DX8 question

Recommended Posts

Ive been using DirectX 6 for making games and I was wondering if I should make the change to DirectX 8 or not. I''ve been out of the loop for a while so I don''t really know anything about the changes made between Dx6 and Dx8 so if anybody would like to help me out I''d be grateful. Thanks

DirectX 8 is pretty much all 3D orientated. They took out DirectDraw.

You can use DirectX8 for making 2D games btw, the only difference is you use textures and primitives instead of surfaces
Look into it, I remember furby''s site has a few tutorials on D3D8.
