    has a pretty good direct x tutorial. He even has a quake-like demo that you download that is pretty neat. You can change the velocity on it and what not.

    ok thx looks like good tutorial.. i'll add to favorites

    but sorry for not being specific enough; i dont want to get <i>too</i> advanced right now, i'm [planning] to make a simple 2D platform, add some features, add storymode etc. and come up with a game.

    i'm talking about simple stuff like that
    Code:
    #if _emo
      #define stereo_type_i_dislike
    #endif

    For my platform scroller I'm working on I haven't needed to use too much directx code since I pretty much wrap everything in a surface class. If you want to, just ask us any question and were try to answer it. If it's relevant to game theory then you should ask in the game forum.

    For 2D graphics in DirectX you can use either DirectDraw (obsolete) or Direct3D with textured quads. There are a bunch of articles at gamedev.net: http://www.gamedev.net/reference/lis...egoryid=24#129

    That's a contentious question. For a 2D game, I suspect DirectX would be better. However, for 3D things, OpenGL is very good. I use OpenGL when doing 3D graphics. Also, some games, like Quake, use OpenGL, so you know you wont have to learn anything else to do 3D graphics.
