DirectX SDK.

Recommended Posts

It means that you can use the interfaces provided for creating graphics, sound and input in your code. If your hoping that it will improve the games that you are playing on your system, then you''ll need to download the DirectX drivers.

Hm. In short answer, yes; it means you can "do" DirectX coding.

However, DXSDK8.0/1 doesn''t have out-of-the-box support for Dev-C++, so you''ll want to get the package (it''s available on the bloodshed site) that specifically allows that.

You have to understand, the SDK (the functional part), is simply a collection of header files, libraries, and DLLs. You still have to learn quite a bit to go from console C++ coding to 3D graphics and such.

Anyway,
ZE.

In short, yes you will have to download something separate now. Get the DirectX 8 package.
