most people say that OpenGL is less complex in the end and you do get nicer results alot easier. but for 2D DX7/8 seems to be the way to start. I know of nehe.gamedev.net for OpenGL but I know you''ll need alot of resources for DX work....let a more knowlegable person here help you with that.

I made my own file format (I wrote a conversion program for ASE files that 3DS exports). It was actually very easy. If you know C/C++ already, it''s just like any other file, you don''t have to make it too complex.
