But few users who     █
 █  were victims claim the same story.  Violator of DMN, logged each and      █
 █  and every one of his /kills to a filelog, and vows to use them against    █
 █  Piker by sending it in to other Admins across the net.  These attempts    █
 █  were met with hostility from other IRCOps, but were proven that Ops were  █
 █  not fond of going up against one another.  This raises a new question,    █
 █  have the IRCOps joined together in one big group, in an effort against    █
 █  all of IRC, vowing never to fight against another?  These are the         █
 █  questions that we want answered, but will these questions be heard?       █
 █                                                                            █
 █      The problem with user response is that they all fear the IRCOps,      █
 █  thinking that an IRCOp will /kill them when they come on, or kill them    █
 █  when they speak to them.  And that fear is wrong, I cannot believe that   █
 █  IRC could ever become so hostile in such a short period of time.  I am    █
 █  also angry at the IRCOps who do not confront other IRCOps who do wrong!   █
 █  It has been a few weeks since the problem with Piker, and there are       █
 █  still no responses, and no actions.  This gives users of IRC a reason to  █
 █  fear the IRCOps, because as "Piker" epitomized, IRCOps can do anything    █
 █  to anyone, without reason, right or wrong, and it will go unheard and     █
 █  unpunished.  So users on irc, beware, the "irc.portal.com" IRCOps, they   █
 █  can do whatever they want, to whomever they please.                       █

 █      When I looked ahead to '96 last year, I expected to see some new      █
 █  faces in the release and courier scene.  In the first week of 1996, the   █
 █  only major game releasing powers that showed us anything were Legacy and  █
 █  Razor 1911.  I was surprised not to see anything from Hybrid, which was   █
 █  quite obviously the biggest release power of the second half of '95.  I   █
 █  assumed, however, that they would release shortly, and probably whoop on  █
 █  the rest of us again, much like they did in '95.  I was wrong.  An early  █
 █  visit to #HYBRID this morning yielded a virtually empty channel, it       █
 █  contained only Hybrid's bot, until that too went down in a split.  I      █
 █  investigated around and the best that I could find was "Well, I HEARD     █
 █  Hybrid was dead, but why would they go down so abruptly?!"                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      It didn't make sense!  There could be only three answers to this.     █
 █  (Oh, if you have any other plausible reasons, please mail them in!)       █
 █                                                                            █
 █               1.  The leadership decided to call it quits.                 █
 █               2.  They decided to PLAY games (with our minds)              █
 █                   instead of RELEASING them :-).                           █
 █               3.  Hybrid is in EXTREME financial problems with             █
 █                   FanFan La Tulipe!                                        █

 █      1.  We saw it in TDU-JAM, and many other groups.  A group of          █
 █  leaders, after months of hard work making it to #1, decides to call it    █
 █  quits.  If this is the reason to Hybrid's death, it is a respectable      █
 █  one, and after all, they came down at their prime.                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █      2.  They just got tired of releasing games.  Yeah, that's it, they    █
 █  just wanted to play with our minds, and are probably pondering a new      █
 █  name for the group as we speak!  I mean, why would such an awesome        █
 █  group go down so suddenly, with no warning, and heck, not even a TXT      █
 █  file stating the death of the group?                                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █      3.  According to Toast, of Razor 1911, Hybrid somehow got themselves  █
 █  caught up in a financial disaster with the ex-leader of TDU-JAM, FanFan   █
 █  La Tulipe!  We haven't too many specific details, but to the naked eye,   █
 █  there would seem to be no reason why Hybrid and TDU-JAM would get         █
 █  involved in any money transfers.                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Hybrid was an awesome group that served us with some of the best      █
 █  quality in CD games releases ever.  It might be too early to tell         █
 █  exactly what happened, but Hybrid wasn't perfect, and they may have       █
 █  had internal problems that we just never found out about.  Who knows,     █
 █  those internal problems may have been what lead to its potential slump.   █

 █  for it.  Ultimately this was for the benefit of the end user, perhaps     █
 █  you.  It was taken for granted that if the end user doesn't pay for the   █
 █  program, the group itself shouldn't either.  Groups would get new         █
 █  releases via store suppliers, who would upload them to a supplier HQ FTP  █
 █  site, where the group seniors would grab it, test it, crack it, package   █
 █  it, and send it on its way.  Once off, the release would be tossed        █
 █  around the world within a matter of hours, and would finally end up on    █
 █  warez boards.  However, it seems that something very different is in      █
 █  fact happening.                                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      As we learned from the interview with Evil Current, virtually all of  █
 █  the larger groups actually pay their suppliers for the warez that they    █
 █  supply.  I don't know if this applies only to games, I suspect that it    █
 █  does, as on the utils side of the market, releases are more abundant.     █
 █  I doubt that the suppliers, most likely store suppliers, paid for the     █
 █  software that they supplied, though, so it turns out that the only one    █
 █  profiting is the supplier.  Groups would make up for the lost funds by    █
 █  charging their member boards and distribution sites a fee for the         █
 █  assigning of a courier to their location, and oftentimes not even that.   █
 █  So far I understand that Genesis, Razor 1911, Hybrid, and TDU-JAM have    █
 █  paid their suppliers and charged their boards to make up for the cost.    █
 █  This is to say that pretty much all the games groups pay their            █
 █  suppliers.                                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I hate to mention Legacy, being that it is my group, because I feel   █
 █  that my words will be assumed to be completely biased, but I'll say this  █
 █  much: Legacy in no way will EVER pay a supplier to supply us with warez,  █
 █  nor will it ever charge a member board or distro site to carry our tag.   █
 █  It might sound idealistic but the truth is that all Legacy members        █
 █  believe in a common goal that we are here to help the scene by giving     █
 █  away FREE games.  If our suppliers are unable to attain software without  █
 █  paying for it, they will be responsible for the funds, as the problem     █
 █  should end at their level.                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      The whole cycle, from the supplier to the board to the end user,      █
 █  should not result in the transfer of any money between the groups, the    █
 █  boards, and the suppliers.  We like to tell ourselves that the scene is   █
 █  just a game and we're all here to have fun, but games never involve       █
 █  money.                                                                    █

