2 posts in this topic

I have just completed a fully automated 3D Engines list. http://www.excentrax.co.za/3d/ This site is only for use to you guys that want to register your 3D Engine on the internet on a site where you can create your own UserID and add as much engines as you can crank out to your userid You can even rename your userid whenever. You must use your email address as your userid. Firstly it makes userid's unique and your userid is directly mapped to your address where you can be contacted. There are also a few other features I didn't mention here. I think it's worth checking out for all you 3D Programmers out there. I would also appreciate it if you could add a link to this page from yours as I have grave trouble promoting the site. The site does not have much content yet, but it will be upto you guys to make the site great Jacques. http://www.excentrax.co.za/3d/ Edited by - jkrige on 7/7/00 3:00:13 AM
