Hi. I've been searching this forum & google for several weeks now, trying to find out how to parse an x file in DirectX. I tried the tutorial at http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article1493.asp for parsing x files in an article, but it doesn't have all my needs. I need to be able to extract information of objects in the x file such as the position (x,y,z) and their dimensions. Is this even possible in the x file architecture? When I look at the x file, I don't see any information that would tell me their position.
I'd like to be able to do this is C# (.NET) rather than C++, since I don't enjoy string manipulation in C++.
The goal would be to have someone build a game level using MAX, export to x format, then I can extract the position & dimensions of objects and load it into a game for collision detections.
If you could help out, point me to the right sources, that'd be great.
