Ok I had forgotten about the resource files. after adding them the problem was solved.
After making a little change to the:
and some to the:
file I managed to get the appwheeltest going
then I tried to make a new project (named apptwowheeledtest) and the appwheeledtest options and files the this so that they are Identical(i have only checked the visual studio project options and the source-header files is there anything else?).
but the whole thing falls apart in the new project.
I have attached screen shots of the first few frames. after the first few frames the camera start to look at nothing(not even the car) and it just somehow shows oblivian, that is I can only see the skybox. also note that the misplaced wheels are deliberate.
one last thing:
when I don't add wheels, i.e. not use AddWheelAuto, no problem occurs but then all I have got is the car body and no wheels.
