    First shot at DirectX(ONLY if you have nothing to do)

    Hey, I just finished my first DirectX game, Jap Attack. I was wondering if you good, nice, fine, considerate people would test it and tell me if it works, and if i'm on the right track. I used DirectX SDK 8.1 and was wondering if it would work on DirectX 8.0 runtime files. thanks!

    When it first started the game ran fine, but then after about 1 min of playing it froze for a few seconds and then crashed. I have DirectX 8.1.

    that means it works fine. you just let the planes bomb you and the game just quit. in that pause there should of been a 'game over' voice...but i'm having a big problem with resources that it won't play...

    Umm... you need to either limit the framerate, or have it move by time, because it is playable for under 1s on my pc, before it pauses and closes. This is on a P3 1GHz, 512MB SDRAM, GeForce3 Ti500 /w 64mb DDR RAM

    Very... ummm... entertaining. Except I couldn't figure out from the animations whether the planes were being shot or shooting me
