I''m building a tool for a game that uses D3D. Basically it allows you to add cheaters for the game so that you won''t play them again. I''v had to hook the d3d interface so i can make use of the games use of D3D. Basically i have a function which draws a texture on screen in screen coordinates, it draws the texture on my computer but when i tested it on some other computers, it does not. Heres the function to draw a box with a texture on it:
void DrawTextureBox(float Xpos, float Ypos, float width, float height, LPDIRECT3DTEXTURE8 g_texture, float MaxMagnify)
	unsigned char *Temp_Vertexbuff;
	DWORD OldBlend;
	DWORD OldColorArg1;
	DWORD OldAlphaOp;
	DWORD OldAlphaArg;
	DWORD OldColorOp;

	g_d3d_device->GetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, &OldColorOp);
	g_d3d_device->GetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, &OldColorArg1);
	g_d3d_device->GetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, &OldAlphaOp);
	g_d3d_device->GetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, &OldAlphaArg);

    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLOROP,   D3DTOP_SELECTARG1);
    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE);	
    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_MAGFILTER, D3DTEXF_LINEAR);
    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_MINFILTER, D3DTEXF_LINEAR);

	//This enables Alpha Blending
   g_d3d_device->GetRenderState(D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE, &OldBlend);


	g_d3d_device->GetTexture(0, &Old_Texture);
	g_d3d_device->SetTexture(0, g_texture);
	//top left of box
	g_square_vertices[0].color = 0xFFFFFFFF;
	g_square_vertices[0].x = Xpos;
	g_square_vertices[0].y = Ypos;
	g_square_vertices[0].z = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[0].rhw = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[0].tu = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[0].tv = 0.0f;

	//bottom left of box
	g_square_vertices[1].color = 0xFFFFFFFF;
	g_square_vertices[1].x = Xpos;
	g_square_vertices[1].y = Ypos + height;
	g_square_vertices[1].z = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[1].rhw = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[1].tu = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[1].tv = MaxMagnify;

	//top right of box
	g_square_vertices[2].color = 0xFFFFFFFF;
	g_square_vertices[2].x = Xpos + width;
	g_square_vertices[2].y = Ypos;
	g_square_vertices[2].z = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[2].rhw = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[2].tu = MaxMagnify;
	g_square_vertices[2].tv = 0.0f;

	//bottom right of box
	g_square_vertices[3].color = 0xFFFFFFFF;
	g_square_vertices[3].x = Xpos + width;
	g_square_vertices[3].y = Ypos + height;
	g_square_vertices[3].z = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[3].rhw = 0.0f;
	g_square_vertices[3].tu = MaxMagnify;
	g_square_vertices[3].tv = MaxMagnify;

	hr=g_square->Lock(0, 0, &Temp_Vertexbuff, 0);

	memcpy(Temp_Vertexbuff, g_square_vertices, sizeof(g_square_vertices));



	g_d3d_device->SetStreamSource(0, g_square, sizeof(my_vertex));

	g_d3d_device->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2);



    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLOROP, OldColorOp);	
    g_d3d_device->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLORARG1, OldColorArg1);
    g_d3d_device->SetTexture(0, Old_Texture);

You''ll notice, anything i change, it restores back for safety of not recking the games graphics. It may also be my texture loading code that may be the fault, so i''ll put that here:
	hr=D3DXCreateTextureFromResourceEx(g_d3d_device, //Our Direct3D device
                                     HDll,   //Our ''instance'', NULL uses current
                                     (LPCSTR) ANTIBACK,
                                     0, NULL, NULL, 

Is there a SetRenderState that may disable textures from being drawn??? Is there anything wrong with my Texture loading code? Is there any other SetRenderStates i might need to enable?

Are you sure it''s finding the textures correctly? The number one cause of "textures work in situation A, but not in situation B" is that you''re running the program in a manner that it has a different working directory, one in which it cannot find the textures.

The textures are in the programs resource, so it should be able to find it with the D3DXCreateTextureFromResource API. I even checked the retuen value of the API to make sure it was not FAILED, and it seems to load the texture correctly even on computers that don''t display the texture.

I bet it renders correctly on an ATI card, hehe

I did a box like that for my UI (see post GeForce vs ATI).
ATI works fine with rhw = 0.0f, but GeForce needs rhw = 1.0f,
both cards work when you set rhw = 1.0f

also :
g_d3d_device->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2);

you need to set a FVF for TLVERTEX's

Hope this helps

ok, i got what you meant on the first part, but what do you mean by this:

also :
g_d3d_device->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2);

you need to set a FVF for TLVERTEX''s
