  1. I released a new extended kernel. "FirefoxFix" and "SuperVerFix" are removed from osver.ini. You can use BuildNumber=7600 for Firefox instead, and use the regular version spoofing in other places too where those options would have been used previously. CPU-Z (and other hardware verification software) works again, as does PCSX2 (x86 versions; the newer x64 native builds are still a ways to go, due to reliance on DX 11.3 runtime) and some newer compilers/linkers should work too. A new installer is also used, which lacks the path issues of the previous one. It has a built-in backup facility, and the installer can restore backups from another OS install or a PE environment by specifying the path of the Windows directory of your Vista install. It can be obtained through all the known channels.

  2. New build of Serpent/UXP for XP! Test binary: Win32 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.8.win32-git-20220618-3219d2d-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod.7z Win64 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.8.win64-git-20220618-3219d2d-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod.7z source code that is comparable to my current working tree is available here: https://github.com/roytam1/UXP/commits/custom IA32 Win32 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.8.win32-git-20220618-3219d2d-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod-ia32.7z source code that is comparable to my current working tree is available here: https://github.com/roytam1/UXP/commits/ia32 NM28XP build: Win32 https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/palemoon-28.10.6a1.win32-git-20220618-d849524bd-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod.7z Win32 SSE https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/palemoon-28.10.6a1.win32-git-20220618-d849524bd-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod-sse.7z Win64 https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/palemoon-28.10.6a1.win64-git-20220618-d849524bd-uxp-43cfc69b2-xpmod.7z Official UXP changes picked since my last build: - Issue #1905 - Part 2c - Fix OpenGL crash caused by calling [NSOpenGLContext setView:] on the Compositor thread. Starting with SDK 10.14 I believe, many functions have main thread checks, including setView: and update. So we now move the code in the updateGLContext method into doDrawRect which runs on the main thread. (7224a1790) - Issue #1905 - Part 3a - Resign python binary ad-hoc since install_name_tool invalidates code signature. The code signature is invalidated on Intel as well, but on ARM the binary fails to run with an invalid code signature error. (9f3376e56) - Issue #1905 - Part 3b - Remove iOS support from old-configure. iOS is not really a viable target and Apple Silicon Macs report the same core system. (a2f6708c4) - Issue #1905 - Part 3c - Remove iOS from the rest of the configure system. (02ceb3e1a) - Issue #1905 - Part 3d - Report GNU AS when the system "as" is LLVM-as. LLVM as is generally compatible with GNU, this should allow ICU to build on ARM Macs. (ccdf07735) - Issue #1905 - Part 3e - Fix NSPR build on ARM. The dynamic loader had been falling through to the ancient PowerPC code without __aarch64__ #ifdef (e73d4de0b) - Issue #1905 - Part 3f - Collection of fixes connecting ARM support to the Mac build. Also update ARM XPT code to add Mac/Apple support. (e55ae571d) - Issue #1905 - Part 3g - Final set of changes connecting ARM64 support for Mac. Back out some of the xptcstubs changes that are not viable for our codebase. (be240b340) - Issue #1905 - Part 3h - Fix breakages on other platforms. Mac Intel broke due to incorrect FFI target_dir for Intel. Linux and possibly other platforms use a secondary aclocal.m4 that still referenced ios.m4. (5bf1ed595) - Issue #1905 - Part 3i - Rename the ARM64 assembly files to .S. Necessary because they now need to be preprocessed. (06aa3c8c3) - Issue #1905 - Part 3j - Rename the ARM64 assembly files to .S. Missed the moz.build file in the last commit. (076a0eb27) - Issue #1905 - Part 3k - Separate the GNU and LLVM-as tests.

  6. As said, already reported. It looks as if the flag images are simply missing, everything else is working. Perhaps they come from an external server which is down at the moment.

  10. As long as we're not talking about circumventing Windows activation in general, I'll let the conversation continue. I just want to make sure that if anyone else posts in this thread, do not discuss circumventing Windows activation but if you have issues like this that may rely on your copy of Windows being genuine and it is...then feel free to discuss.

