What are some of the better DirectX books you guy''s have bought and would suggest? I don''t plan to do any Direct3D programming, just 2D ddraw stuff.

Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus

I can´t comment on "Tricks of the Windows...bla bla bla.."

I have two DirectX books..

"Inside DirectX" and
"DirectX Complete".

The first mentioned was far better than the second.

"Teach yourself DirectX 7 in 24 hours" look ok too, despite the lame titel.

I agree with the Tricks of the windows game programming gurus - 2D and 3D funamentals.

This is an excellent book on the topic. It''s sometimes a bit complex for the c++ beginner. But that you could fix with a book on just c++.

5 stars from me.

I found that lamothe''s previous books, (tricks of the game programming gurus, etc.) were more ... C oriented, rather than using C++ classes and such.

Do his new books improve on this by using a more object oriented approach?
