In Topic: [D3D9] Deferred Rendering: Point Lights (includes PICTURES)

23 November 2011 - 02:42 AM

I'm using PIX 9.26 for single-frame capturing and I can't step seem to step through the shader. All I get is the calls the main game loop makes to D3D functions. I'm no PIX expert, how would I go about doing that?


I got an error like "CreateTexture failed." everytime I attempt to debug a pixel in PIX, but if I turn off shadow mapping, I can debug pixels without that error, maybe this can help?

Take a look at this: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/572243-pix-error-with-createtexture/

Hello, Mr Hodgman, thanks for your reply!

I am very happy that you understand my point and give me useful suggestions, I appreciate it, thank you!

Hi, Mr Tachikoma, thank you for your great reply!

You advice is very constructive, and it can help me a lot.

Like you said, the reason I love RE(Reverse Engineering), is through RE I learned a lot, like debugging strategies, like debugging a crash dump of a release build, it's difficult if you don't know what's going on at the low level, like how the parameters being passed, and how to track them.

Thank you again, Mr Tachikoma.

Hello, dpadam450, Thank you for your reply.

Like you said, I am going to them, I can't afford to wait for recruiters coming to me, it won't happen:)
You gave me a definitely no on reverse engineering, it's not for games anyway. So your opinion is, I should not mention it in my resume and interviews? It's strictly prohibited or a gray area nobody would like to touch?
And is it OK to just mention it, I am going to apply a programming job anyway, not a reverse engineer.

Thank you again.

Thank you for your reply, Tom.I thought my resume was too normal, just C++, Direct3D and Lua, and so on, everybody has these items in his resume. How am I supposed to attract the recruiters at the first place?
So I think reverse engineering skill may make me different, through the demo, I want to show my passion in studying the great technologies and high performance, and I am qualified to work immediately. (Because reverse engineering is very time consuming, especially when you are trying to analyze the architecture rather than just crack a password protection.)


Now that it's not very marketable, and I also believe it's just a skill to solve problems, I think I should probably lower its priority, put more emphasis on elsewhere.

I have another concern: Will the recruiters feel uncomfortable when they see a reverse engineering demo? "What the heck is this guy thinking about? He is violating the law!", maybe something like this. I think, to different individuals, the answers vary, there is no universal answer to it, but your opinions will definitely help.

Thanks again.
