Is there any templates for DirectX C++ 2D game?

    Question

  • I am writing a 2D game with "GDC 2013 Windows Developer Content Direct3D Game Templates".

    The templates only support vs2012 and Windows 8.

    When I retarget it to Windows8.1, the directx surface only can show a black screen.

    There is also some build warnings.

    I think, may be the GDC 2013 Template can't work on Windows8.1 env.

    so, Is there any templates for DirectX C++ 2D game?

    I want to getting started quickly.

  • The download for that template set states:

    Note: Due to reported compatibility issues, we have removed the Visual Studio 2013 version of this template. The WDC DirectX game learning template is designed for Visual Studio 2013, Windows 8.1, and DirectX 11.2. It also includes new helper classes and has supporting documentation. If you prefer to use this template instead, you can create a GDC 2013 game template project in Visual Studio 2012 and import it into Visual Studio 2013.

    You could also just use the standard Direct3D template and then use DirectX Tool Kit's SpriteBatch class.
