Signore Massimo, no lascia ogni speranza, we are working on it. See https://gitlab.com/Over_score/wp43s/-/releases. How many glitches did you find so far? Thanks in advance for your support.
Entschuldigen Sie, Herr Walter, I am not hopeless, but was I enrolled in some beta testing stage? :mrgreen:
Scusa, signore Massimo, we do not raid the close community and take prisoners for beta-testing but offer our software to the community and invite them (see the link above). So if you wait for being caught and enrolled (a nice word ;) ) for beta-testing you may wait longer. But if you simply dare to test it will be more fun for you most probably.

What do you need? A computer, laptop, or the like (I assume you've got one) and optionally a DM42 or DM41X (I assume you've got one, too) you may flash (hmmh?). Then please follow the instructions. If/when there should be any ambiguities don't hesitate to ask - you know us, we typically react quite fast since 2011 at least. :mrgreen:
Sorry Walter, I've actively participated in a few beta-tests in my past life, dutily reporting issues found and the like.
But, in today's world, where nothing ever seems to come to a final version, I am quite fed up of playing the guinea pig.

TBH I tried to install your software under Windows, it required extra libraries, installed gtk3, still could not be found... -> reverted my system to previous state.

I am more than happy to contribute by buying at least one unit once available, but no time for bug hunting.
And, hey, I am aware that this is hobby project: don't want to urge anybody. But, as for THE BOOK, I can't refrain from teasing, once in a while. ;)
Greetings,
    Massimo

I had some awesome dreams written up but I was writing for too long and got logged out. I guess I'll learn to use the "Save draft" button... tomorrow. Teaser: 71, 72, 74, Linux, 200LX - there are some synergies there! Well, at least in my dreams.

Please allow me answering LIFO:
  1. I know you love teasing. So do I. Hence I know, who teases may easily be teased back.
  2. Why didn't you tell anything about your 'success' in installing the simulator? We'd been happy to help you - but what we can't know... As I've told my kids every once and a while: My abilities in clairvoyance are very limited.
  3. From guinea pig to guinea pig: Oiieek!

I would love even a teaser from SM about what is coming. I’m in for at least one whatever it is… maybe I’m delusional.

With May half over, we are patiently (?) waiting for DM to reveal their surprise.
