xna and shadows/shadow volumes Thanks alot Cygon thats a great help! Sorry for the late reply i've been miles away. So I think between what you've shown me and the directx shadow volume tutorial I can nail this but i've still been racking my brain as to how I could do collision...

xna and shadows/shadow volumes Can nobody provide insight into this? Perhaps some source code/demo of shadow volumes being used in xna? If I can at least get this down then any collision stuff can be an after thought for now.

.x file loading/parsing for random character generator Yeah thats exactly the one im looking at. Now effectively going back to the start i have a model built in the same way, one mesh for a bone and simply want to replace the mesh on one arm for the mesh of another. Im doing this so f...

.x file loading/parsing for random character generator Quote: You could modify a second mesh (identical to the first), and copy the modified vertices from the second mesh to the first for the vertices that are influenced by the bones you're interested in. If you want a different material for those verti...

.x file loading/parsing for random character generator Oh just thought of another really good example! Borderlands has millions of combinations of weapons but all are made up of a selection of different pieces... how are they able to create something unique from many parts?
