    The incredible 3D homebrew project Fandian has been updated. This was previously known as Sonic and sports one hell of a 3D engine that would make some professional DS developers jealous!

    Basically, we know the DS can handle respectable 3D. So give us more fully-3D games Nintendo! [​IMG]

    The only listed change was:

    "The sonic rom was built on devkitARM 23b and the Fandian one was built using devkitARM 24 with the updated libfat, arm7, etc."

    The readme doesn't seem to have anything for the newest versions besides that. Here's a list which may have some things included in the new version:

    - more collision improvements
    - tile cracks (matrix imprecision)
    - interactive tile stitching
    - bad stylus input jumping
    - new source model format
    - simple camera/world collision
    - data trees & hardware call lists
    - constant code optimization
    - native DS texture compression
    - player/creature transitions
    - texture transparency
    - alpha level polygons
    - animation transitions
    - per-view point lights
    - proper data/state management
    - silhouette shadow volumes
    - smarter camera tracking

    Dam, that looks sexy I wished it worked on my M3Real. I guess I'll try it one my EZV when I'm sober.

    At this point, it's just a basic 3D test engine using some assets from Neverwinter Nights apparently. No game yet.
