PIX doesn't work with MechCommander RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to run MechCommander in PIX, but it doesn't work - no Run file is saved.

    I recompiled MechCommander for DirectX9, using the Include and Lib directories from the DX9 SDK, June edition. I deleted all the *8* files to make sure there is no reference to DirectX8.

    However, when running MC2Rel.exe from PIX, no stats are displayed and no output file is saved.

    Anybody knows why this happens?

  • This is because GameOS is running DirectX 7.0. When you switched out the DX version only part of the game will be recompiled using the new version of DX. Most of the render and memory management stuff exsists inside GameOS which we did not ship the source code for (it is a lib).
