Remarks

D3DPOOL_SCRATCH will return a surface that has identical characteristics to a surface created by the DirectX 8.x method CreateImageSurface.

D3DPOOL_DEFAULT is the appropriate pool for use with the IDirect3DDevice9::StretchRect and IDirect3DDevice9::ColorFill.

D3DPOOL_MANAGED is not allowed when creating an offscreen plain surface. For more information about memory pools, see D3DPOOL.

Off-screen plain surfaces are always lockable, regardless of their pool types.
