Can't get the game backround to look right

Recommended Posts

Well, hello there. My problem is that i try to make a 640*480 window(not fullscreen) with a 640*480 pixture as background.(DX8) When i load the picture and draw it a small part of the picture in the right and the bottom is gone. Also, the picture is blurry. 1. The window''s not the right size. I think that the window including borders is 640*480 and i don''t know how to fix so only the drawing area is 640*480. I use this function to initialise the window: HWND hWnd = CreateWindow("Game", "Game test", WS_BORDER|WS_SYSMENU|WS_MINIMIZEBOX , 50, 50, 640, 480, GetDesktopWindow(), NULL, wc.hInstance, NULL); 2. I can''t turn off the texture filters, even if i try the picture gets blurry. I use g_pD3DDevice->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_MAGFILTER , D3DTEXF_NONE); g_pD3DDevice->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_MIPFILTER , D3DTEXF_NONE); g_pD3DDevice->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_MAGFILTER , D3DTEXF_NONE); doesn''t work though. Please tell me what''s wrong

Your first problem is easy enough: first, get the size of the window using "GetWindowRect", then, get the size of the client area using "GetClientRect". Determine the difference (which is basically the size of the borders), add it to your desired client area size and call "SetWindowPos" to make your window the appropriate size.

You can use AdjustWindowRect before creating window

RECT rect = { 0, 0, WindowWidth, WindowHeight };
AdjustWindowRectEx( &rect, dwStyles, false, 0 );
// then in CreateWindow() you use:

rect.right + abs(rect.left), // Window Width

rect.bottom + abs(, // Window Height

// to set the size

First problem solved. Now for the second problem. As i told you, it won''t render it without blurring it alot. I''ve tried to turn the texture filters off, but i can''t. If you see this picture you''ll hopefully know what i mean(the left one is how i want it, the right one is as it renders)

I really need help

Now i have almost solved the second problem. I think i know where the problem is, the hard bit is to solve it. when i change the following row:

D3DXCreateTextureFromFileEx(*g_pD3DDevice, texturepath,640,480,D3DX_DEFAULT,0,D3DFMT_UNKNOWN,D3DPOOL_MANAGED,D3DX_DEFAULT,D3DX_FILTER_NONE ,0xFFFF00FF,NULL,NULL,&bg_texture);


D3DXCreateTextureFromFileEx(*g_pD3DDevice, texturepath,640,480,D3DX_DEFAULT,0,D3DFMT_UNKNOWN,D3DPOOL_MANAGED,D3DX_FILTER_NONE,D3DX_FILTER_NONE ,0xFFFF00FF,NULL,NULL,&bg_texture);

the picture shrinks alot and gets really weird. I don't know what to do, why it isn't working. I don't think my 3d coordinates are wrong but tell me if you think they are:

pVertices[0].x = 0.0f;
pVertices[0].y = 480.0f;
pVertices[1].x = 0.0f;
pVertices[1].y = 0.0f;
pVertices[2].x = 640.0f;
pVertices[2].y = 0.0f;
pVertices[3].x = 640.0f;
pVertices[3].y = 480.0f;

pVertices[0].z = 1.0f;
pVertices[1].z = 1.0f;
pVertices[2].z = 1.0f;
pVertices[3].z = 1.0f;

pVertices[0].rhw = 1.0f;
pVertices[1].rhw = 1.0f;
pVertices[2].rhw = 1.0f;
pVertices[3].rhw = 1.0f;
