Every little tidbit of information on Directx? I''m using the Tricks book and Andre explains every little tidbit and I don''t understand a thing. He said using it is 10x easier than understanding it, and I hope thats true. But do I really need to know EVERYTHING about COM? I understand the basics of it all, but I get lost later. I can do the programs just fine, and change it around by looking at it, but when I read the book it just confuses me. I really doubt I need to know everything, but that''s why I''m here asking =D
LaMothe's book hardly explains "every little tidbit". Most of what he writes is stuff that would be beneficial to know. As for COM, you don't really need to understand it a whole lot, as long as you get the basic idea. But knowing it can't hurt.

you don''t need to understand com and such to be able to write your own directx games... the way you program apps running under windows may be confusing at first, but with time it will all fall into place... experience is the best teacher...
