1.) When people say "increased the quality by doing 3 passes" What does that mean? 1 pass = 1 loop though your main drawing loop?

2.)Although windows programing looks like mumbo jumbo from hell I am ready to learn it. What are some good sites?

thanks

Hi !

The number of time you send the geometry down the pipeline, for example you do multiple passes when you render shadows, one way is to use one pass to create the shadow volumes and then a second pass to do the final rendering, you can do multiple passes to create motion blur (render an object many times with some small transformation between each one) just to name a few examples.

Hi !

You can find most things you need to now about both Win32 and MFC at msdn http://msdn.microsoft.com

A good book on Win32 is not a bad thing to have either, there are lots of resource and tutorials out there to, make a search on google.
