hey Raion-Fox,

I have about 3GB worth of nekoware/contrib that I sync'd around jan 2017, I haven't been able to find that dir mirrored anyway, need me to upload my copy?

there is this sites' ftp -> ftp.ftp.irisware.net/incoming

I haven't tried to upload anything yet (was going to maybe upload all the "contrib" stuff I had from my nekochan mirror - dunno if its wanted yet) but you can give it a shot

OK, I uploaded the patched ISO w/license, we'll see if it becomes available.

I don't see it - can you tarball it and reupload? It might have gotten auto-deleted if not .tar or .gz format

Ok, I tried again with a tar file.

I also uploaded the Flame 4.0.2 iso/gz. Very curious if someone can get this working. Actually I managed to patch the license (I believe the Discreet Irix keygen out there does not work for Flame 4) and GFX checks, however I never got past the startup screen on my 6.5.22 SGI O2. Maybe not too surprising (!), it probably is integrated somehow with older series graphics.

Also made a patch so that Flame 8 would run on the O2. Pretty interesting, as the last version of Effect/Flint for O2 was 7.1, however the preview playback was noticeably slower, compared to Effect 7.1 for the O2.

Btw, I remember a post on mood-indigo mentioning that something called "spark772_o2.tar" could be found among other IFF products on the Discreet ftp. I think I read somewhere that this is a later rebadge of Flint for the O2 (previously named Effect and FlintO2), though probably very rare. Interested if anyone has this!

you got flame working on an o2? very nice - can you share that? I have a few copies of spark for o2 - I'm uploading it now. I have versions 7.6, 7.71 and 8.0. I was never able to get them to work though, they require S+W for the framestore, and swfs complains about the software epoch being too high and it just dies. I've been trying to figure out how to modify swfs.o in IDA Pro to correct this issue, but I'm not really too good at it and I haven't really made any progress. I'm honestly not too good with modifying a "hello world" program with IDA pro, but the struggle continues Smile I had a thread about it on nekochan actually... /sob

Yes, I don't have my O2 connected at the moment, but will have a look if I find the patches needed. But, if you have Spark 8 (Flint 8?) for O2, I think there is no need for flame, they are basically the same, I guess, except some of the top end features (and Flame might be slower/less optimized for O2). I'm surprised there even was an IFF 8 release for the O2, it is not mentioned anywhere. Possibly it was only released because some large customers demanded it.

Regarding Stone+Wire and the software epoch, I think the solution is simply to install Stone+Wire from the Flame/Flint 9 set. I accidentally discovered this when attempting to patch Flame 9 to run on the O2 (which I never could get to work). I have never seen the S+W error message after this.

yeah I tried all that, I don't recall the details but I ended up failing even with that. I think I came to the conclusion I just needed a crack for S+W at some point. I might give it a good college try again, I might have been making a silly mistake last time, and I hope with it uploaded some more eyes can look at it and we can all get it working together

Re: I think i found an IRIX software repository
There was a Date Rollup Patch from discreet to repair the epoch time error. I never found this patch but the workarround seems to be install an old or newer version of Stone+Wire. Anyway this is only necessary if you are going to use an stone array. From effect 7 there is no need to use an Stone Array and just works with a file framestore or an additional HDD. I can't get working effect 6.1.3 in this way.

From Flame 2007 is not necessary to use discreet firmware HDDs just using the correct data in DL_license.dat, so this seems the best release to install. I will try tomorrow (if I have enough time) in my O2.

BTW Stone+Wire and a Stone array is not necessary to run Spark 7.6. I got it running today with using the file system as framestore. It doesn't works with my 1600SW and I had to connect my O2 via the VGA cable.
