DirectX Mesh Loading

It's been awhile since my last post. I got a little burned out on meshes after working on the xfile format. I did recently write a little app that lets me load my walking sequence and walk the little "Jake" model around. Here's a video.

This is just a DirectX 8 application with a skinned .x file loaded. I'm going to create a really simple character and start playing with breaking up the animations by lower and upper body as well as moving the head where the camera is pointing. It will support jump, swing, run, walk, back up, sit, and lay. We'll see how it goes. After that I might start working on lighting a little. but, it would be neat to get more than one person moving things. My editor is comign along well. I have a short buglist and then its on to deployment code. If anyone is interested in trying it out let me know in the reply.

Happy Coding!
