Working with a Matrix...

Recommended Posts

I''ve never used DirectX before, and I''m starting to learn DirectX 8. I''m creating a 2D game using Direct3D, and I''m using a matrix to scroll the world under the character. I have a few questions about this- 1. How do I prevent the matrix from moving the character while still moving the world? (I''m using D3DXMatrixTranslation(...)) 2. How can I do basic collision detection? For example, so I know when the character bumps into an enemy or tree or something? 3. This isn''t very important, and doesn''t really relate to matrices, but... is there a way for me to change texture coordinates without locking the vertex buffer? I''d appreciate it if you could help me out with any of the above. Thanks!
