  1. c++ inhertiance

    Ok so I tried like every possible combination and I guess maybe my problem the whole time was that I can't just subtract two d3dxvector3's I needed to use D3DXVec3Subtract   This doesn't work: SteeringVector = &target.GetPosition() - &source.GetPosition(); But this does: D3DXVec3Subtract(&SteeringVector, &target.GetPosition(), &source.GetPosition()); without inheriting from GameplayObject     On a side note though with inheritiance it would not let me access the protected data of the base class I kept getting "Error 1 error C2248: 'GameplayObject::position' : cannot access protected member declared in class 'GameplayObject'  "  which I thought the whole point of putting it under protected instead of private was so subclasses would have access directly to the data...   Thank you everyone for your help and advice...
  2. c++ inhertiance

    I'm working on a basic game and trying to do steering algorithms and my problem I believe is routed in inheritance of classes.   So basically I have a class called GameplayObjects which have some variables like speed, velocity, etc...  I'm now trying to create a class called Steering which is derived from GameplayObjects so I have access to the objects speed and stuff.  Now my problem comes in when trying to write the member functions of steering because in order to calculate the needed vectors for the steering I'm using two different GameplayObjects.    So for instance for a seek function I need to subtract the target and source positions but can't get it to work, I've tried everything I can think of like making Getfunctions inside of GameplayObjects to return position but still got errors.   so basically here's what I've tried with no luck....   void Steering::seek (GameplayObjects source, GameplayObjects target) {  SteeringVector = target.position  - source.position;    SteeringVector = *target->Getposition  - *source->Getposition;  //and yes I changed the declaration of the function so that source and target are pointers   }   So I guess the question is how do I pass in to GameplayObjects and access their respective attributes like speed, position, rotation, velocity, etc..  Its been a while since I've done coding I know this has to  be a simple solution but I just cant think of it....  
  3. Help with c++ DX9 and shaders

    Or should I be putting the two effects into one file? And if I do that would I need to do more than one pass?
  4. I need some help getting a shader to work, and I have some basic questions about shader implantation as well.   I'm using DirectX9 with C++, inside of VS2010, and I cant seem to get this shader to work every time I render the scene it appears to be the same as without the shadder.  So first its a very basic one scene program where I'm just trying to get the basic of effects and how to use them.  I have a a mesh with a texture applied to it, and an Ambient light effect which all seems to be working fine.  But when I try to add a gooch bump reflect effect that is from fxComposer it doesn't seem to do anything.    So I guess the first question is what variables for the shader do I have to set( see shader code below)  I've tried several things and I think I just need to pass in or set the World, WorldInverseTranspose, WorldViewProjection, and ViewInverse matrixes.    Second question is what is the technique name that I should be using for the effect, I'm currently setting the technique to "Main".   Third question is when using to different effects I'm currently doing everything for the first technique setting the techniques and matrixes then beginning the effect, beginning the pass, commit changes, render the mesh and then ending the pass, end the effect and then doing that all over again for the second effect.  Is this the proper way of doing it?  I'm effectively drawing the mesh twice before I end scene and present it.    And the fourth and final question for now is for the WorldInverseTranspose and ViewInverse matrixes I'm taking the world matrix and Inverse it with D3DXMatrixInverse and then transposing it with D3DXMatrixTranspose and for the ViewInverse I'm just using D3DXMatrixInverse  to inverse the view matrix.  Is that the correct way, and does it need to be done in a particular order like should I be transposing before inversing the world matrix?   Please any help will be greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance.   GOOCH BUMP REFLECT SHADER CODE:   /*********************************************************************NVMH3**** $Revision$ Copyright NVIDIA Corporation 2007 TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THIS SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED *AS IS* AND NVIDIA AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  IN NO EVENT SHALL NVIDIA OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SOFTWARE, EVEN IF NVIDIA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
