Hi. I have a program that displays a 3D Cube. I have a class for the Cube that is being inherited from a base class (baseprimitive) which has all the VertexBuffer, IndexBuffer, Vertex struct array and another WORD variable for the indexs. LPDIRECT3DVERTEXBUFFER9 m_pVertexBuffer; LPDIRECT3DINDEXBUFFER9 m_pIndexBuffer; LPDIRECT3DTEXTURE9 m_pTexture; WORD m_cubeIndices[36]; // Holds the Indexes Vertex m_cubeVerticesValues[24];//array of struct for vertices If in the base class (baseprimitive) I explicitly declare the sizes of the Vertex struct and the WORD Index array (for a Cube 24/36) it works great! BUT if I declare them as pointers and allocate the memory (using 'new' operator) in the derived class it doesn't work, it does compile and no error when I debug it, but I see a black screen instead of a cube, any ideas why ??? ofcourse in the base class I do all the: CreateVertexBuffer(), CreateIndexBuffer() Lock(), memcpy() and Unlock(). Thanks!!
