V.5 Runner added to download page

Post by P/o Prune »

Just to let you know that Campbell has added a separate V.5 Runner to the download page. :bravo:

There are both a right and a wrong download link.

If you click on the ICON for the ADRIFT 5 Runner you get the correct file. (ADRIFT5r.zip)
If you click on the line "ADRIFT 5.0 Runner - File only (4.87Mb)" you get a 10 MB file called ADRIFT5.zip which is NOT just the runner.

P/o Prune, you seem to be good at contacting Campbell. Perhaps you could let him know, so he can fix this?

Seems a bit confusing. I count 10 separate download links. Wouldn't it be easier to just have two - one for v4 and one for v5 - with all the other stuff included by default? (I can't imagine many people are going to want to download v2 or v3.9 these days.)

That's the one…
The problem was that if you wanted to "just" play a V.5 game you had to download the full Adrfit package.
Campbell separated the two so it's now possible to download only the runner.
