WELCOME TO THE FIRST OFFICIAL VECTOR-DEMO BY RAY THE KILLER ! IT MAY BE A BIT LATE, BUT I HAD TROUBLE GETTING A MUSIC AND TO WRITE A SCROLLTEXT... >>> THIS 3D-SYSTEM WAS FINISHED ON 25TH OF JULY IN 1990 >>> IT SUPPORTS 3 DIFFERENT TYPES OF VECTOR OBJECTS - 1. WIRE-FRAME-OBJECTS - 2. HIDDEN-LINE-OBJECTS - 3. VECTOR-BALL-OBJECTS <<<           BUT NOW THE CREDITS: CODING BY RAY THE KILLER ***** LOGO BY DISKEATER ***** SCROLL-CHARS BY ??? ***** OKTALYZER-MUSIC BY ESPRIT            OUR GREETINGS GO TO ALL OUR CONTACTS !!!                   BEFORE I WILL TELL YOU SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE ROUTINES, THERE ARE YOUR POSSIBLITIES TO MANIPULATE THE GFX...            USE RIGHT MOUSE-BUTTON TO CHANGE THE OBJECTS >>> ON THE NUMERIC PAD USE 1,4,7 TO INCREMENT THE X,Y,Z-ROTATION-SPEED - 2,5,8 TO STOP X,Y,Z-ROTATION - 3,6,9 TO INCREMENT X,Y,Z-SPEED >>> USE CURSOR-KEYS TO ZOOM AND FOR TRANSLATION <<<             OK - NOW THE LAMERS AMONG YOU ARE BUSY FOR A WHILE - AND FOR THE WINNERS I GONNA EXPLAIN THE DETAILS ABOUT THESE VECTORS.....    EACH OBJECT SHOWN IN THIS DEMO IS SPECIFIED BY A STRUCT - THIS STRUCT CONTAINS A SUB-STRUCT WHICH IS THE SAME FOR ALL KIND OF OBJECTS (LIKE THE NODE-STRUCT IN MANY EXEC-STRUCTS), AND BEHIND IT SOME DATA WHICH DIFFERS FROM OBJECT TO OBJECT (I.E. POINTER TO BALL-STRUCT, AREA-STRUCT...)          THE POINTERS TO THE OBJECT-STRUCTS ARE STORED IN AN ARRAY, WHICH IS TERMINATED BY A NULL-POINTER - SIMPLE OR WHAT ?         WELL AND THE ROUTINES FOR ROTATION, PROJECTION AND CONSTRUCTION ARE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THE TYPE OF THE CURRENT OBJECT BY ITS TYPE, WHICH IS DEFINED BY THE FIRST BYTE OF AN OBJECT-STRUCT (LIKE THE NODE-TYPES IN EXEC !)              ALTHOUGH THIS SYSTEM MAY SEEM VERY SLOW - I MANAGED TO USE FAST ALGORITHMS:      THE VECTOR-BALL-KOORDINATES ARE SORTED WITH THE POWERFUL > QUICKSORT < ! THE ONLY BREAK IN THIS DEMO IS THE SLOW (?) BLITTER WHICH DRAWS VECTOR-BALLS NOT VERY-FAST - IN DESPITE OF THE ILBM-FORMAT I USED (YOU KNOW THE BLITTER HAS TO BE STARTED ONLY ONCE !)            OK - I HOPE THIS SHORT EXPLANATION HAS GIVEN YOU A LITTLE VIEW INTO MY 3D-SYSTEM - BUT DO NOT TRY TO RIP IT ! I HAVE SEEN MANY COPIES OF IT IN OTHER LAMER-DEMOS - THEY DO NOT DERSERVE THE HONOUR !              WELL GUYZ - THIS WAS ALL - IF YOU LIKE OUR DEMOS THEN LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEW DEMOS *PULS(T)AR* AND THE SECOND MUSIC-DISK BY ESPRIT ! SEE YA.
