Hi guys. I want to start doing some game programming as I've been doing c++ for quite a while now and I have a lot of spare time. So my question is, what do I need to do to start using DirectX? I'm using dev c++ 4.9.2 as my compliler. Thanks in advance

Switch to using Visual Studio and Visual C++ compilers instead of Dev-C++ and MinGW. Download the DirectX SDK, and build+run the tutorials that can be found in the sample browser. Modify and tweak the code to see how it works. Read the programming guide help docs in the DirectX SDK.
