Which language? Which language? BudgieUK (Programmer) (OP) 26 Feb 04 08:33 I'm a C++ programmer, but a "complete novice" to Direct X.I want to tinker with directx at home, what language do most people use to interface with Direct X?Can anyone recommend a cheap but decent C++ compiler for home use?Thanks for any repliesChearsBudgie RE: Which language? timmay3141 (Programmer) 26 Feb 04 16:21 I have been using C++, and it's a pain compared to OGL. It's easier with C# and almost as fast, but I think there are a few things you can't do (yet) with C#. Don't use VB if you want to run at an acceptable frame rate. The vast majority of DX programmers are using C++. RE: Which language? BudgieUK (Programmer) (OP) 1 Mar 04 10:57 Ok cheers for that.Let the fun (?) commence! RE: Which language?
