    DirectPlay & a DirectX question

    I'm looking for directplay tutorials for DirectX 8 and 9 if there are any around (is it still called directplay in DirextX 8 and 9?). I'd like a pretty detailed tutorial that covers everything you would need to know.

    Also, how can you check what version of DirectX is on a computer? Thanks for all help !
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    to check the version

    go to run and type in dxdiag and hit enter. Bottom of the dialog that pops up tells u that.

    Or, if you want to determine the dx version programmatically as described here check out the samples in your dx installation for the GetDXVer sample. For dx9 this is in the Samples-->C++-->Misc directory.
