Hi, I'm just getting into DirectX, I think it is the tool I need to create my gaming ideas. I have downloaded the 9.0 SDK and looked through the samples and tutorials. Even the simplest tutorial was rather baffling. I was wondering if I could get some tips for getting started on understanding DirectX, how do I go about making sense of all this? I know C++ but the code in the samples all seems rather foreign to me.
Links to some good beginner sites would be helpful. Or if it comes to it I might just cave in and actually buy a book :unsure: .
I was reading some reviews and Introduction to 3D Game Programming with DirectX 9.0 looks like it could be helpful, or I also saw someone mention Programming Role Playing Games with DirectX in a different post. Any suggestions?
