im trying to get my ships to point vector(thisvec), im using matrix stacks witch work fine with evertything else, so basicly im trying to rotate the ship with mroate matrix to point the ship in the thisvec direction, but the ship doesnt even show up when i add this transformation, im doing this right befor i draw the ship, (the ship rotate is an enemy ship not the player) D3DXMATRIX mroate; Vector xAxis(1,0,0); Vector myUpVector = thisvec.RotateBy(90,xAxis); D3DXVECTOR3 EyePt( 0,0,0); D3DXVECTOR3 LookatPt(thisvec.x,thisvec.y,thisvec.z); D3DXVECTOR3 UpVec(myUpVector.x,myUpVector.y,myUpVector.z ); D3DXMatrixLookAtLH( &mroate, &EyePt, &LookatPt, &UpVec ); D3DXMatrixMultiply(mStack->GetTop(), &mroate, mStack->GetTop()); r->SetTransform(D3DTS_WORLDMATRIX(0), mStack->GetTop()); [edited by - MetaKnight on October 13, 2003 3:21:19 AM]

this is what my little group has been useing
