  1. A few days ago I setup lighting (2 directional lights, an ambient light and a point light) on a project within the main.cpp. Here's the piece of code in the main that handles the lighting setup after setting all the vector values. XMMATRIX view = XMMatrixIdentity(); XMMATRIX world; // Assign view to camera view *= player_camera->getViewMatrix(); // Transform model world space world = XMMatrixRotationX(XMConvertToRadians(x_degrees)); world *= XMMatrixRotationY(XMConvertToRadians(y_degrees)); world *= XMMatrixRotationZ(XMConvertToRadians(z_degrees)); world *= XMMatrixTranslation(noOf2 + -5.0f, noOf3 * -1.3f, noOf * 5.0f); // Create transpose of model's world space transpose = XMMatrixTranspose(world); // model world matrix // Set constant buffer lighting values cb0_values.directional_light_colour = g_directional_light_colour; cb0_values.directional_light_colour_2 = g_directional_light_colour_2; cb0_values.ambient_light_colour = g_ambient_light_colour; // Transpose directional light cb0_values.directional_light_vector = XMVector3Transform(g_directional_light_shines_from, transpose); cb0_values.directional_light_vector = XMVector3Normalize( cb0_values.directional_light_vector ); // Second directional light transpose = XMMatrixTranspose(world); // model world matrix cb0_values.directional_light_vector_2 = XMVector3Transform(g_directional_light_shines_from_2, transpose); cb0_values.directional_light_vector_2 = XMVector3Normalize( cb0_values.directional_light_vector_2 ); // Inverse for point light inverse = XMMatrixInverse(&determinant, world); cb0_values.point_light_vector = XMVector3Transform(point_light0_position, inverse); // WVP into constant buffer cb0_values.WorldViewProjection = world * view * projection; // upload the new values for the constant buffer g_pImmediateContext->UpdateSubresource(g_pConstantBuffer0, 0.1f, 0, &cb0_values, 0, 0); // Load texture and sampler into resource g_pImmediateContext->PSSetSamplers(0, 1, &g_pSampler0); g_pImmediateContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &g_pTexture0); g_pImmediateContext->PSSetShaderResources(1, 1, &g_pTexture1); // Draw the vertex buffer to the back buffer g_pImmediateContext->Draw(sizeof(vertices), 0); Below is my Vertex shader code working along side this. VOut output; // calculate point light float4 lightvector = point_light_vector - position; float point_amount = dot(normalize(lightvector), normal); point_amount = saturate(point_amount); // Assign position of vertex output.position = mul(WVPMatrix, position); // calculate first directional light float diffuse_amount = dot(directional_light_vector, normal); diffuse_amount = saturate(diffuse_amount); // second dir light float diffuse_amount_2 = dot(directional_light_vector_2, normal); diffuse_amount_2 = saturate(diffuse_amount_2); // add all the lights together output.color = ambient_light_colour + ((directional_light_colour * diffuse_amount) + (directional_light_colour_2 * diffuse_amount_2)) + (point_amount * point_light_colour); output.texcoord = texcoord; output.normal = normal; return output; The above works 100% and I was rendering multiple of them using a for loop and moving the light sources throughout the world while rotating each model.   Then comes my problem, I adapted the above code into a model class that lets me set and update all the values like you would do with a model class. It also has its own vertex buffer and constant buffer per object, and I copied the code I had inside my main.cpp to handle that. Here's the Draw() function of the model class. void model::Draw(XMMATRIX *view, XMMATRIX *projection) { XMMATRIX world, inverse, transpose; XMVECTOR determinant; MODEL_CONSTANT_BUFFER model_cb_values; world = XMMatrixRotationX(XMConvertToRadians(m_xangle)); world *= XMMatrixRotationY(XMConvertToRadians(m_yangle)); world *= XMMatrixRotationZ(XMConvertToRadians(m_zangle)); world *= XMMatrixTranslation(m_x, m_y, m_z); world *= XMMatrixScaling(m_scale, m_scale, m_scale); model_cb_values.directional_light_vector = XMVectorSet(m_dl_x, m_dl_y, m_dl_z, 0.0f); model_cb_values.directional_light_colour = XMVectorSet(m_dl_r, m_dl_g, m_dl_b, 0.0f); transpose = XMMatrixTranspose(world); model_cb_values.directional_light_vector = XMVector3Transform(model_cb_values.directional_light_vector, transpose); model_cb_values.directional_light_vector = XMVector3Normalize(model_cb_values.directional_light_vector); inverse = XMMatrixInverse(&determinant, world); model_cb_values.point_light_vector = XMVector3Transform(XMVectorSet(m_pl_x, m_pl_y, m_pl_z, 0.0f), inverse); model_cb_values.ambient_light_colour = XMVectorSet(m_al_r, m_al_g, m_al_b, 0.0f); model_cb_values.point_light_colour = XMVectorSet(m_pl_r, m_pl_g, m_pl_b, 0.0f); model_cb_values.WorldViewProjection = world*(*view)*(*projection); // Set the shader objects as active m_pImmediateContext->VSSetShader(m_pVShader, 0, 0); m_pImmediateContext->PSSetShader(m_pPShader, 0, 0); m_pImmediateContext->VSSetConstantBuffers(0, 1, &m_pConstantBuffer); // Load texture and sampler into resource m_pImmediateContext->PSSetSamplers(0, 1, &m_pSampler); m_pImmediateContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &m_pTexture); m_pImmediateContext->UpdateSubresource(m_pConstantBuffer, 0, 0, &model_cb_values, 0, 0); m_pObject->Draw(); } It takes pointers of view and projection which is calculated before drawing and passed in. This is the updated shader code, which is pretty much identical as models were adapted to use a new shader. cbuffer CB0 { matrix WVPMatrix; // 64 bytes float4 directional_light_vector; // 16 bytes float4 directional_light_colour; // 16 bytes float4 ambient_light_colour; // 16 bytes float4 point_light_vector; // 16 bytes float4 point_light_colour; // 16 bytes float4 packing; // 16 bytes } // TOTAL SIZE = 112 bytes Texture2D texture0; SamplerState sampler0; struct VOut { float4 position : SV_POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; float2 texcoord :TEXCOORD; }; VOut ModelVS(float4 position : POSITION, float2 texcoord : TEXCOORD, float3 normal : NORMAL) { VOut output; float4 default_color = {1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f }; float4 lightvector = point_light_vector - position; float point_amount = dot(normalize(lightvector), normal); point_amount = saturate(point_amount); output.position = mul(WVPMatrix, position); output.texcoord = texcoord; float diffuse_amount = dot(directional_light_vector, normal); diffuse_amount = saturate(diffuse_amount); output.color = ambient_light_colour + (directional_light_colour * diffuse_amount) + (point_amount * point_light_colour); return output; } float4 ModelPS(float4 position : SV_POSITION, float4 color : COLOR, float2 texcoord : TEXCOORD) : SV_TARGET { return texture0.Sample(sampler0, texcoord) * color; } Then I updated my main.cpp and set all the respective values identical to the ones from when it was running in the main like so. Model1->setDirLight(-2.0f, 0.0f, -5.0f, lighting0_colour[0], lighting0_colour[1], lighting0_colour[2]); Model1->setPtLight(3, 3, 0, 0.0f, 0.0f, 2.0f); Model1->setAmbLight(0.1f, 0.1f, 0.1f); Model1->setXPos(0.0); Model1->setYPos(0.0); Model1->setZPos(2.0); Model1->setXAng(x_degrees); Model1->setYAng(y_degrees); Model1->setZAng(z_degrees); Model1->setScale(0.5f); Model1->Draw(&view, &projection); The above results in the video here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2873587/LightingScrewed.mp4   You can see when I'm setting up the light positions that there's a directional light in the front left, (which I set to white), and a point light on 3,3,0 which is the right side of the object, and its set to blue. As soon as the video starts the object is in position 0 0 0 and no rotation, so everything looks fine. Then I begin to rotate the object and the lighting goes completely screwed and inverted and all sorts else. In the main.cpp version I was able to move the point light around the object (without doing any rotations) and the effects were what you expect. I mapped the point light in the model example (not in the video) and the results are not what you would expect at all, so something is off.   Is there anything I could have missed out to cause this? I've made this adaptation from main.cpp to model.cpp 3 times and the results are the same so I don't think I'm missing any code. If needed I can supply more code.   Thanks in advance, this was a long post with lots of code. -Kris

      Hey, thanks so much! The min distance was the cause haha, can't believe I missed that one. As for the sizeof, good call, even though it's been working with that method so far.
  3. Hello, I'm completely new to Directx 11 and I'm trying to implement a depth buffer in my program. Currently this is the result I'm getting when trying to render:   https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2873587/ZBufferFail.mp4   I've followed 2 different tutorials for depth buffer and it results in the same thing, so I'm starting to think the issue is related to something elsewhere in the code.
