My first Ogre3d Release is in planning stages

With school finally under control I think I am going to gear up for a release, yes I said that shit, of what I have done with ogre3d. I am still a bit in the dark about what its going to require from me, time wise, but I think the contents are going to be as follows:

The following libraries bound to ogre to complete my engine (functionality wise)
Squirrel Scripting Language
OpenAL Audio Library
PhysX Physics Library

User registration is opened up again.

I have been toying around with the user system over the last few months, trying to get spammers to lose interest and unfortunately, It’s not working. In an effort to try to increase the commenting on this mo fo I am going to be opening up enrollment and allowing email confirmation again. Feel free to post at your leisure, but keep an eye out because the lockdown may soon be felt on the rest of the site. Continue reading “User registration is opened up again.”

GneuManager & Ogre are the clear victors in this race.

Manufacturation and why HL2 is done.

this morning I had a meeting with Mike Whitfield, Terry Moenkhaus and I met up, originally intending to meet up with the Iron Grip folks and solidify some of our issues and what not. Well that fell through. They signed someone else and so the topic fell on relief of being able to pull together an idea of our own. We talked for quite some time about what we want to do and unfortunately HL2 is not looking like it should be our focus. Most of the issues with building an HL2 mod are rather simple and hard to ignore, but one overwhelming issue is that there isn’t much that hasn’t been done. I likened it to South Park’s episode about how the Simpsons have already done everything, and they both agreed. We can rehash other game ideas but barring some new idea coming out it just doesn’t peak any of our interests.
