2 DVDs I think (at least one was a DVD). I haven't had a chance to look at them yet.

Same here. Now my pretty box can sit on the shelf for a couple years. :)

I have a proud heritage of LightWave boxes going back to 5.0 all tucked in my loft. Eee, Hypernauts mechs on the back from Foundation Imaging... wish I had some of the earlier packaging, but I was always using other people's installs before that. Hey! Any chance of some box-art from the older version as nets we can print and fold? Mini versions would do, like this 'ere Paper Arcade (http://wayoftherodent.com/gd101/bs_paperarcade.htm) thingy.

Well, you have shots of a bunch of versions on my wiki (http://www.lightwiki.com/wiki/mediawiki-1.4.4/index.php?title=LightWave_History), however they aren't all sides...

Good man, Simmons!

Ben, those who pre-ordered LW9 from NTE, was that just a download only? No box (even if it's just a DVD case with just the program on it) manuals etc?

Matt, it's a complicated subject depending on the package you ordered and when. You've either got to send an email in requesting your disks or I think there maybe an area on your Newtek Europe account where you can apply.

If you don't qualify there's a 20 Euro fee.

Arggh. I have been harassing the receptionist at work, "any packages? any packages?" I am very jelous. Can't wait. It is at once both encouraging and totally depressing to see other people getting the big box... I've done the cheap upgrades since six, so I'm ready for a new box!! Oh it's even worse! Another Seattlite has gotten theirs? Jealous...
