Textures problem with debug version

Recommended Posts

The debug mode write me : Direct3D8: (WARN) :Texture cache thrashing. Removing MRU texture. ... Direct3D8: (ERROR) :all Freed no further video memory available Direct3D8: (ERROR) :The resource manager failed to promote or update a dirty texture. The texture will be disabled. Why in my prog, the textures aren''t shown? Whereas with the Retail version of directX, it''s work with Textures. Thanks.

1. as mentioned, you have too much texture. What sizes are your textures ? try reducing their size, and/or using compressed (DXTn/S3TC) textures.

2. have you been changing any of the texture eviction priorities ? if you''ve ''demanded'' that all textures are of high priority it could screw things up.

3. Have you tried D3DCREATE_DISABLE_DRIVER_MANAGEMENT for CreateDevice ?

4. Are your textures square and power-of-2 in dimension ? - if they aren''t you might be making life difficult for the texture manager.

5. Try using mipmaps - it''s extremely likely that textures which are so big they kill the texture manager are *always* being minified - a smaller level in the chain may be able to be uploaded instead of the full-size one.
