The AppWizard is dealing with all the initialization stuff, window and device creation.

You will save a lot of time using it.

I''m using MFC and therefore already have a framework. So I "adapted" the MS code to work with MFC. I also have a nice plugin architecture, where I write a plugin dll to do just the stuff I want and my driver exe does the dirty work.

I highly suggest using the directx appwizard, esp if your new...You can gain a lot of insight on how to setup stuff, esp the network...

I created a tetris like clone (in 3d) with network play in about 2 weeks (with a few breaks here and there )

it gives you action mapping (changing the keys on the fly), network, sound, music, graphics, 3d models, etc...all in one nice little paackage.


P.S. you can find the appwizard and other little goodies here :
