container 8"w x 18"d x 18"h; a calculator was called a slide rule........are
you beginning to understand? ;-)
And to simply say "a calculator can convert any decimal to hex" is a
meaningless statement when the initial decimal value is unknown (by me)!!
To assume that everyone who dabbles in things to do with computers is fully
acquainted with the bits and bytes that make up the programs isn't being very
realistic! Just like cars, most of us jump in and as long as it starts, we're
more than pleased. We don't need to know what makes it go or even why it
works....just as long as it _does_ work is what is important.
Anyway, it seems that NOVA writes the "Dbx..." code automatically and that was
what I was attempting to confirm. And because of that, a "night time" specific
texture is required if one wants to see his object in the dark. That too, was
unknown to me and is what precipitated my asking questions from the start. It
would seem therefore, that NOVA is a bit unique in this regard when compared
with the other design programs that I am accustomed to using. I must have
missed something in the "Help" section.
Thanks anyway for replying, Raphael.....take care.
