Our next focus is to refund people who have purchased the $9.95 update. If you purchased the $9.95 update and were eligable to receive the upgrade you will get a full refund. If you were not eligible, you will receive a $4 discount. Once the discounts have been done, you should receive and email and I will post here when the entire batch is done.

If you believe that you due a free keycode. Rules are set here:
https://www.feldoncentral.com/forums...6&postcount=53

Please contact technical support and they will search our database and issue a code to you. Please be patient. Tech support is working hard to keep up with demand and it takes time to go through everything.  
OK, maybe someone can help me make sense of all this. I sent in my email address to the form listed here and these are the two products that are listed in the email I received:

Order Number
MATPC-US-[numbers and code removed]
MA2UPGPC-US-[numbers and code removed]

IS the second one there a 2.6 code? I was a .99 series purchaser way back before Prolific was involved.

Thanks.

EDIT: Just tried both keys, neither works on 2.6. DO I need to send in a support request or do I just need to wait a little longer? I'm willing to do whatever is easiest. Not in a big rush.

This is my first post though I have followed the forum for a while. Typing is difficult for me due to a spinal injury but I did want to make the effort to say that I received the notification for a full refund of my $9.95 and am very grateful.
Though there may have been stumbles at times, I believe all involved have made an admirable effort to rectify any problems. Thanks for your efforts, and thanks, Jim, for a remarkable product.
Thanks also, Morgan and Michael, for making the forum available.

I've requested the keycodes three times without result. A fourth time gave me the code for version 2.6 yesterday.

Just hold on and retry is my best advice.

Good luck!

If you have a widescreen (16:9) monitor, you can do 8 fish.
If you have a regular (4:3) monitor, you can set the Aquarium to Widescreen and you will get black bars at the top and bottom.

The widescreen version will let you use 8 fish at one time instead of seven. Hit the space bar and check the settings, ( count the fish spaces ). You should have the ability to choose 8 now.

You're in the same boat I'm in. I believe that since the freebie keys have been generated that you need to contact tech support like I did. I'm still waiting to hear a response, but figure I'll give them a week to catch up before I bug them again.

Seems as if it takes about a week to get a free upgrade...if i had to pay for this then I would be more concerned. However, in my opinion, it would have made more sense to have the upgrade policy thought out well before the 2.6 software was released, and the keycodes pre-generated for most people. Also, perhaps temporary key codes could have been generated -- i.e. codes that expire in 2-4 weeks, given to anyone who says they are entitled to the free upgrade while customer service checks it out. I am confident that 99.999% of people who claim they are entitled to the upgrade based upon the conditions outlined here would be honest....I look foward to seeing what happens when the 3D background is introduced....

Yes, click the checkbox in the Settings menu called: "Use Widescreen".

Yep. You need to run it in Widescreen mode with the wider background. Eight fish get too crowded in 4:3 mode. check your settings screen.

Edit: Sorry 'bout that. I missesd the last page when replying.
Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Jrvaflt" as the latest addition Go have a look and tell me what you think.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

Thumbs Down

I just got email from tech support with a keycode for version 2.6. Only one email to them asking for the free keycode and a few days later I get the keycode. Very nice! I knew they'd come through.
