SIGS was before WON..... It stood for Sierra Internet Gaming System.

I guess they must have decided they wanted a newer system so they upgraded to WON.... World Opponent Network it means. And that was upgraded thru the update system in the SIGS DLLs.

I never got to use SIGS... by the time I decided to see what it is, they were using WON.

I only played like 2 games on WON.

I played on WON while there would still be 100-150 people on at any one time, sometimes quite a bit more. I remember back in the when you could actually find a good game and that no one would cheat. The WON started falling apart and I would get on and be the only one on for hours at a time.

How many here are from the NHCS? There I was #4, at the end. In first was KevinAr18, he does not post anymore. Ezekel was #2. He doesn't post at this forum if anywhere. The person in third was Betaray, and he is here.
I know this is an old quote, but still.

I posted 1 thread at the NHCS's old UBB (yes, the UBB), under the name "PsycoManiac101". I was probably 9 or 10 at the time.

I talk to Kevin often on AIM now.x


As for WON, I unfortunately started using it when it began to fall apart. I heard that part of the reason it fell apart was because of the use of the "Dan's" cheats. Just a few months after I started using it, it showed the message that the server would be gone on September 2, 2002.
...
OP2 has already been at its peak... it is slowly declining now. :(

lol. Yah, WON. Good times, good times. Even though I only got to play one game, it was still good times. lol.

After that I played a couple modem games with my friend, and that was about it for multiplayer (cuz he got board of it. :'( )

So I would just play the single missions over and over again. Then I cam across this forum a couple of months ago, and I am closer to playing multiplayer. But not much closer though. lol.

And so it goes on... there were many battles between the admins... xfir vs. hacker and levi... Well if you are here you know who won :)
Everything seemed like its going to be smooth but today, the 20th/21th of March, 2005, op.xfir.net, opu.xfir.net and 312productions.xfir.net closes down.
Shortly: xfir - dropped.
Great news for OP2 fans... OP3 in progress.

i don't agree with this whole switch the aadministrators thing.. it's not fair to xfir, who's the one who started this forum, ESPECIALLY since he didn't do nefing, lev and hacker just got power hungry.. and look what they did to poor xfir, oo, this annoys me..

I don't agree either. I think that no one should be backstabbed like that. Xfir trusted Lev and Hacker, and look what they did to him! I don't think they are very trustworthy anymore.

Ok, I'm trying to keep on my mind open on this one.

First of all, there might have been a possibility that it could have been done a little bit more smoothly. But... you have to remember that xfir was already growing tired of running the site and most likely would have deleted it before putting it under the control of another person. I'm really not on anybody's side on this 1 (trying to stay out of the line of fire) but I'll tell you it most likely wouldn't have been as easy as a switch as it was.

I've been in the forums long enough to know that xfir was getting tired of adding and trying new things, editing new posts, and generally looking at all the forums. So it seemed to me as if xfir didn't really care about the forums anymore. Might also have been that xfir's dream of a site had succeed and he just lost a lot of the interest he had before once his dream was “done”.
