  1. ok realise now that im not linking to the right library all sorted now :)
  2. thanks for that, i forgot all about unicode although ive always done TEXT() i never new about putting a L before it. i now recieve a "LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _D3DXLoadMeshFromXW@32 referenced in function "long __cdecl InitDirect3D(struct HWND__ *,int,int,bool)" (?InitDirect3D@@YAJPAUHWND__@@HH_N@Z)" error?
  3. from all the example code ive been reading through thay have the .x file name declared like so: HRESULT hr = D3DXLoadMeshFromX("sphere.x", D3DXMESH_SYSTEMMEM, pD3DDevice9, NULL, &materialBuffer, NULL, &numMaterials, &mesh); but i keep getting a "cannot convert parameter 1 from 'const char [9]' to 'LPCWSTR'" error on my compiler. am i missing something simple here? visual studio 2005.net & DirectX9 cheers Jay
  4. excellent thankyou i cant belived i overlooked thoes lol. so that problem is fixed but i have a new error. now when it runs it comes up with unhandled exception at 0x00411608 in dx_render.exe and is identifying this line: pD3DDevice9->Clear(0, NULL, D3DCLEAR_TARGET, D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0, 0, 255), 1.0f, 0);
  5. Just tried ShowWindow and it makes no difference the window is stil created and displayed and then suddenly destroyed?
  6. heres all the code from the app #include <windows.h> #include <d3D9.h> #include <d3dx9.h> IDirect3D9* pD3D9 = NULL; IDirect3DDevice9* pD3DDevice9 = NULL; HRESULT InitDirect3D(HWND hWnd, int width, int height, bool fullscreen) { pD3D9 = Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION); if(pD3D9 == NULL) return E_FAIL; // display mode D3DDISPLAYMODE d3ddm; pD3D9->GetAdapterDisplayMode(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, &d3ddm); // presentation settings D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS d3dpp; ZeroMemory(&d3dpp, sizeof(d3dpp)); d3dpp.BackBufferWidth = width; d3dpp.BackBufferHeight = height; d3dpp.BackBufferCount = 1; d3dpp.BackBufferFormat = d3ddm.Format; d3dpp.SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD; d3dpp.Windowed = !fullscreen; d3dpp.EnableAutoDepthStencil = true; d3dpp.AutoDepthStencilFormat = D3DFMT_D16; d3dpp.FullScreen_RefreshRateInHz = D3DPRESENT_RATE_DEFAULT; d3dpp.PresentationInterval = D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_IMMEDIATE; if(FAILED(pD3D9->CreateDevice(D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, D3DDEVTYPE_HAL, hWnd, D3DCREATE_HARDWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING, &d3dpp, &pD3DDevice9))) { return E_FAIL; } return S_OK; } void Render(void) { pD3DDevice9->Clear(0, NULL, D3DCLEAR_TARGET, D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0, 0, 255), 1.0f, 0); pD3DDevice9->BeginScene(); // Draw code pD3DDevice9->EndScene(); pD3DDevice9->Present(NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL); } void DestroyD3D(void) { if(pD3DDevice9) { pD3DDevice9->Release(); pD3DDevice9 = NULL; } if(pD3D9) { pD3D9->Release(); pD3D9 = NULL; } } LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hWnd, UINT Msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) { switch(Msg) { case WM_CLOSE: DestroyD3D(); UnregisterClass(g_szClassName, hInstance); DestroyWindow(hWnd); break; case WM_DESTROY: PostQuitMessage(0); break; default: return DefWindowProc(hWnd, Msg, wParam, lParam); } return 0; } int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR CmdLine, int CmdShow) { WNDCLASSEX windowClass; MSG Msg; HWND hWnd = NULL; static TCHAR g_szClassName[] = TEXT("DXWindowClass"); // class struct windowClass.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX); windowClass.style = CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW; windowClass.lpfnWndProc = WndProc; windowClass.cbClsExtra = 0; windowClass.cbWndExtra = 0; windowClass.hInstance = hInstance; windowClass.hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION); windowClass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW); windowClass.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(BLACK_BRUSH); windowClass.lpszMenuName = NULL; windowClass.lpszClassName = g_szClassName; windowClass.hIconSm = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_WINLOGO); if(!RegisterClassEx(&windowClass)) return 0; hWnd = CreateWindowEx(NULL, g_szClassName, TEXT("dx_render"), WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW | WS_VISIBLE, 0, 0, 800, 600, NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL); if(!hWnd) return 0; if(FAILED(InitDirect3D(hWnd, 800, 600, false))) { DestroyD3D(); return 0; } while(1) { PeekMessage(&Msg, hWnd, NULL, NULL, PM_REMOVE); if(Msg.message = WM_QUIT) break; else { Render(); TranslateMessage(&Msg); DispatchMessage(&Msg); } return ((int)Msg.wParam); } return 0; }
  7. Just been following the d3d9 tutorial from here: http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article1943.asp and compiled it, it all runs and the window is created but after about a second the window is destroyed and the only output in the debug window is: Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [0] : Address 00A3D4CB Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [1] : Address 00A3D59B Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [2] : Address 00A3D440 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [3] : Address 00A31D44 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [4] : Address 4FDFAF2E Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [5] : Address 00411455 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [6] : Address 00411969 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [7] : Address 00412136 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [8] : Address 00411E9D Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [9] : Address 7C816FD7 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [10] : Address 00000000 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [11] : Address 00000000 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [12] : Address 00000000 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [13] : Address 00000000 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [14] : Address 00000000 Direct3D9: (ERROR) : [15] : Address 00000000 any ideas on what this could be?
