tiny_4anim.x (tutorial 20) scaling

Jan 20, 2011 at 7:01 AM

Hello all,

I am having issues re-creating tutorial20 (with only 1 instance of an actor). When I instantiate and draw the actor with the tiny_4anim.x, the Tiny model is HUGE. So large in fact, that the created ground-disk is dwarfed. I am using the model resources directly from the tutorials and cannot find the code where tutorial20 scales the model down to fit in the ground disk.

I get around this by multiplying the world matrix for the Actor by a scaling matrix, but I'd prefer to understand where in tutorial20 Tiny gets scaled, since I cannot find it. Can anyone familiar with this help me out with the answer?

Thanks in advance!

ah, the scaling is in the properties for the resource, not the code. Missed that for a while in vs2010 since the Content Processor properties are contracted by default.
