Point Bridge Designer 2011 will introduce you to engineering
through an authentic, hands-on design experience. This software
provides you with the tools to model, test, and optimize a
steel highway bridge, based on realistic specifications, constraints,
and performance criteria.
This is the only version of the software that can be used to enter the 2011 West Point Bridge Design Contest."
Old test results
The test results for this version are very old, and as such they may not represent the current state of Wine. Please consider submitting a new test report.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
menus, right-clicking members/joints, animation testing, saving, loading, sample bridges, most buttons, colors
Pretty much everything I usually use to shave off $ seems to work.
What does not
The automatic java downloader/updater cannot complete properly during the WPBD install. You must first install the standalone offline installer for windows java:
This manual install of Java will allow WPBD to install properly.
What was not tested
Not every button, not every sample bridge, did not test each animation setting.
As the previous Wine tester noted for the WPBD 2010 version noted, if you disable "Allow Pixel Shader" it will eliminate problems hovering over buttons when the bridge animation test is running. If I hovered over buttons during the animation, the screen would flash and stutter. This stops if "Allow Pixel Shader" is unchecked in Wine Config.
