Horror of Horrors, Neko98 nearly lost!

Building Neko

It came to my attention that the site in.sert.co.in no longer exists! And worse, that the files on the page are long gone.  Thankfully the internet archive did snag A page from there, but the downloads are all gone!

Thankfully I have a 1TB disk (lol so small now!) and I downloaded the source code, so all is not lost.  I don’t know why I didn’t mirror it before but there you go.  For all the diehard neko fans download the source, and keep hold of it….!

So that being said, I fired up Visual Studio 97 (I knew buying that was a good idea!) and built an i386 Win32 version…  I also rescued the cat sounds, but no luck on the rest of the files.

So once more again, neko has been saved!

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

      • I also have a whole bunch of the neko98 files saved on my computer. Let me know if you want them. I want to install neko on my windows 7 laptop just for nostalgia sake LOL.

      • You know may be worth it just to mirror them.

        I just noticed that cd.textfiles.com is back online, they may have it as well.

  1. Hey neozeed, are there any tutorials on how to create your own Neko? I tried it myself, but all of the animations were mixed up, even though I named the .ico files what they should be. :-\

    • I would suspect an icon editor, or a bitmap editor… I actually never really tore neko apart, it was more a ‘oh wow some source, I wonder if it’ll recompile to 64bit?’ type thing.

      I know I’m really bad about hit & run projects, but there is just so many interesting things out there, and so little time… lol

    • Yes the old icon libs don’t work, actually I’ve never really looked into it.

      You need to check the ‘always on top’ option to get Neko to draw correctly. I did recently re-compile Neko with Visual Studio 2015, although I ran into some issues with dragging Neko which caused it to crash. Although I’m unsure if it’s ever worked going to these newer versions.

      I should make an installer, and all that jazz.