  13. Many years passed and it seemed no one's going to port newer Nvidia drivers to Vista , I decided to do it myself. Also, I decided to do some contribution to MSFN and took some time to create this tutorial . As we know , the last officially supported driver was from the early May of 2016 . This one is from 2017 ! Some may say it's a miracle , you betcha ! It took me several weeks to try and test everything and it works flawlessly ! Had to emphasise a bit (due to some folks not seeing the main detalis). You need to know, I test on a 900 series Titan, and don't know anything about the 1000-series. You don't need the ex-kernel , I tested on a clean Vista with the updates up to 03.2019.* *only because we have lots of updates fans . These are QUADRO drivers and it's not an error ! It's not allowed to share modded copyright protected material here, hence the new topic with the precise instructions follows, it's easy to do when you know what to do in advance . This may seem like a simple mod , agree , but this is only when someone (me) already performed extensive testings on real hardware (not a VM). Tools you need : CFF Explorer , Universal Extractor and any HEX editor you like. Go and grab here: https://ntcore.com/?tag=cff-explorer https://www.softpedia.com/get/Compression-tools/Universal-Extractor-Bioruebe.shtml Download here https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/115278/en-us/ and extract with Universal Extractor to an empty folder : DELETE ALL folders , except : Display.Driver , HDAudio, NVI2 , PhysX. DELETE these Nvidia "telemetry virus" files in NVI2 folder : NvTelemetry.dll NVI2SystemService32.sys NVI2SystemService64.sys NVNetworkService.exe NVNetworkServiceAPI.dll presentations.cfg progress.htm presentations.dll Add your device to the nv_dispwi.inf , also replace NTamd64.6.1 with NTamd64.6.0 and [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.1] with [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.0] Having difficulties to do so ? Then read . How to Modify NVIDIA Driver .INF Files https://null-src.com/posts/nvidia-notebook-driver-inf-mod/post.php Now open Display.Driver and extract these with Universal Extractor to another folder: nvlddmkm.sy_ nvd3dum.dl_ nvd3dumx.dl_ nvwgf2um.dl_ nvwgf2umx.dl_ PATCHING : nvlddmkm.sys - go to offset D571F0 and replace FF84C0740AB8BB0000C0 with FFEB24740AB8BB0000C0, save then open in CFF Explorer go to import directory : ntoskernel.exe and replace KeQueryLogicalProcessorRelationship with KeQueryMaximumProcessorCount memcpy_s with memcpy In CFF Explorer go to rebuilder and REMOVE the checkmark with "PE header" , but select "update checksum", click on rebuild and save. The other four files - go to import directory : kernel 32 K32EnumProcessModules replace with GetProcAddress K32GetModuleFileNameExA replace with GetModuleFileNameA REMOVE the checkmark with "PE header" , but select "update checksum",click on rebuild and save. RENAME all five patched files to nvlddmkm.sy_ nvd3dum.dl_ nvd3dumx.dl_ nvwgf2um.dl_ nvwgf2umx.dl_ and place them them to Display.Driver . DISCLAIMER Some might not like the use of additional software that may or may not be flagged by their KGB/FSB "antivirus". Per various sources , including me , permanent disabling of drivers signature enforcement is just not possible since Vista , so you'd have to use Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b and I'm not resposible in any way ! HOW TO INSTALL the modded driver . Run CMD as ADMIN bcdedit.exe /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING ON bcdedit /set nointegritychecks on Reboot , install the driver. Do NOT restart . Run Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider and choose "sign a system driver". Sign all three ! C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\nvlddmkm.sys C:\Windows\SysWOW64\nvd3dum.dll C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\nvd3dumx.dll Reboot , go and play. Optional : Run RemoveWatermarkX64 to remove the "test mode" watermark . REBOOT. Special thanks to the advisor @win32, who pointed out the location of the version checks in the previous driver (376.11-in the first pic. ), which I finally decided not to use since I found a much better and newer driver 376.84 from the year 2017 (in the pics. from 2 to 6). If you share this topic , don't forget to tag me. @D.Draker. Final thoughts : Vista lives.

  16. ... You could've at least mentioned type of Browser and build version ... In any case. I use Serpent 52.9.0 32-bit here, so that will be the one I'll experiment with... Not being a gamer myself, I had never visited that URL before, but upon loading your link, I can replicate the reported behaviour (i.e. a blank page) ... Disabling uBlock Origin (legacy) makes no difference; as you said, no error stands out in Web Console, but the tab stops loading at: https://s.rsg.sc/sc/js/20220603biee/build/intl-locale-polyfill.js Also, Browser Console reports more: GET https://s.rsg.sc/sc/js/20220603biee/build/intl-locale-polyfill.js.map [HTTP/2.0 404 Not Found 425ms] On an educated hunch, I felt that the page requires the "Intl.RelativeTimeFormat()" constructor, a JS feature first implemented in Firefox (Quantum) v65.0 and Google Chrome 71; more here ... No sigh of that in latest UXP, as you'd have imagined by now... I took an approach I mentioned earlier in this thread, i.e. I took it upon an on-line "polyfill" service (that provides "polyfills" for missing platform Web APIs) and composed a simple Userscript loaded in ViolentMonkey : // ==UserScript== // @name Add Intl.RelativeTimeFormat support // @version 0.0.1 // @description Polyfills 'Intl.RelativeTimeFormat()', first implemented in Chromium 71 // @namespace polyfill.app // @include https://*.rockstargames.com/* // @run-at document-start // @require https://polyfill.app/api/polyfill?minify&features=intl|locale=en~es // ==/UserScript== <!-- Polyfill Intl.RelativeTimeFormat, its dependencies & 'en, es' locale data --> That only accounts for English and Spanish locales; the English version of referenced URI now loads successfully in St52:

