No, if you don't want to compile, you need to download the binary files

Hey this is great news! Thanks so much for all of this effort, to all involved. Open source power at its finest - revealing the true strength of Torque!

I am so ready to convert all my resources and tools over to module form! Is that a realistic goal for this release, or is the module system not complete in this build? I've been twiddling my thumbs for a bit dealing with other company matters while this whole 3.9->4.0 update blows over...but if the module system is ready for my tinkering I could start pumping out some tools/resources!

Speaking of the new modules etc., is there a 'guide' or explanation someplace on how to use all this new shiny stuff? Like templates to follow, tutorials on new module creation and so on?

We're also looking at possible C# support, based on Lukas's fine work.
Ooh, we are?
Interesting :P Although, I'd like to point out that my work on the C# stuff is split into: "supporting any desired scripting language" and "generate C# libs for scripting Torque".

So it might pave the way for other languages too.

Sorry for the delay, but it was quite a few PRs that got pulled!

Here's the list!

I'll also update the OP with it.

@ LukasPJ: That was kinda the main point behind the mass-convert https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/pull/887. To give a more straightforward set of hooks to play off of, wasn't it?

Yeah it was, but there is still a few changes here and there that needs to be made. And I've also created a parser that outputs an XML file with information about script-exports, which I use for generating a C#-bridge (but could be used to generate other bridges as well).

Hi Guys,

After porting some projects over to v3.9 I notice that there seems to be an issue with real time shadows. They just don't seem to render correctly. Is there a known issue in this regard ?

If your seeing hitches, probably https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/pull/1442 ( http://forums.torque3d.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=387 for the status-thread with pics)*

*edit: should note due to a bug with translucent objects, had to shut down the capacity to specify a cycle for the freqency lights update dynamic marked materials at. immobile, unanimated objects can still be left updating their shadows at a low rate.
