| VERY IMPORTANT CHANGES|
This new verison of SpriteControl has had a major overall. Therefore, quite a few subtle changes have occured.
Here's a rundown on whats changed:
One big improvement though is 'pixel-perfect' sprites at last.
I *MUST* thank skidracer though for his pixie routines.
Also, this version needs at least v.185 of Blitz3D to run.
LoadAnimImage3D() now has an extra framesY parameter to allow loading of images where the animation is laid out in both colums AND rows. The first frame number of the animation has changed to 1 (instead of 0).
ModifyText3D no longer needs to know the texture of the sprite.
The handle/hotspot of loaded sprites is now top/left by default. See the new MidHandle3D command
DrawImage3D handles animations with a new 'frame' parameter
The global variables in SpriteControl are now called:
spritecamera - handle of the main camera created by the SpriteGraphics3D command
spritepivot - handle of the sprite pivot created by the SpriteGraphics3D command
SpritePivotZoom. See CameraZoom3D
CreateSpriteCamera. Use CreateSpritePivot instead
SpriteGraphics3D - for easy setting up of the 3d display
EndGraphics3D - free up sprites, textures, brushes, and close the screen in one call
CameraZoom3D - zoom the main camera and update the sprite pivot simultaneously
MidHandle3D - centers the quads handle
ImageToSprite - creates a sprite from an already loaded 2d image
FreeImage3D - Cleans up an exiting sprite
GetSpriteTexture - returns the handle of the sprites texture
ImagesOverlap3D() - test if two sprites are overlapping
Please see the new online webpage for more details.
;;; Example Usage Include "Sprite Control.bb" SpriteGraphics3D width,height ; set up your 3D graphics display myimage=LoadImage3D("example.bmp") ; load/create 3d image and attach to the sprite camera Repeat .... do 3d stuff DrawImage3D myimage,MouseX(),MouseY() ; positions the 3d sprite at mouse coordinates RenderWorld .... draw 2d stuff here Flip Until KeyHit(1) End
