Hi guys,

I'm working on a simple little engine project and am trying to construct & animate a cube.
This code largely follows the 4th tutorial from the dx11 sample browser with some wrapper stuff thrown in.
It compiles & runs just fine but the cube is nowhere to be found!
At first I figured it must have something to do with inputting the vertex positions incorrectly or the fact that the Cube object uses XMFLOAT4X4 objects (for the wvp matrixes) which necessitates the use of XMLoadFloat4x4() and XMStoreFloat4x4() but as far as I can tell the matrixes are fine. What am I missing here?
The shader code is just a copy & paste job from the tutorial.
The engine objects (cube & graphman) are used by the test project in the form of a static linked library if that makes any difference.


Here is some (hopefully) relevant code. I didn't want to just post the whole thing.
You can see the rest of the code in the rar files that I attached.
I just rarred the project folders so you might have to do some fiddling.

TestGame.cpp - the draw method clears the render target and Cube::Draw is called but obviously isn't working.

TestGame::TestGame(Graphman& p_graph)
	: AbstractGame(), m_rGraphman(p_graph)
{
	m_pCube = new Cube(p_graph);
	m_pCube->initialize();
}

void TestGame::Draw()
{
	m_rGraphman.clearRenderTarget(0.0f, 0.125f, 0.3f, 1.0f);

	if(m_pCube)
		m_pCube->draw();


	m_rGraphman.present();
}

cube.cpp
#include "Cube.h"


Cube::Cube(Graphman& p_graphman)
	: GraphObject3D(p_graphman),
	m_pConstantBuffer(NULL)
{
	m_numFaces = 12; //two faces per side since every quad consists of two triangles
	m_numVertices = 8;

	initialize();
}

void Cube::initialize()
{
	//VERTEX BUFFER
	SimpleVertex vertices[] =

Use PIX and check if anything is being drawn

I'm currently using PIX to try and figure this out - here's what I get:

PIX Logfile created at: 18:32:34

<SNIP>
Frame 000001 ........POST: <><this=0x05c81fa0> ID3D11DeviceContext::OMSetRenderTargets(1, 0x018F1F44, NULL)
Frame 000001 ........PRE: <this=0x05c364c0>ID3D11Texture2D::Release()
Frame 000001 ........POST: <0><this=0x05c364c0> ID3D11Texture2D::Release()
An unhandled exception occurred.

The program runs fine when I run it via VS2010 but inside PIX it seems that I'm not setting up my D3D correctly.
The peculiar thing is that this exception originially occured at ID3D11DeviceContext::OMSetRenderTargets(1, 0x018F1F44, NULL).
When I moved the call to Release() (at first I released before calling SetRenderTarget()) this is how far it got.
This leads me to believe something is going wrong in the next step (which is creation of shaders). When I check the creation results via visual studio breakpoints they turn out fine though.
I tried putting the shader file in the same directory as PIX but that didn't do anything.



EDIT: managed to get PIX running correctly by setting the folder from which to run the executable. I'm still learning to use it but I can see that the call to DrawIndexed is being made

found the problem - turns out my testprogram was using a different shader from its directory (which had the same filename but different code!). Thanks anyway
