@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqthose usually use a fully fledged game engine18:39:24
@potatoxel:matrix.orgpotatoxelur a fullu fledged game engine18:39:37
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinano they don't18:39:39
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinathey use small engines at most18:39:51
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqlöve, libgdx?18:39:53
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqmaybe not at big as Godot, but still far from barebones18:40:12
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinayeah those are small engines, but you still picked ones that use stuff like that18:40:40
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinasee opensurge just as a random example18:40:52
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinadunno, globulation2 all custom18:41:03
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqthose are both really old projects from when there was little other choice18:41:32
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinaC-Dogs SDL18:41:41
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinathe list goes on18:41:47
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqSDL is nearly a game engine :p18:42:07
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoina poVoq: that doesn't matter, I'd still pick SDL over löve for example, and still today you keep seeing people making engines from scratch 18:42:20
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqyes it happens, but it is generally a bad idea18:42:38
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinanah, it just helps for the drawing, input and sound a bit18:42:40
@potatoxel:matrix.orgpotatoxeli usually call these frameworks (SDL, monogame, etc..)18:42:41
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinabut still pretty low level18:42:43
@irc_irc.freegamedev.net_povoq:irc.freegamedev.netpoVoqtrue, that's why I said almost18:42:57
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoina poVoq: my point isn't whether it's a good or bad idea, but that this is what developers have fun doing 18:43:17
@potatoxel:matrix.orgpotatoxelits fun to rewheel the invent18:43:36
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoina potatoxel: don't hack my brain, I read that incorrectly :P 18:44:24
@potatoxel:matrix.orgpotatoxelso u read the correct version? lol18:44:46
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinathe one that isn't written yes18:45:45
@rampoina:matrix.orgRampoinaalthough I noticed afterwards so maybe that doesn't count18:46:10
