  • Revolution Engine ist die erste native und wohl beste Homebrew-3D-Gameengine für die Wii. Diese basiert direkt auf GX ohne irgendwelchen GL-Wrapper. Die Engine ist nur für die Wii entwickelt worden und ist vermutlich im Stande, die beste Homebrewgrafik zu generieren, die man je auf der Konsole gesehen hat.


    This project started in the early 2008, on a spanish forum. The idea was about creating a complete game engine that almost anyone can easily use to quickly create amazing games. Core ideas that have always lead this project are:

    * Ease of use
    * Taking advantage of hardware to improve performance
    * High quality graphics and effects

    First release of Revolution engine was in July 2008, with a very limited set of features. But as new versions arise, features get multiplied and engine becomes a useful tool, capable of so many things.


    Version 0.5.1

    * Better memory management
    * Added an advanced screenshot function
    * Added offClick onOver and offOver functions to buttons
    * Added getType, getParent, getNext and getChild functions to N2D and NODE classes
    * Improved directional lights constructor
    * new type(WINDOW) for 2d system
    * Added a custom expansion for 2d nodes and 3d nodes. This will allow more flexibility.
    * Increased flexibility of Tev system (now using more efficiently, same number of TEV stages let you do a little more)
    * Lighing speed boost, speed up the engine about 8%

    Version 0.5

    than a year later, a new version is released. With this version, the engine has been completely re-written and ported from C to C++. For the first time, this version of the engine comes with precompiled demos with source code that will help people learn how to use it faster. This version of the engine has been designed with flexibility and extensibility in mind. Users can create their own model format loaders and renderers, they're own materials etc...and they will be full compatible with the core engine.

    Version 0.4

    Revolution Engine 0.4 is the first mature version of the engine, and so the first version published here at wiibrew. It's being released through various steps for better feedback, and for creating a better result for the final release. This is why revolution engine 0.4 is released in alpha versions before being complete.
