If you don''t have the Directx SDK, you have a few options.

-Download it from microsoft.com
-Order it from microsoft for s+h
-Buy a book with the sdk on the CD

There is one file containing libraries and headers only (which is not that big) and then one with all the documentation. They are under 10 MB (~7, I think) all together. You''re only missing out on the examples...but it''s quite sufficent to develop everything.

I''m not too crazy over books, or else I''d have it I guess, but it sounds like I''ll just get the required files only. Any idea where to get ''em? Microsoft maybe? I''m checking, so...I''ll post something if I find ''em...

not to rile anybody up, but what''s wrong with the books? it''s handy to have when coding so you don''t have to change windows whenever you look up a function. and you won''t fry yer eyes when reading up on "how to" stuff. anyway, my thoughts.

void main()
{
glRun(quake);
getuserinput();
display();
}

I found the DirectX libraries along with the DirectX docs if anyone needs them. The libraries weigh in at 1,381 Kb and the docs are 5,441 Kb. Total is around 6.7Mb. Thanx for talling me about these. If you didn''t, knowing me, I''d probably D/L that 128Mb file on my 56.6k!!

Don''t get me wrong, books rule to be honest. You can get information easily from them. Also the eyestrain you mentioned from looking at a monitor forever. Solution: Print! hehe
