I'm loading texture via this function:
LPDIRECT3DTEXTURE8 CSprite::LoadTexture( char* filename, LPDIRECT3DDEVICE8 in_D3DDevice )
	//Black is the source color key, or use 0xFFFF00FF for magenta,
	//or use 0x00000000 for no color key.
	D3DCOLOR colorkey = 0xFF000000;


	D3DXCreateTextureFromFileEx( in_D3DDevice, filename, 0, 0, 1, 0, 
          colorkey, &SrcInfo , NULL, &Texture);

	return Texture;

It has 0,0 for the width and height, so what exactly does that mean? The texture can't have a width and height of 0. My problem is how do I find the center of the texture? I wanna divide the width and height by two, but they're set to 0. I need the center for rotation purposes. Any ideas? -Peta

D3DX_DEFAULT (or something similar) is what should be used, however, it's defined as 0, so the code still works. That tells D3DX to load the file at whatever resolution it is (rounded up to a power of 2).

The srcinfo will tell you the original image size, original format, etc.

You can also getleveldesc on the texture with level 0, after the load, to obtain information about the actual size and d3dformat the texture was loaded as.
