Description

We've highlighted UrhoSharp a couple times, the most recent being, Be a 3D Hero with UrhoSharp. Today we're highlighting a cool implementation of it, UrhoSharp on the HoloLens...

UrhoSharp for HoloLens

UrhoSharp is a lightweight Game Engine suitable for using with C# and F# to create games that run on Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and SharpReality.

UrhoSharp is a lightweight Game Engine suitable for using with C# and F# to create games that run on Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and Unix. The game engine is available as a portable class library, allowing your game code to be written once and shared across all platforms. UrhoSharp is powered by Urho3D (http://urho3d.github.io/), a game engine that has been under development for more than a decade.

To help developers get up and running quickly with UrhoSharp we are providing a set of project templates for Visual Studio.

    Unfortunately UrhoSharp is not very well supported, as it seems to be a one band project within Xamarin, with little to no documentation (instead have to go to third party bullet documentation etc). There is no support for UWP on ARM.

    I have tried c# 3D solutions using SharpDX (DirectX11 UWP XAML interop), OpenGLES (Microsoft Angle windowstore UWP XAML interop), and UrhoSHarp (Xamarin FORM XAML UWP x86).

    We need to lobby more interest from .NET developers to motivate Urho3D c++ developers to provide support for UWP X64 and UWP ARM DLLs => so that the Xamarin team can bring UrhoSharp to UWP x64 ARM in time for the Win On ARM coming Q4 2017. Without that, we only can deploy UrhoSharp in Win32 emulation mode in always connected PC (Win On ARM).
