Hi,
why don't you get VC++ ? The student versions are really cheap. If you've got that compiler, you can use many different free engines and will have less problems, optimized code, compatibility, a very good debugger, ...

Look at engines list site. I think here is somewere link to it (i don't remember). There is a tons of free/sharware/commercial 2d/3d engines.

Also, take a look at CrystalSpace crystal.linuxgames.com

about optimized code in VC++ - i don't think any compiler can make code faster and better than Watcom C++. Why all people forget about Watcom?

The VC code is better optimized than DJGPP, not better than Watcom, but Watcom is less supported and has an ugly IDE. And if I compare VC++ and DGJPP, this is a pro for VC++.

I heard from a reliable source that Microsoft (in typical Microsoft fashion) hired a couple of Watcom's top optimization gurus a few years ago, and I have heard of independent tests demonstrating that VC++ generates faster code now.

BUT, rather than starting a compiler war, let's get back to the original question. On the main page, click on Resources under the Directories section, and you will find a link to the 3D Engines List. You should be able to find something there.

ummm, ok

The 3D engines list is at http://www.cg.cs.tu-berlin.de/~ki/engines.html

If you can't find an engine there then give up looking.

Watcom is old, dead news - they've lost the edge. I remember the days when trying to beat Watcom's compiler at optimisation was incredibly difficult.

Watcom USED to have the fastest code generator, they no longer do; it's VC now people - that compiler is amazing.

Hubert: What VC can do better than Watcom? (i'm talking about last one, v11.0)
Also, it can be fully compatible with it.

Hi, i'm looking for a good 3d engine for DJGPP (DOS port of the gnu C/C++ compiler). If you know any one please post.

Thanks
