“These areas” refer to the areas of AI and Networking, why would you need to know dx????. Abit of common sense now… :P[/quote:746463eff5]

I guess I was confused by the wording of your post. Wasn’t there something called DirectPlay for games networking? Not that I really have any interest in programming networking for games right now.[/quote:746463eff5]

Direct play was a lame attempt at encapulsating networking fucntionality into Directx (it had nothing to do with graphics though). I think it died a horrible death. For games these days some other sort of middleware is used for this; Demonware\Quazal etc..
