How To

What is the limit for making programs in lowres(and im not talking about the token limit and stuff like that)

i mean how complex can you make your program or what is the limit for 3d graphics stuff like that

Just have a look at the featured programs, there are a few good looking things. But you will see quite easily what you can expect.
3D graphics are especially limited, because the LowRes NX graphics system is not made for drawing lines/polygons/textures. Some people made drawing systems, but it's getting very complex quickly and you might not have a lot of resources left to create an actual game then.

"IF" you limit movement to set spots, and to set viewpoints, it is possible to create a"fake" 3D effect...

Will lowres be able to handle real 3D

It can, but it used up nearly all of lowres's ability...

No more features for the virtual hardware are currently planned. The graphics system will stay as it is now. I might add some more BASIC commands to simplify things, but I decided against drawing commands.

The technique of doing "drawing" via using cells is a fun challenge, Its quite doable for little drawing things, and gives NX a "cult" like status... as in, only those "in the know" know how to draw ;)

I rather like it as it is :)
