Sample text

This chapter shows you everything you need to know to get started with Direct3D. In later chapters I’ll show you DirectSound, DirectInput, and DirectPlay, but for now let’s stick with getting the graphics going! 0. My first stabs at graphics programming were extremely basic, using the provided graphics library that came with the Watcom SDK. My first graphics program did nothing more than draw a single point in the center of the screen, but let me tell you, that was one magical program. Sure, I could get the computer to do fairly uninteresting stuff like print text and read in text, but now I could actually make pictures.

The implementation of DirectX graphics pretty much followed this train of thought. You had DirectDraw, which looked after 2D graphics, and Direct3D, which looked after 3D. Direct3D was further split into two groups—Immediate Mode, which provided a low-level interface to the 3D graphics hardware that was generally considered very complex but fast. Retained Mode provided a higher-level, easy to use interface to the hardware, but it was bloated, inflexible, and slow. 0. There was just nothing left to do with it, and most resources were being focused on Direct3D.

N The ability to add objects that can listen to the stream of window messages arriving to the application and add customized ways to handle them. n A simple main loop that runs repeatedly until the application exits. The way I’ll do this is with two classes. One of them will abstract the Windows code that needs to be run; it is called cWindow. It will be used by a bigger class that is responsible for actually running the application. This class is called cApplication. Each new application that you create (with a couple of exceptions) will be subclassed from cApplication.
