no, is all done in software, newer s60 cellphons have openGLes on it, but still software, ngage 3d is all done on software as well, the deal is that series60 cellphones have a hell of overpowered processor

hello fellow Pinoy...the latest symbian SDK has examples for opengl ES (embedded system).

i recommend this if you're going to do everything in software:

it's free (donation-ware). else, if you have money, go for GAPI.

Skizz that soccer game looks very good!

Did you write that from scratch or build the game off an already developed 3D soccer engine.

Dont think i could do that. (well not right now!)

Mophun has some support for 3D built in if I'm not mistaken. Too bad there are only a handful that support Mophun.

Woody FX: It was written from scratch using the mophun 3D API which is effectively just a triangle renderer so I had to handle all the model creation and stuff. I did do a 2D soccer game but the 3D was significantly different (actual collision for starters).

shmoove: Things may be changing on that front. Synergenix recently announced a partnership with 3 (a 3G provider) to distribute high end games so things could be looking up for mophun.

That's good news (except for our porting team [grin]). They have a nice-looking platform going there.
