The Dark Secret of Irrlicht Revealed

Posted on:May 21 2007

I didn't want to tell anybody about it, but of course some few, hybrid, bitplane, afecelis knew about this. Now, somehow this has reached the public. Ok, and now that everybody knows, it's ok to post it here on the blog too: Irrlicht is based on the Quake 2 Engine. No, it's not only based on it, it's in fact a rip-off. I just replaced every 'ID' with 'irr'. :-)

UPDATE: This blog post was about a wrong article about Irrlicht, claiming Irrlicht is based on Quake 2. Of course Irrlicht is not based on Quake 2. The linked article has been corrected too.

I think he just thought irrlicht is based on quake 2, don't know why, though. :)

That's just plain silly: one look at the source code shows that Irrlicht is actually using the DNF engine!!

Judging by that Architectural Visualization app from Alvaro, I'd say that Irrlicht is capable of much more than the current demos show. I think that by updating the models and maybe some code in the demos you could gain a lot more users. The engine is powerful, and the demos don't rightfully show it.

Yeah, And I think we should make a group of step-by-step tutorial about how to use the Irrlicht.
