    DirectX for C#?

    Is there a website that is similar to DirectX for VB, except for C#? Also what are the (dis-)advantages of XNA over DirectX in C#?

    DirectX as is works for C#. And XNA is just a wrapper around DirectX.

    Dx9 in C# is practically the same as Dx8 in VB. I learned through guesswork . Just remember to write code in C# style. Cover dry patches by using google.

    PS: You may need to download and reference a Dx9 DLL. Again search google for any bits you don't understand.

    PPS: There are loads of different Dx9 DLLs out there and they vary slightly from version to version. So it is better to use guesswork rather than tutorials.

    An excellent site for learning DirectX7, 8 & 9 (for VB6, C# & VB.net) would be: directx4vb.vbgamer.com --- For my projects and games see: pieper.freehostia.com

    I can highly recommend XNA however, it simplifies a lot of the tedious tasks you'd normally have to deal with when writing applications with managed dx - and it has a lot of nifty classes to .
