General Notes Relating To DirectX

If you ever get the following message:
Error	3	fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'dxtrans.h': No such file or directory	C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\include\Qedit.h	498	DSVL
To fix this, you'll need to install the Aug 2007 DirectX, because newest versions do not include it. (why?)

Direct Input

Controlling your programs from the keyboard and mouse for games is important to get right. Controlling your programs with gamepads, steering wheels, 3d controllers, and other input devices takes work to implement. DirectInput was the mechanism to interface with the computer using a gamepad. Today I'm not sure, as MS has sort of left this API and is pushing XInput. Though, XInput does not currently support any old gamepad, it has to be the xbox 360 controller.
DirectInput - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I have my DirectShow content on a separate page. Video Processing, check it out.
