Im new here and I have a few questions about beginnning game programming.
Im using microsoft VC++ 5.0, but I haven't had much experience programming in a windows environment. What are some good, cheap books I could get that explain how to use DirectX. Please bear in mind I'm just a HS student, so I can't exactly afford half a dozen $80 books.
Secondly, do you people know where I could get some nice programs for doing graphics and sounds. As much as I love using paint brush it's somewhat of a useless program.
