    Question Has anybody gotten Dev-C++ to compile DirectX programs?

    Have you? I would love to know how. I have had the patch bloodshed released for Directx 8, but most of the standard functions don't work, therefore makeing most of the code from the SDK useless. I do everything it says in the readme, but that doesn't work. Thx in advance.

    Hm, I never had any trouble with DX 7, but haven't tried 8 yet. Allegro is a DX wrapper and works flawlessly with Dev-C++. It is pretty simple to use and cross platform.. it isn't a whole lot like DX even though it wraps it though. If you're interested, I have an installer on my site (see sig) or look at http://alleg.sourceforge.net/

    P.S. I know some people have had trouble with several versions of DX.. might try the Dev-C++ forums here: http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=48211
