I've tried this on all the 2.3.x versions, both fresh installs, with other contributions and completely hacked to death. I've tried with and without the compatibilty files and Guest Checkout/Discount Codes and I've not got it to work properly, apart from once which seemed to be a fluke because I couldn't do it again. It's seems to be random. It probably isn't.
My biggest problems with it are:
- It doesn't load at all and I get a blank screen.
- It doesn't pass the information when a guest checks out.
- The cart quite often doesn't show or breaks on the checkout page.
- The discount isn't automatically updated when a code is entered (if you have Discount Codes installed). The page has to be refreshed to show the discount but you aren't told that.
Jetta had a nice idea but I think without a rewrite this isn't going to get better. It has too many bugs for me, but then other people don't seem to have a problem, so it could just be me. Also, if you want to put anything else in the checkout or login areas, such as Must Accept Terms and Conditions, it's a complete pain to find where to put it.
To be honest, though, I bought Better Checkout by mattjt83 recently and found that it's a much cleaner way of doing the checkout. Granted it costs money and it's still over more than one page but it doesn't crash half as often (i.e. at all) for me and has a guest function from the start.
Sorry to sound like I'm slating it. I don't mean to, it was a brilliant idea but I think it tries to do too much in one place.
EDIT: The guest contrib to use with this checkout is in the "compatibility_files" folder. It's this one:
