since I am developing a game engine for myself, I am also very interested in the Blender Game Engine and maybe I would like to contribute. Since I am a skilled C/C++ programmer with a good knowledge of OpenGL and of course Blender Itself (Know it since 2.23, did several mini games and countless images) But there are a few questions whose answers are hard to find here, even with the search function.
-Is there any good ressource for the Blender Game Engine (mainly its technical background) and its current development state?
-Who is actually involved in the Game Engine Development and where can I find those people?
-Are there any other game engines around which are going to be integrated in Blender?
-Are there any future plans for the BGL?
Maybe someone can me point to the right direction.
Any information is very appreciated.
Can’t think of anything (other than the source code of course)
Who is actually involved in the Game Engine Development and where can I find those people?
Erwin - http://blenderartists.org/forum/member.php?u=136
Snailrose - http://blenderartists.org/forum/member.php?u=287
Mal - http://blenderartists.org/forum/member.php?u=2467
At least, those are the ones I know of. Erwin is the main developer from what I understand.
Are there any other game engines around which are going to be integrated in Blender?
Not to my knowledge. There is “Crystal Blend”, but that’s a plug in.
Are there any future plans for the BGL?
If you mean the “BGE” (Blender Game Engine), then the answer is more than likely no.
Erwin seems to be working exclusively on the physics engine.
Snailrose has been working on integrating OGRE, but he’s only one man, and it’s been months at this point since the project was initially announced.
In other words: Your best guess is as good as mine.
1… Erwin is the game engine guy I am not sure how to get in touch with him, I bet he would love to talk to you.
2… see 1
3… toonist is doing an ogre integration
4… I hope it is still in development, if not please start it up again (and ask someone to fix the near sensor )
Hope that helps
If you need someone to help you test, please let me know
Folks, you’re answering time is incredible.
Okay so I’ll get in touch with those people and let you know what’s going on.
It’s time to give the game engine a push, I feel it!
more developers would be very welcomed
there is some other guy working on bge toonist decided to rework the whole game engine and Ashid is implementing ogre and he’s going good
If you find a bug be sure to report it.
