Screenshot 2018-08-02 12.38.43.png

Victor and I are out at ChinaJoy in Shanghai taking meetings right now lowering property value....haha
So, if your around, send me a message to meet up for a drink or two or fourteen  ;-)
We are only here till the 6-7th so hit me up now if your around so we can meet up.

BaseHead Mac: 
The official release date for version 5.x Mac is August 1st (yesterday)
We have hundreds of users already using it with minimal bug reports and tickets open so it's time to release it to the masses.  Plus it gives me and Vic something to celebrate while in Shanghai since we only see each other every 2-3 year.   

Free and discounted license info to 5.x Mac:
If you bought a NEW 4.x license in the last 3 months then your get a free upgrade and if your bought a NEW 4.x license within the last 6 you are entitled to a 50% off upgrade.
So to clarify, the date on your order for your NEW 4.x license needs to be May1st to August 1st for a Free upgrade
and people Feb 1st to April 30th for 50% off.

if you fall into this window with a NEW 4.x license send us a License Request  and choose 'Replacement License' and enter in your order details there.
If you don't, just think of it this way....BaseHead makes a really great tax right off   ;-)
and nice thing about 5.x is you'll get 12 months of free updates now included!




Setting up a Raspberry Pi license server for a CodeMeter CmStick.


Many users in the past asked me if it it's possible to hang a CmStick on a NAS to avoid having a fully blown always on PC/Mac hosting this LAN based dongle.
The problem with NAS units is they don't have a version of Linux on them your can install the CM Runtime onto.

Fortunately a $35 Raspberry Pi unit does!

BaseHead user Antonio Muñoz got it working and shared his experience for others to benefit from.  Head over to this ARTICLE to get all the 411 on how to do it yourself with his help   ;-)





GDC 2018


Game Developers Conference:
once again I will be at GDC next week kissing hands and shaking babies.
More importantly I'll be teaching all the game geeks how to drink....haha

The yearly BaseHead Social will be 4-6pm on Thursday as always.  Free beer on BaseHead for 2 hours. Come mingle with other BH users. Send me an email if you want to attend the social or meet up at some other point during the conference.

Also, the main yearly 72 hour-ish sale will come those 3 days I am up in SF to help pay of all the dranking as always. 
It starts the minute I get to Burbank Airport on Tuesday and ends the minute I land back in Hell-A on Friday.
