An excellent book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Programming Role-playing Games with DirectX 8.0 (Game Development) (Paperback)
My own 2 cents, briefly - it covers most aspects of the game development process in substantial detail, and presents it all in a clear, friendly, well-explained manner.
The sample code is excellent, and if you want to get developing RPGs with DirectX 8.0, this is an excellent start.
Speaking as mainly a VB/Dot Net developer, I'd have been keen to see code that used C#, etc, but there's no denying that C++ is the most common language for DirectX development. If you're not familiar with C++, you'll need to familiarise yourself with its concepts to follow the code, but apart from that, what are you waiting for?
