i wonder if it''s possible to render a texture using the following FVF #define D3DFVF_CUSTOMVERTEX(D3DFVF_XYZRHW|D3DFVF_SPECULAR|D3DFVF_DIFFUSE|D3DFVF_TEX1) rendering works fine for D3DFVF_XYZ but using D3DFVF_XYZRHW it doesn''t work at all. am i missing something? any help would be welcome

sure it''s possible. did you add an additional float into your vertex struct to account for the new w component? if so, did you make sure to set each vert''s w component value to something meaningful?

Remember that use of D3DFVF_XYZRHW is basically telling D3D that your vertices have already been transformed. That means that they are in screen space. Your w component will usually be 1.0f

here ist the code i use:
//the customvertex struct
D3DXVECTOR3 position; // vertex position
float rhw;
D3DXVECTOR3 color; // vertex color
float tu,tv;


//vertex setup
float x=512.0f, y=512.0f;

CUSTOMVERTEX vertices[4];
vertices[0].position=D3DXVECTOR3(-x, y, 0.0f);
vertices[0].color=D3DXVECTOR3(255.0, 255.0, 255.0);

vertices[1].position=D3DXVECTOR3(x, y, 0.0f);
vertices[1].color=D3DXVECTOR3(255.0, 255.0, 255.0);

vertices[2].position=D3DXVECTOR3(-x, -y, 0.0f);
vertices[2].color=D3DXVECTOR3(255.0, 255.0, 255.0);

vertices[3].position=D3DXVECTOR3(x, -y, 0.0f);
vertices[3].color=D3DXVECTOR3(255.0, 255.0, 255.0);

//loading and setting the texture
if( FAILED( D3DXCreateTextureFromFile(g_pd3dDevice, "wallpaper.bmp",&g_pTexture)))
return E_FAIL;

and the renderstates
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_LIGHTING, FALSE); // Lighting off.
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_CULLMODE, D3DCULL_NONE);// Culling off.

g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_MODULATE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_MODULATE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE );

g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_TEXTURETRANSFORMFLAGS, D3DTTFF_COUNT2 );
g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_TEXCOORDINDEX, D3DTSS_TCI_PASSTHRU );

// Set miscellaneous render states
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_DITHERENABLE, TRUE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_SPECULARENABLE, FALSE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_ZENABLE, TRUE );
g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_AMBIENT, 0x000F0F0F );

i cant figure out why there isn't any texture on my rect.
please help!

I think the colour is wrong. I''m pretty sure you can''t use a vector like that. It should be a DWORD or one of D3DX''s own ones, which is basically the same. I have the same vertex structure in my own program I am currently working on and it works fine. Just correct the colour and you should be fine.

i changed the color using a DWORD now, but still it doesn''t render anything.
BTW: AFAIK is the D3DXCOLOR struct quite similar to the D3DXVECTOR3 i used. its only 4 floats not 3, but this shouldn''t be a prob, because acc. to microsoft the alpha will be set to 1 by default.

D3DFVF_DIFFUSE or whatever color component you specify expect a DWORD as higherspeed mentioned.

Well, D3D's equivalent for DWORD is D3DCOLOR(when specifying colors) and you have several macros to specify color components such as D3DCOLOR_XRGB, D3DCOLOR_ARGB, D3DCOLOR_RGBA ...

I think the reason nothing shows up is that the range for your vertices is too large. Your vertices seem to be in the range of [-512..512] on both x and y axis. The problem is that D3DFVF_XYZRHW uses screen space coordinates (i.e. [0..screenWidth] and [0..screenHeight]).

The second tutorial from the SDK has an example of rendering a colored screen spaced triangle. Take a look at it if you need to refresh your memory.