  21. Yes, I relate to what you wrote before you edited it. Didn't really mean to criticize you for editing (just in case there was even a subtle hint of that), I know full well that dwelling on negativity isn't good neither. Can't say I've figured out exactly how to balance it. My mind is kinda in the darker place now, though not as dark as sometimes in the past. I used to lose myself in virtual worlds, you know, escapism. That worked for a while to keep the mind from wandering off. Take all the time off you need and all the best to you as well. Can't say about other forums since this is the only one where I'm active ATM, but I think the vibe here was better years ago. Perhaps due to different people. Came for two projects, one abandoned, not much to say about the other, it just works, but otherwise, honestly not sure what I'm still doing here since I don't really fit in here. Nostalgia? Funny thing I forgot to mention few days ago...I only recently realized your name here is XPerceniol, not XPerenciol. My mind always "auto-corrected" that. And about that guy who thought he could function with one liver...can't say the story surprised me, all things considered. One could read about weird things happening all the time...the absurdity. iPhone, iPad, iPwn, iSmack...iBedridden. Got reminded of news of youngsters who manage to blow parts of their limbs off with pyrotechnics in new year's time, all of that misery as the result of that pointless banging. The news is made, gruesome pictures are shown and the world keeps on spinning. Then the story repeats the next year. Since this is Funny Farm...

  23. I know you didn’t specifically ask. I’m sure you may have wondered about it, and I have done the same thing. I’ve been excited for a while to see if there will be any more updates, and there might be if NHTPG feels the need to address any remaining loose ends. But it seems all the meaningful stuff has been taken care of, and I can confirm from my end that 11 runs with the efficiency of a nuclear clock. While 11 is my go-to version, I do have uses for 12 and 13.x, and they do run well on the Pentium D for most things. I will absolutely use one of these versions for a site that has problems in 11, but I haven’t run into a major one yet. Audio/video tend to stutter in these versions, but I’m sure they have no issues on more powerful hardware. In 11 there are almost no problems with stutter, and you have to load a lot of tabs to get it to the point where there is stuttering. In 12 and 13.x it takes only a few to get to that point. I appreciate your work, my brother, and I am thankful for how you have kept us posted on these newer versions. I understand NHTPG’s perspective on how newer doesn’t always equal better, and his efforts to ensure that the fastest versions of each browser, based on a series of tests, were the ones he targeted. I think at this point that he’s happy with his last few releases…after months of daily use, I can say that they are as close to perfect as you can get. If the 360 developers had retained 32-bit XP compatibility with the latest version then it would probably be a non-issue as I have no doubt NHTPG would have taken a look at it and would be working with it right now if he felt the urge or desire to do so. It’s all up to him and however he feels, and what he wants to do. The best thing we can do is to be encouraging and show gratitude. If all that has changed with the later 13.x versions is that they moved the telemetry around, then I agree with him that it doesn’t necessarily warrant putting in the effort to make custom versions of them. If rendering improvements from later Chromium versions were to be backported to the Chromium 86 engine, or if a later Chromium engine were to be targeted for XP, then that would constitute a major change and would definitely warrant taking a closer look. But again, that’s all up to NHTPG.

