Hi guys, I''m realtively new to DirectX programming and I''ve got a few questions: If I have an image I want to use as a button in a game, do I *really* have to use D3DXIntersect to detect if the mouse click is on the button? And would it be better(performance and code-wise) to have 2 vertex buffers, one for the in-game 2D UI interface and the other for the 3D graphics? Thanks alot

If you image is just on the screen, like in an ortho projection then you should know where its at, just do a couple if''s on the mouse position and the image. As far as using more then one vertex buffer. I use opengl but im pritty sure then you should have lots of vertex buffers for your game. Not one huge one. So adding another for the gui seems right.
