H definition provides support for the projection and view matrices for our engine. Because we aren’t truly studying 3D rendering—only using Direct3D as a tool for our upcoming 2D game projects—I will leave the details to another resource. h. h, rather than all of the individual header files. Advice Here are two good reference books that will teach you the ins and outs of Direct3D rendering: 3D Game Engine Programming (Thomson Course Technology PTR, 2004) by Stefan Zerbst and Oliver Duvel and Advanced Visual Effects with Direct3D (Thomson Course Technology PTR, 2005) by Peter Walsh.

In the tree-view list, expand Projects and Solutions and select VCþþ Directories. There is a drop-down list on the right side where you can choose Library Files. lib in the linker configuration without needing to prepend the relative folder location. 14.

This was done to keep the Engine and its support classes and functions contained to prevent conflicts with other entities in the global namespace. Advice Are you getting lost already with these discussions of namespaces and so forth? This is basic Cþþ programming! If you’re struggling with it, you’ll need a crash course before proceeding.
