This Game Programming article http://www.gamedev.net/reference/programming/features/gpgenesis1/default.asp is imcomplete. I begin reading the Win32 introduction, and the author left much things, example: ShowWindow(); UpdateWindow(); .... Only reading this tutorial, i cant make a window. Iam worried about, the followings of this serie have the same problem. Because i have hoped learn DirectX in this article. Somebody can say me what is left in this first part, and in the followings?

the article is quite complete the authors intention way to describe the basics behind the code he posted and not to present a c&p code snippet

if you need to know more search for MSDN on google which is a in depth documentation about nearly everything C++ related except custom libraries

also check out nehe.gamedev.net for windows base code

the MSDN has some DX chapters as well i think

but all the functions you need to know are descibed in the MSDN which is a must for any win32 programmer

The code is in the article. WinMain, CreateWindowEx, CALLBACK MsgHandler, PeekMessage, TranslateMessage, DispatchMessage, PostMessage, SendMessage, and a pseudo-code game loop.

Then havent a code thats works?

If by 'works' you mean able copy-and-paste in one action, then no. But the code it does have can be combined into one WinMain function, yes.
