My guess is that around 25-50% of sceners have switched to mac, me included. But for some reason most of the stuff is still released windoze only. My excuse is that i'm too lazy to port, i just wanna do demos :)

And oh, i just might visit.

I have the same excuse. I promise to buy a lot of beer at Breakpoint to the person who ports my engine to Mac :)

why not make a new engine?

I just did, but it's on Windows. It's probably an easy thing to do, as well.

lol, 25-50%? are you kidding? :P
25-50% is way off.

Well, .... uh, the REAL sceners that actually do something instead of whining in pouet :)
added on the 2009-04-16 22:48:18 by kurli kurli
that would make it even less...

well, on the accvan we had one mac, one machine with osx/xp, one xp, and one linux
that makes it so that 50% of sceners use osx

irc is dead

ps: now, I'm back on _not_ agreeing with you ;) - irc is not dead (among sceners at least) :)

ok, i don't do irc. what about reviving the mac.scene.org site?
(also, judging from the bp09 releases, it seems that only the hungarian scene supports the mac, hihi :)

puryx: back in the days when people had time and forums and mailinglists and web 2.0 social networking sites and msn and icq and skype didnt exist, then irc was king and *rant rant rant* now its more a distraction or source of temporary entertainment, i'll take no part in it.

ps: you have a point! - Still doesn´t mean is dead though. Most of the TBC bbq´s and booze sessions are arrange through irc ;)

btw, i'm still alive but just not getting onto irc at all lately :/ Too many things going on at once, plus I can't use it at work any more ;(

Arse, forgot half of what i was intending to say!

Yeah, bring back mac.scene.org too, it's been resting way too long :)
added on the 2009-04-17 02:47:58 by psonice psonice
Preacher: I'll give it a try but now there's some more urgent things to do first :)

And, f*ck, why is it me that needs to do all the porting to those n+1 obscure painful platforms :( Help!

added on the 2009-04-17 06:47:13 by havoc havoc

sorry.. i've installed xp on my mac now

hahaha Amiga lives on! Mac is dead.
but really, what is your reasons to switch over to OSX ? or you're on Mac but really still running Windows on them?
I used Mac (os8-9) for 3 years at school, then OSX at work for one year, and now i'm glad i don't have to touch it anymore! From a "power user" perspective mac doesn't make any sens for me. But maybe i just haven't found the secret or something. somone enlighten me!

..and don't start saying MS is evil, cuz yes it is, but Apple is worst.
