      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

How to load a RGB format texture from memory using dx ?

2 posts in this topic

Here is my trying 

	in = cvLoadImage("24bpp_1920x1200_1.bmp", 1);

	HRESULT err;
	IDirect3DTexture9 * texture = NULL;
	///D3DFMT_L8, D3DFMT_R8G8B8
	err = D3DXCreateTexture(g_pd3dDevice, in->width, in->height, 1, 0 , D3DFMT_R8G8B8, D3DPOOL_MANAGED, &g_pTexture);
	D3DLOCKED_RECT lockRect;
	RECT rect;
	
	err = g_pTexture->LockRect(0, &lockRect, NULL, 0);//I have specified the format is RGB, then why does lockRect.Picth = 7680?

	memcpy(lockRect.pBits, in->imageData, in->widthStep*in->height);
	if(FAILED(g_pTexture->UnlockRect(0))) 
	{
		///
	}

It can't display an image in RGB format. But it can display an image in grayscale or in RGBA format. 

 

Otherwise, I want to display high resolution image like the sample of displaying image using d3d in Dx Sdk_june10".\DXSDK\Samples\InstalledSamples\Textures" does.

But, again, it can't display an image in size more than 1920x1200px approximately. 

 

How to do ?

Does the code fail somewhere, or does it display the RGB image wrong?

If LockRect fails, then check that the texture you're using is not larger than the MaxTextureWidth and MaxTextureHeight values of the D3DCAPS9 structure returned by IDirect3D9::GetDeviceCaps. In this case, if you still want to display the source image in full resolution, you'll have to split it into multiple smaller textures, and display each of those textures separately. If you just want to use the source image as a texture for geometry, then you should really just scale down your source image - most of the time when your 3D object is in view, it will be small enough that the texture will be scaled down during rendering anyway.

 

If it doesn't fail, but displays the image wrong (skewed), then you probably have to honor the pitch value returned by LockRect. This means that you have to copy the rows from the in-memory texture data row-by row, and align each row at lockRect.Pitch bytes - i.e., after copying one row (of in->widthStep bytes) into lockRect.pBits, increase the lockRect.pBits pointer by (lockRect.Pitch - in->widthStep) - assuming that widthStep is the width, in bytes, of one row of your source image data.

 

Also, if your code fails during D3DXCreateTexture, check that your graphics card supports the D3DFMT_R8G8B8 texture format, with IDirect3D9::CheckDeviceFormat.

 

You can also use the DeviceCaps Viewer (a tool in the DirectX SDK) to check the maximum texture size and texture formats supported by your graphics card.

 DeviceCaps Viewer is very helpful to underestanding 

Thank you, I know how to do
