After a late start (Labor day off!) I got back to learning how to code shit again. Using my newly discovered assets I kept chipping away at the tutorials. I learned how to use directx to display 2d images and text on screen, as well as use directx to record mouse/keyboard commands. Amazeballs!
The one snag up for the week is putting my new found knowledge into use. The latest tutorial exercise has me writing my own function to create a mouse pointer in my program. I can visualize in my head how my program should handle this, it's just taking a while to double check all of my references, and I keep having to reacquaint myself with the rest of the code from the tutorial.
But soon, oh so soon, shall I have my dancing banana gif as a mouse pointer. That said, I am still not sure if my code can handle gif images. It will be google exercise!
