i downloaded the jedi DX8 headers and some samples
(from http://www.crazyentertainment.net/samples.php?section=directx )
, but couldn't get them to run.
TerrainRottger gives me a
Incompatible Types: TDIDataFormat and PDIDataFormat
2D SpritesU demo starts, then closes without doing anything.
SampleX11 - Octree starts, then closes without doing anything.
SampleX12 - vertex shading states
"Error initializing 3D Hardware.
You need a directX 8 compatible 3D card to run this sample.
If you have your desktop on 24 or 32 bpp, please try to change it
to 16 bpp"
Well, i can partially understand this one, as my trusty old
ATI Rage 128 doesn't have hardware vertex shaders - but isn't
DirectX supposed to emulate that in Software?
Did someone get those samples to run?
