I have a question... a crazy question...

Post by Vergil » October 22nd, 2023, 12:31 pm

Okay, before I go on, I understand that the Z-buffer thing is a problem for the PSX...but umm..while I was going through the Libref, I was trying toing to figure out how the command :

SVECTOR array will translate to an setxy3( *p,x0,y0,x1,y1,x2,y2) ....properly. The way I see it, there's 3 x's and 3 y's. But how exactly does it go inside the macro function, without messing up the geometry ? Like, would you fit it inside the function, sequentially, with the first 3 vert coords of the SVECTOR fitting in there sv[0](x0), sv[1](y0), sv[2](x1), ...), or must it be alternated :?: :?: :?: . A simple clarification would be appreciated..... :crying :crying :crying

Surely the documentation explains the arguments. Try also running a search in the Sony samples to find an example :)

Yeah, I actually did find the explanation of the verts in comparison. It's really weird, but it still feels weird. Thats why I like rigorous EXPERIMENTATION
