- you can again move one tank with the arrow keys and shoot with the space key
- i''ve upgraded the game to the newer DirectX 7 drivers. That makes the game more compatible with newer 3d hardware.

- collision detection.

tank 3 beta 4 screenshot Beta 4:
- you can again move one tank with the arrow keys and shoot with the space key
- exlosions have been greatly improved. Light effects for explosions and bullets have been added.
- Evening scene ambient light.
- not speed-optimized yet, so I suggest a 3d-accelerator card and at least a Celeron processor.

downloadDownload Tank 3 beta 4

tank 3 beta 3 screenshot Beta 3:
- in this demo you can move one of four tanks (use arrow keys) and shoot the others (space key)
- with small explosions (will be greatly improved in the next versions)
- the turrets are moving in two directions now
- the graphics are at 800x600 and bilinear filtered, so you should use a 3d-accelerator card (still works without...)
- terrain textures change when you drive over the terrain

downloadDownload Tank 3 beta 3

Beta 2:
This beta version shows a tank, which is moving (use the arrow keys!) and another one aiming at it. The graphics are currently not very detailed and the resolution is low for testing purposes. It will get better in the next versions!

DirectX test:
This is a program to test DirectX, lighting and Tank 3.0''s 3d-objects format. It shows a spinning tank with light effects of a low evening sun (how romantic...).

tank 3 beta 1 terrain Beta 1 with benchmarks:
This is my first attempt to get terrain graphics. This demo uses direct GDI graphics, not DirectX. The demo shows just the terrain. Additionally, benchmarks of other programming languages (Delphi) are included. (some of that programs don''t work)
