I''m just curious to see the code and if I could dissect it because I have no f*cking idea how to do directdraw and my future as an author has just went down the f*cking drain so if I could try and at least start programming again, I''ll have an idea of a career. Send it to -------------------------- Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away.

Well, if you''re looking to start up programming, and you want to use DDraw, drawing a line isn''t the best thing to be starting out with. If you want to do lines, you''re going to be working directly with the vid memory, which is a little more advanced.

I suggest for DDraw that you learn to get bitmaps up first and play with them. I found out that drawing a pixel is not all there is to making games early on. Go to Forums on this site and check the "Hands on Interactive Game Programming Tutorial."
