For some reason i thought the software was open source?

Is this true?

I would love to work on some featured to the software.

Hello Mr. Crotty

Yes, the GiroZ system is a open source, if you are interested in develop over the GiroZ, you can contact

They will give you the libraries to program in diferent platforms, Linux and Windows.

Hi there,

I would like to review the software as well, but can't seem to get your link working. I went through the technicalrp website as much as I could and I can't seem to find any source files. Downloaded the distributions and can't see anything on there either...

Certainly, I must be looking in the wrong places for the source code. Can someone point me in the right direction? Preferrably in English (no offense meant - I just don't speak Spanish).

Thanks mk2kompressor,

I have registered there now and have been checking out the site for about 20 minutes, and while I do use hyperwords, which can do basic translation, it hasn't gotten me far. Alas, no source I can see for ZRound, FLaCo, or anything related. Read some interesting forum posts, but ya... no luck so far.

Any other ideas?

edit: I've posted for Jesus on the site, and will await word back.

Looks like the software is NOT open source, after all. Read the reply I received.
