How do I save the contents of the frame buffer to a file (BMP, JPG, etc.)? There is a great little sample on how to do this in DX 8 but some of the interfaces were discontinued in DX 9. Thanks...

It's really easy [smile]. Just get the current rendertarget (the backbuffer), and write the surface to file, using D3DX.


LPDIRECT3DSURFACE9 pSurf;
pd3dDevice->GetRenderTarget( 0, &pSurf );

D3DXSaveSurfaceToFile( L"screenshot.bmp", D3DXIFF_BMP, pSurf, NULL, NULL );
pSurf->Release();
