with a modest amount of c++ knowledge i've decided to try and progress into game design, and picked up jim adams rpg book to help understand how everything fits together in a game. however, i'm having terrible problems in just getting the core program files to compile properly. i'm using dev-c++ with the directx 8 sdk that came with the book (i originally had the directx9 sdk installed but that caused more conflicts than it was worth). i've managed to fix most of the things i've come across so far, but this next one i'm having a problem with, the error is in core_network.cpp with the code if(FAILED(DirectPlay8Create(&IID_IDirectPlay8Client, (void**)&pDPClient, NULL))) giving the error: 42 C:\BookCode\GameCore\Core_Network.cpp `DirectPlay8Create' undeclared (first from a lot of searching, i do know that there *was* some updates from the authors website, but when i try the link provided the site gives a 'content blocked' error. I'm now totally stuck and would appreciate any help as someone totally new to directx programming.
