Just realized that on my own.

In the color menu, when you slide the color selector bar, it also rotates the weapon.

Shouldnt the PRO already include a mount?

Anyone else having problems with it the site on lower end systems?  I've had problems on two different laptops, dual core, 4GB RAM.  Especially if running multiple tabs or trying to do anything else while using Gunstruction.

As it is right now I wouldn't use it much as I'm not going to close down everything else just to play around with it.  Maybe if I was currently working on a build I would dedicate time to it but it's been a pain in the ass to use for me so far.

This is my work laptop.  Dell Latitude E6420.  i5-2520M, 2.5GHz.  Dual core w/Hyper threading.    4GB RAM.  Intel HD Graphics 3000.

Don't have the full specs on the home laptop but it's an older Core 2 Duo I think.  Has 4GB of RAM, not sure of the video card.

ETA:  Both are Win 7 64bit.

I'll try to test it tonight on my desktop and see if I have similar problems.  i7-3770k, 32GB RAM, SSD etc.  I don't expect to  have problems on that system if it's solely a resource issue.

I think it would be nice to have in there. It would give a more accurate price when using the PRO if they decide they don't need a different mount.

I see that you will be adding new users throughout the month.  I love designing AR's and am pretty tech savvy.  I would be honored if you considered me for the early prototype, if not I will sit back and drool until it is open for everyone next month. Thanks for all of the work you have put into it, the screen shots look great!

Bug:  Looks like orientation of something like the "AFG2 - Angled Fore Grip - Black" is upside down.

Other items: Trying to use the cowitness by looking down the sights, through an Aimpoint Micro I tried to place on the rifle.  It didn't show the Micro, but I don't know if it's due to the Micro floating above around, and not linking to the top rail of the rifle.  note I selected starting from scratch, and there's was only one upper there which came defaulted with an handguard.  I deleted the handguard and tried to place the Micro.  

I've only played with it for 10 minutes so I'll see what else is wrong..

Also on the paint screen... If you select a color that is touching the stock after sliding the bar it auto colors the stock

And... if you zoom in from the back, you can zoom into the buffer tube and paint the buffer spring(but nothing else)... Nice little easter egg of sorts.

While in paint, I selected a solid color and tried to scroll to the right to look at other colors avalible, and when I did it turned the view of the AR. As if you were to click on nothing to look at the AR from different angles. At the same time, it scrolled to the other colors, as was its main purpose. This occurs with any solid color I choose. So basically, the slidebar to look through other solid colors has an undesirable double function. Just something I noticed, not like it ruins the whole game tho lol.

Getting this when I try to get into the beta site



So either I am not invited or I am having a local issue.

Since I'm supposed to be invited, I assume local,
but I can't seem to load the unity web player, it's not clickable.

So what's my situation?

It works much better on my desktop than the laptops.  

Still a little load time here and there but tolerable.  I love that it X's out the parts that aren't compatible with something you've already chosen.  Excellent feature.

All experiences are in Google Chrome, haven't used another browser yet.

I'm having issues with it "freezing".   Once in the program, it runs OK.  But if I try to move the window around, like maybe half screen, no go.  I can't switch between tabs, can't minimize, can't do anything without it freezing.

I could get it to initially switch tabs from gunstruction back to ARFCOM but then it would freeze.  I could scroll the forum page up and down but that is it, all clickables were dead.  This includes switching back to the gunstruction tab, minimize or close, and all links on the page.  Forum links, sponsor links, ect.

I am running a underspec computer as far as processor, more of the ultrabook style.  

Processor  @ 1.30GHz, 1296 Mhz, 1 Core(s), 1 Logical Processor(s)

Ram 2GB

Because of this I monitored my processor usage and ram usage while running the program.  Idle the processor would be running at 35%  During transitions or downloads about the highest it would get would be 65%.   Once or twice I saw it top out at 100% but it was a spike that went right back down.  The 100% usage of the CPU still had the program running OK, and I could continue building.

It would be if I tried to change tabs or move anything that it would lock.  And when locked the processor would only be running between 35-65% never touched 100%.

Most Ram used was around 1.3GB

I'll try it later on a my higher spec computer and see what I get.

I had this same issue in IE10. Had to load up Gunstruction in Chrome first to get the Unity Player downloaded, then it worked fine in IE after that.

My issue with that is you can't deselect a part that is causing the incompatibility.  If you could override it by specifying you'd rather use the X'd out part and go back to find something compatible later, that would be better imo.
