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"

Requirements for the report are as follows

1- Word count 2000 to 4000 words 2- When analysing each framework/engine you must consider the following Architecture features a. Processors
b. Graphics c. Audio d. controllers e. Storage
f. Platform interfaces

3- As part of the report consider the Cross-Platform implications for each one. These can include: a. Issues in achieving cross platform game operation b. Developing for different platforms

Your question is really interesting but I think you complicated your assigment too much or school/cource you are are attending is really, really advanced. I think the asigment should be just a case study of features and maybe you implementing a basic scene in all 4 and comparing and documentation pages and even some overview tutorial would be enough for this. On the other hand I would too realy like to see such a document about engines arcitecture and belive there got to be something like that considering the number of external devs creating pull requests for the engine. So if you did find such a document sharing the link as answer here would I belive be of much value for a lot of people.
