I would start by researching TCP/IP. I personally don''t like Direct Play. I program directly for Winsock, which provides an api very much like that of standard Unix sockets.

DirectX is best for the graphics, input device, music and sound.

What type of Multiplayer game are you trying to create?

1. I use Linux server, and the client users are for WIN98.
2. I plan to programming a poke game for multi-players.
3. Which best language I need to use?
4. Has any winsock libary ?
5. Has any game libary ?

Thanks a lot.
