I have Game Programming for Dummies,Tricks,Zen of D3D8,Game Programming with DX7.....heh you figure I would know something by now..anyway, I have played around with ddraw and feel comfortable with it and I am ready to make that all important tetris clone but,the question is should I stay with dx7 or go with dx8, like I said I have Zen of D3D if that is what I should do and who doesnt want to eventually make 3d games? So basically I guess I am just confused as hell on what I should do. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

I had the same dilema. I decided to start with DX7 as the 2D stuff is much easier to learn than with DX8. Then I plan to learn DX8 and see how to do the 2D part there. If you want to jump directly into DX8, there are good tutorials over at Flip Code on how to do 2D graphics in DX8.
