Just curious as to the progress on with the new version. Are there any projected completion dates? I am anxious as this new version sounds too good to be true.

Thanks

Enjoy v1.8 until Dallan finishes working on v2.0. Dallan has a real job and works on the new version in his spare time sharing that time with his wife and child and working in some hunting when he can. Dallen is working on it and when it's finished it will be announced here when it is posted for downloading. Before that happens there will be some evaluation and debugging testing. But when it is ready it won't be a secret. It will be the topic of conversation for a few weeks.

Hey Dallan,

Are you going to surprise us for Christmas with 2.0? No pressure, I just had seen anything posted for a while in regards to the progress so I thought I would take this opportunity to check in.

Merry Christmas to all!

I wish that Mr. Dallan would be friendly to us MAC OSX users with his software.

I haven't tried it, but it appears that WINE runs on Power-PC OS-X. (See the Darwine project, sourceforge.net/projects/darwine/ ). And if your Mac is an intel platform, it appears that WINE works even better.

And I do know that PointBlank runs pretty well under WINE on Linux.

If you're in a hacking kind of mood, give it a try and let us know how it works.

Thanks Albert.
I think that I downloaded wine some time ago.
I will do it in the morning and let you know how it works.

Eric

Has anyone heard from Dallan about 2.0's progress? Would it be possible to write a MAC version also?

Thanks

tsulak,
in 3 months you post exactly 3 messages, ans all it is, is about this one topic.

I think popgun answered you right up there in the third post.

I reiterate

WHEN IT IS READY YOU WILL KNOW ABOUT IT COZ EVERYBODY WILL TALK ABOUT IT FOR WEEKS

So there.

gelandangan,

I mean no harm, and am not trying to pressure Dallan in anyway. I respect the work he put into 1.8 and think it is one of the best ballistic programs I have seen. I am just excited and curious to see the new version. I have yet to see an answer to my question. When it is done, its done............is not an answer.

No worries though, its guys like you that prevent me from posting and you have just reiterated why.

Well then...Maybe you need to pull up a stump, grab a beer and join in. You might discover the other side of us...Just might....We have never turned anyone away. We have had words with each other on ocasion, but we got over it. And he's still here...Aren't you Tracker... Very Happy

We have a cruel and mean boss here (Mr. Dallan [still hasn't deleted Vinces string like I asked]...), and we give him a wide berth... We all are waiting very patiently for 2.0...But we are aware that he works for a living and has a family. His time is tight as you would know if you have children and want to hunt too. Sometimes he even gets a chance to join us on here, but not as often as we would like. He will get the job done, but we MUST have patience...Otherwise just keep lurking and like gelandangan (gets a bit testy sometimes, but he can't help it. He's old) said...You will know when the chatter starts about 2.0...

ALL GOOD THINGS COME WITH TIME...

Does that make you the best Bushy???? I probably don't know you well enough to gig you that way, but why not....It's not like we're face to face so you could hit me or something Laughing Laughing

You are not the only person anxious about this new 2.0, but I will reiterate both of the fine gentleman. If you are here only for the software, why be a member. How about a post and see if you can learn something. Second, patience young grasshopper. Dallan had to start over it will probably be about 2 years before we get the program now. His computer crashed and lost everything. Now, if it happens before 2 years you should be pleasantly suprised. Sad Very Happy

Evil or Very Mad

"Does that make you the best Bushy????" Huh??? Confused No...Just one of the gang on here that is also waiting, with patience, for 2.0...I've still got 35 years left on earth, so I still have time... Very Happy

Reminds me of a conversation I had with my CPA... who also happens to be my wife. She had a spreadsheet with financial projections out another 40 years. I asked her what happens at the end of the spreadsheet? Her loving answer is, "You have to die."

If that was a threat or a promise I am glad I have another 40 years to find out.

Bushy that was regarding the "all good things come with time" comment. I have noticed that most regard you has having the most time and thus goodness under your belt. You are thus "the best".

nevermind.....forget it....poor attempt at calling you old and the sort. Have a good day.
