I am writing a simple tile game and I already have it doing
collision detection using bounding boxes but now I want to go further and put in some pixel perfect collision detection. Anyone know where I can get some good VB/DX7 source code for this?? I haven''t been able to find any on the net so far. Help please. Thanks.

I am having the same trouble and this still is not accurate enough. It is pretty damn close. If anyone finds out an answer to better collision detection then please post it

The way the code works

It uses 3 slope intercept equations to check if the point is inside of a 2D triangle. To check a 3D triangle it checks 3 triangles from one 3D triangle. Look at In3DPoly()

If you cannot read this code then sorry
