     Yaarq is a Java3D demo and framework which demonstrates the use of Java3D for state-of-the-art 3D game programming and allows developers to jumpstart their own Java3D projects. Highlights of Yaarq include geometry animation, texture transparency,lightmapping, bumpmapping, environmental mapping, particle systems, lens flares, overlays, sound and more. Yaarq is fully documented, the demo being designed as a tutorial on how to use the framework. Yaarq comes with a batch file for the windows environment. To run the demo, please make sure you have the latest versions of JRE and J3D installed (you can get them from Then modify the path in the batch file to point to the bin directory of your Java installation and start. Yaarq has been tested with the OpenGL version of the J3D API, using a number of GeForce type cards. Though the program will probably run on a number of other cards and configurations, I lack the ressources to do full compatibility testing.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
