Here is the prototype: HRESULT IDirect3D8::CreateDevice( UINT Adapter, D3DDEVTYPE DeviceType, Team-Fly® Creating IDirect3DDevice8 Objects HWND 25 hFocusWindow, DWORD BehaviorFlags, D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS* pPresentationParameters, IDirect3DDevice8** ppReturnedDeviceInterface ); This function returns an HRESULT. It is D3D_OK on success, or D3DERR_ INVALIDCALL, D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE, or D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY on failure. The first three parameters, Adapter, DeviceType, and hFocusWindow, will be familiar to you.

AM FL Y You can have up to eight textures applied to a single vertex. Of course, not all video cards support this, so you should primarily stick to one and occasionally use two. To further confuse this issue, textures can have one, two, three, or four dimensions to them. In this book, you will typically go with only one, but I’ll bring in a second one from time to time. TE So, each texture gives you an extra set of coordinates (with between one and four dimensions). These are, of course, floats.

Render targets are types of resources on which you use Direct3D to draw graphics. Naturally, not all of your resources will need one or both of these flags, and so you can leave the Usage parameter zero. The RType parameter is one of the constants in the D3DRESOURCETYPE enumeration. 5. 5 D3DRESOURCETYPE Constants Constant Meaning D3DRTYPE_SURFACE A generic surface D3DRTYPE_VOLUME A volume D3DRTYPE_TEXTURE A texture D3DRTYPE_VOLUMETEXTURE A volume texture D3DRTYPE_CUBETEXTURE A cube texture D3DRTYPE_VERTEXBUFFER A vertex buffer D3DRTYPE_INDEXBUFFER An index buffer Checking for Compatible Formats 21 As far as you are concerned, only a few of these, D3DRTYPE_SURFACE, and D3DRTYPE_VERTEXBUFFER are of use.
