ETA for Windows interface?


#1

I have been using a borrowed Mac with Mavericks for alpha testing HiFi while in the U.S., but I will go back to Europe in a few days. I can upgrade my Mac at home to Mavericks, but I use a Windows 7 PC as main work computer, so a Windows interface would be more convenient. ETA?

Hi @giulio we have been testing a preliminary Windows distribution this past week. I expect we’ll have that ready for alpha distribution early this coming week.

Also part of the Windows realm, at least at this time. Looking forward to a PC release.

So I am back in Europe after 3 weeks on the other side of the pond. If the Windows build is coming soon I will wait for that instead of upgrading a Mac. Can’t wait to build something nice in the area that I have reserved. @Jo​​Ja​​Dhara - I prefer Macs, and so do most of my European friends, but the fact is that 90% of people use Windows.

@giulio totally understand from the users… graphic wise the best but I am more a rebellion and love open source and get a feeling that Apple is bit more closed. Prefer android … and welcome back in Europe :wink:

So I will not wait for the Windows interface - I upgraded my Mac to Mavericks and installed the OSX interface without problems. See you guys in-world soon. But I would still like to here a realistic ETA for the Windows interface - I think Windows is crappy and OSX is much better, but 90% of consumers don’t seem to agree.

Here is the thing, I get the windows version to compile, I tracked down 99% of the files I need and how to get it running on another machine that did not compile it, but when I log in, some things are white like its not loading something white.

I would love to send over the Windows build I get running and the fact I get it to run but maybe someone could help me track down the final parts if I go into what I did.

Let me know. I think what is missing is some of the files that get packaged in for OSX, which is why it shows my avatar as white.the world loads and I can move though.

If anyone wants to work together on the project until an official one is out, let me know!
