Are you creating a game for the Windows Store? If you’re looking for high-performance, you’ll need to code it in C++ and DirectX. These project templates give you a big head start:
The Windows Developer Content DirectX game learning template sample extends the basic DirectX app template with features that help you understand DirectX and C++ as a game development environment. Note that the Getting Started guide has more info on using this template.
The template adds the following:
- InputManager: Consolidated input from touch, mouse, keyboard, and Xbox controllers.
- Virtual analog controls: A basic virtual controller with tracked-touch analog control and digital buttons.
- OverlayManager: Add and manage multiple Direct2D overlays for a Direct3D scene.
- SoundPlayer: Add rudimentary sound effects and play music as background audio. Updates to Direct3D resource management.
