hi guys
I want to transform my mouse coordinates into my 3D system.
However, I want to check if someone clicks on the boundingbox.
I tried it with raycasting, but I failed >.<
I get for f 0.0 nearly everywhere on my screen (even though i dont click on the box), except in the top left corner of the screen, where i get null.
My values for my planes are kinda weird aswell.
For Example: My nearpoint gets for his x 0.007199... and my farpoint x 71,99... when i click on the point where x should be around 4.

Here is my code:
setting the Matrizes:

World = Matrix.Identity;
View = Matrix.CreateLookAt(new Vector3(0, 0.1f, 0 + 0.01f), new Vector3(0, 0, 0), Vector3.Up);
Projection = Matrix.CreatePerspectiveFieldOfView(MathHelper.PiOver4, GraphicsDevice.Viewport.AspectRatio, 0.01f, 1000f);


Unprojecting:
public Vector3 Unproject()
{

Vector3 nearPoint = new Vector3(ms.X, ms.Y, 0);
Vector3 farPoint = new Vector3(ms.X, ms.Y, 1);
Viewport viewport = GraphicsDevice.Viewport;

nearPoint = viewport.Unproject(nearPoint, Projection, View, World);
farPoint = viewport.Unproject(farPoint, Projection, View, World);
Vector3 direction = farPoint - nearPoint;
direction.Normalize();
//Ray(Vector3 position, Vector3 direction);
Ray ray = new Ray(nearPoint, direction);
BoundingBox b = new BoundingBox(new Vector3(0, 0f, 0), new Vector3(1f, 1f, 1f));
float? f = ray.Intersects(b);
if (f != null)
{
Vector3? v = ray.Position * f;
return v;
}
}


Plz help me :D

Instead of transforming mouse coordinates into 3D, try the other way around: Convert the 3D into 2D, simply disregard the Z-axis and do regular 2D collision checking..
