    Default Train Sim Modeler no longer available from Louis Sinclair

    Hi,
    It has been brought to my attention that Louis Sinclair's website is no longer 'live'. I have tried contacting him via email but as his address was linked to his website, it's also no longer available.

    There is a Facebook account in the name of Rundio Sinclair which looks as if it may be 'our' Louis, but I won't be joining Facebook just to find out! Maybe someone who's already a Facebook member could help me obtain his email address, if it is Louis (send me a PM please).

    If I am able to contact him, I'll be seeking permission to upload TSM here.

    TSM was 'taken over' by a third party, but, although it still appears to be available from there, you may not wish to use that website!

    Cheers,
    Ged

    I know, Dave, but I thought it better to put it in its own thread so that I, and others, could find it easily.

    Cheers,

    I don't understand why you all hate him so much. He supported TSRE development with good donation and he shared TSM sources with me. I see no risk downloading these apps from his site.
    You should love all people regardless of their sins.

    You missed all that drama, Goku. He blew every shred of trust that was afforded him, and he went after individuals financially and professionally.

    He bought stuff and filed chargeback requests with PayPal and other credit card payment providers saying he never got the goods. Not only did het get a a refund for things he downloaded, but the payment providers also fine the merchant in most cases.

    He filed a false claim with ICANN that shut down my professional web domain (totally unrelated to train sim development) and intentionally tried to damage my professional reputation. He tried to do the same to Elvas Tower.

    There are other examples that I won't bother going into here because it's a moot point. He's expelled, and not coming back aside from the occasional attempt using a fake name that eventually gets banned as well when we figure it out...

    We can disagree on things here in a civil manner, but once someone pursues another forum member in the real world, there are going to be consequences.

    I'm glad you took his money.

    He probably tried to reverse engineer your work and re-sell it, but I doubt he's that good of a developer. He's good at analyzing existing data structures and finding how they interact, but I can't think of anything he ever contributed that he designed from scratch.

    I have send him TSRE source code with license to modify and redistribute it even before it went open source, but indeed it is very difficult software to understand.
