Im working on a sort-of 2d/3d modeller using direct3d8 and mfc. Im having problems when the window gets resized, because my sprites are using RHW inside the fvf, so im specifying pixels as size. When the window gets resized, my sprites change shape, growing and shrinking. What can i do to keep thing from happening? I have a camera class which i used for scrolling, but should i add a member called "scale", and have the sprites use that, and recalculate it when the window is resized? Is there an easier way?

When you create the device you specify a backbuffer, when running windowed the same size as the window. Say 400x300.
When you resize it to 500x400 the backbuffer remains 400x300, and the output gets slightly stretched.
What you can do is release all objects (vertex buffers and textures) created with D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, reset the device and restore those objects.
Then of course update your variables that hold window width and height so you can use those for your rwh coordinates.
