13,99€ seem a little bit steep for a normal map generator, but I don't regret my purchase. The software does exactly what's on the box and the 3D view makes working with it fast and easy. I'm sure that many 3D game developers would find a use in this software and even 2D game developers might like to check it out, as normal mapping is just as possible in 2D games. I know that there are plenty of free alternatives, however none of those that I have seen offer the same amount of features, nor a 3D view, so I bought it quickly while it was 20% off.
Also, for those saying that it might be hard to use:
It's not. At least not if you know what a normal map is. :) I have never used a normal map generator before, yet I could get some satisfying results in no time. I'm sure I will use this software in at least one of my future projects, as normal maps really improve graphics for 3D and 2D games and such. I recommend MindTex to anybody who works with normal maps or plans to do so in future (like I do).
