8WeekGame – Competition 2 – 3D Model Loaded….Just!


The game im doing is a 2D sidescrolling space shooter, with 3D Models. Im using free models from Turbosquid, and to be fair, there are not alot of free ones, and the one i wanted, i couldnt get the textures to load, so it just looked black:

As you can see, in the blackness of space, no one can hear (or see) you scream. So i decided to to change the model to something else, and what do you know, it works! All i changed was the model name i was loading to the Model class in XNA, so the original ship1.X file must of been corrupt somewhere. All i know is this 3D malark is stressful!

Now i need a fixed orthogonal view, then move onto the movement of the ship!  Anyway, here is a quick but boring vid:
