Looking for somthing like an Archos I'm looking for something similar to an Archos portable media player, ..... but not by Archos :) Reason being, is that I've bought a few of their products, the last being the Archos 5, and find that the build quality isn't that great, and mine has...

SetScrollInfo calls WM_SIZE I have a some other logic that I use on a WM_SIZE event, specifically the resizing of child windows. I dont want to do that when only the scrollbar has chnaged its range as that has no affect on the childwindows. Is there a way I can d...

Blur & Glow You just add it with the the original rendertarget, using additive blending. If you have photoshop to hand, it works great for testing these kind of things. a) Create a new layer, and fill it with your intial scene render b) Use the levels too...

Looking for somthing like an Archos Yeah, I had a look at the Cowons, but none of them meet the storage requirements. No other suggestions? Looks like I'm just going to have to give in and get something around the 64gb mark, and have to split up my music collection. :( I hate...

Finding rotation angles from a normal For problem one, I'd create a basis, such as x = A4 - A1 z = A2 - A1 y = Cross( x, z ) And then problem two uses the same x,z NewPoint = A1 + ( Scale*x + Scale*z ); Where scale is between 0 and 1. Where you then position the basi...

Ray/triangle test. Has this already been done? Quote: Yes, that's a standard method for testing for intersection between a ray and a triangle or other convex polygon. (It's not the only method, nor is it always the best choice, but it is standard.) ah, ok. I did have a quick search and...

typing text to screen with directx 10 I implemented my simple console by redirecting my wndproc data to a console object. The blinking thingy isnt too hard to achieve. The best way is to separate what you read and store and what you render. Where when rendering you simple grab the text t...
