Could the rendering code of a visual engine be modified to create the 3D effect on whatever the engine ran?

Of course you can do that but it requires a lot of programming knowledge.

I have only been involved in mods for HL-Source engine and that code is horrible to work with...

If there is support for TrackIR you can use this:

Track IR seems to add features and look about but it doesn't seem to create the 3D effect. Could a engine renderer be modified to create the 3D look?

If the features are not built in natively there is probably lots of modifications that has to be done to implement it into the engine.

Of course it can be done - but requires lots of knowledge



I'm working on a GUI to implement into the Whiteboard apps and I find that hard to do...
