I don't know how helpful theyll be to you if your new to DirectX, but the DirectX SDK help has all the stuff your looking for. The best idea is to get a book like Windows Game Programming for Dummies though. Hopefully you won't be upset by the Dummies title .

As for a compiler I personally prefer Visual C++, but there are many other good ones out there such as Watcom and Borland.

I also recommend picking up a copy of Inside DirectX. It covers alot of stuff the dummies book doesnt... I know i have both of them. Main thing dummies is missing is directplay. Thue there is little on 16+ color and such.

Is there anyone with tutorials, docs, information, samples on how to use the directx?? (C++)

Which c++ is best to be used? visual c++?
