Don''t ...

Why isn''t there a faq around to tell ppl about this? 3D-Engines are a major undertaking, and you will just burn your hands

...start with getting a box onto tha screen, move it, etc etc etc

can't i use something else insted of DX?

Those tutorials cover OpenGL, not DirectX, so if you follow them you will be able to use something else.

As has already been suggested, you might want to try the NeHe OpenGL tutorials first (not to be confused with the NeXe site which covers DirectX).

Why would you make your own? Why re-invent the water? There are plenty good and free engines available.
I''ve started making my own engine too, and it went really great, but when you plan to make a game with that engine, it takes too much time.
Making a good 3D engine requires about 2 to 3 years developing if you know what you want to accomplish, so my advise: look on the websites below:

http://www.ogre3d.org
http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net

If you knów how to use an engine and make a good structured game on it, you don''t need to proove yourself that you can make an engine.
