Hi. I just finished scripting my Direct X 8 Game engine and now I want to add a background to it, however, I do not want to go through all the hassle of creating a plane to display the picture. Is their an easier way to do it? I don''t mind which format the picture should be in either. Please help. Regards, Luke

I don''t see how creating a quad can be much of a hassle, but if you really want to avoid it you can use CopyRects (which won''t give you very good performance, but it''s okay for menus and other non-critical stuff) or D3DXSprite.
