Using Directx RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    Forgive me if this isn't the correct place for this post, but I'm new to these things and not really sure where to turn for help.  Basically what I want to do is create some simple 2D graphics for HUD instruments.  Using the built in graphics of C# I can easily draw and operate the instruments I am after.  The trouble is that at the refresh rate I am using (20Hz) the drawing code runs so inefficiently the CPU gets loaded to ~50%, even just updating text values.  Clearly something has to change.  I've been looking for a guide to using directx for simple 2D drawings, but so far I have been unable to find anything.  Can someone please recommend some sources, or possibility another alternative to directx for 2D?
