Hi, im new to the new bords, I've been in the old boards plenty of times (lost? join the club) anyways here's my questions:

1.) How can I get a face (I guess thats what there called, those one sided squares) To constantly face the camera? I tryed this:

Point object 1,camera position x, camera positon y, camera position z

but all it did was when the camera moved it spun around, plese help.


2.) I want to make it so that every 100 Pixles the system makes an ivisible box, these boxes continuse on for however long I want them and when your mouse runs over one something different happens for each box, plese help


3.) Can somone make me a random generator? just something like it have 25% of landing on either A B C or D when you start up the program, even better though would be something that it lands 60% on A and 40% on B. Be much appriciated

Um... i dont think that im exactly sure what you're asking about with question's 2 and 3 but for the first question:
what you want to do is use the "position object" comand like this,

position object 1, camera position x, camera position y, camera position z - 100

this way the object will move percisely with the camera.
the -100 part sets the object 100 units away so that the object isn't right up in the camera.
as for getting the camera to face a particular polygon face on the object you can try first rotating the object to the angle you want and then use the "fix object pivot" comand that fixes the object's angle for good after you have rotated it. peace
