Hi all, I know, how to write a Graphics-Engine using Directdraw (a Map, some Buidlings and Figure-Bitmaps running as Frames...). On an other place I read, that Direct3D can do this too but faster. Is this so? Are there Examples (DX9, c#) anywhere in the Web? Thanx alot, Roman

If you do just simple 2d blits of images without any extra effects you could very well stick to Directdraw.

With direct3d you get that plus you can easily use rotation, shearing, coloring, alpha blending. And it usually will end up faster since most modern video cards are highly optimizied for 3d rendering.

Thank You, Endurion!
But, I have found only Examples using directdraw. How is the way with direct3d? In the SDK-Dokumentation I found only examples with meshes in c#. Do You know, where I can get Informations ?
