Well, it took me about three hours, but I finally got picking working. I actually got the picking itself working about half an hour into it. Then my textures were getting all distorted. It took me the rest of the time to figure out that I have to do my selection pass after my rendering pass in order for things to animate correctly. Well, I would stay up and work on my MAGIC entry, but my sons still around and I need to wake up early and be available for him. So, it'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon. Art resources are going to be the biggest hold up I believe, but it should be interesting all the same.
