Yeah, I certainly understand that. I know that the audio, joystick
support, etc was much better in the Windows version of the G3D Engine,
and I even agree beta 19 seems like a step backward instead of
forward. The problem is that I want and need a completely
cross-platform solution that basically does what DirectX does that
will allow me to build high quality games for my OS, Linux, and
still be able to produce Windows versions for my customers as well.
That said, if Allegro doesn't pan out I'm just going to have to
compile a Windows specific version of MOTA for Windows, and forget it.
I'll be unhappy about having to maintain a version for an OS I no
longer use, but my customers will be happy at any rate.
