How do I make rain?

Top view, side view? Create a raindrop sprite/seamless texture with transparency and tile it over your surface. Each frame change the X and Y offset to make it look like the rain is moving down and in the direction of the wind.

[EDIT] BTW, read the FAQ. This forum is for general graphics (API independent) discussion. This belongs in the DirectX forum.

->DirectX

Does it? Only because he is using DX for it? Sounds more like a general question to me...

I think Microsoft had an example on particle sprites (Maybe this was only in 8 though). You could take a look at that, it''s very similar to what you''d need for rain.
