Hyperion Entertainment changes status of Warp3D V4
We would like to inform you that after extensive deliberation, Hyperion Entertainment has decided to upgrade the status of Warp 3D V4 from a freeware product to a commercial OEM product which will offered to Amiga hardware developers for a moderate license fee.
This decision was prompted by two major reasons:
This is not only not in the interest of Amiga users but it is also not in the interest of hardware producers and resellers who rely on the availability of Warp 3D drivers to successfully market their Amiga hardware.
Hyperion Entertainment fully understands that the company has a responsibility towards the Amiga community including the hardware producers because of its control over the Warp 3D API and no attempt has ever been made or will be made to exploit this position unfairly.
We have already successfully negotiated agreements with Matay and DCE regarding Warp3D V4 support for the Voodoo 3 on their respective PCI hardware. We are therefore happy to report that Voodoo 3 drivers for these PCI solutions will be available shortly.
A similar proposal was made to Elbox but so far we have not received any reaction.
Users considering purchase of a PCI solution for Amiga and who are interested in high-performance 3D graphics should investigate the availability of Warp3D drivers prior to making their decision to opt for one or the other PCI solution.
It should also be noted that Warp3D will remain free for end users. (ps)
