What version of DirectX does "Tricks of the windows game programming gurus" cover? I''ve read that the diffrence between <7 and 8+ is major? So there would be little or no idea at all to read it unless it covers 8 right? Thanks for your time.

I believe that TotWGPG uses DirectX 7.0....but the most important part of TotWGPG is not DirectX syntax, but rather the theory behind game programming concepts, which this book has in spades. It''s definately worth a read! ^_^

Zoinks!

The API-specific stuff isn''t really as important as the concepts/algorithms/etc. are.

No, it covers DX 6.1
there is a mayor diference between 7 and 8 relating to 2d graphics, but dx 8 has support for all the previous versions.
