Evidently a person found the lobby, so I'll see about making a patch soonish.

I checked for months... of course it pops up after I stopped looking.

Greetings Space Scallywags.

As we bring 2014 to a close, we were made aware that Novalogic got their lobby
back online. As such we've rererere-released a server IP patch so everyone can
play again.

Lobby Patch Link -  http://files.fringespace.org/fs/Tachyon_Host_Patch_2p4.zip

We also updated the No Environment Effects mod, which was in need of some fixing
for a while as well. Note that if you're using Win XP, the default install location
used by this patch is now set for 64 bit Vista and later. You'll need to pick the
location yourself when it gives you that option if you still run XP.

Example:
Win Vista/7/8 - C:\Program Files (x86)\NovaLogic\Tachyon
Win XP - C:\Program Files\NovaLogic\Tachyon

No Environment Effects -  http://files.fringespace.org/fs/No_Environment_Effects_2p4.exe

Both of these are of course in the Downloads section here on the site.

As a smaller update, the bandwidth on the FringeSpace game server was probably
adequate before, but it has been increased 5x now. So there shouldn't be a problem
on our end.

We hope to have some more good news for you after the new year.

Hey I'm still alive, and around!

I downloaded those new patches above, fyi,
I still have EVERYTHING, I was the one person who made it a point to be an archive of all the old stuff, patches, updates, maps, you name it...
collecting and saving everything as I went, and I still have it all to this day.

What I have not done lately, as in a few years, is play the game!
I still have my joysticks and I keep them protected, as they are my prized possessions!

It is nice to know that Novalogic has reopened the lobby page!

I can't remember the name of that game company that had Tachyon as part of their package?
What happened? Did they lose their contract or something? Something expire?
How did NL get the lobby going again?

Im hoping all is well with everyone, and my hats off to you guys who are hard at work on the new FS project!
The screenshots look AWESOME

Say Hi to Razors Kiss for me? heh  :P  he LOVES me !  :banghead: hahahahaha ahh the memories.... :))

I imagine the way the server got working was they replaced the hamster that runs the flywheel powering the PSU.

Not particularly anything new I'm afraid. We've got some stuff being added on the back end to help
us better track where we are and what needs doing still. But nothing "forward facing" that we can show off.

Re: Random Status Updates
Been a while since we stuck anything in here, thought it was high time for at least an update.

In the last 20 days our web host Dreamhost whom we've been running off of since prior to 2006, basically tried to delete our FTP space. We ended up pitching a fit and got enough time to
suck all the files off and make a couple backups. This also pertains to the SVNs we were running. So we're looking at maybe moving to Github.

 
There's a possibility that Razor may come off the road (travels a lot) to spend some time reorganizing. I'm stuck in the midst of my father's bankruptcy where he signed my name to 14 accounts
so he's taking everyone and everything down with him, on top of being a later stage parkinson's patient that needs full time care.

Both Razor and I agree that we want to see the mod through to completion, we're just in tough personal situations that we've been fighting for a number of years, and that's coming to a head.

Z64 is still working on things here and there along with DahBlount chipping in ideas.  Model work is stalled for the moment.

Ideally, I would say going forward as much as the FTP removal was kick in the nuts, it's also long overdue to comb through all our file sets and make a new master copy with current SCP files.
Back at the peak of the mod we had 20 people working concurrently, more typically that's been like 3-4. But that's been a wide variety of people that boxed up what they did and just left it on our FTP,
so it's time for a reorganization and cleaning house.

There's the news.  I've checked on THQ Nordic, nothing out of them at all since the purchase. Haven't been able to raise Devil'sClaw to get his patch for multiplayer to be working again.
