The SDK (Software Developer's Kit) 1.1 provides additional support to the development process including different tutorials provided on the developer's Web page. As an open-source technology, the engine supported by the ACT file extension can be freely downloaded and modified along with some examples on how to implement and deploy the Genesis3D application. The modified engine must also be made publicly available to other users to continually support its open-source objectives. In cases wherein developers that modify the Genesis3D engine opt not to share their application, they are required to pay for the license issued by Eclipse to maintain its private nature. To effectively utilize the potentials of the Genesis3D engine, the computer system must have Visual C++ 6, Borland C++, Delphi, or Visual Basic compiler installed.