  24. Speaking only for myself, I want to thank you for your work on the versions of 360Chrome that you targeted. Having experimented with your final releases from January for the last few months, at this point I can say with tremendous confidence that you got them as close to perfect as possible. It's interesting to compare the differences between 11/12/13.x...on my Pentium D, 11 absolutely smokes the others as far as speed goes but is the weakest of the bunch in web compatibility, 12 balances speed/compatibility quite well and 13.x is extremely compatible while not being as fast (of course, on more powerful hardware, the speed gap becomes less apparent). You can count me among the 11 users, and I use it on a daily basis now; while I was using 13.x for a while for 'future-proofing' purposes, the majority of websites still work great in 11 (and run significantly faster there than in 12 and 13.x). Without any doubt, you earned the right to take some time for yourself (after all, you were doing this in your free time anyway), but I'm very thankful for your efforts in making it possible for us to have some great, telemetry-free modern Chromium browsers in XP. To Draker and anyone else who may be wondering "when is he going to release a new version?", I say to you that this man has no obligation to do a thing for you, me, or any others in this forum. This was a project pursued with personal passion and interest in mind, and it's a fortunate bonus that we have all been able to reap the benefits as he was kind enough to share his mods (which he put a significant amount of effort into, over a long period of time) with all of us. There's nothing ruling out a comeback, and I'm sure if he finds something that interests him as much if not more than 360 11/12/13.x did, he might be willing to do some more work, at least in his free time for his personal use. If he shares any of it with us, we can count it as a bonus too. Thank you very much, @NotHereToPlayGames!

  25. It is possible to install the POSReady patches without using the registry hack - I have never applied the registry change and have installed all of the POSReady KBs. It's worth mentioning that you can extract an XP kb file using its /x switch ... kb4019276.exe /x:"c:\kb4019276". To apply the patch you can simply execute update.exe in the update folder. It is that update.exe that you need to replace and the update_SP3QFE.inf that needs changing. I have a version of a modified update.exe but I don't think it is allowed to post hacked Microsoft files. There is a how to mod your own starting here (I never did this, I downloaded my version many years ago): https://msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/page/4/#comment-1078363 I have always done it this way (starting from before the registry hack was known). Ben.

  26. I won't bother addressing your points. It's clear that you're a conflicting individual who's always looking for a fight, always dismissing or putting down others unless they speak exactly how you want to hear them. Impossible to converse with you like with a normal person. You're not worth my time.

  27. I don't like extremists on either side! Rather than "believe" anything another on the internet or something tells me, I'd much rather rely on my own instinct on what is right and what is wrong. Only thing that has gotten me this far, I learned early on to trust nobody but yourself, otherwise just a puppets on strings and I'm a lot of things but not that. I know you're a good person, Draker. and I don't have the energy to protest for any cause at this point, so, I have no choice but to go with the flow, I guess. **leaving the thread for good - bye bye**

  29. Oh, I just really liked the quote from George and up-voted it. I know, under some Communist regimes the mentally ill were killed off, as well as other things they deemed to be defective or harmful to their "cause". Yeah, at least, here, I"m able to live on my own and sustain a (somewhat) independent existence , but, sadly (and I hate to say it), some of those programs we have could go away if the pendulum swings too far to the right. Please don't assume I'm far left, I'm not, just trying to survive and need assistance (some social programs) and I don't think the govt taking care of the ill is socialism. Sorry ;( So, yes, better here than other horrible place and I'm just barely getting by and live a VERY humble lifestyle if I can even call this "living". Day-by-day and moment-by-moment is it. EDIT: Sorry, had to correct all my typos.

  33. @dmiranda you'll like this one, very good IMO. I've uploaded my song and changed the pitch, key, speed, tempo, everything and exported again into an mp3 (which further squashed it). You can see its in the green and the level is where you should be, otherwise, you're in overdrive territory. Have fun recording those old cassettes of a time when we were young and fearless and hot stuff (if I do presume so). Yeah, that might be stretching the truth a bit in my case, but now I'm a broken down old horse that lost the Kentucky Derby. Oh well, they crazy kids got nothin' on us

  34. Hi Dave and hope all is well. Actually, I have 4 walkman cassettes players and a phonograph only with headphone jacks as output. I've only done it that way - from headphone to either microphone or aux in. @dmiranda mentioned walkman cassette players that usually only come with headphone jacks. But I realized after reading your posting that I should've mentioned the level of amplification from the source going into the sound card could actually cause damage. That is the good thing about Audacity 2.1.0 You need to keep the volume very low on the headphone output and keep the computer volume and open up the input volume levels up to the max. Not only do you not want to input to see blue in huge (distortion city) but when the input source shows up in RED, its too loud; in fact, I keep it very low and increase afterwards at the end. Should look like this: And when done, you can select Amplify if you need to, but I use mp3gain to do that. I'm going to find a way to send to a upload server the Pennsylvania Polka (don't worry, public domain) and see what you think as it came from a scratchy 45 record and I worked to improve it as best as could. I'll let you know when I figure out what would be best. Again, as Dave pointed out, feeding headphones or amplification to your computer can cause damage so start very low in the volume with your computer input (either microphone or aux in) all the way up so you won't wind up in the red. Try it and let us know which version Of Audacity you chose. 2.1.0 has a good mix of features, whereas below its very basic, but above 2.1.0 and its not very stable on XP and crashes on my systems. Good luck :

