Im not Programming the Game using DirectX or anything. My game are OS dependent ( I hope I can keep it ). I want to know the basic of 3D math, I dont know how to use FPATAN, ARCOS and anything else, and also I dont know how to made that function. Hope you can help. :alright:

Ok follow these steps...

1) Buy pre-calculus book and read it... learn identities

2) Learn about approximations through series (like Taylor) -- may need a calculus book for that...

3) Buy Linear algebra book and read it... learn about matrices

4) Then find a book that has a crash course in game programming 3d math and now understanding matrix multiplication, transformations and rotations won't be so hard...

I may have missed a few things (given I'm writing this quickly), but with this information under your belt and a decent grasp of a programming language and you can do wonders...

Algebra, trig and a little geometry are pretty much what you'll need. Matrices are a handy short cut but you can learn that later since it tends to confuse until you know the basics.

Caleb's d3dx8math_fkt file contains much of the required math as a set of handy dandy macros, which are fast and cheap, and can be further encapsulated in procedures if tight code is a priority.

You really should check them out !!

I have Finish it. But it still too slow. Anyone can help?

You have to Run it Under-DOS mode, this program will not going back to the RealMode and restart your PC.

I can't run it on dos 7.1 :(

What should I do to get it running?
