Engine design Hey all, It has been a while. Between school and work, I barely have time to program anymore, but I figured since I just finished building my new PC, I would try and get some programming done. My question is about the various philosophies on...

Biggest idiot EVAR!!! It is a couple of months old, but still great. Sorry if this is a repost... LOSER How dumb do you have to be? Not only did he attempt to hammer the CPU into the mobo, he broke every last pin off with a vice grip. I am starting to doubt the...

BrainF*** Okay, I have heard about this "language" for a while now, and I finally searched google to find out what it was. It is awesome. It is the smallest language I have ever seen (obviously, isn't that the point)! For those too lazy to google, it is a...

Error with WinMain What type of project did you create? You have to select a Win32 App to make sure it loads the right dependencies. Also, I know the express version of MSVC++ 2005 did not ship with the windows platform SDK. This is an extra download needed to do windo...

Error with WinMain It looks like your code is trying to find a main() function, but you've supplied a WinMain. You need to make sure your project settings are for a windows application and not a console app. What compiler/IDE are you using?

WooHoo!!! 1521 (uh 1522 now...) for me. When I started I was averaging above 5 posts per day. After a year off and less free time, I'm down to just 1 per day.

Learning DirectX yet can't find an answer to a problem If you are looking directly down the Z-axis, the triangle would just be a line (if I am understanding this correctly). I'm not 100% how DX handles culling in this situation. If you rotate the camera or the world matrix in either direction (around the...

Learning DirectX yet can't find an answer to a problem When they say clockwise, they generally mean from the point of view of the camera. If you have a 3D object, this means that is all the triangles are ordered that way, only the side visible to the camera get drawn. This can help with performance,...

What Are You Working On? Currently trying to make a simple space shooter with my latest attempt at a rendering engine. (Un)Fortunately I have been a little side tracked lately trying to catch up and learn a bit of XNA.
