Again someone whose gameengine works. Am I the only with a broken one?
To bad that my project is on windows.

So I'll focus on that. My camera movement can wait or be replaced by static
steps (no more flying around for now). What about the interface? Should I
clone the Blender.NMesh? Should the created objects be persistent to blender
or game_engine only, like edit actuator?

Did I miss something? No more .exe's from new versions?

I started with some uml diagramms for the converter and ODE motion sync.

I'm a bit afraid of the complexity of gameengine, too.
