This is fixed for v1.0.

Does BRPG run native on an Intel Mac now?

Best regards

Welcome, hjmaier.

No, BRPG runs under Rosetta emulation on Intel Macs.

It's fast enough, however, that I'm actually planning on animating the most-processor intensive task (Fog of War rendering) in a future release, so that certain light sources (e.g., candles and torches) will seem to flicker, and have a soft, realistic edge to them (by using a gradient in the alpha channel, vs. the hard edge of light reveals in current BRPG releases). Of course, this animated lighting effect will be optional, so that BRPG can still run OK on older and slower computers.

Thank you for the quick reply.

p.S. I just purchased a GM and the 5 floating licences pack.

That sounds SO cool, heruca . . . I think I'd really love that feature, even if it hogs processing power.

I don't think you'll miss a milisecond or two every 5 or 10 seconds.

This is not a complaint, I am just curious.

What is the reason, why BRPG is still running only under Rosetta and not native under Intel Macs? Is it because of the Programming enviroment you use?

Yeah, BRPG is programmed using Director 10, which doesn't support intel macs natively.

I believe Director 11 does, which heruca will upgrade to eventually. The problem with Director 11 is that it does not support several of the third party plugins that BRPG depends on, so the upgrade will probably have to wait until BRPG v2.

That sums it up pretty well.
