Good afternoon, community Smile
I'm from Russia so sorry for my english.
I have long been developing games and applications. And after a while, decided to find a new tool for development. I stumbled upon Deltaengine.
At first glance, the engine is just wonderful and met all my requirements. But I have a few questions.
1. As with the engine at the moment? It develops or suspended? Sad
2. What do you say about support for mobile platforms? This is implemented or are under development?
3. Where can I find examples of physics (2D and 3D) and lighting (light sources)?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Mr.NeoX,

We are currently a bit in stealth mode (and that is why there is also not much going on in this Forum, most development happens internally and with teams under NDA). Engine development is continuing, but we don't have a big team and we have to earn some money by doing contract work. The good thing is that we have some good use cases now and getting things much more stable. The bad side of this is of course it takes much longer than if we would just done engine work.

Still, everything you see in the public releases of the source code is usable and extensible, you can work with it and do 2D, 3D, Physics just fine with it. Some tutorials are available at: http://deltaengine.net/learn/tutorials

You can check out 2D Physics in the source code of the engine plus this sample app: http://deltaengine.net/g...tarterkits#physics2ddemo
Same goes for 3D Physics (but not as complete yet): http://deltaengine.net/g...tarterkits#physics3ddemo
For 3D Rendering and light sources there are some tests in the Graphics and Rendering3D namespaces, but nothing much because the last 2 releases focused on 2D games (as you can see from the starter kits, 23 are 2D, just 2 are 3D. It is certainly possible to create great games using the DeltaEngine, but there is more work involved and we like to make it easier in the future. A great example game is the recently released Soulcraft2 (released last week): http://soulcraft2.com

Hope this helps. If you have any question while developing, we are here to help.

Hi, Benjamin Nitschke
Thanks for the fast reply.
Now I understand your position with the engine.
If you give me such guarantees that the engine will continue to develop, I can safely begin to study it.
As I understand it is already supported by Android. It pleases. So it makes sense to buy a license now.

I put DeltaEngine 5 computers, but by 2 h of a problem:

As I understand that the engine complains about the lack of net framework 3.5
In fact, net framevork 3.5 includes the shell and has established vin7 net framevork 4.0.
I don `t know what the problem is.

Also does not work and the editor: Sad

Please tell me what could be the problem?

Hi Mr.NeoX,

looks like you have found a bug with the .NET Framework 4 that affects Windows XP (which I guess you are still using?). It has not really anything to do with the DeltaEngine and we did not encounter it on our test instances (including Windows XP) yet. Maybe because it was already fixed by a security update, please check if you have this one installed: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2468871

Details can be found here (or just search for the error message you have yourself):
http://www.hanselman.com...AndWindowsXPSupport.aspx

Please also tell us in more detail what did you do, did you just download the engine installer and tried to start the Editor? Did you compile it yourself? Etc.

Hope this helps already.

I am using W7 on all their PCs. I installed MonoDevelop Studio ( net fraemvook 4.0 for MD) and the editor DE.

Checked the engine still on nesk computers. W7/W8. Error has the same character. Changing not only the name of the connected assembly. I can not understand what the problem is. Just me?
May be a problem with the version of the engine?

Hi again,

Your installation of MonoDevelop (I guess you mean Xamarin Studio) has nothing to do with the error message you get. It seems like your .NET installation is broken and we cannot reproduce the issue. Please also try to post the full exception message (log file from your user folder/DeltaEngine/).

Can you please try to follow the tutorial and just compile your own app or starter kit:
http://deltaengine.net/learn/firststeps
http://deltaengine.net/learn/startingwithcsharp

Basically try to create your own project or open the DeltaEngine.sln and tell us what errors you see when compiling.

It is worth noting that the editor does not work completely. I can not press the "Create Project" for example. I can only open the examples and make the assembly.
