Recommended Posts

has any1 been able to convert this matrix transofrmation tutorial (http://www.andypike.com/tutorials/DirectX8/005.asp) from DX8 to DX9? I realize its probably not that hard but EnumAdapterModes and GetAdapterModeCount don't make sense to me. I know they have changed from DX8 to DX9 but I've never used DX8 so I don't understand exactly how to use the new funcs. Much thanks.

The only difference is that they now get a format, which limits the results returned. So if in DX8 the app went over all the modes and sorted out 16 bit from 32 bit ones, in DX9 the app will get all 32 bit modes, and if it wants, all 16 bit modes. You can check out CD3DEnumeration::Enumerate in DXUTenum.cpp in the DX9 SDK to see how it goes over all the modes.
