    Using 3DS Files in Dev-C++

    I have got a 3d model maker which can make .3ds ... I made a couple of them and now I wish to link them to my program/game in Dev-C++ or any other C++ compiler. Anybody has got an idea how??

    Hmm, you need to use a graphics library.

    Your not making any since, you want to link a 3d model with your c++ program? Do you mean you want to display it and move it around and stuff?

    It is not called linking. You mean how do you display them, or use them. You need a graphics library like I said earlier. Look for tutorials on DirectX or OpenGL.

    Wink Re: 3ds

    No prob. Say, what exactly are you using to export your 3ds files? Me and a friend are right now working on an Open Source project at reconstructing an ancient medieval village on an Island.


    Btw: Anyone who's interested and has free time can join. I haven't made a website, but I'm working on it. The basic theme is about Vikings. So.


    Have a lot of fun!

    Sunny
