Hello. I''m relatively new to Direct X period. I found stuff on using Direct 3D for versions 7 and below, but I want to use Direct X 8. MS''s help files may as well have been written in greek, and the sample programes made little sense to me. Any idea as to how I would set up Direct 3D version 8? Basically what i''m trying to do is create the device, and whatever follows that and set a screen mode. That way I can use the 3d acceleration capabilities. - Lex

Click the under the tutorials section on the left "All" then start from the begginning and work your way down.

They aren''t much different from the tutorials in the DX8 sdk though but have a considerable greater amount of commenting and more laymans terms. NeHe doesn''t seem to worship terminology and COM the way microsoft does.
