I am using Bloodshed Software''s Dev C++ as my Windows C++ compiler. All the tutorials only describe how to setup DX on Visual C++. How do I set it up under Dev C++? Are there any general rules for setting up the API? You''''re just jealous because the voices are talking to me!

Yeah, just get the import libraries from the link posted by our mystery guest above, and you''ll be ready to go. The SDK header files work fine (although, if I remember, you have to declare a UINT_PTR type in dinput.h).

Also, you can''t use D3DX with Dev-c++. (I know someone wrote a wrapper for the Borland compiler - but for Dev..I dunno).
