i already made a .3ds mesh loader, i still needs a little work, but it
works fine, i also did phong shading via enviroment mapping..and it looks
real good...but i had to edit the V3D structure, i added variables for the
vertex normals etc...so to add it to allegro, you would have to add in a
a few precalculation functions before you use the triangle3d() function,
for the normals...but that was really easy to do....that would be really
nice though is someone speeded up the allegro 3d functions...because i
refuse to use any other library ;)...

>The other things I wish somebody would add are Phong support and 3DS

>you some documents on Phong and a 3DS Reader...
