I have entered all my info, but it goes to this message regardless.

Also, there are two "Next Step" buttons, which is confusing.

Any thoughts (other than "Hey, use the older version of FIREcalc for now")?
I didn't know there was a "New FIRECalc" - something other than the most recent 3.0 updated Apr 2019?

Open FIRECalc, make NO entries, just click on "Submit." I should give you results including the chart on another tab/worksheet using the default values. Does it work? I tried several crazy inputs, including all blanks, zero portfolio, and negative spending - and couldn't get it to NOT provide results with the chart?

Googling "new FIRECalc" bring you to this: https://firecalc.com/dev/

Looks like someone is or was developing a new front end. But it might be from all the way back in 2011 per the copyright?

Hadn’t seen that, that’s an unfortunate dud. Just use https://firecalc.com/.

Yes! It's one of the only calculators I've found, other than Fidelity RIP, that lets you adjust your spend over time with any level of granularity. We're hoping to RE but have young kids and expect our spending to vary significantly over time, as more through the phases of family life. We were happy to contribute to have this functionality. I wish the calculator would also give you more ways to adjust income and inflation.
