Egon, I was actually going to suggest a glow effect. Nice to see you were ahead of me. How fast is your method (sounds fairly intense)? By what I understood it will render the same frame a few times before applying the result to the original render.

There are applets and there are applications. Most people here write Java applications. Applets are the ones that run on websites. To write an applet, extend either the Applet or the JApplet class. A graphical application generally extends either Frame or JFrame (although there are other ways to get windows). Also, if anyone is writing it straight for lwjgl, then they don't need to extend any frame class. Did that help at all?

And yet it worked. Read the documentation before saying I'm wrong. I appreciate the attention, but you might want to read the code before criticising it.

I can't try it here but I expect I figured it out (if it's wrong, please somebody say so):

SimpleVector p1 = Interact2D.project3D2D(camera, buffer, vertex1);
SimpleVector p2 = Interact2D.project3D2D(camera, buffer, vertex2);
graphicsInstance.drawLine(p1.x, p1.y, p2.x, p2.y);

How do I draw a line between two 3d coordinates?

Totally agree with you two. Before jPCT I had pretty much given up on 3d programming. It's very hard for one programmer to do anything useful by himself from scratch, and the complexity of everything else out there is annoying. Except DarkBasic, but it doesn't work very well, and Basic isn't object-oriented, which sucks.

Best way to learn is to use notepad and the JDK ( type into Notepad the following:

public class HelloWorld {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.out.println("Hello, world!");

Save to Then, after installing the JDK, run a command prompt (Start>Run>cmd). Switch to wherever you saved your java file and type javac Then java HelloWorld and voila. If you're confused by any part of it, just ask. If you already knew this stuff, focus on object-oriented concepts now, or eveything else will confuse you. Good luck.

How can I have access to a model's polygons? I'm porting a bone structure I wrote several years ago to JPCT and I need access to any given polygon. My implementation used a stack.peekAt(int) method. Is there a similar method in jpct? Also, is there any readily built bone classes to distart 3d characters? Thanks in advance.

In Portuguese (just the part to aguirmrc):

Eu não sei o quanto você já sabe, mas eu vou falar sobre a detecção de colisão. Se você tem experiência com Java, adicionar um listener deve ser algo que você já fez muitas vezes. Então, como você adicionaria um KeyListener a um Frame, você adiciona um CollisionListener a um objeto (neste caso, ambos os cubos). Depois, chame Object3D.setCollisionMode(Object3D.COLLISION_CHECK_SELF) para um e  Object3D.setCollisionMode(Object3D.COLLISION_CHECK_OTHERS) para o outro. Escreva o código que lidará com colisão no método public void collision(CollisionEvent) que você terá que override quando implementando a interface CollisionListener, e faça o que quizer com requiresPolygonIDs() (overwride com nada, se quizer--mas não esqueça do return statement!). Agora, toda vez que você mover os cubos (ou em um loop para o cubo automático ou manualmente pelo keyPressed(KeyEvent)), você terá que chamar Object3D.checkForCollisionX(). Voila.

Se isto não for o suficient, volte a escrever que eu explico passo a passo.

To answer Uija, perhaps some people assume that the American people are more sofisticated than in fact they are. I still remember some eight years ago when they did that survey asking American students where the USA was in a world map and an astounding percentage (don't remember how much) didn't know the answer. I wonder if Bush Jr. did before taking the job.

To answer aguirmrc. I don't know how broad your question is (that is to say, I don't know how much you already know to do), but I'll address the collision-detection. If you're not new to Java programming, adding a listener should be nothing new to you. So just as you would add a KeyListener to a Frame, you add a CollisionListener to an object (in this case, both cubes). Next, call Object3D.setCollisionMode(Object3D.COLLISION_CHECK_SELF) for one and Object3D.setCollisionMode(Object3D.COLLISION_CHECK_OTHERS) for the other. Write your collision-response code in the public void collision(CollisionEvent) method you'll have to override when implementing the CollisionListener interface, and do whatever you want with requiresPolygonIDs() (overwride it with nothing if you want to--but don't forget the return statement!). Now, every time you move one of the cubes (either in a loop for the automatic or manually through keyPressed(KeyEvent)), you have to call Object3D.checkForCollisionX(). Voila.

If that's not enough, write back and I'll explain step by step.

I've implemented CollisionListener and, of course overridden void collision() and boolean requiresPolygonIDs(). I have called Object3D.addCollisionListener(listener) on both objects, and have made the code of the collision() method to be System.exit(0); to test if anything happens. But when the collision is supposed to happen, it doesn't, and the program goes on running. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

Try it out. If it worked I would have done it. Trust me, following is complicated. But I appreciate the suggestion.

Sorry about the confusion: what I sent you was just a quick-and-dirty little program in which the x-Wing doesn't even turn around. But you have to imagine the camera following the x-Wing turning constantly on screen.

Test case sent. Please prove me wrong because the code really doesn't seem to work. Thanks in advance.
