Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial about directX. all of the ones here tend to suppose you know something about it. I''m currently using the fire demo to test things out in DX. so if anyone can help me i would be glad.

You could check out Witchlord''s site, although if my memory serves me correctly it focuses on D3D, there are a couple of books around if you want to splash out - namely Tricks Of The Windows Game Programming Guru''s by Andre LaMothe and DirectX 7 in 24 hours by somebody else.

They will give you good knowledge of most things, I''m not sure if I got the title of the second one right and the CD with LaMothe''s book is a little ropey (ok, its crap).
I can''t think of anymore right now.

If you're willing to head to a bookstore and pay $20 instead of just going to a website, you can get André LaMothe's book Windows Game Programming For Dummies. It's a very good book that I'm using. One word of advice: enter the example code yourself or you'll never remember how to do anything.
