Thanks Dan. Sucks my Hard Drive died had to start over. Thanks for resending mine. :D


Dan, I noticed when I was downloading that you have Awesomium. What is that used for or planned to use for?

Most likely he will probably have that thing to put your systems or something.

I'll plan to release an update this next week with a number of crash fixes. This will also test the update system. Thanks for your patience. 

... you have Awesomium. What is that used for or planned to use for?

Awesomium is used to draw the webpages that make up the menu system. It should be much faster and more reliable than the old system I was using. It's the web kit engine designed for integration into 3D graphic apps.

No problem :) I've played around with enough beta stuff to know that things will crash a lot early on.

If you could add a feature to show fps it would be great.
And do US have the multi-core support yet?

Alt+F should work.

molunbun is right, multi-process support beyond texture loading will have to wait for .NET 4 (to be released early this year 2010).

How do you make a barycenter point?

1 - Click on the "Box Select" tool.
2 - Drag a box around the 2 bodies.
3 - Click the "Add Barycenter" button in the selected bodies panel.

OR

1 - Select one body.
2 - Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard.
3 - Click on the other body.
4 - Release the Ctrl key.
5 - Click the "Add Barycenter" button in the selected bodies panel.

That's because your not a Beta Member. Everyone who got it are Beta Members. Read "How do I get Beta?" Topic first.

There were a few people that signed up after the last release. If you were one of them you'll be included on the next release in a few weeks.

No annoyance at all.

The release date for version 2 is May 1. We expect to release at least 2 more beta version prior to that date.
