I think the icon I selected for this post sums up my progress over the past 6 weeks perfectly. With all the crap I discovered\learned about using a camera in D3D, I now have focus again and can continue where I left off...What's next. Shadows. I have been going back and forth between fixed point and precomputed and will experiment with both methods. I hear the snickers...No that won't take six weeks to work out. Six weeks may seem like a long time, but over that span I think I have only worked about 40hrs on the engine and other proofs. My personal life has been hectic and it is all I can do to get an hour here or two hours there to work on it. I hope to have screens soon showing progress.
