My question:
Shall I wait for an update (where no IDs will be used) or shall I start to write my own Objects?
(So I can use pointers like
"pActiveCamera" that I can send to my functions. (this is what I am doing right now but I dont know if I can kill all the stuff when the update is out) )

Here is an example of what I want to do:
Example Camera handling:


Is this "useful" or shall I wait for the update?

Thanks in advance

PS: WHEN can I post without waiting several hours until my post will actually be posted (moderation)??? I am registred for several days now! It is VERY annoying! Otherwise the community is very nice so far

According to some thread I saw, the time limit is a secret. I have no idea why its a secret. The time limit does make sense to me, but the secrecy is quite strange imo. Must be a British thing.

Yes, we are rather secretive about these things...

I guess it´s so any spammers don´t register, wait the desonated time and then spam. I have a feeling though that the aprovel thing isn´t just time based but also post based.

Unfortunately the forum suffered some fairly heavy spamming in the early part of this year.

I am sworn to secrecy on the exact length of the time limit, but you haven't got too long to go

Write your own. I don't know whether Mike is going to make the SDK OO or not, but even if he does, you can simply make your classes into wrappers for the SDK classes.

IanM,
From what I have read, that is the direction he is taking it. Why else would he give us access to pointers and such for objects? It would make much more sense.

@Soulman,

I think that Mike was talking about passing back a pointer to the structures that hold the DBPro 3D object - I was playing with that in the last unreleased version of my interface library. The additions that were made to the DBPro DLLs would accept a pointer to take various actions on those object. There were no member functions on those structs, except for the odd constructor/destructor.
