  1. wow.. nice work.. i'll work through your tutorials.. [img][/img] epic..!!
  2. can't initialize directx 11

    thanks alot MJP.. it works..!!(reminder : im a noob ) yes , my gfx card only support up to dx10.1 , but is it possible to continue dx11 tutorials using this hardware? is this the only change in code ? (i know, it can't be) . i was bit fluent in dx9 while ago and now i'm complete noob to dx11, so i really don't want go back to dx10 at this point(i'll feel like a martian when dx12 is out there if i do that).it seems to be Microsoft going deep into hardware level. is there any good learning material where i can convert dx11 codes to dx10 on the go, while following dx11 tutorials ?
  3. can't initialize directx 11

    hello, i'm a noob to directx11 game programming , i have followed directx9 2D and basics in 3D without much issue using books and web tutorials. i thought of transfer to directx11 and started following directx11 tutorials . but i got stuck on directx11 3rd tutorial . my problem is i can't initialize directx 11 properly it gives me error ''Could not initialize Direct3D.'' i'm using win7, visual c++ and have latest directx sdk june 2010 . i have given paths to include folder and library folder in properties . there are very long pages of coding in d3dclass.cpp which is very hard to follow up and find the error(with very limited knowledge in directx11). i have downloaded c++ project files,exe and source from the site( but still no luck . btw can this error cause by out dated video card ? i have entry level video card , 310m geforce 512MB . but i can run sample directx11 files and codes shipped with directx without any issue. i'm frustrated from this issue [img][/img] , hope someone can help me.. thanks in advance this is the initialize function as i think which fails , [CODE] bool D3DClass::Initialize(int screenWidth, int screenHeight, bool vsync, HWND hwnd, bool fullscreen, float screenDepth, float screenNear) { HRESULT result; IDXGIFactory* factory; IDXGIAdapter* adapter; IDXGIOutput* adapterOutput; unsigned int numModes, i, numerator, denominator, stringLength; DXGI_MODE_DESC* displayModeList; DXGI_ADAPTER_DESC adapterDesc; int error; DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC swapChainDesc; D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL featureLevel; ID3D11Texture2D* backBufferPtr; D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC depthBufferDesc; D3D11_DEPTH_STENCIL_DESC depthStencilDesc; D3D11_DEPTH_STENCIL_VIEW_DESC depthStencilViewDesc; D3D11_RASTERIZER_DESC rasterDesc; D3D11_VIEWPORT viewport; float fieldOfView, screenAspect; // Store the vsync setting. m_vsync_enabled = vsync; // Create a DirectX graphics interface factory. result = CreateDXGIFactory(__uuidof(IDXGIFactory), (void**)&factory); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Use the factory to create an adapter for the primary graphics interface (video card). result = factory->EnumAdapters(0, &adapter); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Enumerate the primary adapter output (monitor). result = adapter->EnumOutputs(0, &adapterOutput); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Get the number of modes that fit the DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM display format for the adapter output (monitor). result = adapterOutput->GetDisplayModeList(DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM, DXGI_ENUM_MODES_INTERLACED, &numModes, NULL); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Create a list to hold all the possible display modes for this monitor/video card combination. displayModeList = new DXGI_MODE_DESC[numModes]; if(!displayModeList) { return false; } // Now fill the display mode list structures. result = adapterOutput->GetDisplayModeList(DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM, DXGI_ENUM_MODES_INTERLACED, &numModes, displayModeList); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Now go through all the display modes and find the one that matches the screen width and height. // When a match is found store the numerator and denominator of the refresh rate for that monitor. for(i=0; i<numModes; i++) { if(displayModeList[i].Width == (unsigned int)screenWidth) { if(displayModeList[i].Height == (unsigned int)screenHeight) { numerator = displayModeList[i].RefreshRate.Numerator; denominator = displayModeList[i].RefreshRate.Denominator; } } } // Get the adapter (video card) description. result = adapter->GetDesc(&adapterDesc); if(FAILED(result)) { return false; } // Store the dedicated video card memory in megabytes. m_videoCardMemory = (int)(adapterDesc.DedicatedVideoMemory / 1024 / 1024); // Convert the name of the video card to a character array and store it. error = wcstombs_s(&stringLength, m_videoCardDescription, 128, adapterDesc.Description, 128); if(error != 0) { return false; } // Release the display mode list. delete [] displayModeList; displayModeList = 0; // Release the adapter output. adapterOutput->Release(); adapterOutput = 0; // Release the adapter. adapter->Release(); adapter = 0; // Release the factory. factory->Release(); factory = 0; // Initialize the swap chain description.
