PostPosted: Game Technologies: DirectX 101, Screen flicker when setting DisplayModes Top

Hi,

I am new to DX and noticed that for some reason if I set my display mode format to X8R8G8B8 my screen flickers when I try to have DX show the full screen mode.

If I use D3DFMT_R5G6B5, it works just fine.

D3DFMT_A1R5G5B5 also flickers. I am sorry if this question is off topic. I was just curious if there were common causes for screen flicker like I'm seeing Or is it all down to my hardware

(I am using the sample code's D3DEnumeration to pick my display mode -- like screen height, width, format and refresh rate, not just kludging one together randomly for what it's worth)

Thanks for any help, or just for taking the time to read my post!,

Jim
