Glexcess 2: The progress

Well I know quite a few of you guys have been expecting GLEXCESS2 before now and I still get quite a few emails from members and visitors regarding the progress of bustard's glexcess2 as some of you know im really good friends with him and we share a love of great guitar players (who didnt spot the image of steve vai in the first one? tsk tsk). I have been meaning to post information on this earlier than today but ive been busy testing some hardware and between that and other real life situations its hard finding enough hours in the day.

Anyway for the remainder of you reading this and wondering what on earth im talking about, Paolo is the author of one of the most popular opengl benchmarks amongst the GFX community www.glexcess.com which was released many years ago. Unfortunately the follow up to this opengl test suite has been continually delayed and I have some information for you. Paolo has been really busy in his new job coding for a living ! He has assured me he is going to try and make an effort to get the benchmark out sometime this year but he can't make any promises on a firm date. Real life has caught up with Paolo and money earning work has taken the priority !

Some of you may remember we posted some pictures from an alpha version of this benchmark last year and although its not much compensation I can share some more unfinished images and design implementations from the forthcoming GLX2 - follow this thread into the forum. I have in my possession an unfinished version of the benchmark but as you would expect I cant share that.

Enjoy these pictures and hopefully, fingers crossed ill have some more good news for you as the year progresses. In the meantime be sure to check out the cool Driverheaven screensavers he made - follow the links in the top left front page nav section.

Tiribulus is on a distinguished road

This will definitely be welcome when completed. I've often stood in awe of this guy's many talents. BTW, I also share your love (Zardon) of truly great guitar players. I'll think of you when I go home tonight and watch my Deep Purple DVD with the mind numbing Steve Morse as their axe-man now.

I'm really looking forward to this one. I love watching these benchmark or demo reels like this. I have a pretty good collection of visual demos and still run GLexcess for the rush.

GLExcess is still my #1 method of OpenGL benchmarking. And just by looking at the new screens I think we can still call OpenGL the king of 3D. I look forward to the new GLE 2! And, maybe some nice OpenGL drivers from ATI perhaps?

Really looks beautiful and technologically up to date. I didn't know about the project until now. I must say that even the old one still looks nice, I'm surprised that no company offered to buy it. Btw, I ran it on my old PC and when I saw the score, I thought that I've won, but when I uploaded the score I saw that two guys were even worse! Cheats!!! How can you get lower than 388 in 640*480@16bit ?!
