Can''t you create index buffers in video memory with DirectX7? Every exmaple I see uses a system memory based buffer.

You can''t on most DirectX 8 drivers either!

[Or more specifically 99% of graphics chips out there don''t support index buffers in hardware].


DirectX 7 doesn''t have index buffers - so where the indices were copied to was entirely the decision of the driver. The driver uses hints passed to calls to decide on behavior.
