    DirectX: Precreated Objects


    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a tutorial on how to load 3D Studio Max objects in to C++ using DirectX8. Or, if anyone is up for suggesting methods, I would really appreciate that too
    I've tried doing a search on these forums but, as of yet, haven't been able to come up with the right combination of words to find what I'm looking for

    Thanks for any insight

    P.S. I would also like to recommend (if not too difficult) that a DirectX section be added to these forums. The Keyword "DirectX" alone yields 1006 threads currently. I believe this would be a worthy addition, and helpful to many people out there who are looking for help on this specific topic.

    First of all, try to look up the file format

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    The DirectX SDK should come with some sample source on loading X Files. It also contains a utility to convert 3ds files to .X files. Should be pretty smooth sailing.
