Sure, go ahead. I'll transfer them to @jarmonik after I've uploaded them.
I've uploaded the latest versions for Orbiter 2010, 2016 and beta.
It's a quick and dirty upload, but they're available again!

Thanks, I was able to upload a new version using Microsoft Edge but I still have no luck with Firefox. So, the issue seems to be browser specific.

I also had this bitDefender warning form Orbiter2016 version d3d9client.dll like "Gen:Variant.Babar.108092" I suppose it is false?

I can't tell, my software sees nothing there. I once had a payed security suite and it gave me a tons of false alarms. Felt like it was trying to cause panic. Would be good idea for people to make a scan of it to be sure. It's the same package that's been available for a year already. No recompile, no re-zipping.

Code:

forever gone?
Hosting service provider quit providing service. The page could become a live but not in that address. Right now, there's no plant to bring it back.

So I assume it wasn't new "atmospheric" version...

Yes, I understood. It would be good to get some d3d9 release (compiled) at some moment later for OpenOrbiter.
AFAIK, D3D9Client is now integrated into OpenOrbiter, atleast in the d3d9_atmo_remake branch. Some time ago that branch was merged into main

Unfortunately I do not see how to download artifacts from #324 merge pull request (that seems latest). No link.

Oops, I just was logged out of gitHub, but now it's OK. Hm, new atmosphere is really impressive, nothing bad to say.
Only the sun's glare is not perfect (sun also shines through terrain and non-vessel objects), but it seems like a work is in the progress. Interesting when I accelerated time before sunrise, Shuttle Atlantis was suddenly erraticaly got lit by sunlight ON\OFF.

I downloaded the latest release artifact from the orbiter repo on GitHub, then followed the process for installing a working copy of OpenOrbiter, which is

Get a working copy of Orbiter 2016 with all the high res textures

Then extract OpenOrbiter to another folder

Specify the PlanetTex dir in the configuration file

OpenOrbiter runs fine, but whenever I enable the planet surface markers and base and vessel markers, there seems to be a glitch with rendering of vessels in D3D9Client

There is a flickering of reflective surfaces like the solar panels of the ISS, and the retro thruster doors of the DG look inside out. There is also a black shimmering patch on the radiator doors on the back of the DG. If I disable the markers using Alt-F9, the problem goes away
Again enabling the markers causes reappearance of the issue
I have not changed any of the default settings on d3d9.cfg and when markers are disabled everything works as it should

Sorry for asking off-topic question. (I have asked the same question twice but didn't get answer)
@jarmonik Do you plan to re-upload IMFD and LTMFD?

Manual53.pdf says You may not sell or redistribute this software.
A few years ago I wrote IMFD tutorial for Japanese. I'd be grateful if you made them available again.
