Impressive Java 3d engine. It has texture filtering too, wow!

short and retro, but it has something sweet about it.

Ppl at the pardey didn't noticed immediately it was a java demo ... nice work!

I didn;t like the scenes much. COuld have been more interesting there - the textures too. But the 3d engine looks very nice for java, the music was good, and the metaballs scene somehow rocked :)

is java an excuse for having a slow engine?

Pretty decent, very '95
(as in: In 1995, this would have been a great demo)
Are the symbols on the cube from 'transformers' ? i am sure i did already see them, a long time ago...

I think bohemiq is on the right track, and hope they are working on something like
'baguette.onze ' :)

If the product is .Java, it ain't white.

yeah, next time please watch the texturing and port the lot to cpp. i hate low framerates and resolutions.

Thanks for your comments.
I have prepared a 'lo-fi' script, which you can download here. Replace the original croissant9.xml in the croissant9-directory with this one, to disable specular lighting and bilinear filtering.
This should improve performance quite a bit on 'low end' machines.

If it still isn't fast enough, you can freely change the resolution either on the commandline or in the html (the width and height fields in the applet-tag), or even scale down the textures in the croissant9-directory.

I hope that people with PCs of less than 2 GHz will be able to enjoy the demo aswell now.

some parts are really slow, but some are totally realistic :) i'll give a thumb up for the overall impression being pleasant however :)

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!!! Were are the other comments here??? Scheisse!!! They are lost because of the HD crash perhaps? Now this totally sucks, because this was the funniest flames mixed with technical stuff I have ever read on Pouet! :P

the engine rules, the prod is nice and fun as it intended to be. Croissants 9s for everyone!!

I like this prod... runs well, looks damned good, nice to see a software graphics engine these days :) Only problem is that it loads slowly. If you can't speed that up, you should add a status bar.

mucho impressed.. that's softwarerendering? i ever wanted to write an alike engine in assembler, now that i know some tricks like fast filtering and so on.. but this was done 2003 and in java.. prod rules, even by the name.. (except gfx)

scali if you're around :)
Same as Guardian : where is the fix ?
Wouldn't run at the default resolution, so I ran it at 640x480 instead. The music was all messed up (I hope it's not supposed to be that way).
Nice to see some software rendering stuff though.

Well, I'm not sure why it won't work on some systems.
I've not run it in a long time, but I've just tried it under Vista Home Premium with the Sun JVM, version 1.6.0_07 (latest currently available), and it worked fine, with music and everything (the croissant9.ogg music file is included in the croissant9 directory so you can play it and see what it's supposed to sound like).

Sounds like it's a configuration issue... It doesn't use the right path (file://Users)... Could be that you cannot run Java applets from the desktop or something (security issues?). Try putting it in a different directory... Perhaps just C:\croissant9 or something.

You could also try to run it in a browser with the included demo.html. Running as an applet works slightly differently from a standalone application.
