Let me be the next person to state that I found the demo very impressive.

Though I can program C++ and I am using Ogre with some success, I am myself more of a C# guy. Therefore I found betausers statement interesting: he said that C# development can be 2-10 times faster. That is my experience and I thought that was due to my crappy C++ skills, though its rather because of the speed and simplicity of the dotNET IDEs.

I was hoping for a hw accelerated graphics engine that lets me code in C# - preferably a game engine so I can work on a game and a serious project parallel, and NeoAxis is the most impressive I have seen (so far it had been the Piccolo toolkit which is unfortunately discontinued).

The most important advcie I can give to betauser is to work on the community and build up the trust people need before they invest in new technology. Technically, the engine has the potential to be a big success, and to me it looks like betauser has the skill and determination needed! Though I must say I would prefer if he found another developer to share the workload, one man projects have a bad rep.

I particularly liked the UI and how it works in fp!

Is neoaxis rendering based on Ogre3d or Axiom?

Does that mean I can use every asset that worked in Ogre and it should work in neoaxis the same way?

It's his own wrapper to pure c++ ogre, he's a machine :D

hehe, there's the first thing to do. For advertising I'd get a native english speaker to help you with press stuff :D I'd be happy to help and I'm sure other people here would also.
In regard to the v1.0 thing all you have to do is hide any unfinished features :) But I do like how it's NOT v1.0 because so many engines just to v1 WAY too early. It's a stupid rule of gamedev because look at ogre and how long that took. Any professional package knows when it should go to v1.
Also I'm a teacher at a games course and some of the students and I have decided to try and use NeoAxis for a project, I'm sure I'll have lots of questions soon ;)

Does that mean neoaxis is in no way related to the Axiom project? If a wrapper integrates Ogre that well into dotNet, theres probably no future for Axiom.

I think betausers versioning is very honest and very close to how I do.

In both my major projects I started at v0.1 then increment the version number by 0.1 for any major release and 0.01 for small fixes. Therefore I never got higher than 0.8, though stable and bug free. In one case my boss pushed me into releasing 0.8 as 1.0 just because he could stand my caution any more :)

Axiom has a future for anyone that wants an engine written entirely in C#, perhaps because they want to be able to customize it without using C++. Also, there's the fact that theoretically it'll run on XNA on the 360. Sorry to be off topic, but just responding to the comment.

You added DirectSound and removed OpenAL? You do realize that Vista doesn't have support for hardware sound via DirectSound, right?

Yes. I had problems with performance of OpenAL (Always software mode on some cards). Therefore was implemented DirectSound.

It is a pity, that DirectSound has lost Hardware support on Vista.
Strange politics :|

For Vista it is used new API - Windows Audio Session API.
Possibly, In the future I to make one more sound system(XXXSoundSystem.dll) for Vista.

Or, describe the sound effects in a text file, and tell the player to imagine them in his head while playing. :)
