One App, Two Custom Shaders ?
I have one application which is using two meshes, each with their own custom shader. Each shader has its own set of user parameters.
My question is how do I, codewise, get the shaders to be correctly applied, each to their corresponding mesh, without any interference between the two (which I'm currently getting)

Well, I can answer my own question...the solution was staring me in the face the whole time! blushing
1) Edit the "material_user_shader.enum.h" file to add your own second shader:
Code:
/******************************************************************************/
enum MATERIAL_USER_SHADER
{
   MUS_DEFAULT,
   MUS_CUSTOM ,
   MUS_CUSTOM2,
};
/******************************************************************************/

2)If you are using the Tutorial Shaders as a template for your own then in the "CompileShaders()" and "GetShader()" functions, make the references to your second shader a different name from the default "Custom Shader"
