    Ive reported this to @makus in the "current status" thread already. It may be an admin has changed an option or today's builds failed again...

    Are you guys sure that you've clicked a green build? I got this problems myself, due to being a bit of a retard and not reading the download instructions

    Thank-you, downloaded and testing again now. Already updated a few bugs to tracker within a minute or two of playing 0.1-83 ;)

    Yeah, hopefully this should be fixed - there were 2 issues, first, for some reason it unlinked itself from github (I couldn't figure out how to re-add it without deleting/recreating the appveyor project, hence the changed URL, but it's a nicer one anyway as last time I created my 'personal' dev appveyor project first, so that got the "openapoc" name, while the upstream OpenApoc repostory itself had to add some random letters).

    Second, the builds then started failing as the upload of the completed .zip files errored out.

    I spoke to appveyor and this was caused by a recently introduced cap on how much data you can store (1gb - which is fair enough, as they are giving it out for free, and previously I dread to think how much space was wasted on ancient builds nobody cared about :) - and we hit this cap, causing the failures to upload. They have (rather generously) since boosted us to 10gb to keep all the artifacts in, which is great, but at ~30mb/build, times two for 32/64 bit, multiplied by all revisions/branches/PRs, it'll still mean we'll likely hit the limits again.

    So I'll probably be occasionally trimming old builds - you can still pull that exact revision from git and build it locally, but you'll need to install visual studio (the free community edition is fine) to do that - and you should get _exactly_ the same build out the other side.

    I'm also probably going to drop 32-bit builds (*everyone* should have a 64-bit capable PC these days, we can re-enable it for non-testing releases just in case though), which instantly halves the size of each build, and probably compress using 7zip instead of vanilla .zip to shave a few more megabytes off the dev releases.

    I assume that the sort of people willing to run development releases and test things this won't be an issue - though I thought I'd mention it as a heads up anyway.
