Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v126.96.36.199 testfile.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:[link]
What's new in the 188.8.131.52 test version:
In Jesse's own words:
"Some beta testing is needed because of compiler upgrading,
the changes belong to the intern light model, more options for the diffuse map,
panorama camera mode, stereo options.
Some issues should be solved, many new ones to find!
It is just the executable, you can take all directories with files from the previous
version if you need them, or adjust the ini-dirs to the existing ones.
Notice: the new stereo options must be used from the same starting parameters
to work properly, I will change this for an easier handling. For now you have to undo
the parameters or reload default ones.
Notice2: in version 1.797 I changed it to an absolute behaviour, but there are some
issues with hard shadows and/or reflections that are not properly calculated yet!
This is a subject to change, be aware that it is only a beta.
Please report any other issues!
1.797 update: light options now seperated with adjustments, some navi changes with
adjustment of iteration count for formulas. "
Please bear in mind that this is just the executable, so if you are
installing Mandelbulb 3D for the first time, you should download
