There are currently two items available for download from this site that may be
of interest to programmers, particularly those interested in OpenGL®.
The first item is Version 4.1.1 of the GLE32 library. The biggest
additions in 4.n are a GLSL Shader class, a
MilkShape3D Model loader/rendering class, and limited OpenGL extensions
support. This version is lacking the classes derived from Linas Vepstas' original
extrusion library; an updated version of these may be released at a future date.
Other changes are outlined on the GLE32 Home Page
Visual Studio 2005 source code and project files are available, as are the compiled
static libraries and source code for a demo program illustrating use of several
classes. Visit the GLE32 Home Page
for more information.
The second item is a set of skybox
tools, consisting of two separate programs. The first program,
the SkyBox Stuffer, takes 6 images
(or optionally, 5, omitting the ground) and packages them in a single file; the
second, the SkyBox Viewer, opens
files created by the Stuffer and places the observer at the center of a cube, appropriately
textured with the skybox images.
Visual Studio source code and project files are included in each program's download
package. The SkyBox Stuffer is written in C# and uses the .NET 2.0 runtime; the
Viewer is written in unmanaged C++. There is also a sample skybox for your amusement.
