Description says it uses Le3d with AMMX optimizations for the rendering. Any more info on Le3d available?

Ah nice to see a generalized 3d solution for weak systems, although I suspect the C++ code, although being easy to port, may not be the most efficient solution for the Vamp? I understand some AMMX optimizations were done...
@Alain, where do you see wazp3d fit into the big picture?

Hello
>where do you see Wazp3D

Until I got my hand on Vampire standalone nothing will happen...

Also as I already said 3D rendering will need perhaps (say) 20 instructions per pixel.
So any enhancements in AMMX that will make  do "more things per instruction" will be a good thing

There is in this page some infos about that topic and a soft rendered Cow3D example that can serve as a base to test AMMX optimisations

I wish you a happy V4 for 2019 :-) Also we need to see that "core 3+ rudimentary 3D solution" and can we do some warp3D there, and then could some engines use w3d or  standardized AmigaOS software.

AMMX is already enhanced and I believe cant do much more.

  True, after we know more about this "GPU" it will make more sense to start talking about how to optimize the code properly.

Read this thread:

Demo needs a specific, non-standard P96 modeline defined, namely 384x216 TrueColor+Alpha.

Ok. I add this p96 mode. Now the first part with 2d scolling text is ok. But i've problem with 3d part.

See this

Any suggestions?

Hi, Alessandro, I was away from my A600 for the past few days.

I really don't know what the problem is with your config. However, to be completely honest, this demo is a real PITA to get it working and it doesn't justify all the effort to make it run... It's slow and not very impressive at all. One good thing about it is Virgill's music, but that's about it.

That being said, I've recorded this off my GOLD2.11 V600, but I don't know if it helps you at all. You can see my P96 values for this exotic mode required by this demo. I also tried to monitor its DOS/ROM calls with Snoopdos, but it's not working at all when SD is active in the background. Maybe it needs a specific math libs version or a specific ixemul.library. I have no clue what causes problems on your machine. But, seriously - this is a very average demo that's not worth the effort and it does not even remotely show the possibilities of 080/RTG.
