D3DXSprite Problems

Recommended Posts

First of all, I''ve never used this board before (been using until it went down over a week ago and is yet to come back up). So, I''ve been using the D3DXSprite functions for about a week now and have noticed that the texture is always linearly filtered. That''s all nice and all, but when using 1 alpha bit a halo appears around every sprite since the newly interpolated alpha equates to 1/2 alpha. Add that to the color (white) that targas use for pixels with an alpha value of 0, and you get a visible halo. After looking everywhere on the web, including a couple visits to the microsoft newsgroups, I''ve come to the conclusion that a lot of people have been having problems with D3DXSprite and no one has any real answers (other than pointing out the obvious RECT error that everyone should have known about since ''97). This is what I''ve found while looking through d3dxsprite.h: D3DXSprite::Begin() sets the following render/texture states: SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLORARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_MODULATE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_MODULATE); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_MINFILTER, D3DTEXF_LINEAR); SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_MAGFILTER, D3DTEXF_LINEAR); SetRenderState(D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_SRCALPHA); SetRenderState(D3DRS_DESTBLEND, D3DBLEND_INVSRCALPHA); SetRenderState(D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE, TRUE); SetRenderState(D3DRS_ZENABLE, TRUE/FALSE); Depending on the value of ZEnable parameter So, in order to fix my problem (and problems that others have encountered) you simply set the render/texture states that you need after calling D3DXSprite::Begin(). Hope this helps anyone out there whose been having problems. Bill6
