Accepting donations

Today I created a Paypal account where you can make donations to the project.
My plan is not to get rich that way. And the game is still free.
The rationale is that I decided to make versions of RoR for MacOS and for Linux, and that I need more hardware to do that. From the beginning, RoR is a $0 budget hobby for me, and I intend to keep it that way. So I turn to donation to buy the appropriate hardware.
Here is what I need:
So if you are interested in these ports, or if you want to help RoR anyway, donate using the button in the right of the page, that will bring you to a secure payment form from Paypal. (You must be over 18 to donate)

Thanks,
Pierre-Michel

The only thing that worrys me is that im going to be donating for something I will never use and also have to wait for months on end before we would get another windows release.

On the positive side, it may bring in some more 'talent' to the community, and maybe make the game more well known.

There is no obligation to donate.
I opened donations to make the porting of RoR toward other platforms possible.
I don't do RoR for the money.

danharibo, thanks for the proposition, but I prefer to keep a tight control on the source code.
I don't do RoR for the money, but as the project grows, I want to keep the property of the code in case of an eventual selling or commercialization in a distant future. It's not my plan for the moment, but I want to keep this option open.

Can you make a version for 64-bit windows. The current one does work on xp x64 but does not use all the recources that are available in 64-bit. For example more memory alocation and grafic features.

urm im guessing soonish, im sure it wont be too long,

I would estimate 2 to 3 weeks because Pricorde took some time out after 0.28. You also have to remeber that as the game get bigger it gets more complex and things take longer, so in the near future I guess that instead of getting a release once every month it will be once every 2 months then 3 months and so on as it grows.

ROR is awesome, and i would like to make a donation for a linux port but i am not 18 :-(

I am able to offer resources though and I only use linux so getting ROR on linux would be quite nice for me.

Please contact me if you can think of any way i can help. i have servers you can use and such for data storage and what not and i would be very interesting in helping port the game, in things like beta testing as i know you would not like to release the source code (which i would have no intention of stealing anyway, you did a really good job with this game). I can't even begin to tell you how many hours i have been entertained playing this game but i don't have windows here so all i can do is watch the videos and look a screenshots, and it gets boring after a while. lol

Thanks

What do you need the external hard drive for? Are you that short on disk space? Linux can run in a pretty small space.
