Recent chaos occurred today in RVHouse and on both IRC Channels as a result of Gaming4JC being banned from RRR, and a fake release of Phoenix R3 given out to everyone but him.

RST is making an "R3 Engine". It is the first 3d engine for Re-Volt to be made entirely from scratch. It is able to load .prm and .m file types already and is under active development. It plans to be more stable and configurable than the former FreeVolts engine which was a modified IRRLICHT engine. It will make the R3-DCP and other programs reach much better quality than was thought of previously. For more info on the engine visit RRR.

New Screenshot of the Month has a story!
Phoenix R3 now supports the long awaited Ghost Car! The story goes as quoted by RST:
Here you have the Most rare pic in all whole Re-volt History.
Look carefully. Yes, it is the Ghost Car !!!. Now it is visible again on the full versions of re-volt !!
In fact, this was one of my dreams, to get the ghost car again visible in the game. I remember from the year 2000 I was talking with another power user on the scene called Antimorph a so good friend o'mine !. He always told me, "the programmers are so lazy, and they must have of only disabled the car...."
I am sure he was a long time trying to enable it, and making this he discovered how to make custom cameras also called Morph's copterTMMCC... Since these old times, my most intense dream about the game was to get this ghost car visible again. Now, years later, thnx to the power of my little program and called Phoenix R3, we can play with it on the time trail mode !. And is the power !!!!
Then in the honor of Antimorph's honor, goes this picture !!! and the cars limit fix, and other programs. I can only say... --Original Source on RRR
