Hey I just want to get your opinion on something. I am makeing a 2D hex strategy game with little square units, using Managed DX9. Some people say that using D3D is alot easier and better than using DDraw so I am trying it out. I understand sprites and all that what I was thinking of doing whas drawing hex shapes and squar ones and using the bitmaps as textures to the shapes. In other words my map would be a bunch of hex shapes and each one would have a bitmap as a texture to make up my map, and the same for the units. Is that the correct way to do it?
