I developed the ZornGL-Engine for my final school grade, where I had 6 months to finish it (starting october 2001) and to present it there I also made a small multiplayer game called “Ancient Rites” with this engine.
After finishing this for school, I additionally worked on it several months to make it into an engine for a RPG. But as the engine was one of my first OpenGL apps, it had many problems that had gotten even worse in the end so I decided to totally stop that project.
It was developed in Delphi 6 used OpenGL for the graphics and a self-written network code (TCP/IP) for multiplayer. It also came with an own mapeditor that later on also had a partly-working lightmapper included.
