Demo

Recommended Posts

I downloaded PR, and I like it a lot. However the 2.6 version is rather dated. It''s enough to show what PR can do, but it''s not enough to start development. Here''s my thing. I don''t want to pay until I see that it will actually be worth it. Once I get to the point where I have a working demo, I''d pay for PR. Do you plan to release a fully feautured demo of the last PR version, so we could develop with it, and pay for it once we feel it wouldn''t be a waste of money? I understand that there is no way to have everything without paying anything, but I think this solution is fair.

Download the most recent Land demo he''s posted, take into consideration that version 3 has significant improvements to the engine (go read the presentation thing at Egerter.com), and that should make your decision easier. AFAIK, he isn''t going to release a demo or eval version of PR -- at least for the forseeable future.

In any case, I don''t quite see how "but not enough to start development" is a valid argument. If you like PR 2.6 well enough to purchase it, you''ll definately be pleased with 3. Almost no commercial engines allow you to develop with them before licensing -- at least not without a very strict NDA and Terms of Use and Intent agreements. Chris obviously doesn''t have time to handle such things in addition to working on PR, work his day job and maintain some semblance of a life.

Ok, then I have a different question.

If I start working with PR 2.6, and develop a great deal of code with it, and then buy PR 3, is it going to take a lot of time to port my code? Another words, do the APIs that exist in 2.6 exist in 3, and if they have changed, how different are they?
