Does Crystal Space use Direct3D?

No, Crystal Space works with OpenGL (or software rendering) on all platforms.

Do I need a C++ compiler to use Crystal Space?

Yes and no. To use the basic Crystal Space and Crystal Entity Layer source packages you need a C++ compiler. You will also need a C++ compiler to compile your own project sources. However, you can also use CELstart which is a precompiled application that contains Crystal Space and Crystal Entity Layer. And using CELstart you can make applications with Python or XML without the need for a C++ compiler.

Is there a free C++ compiler available?

Yes, you can use the free MingW compiler on Windows. To download MingW you need both the full MingW package and also MSYS. You can download both from this location.
