After much hemming, hawing and delaying, we are finally ready to announce the first beta of PyPRP2: PyPRP2_0.8.1.

This release requires a 32-bit Blender 2.57. 64-bit Blenders and older versions will not work.

A short list of features supported in this release:
  • Automatic vertex light baking
  • Alpha vertex paint
  • Multiple material layers
  • Spawn points
  • Lamps
  • Textures
  • Wireframe materials
  • Kickables
  • Sphere and Proxy physicals

Nice, 2.57 support should make learning blender easier.

Now begins the long task of getting my stuff properly ported. I look forward to seeing this developed further in the future :D

Just curious - what obstacles stand in the way of compatibility with 64-bit Blender? (I know it's low priority since everyone can just install the 32-bit version of Blender.)

Also, thanks to everyone who worked on PyPRP2! :D

The ancient version of PhysX (2.6) used by MOULagain/CWE doesn't have a 64-bit version. You could build libHSPlasma (and thus PyPRP) against a newer PhysX with 64-bit support, but then any ages exported wouldn't work in the CWE builds that most folks are producing currently.

If you're interested in PyPRP2/CWE for a new product, you might try building against a newer PhysX so you can have 64-bit blender support. No guarantees that CWE will actually play nice with super-new versions, though.

CWE will not work with any PhysX SDK that is not from the 2.6.x series. The cooked mesh format changed when the minor version got bumped to 7. Cooked meshes are not backwards compatible.

Ah, I see. Thanks much for the explanation :)

Just to make sure we're all absolutely clear: The engine code might or might not work - I don't know if anyone's tested. Anything you build with newer PhysX won't be able to read current PRPs or write compatible PRPs, though.
