Is it possible to use alpha and color blending at the same time? If I set both alpha and color op enabled and set their ARGs does D3D use both of them or just one of them?

Hi pexi,

yes it''s possible.
I can''t remember on top of my head how to do it in D3D, i did some tests a few weeks back on that very same topic.. worked well.

I know for sure in OpenGL you just call:


you set GLColor4f to whatever tint your blends will take.
pretty easy stuff.

I''ll try and locate the D3D code for it, i know it''s somwhere.

Now if only named my directories with meaningfull names instead of x...temp..test.test1 ..etc i would find stuff much faster

what DX version are you using, DX7 or DX8 ?

I''m using DX8. This topic is very interesting but same time it''s really hard to understand. (Is there group of people in MS which makes help files harder to understand). Maybe I should make some example progs and see what happens....
