To reply to my previous comment, there is now (with the 0.0.7 release) a Windows binary on the Sourceforge page. Do not forget to unzip on the root of your C drive if you haven't installed OcempGui.

As I have some problems generating Windows binaries, I'll publish only source code on next release, until the playable 0.1 release. Then I'll try to get some working binary. Sorry for the bother guys :-( but my py2exe knowledge is kinda limited...

I'm fine, but i don't know why they put a date, they may put "When is done" or something XD.

You can change the langage in the "options" window and select "english" if you want. You'll get something like that:
Or there is an ini file where you can change "français" to "english". There is only one download for both langages.

Try to make an english version. If you load the text from a textfile you could send that textfile around and ask ppl to translate it.
I didnt find the download on that french website -_-

I have upgraded to ocempgui 0.2.3 and the code from 0.0.3 is working fine with it. You are right Diego, they needed an extra week. Perhaps we'll have a christmas present ?

This friday? maybe they need a extra week.

ATK is optionnal, you don't have to install it.
One problem you might have is that I am still relying on an old release of Ocempgui. I will update to ocempgui 0.2.3 (and python 2.5) when Pygame 1.8 will be released. Perhaps on this friday ? ;-)
I hope I'll be able to include those changes in the 0.0.3 version, that will come around next week-end.

i cant get the ocempGUI to work because i cant find where to download the ATK stuff.
