Heh... *I* wouldn't say that's the problem! But of course I'm a Mac user. :)

The program's developed in Qt, which is cross-platform(http://qt.nokia.com/products). So it should be possible to provide a Mac binary. Alternatively, the dev could open source the project and release the code so we can download and compile for our preferred platform. This would also allow people to contribute to the project.

I also would like a Mac version. I have been considering a house rule where you are not robbed xp for repeating stage 4 modules, can this program do that as an option?

Not hard at all...though, I recommend creating a folder on your desktop for it...if you install to its default in program
files, it doesn't like that..

I asked about this back in September, but it still appears to be an issue. I'm trying to build a Solaris VII MechWarrior, but cannot choose the Stage 4 Life Module Solaris VII Games even though I have chosen the Stage 3 module Solaris Insider. Am I missing anything which would prevent my choosing the Stage 4 module I want for this character?

Your problem is Solaris Insider is a stage 4 and is not a PR for your chosen stage 4. Try Solaris Stable Internship instead of insider.

I've noticed the website seems to have snuck off into the Internet somewhere without leaving a forward address. Anyone else have that problem?

I did use Solaris Internship; I just typed the wrong one. It's still not giving me the option for Solaris Games.

I ran it under Windows 7, so I don't think it's a Windows issue.

It has been offline, about 3 weeks now. Do not know the chances of it going back up, though...does anyone have
a way to contact the person who was working on the program?

Here is a link to the source files on GThub but I don't have a clue how to compile it.  Perhaps someone around here will know how to do something with them.  I believe you can contact Bearchik through the site.

New Units and RAT's aren't added until after the 2 month release moratorium is passed.

If you see any errors in units or RAT's PM me and I will look at getting them fixed.

I like it but it needs more work.  Still has some weird bugs and it would be nice to have not just the ATOW characters but some of the ones from the Era guides and reports.

Aye, last time I used it, when I entered traits and stats during lifepaths, they wouldn't be there when I reached the finishing stage, but the skills always worked.

Well, the site appears to be back up...With luck, this means bearchik will be having a new build up soon.

Seems that there are issues with their server. They have it back up, and are planning to get a new one.
