Due to hacking (again!) my JoyPad PlugIn download site is down  >:(

I restored the backup, but it got hacked again a few hours later...

To get it running again, I have to rebuild the site on a clean web server, but
  • There has only been one successful donation during the past couple of years
  • This is a spare time project, no founding except donations
  • It takes time to rebuild and maintain the site
  • Bandwidth, domain and static IP are all expenses
  • I want to keep the plugin free and without adds

Should I rebuild the site and why?

Regards
Joakim

If you rebuild I will commit to a donation - this is a great plugin - (although as indicated I am using version 2.0 as I had issues with 2.0.1)

Cheers

Bruce:
Thank you for your commitment, I really appreciate it!  :)

I think your problem maybe a calibration issue in Windows 10 of the joysticks.
The major fix from version 2.0 to 2.1 is when using Ethernet SmootStepper, if you are using another motion controller, version 2.0 will work just fine.

I will make an announcement here in the forum when (if) the download page comes up again.

Regards
Joakim

Can you put the JoyPad download on Dropbox or similar and post a link?

Through a story of comedy and tears, it has taken me years to get my Logitech F310 gamepad and my *working* CNC router in the same room at the same time, only to find that I didn't have the plugin and cannot download it!

Dropbox or similar file sharing does not provide the ability to present the JoyPad plugin and associated documentation in a good way.
It will also remove the possibility of donations and support for further development.

I'm working on a new home page, but it's volunteer work and therefore takes time. Be patient.

If you have enjoyed JoyPad plugin and would like to support, it can be done at http://joakim.dk - thanks  ;)

Is it possible to get the latest version?  I'm using the Ethernet Smooth Stepper and running into the dead zone issue.
I'm happy to make a donation to get the updated version.

Hi Jokim,

It has been a while now - why has your website not been rebuilt ?
If you wish to keep the plugin free why not post it as a zip file for others to download from here ?
