Here is a useful tool worth checking out.

D3DGear is an advanced utility for Windows DirectX & OpenGL games. The cool thing about this software is that it automatically measures a 3D game’s frame rate and displays it on screen. It allows you to customize font color, size and position of the frame rate display.

It is easy to use as it can capture 3D game screenshots with the press of a hotkey, and automatically save screenshots into a file. You can define screenshot hotkey, save file format and save file directory. One other thing I love about it, is that D3DGear also can record 3D games to movie.

In the recently released version, the bug that didn’t allow D3DGear to work with the game Shaiya has been fixed.

Blots – New take on an old classic

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

blots.jpgBlots is an addictive game that has a concept which will be very familiar to those of you who remember “Lemmings“.

You guide your troop of “blots” along lines which you draw, in order to guide them to their exit safely. But the lines fade away after a while, so watch out! There is also other things such as being able to draw a line between fire and bombs in order to create a “fuse” and therefore blow holes in walls. You may also burrow through some types of ground in some levels.

This is a cool little game that’s sure to please (or frustrate!) fans of that old classic game “Lemmings”.

Have a go and see for yourself!
