It's a very simple app which tests to see what 3d hardware you have and it's capabilities. If it runs correctly, you should get a message saying thankyou. A file named logfile.txt is produced, please email it to me or post results here. Either way, please post something to keep the thread alive. The demo requires DX8. As incentive, it'll tell you if your 3d card drivers are up to date. The maxstreams thing reported in the file will be >0 if you have D3D 8 drivers, 0 if you have D3D 6/7 drivers. The file is found here. Thanks very much, particularly interested in older cards. All systems you have, please test. It will detect multiple adapters, so anyone with a dual head card or 2 graphics cards, please check this works! EDIT Now have data on the GF256,GF2MX,GF2,3,4 & Radeon8500. Looking for those of you with other cards. Matrox? Other ATI? TNT/TNT2? Rage? etc etc... Cheers

OK, may have found the problem - I have no message loop as none is needed, so thought I could get away with no WndProc function. I''ve added one now, and a window appears, so obviously messages were being sent to it at creation. Also added a bit more debug stuff - you also get a file log.txt which tells you what happened. The last line in this file should be
"Closing log file..."
Can you try again if possible, will be up in 5-10 minutes.
Yeah, to remind you - if the streams==0 or pointsize=0 or 0.000 or 1 or 1.00, you do NOT have a D3D 8 driver installed for your 3d card and some effects won''t work (pointsprites won''t be visible for example).
Same link, here it is.
Thanks everyone.
