Feeble Attempt with TwoLoc and Ogre3D

Over this weekend, me and my group sat down and tried to tackle the TwoLoc engine provided for this year. We tried to figure out how it worked and how to make it do what we wanted it to do. I will be going through my experience through it this weekend.

 

 

It sucked.

 

 

Yea I know I shouldn’t whine about it, but seriously. I’m not trying to say TwoLoc or Ogre3D sucked, by no means am I trying to say that. Rather I’m trying to say that me trying to grasp how it worked and trying to use it sucked. So in the end I suck.

I attempted to go to Ogre3D’s website to try and do some tutorials but I didn’t even manage to setup a project to try and do a tutorial. I even installed CMake and tried to get it to install I don’t even know what. I just browsed the website and stared at the triangle logo.

I spent a fair amount of time just staring at this tri-colored triangle.

 

Overall, I think my main problem is I just don’t know where to start. Trying to find a starting point in a large project and just diving in is, as I find anyways, difficult! I guess I’ll keep trying and try to get some insight/advice from my peers but I have to start cracking down on learning how to use it all. After all, the homework questions need to be done for this class and the cut off dates for the easy questions are coming up along with the midterm! Yikes.

 

I will be posting as I learn more, what I learn and my personal progress. Hopefully learning TwoLoc/Ogre3D starts to pick up.

 

 

On another note I need to get my team together and start committing some code for our GDW project!
