Oh yeah it gets that reaction a lot from 1337h4xx0r-wannabes. It's a solid engine and it supports a lot of things many others don't such as farm rendering to power CAVE setups and the like.

I'm not going to fight over engines in this thread and you can keep the personal attacks to yourself.

Just pointing out that dismissing it with nothing but smug face for argumentation is not very intelligent. You should at least elaborate why you think it's a poor choice if you make such statement.

No he doesn't, because that's not what this thread is about. Now can we get back on topic?

It's ironic that those "1337h4xx0r-wannabes" know more about how un-optimized and bloated unity is than you seem to.

Back on topic: What made you decide to stop working with LÖVE? I don't really understand what you mean by

Any features in particular you weren't able to implement?

There are several features that would make our lives a lot easier that will not be added to the LOVE framework because they are either 3D-specific (which is code that the LOVE devs don't want to maintain) or not a priority. Uniform buffers, depth buffer, other such things that would help 3D a lot, and 2D a little (or not at all). It' snot necessarily a bad thing, it's just a goal that we don't share with the devs, so instead of trying to FFI a bunch of stuff into Lua and fight the system, we're looking into other options that will give us what we want directly.

update: we needed some animation features for our LD37 entry, so anim9 has been updated to version 0.1.0. now includes the ability to layer animations at different playback speeds and influences, and you can look up the final transformations using anim.current_matrices[bone_name], for things like object attachments.

the animation blending didn't come until just now (I really wish I'd figured it out last week...), but we used the bone lookups to transform our hit capsules for the boss, basically making the whole game work.

Didn't we have a big argument last week on the love issue tracker about the direction love is going? Aren't you unhappy with the direction I want love to go?

That aside. We're planning to deprecate LOVE3D soonish in favour of replacing the rendering engine with bgfx.

hm, I won't be entirely moving off love any time soon for my jam projects and prototyping, I think, but you might want to keep an eye on lua-bgfx. I'm still working on improving the API coverage (and making what's there usable), but most of my future projects will be using it.
