Web design development and web hosting by sulaco web development  Sulaco Web Development

I can't believe I haven't updated Sulaco since July :eek:

The reason for this is that I have started my own web development company (Called Sulaco Web Development), and it has been taking up quite a bit of time.

Sulaco web dev specializes in Web Design, Development, windows hosting and linux hosting.

We have also recently started offering Search engine optimization and marketing  on top of our other offerings.

And have also recently finished a system to do bulkmail and email marketing for our clients.

Our latest offering is the FastSite Content management system built specifically for a personal website  or a  small to medium business website .

 SA Game Dev site gets a face lift.

Its been a long time coming, but sagamedev now has a new look and I must say it looks awesome!
Nicely node guys!

Berakah Quad biking weekend.

This past weekend we decided to test out the new quad trailer and go to the berakah eco trail  for an outride.

It turned out to be one of the best quad experiences we've have had in a long time!!

The quad track is layed out in such a way that everyone who gives it a try, will have a good time.

The obstacles are scary but fun, and for those with a weak heart there is always an alternative route.

Tacha spent most of the time behind the camera, so she isn't in any of the shots, but she went wherever I did :)

Rage Game Engine, screen shots, code, open source

 The Rage 3D game engine is now Open Source

For the last 2.5 years I have been working at a game development studio as lead on a game engine called Rage 3D written in Delphi.

The company decided that they where moving the focus to c++, so I resigned, and was given the opportunity to take the engine with me.

Rage 3D is now an Open Source engine on Sulaco, and will be distributed under the license on the RageGL Subsite

For a more indepth view of the engine click here

You can also view screenshots of the engine in action.

The source for the rage will be available in the next week or so on

 Another hobby

I recently bought these two quads, and decided that I might aswell create a website to go with them :)

For those of you that are interested click here

On the game development front :

Work on RageGL is progessing at a slow but steady pace, and is the main reason for the lack of updates on sulaco.

We are currently testing our GLSL cradle, and will move onto the OH SO loooong buglist after that.

 Tangent Bumpmapping using nVidia's Cg

It has been a while since my last update, the game seems to be taking up most of my free time at the moment, but is progressing nicely.

This project shows how to use Cg to implement Tangent Space Bump mapping on models.

The current version only handles Quads, but with a little sweat, you can easily Generate the right matrices for Triangles also.

The original c++ version done by Søren Dreijer (Halloko) can be found at Thanx for all your help dude :)

This Code also uses the VectorGeometry.pas unit from

Please note: I have included all the relevant units, and dll's, but its always a good idea to look at the originating sites to get the latest versions
