Since I rejoined the scene of the jet3d community in NOV. 04,
I can see things moving quite fast after a 'ghost town' had reigned for about 2-3 years.
Old issue have been tackeled that previous teams could not complete, and yet were simply discouraged and moved on. Finally jet3D will be getting what Eclipse had intended.
Jet' currently compares to Unreal1 as at least 'equal' (fact), or as some say with a 'better' rendering quality than Unreal 1. And soon more in Dx9 features will give a DOOM3 and Unreal3 look & feel, as Jet3D is also a portal engine.
Download will be about 30 megs. Feel free to take a look.
And FEATURE the engine on your wesbite.
Note about Screenshots:
Necropolis screenshots - This is a Quake3 online multiplayer game that has been around since 2002.
outdoor scenes are not dynamically lit.
Terrain shots are to showcase quality of terrain tetxures.
Thank you for your time
Jet3D v2.1.1 release today (w/ new DX9 driver)
