this question has probably been asked before but what api should i use for my network programming? I am using directx for the rest of my game but i have heard about other network api''s besides dplay. I want to have support for serial and modem connections NOT internet.
There really aren''t many Dplay specific tutorials out there. There is a book called "DirectX Complete" that has a pretty section on Dplay (in comparison to most books that don''t even touch it). Also, if you want some code to look at, try the Genesis3d site (www.genesis3d.com) and download the GDemo1 source and the SDK source. There is a wrapper and some basic networking code that may help you get started. That is the best I have found so far on the net so far for Dplay source.
