[DX8] library for D3DX functions

Recommended Posts

Which lib do i have to link to use d3dx functions like D3DXLoadTextureFromFileEx or D3DXGetImageInfoFromFile in DIRECTX8 ?
MSDN only gives info for dx9 or 10.

Please don't answer me to upgrade to directx9, i need to use version 8.
Thanks in advance !

then can i ask, why do you need DX8 ?

Seconded.

You can write DX9 code targetting DX8 class hardware; just don't use any features (mostly SM2.0+ stuff) that the hardware doesn't support. There is, IMO, no reason at all for requiring DX8.
