Jax 3D

Jax3D began as a project to write the fastest software triangle rendering engine possible. This project was coded in 100% MMX-enhanced assembly language, and hand-tuned using the Pentium's performance counting registers. After achieving a speed of 500,000+ 25-pixel triangles per second on a Pentium 225MHz PC, a 3D object transformation engine was added to transform and display 3D objects. A few months later the idea emerged for the Jax 3D demo. After a winter's worth of design and coding, the initial draft of Jax 3D was up and running! Over a year of sporadic coding episodes have given Jax 3D numerous enhancments, fixes, and improvements.
    Jax 3D Features:
  • Direct support for 3D Spex LCD shutter glasses
  • 1000 Morphing Points of Light
  • 6-Dimensional Color-shifting Plasma Background


System Requirements
Jax 3D requires a minimum configuration of:
  • Intel or compatible Pentium or better CPU with MMX support
  • 16 Megabytes RAM
  • DOS 6.00 or better, or Windows 95/98
  • Super VGA compatible display adapter with VESA VBE 2.1 or better support and 2 megabytes or more RAM
Note: Jax 3D will not run with EMM386.EXE loaded in the CONFIG.SYS file.

Special: Jax 3D is a well-structured and documented assembly language program. If enough requests are received, Fascination Software will release a "Jax 3D Development Kit" to allow users with little or no knowledge of assembly language to create their own palettes, objects, scenes, and morphing effects.
