Download Fractal Engine v3.0
The Fractal Engine v3.0 was originally developed for the Atari ST range of computers, however it is possible to run it on most micro computer systems with the use of a suitable emulator. There are various features that make FE3 unique among Fractal generators (e.g. the ability to draw realistic 3D Julia set landscapes, see the Gallery for examples) so we feel that it is still worth while using FE3. Also with a relatively new pentium PC you can run FE3 faster than was ever possible with an Atari ST compatible. We have tested the basic functionality of FE3 under Windows 95 using PaCifST and under Linux using STonX (homepage.) In the event that some of the links no longer work, you may find general information on Atari emulation at Atari ST emulation support.
Follow these instructions to get FE3 running under Windows 95 (recommended hardware P166 with 16Mb of ram and 1Mb free disk-space.)

I cannot answer technical questions concerning PaCifST. If you do get PaCifST running on your PC (which is not difficult) you should register it.If you intend to publish anything using the Fractal Engine - I would appreciate a small donation.
