Does d3d have a place in 2d games like Fallout or Command and Conquer which are more based from the textures perspective rather than 3d rendering?

Afternoon, EvanderCrovax.

It all depends upon what you'd be wishing to do.

A 2d game using 2D graphics: Might as well stay with DDraw.

A 2d game using 3D graphics: DX8.1 .

Cheers,

Quite a few isometric (3d tile) games use "3d-aided 2d"...
YES.

The obvious examples are the "Populus" genre games like Diablo, and the many "themepark" games such as SimCity, Sims, et al.

After looking at afew examples of 2d game genders ive came to the conclusion that 90% of the 2d overhead perspective games use direct3d in that they use it to render the landscape and the camera angle to further enrich the graphics potental. thanks for the replys and happy newyears Evil Homer
