DirectX Programming

DD/D3D I'm trying to create some DX graphics routines running in VB6. I have no experience with DX programming so I am struggling. Although I can already do what I want with pixel level formulae, my routines are like 100 slower than I need them because VB is notoriously slow at drawing graphics. So ...

no progress?

Whether useful to you or not, here's a midi file that I wrote which you're free to use in your game if you want to.

If useful to you, then 20-odd more and you'll have your half hour. :)

Hey Skyline :)

Would like to have helped but I don't think I could manage an hours worth sorry.

UnseenMenace might be able to help you, he did some midi which won him a podium place in a national competition some time ago. :P

calculate B = number of permutations of 6 balls (=6*5*4*3*2*1) calculate A = number of permutations of the six in which any three balls appear in sequence. Required Probability = A/B * Probability of winning the lotto. Hope that gets you started. :) suppose the drawn balls are 1,2,3,4,5,6 in that or...

Who here's excited about starcraft 2 ? :)

We've been waiting for this for years, but I am afraid that it's going to be a bit of a disappointment, apart from the vector graphics and half a dozen new units. It is due to be released in January 2008. THE FEATURES ------------ So what features will be a HIT or a MISS? For the Protoss, I think th...

of course, to round things to the nearest %, instead of rounding down (eg 199/100 = 1%) ... you add one half to the figure before you int it, or +50 before you divide by 100. In basic one uses the cint() operator. int pcamount=58; int value=1192; int amountofvalue=(value * pcamount +50)/100 ...

The reason I asked is because in 1995 I came up with the idea of using the mains for computer networking and described it to my school physics teacher about using a small series capacitor to filter a data signal from the power lines.

Surely a tether that long would have a hell of a lot of weight. Any satellite it's connected to would have to have it's burners on constanly upwards and occasionaly adjust sideways to keep it's orbit position. Because of the weight of the cable, even though the satelite is weightless in space, the ...

I'm remaking my tether program. The problem you see is that it isn't just the satellite thats in orbit - every particle in the tether itself is tempted by gravity into it's own orbit. Things closer to the ground must normally move faster if they are to stay in a stable orbit, but the shorter distanc...
