Arty and I have somewhat considered working on an improved version of alice, though it never got off the ground.


'Apple Macintosh' - An anagram of 'Complaints Heap'

M.A.C.I.N.T.O.S.H. - Machine Always Crashes, If Not, The Operating System Hangs.

You're *such* a mac person.

Also, it's my opinion that, even if the software is free, it doesn't excuse sub-par programming. Alice, though very well designed, is still full of bugs and could be so much better. You should know, however, that it is for this reason that Alice 3 has spent so long in the making. Dennis Cosgrove has real talent and truly wants to make Alice 3 the best it can be. When it's done, it will be excellent.
I dont like that eiter, and I recently started a new game in alice and its been a while. I got an error

It is not an improved Alice, but it is definetely a different looking version of Alice. I modified the Python Code.

/* nice py edit. i'm not versed in py, i'll need to check that out.

/* one of the reasons i posted this thread in the lounge, is because it is my opinion. i am sure some people enjoy alice. but since it was brought up as to what my reasons where is mainly because t is a required piece of software for school and it seems to not want to run in W7 64Bit. i don't run it because i want to. and the this is open source software we don't make promises disclaimer is bunk! i've ran gnu/linux since 1999 and usually can get things to work. there is no version of alice 2.2 for linux and this is disturbing since i would expect a better support system. moreover, i'd rather not run alice at all and learn computer programming algorithms in an actual ide, like eclipse or vi. */

here are the errors for w7 64bit /* wrong forum i know, but i think this fits the thread.

this bug might be upstream.

i think, in that it works for now, i fixed the problem. i had to totally reinstall windows 7 64bit, which is not nearly is bad as windows xp.

alice 2.2 is running fine.

it appears this error might have been a conflict with the java development kit or java runtime environment. i just don't have enough cola and sugary snacks to pick that knot a part, so i just nuked it. i have not loaded either package... yet. we'll see what happens down the road.
