Dev C++ and DirectX 9

Recommended Posts

If you currently develop in Dev C++ and use DirectX with it, please keep reading. I have heard that there are problems getting Dev C++ to work with DirectX. Is that true? Are there some tutorials or websites online that can help me get Dev C++ working with DirectX? NOTE: Yes, I can Google...I am looking for personal recommendations (meaning, websites or tutorials you have used yourself). Thanks, Tom

I second Rob's recommendation. I'm currently using DX9 with VC++ Express and everything is working great. Not to mention VC++ Express is spiffier than Dev-C++. ;)

What's wrong with Visual Studio 2005 Express? It's free, has more functionality then Dev-C++, and links up to DirectX 9 seemlessly.


There's nothing "wrong" with it. A few members on my team have been programming in Dev C++. Instead of making them switch over to VC++ Express I thought I would see if Dev C++ could use DirectX just as easily.

The answer would seem to be...you can jury-rig it to work with Dev C++ but it is a pain in the tuckus.

Does that sum it up?

There is a devpak for directx 9, although i don't believe there's one for the october version. I have it on my pc, although i didn't use it (I chickened out and switched to allegro =]). Should be easy to use though, i haven't encountered a devpak that gave me trouble. If you can't find it let me know..
