GeneralC++/CX + Metro + DirectX PinmemberVuNic4-Dec-12 5:19 
I've been making up my mind for so long to break into 3D programming. I do not do 3D at my work. But just out of my curiosity, I've been skimming through D3D articles & trying to catch up with the terms and 3D buzz words. When I look at conventional D3D projects it seemed plausible. I could date to try out few little things.
I've been hearing news about MS strategy on core game development for windows platforms. They've killed XNA and made C++/CX the only way to do core 3D. (not to mind sharp/slimDx/Mono).
I knew C++/Cx is not the common man's C++. But I was guessing it'd would be something like the C++/CLI.
 
Now I downloaded a sample D3D game that's done with C++/CX, my quick reaction is it's not for the faint hearts. The learning curve trajectory looks out of the sky towards the moon. It's a multiple of the feeling I got when I tried to learn Asp.net MVC just by opening a sample project. (Please note I don't do web stuff at work as well, but kept in touch with ASP.net to some extent) Too much for the rusting brain Hmmm | :|
 
I'm happy C++ is still alive for conventional Windows applications. Smile | :) .
I'd thump my chest and try once more to go through at darned C++CX Cool | :cool: lets see

Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
