Object Seleting without Select Buffer

Recommended Posts

what must i do to get the object under my mouse without the Select Buffer. I can`t use it because i have around 1000 objects in my scene. There is a Tutorial on Mr-GameMaker but i didn`t get it worked? Anybody there how has Object Selecting without the Select Buffer? Tutorials and Examples are very good so when you have found some ? Thanks and sorry for my bad english Punika [ Power Productions ]

there is no limit to the number of objects that u can use with a selection buffer.

what u can also do is cast a ray direct into your scene from the cursors postion and run that ray through your scenegraph this is a bit more complicated than the selection buffer thingy but should be quicker

I had problems with the select buffer with my Voodoo3000. I found a workaround which is detailed on the www.CornflakeZone.com under tutorials. It uses a unique RGB value per object and draws to the backbuffer. Incidentally my geForce has an excellent implementation of the selection buffer.
