info: OpenGL 84+ is a version of OpenGL that draws 3D primitives in 4 level grayscale in a 3D environment.

I've almost got perfect squares working perfectly, at 360 rotations

Wow that sounds epic!  :D What kind of primitives are you supporting?

o.O
How can you torture us like this???????? Moar info!!
Nice! Will it have any shading, textures, or just single color polygons?

well, only really triangles, squares, and rectangles, but with those three you can make pretty much anything else (and from there I can add in some more shapes later, along with 3D cubes and such)

I do plan to have lighting work, I think it actually won't be that hard :P at least in proportion to the rest

EDIT: if I ever do include textures, it'll be a later on this, since textures are hard to code and very slow

Sounds epic! :D This is in asm i assume?  Whats your current benchmark as to polygons per second?

Yeah, I'm making it as an Axe Axiom :)

by benchmark, you mean by what I expect?

no i mean how quickly your routine can draw a polygon right now :) And thats awesome as an axiom ^^

to tell the truth, I haven't even really thought about the speed yet x.x haven't tested it yet

though I can assume >40 fps, because rotating the square 360 degrees one degree per frame took around 7 seconds ( so yes, somewhat slow, but I'm sure I could optimize later)

Are you using precomputed sin tables and the like?  What kind of accuracy are you using?  Floating point?  Fixed point?  How many bytes?

Your sin/cos routines use degrees O_o? (I know axe, at least, uses binary degrees, period=256)

Anyway, sounds cool, can't wait for screeeenies :D

40 fps is quite good, though that is only with [pauses to count up polygons] twelve polygons. Also, are you using depth sorting or a z buffer for this?
Also, I noticed you changed the topic to z80gl.

360 is transferred to a 256 degree lookup table ^-^ that way you can do true math to it.  though if I take it out I could really add some speed... what should I do?

EDIT: and fb39ca4 it uses a Z index that is used for calculations like size and such but then the coordinates are transferred to X-Y at the last second :)

If he uses precomputed sin tables, it would be less of an issue, but probably still more optimized with binary degrees, hmmmm

EDIT: And thats with 1 polygon fb39ca4?  He said only a single square

EDIT2: And for this i would go for speed speed speeeed
