Post: RE: A change of direction

This last year of DirectX exploration has taught me much. I've come to realize the vast amount of man-hours that is required to master the inner workings of a 3D game engine. Although I've progressed...

No, I've not thrown in the towel yet, although at times I was inclined to do so. Its been a long hard haul with many stops, starts, and re-runs. My main problem has been in integrating my surfing wave...

After browsing through the chapters of Frank Luna's book and scouring the scarce DirectX 12 resources on the Net, I'm now having second thoughts on porting my project to DX12. It seems to me that Dire...

I'm still with the stationary wave and its vertex normals... After many failed attempts I think I'm finally on the right track. To get decent shading and texturing of the wave surface involves produci...
