Hi I am using directx9 But i have some problem of face . I really don't know how to handle this problem. I am showing some Ascii Work for my problem Take a figure-1 look this one cube that loading from .x file But i don't Why it's render face 1,4 . I had seen some programe like deep exploration that not rendering this faces.Basically i am showing solid+outline object.I had checked in also directx7 retain mode sample has also not rendering 1,4 face. So why directx9 rendering this face.

In deep exploration or Directx7 retain mode sample rendering like this in same file figure-2

3------4
figure-2

My faces structure like this 3:1,2,3,4, so it is has more than 3 faces in one line of .x file. So any good suggestion and help require :) thanx

With D3DRS_CULLMODE, you can remove faces that have clockwise or counterclockwise vertices. In other words, faces that are facing the other way.

Direct3D can only handle polygons of 3 vertices, so only triangles.
