  • End of the Machinery Game Engine

    This is pretty weird.

    Then again, in regards to the engine itself dying, I feel like this is inevitable for many of the projects out there. For example, there was the Xenko engine which was later renamed to Stride:

    It's actually a nice project, has lots of great features and feels like it should be a more open alternative to Unity, whilst being similarly easy to use. However, compare the attention it is getting in comparison to something like Godot:

    If anyone has decent experience in C#/.NET and/or graphics programming, you are welcome to join the developer team of the Stride game engine.

    The code base is already mature and very professional. The quality standards are fairly high, but that's a nice challenge and you can even learn a lot, depending on your level of experience.

    As for the history, Stride was developed commercially by Silicon Studio for about 10 years but couldn't complete with the big two on that level. So it was open-sourced about 3 years ago and the main developer is still maintaining it, but he has a full-time job. The team isn't very big yet, but quite capable people.

    It's a great product and the only truly open-source C# game engine with a high-end render engine and proper asset pipeline. The shader system is the best I've ever seen, it's absolutely mind-blowing.

    Let me know if you want to learn more about it...

  • How beginner friendly is C#, and what can be done with it?
    2 projects | | 23 Dec 2021
    I hate how everyone just says "with Unity" when mentioning C# and gamedev, there are a bunch of engines out there which support C# scripting, Godot, CryEngine, Xenko, Flax and a bunch more, as well as a lot of proprietary engines (like Frostbite). Not to mention Stride a game engine written in C# using WPF for the editor interface, it's insane what you can achieve with pure C# nowadays
  • Recommendations for building a game engine
    4 projects | | 17 Sep 2021
    You can make a game engine in Java/Kotlin. But, that doesn't mean you should. For professional work, your choices are pretty much C, C++ and Rust. is a good counter-example to my claim. But, the far more common method is a high-level language interface over a C++ implementation. is an awesome example of a Kotlin interface over a C++ implementation. Unity is C# over C++.
  • FUSE an open source library for visually programming on the GPU
    3 projects | | 13 Sep 2021
    FUSE is built for use in vvvv gamma and follows its ‘always runtime’ model allowing for fast design and programming work with no build or compile process in between you and your results. Instant and visual, so you can work fast and play freely. Rendering uses the Stride 3D Engine integration for vvvv, allowing for game engine style PBR materials, lighting & post effects all without having to write a single script."
  • Godot 3.3 Has Arrived
    3 projects | | 21 Apr 2021
    I picked up Godot years ago, and played with it on and off, because I am only a hobbyist. I have been spending time in Godot and in Stride[0], and opensource Unity-like 3D GE, but with a lot less clutter and fantastic C# and VS/VS Code support. Stride also has a lot of great documentation and examples, and you can utilize C# scripts from Unity with some tweaking. When and if Godot gets stronger on 3D, I may switch completely to it, although I wish it had a Lisp/Scheme for the scripting language...maybe Janet[1] could be used! Like I said my wish list. I am so happy there are so many choices available. I started programming in 1978, so things have come a long way for sure!


  • Text rendering issue in WPF?
    2 projects | | 2 Feb 2021
    A few years ago, I was working on the editor of the "Xenko" game engine (now "Stride"). We had to play with DPI settings to deal with resizing the scene view that is rendered by the game engine and integrated in the WPF-based editor. it is a huge project, but there are a few entry points that could give you some ideas: * app.manifest: has some dpi awareness settings. * GameEngineHost: overrides the OnDpiChanged method and does some calculation to resize the native control that display the scene, which is not drawn by WPF. You might not need that kind of hack though.
