At the end of 2001 I started hosting the Genesis3D website. Since that time a lot has transpired. It is now time for this website to either be passed on to someone else, or, die due to age. You figure Genesis3D 1.1 was released on Nov 16, 1999. It is now over 7 years later. That is a long time for a game engine which was designed before graphic cards really knew what T&L hardware was.
If you wish to host the Genesis3D website and keep it around, contact me at LightningTH at GMail dot Com. I would have you email the webmaster account for this website but the mail server is having trouble.
I do not know how much longer I will continue to host this site. It could be months, it could be until the domain expires. I just see so little activity on the forum now and the engine is showing it's age that it should be put to rest at some point.
The staff of Novus Delta, and Genesis3D would like to take a moment and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy the new release of Genesis3D and may the new year bring you good fortune.
WildTangent makes a statement about so called 'hate games' developed using Genesis3D
In an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Report: "Growing Proliferation of Racist Video Games Target Youth on the Internet," there is reference to "an anti-Semitic and racist game created using the powerful open-source game engine Genesis 3D...." We at WildTangent would like to make our relationship to the Genesis3D open source project clear to any interested parties.
In October 1999, WildTangent acquired the technology assets of Eclipse Entertainment, the maker of Genesis3D game engine. Before the acquisition, Eclipse made the source code for the Genesis3D engine available to the open source development community. After the acquisition WildTangent turned ownership of the open source effort over to the community and ceased to have further involvement with that effort.
