Looks great gag.

 

I would hold off on the GPU, SMP as yet. They new clients are supposed to be out

shortly, and things might change.

 

I'm working on a USB stick, that can be figured on XP machine. Using Notfred's guide.

His didn't work to well, and I got it going. Gave him the info, so he can post on his site.

 

When I'm done, I'll send it to you, and you can put the pictures in it. :)

 

I don't know how, and I can't drive them straight lines. :blink:

It would be great if you could send the definitive version to me. No problem to add pics in it.

 

I'm now working an a guide for the console version. Hope to have it online later this evening.

I'll wait to make an install guide for the smp/gpu clients untill the definiteve version are ready.

 

:adios:
