    The solution is much easier (and cheaper) than that. Just install VirtualBox (free) on your new system and then install a virtual guest Win7 OS to run old programs. In the virtual machine settings,...

    I'm curious about the source of what you read. It seems to be more of an opinion.

    What's to loathe about Win10, especially if you can most likely upgrade from Win7 for free?

    That's a complex term. What does that mean? What licensing? How much of the code do you think is eligible to be open sourced?

    There have been issues for past UE updates as NT bundles the plugin to the LW release/patch schedule, not UE's schedule. NT'd probably be better off making this a separate project to support and...

    Wouldn't it be cool, if in Modeler, you could set each layer to display as shaded, wireframe, or bounding box? You can in Layout. It's in the scene editor. Just...
