1). What do the 9 parameters to gluLookAt() mean? I'm guessing eye is where the camera is, center is where it focuses, but what the heck are the last 3 - the 'up' ones? 2). This isn't really opengl, but, what is the best way to do arkanoid collision detection (circle with rectangles, storing the block's positions, etc.) 3). How do I get the current coordinates of my mouse? 4). Last, does anybody have a function that draws a sphere? [edited by - tarun713 on June 30, 2002 6:46:53 PM]

I can help on a couple, but not all.

1) "Up" is simply the vector of up. So, for a person, it would be a line coming upwards out of their head. Normally this is (0,1,0)

3) NeHe''s Lesson 32 uses mouse movement. http://nehe.gamedev.net/tutorials/lesson.asp?l=32
You''ll have to download the code to get what you are looking for, though.

4) Take a look at gluSphere()

void gluSphere( GLUquadricObj *qobj,
GLdouble radius,
GLint slices,
GLint stacks )
