Jesse has released an updated version of Mandelbulb 3D - v1.8.3!
Download it from FractalForums at: www.fractalforums.com/index.ph…

In Jesse's own words;

"Please read the textfile in the archive for a short documentation.
If this version does not work with Win2000, i can only say sorry, dunno why!

CAUTION:
USE ONLY SAME PROGRAM VERSIONS TO CONTINUE ANIMATIONS OR BIG RENDERINGS DUE TO COLOR OR LIGHTING CHANGES! ALSO FORMULA UPDATES CAN CHANGE RENDERINGS!

What is new in version 1.8:

-  New compiler, new look.
  -  Transparency option in postprocessing, amount of it in object colors.
  -  Stereo function is more accurate.
  -  New diffuse map options for object coloring.
  -  Saving also the internal image buffer along with M3I.
  -  Addition option for lighting like intensity for all lights and background
     image, usage of downscaled background image for ambient color.
  -  Drag&drop Png files with internal parameters and textfiles with txt pars
     on the main window to open the parameters.
  -  Added euler angles of camera rotation for editing.
  -  Direct value input in the navigators parameter adjust panel by clicking on
     the value.
  -  Sphere and Cylinder IFS formulas with inside radius.
  -  New formulas from Luca.

Update version 1.8.1:
 -  Fixed height of new category-panels with nondefault screen DPI settings.
 -  SSAOr count value does only displayed '1'... fixed.

Update version 1.8.2:
 -  Issues with reflections and pos-lights fixed.
 -  Bonus parameter; " 6 AM - Torii temple.m3p " using some new stuff.

***Update version 1.8.3*** :w00t:
Added a lot of new formulas by DarkBeam for the new year 2013.
Added toricaleggs test parameter plus AboxShapes-Misty.m3p and spineJulia.m3p.

Thanks and have fun!"

Hi Joseph.:wave: Can't imagine why you would lose all your formulas when updating M3D. :confused: When you unzip the formulas, do you have WinZip set to 'overwrite and replace'? This will update all relevant formulas with the newer version. Alas, unless you keep older formula versions in a seperate dedicated folder, you may find that newer versions do give slightly different results - just the nature of M3D I'm afraid. :nod:
Older versions of M3D with formulas can still be downloaded from FractalForums, but darkbeams 'newfmlas.zip' is constantly updated, so older versions cannot be saved, unless you D/L and rename the zip file for later reference.
Hope this helps some? :O_o:

I actually use 7-zip mostly- and it's not exactly that the formulas disappear but that when I open the programa and look under the headings very few are available.

Have you updated your 'initial directories' in M3D? Go to the 'IniDir'
tab at the top left of M3D's main screen; there you can tell M3D where
to find all relevant files, including formulas. You'll need to restart
M3D for the updated directories to be activated. :nod:
