Not a video, but the instructions in the first post should be pretty simple to follow...

@Rob great to hear from you. Thank you for the big explanation. I hope some financial model will be identified, so work could continue. Maybe just with 1 developer to ensure a support, along with some volunteers from the community.
A kickstarter patreon or whatever could also provide some support in my opion.

And - I think - you have have proven your dedication (to me at least) numerous times on the forums, while RW was still in an active state.

Sometimes things just don't work out, but it would be great if RW would see some updates again

Good night!

@Rob,

if you are still checking in... I was a KS backer... and if you decided to move forward with RW development I would buy into a Patreon.

Just my 2 cents.

I'd do a Patreon. Figure how much it would cost to do something and set it as a goal and then however long it takes is however long it takes.

I would support a model that does not force a monthly subscriptions and does not move the product to the web. Don't go into extortion business and all should be good.

RW is serious tool, should always retain desktop client for superior performance, offline and instant access to the data.

PS: Does anyone work on RW to fix the reported bugs?

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

It's hard to believe they do at this time given LWD didn't know about the issues with the latest patch. They don't read the forums and don'e read the support tickets based on the forum chit chat I've seen.

As the saying goes, if ignorance is bliss, they must be the happiest folks around !

I agree with almost everything you say, and I wouldn't personally have an issue with some sort of paid support model, RW is worth spending a few bucks on monthly or what ever.

However I do not like the idea of an open Patreon model personally, I would actually rather some sort of subscription. The reason being simple: Patreon would mean the few pay for the many, and that's not a situation I want to be in. What could end up happening those with the most cash end up driving the direction of the product, which seriously could push away users and thus support from those who cant match the funds, you end up driving an inverse whirlpool.

I am not saying I have a perfect solution, but I have always been a supporter of subscription models. Like a user fee; tax payers support busses, but each person riding it must pay a user fee as an example. Yearly Subscription nets you updates, we just need to see the yearly plan. What I guess the million dollar question is, how much would need to be generated to support the development. I have many subscriptions I pay for many monthly/yearly and have no issue with RW having one if it is reasonable and we get some support as our RoI.

You want updates you pay a small support cost.

I really do not mind those who are most interested paying for the new features that will bring in new users.

Mandatory subscription models are, to be nice about it, hated.
