Hey all, ***SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER PROBLEM*** I've been attempting to get some 2D graphics displayed using textured quads. Everything seems to be loading fine, but when I display my quad, I only get 1 triangle and it isn't the right size or in the right position.
HRESULT Graphics2D::Init(HWND hwnd, bool windowed){
	d3dObject = Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION);
	if (d3dObject == NULL)
		return E_FAIL;

    ZeroMemory( &d3dpp, sizeof(d3dpp) );
	d3dpp.BackBufferWidth = 1024;
	d3dpp.BackBufferHeight = 768;
    d3dpp.Windowed = windowed;
    d3dpp.SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_FLIP;
    d3dpp.hDeviceWindow = hwnd;
    d3dpp.BackBufferCount = 1;
    d3dpp.BackBufferFormat = D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8;
	d3dpp.PresentationInterval = D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_IMMEDIATE;

    if( FAILED( d3dObject->CreateDevice( D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, D3DDEVTYPE_HAL, hwnd,
                                      D3DCREATE_HARDWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING, &d3dpp, &d3dDevice ) ) )
        return E_FAIL;

	d3dDevice->CreateVertexBuffer(sizeof(TLVERTEX) * 4, NULL,
								  D3DFVF_TLVERTEX, D3DPOOL_MANAGED, &vertexBuffer, NULL);
	d3dDevice->SetStreamSource(0, vertexBuffer, 0, sizeof(TLVERTEX));
	d3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_LIGHTING, FALSE);
	d3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE, TRUE);
	d3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_SRCALPHA);
	d3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_MODULATE);

	font -> InitDeviceObjects( d3dDevice );
	font -> RestoreDeviceObjects();

	quad = new TexQuad(this, "rainbowtex.jpg");
	position.left = 64;
	position.right = 128;
	position.top = 64;
	position.bottom = 128;

	return S_OK;

  vertexBuffer->Lock(0, 0, (void**)&vertices, NULL);

  //Setup vertices
  //A -0.5f modifier is applied to vertex coordinates to match texture
  //and screen coords. Some drivers may compensate for this

  //Unlock the vertex buffer

  //Set texture
  d3dDevice->SetTexture (0, texture->getTexRef().d3dTex);
  //Draw image
  d3dDevice->DrawPrimitive (D3DPT_TRIANGLEFAN, 0, 2);

TexQuad::TexQuad(Graphics2D* handle, char* filename)
	texRef.d3dTex = handle->LoadTexture("C:\\Programming\\NewGame\\yellow.jpg");
	texRef.posNum = 0;
	texRef.animPoint = 0;

Thanks in advance for any help, Jeff [Edited by - GodlyGamr on June 5, 2005 6:18:46 PM]

Thanks for the article, streamer, and welcome to gamedev. It was a good read, but my blitd3d function is (almost, not in any way that should cause this behavior) identical to the function in the tutorial I am following. The function works with the sample code from the tutorial, so I'm sure my problem must be elsewhere.

If only one vertex is being displayed, it might be a backface culling issue.
To find out if this is the problem, try this to turn culling off
d3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_CULLMODE, D3DCULL_NONE);

if it solves you problem, it means you need to re-order your vertices, I believe they should go in clockwise order, off course once this is fixed you can turn back face culling back on, although for 2d its not really going to do anything

Hmm, i get a bit more displayed..but it definitely still isn't correct. Everything is still displayed in the top left corner no matter the position I give the function and the quad is definitely still not 64x64.

Thanks for the reply,

I'm not sure what you're trying to do here:

TLVERTEX* vertices = texture->getVerticies();
vertexBuffer->Lock(0, 0, (void**)&vertices, NULL);

The Lock() func is going to point 'vertices' to the vertex buffer, so there is no point in assinging a value to it.

Also, you should check the return code of the lock to make sure it is actually succeeding.

Since TLVERTEX does not appear to be a D3D defined structure, yet you are using the defined D3DFVF_TLVERTEX, you should probably show us the structure definition of TLVERTEX to make sure it really agrees with the FVF.

agreed. Here is the relevant code.


float x;
float y;
float z;
float rhw;
D3DCOLOR colour;
float u;
float v;

Well, I see a potential problem here. The d3dtypes.h header contains the following define:


Which clearly does not match the layout of your structure. So I'm guessing the compiler is using the macro rather than your const variable for the FVF. Simply try renaming your FVF const so that it does not collide with the macro name.
