Version 1.5 marks the release of dim3 for Windows XP, and adds map improvements as well as doubling the maximum number of segments. The update also includes various interface changes, calls player spawn before map start events, determines story page counts dynamically, adds the ability to launch story elements from map open events, and incorporates numerous bug fixes. Version 1.5 includes changes to the engine, input, user-interface, scripting, animator, editor, demo, documentation, and source code. Dim3 is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
