I made an issue in Github, if you have more ideas or recommendations for best practises
https://github.com/Zaflis/nxpascal/issues/7
I agree it doesn't make sense that particle engine is still using old way, but at the same time i might rid of all the others as well. To me it would make more sense and be simpler to use VBO (TRenderer) than just manually operated vertex arrays because the caching code is already there. But also i do want to get rid of Delphi support and start to use operator overloading in math code, and that would also mean dropping support for old FPC versions.

Obviously i will keep zip backup of the old sources, they just won't be updated with new features. Further on i'm aware there is a lack of tutorials or demos. Maybe that is right place to discuss those things: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,16149.0.html
I mean, what is the thing you miss the most?

And we're in October!

3 months left to the next year contest!?  ::)

I think one user more experienced with OpenGL should be in charge for the next year Graphics Contest 2018, if we will focus on OpenGL of course.

I did the graphics contest the last three years, but I know nothing about OpenGL, in fact I know almost nothing about graphics (internal functions), but only how to use BGRABitmap.

So if someone is interested to take charge feel free.
