Too bad the search feature is currently disabled, because this question has been asked quite a bit (FAQ candidate, maybe?). "Failed to create driver indexbuffer" is just a harmless warning telling you that your graphics hardware does not support hardware-based index buffers (only newer DX8+ cards do, IIRC). This information will not affect your application in any significant way, so you don't have to worry about it. [smile]

Yeah this question has been asked many times before, and I'll second it's candidacy for FAQness. What circlesoft said is basically correct - it's harmless and just means the index buffer was not placed in hardware memory (that's why it says INFO and not WARNING or ERROR). As for what supports index buffer in hardware, well I've had a GeForce, GeForce 4 Ti, Radeon 9800 and GeForce 6800 and every one of them has come up with that INFO message while I've been developing.

Apparently, IHV's do some pretty naughty things with their drivers. This has been suggested here before by some very knowlegable people who have lots of experience with video drivers [wink]. I have both a Raedon 9600xt and 9800xt, and they both come up with that info.

A good deal of hardware doesn't actualy support index buffers - instead just copying the indices into the command stream. This might be what you are seeing.
