if you want i can try, but as i said before, we have competitions alot, so its annoying to be competitive with the same person., but still... its your choice.. i personally dont care what you say, yes or no, because i am just bored and want to waste time, lol

ok sure I will do it.

I'll make the challenge thread. If you want, you can render in Ingido, gives great results easy, and my script works (I'm actually adding support for meshlights and physical sky now)

but if I were you I'd use Maxwell. I'm gonna get it soon because of the amazing results that Maxwell users are getting, and, in particular- I LOVE this one-

That maxwell render is awsome! Too bad Tomas chose to model 'CHEAP' speaker clips on that audio component, and no digital output for a external D/A converter either.
