Fog can be used in 3D games to make objects in the distance look blurred or even disappear, which helps in creating atmosphere and it also masks the fact that you are not drawing objects that are far away. Note that The fog start indicates the radius relative to the viewpoint where the fog starts, and the fog end indicates at which radius (also relative) objects will be completely invisible.


d3d_set_fog(true, c_white, 1000, 2000);
