I have already traslate a mesh with the function D3DXMatrixTranslation in a precise position of the 3D space. But how can i do to move the mesh in direction with a vector?
Sorry for my english .
Easiest way is to keep a hold of the position you want is in a vector than when it comes time to actually do the transformation transform it into a matrix.
so in your game logic you can simply do position += velocity or something like that, but when your it comes time to render just do
D3DXMatrixTranslation and multiply the mesh by the matrix.
