     Thanks for downloading my code. This is really just an example of how to begin a world in Direct3D 8. The graphics aren't very good, but I hope that it maybe helps someone. It's pretty well commented and I think it's quite easy to understand. If you have any questions/queries, I'll endeavour to answer them. Please provide feedback and please vote. I wasn't going to post this yet, but I need some help to finish/make it better. I am stuck on how to do collision detection and also how to make colours in a texture transparent. If anyone can help with either of these problems, I'd be very grateful. You can either provide your response in the form of feedback, or drop me a line at Hopefully, then I can release a complete D3D 8 world. Thanks for your time. Special thanks must go to Simon Price ( for his excellent D3D tutorials and the help which he gave me on some of this project.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
