As I noted earlier, about a year ago I had a huge data loss in the TacO codebase that resulted in the wipe of the progress between builds #43 and #47. I did what I could to recreate the code for the open-source release, but I didn't have time to thoroughly test the results.
The releases from yesterday brought to light a couple issues that were lurking in the opensource code, and so today I sat down and went through the old changelogs to test everything once again. In the process a bunch of issues were found and fixed. This new build is the result of this effort.
You can download the new build from here.
- fixed a crash that occurred when the maptimer was querying the GW2 API
- fixed global opacity settings being swapped around
- fixed non-user placed markers being deleted by "delete my markers"
- fixed minimap offset when GW2 is in too-small-window-scaling-mode
- fixed crash when reloading markers in TacO
- fixed API key not querying info when added
- fixed not being able to delete API keys
- if an API key is updated with an invalid API key it no longer retains the previous valid key's data
- fixed marker info text not showing up
- fixed exit-after-1-minute if GW2 is not found on startup
- fixed -mumble command line option
- fixed minimap and map pois ignoring the alpha category property
- fixed TacO eating too much CPU when GW2 is not running
Google Chrome has found the download included a virus. Not sure what is causing it. Just a FYI, still gonna download because taco is cool.ReplyDelete
It’s a brand new build, false positives are common at first. Send it in for analysis if possible, please.Delete
Windows Defender instantly flagged it as a "Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml". Never happened with the previous versions.Delete
You probably weren’t in the first 50 to download before :DDelete

Had to open Virus & Threat Protection, run the download, press the down arrow for severe and press "allow on device" to get download to work. Just PSA for all that may have trouble.Delete
checked all clean now
Downloaded the lastest buildReplyDelete
how do i turn the map markers on? everything else is working
TacO only supplies a limited marker pack by default, I suggest you download Tekkit's marker pack first, it covers most things very well.Delete
Thank you so much for all of your hard work. I luckily didn't have issues with the download being flagged as "virus".ReplyDelete
Microsoft has since cleared the false positive so noone else will either :)Delete
Sadly it's now flagging a different Trojan (as of this comment): Trojan:Win32/Sabsik.FT.A!mDelete
Please send it in to your specific av vendor for whitelisting. Everything I know of that actually accepts whitelisting requests marks it as clean: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/cbb77769fba722958ba6df6eff55e11a2a5543b57a111fb455a487535db5ca92?nocache=1Delete
Latest build gets flagged by bitdefenderReplyDelete
Bitdefendertheta is a purely machine learning based crapstorm. Yeah false positive, unless you think everyone else is wrong :DDelete

when I opened the cue in the game there was no option to complete the mapsReplyDelete
Download a marker pack like Tekkit'sDelete
modify InterfaceSize to 3 not working, it will reset to 1 when Taco runningReplyDelete
I have a problem with latest TacO for some reason. When I launch the game, and then launch TacO, nothing happens, completely.ReplyDelete
Be it v50 or v51, they just do not show up at all.
Only v47 works just fine, but anything above that doesn't even launch.
I tried overwriting files into new version and I tried freshly downloaded version. It just won't launch for me (not even in task manager).
Any idea what might be the issue?
As mentioned, v47 works for example.
Please check the log next to the exe and let me know what it says.Delete
It does not exist in v51.
As mentioned, v51 doesn't launch at all, no matter how many times i try to open it, and it does not create any extra files (log included).
GW2TacO.log - if it doesn't launch at all please check the windows event log for any application related issues and send the taco related ones to me.Delete
After investigating event log, I am confused even more.Delete
There is nothing related to TacO at all, even if I try launching TacO v51, nothing new does not appear in event log.
It just seems as if TacO does not even exist.
I'm running into the same issue. Doubleclicking the .exe launcher appears to do nothing.Delete
The only thing I've noticed is that the GW2TacO.log gets a single entry every time I try to launch it, which is just:
[2021-10-07 20:55:33] (Info) [GW2TacO] CommandLine: "C:\Users\lopert\Downloads\GW2TacO_051r\GW2TacO.exe"
fwiw I am not using the dx11 beta.
Just updated to 51. Menu Icon doesn't show when I choose graphic settings Fullscreen 3840x2160Delete
When I choose Windowed Fullscreen, Taco icon shows up again.
Hopefully this is of some help.
TacO does not support fullscreen mode and never did. Only windowed fullscreen is supported.Delete
At my client the timer dosent work. No sabetha timer and so onReplyDelete
When using TacO in Windows 11, framerate absolutely tanks. Exiting TacO restores high framerate. Previously in Windows 10, this issue wasn't present. (( And yes, it runs in Administrator mode. ))ReplyDelete
Sorry I don't have win11 yet, it could be because of the new window style stuff they added. Will look into it once I have win11...Delete
Thanks, I appreciate it.Delete
Have to keep imputing my api key every time i load up taco, everything else is fine.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you put TacO in a folder where it doesn't have write access and can't save the config file. Run it as an admin or place it somewhere else.Delete
Just want to give a short update after doing some testing (guy who mentioned Win11+TacO performance).ReplyDelete
Win 10 + DX11 Beta + TacO = high fps
Win 11 + DX11 Beta + TacO = 27fps avg
Win 11 + DX9 + TacO = high fps
Not sure if it's something I forgot to do or just some incompatibility between Win11 and Dx11 Beta while running TacO. But it looks like it's not Win11 itself that's causing low fps.
TacO generate a crash for the Game, without TacO i can normally play.I mean it needs an UpdateReplyDelete
Based on the way TacO works I find that highly improbable and without additional information there's no way for me to investigate further.Delete
Sorry, apparently something was broken in my hardware and that's why the game stopped working. I tried to find the problem by exclusion.ReplyDelete
Is it actually planned that TacO gets a translation in German? I found a page on the internet with translations of the texts of TacO, but the last comment is from 2020. I would really appreciate the translation, because it makes things a little easier for me with the settings etc.
Translations are all done by the community through distributable language files, it's likely that the translation you found would still be vaild.Delete
Hey! Taco itself works well. But it makes my CPU core2 working on 100%. Normally it is 5-20%. I noticed it because my cpu cooler has started to scream.Delete
Hey I haven't played GW in awhile, and I happen to still have a copy of the 047 Release Version.ReplyDelete
I don't know if that would be helpful in any format, but I can email it to you if you want.
is taco supposed to show orichalcum spawn nodes and such? i cant see anyReplyDelete
Not unless you find and install a marker pack that contains them. TacO is a platform and people create and share marker packs on it.Delete
where can i find this pack? i do not know anyone using itReplyDelete
If there is no marker pack out there for what you're looking for you can easily create your own as described here: http://gw2taco.blogspot.hu/2016/01/how-to-create-your-own-marker-pack.htmlDelete
