now i am studiing directx9 for managed code and i want to make some game to improve my tehnique. if you decidde to use the net framework than contact me.
P.S. directx9 for managed code is more easier because is more object oriented and is only 5% slower, it has the avantage that you can write easily some code. there are some 3d engines too but i didn't have time to study them. i sugest using the .net and directx, but the main problem is to find an good story for the game and ...we talk an other time.
