Hi, for a 2D game, you can use sinf & cosf, multiply that by the distance, add this to your player coordinates,

now you have your rotated gun position,


You should learn about matrices, a matrix contains position and rotation, in DX9 there are functions to change & rotate stuff.

Be smart, dont give exclusives just like that to anyone.

If you need help building a recording studio you can always ask me what to buy, analog gear sounds much better.

Thanks for the reply`s

For the toolkit i see no download for XP & Win7, maybe i stay with old trusty DX9,


only it would be very handy to make stuff myself, i might understand things better for optimizing.

That means i have to make a blender export plugin, i bet there are enough examples for that in C.


I use vertexbuffer for the LevelMesh, only indexbuffer i dont know exact how it works, it seems i need it for the models.

And skinned animation is something i would like, only i dont wanto get involved in these seperate shader files for animations,

i want everything done in 1 source code file, not learn a new shader language on top, i dont know if that is possible ?

I started with XNA and then went straight to DX11. So, I skipped DX9, but I guess it natively supports .X files? They took the whole model class out and such in DX11, so it no longer natively supports much of anything.


Oh, does D3DXMesh still exists ?, do you have to figure out now yourself how it works ?, thanks for the examples then.

I still use DX9, i wanto upgrade to a better version maybe if its better, i still use XP, visual C++ 2005, can i install a better DirectX with that ?

I dont wanto download a free compiler since i have professional package and can legally sell with this eventually.
