We modders struggle with the complicated file format Digital Image Design used for their games – so I decided to write a viewer. It’s compatible with the .3 file format from TFX (1993), EF2000 (1995), F‑22: Air Dominance Fighter (1997), and F‑22 Total Air War (1998).

Dynamic time of day and debugging functions:
You can load supershapes (SSD files from the SS subdirectory) as well!
Various snapshots I have taken during development (newest first).
