The DirectX Software Development Kit (SDK) downloaded from Microsoft contains tutorials on VB DirectX programming and sample source.

Couple of links for you:

www.directx4vb.com (very comprehensive)

www.rookscape.com/vbgaming (good beginners message board)

www.vbexplorer.com (another great beginner''s resource)

You don''t need the SDK to develop stuff, but it is highly recommended and people will get annoyed if you ask questions which are already answered in the SDK. Do yourself a favour and get it


Trying is the first step towards failure.

Actually, the title is Visual Basic Game Programming with DirectX, and it IS by Jonathan Harbour. I''ve read it already, and learned a lot from it. I highly recommend it- it''s a really really good book.

There is a series of three tutorials by Jack Hoxley (spelling?) on this site under ''articles and resources'', they teach basic d3d8 setup, Vertex and Indice buffers.
