The Abandoned addons

Post#1 » Mon Jan 17, 2011 5:48 am

There are many addons with the broken links to the authors.
I search Tachyon addon, but i see only the last patch of it.
This patch need a tahyon.hst to work. I do not know how to create it.
Where can i download the full addon?How can I install it?

So, Where is a shareware version?
Or, may be, i do something wrong. Do not it?

Also, may be the "Taconfig.exe" exist somewhere still?

You can find all the Dan & Dave addon's on the following link.

http://www.circus-maximus.com/ddaddons.htm

These addon's are the full versions and you don't need to patch any of them.

The link to the author on that page also works.

Havok, the link you got me says:
" Tachyon Version: v2.01 Type: Shareware" , 55756 bytes.
The link on Dan&dave page says:
"Tachyon v2.01 - Registered Patch - ta201.zip - 55,756 bytes"
You (http://www.circus-maximus.com/ddaddons.htm) say its shareware, Dan&Dave says its registered patch.
The size of file is the same.

The documentation for tachyon says (addondoc.zip (26 668bytes)):
"Tachyon contains two programs:
TACHYON.EXE
TACONFIG.EXE"

ta201.zip contain tachyon.exe only.

So, where can i find "TACONFIG.EXE" ? I feel completely dumb.
If you say me "this is full patch",then say me how can i install it without "TACONFIG.EXE"? Taconfig.exe must create tachyon.hst -the Tachyon database. Can you send me TACONFIG.EXE or any TACHYON.HST by email?

looks truly, but "403 .Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /files/tachyon.sw.rar on this server."
Can you write me login in the private message?

Hm.. there is no password.
Try manually: http://vgap.net/ -> Downloads -> Host-side Addons

All the copies no matter where you find them are shareware until you register them. After you register the software you will be given a reg file that you will use to patch the addon. This is the way it works for all D&D software items.

I've updated the file to include a version with the taconfig.exe so you should be good to go now. Thanks for pointing out it was missing info. The tachyon.hst is created by the addon after it's successfully run. It's not a file you need at the start.
