Here is an overview of important Mogre links.
I created this, because frequently newcomers ask or search for something, but can't find it quickly because there are many forum topics and information on other places.Further important link and suggestions are welcome!
Just add a post to this topic. (Please do not write me a private message.)First place
Don't miss the important Mogre notes and links of this forum post
. (state of 2010, a little bit outdated)
In many cases you don't need to search for fresh Mogre binaries anymore.
Now it's easy to build Mogre
yourself by help of the MogreBuilder
Information about Mogre depencies
you find here
(Note: It's not needed to install all linked installers of vcredist. Read the text!)Wiki
wiki page is the central place for Mogre information
It contains links to the Mogre introduction, Mogre tutorials
, code snippets, etc.
Unfortunately the wiki search is very bad
So I suggest to use the Google search engine.
Add "site:ogre3d.org/tikiwiki " as prefix for your search keys and you will get only results of the wiki.
Click here to call the wiki search by Google
An other way is searching for tagged wiki pages
.Note: Each wiki page can get tags (keywords), which improves the wiki functionality (e.g. display similar pages).
If you want to see all wiki pages related to Mogre
, then use this link for a mogre tag search
The result list is sorted alphabetically, not by relevance! At the bottom you can click to the next pages. Note: The tag search shows only pages which have tags. Unfortunately not all pages are tagged. If you are logged-in, you can see the tags on the right sight. There you also can add new tags.
We are happy about everybody who improve
s the wiki
Even tiny edits (corrections, new links, new code snippets, ...) and bug reports are very welcome.You can log in with username and password of the Ogre main forum.
If you find dead wiki links
in the forum, please report them
In most cases the wiki pages still exists
The error page of dead links contains an inconspicuous link called Missing Links Forum Topic
Just copy and past the URL to this forum topic and we will fix the link!The reason of the link problems is the change of our wiki software, which uses a different symbol for spaces. When we know the "dead" pages, we can "bugfix" it and the old links will work again.Forum topics

Unfortunately the wiki pages weren't updated for a while. However - they contain some useful information. Especially look to the further links at the wiki page bottoms.
