Does anyone know of, or has written, or perhaps can write, a simple example of creating, texturing, and displaying one simple point sprite without any extras? I really want to learn to use them so I can attempt a particle engine. I read over the msdn SDK example and I just get so lost because it has millions of calculations, variables, and extra more complicated code. I also looked over the tutorials in msdn but thier texturing example doesn''t deal with alpha values. Things i am fuzzy on are: what fvf to use how to combine texture for alpha with color in the program (big one) what coords are needed, a single vertex, a triangle, or a quad how to change the size or mass of the particle (point sprite) I am pretty lost aren''t I? Saving up money for some good direct3d books but still trying to learn what i can until that time. I made an attempt at a program that is supposed to display one pointsprite large enough for the viewer to see however nothing is displayed and I can''t figure out why. I will include the source in case I am lucky enough to find someone willing to go through it.
