So, I have finally decided to join LD this time around. I have been following it for about a year now, joining on the IRC and reading posts, but I’ve never really had the chance to join, until now.
With only 16 hours to go, I still need to sort out my toolset and figure out the rest of the tools I need. So far, I know I plan to use Ogre3D for graphics and Netbeans IDE for coding. I will probably use the boilerplate code from this Ogre3D sample framework as a starting point. I will also try to get things working on both Windows and Linux, but my primary development will be on Windows so if the Linux side gives me grief around the end time I might drop it from the initial submission.
I will follow up shortly with my workspace photo, and I will keep posting here and to my blog at blacktopgames.com all throughout the competition.
I’m looking forward to this…
