Reset Device

Recommended Posts

I keep getting D3DERR_INVALIDCALL. Anyone know why this is happening?

bool CheckDeviceState()
{
    HRESULT hResult;

    hResult = d3dDevice->TestCooperativeLevel();

	}
    else if(hResult == D3DERR_DEVICENOTRESET) {
	    
		// Free all D3DPOOL_DEFAULT objects and fonts


		g_Font.Lost();
		mainCharacter.Lost();

		gameObjects.DeleteObject(CHARACTER, "Main" );
		
		// Reset Device


		ZeroMemory( &d3dpp, sizeof(d3dpp) );

Any number of things... Most likely you didn''t release and your resources. You must release all resources allocated with D3DPOOL_DEFAULT before you can reset the device, and then remake them when you are done. It''s a pain, I know . You can skip this problem by using D3DPOOL_MANAGED. The driver will keep a copy in system memory and load it to the card when it finds something wrong. It''s a little slower (little as in probably not noticable except on big projects) than D3DPOOL_DEFAULT but it might be worth it for the trouble you save.

I tried commenting out all of the objects that I created except for the D3DPOOL_MANAGED ones and the program still crashes with a "Could not reset d3dDevice" error message once I alt-tab back into the program.

anyone else have any ideas?

Sorry, I''m not exactly sure how it works. I do know that things created with DEFAULT will need to be recreated, but I''m not sure what you have to do with managed. I do know that you won''t need to recreate them. Have you checked the MSDN?
