DX8 - DX9

Recommended Posts

I am reading a book on some rendering techniques, and the samples are in DX8, now I'm currently using DX9, and so my question is can I easyly convert the code from DX8 to DX9 (e.g. dx8light becomes dx9light, (name made up)). It's been ages since I've last coded in DX so any hints on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

It's pretty easy to move back and forth (I recently shifted our entire codebase back to DX8, which was fun :) There's some differences (mainly around D3DX, and the way states are handled), but shouldn't take long for a competent programmer to work out. The diff's are less between DX8 and DX9 than between any of the previous versions.

Have fun,

Allan

Thanks a lot for the reply. I will stick with DX9 then and work out any glitches to the best of my abilities.
