    • GNU Portable .NET
    • Rotor (MS's Shared Source initiative for education)
  • Not .NET

Interested in helping with linux port with C# (Mono) and OpenGL, have background in Java

LeTic

I have currently some spare time that I would spend on porting Worldwind to Linux. I am a developper with C,C++ Java... background so don't hesitate to contact me.

I am very interested in this project but also very surprise that only one person so far has registered. Is somebody looking at this page ? ;o)

ninjagumby

I too am interested in helping port, particularly for Linux. I've got experience in C, C++, Java, ASM, and other languages. I hope to be a real asset in making this happen! :)

Basic required functionality list completed.

Site started.

Port TODO

  • Determine what needs altered Porting_WW:_Current_DirectX
  • Determine needed functionality Porting_WW:_Needed_Functionality
  • Decide on 3D engine
    • The suggested 3D engines seem to be inadequate with respect to C#
    • I am leaning toward the Irrlicht Engine which seems to meet the majority of the requirement identified so far. The C# wrapper is considerably behind the C++ version. I have also just found an up to date java wrapper at jirr.sf.net. unfortunately it currently only supports OpenGL on windows, with an alpha linux port. -Airvan
