I can't seem to attach pics directly, so I'll do the next best thing:
//This is how the square SHOULD look XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX //This is how it actually comes out: XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX
In regards to the projection matrix, I will have to do some more research on this one in time, but this is the function I have to initialize it:
Note that this function call is nested in a function call to initialize all of my directX components. This comes almost straight out of Wendy Jones' book "DirectX 10 for beginners" but it works......now it needs some tweaking.
