I was trying to set texture to a Box, I got the texture to apply but i end up lines of color.

void init_light(pD3DdeviceX d3ddev)
D3DLIGHT9 light; // create the light struct
D3DMATERIAL9 material; // create the material struct

ZeroMemory(&light, sizeof(light)); // clear out the light struct for use
light.Type = D3DLIGHT_DIRECTIONAL; // make the light type 'directional light'
light.Diffuse = D3DXCOLOR(0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // set the light's color
light.Direction = D3DXVECTOR3(-1.0f, -0.3f, -1.0f);

d3ddev->SetLight(0, &light); // send the light struct properties to light #0
d3ddev->LightEnable(0, TRUE); // turn on light #0

ZeroMemory(&material, sizeof(D3DMATERIAL9)); // clear out the struct for use
material.Diffuse = D3DXCOLOR(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f); // set diffuse color to white
material.Ambient = D3DXCOLOR(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f); // set ambient color to white

d3ddev->SetMaterial(&material); // set the globably-used material to &material


static BOOL Create = TRUE;

BYTE Menu[] = { Image Bytes };

void init_graphics(pD3DdeviceX pDevice)


// create three vertices using the CUSTOMVERTEX struct built earlier
CUSTOMVERTEX vertices[] =
{ -3.0f, -3.0f, 3.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, }, // side 1
{ 3.0f, -3.0f, 3.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, },

// draw the cube
d3ddev->DrawIndexedPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLELIST, 0, 0, 24, 0, 12);


i kno i code a little messy.
this is how it ended up

K I didnt think if i put UV cord in google i will not get UV protection and stuff ( there should be a DirectX SDK for kids I should not have to learn this and still stay in skool)

Each vertex in a model has a position in 3D space, X, Y and Z as you have it now. Also they can optionally have a normal X, Y, and Z as you have it now.

To apply a texture to a polygon, you will also need UV coordinates per vertex that specify how you want the texture to appear.

So you need to change your vertex structure to include 2 additional floats U and V.

UV coordinates generally range between 0.0f and 1.0f (generally speaking for now).

Where 0.0f is the left most pixel for U and 1.0f is the right most pixel for U.

So to map the entire texture to a quad, top left vertex UV 0.0f, 0.0f and the top right vertex UV 1.0f 0.0f. Bottom right UV 0.0f 1.0f and bottom right 1.0f, 1.0f

Does that help ?

Looks like you have removed the normal though which will mean it won't get lit correctly.

Don't you want...
