Animated 3D model

4. Dezember 2019

I did my first 3D animation. I optimized my 3D-engine with the Shell-Sort algorithm. So many renderings in a short time are possible. This was done in one hour. The screens were combined in an animated GIF.

While heavily experimenting with SID and assembly for future slideshows with background-music, i enhanced this graphic with a SID tune. For plus/4 (and emulators) with SID-cards.

Commodore VIC-20 rendering experiments

7. September 2019

I made a Commodore VIC-20 version of my 3D Engine. Written in Basic 2.0, using the Super-Expander for the graphics and the most possible RAM-Expansion which leaves 28 K for BASIC. Resolution is 160×160 pixels.

For comparison the same model on a plus/4:

7th place at AROK 2019 in the wild competition!

4. August 2019

My friend MMS from the plus/4 scene came up with the idea of making a slide show und do an entry for the wild competition at AROK 2019 (3. August in Hungary). He made the slide show, i provided the the graphics from my new 3D-Basic engine. Finally we got the 7th place and a big applause during the presentation. Not bad for the first time!

If you reverse the colors (line 40) you get nice filled polygons.

3D Engine works on the commodore 128

24. Juni 2019

Today i tested the 3D-engine in VICE for the commodore 128. It works without any changes. Good news for C 128 fans. Since it has 128 kB RAM even more complex renderings should be possible.

3D Engine Video Tutorial

22. Juni 2019

In this small video tutorial i explain how to make your own 3D objects for the engine in Blender. I decided to speak German, but you will also understand most things just by watching. Have fun, just be creative and show your work if you like. I will post it here in my blog.

3D Engine (Basic 3.5)

20. Juni 2019

My first release of  the 3D engine.

Consider it as an experiment, play around with the objects and the code. Improve it and port it to all plattforms you want. Thank you all for your support and nice words, which inspired me to get this project so far.
