I'm a DirectX beginner, and want to create a fruit (slots) machine. At the moment I'm concentrating on the reel. Is the best way to go about this, to create a cylinder type object and wrap a texure (my images for the reel) around it? If so how do I do it.. or what things should I read up on? Textures/Sprites/etc? Simple examples would be a fantastic help.. :) Pete

You would probably just make a texture that contains all of the fruits and uv map it to a cylinder in a modeling program. Then export it as a .x mesh and load it and the texture into your program. That would be the easiest way. All you would have to know how do do is load a .x file and render it with a texture.

Although if you don't have any modeling programs or people to make you this cylinder you can enter the uv coordinates and vertex positions directly into a vertex buffer. This method would take a lot more time though.

This is all just basic stuff so you could pick up a beginning directx book or go to a website and get a tutorial. Try www.two-kings.de or www.toymaker.info
