I googled "Box2D in LiveCode"
it should be out in 9.1 and they already have a working prototype in-house
Has Box2D arrived yet?

No, and likely it never will:

Which LiveCode version includes Box2D? :shock:

There isn't one, which was my point. Incorporating Box2D was a stretch goal of the original KickStarter that was met, but has since been dropped from the roadmap completely.
Even though people contributed money during the Kickstarter campaign to fund just exactly that.

This thread is a year old. You keep starting this same conversation over and over in various threads and other venues. Enough, Richmond. Really. Go make some software.

Go make some software.
Just released a "fancy" new version of Devawriter.

Actually I'm off to our country villa for a 5 day holiday. :D

Where I shall be "slinging together" some very, very simple things to help
children who have a problem with how the definite and indefinite articles
are used in English.

Also churning through endless Old English texts analysing prefixes. :?

However, maybe I keep bringing something up because . . .

Yes, it has: that's why I "put the clocks back." 8)

A few years ago I paid into a Kickstarter for a fancy new kind of router. It never shipped. That's how Kickstarter works. You're funding a project that the author believes is workable but it may fail. You're an investor, not a customer. In the case of the router, they couldn't get it past certain bureaucratic requirements for release, or so they claimed. One never knows.

At any rate, Kickstarter projects do not guarantee results, only that they will do their best. LC owes you nothing except their best efforts, which I can promise they've done.

Your continual droning on about this reflects on you, not them. You know the team well, do you think they have intentionally ignored their goals? Or can you accept there may have been other unexpected roadblocks that arose?
