Vigilante 3d Graphics
Software Renderer Viewer3ds

Download Viewer3ds here.

This is where it all started.  The initial software renderer started out as a simple donut and proceeded from there.  I haven't worked on it for ages so its current state is whatever I left it as when I was doing some performance tuning.  Lighting does not work on 3d studio meshes and the performance counters don't work anymore.

Some 3ds meshes will not load, jpegs are not supported and lighting and diffuse color (vertex color) are disabled by default.

When I find some time I'll be updating this app.
