    I'm sure it's possible but will lag like a drunk bitch in a dark room.

    I can't believe you guys still care more about what it looks rather than what it does...

    Cool
    MAN U GUYS ARE NOT CREATIVE.. I am a D3D WIZE (at some thing)

    IDEAS FOR SPRITES:
    1. Make many pictures for your animation
    2. Create Many Textures for each image
    3. Now If ur using 2 images use a "bool" else use a "int" r something
    4. NOW THE CODING OF THIS in a Thread.
      Code:
      int T_no;
      DWORD TimerTHREAD( void ){
      while(true){
              if ( T_no == 0){
                      Sleep(/* animation time */ 1000);
                      T_no = 1; // Next Animation
              }else if( T_no == 1){
                      Sleep( /*Animation Time*/ 500);
              }/* AND SO ON*/
      }
      return 0x001;
      }
      
      PRESENT NOW, but that to much writing
      
      HMODULE myPresent( /*ect */){
              if (T_no == 0)
                       Animation_Texture = MP_text; //Draw Animation 1
              else if (T_no == 1)
                      Animation_Texture = pTexture; //Draw Animation 2
      
               Sprite->Draw( bla bla bla , Animation_Texture);
      }
      REMEMBER I WAS THINKING OF HOW IT WILL WORK WHEN I MADE IT.

    It does not change the image, it is the same image there just fliping it and moving it and stuff.

    You should read the article better and unterstand the possibilities.

    Your method is just wasting memory - use the method in the article and you can do all in one picture file and with one texture.

    From what i saw it seems to be only moving the texture,

    but my way is different. it is for if ur using more than 1 pictures how u say, like a '*.gif' file .

    those file are images with timers, that

    at thise time. show this image. few mili sec it will show a different picture.

    I am just re creating the effect in D3D.

    my ways are some what buggy i kno.

    Create a D3DX Texture from file for all frames of your animation and draw your sprite with sequential textures.

    There should be a better way, but it will not lag at all.






    Why is DX[T] censored?
