That's not a link to t3 file despite t3 extension at the end of URL, but rather a link to HTML page with a description of the file. If you want to link to the file, you need to link to https://github.com/Otto73/TADS3/blob/1. ... 3?raw=true URL, but unfortunately TADS launcher does not support HTTPS protocol, you need to host your file somewhere it is accessible over plain HTTP.

That's not valid URL of game file, it just redirects to login page, probably it's not shared publicly.

Many thanks -

I'm now able to run the game through gs.tads.io. I wasn't aware that I needed to add ?raw=true to link to the actual file. I still can't launch it from Github, but it runs fine from http://ottocondliffe.000webhostapp.com/ ... 3?raw=true. The site is set up for https:, but it seems to work fine just changing the address to http:

I tried linking to the released file (and encoding the url), but now when i try to run the file from Github, I get the following:


Error
A network error occurred retrieving the story file.
Try again

That's not a URL to a t3 file. That's a link to an HTML page. You need a link to the actual t3 file. Try this:

https://github.com/Otto73/TADS3/blob/1. ... 3?raw=true

Thanks - however, when I try to run the game from the address above, I get the same error:

Error
A network error occurred retrieving the story file.
Try again
Error details: Story file location: http://github.com/Otto73/TADS3/blob/1.0 ... 3?raw=true
HTTP error: 301 Moved Permanently

I can only guess this is something related to Github itself, as the file runs fine from http://ottocondliffe.000webhostapp.com/ ... 3?raw=true

That's because it's redirecting to HTTPS.

That gs.tads.io doesn't support HTTPS should be considered a bug.

You could use Github pages which doesn't require you to use HTTPS.
