Umm, apologies for the duplicate post (put this on in the newbie section, but without much luck :( Thanks for not noticing ;p ) OK, Firstly, Hi, I'm new here. I'm not a C++ noob, or a DirectX noob, but I'm having a noob problem :) the problem is that if I set the D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS' Windowed flag to FALSE, CreateDevice() fails. I can't see why. I'm not too great at posting on a forum, so here's the code as best as i can manage... D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS dx_PresParams; ZeroMemory( &dx_PresParams, sizeof(dx_PresParams) ); dx_PresParams.Windowed = FALSE; dx_PresParams.FullScreen_RefreshRateInHz= D3DPRESENT_RATE_DEFAULT; dx_PresParams.PresentationInterval = D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_IMMEDIATE; dx_PresParams.BackBufferCount = 1; dx_PresParams.BackBufferFormat = D3DFMT_UNKNOWN; dx_PresParams.BackBufferHeight = Wind.GetHeight(); dx_PresParams.BackBufferWidth = Wind.GetWidth(); dx_PresParams.SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD; if (FAILED(m_pD3D->CreateDevice(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, D3DDEVTYPE_HAL, Wind.GetHWnd(), D3DCREATE_HARDWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING, &dx_PresParams, &m_pDxDev))) { if (FAILED(m_pD3D->CreateDevice(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, D3DDEVTYPE_REF, Wind.GetHWnd(), D3DCREATE_SOFTWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING, &dx_PresParams, &m_pDxDev))) { MessageBox(Wind.GetHWnd(),"Failed to create even the reference device!", "FATAL ERROR!",MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION); }else{ MessageBox(Wind.GetHWnd(),"working with the reference device!", "Problems",MB_OK); } } btw, it's the "Failed to create even the reference device!" message I get [Edited by - LessBread on June 13, 2007 2:39:08 PM]

Yeh, Worked well, thanks.

Here, for those who might have a similar problem, is the fixed code snippet.

D3DDISPLAYMODE d3ddm;
m_pD3D->GetAdapterDisplayMode(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, &d3ddm);

D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS dx_PresParams;

ZeroMemory( &dx_PresParams, sizeof(dx_PresParams) );

dx_PresParams.Windowed = FALSE;
dx_PresParams.FullScreen_RefreshRateInHz = d3ddm.RefreshRate;
dx_PresParams.PresentationInterval = D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_IMMEDIATE;
dx_PresParams.BackBufferCount = 1;
dx_PresParams.BackBufferFormat = d3ddm.Format;
dx_PresParams.BackBufferHeight = Wind.GetHeight();
dx_PresParams.BackBufferWidth = Wind.GetWidth();
dx_PresParams.SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD;
