    Exclamation Can't find DirectX!!!

    I can't find directx! The one that I did find at Microsoft though, will take me 15hrs to download. And the server would disconnect me before it gets through. Where can I find a directx (at least v8.0) sdk that has ALL of .LIB and .H files? I have been looking for a while now. Please help!

    You could buy a book that comes with it. Other than that, there's only downloading, and yes, the SDK is HUGE. If you'd get disconnected, you need a download manager. Of course that's disregarding online charges.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?
