1) Why is dx9.0c so special? 2) What is managed code? 3) Is it that Net stuff, and is that why BF2 takes four minutes to load and play a game? Verifying client data sounds like java programming to me.. 4) Do people still use vb6 or where is the new herd migrating to? Thanks for your support.

1) Do you mean over 9.0b? There are probably various improvements, most likely in the D3DX classes... Over earlier versions (such as 8.1), there are many new features and many new functions that can speed up your programming.

2) Managed code (at least for DirectX) is the .NET implementation of DirectX 9. It encapsulates all the DirectX functions into classes that are very organized and easily integratable into .NET apps (C# and VB).

3) NO, BF2 takes 4 minutes to load because it uses very omplicated scenes and tons of geometry and textures. On a slower hard drive (or a heavily fragmented one - tried defragging?) it can take a while to0 load all the resources into system and video memory.

4) Many companies will use VB6 to maintain older projects and such, but I doubt there is much new development in it nowadays. Look around though, there may be a few surprises...
