I''ve read through that huge confusing chapter in Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus on how to implement lines, polygons, etc. Did the guys at Microsoft actually forget to put in a simple function to draw some basic shapes? I prefer knowing exactly what every line of code does, and even after reading the code for drawing a line a couple times, I''m still a bit confused. What should I do?

DirectDraw isn''t really a graphics library, it is more of an interface to the graphics hardware. Thus Mircosoft is giving you access without binding you to one technique.
