Is there a difference between the Windows 95/98 Game SDK and the DirectX SDK 6.0?

Anyone?

If there is a difference, where do I find the Windows '95 Game SDK?

Are you talking about WinG? If yes then there is a big difference. The WinG just lets you think with "normal device" contextes. With DirectX you can manipulate the hardware. In addition it is component based (e.g. it is implemented with interfaces). If you are about to write a game better use DirectX.

No, I'm certainly NOT talking about winG.

Thanks, though....

Games SDK is the original name for DirectX SDK. So they are the same thing
