Release 0.7.0 available

As promised earlier, the latest release is now officialy available for download for the 3 supported platforms : Linux, MacOS-X, as well as Windows (XP, Vista or 7), be it 32 or 64 bits.

Please note that the download site URL has changed, and is now

I hope you'll like the new features, and that you'll find the emulation gets a bit closer to the real thing since the old release!

2010 is nearly over

Yup, 2011 is rearing its ugly head...

Therefore, I hereby promise that the 0.7.0 version will be released by the end of 2010 -- no matter how and when I will manage to do this! :o)

It got stuck for too long on my hard disk now, it's time to share. Of course, the user-guide, various documentations as well as some minor other stuff won't be completed as I wanted them to be ; but in the end, I guess you won't care too much about that -- Heck, I don't even know if you will notice it at all, indeed. ;)

I'm currently reworking the download page, since so many people seem to encounter problems while unpacking the old ZIP archives with the newer windows OS - be it Vista or Win7, then it's ready.
By the way, here's a quick tip if you have this issue : instead of using the windows "integrated" unpacking facilities, just use a third party unpacker (like winzip, winrar or 7Zip) to unpack the ParaJVE builds ; it often solves the problem...

So stay tuned for a really really near release!

In the meantime, to let you wait it out, here is a snapshot of ParaJVE running George Pelonis' War Of The Robots game (with a 100% original overlay I have designed for this game) :
