I''m trying to draw a tiled floor by having a texture repeat on a two-triangle square. However, the whole square just adopts the color of the texture at pixel (0,0). this is my custom vertex:
struct TexVertex
{
D3DXVECTOR3 pos;
D3DXVECTOR3 norm;
int tu, tv;
TexVertex( const D3DXVECTOR3* posIn, const D3DXVECTOR3* normIn, int tuIn,
int tvIn )
: pos( *posIn ), norm( *normIn), tu( tuIn ), tv( tvIn ){}
TexVertex& operator=( const TexVertex& in )
{ pos = in.pos; norm = in.norm; tu = in.tu; tv = in.tv; return *this; }
};
#define D3DFVF_TEXVERTEX ( D3DFVF_XYZ | D3DFVF_TEX1 | D3DFVF_NORMAL )

This is where I set up the vertex buffer:
    // set up floorBuf

TexVertex floorVertices[] =
{
TexVertex( &D3DXVECTOR3( 0, 0, 0 ), &D3DXVECTOR3( 0, 0, -1 ),
0, tiles ), // bottom left

TexVertex( &D3DXVECTOR3( 0, Globals::tileSize * tiles, 0 ),
&D3DXVECTOR3( 0, 0, -1 ), 0, 0 ), // top left

TexVertex( &D3DXVECTOR3( Globals::tileSize * tiles, 0, 0 ),
&D3DXVECTOR3( 0, 0, -1 ), tiles, tiles ), // bottom right

TexVertex( &D3DXVECTOR3( Globals::tileSize * tiles,
Globals::tileSize * tiles, 0 ),
&D3DXVECTOR3( 0, 0, -1 ), tiles, 0 ) // top right

};
void* pFloorVertices;

if( D3D_OK != pd3dDevice->CreateVertexBuffer(
4 * sizeof( TexVertex ), 0,
D3DFVF_TEXVERTEX, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &floorBuf ) )
throw "FAILED to allocate vertex buffer for floor";

if( FAILED( floorBuf->Lock( 0, sizeof( floorVertices ),
(BYTE**)&pFloorVertices, 0 ) ) )
throw "FAILED to lock vertex buffer for floor";

memcpy( pFloorVertices, floorVertices, sizeof( floorVertices ) );
floorBuf->Unlock();

and here''s where I draw the floor:
    D3DMATERIAL8 floorMat = { { 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, },
{ 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, },
{ 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, },
{ 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, }, 0.0f, };
pd3dDevice->SetMaterial( &floorMat );

pd3dDevice->SetTexture( 0, tileTex->getResource() );

pd3dDevice->SetStreamSource( 0, floorBuf, sizeof( TexVertex ) );
pd3dDevice->DrawPrimitive( D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2 );

The program''s already pretty extensive (despite my ignorance on these simple things) because I''ve been loading all graphics till now from .x files. Chances are most likely that I''ve messed up something simple but if everything seems aok then it''s possible a default setting necessary to simple texture tiling was changed somwhere. Thanks for any help

I''m not sure if this helps, but I figure I''ll offer what I''ve go LOL.

For a texture to "tile" the specifed texture coordinates must be greater than 1.0. I believe you are using 0 and for your texture coords... if you used 0 and 2, it will tile twice.

figured it out. I hate how such stupid things are always so frustrating. I needed the texture coordinates in my custom vertex to be floats rather than ints. problem solved

Oh yea that would be bad... FVF is very exact hehe.
