I started work in a company almost 2 months ago. And they are using managed directx with c# (to make tools basically)
I've also been using it for some tools, but it's hard to find documentation on how to do some of the stuff I need to do.
In fact, while looking for such stuff, I usually find slimDX references.
I want to start using slimDX, because it's the right thing to do. As the slimdx website says:
When to use MDX
Don't. MDX has been deprecated for many years now. It still targets an older .NET framework version and suffers from many bugs and flaws such as loader lock that will never be fixed. SlimDX supports everything exposed by MDX and much more, so there's no excuse for choosing MDX for a new project.
But I can't just go and say: "hey, I want to use this instead, because the loader lock bug won't ever be fixed"
Anyways, I want to use it at least for the tools where I'll be the only programmer.
I didn't really go to the point did I?
My questions are these: what other advantages does it have, in practical day use, compared to MDX?
And if the artists use the tool I make, will they just be able to use the exe file without installing anything else?
