     Here is an example of creating a DirectX 8 enviroment and some basic things like draving line, custom vertex, text. I'm a beginer in DirectX tough i'm very expirienced in vb. I was comparing dx7 and dx8. In dx 7 i succeded to make 2d primitives as circle, line or stuff like that. Dx8 is quite different, and this code is result of 2 day analysis of dx sdk and its help. Anyone more expirienced should post some example on drawing basic 2d stuff as line, rectangle, circle, elipse, but if possible without usage of custom vertex type. Any comment would be appriciated.

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
