dx9

Recommended Posts

Hi all, It''s been a long time since I was last on here and due to work commitments not had much time of late to keep up with what is going on in the game coding side of things. Anyway, noticed that dx9 is out, im downloading it as I type, just wondered (sorry if I''m being lazy asking this) but, will the dx9 sdk work with my code that uses the dx8 sdk - I know I will have to change the interface to the direct9 one, but is there any other programming issues ? I''m sure I will find more out when I''ve finally got dx9 sdk downloaded, but it''s gonna take a while! Thanks in advance, sTeVe

some functions have changed a bit... extra parameters, etc, some changed names/functions (i.e. SetVertexShader() now SetFVF() ).

and of course all of the 8''s go to 9''s

so...

depending on the size of your code, switching could be a pain.

Thanks Warspawn,

I''ve finally got dx9 sdk downloaded, what I''ve read about it so far, sounds great. Of course, certain stuff in my code will need changing but that''s to be expected.

How many you guys on here using dx9 ?

Thanks as always,
sTeVe
