Calling Chris Huntley...PC

Chris,
Now that the upgrade to Dramatica Pro for the Mac is out - does this mean that Beta testing for the PC version will start soon?

I so want to be a part of that!

Not soon enough. We hope for a Spring 2013 release of Win Dramatica Story Expert (everything crossed for luck).

Chris --

If you need any contribution of time toward the Windows version, I'm available! I assume it will be in .NET -- I have been coding in .NET for over 10 years (my day job), and have also been writing iPhone apps using objective C for about a year, so can easily translate the code there. Also very experienced with SQL Server, XML, etc. Just sayin'!

Of course, you could also use something like GNUStep or Cocotron to port the Cocoa source to Windows. It won't be .NET though, but I don't know whether that is really a requirement.

Frankly I'm surprised you didn't choose to code it in Java, so that the same application could run on every platform.

Hey, why not make an online version, so people can work on their projects from whatever machine they like, as long as they connected to the Internet? This is 2012, folks!
