    How many tutorials do you ask for on how many different things? I know it is tuff starting out, but try looking yourself, have you even checked out any of the sites people have recommended to you? If you had, I do not think you would still be asking this same question.

    Maybe you should check out the faq, there's some links on there.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I'm gonna have to agree with the other guys Ruski...spend more time reading than you do talking...that is how smart people are made. Nobody ever learned much by just talking and not listening.

    Anyway, here's something for you to read. Don't ask this question again unless you read all of those and NeXe and you still can't figure it out.

    Actually, i find www.gamedev.net quite good for learning all the theory and concepts of stuff.

    GameTutorials on the other hand has more code, but it is hard to learn anything from...

    To put this bluntly, Ruski. FIND THE DAMN TUTORIALS YOURSELF! Any person in their right mind can find information at gamedev. Open your eyes a little and you'll be able to find them.

    I agree with TechWins. Or, since you seem to be having trouble understanding what people and websites are telling you in English, I'll try this...

    Tu es stupide! Lire! <-- French
    Du bist ein Narr! Lesen! <-- German
    Away.

    I know french but not german... And the only information I found on GameDev is where to start, where to get a book etc.. Maybe I just didn't dive in deeply....

    That's your opinion, I don't use this website so often, it's was only a tip -> but I think, that it sucks too.

    www.google.com (-> search there for directx)
