Well if my husband and I ever win the lottery, I will send a million dollars to Moviestorm.

Careful...Wiser to invest in MS so you can make sure they get to work on the things we want.smile.gif

2.0 64bit for example. wink.gif

That would be an investment and it would really help them a lot. They could hire more people and get more done with the software.

Well it sounds like what you want is different to what I want. Which is;
  • Adjustable body dimensions
  • Ability to create custom animations
  • Ability to have actors hold items
  • Keyframable lighting
  • Water
  • More particle effects
  • etc.

As I understand it, the reason they have held back on many of those things is due to memory restrictions inherent in 32bit in the face of advancing technology.

2.0 64bit would make all of those things more possible. smile.gif

It would be to everyone's benefit.

I'm not sure where you're getting this information from. Are you saying that it's not possible to have these features in 32bit software?

When you say everyone, do you mean everyone that has a 64 bit OS?

Its not possible to have all the features we want due to memory issues, yes.
We have to juggle mods around as it is. You haven't noticed?
Movie size is severely limited and some of the best user created mods eat up so much memory it is necessary to uninstall them when they are not needed for the current project.

I get this from the numerous times I and others have posted messages in the help forum trying to solve those issues, only to discover the solution just mentioned.

Having the ability to overcome the memory issues by upgrading to a 64bit OS gives a viable solution to everyone.
Right now there is no solution.

edit: no good solution.

You've already got a 64 bit OS, right?

I have 64 bit computer so it would work for me. The problem is that a lot of people don't have 64 bit computers so that would be difficult for new users and a lot of other people.

Answer this: without going to 64bit, is there any other way they can solve, (and I mean solve), the memory issues?

If so, I'm for it.

The problem is that 32bit can only use a little less than 4GB of ram.
Between the OS and MS, the need easily exceeds that.

I'd be happy with anything that solves the problem but the only realistic way I'm aware of is with 64bit.

Until they do that, MS improvements will creep along at sub-light speeds.smile.gif
