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.

Re: Random Status Updates
I don't know how I missed this considering I'm here darn near everyday...

Still sorting out some life problems, put some files on a drive and set them to team members with lil' internet. We found there was an update to one of the
Glide wrappers for Tachyon so we tweaked that recently. Got Tach added to Evolve as an alternative to Tungle. Working on taxes and moving...

Re: Random Status Updates
I really don't know how these random posts manage to get past me when I visit every day.

Status update, cuz everyone else is doing it.

Razorkiss (that other co-founder guy) is changing jobs so looking at being more stable to be able to work on the project again.
Raz was more of the overall organized one cracking the whip so it'd probably be beneficial.

My situation has been bad for years, finally thought I'd bounced off the bottom. Went through bankruptcy, saved my car, planned to surrender my house. Had a plan, looked good.
Then had a family member totally nuke my plan. So I'm trying to find work so I can get an apartment or co-rent someplace. Was taking care of said family member with a terminal illness
which led to a lot of hospital stays, led to me rejecting work to take care of them. So no work history = no good way of getting a rental, plus almost broke. I joined myself to the family member
to try to help their finances and the bankruptcy of course affected both.

So long story short, everything on my end is in boxes. Once I get someplace I can unpack and try to setup shop again.

Z64 and DahBlount are working here and there, also dealing with college.

So more or less we're trying to pull away from the black hole, look at new tech and see about retooling for when we kick back into gear. We'll have been on this project 12 years in September. Longer than Duke Nukem Forever I believe.

Re: Random Status Updates
*crossing fingers*

I may have the lobby patch working again, meaning online games in the original Tachyon, which have been broke for close to two years would be possible again.
Have to run a couple more tests with more people, but it's further along than previous.
