Yep, THAT worked—thank you!

Interesting too, that I was able to download the clothing sets. Even though I got the Apollo figure long ago from the same site, I was previously unable to get the gear. I was blocked because I live in Thailand. Not sure why, but several of the file-sharing sites are blocked here. DivShare got through this time, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

Yay! smile

For those who haven’t seen him, here’s a render done in Poser Pro 2012…

I know he works well in Studio 2.3, so I expect he still works in 4.5…

Thanks for the heads up, WandW!  I was in the same boat as Dorseyland - Apollo but no clothes.  Now I have the full set and may actually use him.

Oh, good - the last time the files were available, I got corrupted versions of some of the core zips…

(goes and re-downloads everything)

(er, almost everything)

The links to “Poses for the Ogre”, “Four Poses for Apollo”, “Bonelord Poses”, “MGAPCLOTHESV”, “FD Apollo Textures One”, and “FD Apollo Textures Two” are dead… <sigh>

Been a while since I last used Apollo. Is there anything new? The last time the files were available there was talk of a long-awaited final add-on set. Any chance of this turning up eventually?

His dials and utility poses seem to work better in Poser Pro 2012 than in Daz Studio 4.5. But whenever I use his hide toast pose it creates a hole down there…. I guess he doesn’t use geometry switching like Michael 2.

Nope:  Max is just a “turn visibility off:  the parts are still there” rig.  I used to have him, but he didn’t work too well for me in P6 or D|S 2.x (this was some years back, when he first became free) so I haven’t pursued him since.  Looks good, but ungainly with all but his very own poses.  The scaling functions didn’t seem to be worth jack either.

So glad to see this great figure available again!!  Thanks to Anton for fixing the files and thanks, WandW, for letting everyone know they’re fixed! 

WandW-Nice render!!

Spotted Kitty - I don’t think Anton’s done anything with Apollo for years.  Perhaps one day he’ll come back to the 3d world and continue with the plans he had for Apollo.

Here’s an image I did with him years ago

Wow. I know. Old thread. But I recently went there and stupid DivShare was being an arse. I had lost poor Apollo after my computer decided to have a tantrum.

I know someone who knows Anton, so I sent them a note to pass along. 

DIVShare is sometimes flakey, so in the meantime, try again periodically.

Anton has replied that it is an issue with DIVShare, so check daily and see if it’s been fixed…

Yup. I’ve been doing that. He may wanna switch to a different DL server if DivShare continues being a butt. I haven’t given up yet. I really like the Apollo figure.
