The description above says we can "add any kind of plug-ins to the core program". Can we create and add plug-ins now or are we waiting for Alpha 3?
ArkhenNetworkRecords Featured By Owner 6 days ago  New member
I can't find the option to change the language from Japanese to English. Am I just really stupid or does the default application not come with an English language pack? Also I cannot check in the settings because they are all in Japanese. Why didn't I learn Japanese :(
