Space background, with blue material for highlighting. I am going to tweak the blue, but I guess I like it.
Lot's of things changed to allow the skybox to work with the menu. It was basiclly getting newed on and deleted at strange times. But it was super quick to put it at that time. All I really had to do was add my silly extentions release and restore which get called for every 3d object when the deivce is lost and restored.
And, I still have that memory leak, which does not allow me to properly change resolutions in windowed mode. The dx frame work says it cannot restore the device, so I figure something is not getting released, but I think that is known already. *sigh*
This all makes me feel like I should drop this first-attempt over-designed mess. But, I guess if I can make it work still, then I should just keep adding. The more things that do not work the way I think they should (on my first attempt), the better.
