Hello everyone, I have a problem. I am writing a little pong game in Direct X and I am currently just working on getting Direct X initialized etc. I had everything working okay and the image loading and displaying fine when I just had the primary surface. But now I add the back buffer and all hell broke loose. VC++ isn''t giving me any errors but I have little message boxes that I made are telling me the error is right after I try and make the primary surface. Bah! Now I can''t make my primary surface. I''m sure the error is something simple that I just passed over, but I have gone over this a bunch of times and I am not sure what I have done. I''m still learning and could really use some help. Thanks a bunch for taking the time to read this. Okay now my problem is around the bottom where I try to make the primary surface. I think the problem may have something to do with ddsd because that was changed around a bit. I''m not really sure. Thanks I hope this is how I put code up: /code /*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/ // SUPER SMASH PONG // Programmed by Jesse Barksdale // Art by Matthew Herms // June 2002 /*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/ #ifndef WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN #endif //------ Include Files ------// #include "stdafx.h" #define INITGUID #include <ddraw.h> //------ Image Loading and Initialization Flags ------// BOOL bInit=FALSE; //------ Global Interface Pointers ------// LPDIRECTDRAW4 lpDD=NULL; // DirectDraw object LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE4 lpDDSPrimary=NULL; // DirectDraw primary surface LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE4 lpDDSBack=NULL; // DirectDraw back buffer LPDIRECTDRAWCLIPPER lpClip=NULL; // Directray Clipper Object LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE4 lpTitleScreen=NULL; // Bitmap surface //------ Window Class Information ------// static char szClass[] = "XmplHr2Class"; static char szCaption[] = "SUPER SMASH PONG"; //------ Menu Variables ------------// #define MENU_MAIN_START 1 //main menu selections #define MENU_MAIN_OPTIONS 2 #define MENU_MAIN_DIRECTIONS 3 #define MENU_MAIN_ABOUT 4 #define MENU_MAIN_EXIT 5 //coordinates to draw the menu cursor #define MENU_START_X 32 #define MENU_START_Y 230 #define MENU_STYLE_ONEONONE 1 //game style menu selections #define MENU_STYLE_ONEONCOMP 2 #define MENU_PADDLE_NORMAL 0 #define MENU_PADDLE_FAST 1 #define MENU_PADDLE_STRONG 2 int menu_main_cursor = MENU_MAIN_START; //keeps track of the location of the main menu cursor int menu_game_style = MENU_STYLE_ONEONONE; //keeps track of the cursor location for selecting game style (1on1, 1onCOMP) int game_style; //holds info telling whether the game is 1on1 or 1onCOMP (1 = 1on1, 2 = 1onCOMP) int menu_paddle_select = MENU_PADDLE_NORMAL; int player_one_paddle;//holds the player paddle types int player_two_paddle; int menu_options_cursor = 1; //keeps track of the options cursor location //------ Game variables ------------// #define GAME_STATE_MAIN_MENU 0 //the main menu with all the selections #define GAME_STATE_OPTIONS 1 //options screen #define GAME_STATE_ABOUT 2 //about us screen #define GAME_STATE_DIRECTIONS 3 //directions screen #define GAME_STATE_EXIT 4 //shows an exit screen with info about us, etc #define GAME_STATE_PLAY_STYLE 5 //1on1 or 1onCOMP? #define GAME_STATE_PADDLE_SELECT 6 //choose your paddle #define GAME_STATE_PLAY 7 //the actual game #define GAME_STATE_SCORE 8 //the end game score screen int game_state = GAME_STATE_MAIN_MENU; int current_level = 1;//The current level being played int player_one_score = 0;//player scores for the current game.

The problem is you are trying to create a backbuffer application in a windowed mode. You need to change your cooperation mode flags to at least: DDSCL_FULLSCREEN | DDSCL_EXCLUSIVE if you wish to use your code as written. Or else
get rid of the backbuffer surface and create an offscreen surface
to blt to then blt back to primary....
