I have learned how to do all of the basic console things in c++ but now I want to get into game programming. I want to use Direct X but I don't know where to start. All of the tutorials I have looked at don't make any sense. How should I get started? If you make games in Direct X, how did you get started. Thanks.

Have you looked into sdl or even opengl? They might be easier to setup and start programming with rather than directx. If you want to use directx, I would say get a good book on the subject. Also make sure it is updated so the content is current. Also make sure you download and install the directx sdk and configure it to work with your compiler. Other than that, just a good book and the articles/posts on Gamedev should help you with directx programming.
