Sorry for the grammar error in title but it felt right.
I've gotten a couple of upvotes on this in recent history so I thought I would post an update.
I have basic Lua integration working, will soon load all resources and create levels from Lua files.
Additional features created:
Triggers and movers
Mostly I have been learning basic software architecture and programming patterns.
Moving from OpenGL to DirectX
Bullet Physics integration
I can't decide what to work on next. The ambient lighting is a bummer so maybe directional / point lights. Trying to decide how to get a working arcade game has got me on edge but I think I can get it going soon. I can add and place additional models with a couple lines of code but was to lazy to spruce the screenshot up, sorry.
Thanks for the previous comments and likes.
