These are variables that the Effect takes into account when performing its calculations—the world, view, and projection matrices, or colors and textures, for example. Draw(); } } Creating a simple effect We will create our first effect now, and assign it to our models so that we can see the result. To begin, right-click on the content project, choose Add New Item, and select Effect File. fx: [ 48 ] Chapter 2 The code for the new file is as follows. 5, 1); } technique Technique1 { pass Pass1 { VertexShader = compile vs_1_1 VertexShaderFunction(); PixelShader = compile ps_2_0 PixelShaderFunction(); } } To assign this effect to the models in our scene, we need to first load it in the game's LoadContent() function, then use the SetModelEffect() function to assign the effect to each model.

One, GraphicsDevice)); camera = new ChaseCamera(new Vector3(0, 400, 1500), new Vector3(0, 200, 0), new Vector3(0, 0, 0), GraphicsDevice); 2. TotalMilliseconds * 4; } 3. Update(); } 4. And with that, we're finished! " A graphics profile is a set of features that are guaranteed to work on a certain machine, as long as the machine meets all of the requirements of that graphics profile. " Games developed with the Reach profile will work on a very large range of devices, but are limited in which graphics features they can use.

In order to measure the amount of mouse movement between frames, we need to be able to store the last frame's mouse state. We can then compare that mouse state to the current mouse state. ElapsedGameTime. Update(); // Update the mouse state lastMouseState = mouseState; } Run the game again, and you should be able to move and rotate the camera with the mouse and W, S, A, and D keys.
