Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I guess you mean what OS we use to run the Editor, opposed to what is our target OS: In my case it's Windows since that is the OS I am most familiar with and it has (in my oppinion, which is also the majority oppinion in this case) the best C++ Tools with Visual Studio. I also think that it is the primary target OS for the editor, which means that you might run into some issues on mac that you don't have on Windows. Most tutorials also presume that you use Windows, although that doesn't matter much, since there are not a lot of differences.

I know that there are people who are using it with linux. I also know that it does not work right out of the box, and that you will have to do some work to get it up and running. You might have to do that every time a new version comes out.

In short: If you are comfortable with linux and a person who is already versatile with computers and is willing to dig deep, go ahead. If you are someone who is new to game programming or programming in general and wants to see what it's like and try some thing, I would discourage it, since the hurdles you may face may be bigger than what you can handle, or will just discourage you.

Just go ahead and search for what you need to do to get the engine running on linux, see if you are comfortable with that, and then decide. There is no "right" answer here.
