Default "Free Camera" in Android 3D Games via OpenGL ES Interception-based Shader Replacement

Hi everyone,
Wanted to let the community know that we have just released v1.2 of the MantaMod OpenGL ES interception driver for Android devices. This new release features dynamic run-time gpu shader replacement, allowing you to unlock the game view camera and freely move it around in the 3D game scene, all without needing to modify the original game APK at all.

See some screenshots of the free camera feature in the DeadTrigger zombie shooter game on our Facebook and Twitter pages, or our website www_mantamod_com

Thanks for all your feedback from our earlier post last month announcing our first release with the dynamic texture modding capability. As usual, any feedback on this new release, or 'wishlist' for desired features / supported games is much appreciated! Do drop us a note at mantamod@gmail.com, we'll be glad to hear from you.

Cheers
The MantaMod Team

Hi,
It's an opengl driver for Android that allows you to 'mod' various games.

Do take a look at our website, it may give you a better idea - we have some screenshots there of what some folks in the community have done changing the graphics textures in games.

Our new release allows for custom gpu shader replacement, and the "free camera view" is one example use of this shader replacement feature. So if you play a game like DeadTrigger, which is a first-person-shooter type game, without moving the character around you can move the on-screen viewpoint anywhere in the game world you like - eg view the gameplay from high up, a different angle, etc.

Cheers

Hi,
Yes you need a rooted device to be able to place the MantaMod gl-interceptor files into /system/lib/egl, where the Android OpenGL ES drivers reside.

Once installed, subsequent usage doesn't need root access - you can run your games as usual and the MantaMod drivers will be loaded by the Android OS.

Cheers
