    Learning Direct3D Programming properly

    I'm not sure I would even know where to begin with that. I wouldn't know how to interact with hardware without using Direct3D functions.   I think that would be putting me way over my head for now, and that I should probably just stick with trying to learn how to use Direct3D properly.    What do you think?
  2. Hi GameDev community, it's been a while!   I've been doing hobby game programming for a few years now, but I feel like considering how long I've been doing it for, I am nowhere near as fluent with it as I should be.   I learned all that I know about DirectX 9 programming from www.directxtutorial.com and while I feel that was a decent start, I feel like I've missed learning a lot of things that is therefore limiting my ability to program. I've been able to make basic games in the past with not much of an issue, but now I decided to take on my biggest personal project so far, which is nothing huge, just a Doom-style FPS, and I'm quickly finding that I'm on the internet looking for help on things that I feel I should already know how to do.   That said, I'm wondering if anyone here can point me to a good resource (website/book/anything) on learning to program in DirectX properly. I had a look through the documentation that ships with the DXSDK but it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.  I need something that will start with the basics again, and not only tell me what to do but explain /why/ it works that way so that I can retain the information without it just being a bunch of jargon.   I'm still using Direct3D 9 functions, I've been meaning to learn Direct3D 11 functions but looking over it briefly it seems a lot more complex and I've been putting it off because of that.   So my questions are as follows:   -Do I need to learn to use 9 effectively before migrating to 11? -What is a good resource to start learning to program in DirectX effectively and know what I'm actually doing?   Thanks in advance.
