That book ".NET Game Programming with DirectX 9.0" by Alexandre Lobao and Ellen Hatton is incredibly good. They use VB.NET 2003 and DX9.0 in that book.

Hi thanks for your reply, I have already ordered that book because it also
was suggested to me in another ng. But thanks anyway.

Peter,
Hi thanks for your reply, I have already ordered that book because it also
was suggested to me in another ng. But thanks anyway.
Than please crosspost or don't tell this.

It is always so demotivating to have taken time to search for somebody and
than to get this kind of replies.

I think the reply was spot on and in some respect it confirmed that Alex's
suggestion was a good one. His post(s) is not crosspost, it is multipost...
;-)

I fail to se the problem in this case, unless I'm missing a number of the
ngs that the question was posted to. I for one, at times, post a question
phrased the wrong way, or post it to the wrong group, and then I repost.
Couldn't that have been the case here?

With regards to the books in question, why would you do a search? Surely the
question was about the content of the book, and if you need to do a search,
you haven't read it, or otherwise "qualify" to reply to the original
question, right?

Yes, and if Peter, which is a regular in answering questions in this
newsgroups, had done a crosspost instead of a multipost, than we had seen
direct that the answer was already there.

That the answer was there is something I normally see from Peter because he
is forever very polite, however in my opinion should you do a crosspost or
don't tell that you had already the answer and just say thanks.

That was all I was telling to Peter, just as an advice nothing more.

Hi Cor,

your advice is noted :)

and I know what you mean, because I've had it a couple of times myself that
I was searching something and then found a post with in the subject the
thing I was looking for and when I opened the post it said: "I have this and
this problem" and then I get all excited because it's the same as my problem
and when I go on to read the reply to the post, it's the op saying: "I've
found the answer" and nothing more and indeed that can be frustrating :)
So next time I'll do a crosspost instead of a multipost.

Greetz Peter
