((There is nothing to null. For nothing has been stated, or even shown that its a secret government OS. Surely enough, Syberion would have had a hell of a time operating in it if he had.

There is no indication of any such secrets or proprietary, save that it doesn't do that fragmentary storing shit or else Cain would be quite dead.


Whoops.))

((Syberion possessed the awesome power of Force Metal, thus, presuming that even if he had no inside knowledge of the OS, he could defeat its security anyway. It helps to know basic computing principles.

Lastly, there has also never been a transfer from HunterNet to less than modern tech and equally no indication it'd work. Current, real-life computing history demonstrates the unlikelihood that they would work.))

((Updated for 90 years?

Wait, I think you fucked up that sentence, X. Really no idea what you're trying to say.

" So you are putting forth the argument that the HunterNet, which may or may not run on a secret government OS, stands a chance of having a filesystem that is readable by an operating system that has been being updated for at least over 90 years."

I think there's supposed to be a negative in there, but it could go in a couple different places. ))

((First, You are playing in a world where blue robots save the world.

Secondly, there is no indication that it WOULDN'T WORK.

Thirdly, again, see the first point.))

There we go, that's better.


I'm getting sick of people trying to take control of stuff that's meant for any player to use. If it's a "public" thing(which HQ and HunterNet damn well are), then it's not really up to any 1 or 2 people to decide.))

((I'm running with the hypothetical that your argument that Vista has been updated is correct. I.E., ten year old tech is archaic. Thus, -10 years.

Besides... Money has stated that Vista is unable to process the digital avatars of files. Note that HunterNet does. That indicates a fundamental difference in how they read and process files... which most likely makes it either incompatible or utterly unable to be edited without severe corruption.

Besides... Notepad is a plain text processor. I doubt the scan Money pulled was plain text.))

Not only that, you REFUSE to compromise despite it being ridiculous?))

((That hardly damages my current argument. X was designed with that explicit ability. I really doubt HunterNet, a military network, was intended to be that far backwards compatible and allow its files to be read by even tech that old... HQ can afford to issue computers.))

((I'm saying that 10 year old stuff is archaic, so it doesn't need to be 100 years to be archaic. It could be anything in between.

And, so you know, I can open Mac-only files in Notepad... So I have no idea what that means!))

((Well, it was clearly only a textfile under a different extension if Notepad could open it, and it displayed plain text with no gibberish.))

(( Wow. I never thought I'd see the day where X was arguring with half the forum and actually had BASIS for it.

X is right. You CAN NOT just open any file in notepad and view it like that. Most of the time it's un-readable.

It's a botch, plain and simple. ))

So, yeah.))

((This is not evidence against the point Ed made, only evidence against a point that Notepad has changed in the past 8 years. I do not personally know if that is true or not, but I'd assume it is not, given the differences in other programs, such as paint.

Additionally, in an alternate future, Notepad could feasibly be used for just such a purpose, as a universal editing tool. There is absolutely no evidence that such a thing would be impossible or improbable.))

((The fact that he used names from our reality creatively to make a tie-in doesn't mean everything's the same.

In fact, it could very well be Moneycorp Windows Vista, and not Microsoft Windows Vista.

It doesn't need to be specified, because it's purely imaginary, and he gets to make up what the program can do.

If I have a weapon I can just say "High powered gun with muzzle velocity of 300 MPH" I don't need to explain the entire mechanism of the gun, nor do I need to explain who made it. It just does it, because we say it did.))
