    Moving On

    I've been doing DOS C++ for about a year now, but now I want to learn DirectX 9 programming. I have experience in DarkBASIC as well as DOS C++. Can anybody suggest any good books for me?

    Does anyone have any ideas? For 38 views, 0 replies is kind of sad.

    Maybe it's because a paultry 38 people don't know any Direct-X books? Give it time. People are at work between your two posts.

    Look on Amazon - some of the best books might be there.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    I looked, but the reviews were either bad for most, or said "not for beginners" for the only good one. Are there any online tutorials?

    Maybe because they're tired of saying STFBoard.
    Anyhow, most beginners would grab 'Teach Yourself Game Programming with DirectX in 21 Days'

    It's down. In the meantime check this collection of links under Game Programming board Game Programming Links

    Well I always like to goto the source.

    Not saying that Microsoft has the best documentation but i have learned a lot reading through it.

    Compilers=gcc 3.2.3, Visual C++ 6.0, DevC++(Mingw)

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.

    Thanks, guys! I'm going to try to start on the online tutorial, but if that doesn't work, I'll grab a book.