 █      I would like to say a few words about a recent release.  I spent 9    █
 █  hours one night downloading a program that I was told to be "Killer".     █
 █  It was "The Planets" released by ROR.  After leeching for an eternity, I  █
 █  got this BIG 36 Disker ??(Check please) release, this was after going to  █
 █  ROR channel in IRC and asking a few times, and getting no response.  And  █
 █  all this after having to beg to be invited into the channel.  I leech     █
 █  this program, unzip it, find out it's not a game, it's a galaxy making    █
 █  program for looking at stars and shit, and from the size I thought I'd    █
 █  at least get to watch great animations and stuff, but no, the cool stuff  █
 █  was ripped out and I was left with a shell.  I would just like to thank   █
 █  ROR for wasting an ENTIRE night on a piece of shit program.  They could   █
 █  have at least answered my questions rather than ignore an IRC regular     █
 █  and justify their obviously due reputation.  Anways, Entropy, my plea is  █
 █  that if a group is going to release a piece of shit like this, and waste  █
 █  everyone's time, at least warn us or answer when we ask what it is.  I    █
 █  know that some groups may have accidently released programs that are not  █
 █  fully cracked or are missing parts, at least they give us enough of the   █
 █  program to see if we like it enough to warrant buying(ECK!) or getting    █
 █  a fix for it, but there is no excuse for SHIT like this astrology         █
 █  program.  That is about it, I just had to vent my anger at a group that   █
 █  obviously doesn't care about the scene or the people that make it up.     █
 █                                                                            █

 █      Irritated, you are not alone on this, and I do understand and         █
 █  sympathise with you when things like this happen.  I also hate it         █
 █  when I go and download something that is 30+ disks and to find that       █
 █  it does not work, or that it is not at all what I was expecting, but      █
 █  you also have to remember that you have gotten this software for free.    █
 █  To tell you the truth, I actually thought that software was a game also,  █
 █  but when I saw the 30+ disk part it drew my mind away from even thinking  █
 █  of getting the program.  Now not going back on what I have said before    █
 █  about software for free and please do not complain, I'm human also.  I    █
 █  sometimes would love to go into a group's channel and just start yelling. █
 █  I think that one of the major problems you had was the lack of support    █
 █  from the group that released the program.  ROR has shown me the same      █
 █  attitude when I have had a question to ask.  The people who release the   █
 █  software should also be mature enough to stand behind what they release   █
 █  and give you support when you need it, and not turn their backs on the    █
 █  public that they are releasing for.  And concerning your "Ream Our Rumps" █
 █  statement I persoanlly would like to hear publicly what ROR has to say.   █

 █  with you that virused programs are very easy to fix, since it only takes  █
 █  about 30 seconds to run a scanner, but it is very bothersome cause you    █

 █      Well I do not think that groups intentionally put viruses into their  █

 █  virus of some kind and when they were adding the diz or what not, who     █
 █  knows.  The thing is though that it would save time and energy for you    █
 █  to just run that virus scanner than to go into a channel and bitch about  █
 █  something that will ultimatly get you no place but banned from the        █
 █  channel.                                                                  █

 █      50+ disk utils in the first place should not even be released.  If    █
 █  something is that big it must be SO important as you would need to buy    █
 █  the software instead.  I do agree with you again that when things don't   █
 █  work it bugs the crap out of me, but what can you do about it?  Nothing!  █
 █  When groups release something MOST of the time the groups go to great     █
 █  lengths to test a release well before they release the program.           █
 █  Sometimes the release may work perfectly on their computers and not on    █
 █  yours.  Who knows, but MY point is that what are you really gaining by    █
 █  going into a channel and bitching about a program?  Are you trying to     █
 █  show off how K-rad or C00l you are by pissing off a group as much as you  █
 █  can ?  It is stupid and a waste of your time and the group's time.        █
 █  Wouldn't you rather they be spend time on another release and perfecting  █
 █  that then having to put up with whining bullshit from somebody who just   █
 █  spent 2 hours of his life getting a software package for free?!           █
