Actually, five choices:

In some cases you may want use polygon_offset in OpenGL or its DX equivalent depth bias(also available in DX9).

Well ok maybe we should rethink that design, on german periodic tables the upper left number stands for the effective nuclear charge.



Xe-Engine is a javascript based engine, so high-performance quite relative, in this case "high-performance" compared to our (mostly future)competitors but I think(no scientific benchmarks on this) we're even able to outperform some of the native engines by utilizing some clever tricks in our rendering pipeline.


The screenshot you see on the website or in a smaller fashion in the picture in the post renders at 30FPS

on an Intel HD4000 at 1920x1080 with FXAA, two directional lights of which one has

cascaded shadow mapping with four cascades at each 1024x1024.

Its just to resemble the periodic table thing :)

EDIT: Seem like it dosent warn you after all... i was mistaken. That's a weird quirk of the language tho, assigning a value returning true, i never understood why c++ allowed that in the first place.


This is not a quirk of the language, its only returning true if the assigned value is truthy, this allows for constructs like the following that are allowed in almost all languages i've ever used:

while (mesh = imaginaryMeshStack.pop()) {
// do stuff with "mesh" here

EDIT: "returning true" is the wrong wording, "evaluates to true" fits better here.

It would be nice to see some actual "gameplay" with it to see the real performance since the "commercial" looks rather posed to me.

Also I'm not a lawyer but using all those company logos without any disclaimer note seems quite risky to me.
