Topic: Crowdfunding - Convert Open Surge to Allegro 5

hey community,

as we all know, Allegro 5 is in the TODO list, and it is very important in what regards performance and supporting Mac, iOS and Android.

I've been in contact with Alexandre, and not only he doesn't currently have time (look at how many updates the game and the engine had in the last months), he would also need MORE time to figure out how to do the conversion.

I am back into using the engine, because it has a good workflow. I tried lots of others and they feel strange to me. It's very important when you are developing seriously that you feel good with the tools you have. And this engine, this community, they brought me into game development, and I want to bring something back too.

The campaign is now live and you can see it here: http://igg.me/at/improveOSE/x/1721586

Re: Crowdfunding - Convert Open Surge to Allegro 5

using hardware rendered stuff and going to mobile would be awesome, though there's a lot of work to get there.

Re: Crowdfunding - Convert Open Surge to Allegro 5

I've been networking a bit, people are skeptic about investing money in an engine's development, when there are plenty of other engines to choose from. And in all honesty, there are many other engines that are overall more capable. So I guess we're back to point 0 :\
