Nostalgia time : ietx2 old (buggy) beta iso for download

Written by cafealpha no comments
After making some cleanup in my development folders, I found an old archive file
It is dated 2007 June 20, and contains a very early version of ietx2, which is an adaptation of yeti3D engine to Saturn.
At that time, I was using a PentiumIV processor and 80GB IDE hard disk in order to run sh-elf-gcc provided by SaturnOrbit ... very nostalgic times ... but I definitely prefer nowadays for Saturn development

Iso file can be found >>> here <<<.
(No, there are no sources available, because I didn't kept archives of sources at that time.)

Please don't waste a CD-R for this. You can try on yabause, or just look at screenshot and say "hey, very ugly stuff" however.

ietx2 beta screenshot : not enough time to draw last quads in VDP1 list, hence the garbage on foreground.

ietx2 beta screenshot : example of incorrect rendering when quads coordinates exceed 16 bits range.

Present version

You can find current version (ietx2) and sources of my Yeti3D adaptation here (dated 2011 April 19).
Also, there are videos of ietx2 available below. Click on the links to display them on youtube.

Future (?) version

I'm still maintaining sources of ietx2.
I renamed project name to ietx3 (yeah, I'm not very original when choosing project names ), and now use a lite version of Yeti3D PRO engine ... "lite" means original, minus a lot of features, in order to keep a decent frame rate, and fitting to Saturn resources.
You can find some videos (binaries are not released, sorry) on my youtube channel :
