Paolo said that for a port of VGP3 to be possible we'd at least need OpenGL 2.0 which we have via GL4ES.

VGP2 is one of the best games on MorphOS, really enjoyable and the most modern simulator on our platforms. Especially with HD textures and when played with a real racing wheel controller instead of mouse/kb. I would love to see VGP3 too!

Thanks for the post. I always knew there was something special about the VGP 3d engine. Pun accidental. It was just too fast and smooth. This confirms it was optimised for Amiga hardware. A real Amiga 3d game. I wondered if a VGP simulator was too specific and perhaps another type of arcade racing game woud have suited a bigger audience using the same engine. Also, other game genres such as FPS I also see could have beneift from this, given they are slower paced. Since a racing game needs constant action. Hard on resources.

I recall also an interview, where it was said regarding chunky against planar, that planar could do more than it was thought it could against chunky. And that planar was best of all. A strange thing to claim even back then. I don't know if that was Paolo Cattani.
