In Topic: Learning Direct3D Programming properly

28 June 2015 - 09:06 AM

I'm not sure I would even know where to begin with that. I wouldn't know how to interact with hardware without using Direct3D functions.

 

I think that would be putting me way over my head for now, and that I should probably just stick with trying to learn how to use Direct3D properly. 

 

What do you think?

I'm not sure I understand the question to begin with


In Topic: Terrain Collision and Bounding spheres?u

25 July 2013 - 02:40 AM

sphere collisions are basically a matter of calculating distance between 2 points and subtracting 2 radiuses

it's a trivial and fast algorithm with sometimes acceptable drawbacks, unless your needs are specific

Yeah, I know how to do bounding sphere collision detection, sorry if my question wasn't worded right. I was just wondering why this may be preferrable to a bounding box or cylinder which could be closer to the size of the player then a sphere

I was able to fix the issue by using D3DXMatrixRotationY instead of D3DXMatrixRotationAxis in the Yaw function. Thanks, guys.

Thank you so much. I don't know why I didn't think of this, I just assumed that because I didn't have to do it in 3D transformations, I wouldn't have to for this. 

 

Thank you :)
