    Mouse Coordinates

    Hi.

    I'm trying to figure out when the player clicks on a 3d sprite. Which method would be the easiest to perform this check?

    Thanks!

    Re: Mouse Coordinates

    Record a z-buffer of all your screen, and link sprites ID's into it and then compare to that?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z-buffer

    Basically, a pixel has doesn't just have a color, but also a depth value that describes how far the visible object on the pixel is away.

    Re: Mouse Coordinates

    Totally off topic but does anyone know whats happening with the development for these objects?

    Seems it has been a while since there was any news for them now.

    Re: Mouse Coordinates

    Yah, your pixel array should have

    *Depth (the Z value, duh)
    *Pixel Color
    *Pointer to object (ID)

    that way simply clicking on a specific pixel will access
    depending on implementations ie hardware vs software, these could be simultaneous sidebyside 2 dimensional arrays, or a single 3 dimensional array. In opengl I assume it would be the former

    Re: Mouse Coordinates

    Hopefully if Min is still making the collection a bounding box, depth test or full collision events object with these types of options could be added. This would be quite a useful extension for the collection i think.

    Re: Mouse Coordinates

    You should use the GL_SELECT render mode for this-- a nice tutorial can be found here
