I had a problem reading data with compute shader from const buffer - shader read garbage. What seemed confusing - graphic diagnostics from VS 2013 showed correct data in the buffer. After hours of pain I checked shader disassemble and found out that const buffer I register to slot 1 IS SOMEHOW MOVED TO SLOT 0! The const buffer from slot 0 got cut out, just because I don't use it in that particular function. When I switched const buffer registers - it started to work as I expected.


I suppose compiler should not change const buffer slots?



Shader cbuffers:

cbuffer Region : register( c0 )
	RegionData _region;

cbuffer Phase : register( c1 )  <- SLOT 1 !!!
	PhaseData _phase;

Disassemble of bindings:

Generated by Microsoft (R) HLSL Shader Compiler 6.3.9600.16384
