Urgent - 3DSFTK help

14 March 2013 - 03:10 AM

Does anyone know where I can get a download of the 3DSFTK toolkit? All the posts I have found on this forum or around the web that have a link to it no longer exist.


I do realise that the 3DSFTK toolkit is an old piece of software, but I have been tasked with fixing a program that requires it to run.


Thanks in advance,



Edit: Managed to find http://www.findthatzipfile.com/search-44460564-hZIP/winrar-winzip-download-3dsftk.zip.htm but I can't test it until later. Can anyone confirm that this is indeed the correct files that I require?


Thanks again,


XMMatrixOrthographicLH Question

14 January 2013 - 03:02 PM

Quick question regarding the use of the XMMatrixOrthographicLH function.


After spending several days trying to figure out why I couldn't render any 2D objects in my game I finally realised I had the incorrect inputs to this function (all fixed and working now!), I'm just unsure why my original inputs were wrong.


I currently have a camera with a near z of 0.1 and a far z of 1500 just as default but when using these values to create the orthographic matrix nothing would be rendered on screen. I now use the same function but with values of 0 and 1 respectively and everything works.


If someone could explain that would be appreciated as documentation / google searches just say that the near z and far z values are required.
