     I've had DirectX 8 installed for only a few hours so I've just made my first program to test it out. This would be useful for beginners. It spins around a pyrimid shape which glows different colors. Very simple and commented on almost every line. Probably requires some sort of hardware acceleration. After hours and hours of downloading 150MB through my 56KB/sec phone line, DX8 seems worth the wait. You'll be suprised at how easy it is to program! Although where is the support for 2D? I'd be interested in any 2D DX8 progs. Please comment if this is useful to you, or if you have any problems with it.

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
