Re: [PAID] Looking for conversion of two shaders from glsl to hlsl (or cg).

Try posting classifieds on gamedev.net, gamasutra, the other industry specific sites, and the various reddit communities. Maybe even hit up a few IRC channels like ##opengl on freenode. Shaders are a bit niche, so you will have a hard time finding someone who specialises in it. Very few people learn...

Re: Ogre3D Based Game Sales

I've finally got a game to add to the list. http://store.steampowered.com/app/779590/Scavenger_SV4/ (Released 2018, not EA.) Awesome! I'll be sure to add it to the list next time I update it. (There are 3? or 4? games I need to add...) My own game has been taking up much of my time sadly. So it mig...

Re: State/feedback/rant -> Ogre 2.1

I guess I'll throw my two bits in. I view 2.1 as absolutely necessary in order to save Ogre. But at the same time I also consider it beta software that shouldn't be called "2.1" yet. Hell it shouldn't even be called 2.0 yet. Why? Because as devxkh mentions, it's missing a lot of features. I think th...

Re: [Announcement] Forums updated/ Addon forums to go down

the manual for 1.7 is still where it was before: http://www.ogre3d.org/docs/manual.old/ /docs/manual/ redirects the core pages to 1.10 for discoverability. I added a symlink so you can get around the redirects: http://www.ogre3d.org/docs/manual18/ Sorry, I was getting 1.7 documentation confused wit...

Re: [Announcement] Forums updated/ Addon forums to go down

Speaking of moving documentation to github. All manuals for older versions, such as Ogre 1.7, are now redirecting to the 1.10.9's github.io page. I see no way to change versions on this page, so I assume you have purged old data needlessly. :( Is there any place we can get the old manuals for the ol...

Re: [Announcement] Forums updated/ Addon forums to go down

Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after yo...

Re: [Announcement] Forums updated/ Addon forums to go down

I echo hyyou's sentiments. The current wiki system (Tiki) has always been crap, but I don't like some of Paroj's plans either. Wikis are designed for crowd sourced documentation. I can easily sign up, edit pages, add pages, and everything is great. for tutorial/ sample code Doxygen is the way to go ...

These kind of copyright violations happen alllllllll the time, and no controversy would usually occur unless the project attracts sufficient attention and actually generates any revenue, so it's usually not something for most to be too concerned about.

Re: Idea to prevent multiple 'same purpose' classes in your custom Game Engine

According to The best reasons NOT to use the Tombstone Engine : I wouldn't use Tombstone simply for the fact that the only reason it exists is because the Eric (the Author) rage quit C4 Linux support. Due to the very bad publicity (in my opinion) he renamed his engine to Tombstone, shut down the fo...

Re: T.I.M.E.: The Orion Incident (pre-Alpha)

Looking pretty good! I've been thinking you needed to do a commercial game with your engine for quite a while.

Be sure to hire an English writer/editor to clean up video and screenshots before you do public press release of the game.

Re: Ogre3D Based Game Sales

Q3 numbers have been updated. In this chart, I changed how I calculated the numbers based off Steam Spy's data. Instead of just eye balling it, I have taken the average of the lowest and highest day of the quarter. The numbers came out pretty much the same as my eyeballing method, although it seems ...
