DirectX with c#

P: n/a
Hi guys,

I'm a student of c#, and I was wondering how one would take advantage of
multimedia in most c# apps/games. I assume one would use directx9, since there
doesn't seem to be any support for audio, video, etc in c# itself (correct me
if im wrong there).

What is the best way to learn directX, especially for c#? Can anyone recommend
any good books?

Thanks,

Russ

Yeah, directX is the way to go. I haven't gotten a book for it (cause
I just used a little bit of directX and hacked that together). These
are the 4 bookmarks that I have saved still:

DirectX SDK Download:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...st/directx.asp
(it's about 200MB, hope you have high speed connection. It comes with
about 20-30 sample programs, plus it creates a DirectX project wizard
for VS).

MSDN library:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...x/dx9intro.asp

A good tutorial:
http://www.kuhnstall.de/tutorials/dx9sharp1.html

Some samples
http://www.codeproject.com/cs/media/#DirectX

that's all the bookmarks I have. I know there were some DirectX and
C# / VB.NET books coming out (already or soon). Not sure if any of
them are good or not. Try amazon.com i guess.

Akkadian,

I have a book on managed DirectX 9 and C# coming out next week entitled
"Introduction to 3D Game Engine Design" through Apress. It is as the title
implied an introductory level book that should help get you started.
