The current version of Field is Field
23e, and is available for download for OS X.
Three very important warnings:
Field is tested and supported on Mojave (the latest version of OS X) and whatever OS is running in the basement of Logan center. It is likely (but not guaranteed) to work on your laptop, and increasingly less likely to work on earlier versions of the OS. Many ‘non-pro’ Mac laptops have underpowered graphics cards which make running Field less than enjoyable. You might find that turning off Graphics Switching in you energy saver system preferences helps a little or a lot.
Field currently has issues with non-US layout keyboards. We’d like to fix this, if you are using a non-US layout keyboard arrange for some extra debugging time.
The Windows build is
23f and is here. You’ll need to download this zip file, double-click on it and select “extract all” to get all of the contents out of the zip file someplace.
Two very important warnings:
Then you can run the
field.bat file to launch Field.
Field is tested and supported on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Creators Edition (the latest versions of Windows). It is likely (but not guaranteed) to work on your laptop. Some laptops have underpowered graphics cards which make running Field less than enjoyable. You might find that turning on *maximum performance inside your graphics preferences makes a huge difference.
VR is only supported on Windows (both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive / Valve Index are supported).
Field is Open Source! (specifically GPL v3+). Field is actively developed on Github. Formal bug reports, fixes, pull requests, feature requests on Field are always welcome (and, for the purposes of classwork, count as participation).
