If then it probably won't be in the near future. There's only one developer working on the game engine, don't know if there are ppl working on the plugin itself. AFAIK that part won't be developed in the near future because it'd be a lot of work to develop various versions of the plugin (different browsers, different OSs, etc.)...

Plugin development

I was showing the boss a game in progress that I have been developing outwith work with a workmate.

He was interested in the web plugin and had asked me to find out about the development as he would like to see it kept up to date.

He thinks that he might be willing to look at working on the plugin development as it could be beneficial to the business to have it in a stable state.

I will post as soon as we get something more firm decided.

The earliest possible start for development work would probably be late in February/March.

I am guessing that the devlopment is going to be targeted in stages (Windows, Linux, Mac) in order to create the largest possible user base as work progresses.

At present though it is still in the planning stages and it may be that an alternative will be used (Shockwave) for interactive 3D although there are numerous benefits to getting the blender plugin running.

Until such times as our programmers get a look at the structure of the plugin it won't be possible to say how long it woudl take to get a first stable version out and if that would be viable for the business.

Expect news, good or bad, over the coming weeks.

I too would like if the plugin was updated, but I didn't want to ask to put stress on kester(the one game engine dev)
my boss doesn't want to use the 3d web plugin because he saw it was not supported and now we are evaluating other software =\

If I were experienced enough I would most defenelty be coding but I'm still learning qbasic in school and python at home and I'm kinda slow. maybe in a year or too.

Hello,

I would like to know if one day (not to far) the browsers (firefox, i.e...) will be able to read realtime 3d without any 3d plug-ins, with a standard format like X3D for example (like it will be soon maked for svg in firefox).

and if the devellopers of Blender are thinking to make the blenderGame scenes exporting to a format like X3D (or other format if there is some thing better, i'm talking about X3D because i saw that devellopers are allready working on this format with for .blend file, and X3D is linked to xml so it's should be a gook think?)

Do you know somethink about that?

sorry for my english, i don't speak it very well

This is what vrml was supposed to be,

I think this is not really going to happen any time soon. 3D GUIs do not work well. And I think 3d games etc is not a large enough market to come with the browser. On the otherhand, flash is very popular, so I don't know.

I new that the X3D exporter exist but is it abble to export the interactivity maked whit blendergame logicbricks and phython scripts ?

i think that whit the recent new speed of adsl, 3d on web is going to became a very important think
and that it be a very good think for gameblender file to be read easyly without having to install the specifique blendergame web plug-in because most of people don't like to install new plug-ins especially if it is not known

for this reason i don't think that a web designer could propose to a web site with blender web plug-in to a client

is gameblender file were reading easyly on web, Blender could easyly became a very popular soft for "proffesionnal" designer, otherwise it whil be defficult to use it for "proffesionnal"

firefox is a open source soft, why the devellopers of blendergame will not work whit firefox devellopers to make a plug-in for firefox or X3D for other browser instead of working on a "owner" blender plug-in

?

sorry for my bad english speaking :?
