hi, i'm having trouble, anyway this is what i do to flatten the mesh unto the floor, D3DXVECTOR4 LightPosition( 0.0f, 3.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); D3DXMATRIX ShadowMatrix; D3DXPLANE ShadowPlane(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); D3DXMatrixShadow(&ShadowMatrix, &LightPosition, &ShadowPlane); matObjWorld *= ShadowMatrix; ... can you plz show me the way how to project the flatten mesh to the right/left side instead? many thanks, [edited by - mickey on November 5, 2002 8:10:01 AM]

not sure if this is right...

a shadow plane (or any plane) can/is defined with a normal. so to have a normal "ground" plane u use a normal (0.0,1.0,0.0) y-axis is pointing up. to change this to wall on the right side, i''d say use something like (-1.0,0.0,0.0) x-axis is pointing to the left.

right?
