ROL4 - the first time it ever made it to public
« on: April 21, 2010, 04:21:01 am »
As some of you know, in 2007 I worked on a RPG called the Reign Of Legends 4. However it never made it past the menu and battle design. In late 2009 I uploaded what I had in Omnimaga archives. However it was not the first time I made the project avaliable for download. The first time it ever made it online was at the following URL, which went down since then

I am surprised the Tinyurl is still even up:

This directory path really existed and had stuff there. I do not remember what besides ROL4. I know a F-Zero X video was a bunch of directories earlier. (I split the URL in multiple lines since it would break the page otherwise and it's down anyway since Netham45 PC got hit by lightning the summer after. That was during the Omnimaga dark days)

If someone discovered the first part, they would get easily bored with the folder names, most are folders named new folders. But it is part of the "security" in long path names. ;D

I would "invite" a bit the visitor with folders like "click me", "enter and see" and such in the beginning of the enter folder race. But that is just me. ^^

But I presume the server folder listing was off, so it was nearly impossible to find the link without someone giving it to you.

EDIT: the edit altered substantially the post but it was harsh without I realize it. Hopefully DJ helped to keep in the friendly way. Sorry

I know but still, the fact it's a huge directory path remains :P

Yes, it is. :o You surely beaten my try of doing the folder long path. It was many years ago when Windows XP was recent.

Partition type makes limitations on path length, I think in that time I was using FAT32.
But in Linux, I think it allows even larger paths than Windows NFTS.

I did folder names like "click me", "what is inside here", "continue" and "new folder" when I didn't had more inspiration. xD

Now I am curious to see the length limit in computer usual partitions types. >_>

I always wondered the lenght myself too. I  know some windows directories and some open source games goes very very deep.
