    another question on d3d sprite

    Depending on what version of the sdk you are using, it could vary wildly. Basically you have two approaches. First you can preload each piece from a file, or you can load the basic texture to a surface edit it. If you don't know about surfaces etc. buy a book, as the other question you posted could be answered easily if you owned a book. Check out the book section on this website.

    Does anyone know of a good C++ Complier?

    Quote:Original post by Sneftel Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition is free, blows Dev-CPP's IDE out of the water in terms of usability, and IMHO is nicer than Code::Blocks (though it's more of a tossup between the two than with Dev-CPP). He wanted something he could download off dialup. Of course VC++ 2005 is better. Here's a link to a tutorial. Also, a google search will give you more info than you would ever need. Here's a book straight from the inventor. I haven't read it, though.

    Dev-cpp is a great free compiler. here's a link. It is only 9 mb, so it shouldn't take long. Hope this helps, ProgrammingNerd

    English bashing rant, human languages

    Actually, english derives from west german. Which is quite ironic, considering that speaking german is quite a bit more difficult than english, with declinations and nouns with gender, which are nonexistant in english. However, writing flawless english it one of the most difficult things for a person learning english.

    Make sure that you use an orthogonal projection to show the map. Also, be sure to search the search the "Isometric Land" forum on this site to find a lot of info regarding rendering the screen. Sorry I couldn't help more, but I program 3d only. ProgrammingNerd

    I think I have a problem

    If that's a problem, then I must be totally screwed up. Also, giving blood does that to people. I know that from experience.

    Depend on what you do with it. Does $450 justify for a dual-core cpu and a graphics card that most games can't take advantage of? Besides, my parents bought it for me, which brings my cost down to $0!!!!!!!!!!!! Still, you computer is f***ing awesome! Good Buy!

    Since when did games need EXTRA HIGHT performance to run?

    Not to mension that xbox live costs cash when you need to pay for their service plus a high speed connection. Most pc games have free online play plus you can get all of the addons free from the manufacturers website.
