Try picking up a mud. I know SMAUG 1.4 runs on Win32 and if you can get that compiled and running you will be able to learn much about coding a networked game. Although the code is in C and not C++, you will find that the methods and practices are essentially the same. Good luck.

There are other ways to go about it as well. Learn DirectPlay and look at examples of those games. There are many types of networked play. Tell us more about what you want to create and we can probably answer you better.

ps Just search for SMAUG in any search engine and you will get the site to download it cause I can't remember it offhand.

"Teach Yourself DirectX 7 in 24 Hours" is a great way to start out. He doesn''t go really far in depth but he does give you alot to start with. Honestly, though, from what I''ve seen, "Inside DirectX" is probably the best DirectPlay book.
