0.5.5.1 11th July 2010
License clarified by Sergio Reano as Freeware or equivalent ('The software is free, but the code is not open source for the moment.')
The following further info has been provided by the developer as of 1st August 2010:
'As a starting point, here are some information about the application:
- it written with Visual Studio 2005 (MS framework 2.0)
- it uses directx 9.0
- it uses a customized vertex/pixel shader to render scene. The source code of it can be find in the installation folder inside the files BFL_*.txt
- its code is compiled for x86 processor (32 or 64 bit)'
Installation works as of Wine 2.0-rc7 when DotNet 2.0 is installed via Winetricks. This includes LDraw full install and apparently the application.
What does not
Attempting to run the application results in 'has encountered an error and needs to close' messages.
Wine suggests the installation of Mono for Windows, doing so leads to the encountering of further bugs, apparently related to DirectX3D.
What was not tested
Any functionality once the application is running, since we haven't got that far yet.
The application appears to have been written using Visual Basic(?)
