Hi there ! I've been wondering if there is a directx 9 devpack in development for devcpp ... Also , if i use Directx8/9 devpack , do i have to install the directx 8/9 sdk from microsoft first/after it/at all ? Can i still use the directx7 sdk documentation for directdraw ? Is this documentation still "current" , i.e , is DX8/9 sdk/devpack fully backwards compatible ? My target development is a 2d tetris like game . Sorry for the massive question attack , but since they all related to eachother , i figured that i could ask them at once :) Thanks in advance for any answer and/or advice .

I'll do my best to answer.

DevCpp has a DirectX Package if you go under Tools->Check for updates/Packages

You can use the libs from it to compile DX code, atleast I do and it works fine.

The documentatition for DirectDraw should be fine, it still uses DirectDraw7

My Answers were brief, hope that helps.
