MindTex 2 Now In Beta!
MindTex 2 is now in beta, open to anyone who has purchased a license or wants to take it for a trial run. Download it here!.
If you've purchased on Steam, simply opt into the beta by Right clicking -> Properties -> Betas -> Select 'beta' from the drop down and it should update.
What's new (Overview):
- Reimagined Interface - MindTex 2 features a completely overhauled user interface to allow for more flexibility, designed specifically with future updates in mind...and yes, the window is resizeable!
- Increased Stability - Rewritten from the ground up, MindTex 2 was redesigned for future extensibility and increased overall stability
- Better Results - With its redesigned core, MindTex 2 now produces even better results with performance and quality that scale better with larger texture sizes
- Additional Maps and Parameters - In addition to a ton of added generation parameters and features, MindTex 2 also now allows for generation of Reflection Masks and Gloss Maps with the same powerful simplicity as always
- What will it cost? - After much deliberation, I've decided to simply release MindTex 2 as a free update for everyone who has purchased the original. I have not yet decided 100% on a final price point, but it will be very close to (if not the same as) the current price for anyone who has not yet purchased a license.
- Will it be compatible with the previous version? - As of right now, MindTex 2 uses a different file format for saving projects and is not compatible. This is because, at its core, the versions work differently. I will be working on getting a project upgrade feature ready, but it is not yet in as of the time of writing.
Please send any additional questions, suggestions, feedback, or bug reports to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll try to update the FAQ as questions come in. Thanks!

The aforementioned registration / trial server connection problems with MindTex seem to have been resolved in the latest update, available here.
Additionally, because these issues may have made for a choppy trial experience, all 30-day trials have been reset to allow for a more uninterrupted evaluation period.

Hello everyone, there have been some reported issues with people connecting to the registration and trial servers for MindTex lately. While, unfortunately, this wasn't caught during the open beta, we are working as quickly as possible to resolve this and we should have an update out within the next couple of days if not sooner. Thanks for your patience and your continued support of MindTex!

Starting Saturday, February 4th, the MindTex beta build will no longer be functional. To continue evaluating MindTex after this, please download the release build here. With the release build, you will have the option to evaluate MindTex for free for 30 days, after which a license key will be required to continue using MindTex.
On that note, I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who participated in and purchased MindTex during the beta, and I hope it continues to prove useful in your future projects!
