[12:39:52] <Lucifer_arma> gotta love it when you're in kubuntu, and you install a printer driver, and it shows the GNU GPL and asks you if you accept the license
[12:40:27] <Lucifer_arma> also, it was a printer driver that initially motivated RMS to create the GNU project.  So, ultimately, he won, right?

[16:30:34] <Z-Man> Lucifer_arma: What exactly would QT give us here? The window management? Or would the ingame UI be built using it? On the link you gave (just checked Ogre and Panda), the example is just "show engine output in QT widget".
[16:35:08] <Z-Man> Huh, hadn't read that before: https://www.panda3d.org/blog/sdk-1-10-0-release/
[16:35:27] <Z-Man> "...and there is even a third-party development environment available on the Play Store for developing Python games on your Android device."
[16:47:41] <Armanelgtron> Ye man... pandas need to go extinct, right?
[16:47:59] <Armanelgtron> :P
[16:48:47] <Z-Man> They're freaks. Pee while making a handstand so they appear bigger to the females sniffing the trees.
[16:49:21] <Z-Man> Originally carnivorous bears, switched over to eat the least nutritious plants in existence.
[16:49:41] <Z-Man> Well, better than Koalas, eating posion all day, but still.
[16:50:30] <Z-Man> To get them to reproduce in Zoos, they have to show them Panda Porn videos, otherwise they're just too lethargic.

[21:36:18] <Lucifer_arma> Z-Man: Qt gives us the ingame GUI, and Android/iOS support.  Panda3d gives us a high performance 3d engine for nice visuals.  The main issue with Panda3d is that it doesn't really run on android.
[21:37:34] <Lucifer_arma> interesting.  Now panda3d had android support, too.  :)  Maybe the PyQt5 android deployment stuff will work for panda3d, too?
[21:38:41] <Lucifer_arma> um, that python ide isn't named panda or panda3d.  I had it for awhile.  I forgot what it's called, though, but search for python on the google play store and you'll find it.
[21:38:49] <Lucifer_arma> It also supports kivy, if it's the one I'm thinking about.
[21:42:45] <Lucifer_arma> Z-Man: it also reduces dependencies down to PyQt5 and Qt5, since the Qt library has everything else that we need.  If we do the rewrite using davenetgame (which still doesn't work), then we add that as a dependency, but it currently uses only the python standard library
[21:42:57] <Lucifer_arma> I'll probably want a qt backend for it, if that's possible.  ;)
