    "Version 5 is super fast and stable"

    March 11, 2014   |   By Brahammar

    Version: Octaga Player 2.1

    Pros

    Fast! Seamless browser integration as VRML plugin. Having tried both BS Contact and Cortona3D Viewer, Octaga player was the only one to properly run the 3D project i'm developing

    Cons

    Full version a bit expensive i think

    Summary

    At first i installed the 64 bit version which did not work with my 32bit browser, after figuring out that i got this up and running!

    Try it yourself! Here is my VRML 3d script - its really beautiful!

    #VRML V2.0 utf8

    PROTO SpinningBox [
    exposedField SFVec3f position 0 0 0
    exposedField SFColor color 0 1 0

    ]{
    Group {
    children [
    DEF myTr Transform {
    translation IS position
    rotation 0 0 1 0
    children [
    Shape {
    appearance Appearance {
    material Material {
    diffuseColor IS color
    }
    }
    geometry Box {
    size 6 6 6
    }
    }
    ]
    }


    DEF myTS TimeSensor {

    cycleInterval 5
    # loop TRUE
    # enabled FALSE
    }

    DEF myOI OrientationInterpolator {
    key [ 0 .25 .5 .75 1 ]
    keyValue [
    1 0 0 0
    1 1.57 0 1.57
    1 3.14 0 3.14
    1 4.71 0 4.71
    1 6.28 0 6.28
    ]
    }

    DEF touchSensor TouchSensor {

    }


    DEF s2 Script {
    eventIn SFBool startup
    field SFNode timer USE myTS
    field SFBool state FALSE
    url "vrmlscript:
    function startup(v) {


    state = TRUE;
    timer.enabled = true
    timer.loop = true


    }
    "
    }


    ]
    ROUTE myTS.fraction_changed TO myOI.set_fraction
    ROUTE myOI.value_changed TO myTr.rotation
    ROUTE touchSensor.isOver TO s2.startup

    }
    }

    #-------------------------------------------------------

    DEF group Transform {
    children []
    }

    DEF GroupTimer TimeSensor {
    cycleInterval 60
    loop TRUE
    }

    DEF GroupOrientation OrientationInterpolator {

    1 3.14 0 3.14
    1 4.71 0 4.71
    1 6.28 0 6.28

    ]
    }

    ROUTE GroupTimer.fraction_changed TO GroupOrientation.set_fraction
    ROUTE GroupOrientation.value_changed TO group.rotation

    Script {
    field SFNode group USE group
    url ["javascript:
    range = 100.0;
    steps = 15.0;
    c = 0;
    for (x= -range; x < range; x = x + (2*range / steps)) {
    for (y= -range; y < range; y = y + (2*range / steps)) {
    for (z= -range; z < range; z = z + (2*range / steps)) {
    r = (x + range) / (2 * range)
    g = (y + range) / (2 * range)
    b = (z + range) / (2 * range)
    newBox = Browser.createVrmlFromString('SpinningBox { position ' + x + ' ' + y + ' ' + z + '
    color ' + r +' ' + g + ' ' + b + ' }
    ');
    group.addChildren = newBox;

    }
    }
    }
    "]

    "Brilliant piece of software for x3D and VRML"

    December 25, 2007   |   By SteveUSA55

    Version: Octaga Player 2.1

    Pros

    I used the free version of Octaga Player until last week and I found out they are offering their Exporter from 3Ds max, if you pay for the player... So I did.... and am quite happy with the deal....now I can import to the player my 3Ds max's models and interact with them in Real TIme...

    Cons

    I would like all the functionality available on Octaga Professional for the Player.

    "Used to install ok. Now it's user hostile. (loser friendly?)"

    January 03, 2007   |   By gordonshummway

    Version: Octaga Player 2.1

    Pros

    It runs X3D + WRL

    Cons

    DO A RESTORE POINT!!!!

    Used to be the best viewer plugin, now they've poo'd the screwch.

    It now needs MS installer 3.1 (10 minute cable-download + reboot).

    After reboot, the octaga progress bar can hang just before completing. (another 5 minutes just to be safe). If you don't complete this rediculously arduous install, (for a 3D VEIWER?? get real), you have to reinstall 3.1 again. From local files? nooo. this is MS we're talking about. Another 10 mins + reboot (with their little infinite progress-bar and their little CD & box icon to say 'If you upgrade.. youll NEVER have to wait for this stuff AGAIN! promise!)

    Now you try to uninstal octaga. nope.

    'you gotta finish install, you dope.' Repair? nope. Reinstall? nope. Cancel button? Sure! But it locks up.

    Uninstall 3.1 again, download 3.1 again.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Now it uninstalls ok, but doesnt remove the program from your add/remove list.
