Ive been looking for days now for any good DirectX wrappers for VB. Or hell, any DirectX wrappers for VB, at all. There seemed to be a lotta hubbub about HappyBanana's OCX EZX, but their site is down and I cant find it anywhere else.
Anyone here use or know of any good ones?? Thx yo :o)
im a little in the dark about "wrappers" .. could u fill me in because my idea of them seem different...

There are lots of good wrappers and engines out there (for the person who asked, a wrapper is just code that 'wraps' the functions of some more complex code, so for DirectX you would make a simple function to handle the more complex task of loading).
For a start you can check out Biohazrd, which handles DirectDraw, DirectInput, DirectMusic, and DirectSound at http://voodoovb.thenexus.bc.ca
If you want to check out some full blown 3d engines go for www.truevision3dsdk.com or www.revolution3d.de
thats the wrappers im thinkin of.. its just i didnt see the reason to download them instead of write them.. the ones i use arent that complex so i never though of usin someones elses...
