    CDX - Wrapper classes for DirectX (Free)

    I think they're pretty cool and I'm currently using it to write a "shmup" (shoot 'em up).

    They've basically wrapped DirectX and added a few classes to support 2D and 3D games programming, although I haven't checked out the 3D classes yet.

    I find it quite useful and easy to use and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to get bogged down by the DirectX COM interfaces.

    My site:
    http://www.bludstaynesoftware.tk

    It's got a few basic C++ tutorials and one on tile engines. It's a work in progress, so don't expect too much out of it.

    I spoke as a child,
    I thought as a child,
    I reasoned as a child.
    When I became a man,
    I put childish ways behind me"

    Well thanks, but i just redid the whole site to look better. I will take your advice and add the language support. I am going to probably add the content to the site today. I now use snartor's ezportal instead of mine, but it is nicer. lol

    An obvious one:
    http://www.gpwiki.org
    It's a Game Programming Wiki. (You guessed that because it has wiki in the address, right?)
