OGRE Websurvey - Please participate !

Post by spirre » Sun May 15, 2005 2:18 am

We are two students from the University of Gävle in Sweden, and we are currently working on our degree project.
The project is based on comparing two open source 3D-engines. One of them is OGRE, and it would help us a lot, if you could participate in this web-survey, and answer some questions.

The survey is completely anonymous, and the data collected will be reviewed by us and no one else.

The survey is located here:
http://www.pinballhighscores.org/survey_ogre/survey.php

Thanks..

/Jens

Sorry, I can't reveal the name of the other engine, at least not until the survey is over. :)

Since the results are going in to our project report, or "article" or whatever, you can probably check that out when it's done.. which will be sometime in the beginning of June.

Thanks to all who have answered so far !

The other engine must be IrrLicht.

Why do you think it is Irrlicht? I tried some URLs in the same style as the presented with free engines I know about, but had no luck so far. :P

So, what did you guys put? I assume that you all evaluated Ogre in a non-biased way. Same as the people using Irrlicht will over there. lol

It makes sense. The other OpenSource engine out there worth comparing is IrrLicht. :wink:

But comparing solely on a few multiple choice questions isn't going to give much insight into why people think how good their engine is. I suppose you are comparing concrete things as well?

If you read the mirror post of this in the irrlicht forums you will see that in addition to conducting this survey they are also writing a game using both engines (ie: Two copies of the game; one using ogre and one using irrlicht).

There will be concrete comparisons, like the very simple game we are making. And we will also test the engines rendering performance in some way, later on.
The project had to be based on something, so we chosed user friendliness, and rendering performance, two things we think is important.
There will also be other comparisons, but the focus will be on the above mentioned criterias.

The survey is simply a sort of information collection, so we have something to refer to, when writing the report.
Since an active community is important regarding open source software, we thought it would be appropriate to ask the communites who they are, and what they think.

And there will be no announced "Winner", it is not what this is about..
