Irrlicht Engine - A free open source 3D engine

Welcome to the Irrlicht Engine

The Irrlicht Engine is an open source high performance realtime 3D engine written in C++. It is completely cross-platform, using D3D, OpenGL and its own software renderers, and has all of the state-of-the-art features which can be found in commercial 3d engines. We've got a huge active community, and there are lots of projects in development that use the engine. You can find enhancements for Irrlicht all over the web, like alternative terrain renderers, portal renderers, exporters, world layers, tutorials, editors, language bindings for java, perl, ruby, basic, python, lua, and so on. And best of all: It's completely free.

Irrlicht 1.8.1 makefile version number fix

The zip-file for Irrlicht 1.8.1 got uploaded once more. As our watchful forum member ent1ty noticed the version number in the Makefile had still been set to 1.8.0. Which resulted in wrong library names on Linux for the shared library. No other changes since last upload. Thanks for the report and sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.
