I have tried to add alpha-transparency to my textures (I use 32-bit tga, like Quake3 does) and in another project the code worked well. But in the other project I''m currently working on the textures suddently were "solid", no sign of transparency. At first I thought I had forgotten to do this line:
m_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE,   TRUE ); 
But I looked it up, it was were I had intended it. Then I started to check if my device was HAL and so on, but everything was fine. At last I found out, that my
m_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE,   TRUE ); 
was inside the
m_pd3dDevice->BeginScene(); 
Then I put it right after the device creation code it works fine. But I wonder if I made some mistake or if it was just bad luck. Has anyone experienced similar problems? BTW: It works fine now, after 3 hours oder frustation and cursing.
