I have been using both versions on and off for a while now. Now this thread is strictly about games development not Animation or Rendering or any of that jazz. Despite the python API change and supposed “performance enhancements” i can’t find any pro’s in using 2.5X on any platform.
Now I may be wrong in this and missing some vital key to make 2.5X uber. I leave that to you i want to hear everyone else’s verdicts of this transition, Pro’s Con’s etc
my personal Reasons for returning back to 2.49:
-More Tools and resources
-No Choppy performance under Ubuntu 9-10, WinXP 32/64, Win7 64 (Despite framerate and Vsync apparently operational. both windowed and full screen) mainly down to light handling.
-Stand Alone Exe performance and tools Far superior. such as blend encryption.
As i say again this could be me talking out of my ass but my last note is that the 2.5X interface gives me a headache, too much switching around and wasted space alone eats much time and energy.
