... textures angles as that doesn't appear to work. Nevertheless that's because the references aren't made in the egg file to the textures rather than pi3d. It would be interesting to know how the triceratops model was made. I think the chicken converter probably did a better job but it means using ...

If you really want to write high speed games, you will need something more efficient, like a C-compiler, and direct control of the OpenGL ES library if you want to write 3D games.

Re: cycling between JPEGs

Its probably not python as such that is the cause of the slow performance. Remember the X server isn't accelerated. Maybe someone working on Pi3D can comment here. You may have better luck using an opengl pipline, and loading a texture onto a flat surface. You can do this in pygame as well. ...
