the problem is the way this book is made,i wrote everything from the book and i got errors,then i noticed the files from the CD have either more of the code or less than whats on the book and it suppised to be the same.

i just got a compile error that said there was no association with a file or something like that but i built it and it work

all this stuff is frustrating >;{

is there a book someone could reccomend that doesnt do stuff like this,i mean that it actually does what is says,theres two books that i bought and i got stuck somewhere and i did exactly what it says.

please someone tell me there are actually well design books >;{ arrrg

Just a question, is it Programming Role-Playing Games with DirectX? That is the book I got, and I found it rather awkward to follow sometimes, and some things were just lacking in detail that really needed covered, and some small things were totally dragged out for far too long and in more detail then needed. Though, it does cover some of everything, which is a double-edged sword more or less.

Sorry I can't personally help with fullscreen thing yet... seeing as how thats an issue I am also having. He never really covers making a fullscreen window in the book, even though he points out how certain things differ between Windowed and Fullscreen modes.

I found the Book "Direct3D Programming - Kick Start" from Clayton Walnum
really good, there is most covered you need to get your first Direct3D-Program running.
