Hi All, We've just moved The Game Programming Wiki over to a new dedicated server, and have officially launched the site. At gpwiki.org you will find game programming tutorials and source code for all languages and platforms. And, because it is a wiki, anyone can contribute knowledge to help the repository grow! Drop by for a visit, and let us know what you think :) Ryan

Whatever happened to that game programming wiki at www.twilighthalls.de/gpwiki/ ?

I get a 404

I don't know, actually. I had never heard of it, but I just did a Google search and it shows up in a number of places. All of the links are broken though. Does anybody know?

I was aware, however, of a Game Programming Wiki over at www.gameprogrammer.com, but it doesn't seem to be too active. It's the only other one I've seen.

Hey there Brad,

Before I created gpwiki.org I searched around for other active Game Programming Wikis, and the only one I found was over at gameprogrammer.com. I guess I should've used the keyword "Development" instead of "Programming" in my searches. But anyway, it looks like your wiki focuses more on math, physics, and theory, so hopefully there's not too much overlap. I certainly don't want to step on anyone's toes.

As for Mediawiki, yes it's pretty great. Very flexible and powerful, though it can be a tad slow at times. I moved gpwiki.org to a dedicated server a few weeks back, as the wiki was bogging down quite heavily when it was hosted at ibiblio.

I don't suppose the owner's of these two wiki's would be interested in merging them? Or implementing some ingenious cross-linking system which makes duplicating information unnecessary? This is kind of impractical - the power of a wiki is to contain a lot of information in one place, and having two different ones will spread out the information.

Hey there marijnh. Looking forward to your new pollution ;)

As for the issue of merging the wikis, I would be all for it. Brad had mentioned that he was considering moving to mediawiki anyway. gpwiki.org is hosted on a rackspace.com dedicated server so it's very fast, reliable, and flexible.

Obviously we would have to discuss things further, but I am certainly willing to partner on this. The main goal is to provide a great repository of game programming knowledge, for beginners and advanced users alike. A merge would clearly help us edge nearer to this goal!

Brad?
