Hi, I've been reading many books on DirectX and now I have a basic understanding and think that the best way for me to learn now is to just jump into making a simple game and learn from experience. Do you know of any books or online tutorials that go through step by step and make a simple game with you using DirectX9 and c++? Thank you!

I don't know of any, but you could always look at some open source games and try and piece together your own game from that. Or else you could start simple and get something like a grid and a box and make some sort of simplistic racing game from it. Then look into model loaders and animation and get a human walking on the screen. Then slowly you will gradually put together your own game :D

There isn't any shortcuts here although I do wish there was :(

Hey thanks man! I've decided to start simple. Check out my very first DX and C++ game that I made over the course of two days!

Would you mind telling me what books you read. I'm also trying to get into programming with DirectX 9 and need a good place to start. Thanks
