I''m wanting to get a new book, and am interested in Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus by Andre LaMothe, However, there are 2 of these, 1st and 2nd edition, is the 2nd edition a revision of the 1st edition, or is it, like volume 2? thanks

I have the 1st edition and I looked at the 2nd and to me they look exactly the same but it might be different. Also, I was looking over it in a bookstore and the chapter were at least the same. He doesn't have another book on 3d which is supposed to be the 2nd part to his first book. So I think the 2nd ed. is the 1st revised but still it might be differnt.. I think the 2nd one has been updated too because the 1st one is a little old.

TOTWGPG 2nd Edition is basically the 1st edition with a few updates(the first book focused on DX6, 2nd edition focuses on DX8), fixed typos, talks about 16-bit graphics instead of just 8-bit. Nothing major. If you''re going to buy this book, definately get 2nd edition because it''s more up to date. Or if you want, I can sell you the 1st edition for half price.
