Note: Noctis IV CE and the Noctis IV CE Starmap are unsupported!
We thank everyone who has supported the Noctis IV CE project over the years. For a more supported version of Noctis, try Noctis IV Plus


Latest releases of NICE/NIV+:
Noctis IV CE R11.6a
Noctis IV Plus 2.1
This thread is just a place for Megagun and I to post JUST the downloads for NICE. For discussion about NICE, bugs in it, etc, see the Known Noctis IV Bugs, and NICE (Noctis IV CE) discussion thread. We'll make a new post here whenever a new release is made, so just go to the last post in the thread to find the latest release. (That way if our accounts get eaten again we don't have to worry that we can't edit the first post anymore)

Old versions may be deleted to save cdisk space.

There are usually three downloads for each release: Full, Update, and the (full) source.

The 'Update' package includes changed EXEs and docs only, and must be extracted into an existing Noctis folder.
The 'Full' package contains everything you need to run NIV, including docs, etc.
The 'Source'/'Src' package contains the NIV source and the various source-related documentation files.

If you encounter any problems, please post about them in the Known Noctis IV Bugs thread.

Patches for the LATEST VERSION can be found inside the patches repository. Patches starting with 'opt-' should be optional (as in: they add a feature of some sort that needs testing, or could be of interest to people). 'Newer' optional patches might NOT contain some things the older ones have, but they might have some additional bugfixes.

Release 5a

Full: <cd/zips/Sl/fixactis-bin-full-r5a>
Update: <cd/zips/Sl/fixactis-bin-update-r5a>
Source: Full: <cd/zips/Sl/fixactis-src-r5a>

Release 6

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-bin-full-r6>
Update: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-bin-update-r6>
Source:
<cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-src-r6>

These zips each hold self-extracting exes (made with 7zip), which cuts down on the download size (as opposed to if it were just zipped - the full would be 2.76 MB, the update 1.76 MB, and the source 633 KB if just zipped).

Release 6a

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-bin-full-r6a>
Update: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-bin-update-r6a>
Source: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-src-r6a>

These don't include mega's latest modifications yet - these are mostly modifications to Go! (There are two now), and also reorganizations of parts of the source to help a little with memory issues (Just moving the new functions we made into a new noctis-2 group of code). So there isn't a lot of difference between R6a and R6, but it might be useful for some people. Also, Mega made hacirc work a little better with irc servers other than SC's.

These zips also each hold self-extracting exes (made with 7zip), which cuts down on the download size (as opposed to if it were just zipped).

Update: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-bin-update-r6b>
Source: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/fixactis-src-r6b>

These zips each hold self-extracting exes (made with 7zip), which cuts down on the download size (as opposed to if it were just zipped).

I should probably change the filenames and such to 'nice' at some point .

Even though this isn't really an update.. You all might like it:
<cd/zips/megagun/fixactis_jetpack_manual>
Yup, you're right! It's the Jetpack Manual!

Have fun.

Edit by Megagun:
Serpens has been nice to re-upload release 7a somewhere else (since it had been removed from the C-disk --> broken link!):
Serpens said:
I found NICE 7a on my computer, so that Megagun doesn't have to bother. Here is the link:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/y93o2t
I removed guide.bin and starmap.bin, because they were contaminated with my own notes and names. You'll need to copy there your own GUIDE and Starmap. The picture gallery is also clean. Hopefully it will work.
Thanks, Serpens!
(Note: this link might not work anymore, someday!)

Release 9 (Finally)

WARNING: There is a crash/freeze bug on planet surfaces in R9. So far it's been difficult to track down, which is why there hasn't been a new release yet with it fixed. If you find it annoying (you probably will), you may want to use R8.5 in the meantime.

Changes:

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-full-r9>
Update: There is no update package for this release because almost every file has changed.
Source: cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-src-r9 (596 Kb)

Hacirc is NOT included in the R9 package, because it hasn't changed and most of you already have it. And because it's really big. If you don't have it, you can get it here:
Hacirc: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/hacirc>

Release 9a

This is a bugfix release. The crash/freezing which happened in R9 appears to happen far less often now, but it does still happen. It turned out there were several crash/freeze bugs, and although most of them seem to be gone now, there's still at least one one left. This is being released even though it still crashes because it's still less crashy than R9.

Changes:

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-full-r9a>
Update: The update should only be applied to R9. If you try to apply it to normal Noctis or an older NICE version, it will almost certainly not work right. <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-update-r9a>
Source: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-src-r9a>

If you want Hacirc and don't have it yet, it's here (It hasn't changed): <cd/zips/Shadowlord/hacirc>

These zips each hold self-extracting exes (made with 7zip), which cuts down on the download size (as opposed to if it were just zipped).


Edit: We do have one report of weirdness now, but I'll leave the download up for now while it's investigated:
Bensel on IRC said:
<Bensel> I've seen everything from hoppers smaller than my toe to hoppers I can see standing on mountains hundreds of yards away.
<Bensel> And a nifty "wind effect" to top it off.
<Bensel> As well as the fact that critters float ten feet off the ground.

Release 9b

This is another bugfix release.

Changes:

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-full-r9b>
Update: The update should only be applied to R9 or R9a. If you try to apply it to normal Noctis or an older NICE version, it will almost certainly not work right. <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-update-r9b>
Source: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-src-r9b>

Release 9c

NOTE: It looks like there's some slowdown in R9c which isn't in R9b. Looking into it, but very little has changed. Hm.

Changes:

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-full-r9c>
Update: The update should only be applied to R9 or newer. If you try to apply it to normal Noctis or an older NICE version, it will almost certainly not work right. <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-update-r9c>
Source: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-src-r9c>

Look on the last page in the thread to find the latest version.

Full: <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-full-r9d>
Update: The update should only be applied to R9 or newer. If you try to apply it to normal Noctis or an older NICE version, it will almost certainly not work right. <cd/zips/Shadowlord/nice-bin-update-r9d>
