Hi, Does anybody know why I have more fps (1600 fps) in debug mode like in release mod (500 fps). ?? When I try it on other PC, it was ok ( debug 1000 fps, release 2500 fps). I have DX8.1 SDK on ma computer. Thanks.!

Could be that you have the debug-version of DX installed on your computer. Even if you compile and run on your comp. Debug-mode will be used. You can set DirectX to use releasemode in windows controlpanel/DirectX

Run your program in a debugger and turn the debug output level up to maximum in the control panel.

The debug DX runtimes filter "silly" mistakes you may have made. The retail DX runtimes won''t - so they just pass on any mistakes to hardware.
