I guess I will learn 2D graphics while learning and soldifying some 3D concepts that I dont fully grasp. I just want to know exactly where to learn 2D graphics? I have the DirectX 8 SDK and the tutorial are like all for 3D. I see the DirectDraw samples but no code for it. Or explanations. Can someone tell me where to find the tutorials for using DirectDraw in the SDK or somewhere online to do that? Or should I use another API to learn 2D? Thanks for your input. This topic is also in the Game programming forum section too. "Ogun''s Laughter Is No Joke!!!" - Ogun Kills On The Right, A Nigerian Poem.

there arent too many 2d tutorials out there, but over at drunken hyiena''s, in one of his first tutorials, he explains a little 2d. It may not be what you are looking for, but it will at least get you started. http://www.drunkenhyena.com/ , later-

SDL is a nice library, certainly, but I''d question it''s
usefulness in actually learning 2D graphics programming.
It just does too much for you IMHO.

Of course if you''re interested in making games rather than
learning then it''s great