  36. I'm recreating the old IE5.5 support download site as the IE6 support site for as many languages as possible. Why do I do this? Micro$oft removed the servers for these browsers, even though they don't serve their purpose today they are still necessary components of Windows 9x/NT/2000 and XP. The intention is to facilitate the user of the Legacy version of Windows who needs to update Internet Explorer and has an Internet connection on his Windows 9x/NT/2000 machine, as well as for those who do not have installations in English and want to have it in their respective language. This site works for its purpose in IE 4 and up but the layout is better in IE 5 and up as I had to switch from tables to divs to give newer browsers a bit of priority. IE5.5; http://ie55browserforbetter.tk At the moment it is only available for English, Spanish and German. But soon there will be the French and Korean version.

With Total Cookie Protection enabled by default, other such extensions are unnecessary: https://blog.mozilla.org/en/products/firefox/firefox-rolls-out-total-cookie-protection-by-default-to-all-users-worldwide/ It is interesting to consider that even in chrome-based browsers you can get the same.

  41. As Paul Harvey might have said, "the rest of the story." You'd think Amwater's banner would at least tell you that Win XP or Vista was no longer supported, rather than telling you to "update" your browser to a version older than the one you're running! But they probably don't care, as long as those "evil" XPers are kept out of their site. But that leaves me wondering: Why is NM 28 allowed, even though its default UA would reveal the same evil Windows version? I guess some mysteries will never be solved. So PM 30 was sort of their Windows 8! "Whoops, this was a hot mess; better clean things up with a new version ASAP." PM 29's life cycle seemed short, but perhaps that's because I was "spoiled" by PM 28's long life cycle, and/or because PM 29's subversion numbers only got up to 4, making it seem shorter. The Covid pandemic may have warped my perception of time as well. I might have compromised and increased NM's subversion number to 17 from 10 by now, maximizing compatibility with PM add-ons while avoiding the pitfalls with legacy FF ones. But it's not my project, and I'm sure Roytam1 has other reasons to stick to 28.10. NM isn't even my main browser, so my interest is mostly academic anyway.

  42. The "iheart" URls referenced by @Art7220 fail to load fully in latest UXP browsers not because the platform (UXP) lacks support for Optional Chaining ("?.") and Nullish Coalescing ("??") operators, but because of lack of support for ECMAScript2018 RegExp features (e.g. "Named Captured Groups"); this is being demonstrated by the WebConsole error @UCyborg already posted, that one gets by trying to load either of https://v1011sacramento.iheart.com https://thenew1079.iheart.com in latest NM28/St52 Latest NM28 DOES NOT need extra polyfills for ("?.") and ("??"), as they are supported natively... The "core-js" project I linked to contains a bucketload of recent JS polyfills, but I have not taken the time myself to properly index exactly what (and I wish JSDelivr provided an easy way to just fetch ONLY the core-js polyfills one needs, instead of the whole core-js-bundle, but I couldn't figure it out myself ) ... NB that VM is a WE, so not supported in NM28; your UserScript Manager choice there boils down to Greasemonkey for Pale Moon, currently an abandonware ... 360EEv11 loads the "iHeart URIs" natively (which is yet another indication of how badly UXP fares in WebCompat ), so I had no need to use additional polyfills there for these... I suspect the real question is: "Can I use your userscript to "pay my water bills" in 360EEv11?" The answer is probably NOT (but you'd have to try it yourself...).

  43. It has been more than a year since Windows Update v6 for XP was put into an infinite redirect loop by Microsoft. It has also almost been two years since the update servers for XP were discontinued. Without the efforts of @maile3241, Windows Update v6 for XP would have never seen the light of day again. Now we can use v6 normally again on XP and are working to making v5, v4 and v3 working again as well. Now is a good time to archive v6, since it is still on Microsoft servers.

  46. Where exactly did I ask that question ? All I wrote was just informing there were several new releases available . I totally understand you don't need new though , being on a Pentium D. As for no obligation , I might somewhat disagree . Even though I understand there are no direct obligations , we still help each other no matter what. This is what this forum is for . For example , I'd gladly help you or anyone else whenever needed. Perhaps even if I'm busy.

  47. The latest version of putty (https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html) does not run in XP. However, it works applying patchPE to the exes. Except for pageant, that in this latest and the previous version generates an error.
