|News: New mode 7 extension!
News posted 15th May, 2002 by Rikus
this is interesting, in less then a month, Marcello is planning to release
a new version of his mode 7 extension called: Mode7 ex. Here is some spiffy
info right from Marcello: Along with the
core rebuild, many previous bugs have been fixed. In Mode 7 ex you can
import and edit all of your images directly in MMF, and they will be compiled
into your application. One of the most exciting new features in Mode 7
ex is integrated Voxel support. In Mode 7 ex you can load in a grayscale
image (either internally stored or from a file) as a 'height map'. This
means you can create hills, mountains, valleys, rough terrain, slopes,
and more! Mode 7 ex also features several new advanced render options.
Well that sure sounds exciting, could we be making Mario Card clones in
the near future? We will keep you updated on this exciting new extension.
