MD5 Reader 2

This site is under construction

NEW! Currently I have not enought time to spend on this project, then I am looking for serious 3D developers interested in working on this project, under my supervision, to complete it and support all the specs of the MD5 format. Some months ago I also started a MD5 Reader 2 port for GalaxyEngine a Mac OS X and iOS 3D engine providing also editing tools.

Visit the page of the new reference model for MD5 Reader 2, and download the MD5 Fellow (v. 0.1)!
Help, suggestions, critiques from animators, to animate it, and modellers to help fix it, if needed, is welcome.

For an archive version of the MD5 Reader 2 (outdated), please visit EnderCG.

Up to date version of MD5 Reader 2 is available only through anonymous CVS, using the command:

cvs login

and then

cvs -z3 co -P md5reader2

For more informations about CVS use and CVS web based browsers, please visit CVS.
