Josh has had something like (4?) offical dates so far and has been unable to deliver. If he fails to make this unoffical beta date, I don't think you need to worry.

It's been more than clear that the current release date is "when it's ready".

"When it's ready" could be another 4 years. Nothing anyone here can do to change this.
Fair enough! Let's hope 4 years isn't the case. :D

Sure would be nice If I could just not bother with this vaporware and stop coming here through the year(s) and waste time trying to see what and if anything at all has changed.

I've voiced my concerns the past ..and nothing has changed. It still baffles me why a monthly post or something can't/won't be done...seems rather basic to me, but then again I'm a simple man.

Good to go, back down to 0 :)

In all seriousness, LT basically always compiles these days since A) It's Python and it's difficult to screw up in python badly enough to get run-time errors that you can't fix in 30 seconds and B) The platform that launches everything, performs the JITing and other native functionality changes very little compared to LT. As you can see compile errors in the actual C++ are rare and usually benign, thanks to the fact that I'm not having to do incredibly fancy stuff (like a billion macros to make C++ reflection work, more macros and templates to make flyweights work efficiently, etc...these things are trivial in Python)!

(Assuming theres something visual available again...)
Soon, my child, sooooooooon :monkey: Yes there's something visual. It's a 2D rendering of the LTverse so that I can continue bringing over the simulation and see that it's behaving. It's embarrassing and I refuse to post it until the 3D frontend is online (I mean, the engine is already capable of 3D rendering, I just haven't brought the algorithms and shaders over yet). I've been neglecting the 3D side in favor of bringing over the mechanics / simulation / AI. This is a good thing IMO...for once I'm not giving graphics priority :ghost:
