hi! for quite some time now i've been building my c# knowledge. i've done some simple drawing programs(and we are making a snake clone on the c# programming course :D ). i've been working with Reimers tutorials and they are good but i got a feeling they get quite complicated at some points(indices...). so does anyone know any other directX tutorials for beginners(free possibly but a good Ebook is ok also)?

Maybe it would be better if you would get into Data Structures, Algorithms, Design Patterns and Program Design...at least for a some months(years).
Also, study the source codes of (not overly simple) games, to see how they work.
So, after all of these, you might choose the basic(like DirectX), or not so basic(something starting with Torque?!) TOOL and start to program games.
(I mean a brush wont make you a painter, or a ruler wont make you an architect.)

Hi;

Take a look here:

And if you are interested in a good tutorial of DirectX 9 and C++ take a look here:

http://www.directxtutorial.com/Tutorial9/tutorials.aspx

One good book (althoug is out dated) is Beginning C# Game Programming by Ron Penton. I really don't know any C# and MDX new release since all support from Microsoft is target to the XNA Framework, more info here:

Good luck.

guardian24: thanks for those things! ill make sure to learn a thing or two(or a couple of hundred) about them.

ejele012: thanks for the links! i'm more into c# since it's similar to java(which i will be learning in school next year and it's easier for self-teaching than c++ imo :P).
