I played a ton of command and conquer back in the day. Firestorm, red alert 3, and renegade. At some point I heard about westwood studios had made this new online space game. It took my 56k internet something like 3 or 4 days to download the 600mb game. I still remember the awe of first logging in and having this massive game to explore. I remember being TERRIFED to go through the gate from Jupiter to Saturn. Anyways, EnB was my first ever MMO when I was about 13 and I played it up till they announced sunset. Being 14 and using my own money on the subscription, I didn't want to spend my time and money playing a game anymore that I knew was about to be shutdown in a couple months.
I was originally Ghostwing, lvl 150 Jenquai Defender. I joined the Disciples of Rebellion guild for most of my time in EnB. I Played with some of those same players on EVE Online when EnB shut down.
I've played the Emulator off and on over the years. I remember when there wasn't much you could do besides fly around the asteroid belt sectors. Combat and loot tables didn't exist yet. (I think it was originally written in java, then that was scrapped and re-written in C++) I even had access to the source code myself at one point, but I was new to programming (still in school) and never had the time or knowledge to contribute anything.
I recently got the ENB itch back and game here to find out the servers have been the victim of some sort of attack and are still down. I hope they are back up soon and If there is anything I can help with i'd be willing to see what I can do.
