Where to find game development tools?
I am doing research for a website project that I have been working on. The website connects game developers with services, software tools, code libraries , etc. This isnt like gamedev or devmasters or flipcode, they feature articles and are more community based. I wanted to get some feedback from developers:
Do you actively seek out open source or commercial solutions to make game development easier? If so, where?
If you were to use a third party solution, do you feel comfortable using open source or do you stick with a commercial product?
If there were a site that featured solutions specifically for game development, would you like to see commercial solutions separate from OSS solutions?
Do you feel there is a need for a one-stop-shop for game development solutions?
