Smaller quad makes the dynamic texture disappear ...

Hey People,

I am creating a simple window that renders two pre-transformed triangles that form a quad. These triangles are textured with a dynamic texture that I manually fill.

Everything works fine when rendering with a fixed pipeline, however the weirdness starts when using a shader. If my quad is around 256x256 everything is fine, but if I change this to 128x128 the texture does not get updated and just renders a greyish quad instead.

Any ideas about what could be happening?

My code to initialize DirectX is:

d3d = Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION);
d3d->GetAdapterDisplayMode(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, &displayMode);

ZeroMemory(&d3dpp, sizeof(d3dpp));
d3dpp.BackBufferCount = 1;
d3dpp.MultiSampleType = D3DMULTISAMPLE_NONE;
d3dpp.MultiSampleQuality = 0;
d3dpp.EnableAutoDepthStencil = TRUE;
d3dpp.AutoDepthStencilFormat = D3DFMT_D24S8;
d3dpp.Flags = 0;
d3dpp.Windowed = TRUE;
d3dpp.hDeviceWindow = hWnd;
d3dpp.BackBufferFormat = D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8;
d3dpp.BackBufferWidth = screenWidth;
d3dpp.BackBufferHeight = screenHeight;


I create the dynamic texture like this:

D3DXCreateTexture(device_, simulationSize_, simulationSize_, 0, D3DUSAGE_DYNAMIC, D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &texture_);

D3DLOCKED_RECT lockedRect;
HRESULT hResult = texture_->LockRect(0, &lockedRect, NULL, D3DLOCK_DISCARD);
BYTE* pData = (BYTE*)lockedRect.pBits;
for(int y=0; y<simulationSize_; ++y) {
for(int x=0; x<simulationSize_; ++x) {
pData[y*lockedRect.Pitch + x*4] = 255;
pData[y*lockedRect.Pitch + x*4 + 1] = 0;
pData[y*lockedRect.Pitch + x*4 + 2] = 0;
pData[y*lockedRect.Pitch + x*4 + 3] = 255;

I make the quad like this:

float size = 128; /// If this is 256 it works fine
Vertex vertices[] = {
{0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f},
{size, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f},
{0.0f, size, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f},

{0.0f, size, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f},
{size, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f},
{size, size, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f}

device_->CreateVertexBuffer(6*sizeof(Vertex), 0, vertexFormat, D3DPOOL_MANAGED, &vertexBuffer_, NULL);
device_->SetStreamSource(0, vertexBuffer_, 0, sizeof(Vertex));

VOID* pVoid;
vertexBuffer_->Lock(0, 0, (void**)&pVoid, 0);
memcpy(pVoid, vertices, sizeof(vertices));

Finally, the shader:

float4 DrawTexture(INPUT input) : COLOR {
return tex2D(colorMap, input.coords);

Thanks a lot for any help ...

EDIT: Simplified the code

You're filling only the first mip level of the texture.

Wow Nik02, that was it ... thanks a lot, you have no idea how long I spent trying to see where my error was.

I just changed

D3DXCreateTexture(device_, simulationSize_, simulationSize_, 0, D3DUSAGE_DYNAMIC, D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &texture_);


D3DXCreateTexture(device_, simulationSize_, simulationSize_, 1, D3DUSAGE_DYNAMIC, D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &texture_);

and it worked, really thanks a lot.
