I'm still alive.  
Here's an update, if my ftp server is up atm:
ftp://96.239.206.102/starcon/gob.exe (whole package)
ftp://96.239.206.102/starcon/gob.zip (executable only, overwrite the executable in an old install with this)

edit: note the forum software seems to like mangling the URLs.  If you see the URLs prefixed with http:// then you'll have to remove that part, those are ftp URLs.  
edit2: fixed the URL mangling

Server is down. I'd love to stick something on PNF, so I'll keep trying now and then.

The server thinks that it is up.  Which doesn't necessarily mean that it is, but the logs say that two people appear to have downloaded gob.zip, so it probably really has been up at least some.  
edit: do note that the forum is mangling the URLs slightly, you may need to manually de-mangle them. 

So... what ships have people succeeded with?  I've managed Supox, Kohr-Ah, Androsynth, and Arilou with recent versions, and Mycon and Orz with old versions.

Latest version is now up on sourceforge:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gob-tw/

This uses Allegro 4.2.3, and is crashing on exit for me. I may switch to Allegro 4.4 or 5.0 sometime in an attempt to fix that.

Why don't all races have point defense lasers?

Wow, I didn't know this was still updated. Thanks!

I miss some of the old ships... too bad they are not compatible with the newer version.

Does anyone play netmelee with Timewarp?

Pain in the butt, re: Alleg42.dll

It would have been nice if you had included alleg42.dll in the package. When I ran the program, it asked for this file and wouldn't load. It took me quite a while to find the right version, but here it is:
http://static.allegro.cc/file/library/allegro-4.2.3/allegro-mingw-4.2.3.zip

Also, it is a pain that I cannot change the controls. I had to load an older version of Timewarp, set a config, and then copy/paste the contents of scp.ini into GOB's.

Oops.  I'll add the Allgero 4.2 dll to the package real soon now. 
For changing the controls, you can access the main menu with the -menu command line option if desired.

Clearly not. Good lord, did one person design that many ships for Timewarp at all?

Wait, I forgot 2 more ships are not be listed to be added to TimeWarp. My suggestion is add 2 more ships including Borg Cube and Keldon Class Battleship.

OK, for a start basically every star trek ship has the same boring weapons, so you may as well just have one of them and call it a day. Second, these ships have no place in Timewarp at all. It's debatable whether there should even be an Imperial Star Destroyer in P6014 (there was a debate about it and everything). The ships in Timewarp, as far as I understand it, are ships already in Star Control games, even Star Control 3, and original creations specifically for Timewarp. It is not simply a repository for fans of every sci-fi franchise known to man to make a list of every ship they can think of and assume people will make it for them. If this was a less enlightened forum I'd have a few other things to say, but that would be flaming and is bad and wrong.
