Another Tachyon Mod Released
This time we've got the Visual Enhancements Mod...

http://www.fringespace.org/index.php?name=Downloads&req=viewdownloaddetails&lid=27

This is made up of 2 options to add either basic widescreen and higher resolution
monitor support, or various graphical improvements to your existing Tachyon setup.

Read the included Read Me if you want to know how to install and configure it.
It is NOT compatible with the previous No Environment Effects pack.

I couldn't really get proper dedicated testers besides myself, so as I said on the Tach
Facebook group, don't blame me if your computer erupts in a volcano or starts to spawn
cat girls everywhere.


Enjoy.   (the mod, not the volcano cat girls... )  :p

Re: Another Tachyon Mod Released
Are there any HL backups of this mod? It's not available through Fringespace anymore.

Re: Another Tachyon Mod Released
HL does not host anything but the forum here.  FringeSpace is still around, we've been giving out the files through our Discord server.
Our web host company after 11 some odd years pitched a fit all of a sudden and deleted our FTP directory, which included all the files on the website download space.
Wasn't an infringement or whatever notice, they just felt we used too much of their space for an unlimited account (yeaaaaah makes so much sense).

In any case, we got a stay of execution long enough to make one final backup of the whole project and site directory, I just haven't had the time to figure out where and reupload everything.
The Tachyon downloads doesn't take up all that much space, probably under 100 MB I guess, but the project files and SVN is a lot of GBs. Bought a NAS expansion just so I could make a RAID backup of it all.
So we've been handing it out over Discord as of late.

Perhaps you might link to your Discord? I don't see an obvious link to it anywhere.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Re: Another Tachyon Mod Released
I will make a super obvious sticky thread in this sub forum.
