Delphi 3D Engine Question

Hi all,

I recently downloaded TrueVistion3D Engine 6.5 but there's no documentation yet.

I need to know how to load a skybox using delphi.

I've searched their forum but there's not much for delphi and 6.5 version so I was wondering if someone here knew how to do this.

Here's how it's done:


 Atmos: TTVAtmosphere;


Then you just do this:

    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\front.jpg', 'SkyBoxFront', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false),
    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\back.jpg', 'SkyboxBack', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false),
    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\left.jpg', 'SkyboxLeft', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false),
    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\right.jpg', 'SkyboxRight', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false),
    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\top.jpg', 'SkyboxTop', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false),
    TexFactory.LoadTexture('.\sky\bottom.jpg', 'SkyboxBottom', -1, -1, TV_COLORKEY_NO, false));

    //Enable the Atmosphere

Don't forget to create it the object:

atmos := TTVAtmosphere.Create(self);

If you need more help just let me know.
