Just wondering if there is any plan to convert this to OS4. A1 seems like the
ideal platform considering the graphics requirements.

As soon as W3D is available to common users I guess.

I have Heretic II for my A1200 with PPC accelerator. A fantastic conversion, but I could only get to a certain point in the game before the frame rate became too stuttery.
Still, I'll be able to play it properly on my AmigaOne!

But do we actually need an OS 4 version? With the WarpOS/3D wrapper for OS4 it will probably be like playing a native OS 4 version. That is the entire idea with a WarpOS/3D wrapper isn´t it? Being able to use WarpOS apps without having to port them to OS 4 I mean.

With Warp3D V4 adding support for single-cycle multitexturing, anisotropic filtering, support for 32 bit rendering targets on the Voodoo 4/5, I would say YES

Not to mention that the current alpha build does a "tutorial2" timerefresh of over 300 FPS

But don't ask any specifics. I don't have any idea yet how updates will be handled and such, nor when it will be available or anything like that.

I don't understand a word of that, but it sounds GREAT

(Errr - is it anything to do with me being able to play Heretic II on my AmigaOne?)

The weekend is coming up. I wouldn't mind seeing some news posted with the words: "AOS 4 update 3 available at Hyperions webbsite. This update includes......."

I can see that you have no power over the release but...... just wanted to say that it would be very nice

Every update allmost feals like a new version of the OS. I'm really looking forward to this one. Thanks, thanks, thaaaaanks for the work that you (the whole OS 4 team) are doing

Sounds wonderfull to my eyes (ears too:)
I bought it when i had cvppc for my a4000 before
the ppc died. I was on the last level (last boss)
and have the save saved on my a1 so one day i can
kill that boss.
However now when you talk about the cps and all the
nice extra stuff for warp3d v4 maybe i should
play it from the beginning again :)

I just cant wait :)

Thanks sgm,

y_a = y_0 + \frac{y_1-y_0}{u_1-u_0}(u-u_0) \,\!
y_b = y_2 + \frac{y_3-y_2}{u_3-u_2}(u-u_2) \,\!
y = y_b + \frac{y_b-y_a}{v_2-v_0}(v-v_0) \,\!

That's all I needed to know
