He does. His store is still in RMP. He was posting comments here in November.

The site, at least, is backed up by the Wayback Machine.  Hope he's all right.

Cage can be an opinionated jerk who posts without thinking.  He apologizes for this.  He's honestly not trying to be a turkeyhead.

Cage has freebies.  He would like to thank EnglishBob for hosting these.

Thanks for the link Cage.  Not sure why I didn't think of the Web Archive myself, as I've often done so when I can't find something anymore.

I seem to recall BB using Google Sites. There was a thing about them switching to a different system and site owners needing to "port" their pages to it. Judging from my personal experience porting seems to translate to more or less redoing from scratch because the automatic conversion Google does is not very useful. Could be related to that somehow.

Has someone tried to summon him? I hear gamma correcting an image five times in front of a mirror does the trick? 😄

Yes, he uses Google Sites, so that may very well be the issue, and he may very well not even be aware of what's happened.

The Wayback Machine tells you what was there, but doesn't appear to give the ZIP files.

The LoadFishes.py script is safe as a freebie on ShareCG.

Nonsense. This is the second time this week you've made statements that are false. First stating that utilizing high resolution shadow maps with OpenGL preview will cause Poser to crash when switching to Firefly renderer and now this...

I just downloaded 2 items from Cage's Wayback link, from my tablet no less, and the downloads are intact. Please check your facts, do not assume you are correct just because something doesn't work for you.

It works for me, it just takes awhile. If I click on the download link, I'm sent to a HTTP 302 page. If I wait, I'm redirected to the zip file and it downloads.

If you have redirects blocked, it won't work.

1) "First stating that utilizing high resolution shadow maps with OpenGL preview will cause Poser to crash when switching to Firefly renderer"

This statement was not false. A crash is a crash. 4096 Preview shadows maps - on a scene that is also then rendered with Firefly - always crash Poser for me. Brian Haberlin is also on record in a webinar saying exactly the same thing some years back ("every damn time" or words to that effect). Sure there may be workarounds with a better PC, and maybe it's even a bug that's since been fixed since then in Poser.

2) "I just downloaded 2 items from Cage's Wayback link, from my tablet no less, and the downloads are intact. Please check your facts, do not assume you are correct just because something doesn't work for you."

This statement was not false. A non-download is a non-download. Sure there may be workarounds, but I'm using a Chrome-based browser which you suggest above - and they don't download for me. But, it's great to know they're available that way for some.  Which is the point of this thread I think.

Using Brave, a Chrome-based browser: download works, I just needed to wait for the redirection to take place. Zip file tested: valid.

This is just what I experienced.  It took about 30 seconds to do the redirection, and then I saved, did antiviral and malware checks, and then opened each of the 5 items I downloaded, and all were intact.

I don't, however, "knowingly" using anything Google, so Chrome is out of the question for me.

I just used my latest version of Firefox, and am glad it worked fine.  😀

You have to click on the File Cabinet link in the Navigation column on the left.  That's where he has/had all his zip files.  It's about the 5th from the top of that page.

Hi people. Yes Google sites forced a conversion and mine didn't work and I just completely forgot about it. Now it's gone.

I can probably recover the most important things over time. Also I bet tons of items are still in the hands of various active rendo users.

Shall we rebuild, possibly better, like when your house burns down? LOL



Renderosity forum reply notifications are wonky. If I read a follow-up in a thread, but I don't myself reply, then notifications no longer happen AT ALL on that thread. So if I seem to be ignoring a question, that's why. (Updated September 23, 2019)

I could see pretty much all of your goodies on the Wayback Machine's Web Archive, so that may be the best bet for you to recover all, or at least most, of your goodies.  You just may have to try more than one browser to access the zips, as folks stated above they were having issues depending on the browser they were using.

I wonder if Google sites are similar to WIX?  I was with WIX for years until they got money hungry and with my limited budget these days I had to find another place to be but had to redo the site from scratch but I'm really happy with how it turned out so not  a waste of time.  Like it even better actually.  WIX has proprietary software to create your website with but little did I know that I would run into this issue when it came time to find a new home for RAMWolff's World.
