I think all you have to do is change the D3DCOLOR_XRGB part to D3DXCOLOR and set the values as (0.0f,0.0f,1.0f,1.0f) (which is blue) or even change that to D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0,0,255).


In Topic: Anyone here a self-taught graphics programmer?

I am regularly ( sp ?? ) ignored by companies even if i have a degree in engeneering electrhonics and have been coding program for 20+ years.

The shift in the industry is totally Unity driven, i'd say that someone with a fair amount of Unity and c# experience might get a better job than someone with a degree , i regreted wasting time and money on my education, sad but true

Ummm, you have probably already been asked this but... Have you tried becoming an Indie developer? Or learning how to use Unity3D and any of its associated scripts (seriously its not that hard!).

Me Too. I started programming with DirectX and C++, learning mostly from tutorials and examples from different places on the internet, and some other tools and languages this year (FYI, I'm 14 right now). And right now I'm working on a (or something similar enough to, or able to speed up any DX 9 Apps I might want to make) Game Engine. And yes of course, I'm still learning what a game engine should be like and how it should be made. Right now I'm still struggling with Mesh Animation, Particle FX (might have made a small mistake somewhere) and the more advanced concepts of 3D transformation, Physics and Mathematics. I also use OpenGL (and I've actually made a 3D app for someone, and gotten paid about $150 in US currency). And I work on an FPS game in Unity3D (Using a tutorial) from time to time.


In Topic: Anyone know a program to design classes?

That seem like a nice program but i don't understand how to execute it. It's in a .jar file, which apparently is the same as a zip file, but when i extract it there is no executable, i don't get it.

 

I dont know much about the program but you might be able to use Violet if you install a Java Virtual Machine.

minibutmany raises a very valuable point. There have been lots of instances where I would continually struggle with my DX apps only to find it was a simple hiccup such as a mispelling a function or parameter or even expressing a statement the wrong way.
