Is there any faster methods to display graphics then directx7 ? Does VB 6 support directx9 ? I want to be able to display tiles for an mmorpg I have started. I would prefer if it would support aplha blending. It needs to be really fast. Any advice would be appreciated and source code even more so. Jebb99@Excite.com

Unfortunately Microsoft don''t appear to be supporting Visual Basic 6 in their most recent DirectX 9 SDK. They do however support all the .NET languages (VB.NET, C#.NET, C++.NET) presumably because they want to promote these languages and can''t be bothered to continue support for VB6.

If you are using Direct3D7 at the moment, I recommend you keep using it (rather than bothering to learn anything else). Moving to Direct3D8 won''t give you that much of a performance increase.

If you are using DirectDraw7 at the moment, I recommend you move to Direct3D 8, for the alpha blending capabilities.
