I suggest you ...

Intergrate DirectX SDK. So we can directly get started with making games. Without having to put them in ourselves.

It would be nice if you guys would intergrate the DirectX SDK so we won't have to define libs and stuff. And a DirectX Template would be cool, and handy for beginners who would like to make games with DirectX.

        Hi Riekelt,

        Thanks for the feedback! The DirectX SDK ships with Visual Studio, so you don't need to install it separately if you already have VS installed. Also Visual Studio 2013/2015 includes a number of project templates for DirectX Windows Universal apps. Please let us know if those are helpful to you.

        Best regards,
        Rong Lu
        Program Manager, Visual Studio team

        DX is already part of the OS - from Win 8 on it's part of the OS SDK - there is no DX SDK anymore. In fact VStudio 2012 is incompatible with the DX SDK (conflicting libraries).

        A DX template would be nice, but there are plenty of WIn8 DX game samples to start from.
