How are you guys? ORX is now at number 3 game engine in indiegametools.com, I think we all should vote for ORX so that it can be no.1, it will be amazing for us, also I think ORX site needs more dazzling look and need more small demo projects to show off like sample video,so that more people are attracted and our community gets bigger and bigger. I would say it again that ORX is one of the best 2D game engine available today, I love the way ORX works and handles things.
The link of the site is given below, thank you all
I've been checking the place from time to time and the owner of that site also registered on orx forum a while ago.
Unfortunately a lot of people do mass downvoting which makes it hard to shine there (look at the number of downvotes for the indie pricing categories for free/open source engines, including orx).
So yes, if you feel like it, a quick vote there might help bringing more people here.
As for the website I totally agree that it's pretty ugly and I've been saying so since the beginning. Still waiting for someone to step up to offer to help with its presentation!
As for the video, that'd be great, I wanted to do something like that a while ago but I don't have that many good looking things to show myself unfortunately. Any contribution is more than welcome!
I wish I could help the site to shine more but unfortunately I have no knowledge of web and stuffs. I think there should be a page like 'Showcase' or 'Project' where people can see the existing projects made by ORX users. Now, my final year is giving me much pain, I would be really happy if I could help ORX in any way.
Nice job !
And without downvote other in my case
As for me, I was looking for an article about game engines and found the wikipedia list of game engines. After looking at the IndieLib and the Moai SDK, I found myself trying Orx and enjoying it rapidly :]
I voted by the way, so glad to see that it's currently at #1! Although, why are there two ORXes on the list?
Edit : We should use social media to promote ORX, I told all my friends on facebook to vote for ORX, thus so drastic change on the ratings
Because Orx deserves to be #1 twice!
Nice, hopefully that'll give us more exposure! I tweet with #orx hashtags from time to time, mainly to advertise new features but haven't done so in quite a while.
What is surprising is that orx has 42% of down votes. I suspect some people to simply downvote all projects that are not their favourite otherwise I don't see why people would downvote orx in the indie pricing category as it's entirely free.
I also think the support here is pretty good compared to other communities, but heh, my opinion is definitely biased on that one!
And sure, your support is really good for all of us !
