Mac or Windows for EVN development.
So lets say all things being equal, I want to make a TC. I currently use linux and wine is hopelessly insufficient for for running EVNEW. Also, I don't think NC's cross platform editor was ever finished or polished to accomadate a TC.
So now I'm effectively down to needing a Mac or a Windows machine.
Is EVNEW sufficient to actually make a TC? By sufficient I mean a fully functional editor for which I will have a somewhat minimal number of bugs that I will have to deal with?(and I have some idea of where they are)
Say not to question 1), that leaves me with getting a Mac. I haven't used a mac since...OS9. So with this OSX I have some questions.
a) Will the new version, Snow Leopard run on PPC based Mac systems? Aka, if I get a G4 or G5 can I still run 10.6? Is there a performance penalty for doing so?
b) In your opinion is it better in this scenario to get an older mac and go that route (save money now) or get a mini mac (potentially save money later).
- For the format .rez, how is this written? So with EVNEW I can change the .rez files to .txt files. Are .rez files text files...just for Macintosh (this includes if they are special type of .rez file written for EV Nova)?
Or if not...what exactly is a .rez file?(I know it is the data file that the engine reads when it loads...but how do I view it...aka manipulate it).
I think that is all or at least a good start to this thread.
