3D Sattrack

Notice: A graphics card supporting geometry shader extension is required to run this demo (Eg. GeForce 8800+ or equivalent). Also if you select to run the program in full screen mode and have a LCD, select the resolution matching that of your monitor. Otherwise, you may experience screen thrashing (at least it does on my Windows 7 box).
