Can you please help me or provide me some sample code on how to properly get the 3 vertices (triangle) of face of a mesh from x, coz I’m trying to implement a vertex in triangle collision detection. Advance thanks!

You need to lock the vertex buffer which returns you a pointer to the vertex data. You may also need to lock the index buffer to find out which vertices each triangle uses. When locking the vertex buffer you also have to be careful about the FVF - you may not know what it is. If this is the case I suggest doing a clone mesh first to get the mesh in a format you know about.
