One question for ya. Why would you want to make a 3d game in D3D8? Microsoft still supports ddraw 7.0 so if you are doing a 2d game, I don''t see why you would choost dx8. this is the way the wanted it, so don''t just upgrade because a new version is out.

Try to think of DX8 as the "enhanced 3D only" version of DX, and think of 7.0 as the "good all around" version of DX. Although it''s still technically possible to create a 2D game in 8.0, you have to got through a lot of 3D methods and ideas to do it. Stick with 7.0 for 2D, but once you want 3D, use 8.0 over 7.0 beccause 8.0 is so much easier to get something 3D than 7.0 and manipulate it.
