    napkin I don't get in the way of other people that actually have something to teach to me, and I'm not cocky in person...but I've put more work into 3d programming than any of you.

    how can anyone disagree with that???? Silver is just such a super amazing graphics programmer, i mean look at this screen shot from his latest 3D graphics engine. i think the picture says it all.

    Mine looks like this right now, and is being improved as we speak.

    Note: That site is not hosted reliably. It's hosted on my computer, and there have been a lot of thunderstorms recently, so I keep shutting down. If it doesn't work, just try it again later.
    Away.

    While we're at it, here's my current game. Its still in alpha, but I'm pretty pleased with it.

    Looks strangely familiar

    Anyway, it's a faintly plausable excuse to post pics of my game (resized down from 1024x768)

    (very basic) menu
    Boom!

    or see my new game Redoubt , made in OpenGL and VC++

    Perhaps the bug of looking down while running into walls does have an easy fix. Are you testing for wall collisions along the camera vector only or are you testing between the character's position and other polies in the game? The only way I could see walking through walls would be if you are testing along the camera vector which would effectively allow you to walk through walls while looking down. Because you are moving perpendicular to the ground and never get closer to it, you will never get a collision with the ground.

    If this is true, then theoretically looking straight up would do the same thing, I cannot download the demo b/c I'm at work so this is just a guess as to why this is happening.

    Better way to put this is that the view frustrum changes when you look down and up - if you are testing for collisions only inside of the view frustrum, then you will never get one while looking straight up or straight down. Your collision code should have nothing to do with the camera vector and everything to do with the movement vector. If you test along the movement vector, thus having nothing to do with the camera/view vector, you should be able to walk backwards, forwards, sideways into walls all while looking whichever direction you want to.

    looking very good Bieh

    polygons aren't ever accessed in this collision detection, and if they are ever accessed they will always be the last things tested

    Then how are you detecting whether you hit a wall or not??

    Thanks, guys

    @ Nutshell: Yes, that's OpenGL

    Look for a release in 2-3 months, at the rate I'm going (/me curses school )
    I'll have a website up soon with any luck, instead of the
    placeholder that I've got atm, so check there for updates

    Very, very easily, and at much much faster than per polygon detection

    it's done with convex (normals point outwards) sets of planes that represent the geometry, and a simple algorithm that determines
    1) whether or not you actually hit the actual geometry that is represented by the plane normals
    2) the closest fraction of the intersection
