Hello, I loaded the tiger.x mesh into my app. This mesh is indexed and I would like to make a copy of it in a vertex buffer in such a way that I don't need the index buffer any more. What I do is that I iterate through the index buffer so as to get the indices of the vertices, then i get the vertex associated with this index in the vertex buffer and I copy it in my new vertex buffer. In the end, i get a weird shape. Is this correct or did I miss something. Here's the code.

struct CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX{
	FLOAT x, y, z;
	D3DVECTOR n1;//, n2, n3;
};

struct CUTOM_VERTEX{
	FLOAT x, y, z;
	D3DVECTOR n1;
};


hr = LoadMeshFromFile("tiger.x",&mesh,&textures,&materials,&numMaterials);
	hr = mesh->CloneMeshFVF(mesh->GetOptions(),/*mesh->GetFVF()*/D3DFVF_XYZ /*|D3DFVF_TEX1*/|D3DFVF_NORMAL ,device,&texturedMesh);
	D3DXComputeNormals(texturedMesh,(DWORD *)adj->GetBufferPointer());

D3DVERTEXELEMENT9 decl[]= {
		{0, 0, D3DDECLTYPE_FLOAT3, D3DDECLMETHOD_DEFAULT, D3DDECLUSAGE_POSITION, 0},
		{0, 12, D3DDECLTYPE_FLOAT3, D3DDECLMETHOD_DEFAULT, D3DDECLUSAGE_NORMAL, 0},
		//{0, 6*sizeof(float), D3DDECLTYPE_FLOAT3, D3DDECLMETHOD_DEFAULT, D3DDECLUSAGE_NORMAL, 1},
		//{0, 9*sizeof(float), D3DDECLTYPE_FLOAT3, D3DDECLMETHOD_DEFAULT, D3DDECLUSAGE_NORMAL, 2},
		D3DDECL_END()
	};


	hr = device->CreateVertexDeclaration(decl, &vDecl);
	if(FAILED(hr)){
		MessageBox(hWnd,TEXT("Unable to create declaration"),TEXT("Initialization error"),MB_OK);
		return;
	}

	int sizeV = texturedMesh->GetNumFaces()*3;

hr = device->CreateVertexBuffer( sizeV*sizeof(CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX),
		0,0, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &vb, 0);
	if(FAILED(hr)){
		MessageBox(hWnd,TEXT("Unable to create vb"),TEXT("Initialization error"),MB_OK);
		return;
	}


	IDirect3DVertexBuffer9 *vb2 = 0;
	IDirect3DIndexBuffer9  *ib2 = 0;
	texturedMesh->GetVertexBuffer(&vb2);
	texturedMesh->GetIndexBuffer(&ib2);

	D3DINDEXBUFFER_DESC desc;
	ib2->GetDesc(&desc);

	CUTOM_VERTEX *vb2L = 0;
	USHORT *ib2L = 0;
	hr = vb2->Lock(0,0,(void **)&vb2L, D3DLOCK_READONLY);
	hr = ib2->Lock(0,0,(void **)&ib2L, D3DLOCK_READONLY);

	int tst = texturedMesh->GetNumFaces()*3;



	CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX *vertices  = new CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX[ sizeV];

	for(UINT i= 0; i< texturedMesh->GetNumFaces()*3; i++){
		USHORT a = ib2L;
		CUTOM_VERTEX cv = vb2L[a];
		CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX scv = {
			cv.x,cv.y,cv.z, 
				cv.n1
			//D3DVECTOR(),
			//D3DVECTOR()
		};
		vertices = scv;

	}
	vb2->Unlock();
	ib2->Unlock();

	CELL_SHADING_CUTOM_VERTEX *verti;
	hr = vb->Lock(0,0,(void **)&verti, 0);
	if(FAILED(hr)){
		MessageBox(hWnd,TEXT("Unable to lock vb"),TEXT("Initialization error"),MB_OK);
		return;
	}
	memcpy(verti, vertices, sizeV);

	vb->Unlock();




Thanks
