I am being studious and everything so I thought that I'd do this the old-fashioned way before the Google mentality of "if you can't find it within the first three minutes, it doesn't exist" and joined a forum. Hello everyone! I hope I can get acquainted with you guys and get some help along the way and vise versa. Before I give you my problem, I'd like to ask if DirectX9 is the best thing to use. My book is outdated and I don't particularly want to muck through trying out DX10+ until I get better at DirectX in general and I know the transition is smooth and/or worth it.
I'll organize this post so this thread isn't cluttered and unattractive. I know some topics get dropped just because people don't format their code in a way that's easy to look through. Also, I am using a Windows 7 machine.
How experienced am I?:
What is the problem?:
What steps have I taken so far to try and solve it?:
What is my code?:
Hopefully I was descriptive as possible!
