Hi Phil, Hmmmm...Yeah, I definitly do see where David is coming from. That's actually been one of my own issues with releasing my Genesis 3D engine. If I release it, regardless if I release it for free or sell it, I will have to support it. That usually means teaching newbies lots of programming theory, programming techniques, and explain to them how the engine works. That's a lot of work.
Not tomention,right now the G3D engine is just a library g3d.lib for Windows and g3d.so for Linux that can be statically or dynamically linked to a standard C++ project. I'm also planning on building a managed .NET library version that will work with .NET languages like C# .NET and VB .NET. That's all well and good for a programmer, but if someone doesn't know one of those programming languages my engine isn't of much help. It isn't an all in one deal like the GMA engine or BGT is. Of course, I could wrap the core with Angelsscript, like Philip did, but I'm still in the position of writing up pages of documentation how to code a game, writing samples, etc. I don't really have the time or the energy to put the effort into it right now. So for the moment, at least, G3D is a private engine. Although, eventually I would like to release it so Mac, Linux, and Windows users can start creating games with it. Cheers!
