Very Very Nice Chafari..what also learnt from you is you sky boxes by setting SetObjectCullMode(objid,0)

Just as simple as that to make a sphere inverted - Dammn

Awesome

We are all great programmers in one way or another. Only started memblocks last year and you know, they are very easy once work with them.

Just think triangles...

Once got the idea on how polygons are contructed ( by 2 x triangles to make a quad) then we are good.

I shall continue the memblock work - to keep giving inspirations but for some its a fearful prospect but for 3D, its a fear that should be resolved.

In time with knowledge, that will be resolved

1 Draw call for a mesh to the GPU is better than 100k individual draw calls - - each SYNC command reduces FPS depends what drawn in that frame...

thats where memblocks comes in


its very worth while thinking about

Works really well

Just have to remember to turn off visibility to sprites and buttons
prior to its rendering and then back on after (all of which before the sync())

I actually took the method you used for the magnifier, so that the mirror appears a bit more bright than the surrounding geometry.
This helps it stand out bit more and gives a bit more 'real' metallic feel - well to me at least.
