	// Finally, construct a shadow volume object...

    m_pShadowVolume = new ShadowVolume();

in the code, i got complier error (please look at the code) i want to do shadow volume. i got this code from internet and i try to apply for my program. if someone think it won't work please tell me. thanks

m_pBigSquareVB->Lock( 0, 0, BYTE**(&v), 0 )
should be:
m_pBigSquareVB->Lock( 0, 0, (BYTE**)(&v), 0 )

I'd highly recommend taking a step back and learning C++ before jumping into Direct3D - you're just going to end up confusing yourself, and getting something working without knowing why, or even knowing if it works properly - just because the code compiles and runs on your machine, doesn't mean that it won't just crash at startup on someone elses machine.
