Sorry... yes, most of us are playing OP. Sounds like you would enjoy the UAW mod and server.

I think Amazon has OP for cheaper than you'd find on ebay:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005JD51/104-4292245-0309551?v=glance ($28).

I vaguely remember a Messiah... did you play Hydran mostly? I seem to remember that name in purple.

Wow....the past is alive...good to see the old ones return
Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand
Says "don't you see?"
Gotta make it somehow
On the dreams you still believe
Don't give it up
You got an empty cup
Only love can fill
Only love can fill

No, actually I was a Fed player... I think I was still 'learning the game' as they say then real life impeded and I eventually had to move on.

AND YEAH!  I found a copy and lucky for me the CD key worked!  It took a little doing, but I d/led all the necessary patches and the game is working great!  When I logged into the gamespy dynaverse I saw 3 server:  Tavern, Forge & Beta... I went onto the beta and checked things out - it was good times!  I've still got some refreshing to do on my skills though.

That sounds shiny.  I'll be in and hopefully I will have improved by then.  So far the computer is OWNING me in space battles, I've won about 2 out of 6 and of the 2 I won, it took a LONG while for me to finish it out.

My gosh, do you know how long its been since I used this name? *dusts off his old hydran uniform*

I went searching for the old Taldren forums on a whim, and tracked it down to here.  Great to hear from you again S'faret!

Just goes to show you, in this age of the internet, anything you write will survive anything.  Shame thats not some of my best work.

Thanks a lot - these articles are a goldmine! I never knew there was one written on the D7, or a detailed frigate article.

Ummm...I think I got OP patched to 2.5.5.2 or something like that.  I don't have any of the patches outside of Taldren or from Mag or anything.  Or was 2.5.5.2 Mags work?

Thanks for the tip on the key, PMing an Admin now.
