Hello everyone!

I've just started using Dark GDK for my next year at college and I have already encountered a problem. I cant seem to load a 3d model into my game.

Here is my code;


I have put the .x file in projects\thisproject\thisproject but all I see is a black screen when I go to debug the game. I have also tried putting the load object command in the main loop with no luck.

Thanks for your time

You need to call the function you have created. The program does not start at the top, it starts at 'void DarkGDK(void)'.



If you still get a black screen then your object has not loaded, an empty blue screen means it loaded but your camera is not pointing at it. If you see a gun then you're good

Are you sure the model is in the correct place? It should be in the same directory as your main.cpp file for that project.

If the screen is indeed black I assume either the object is loaded and too close to the camera / the camera is inside the object or you are somehow not entering the main loop (calling sync).
Unless explicitly changed the 3d screen will be cleared to a blue colour (meaning the background will be drawn as blue).

It seems the fault was the .x and .3DS files I was using from the models folder that comes with Dark GDK.

I tried the models from the Dark Matter folder and they work fine.

Thanks for your help
