DrEvil, thanks, it's realy good idea. I've done it and I saw on the vector field, that there are eternal loops, but I can't handle it. On the attached igms I've isolated with black areas wrong vectors. Direction defines as from cell center to periphery.


Don't know how to correct that.

Thanks, I've fixed it.

Projects a 3D vector from screen space into object space.

XMVECTOR XMVector3Unproject(
  [in]  XMVECTOR V,
  [in]  float ViewportX,
  [in]  float ViewportY,
  [in]  float ViewportWidth,
  [in]  float ViewportHeight,
  [in]  float ViewportMinZ,
  [in]  float ViewportMaxZ,
  [in]  XMMATRIX Projection,
  [in]  XMMATRIX View,
  [in]  XMMATRIX World

Is this all you need?

In Topic: 2D rotation problems

I've handled problem. The problem was in world matrix. The right variant (in my case) is World = scale * rotationZ * translation. And this line of code killed 2 days of my life angry.png


unbird, you are right about coefficients calculating and atan2, but it was another bug.


So the correct variant of setting GameObjects to draw lines:

for (Line& line: SidesCoordList)
		shared_ptr<GameObject> temp(new GameObject());
		float length = sqrt( pow(line.point2.x - line.point1.x, 2) + pow(line.point2.y - line.point1.y, 2) );

		float A = line.point1.y - line.point2.y;
		float B = line.point1.x - line.point2.x;
		float angle = atan2(A, B);

		XMFLOAT2 center = XMFLOAT2(  (line.point2.x + line.point1.x) / 2.0f, (line.point2.y + line.point1.y) / 2.0f );

		temp->SetRotation(-(XM_PIDIV2 - angle));
		temp->SetScale(XMFLOAT2( 5.0f, length ));


And here is function that defines if the object reach the line:

bool BulletManager::IsIntersecting(Line line, XMFLOAT2 point, float eps)
	if (!((point.x >= min(line.point1.x, line.point2.x) &&
		point.x <= max(line.point1.x, line.point2.x)) ||
		(point.y >= min(line.point1.y, line.point2.y) &&
		point.y <= max(line.point1.y, line.point2.y))) )
		return false;

	// Constructing canonical line equation
	float A = line.point1.y - line.point2.y;
	float B = line.point2.x - line.point1.x;
	float C = (-B * line.point2.y) - (A * line.point2.x);

	// Calculating distance from bullet to line
	float Dist = (abs((A * point.x) + (B * point.y) + C)) / sqrt(pow(A,2) + pow(B,2));

	if (Dist <= eps)
		return true;

	return false;

Maybe it will be useful for someone. Who knows...
