How To Add Shaders?
While trying to create my own shader for a specific material, I noticed the "shader" drop down box but i don't see as anywhere i can add in actual shaders I've created. Also what is the desired format? .fx?

It's actually custom for EE.

Please look for \Tutorials\Source\Advanced\3 - Mesh, Shaders\Shaders

Ok, let me just preface the statement i'm about to make be reaffirming that I love this Engine. I really do. I think it has great potential and am very glad to be using it.

That being said, the fact that the tutorials are in a format that is totally alien to me is annoying. I can't for the life of me figure out why they wouldn't just be either written down or a video or something. Plus it would save a lot of time having to ask about a lot of stuff that I'm sure they cover.

Add your shader to the Enum list, and then set your material to the shader enum.. or you can do it by code..

Material mymatwithshader;

mymatwithshader.user_shader(Your enum.. if you only have basic i'd guess it'd say 2 or 3 here for yours.);

hope this was what you meant.

Man, it's always that semicolon...

creating/using custom shaders is covered in C++ tutorials
