I could be wrong, but you might have your near a bit off on the orthographicOffCenter, try:

CreateOrthographicOffCenter(0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 2.0f);

It ended up being the z distance thanks.
I dont really understand tho, say I put 0 and -2 as the near and far distance. Am I correct to assume that anything with a Z value between these will be displayed?

Let me rephrase the question, is the zFar value a point in 3d space (making my logic valid) or is it a length in the negative direction from the zNear value(which is what it seems to be)?
by the second explanation I mean for example using -1 and 3 would make anything visible between -1 and -4

Is there anything you would recommend i put on the personal statement?
I see that some of you have been or are at university and you opinion would really help me as i am clueless as to what to put.

I am thinking of sending them an email just to get their view.
So far i have:

I am currently looking into different universities as i am planing to apply this year.
I wish to do some sort of computer programming in the future and have a strong lean towards the games sector.
I wondered if you could answer some questions to help me choose between taking the "computer science with games development" or just the normal "computer science" and take some of the modules of the games development course.
1- What percentage of students ultimately end up in the games sector after taking the games development Bsc course?
2- Do you often get studios or companies asking for undergraduates? And if so would you give preference to those students that have taken the games course or would you offer the job to any of the students that was looking to work in that sector?
3- What contacts does the department have within the games sector?

Anything else i could add?

Before I answer that, take a look at the Skillset accredited courses on their website here. The only course that's accredited at the University of Hull is the Msc Games Programming course and these are the courses that have been praised by the games industry. Y'know, not to make you're decision even more tougher ;)

Im not really 100% sure how much i trust that site, im sure their doing there best to research all the courses and such, but derby's course isnt on there and thats meant to be one of the best courses in the country (or so i have heard)

Sorry I meant that if the lecturers heard of any jobs going, would they give preference to the students in the games course? Or would they just offer it to who ever did the best in their class(and consequently would probably be better at the job) ?
