Hey nightblade9 I know it’s been over a year, but I just wanted you to know from a noobie that Python is a great language (no flames intended) and Haxe is foreign to me, but seems like an alternate (again no flames intended). I would like to see your idea come to a happy concusion (meaning it being applicable for the Python community.
A little back story for you:
I love using Blender to create games (easy, fun, and used to use Python), but since their migration to the latest version they cut out their game engine.
So Armory and UPBGE picked up the ball and so far only Armory is still running with it (well I must add), but here’s the rub. Armory uses Haxe.
Unfortunately my knowledge of yet another language at my age (Not that it matters) is harder to grasp as I didn’t start learning any programming until about 2 years ago.
Yes a late to the race programmer, lol.
So, I attempted to use the new mutli-platform Haxe that Armory uses, but again found I was in waaaay over my head.
Then I found your project…
I thought to myself (as I read the README) ahhh, I’m saved…
Then my heart sank. I saw the last revision was Jan 2018
I thought… well maybe they might start it back up. And maybe it may just work… Who knew.
Which led me to this post that sparked my interst when I read you may pick this back up.
From a noobie (old fart) who loved Python’s ability to be easy to learn (and still learning btw, lol)…
Please continue this work. It may benefit a lot of upcoming and future programmers and game devs. I know it’s a lot of work (trust me I really understand that), but the work you started is a good thing. Don’t let it die and fall into shadow. So many programmers quit an idea because they feel it isn’t worth while, but never realize that it actually was worth it to other people.
See, I can relate, because when Blender cut out their game engine it sent me into the abyss. I though… who needs my game anyways, It’s dead.
But my loving wife saw that I was attempting to give up. She looked at me and said, “I won’t let you give up on your dream. It is worth it. They will love it, all you have to do is stay with it. I have your back.”
Now before you say anything. Yes I am still perusing my game (I won’t place an ad here, lol) but I just wanted to tell you about one man’s idea can change the world.
I believe that you can.
Believing is half the battle, and If my loving wife believes in me… Then I can believe in you. Because I believe that your project can help others (like me).
Live Long, Program Greatness.
