By the way, i think you have to use the LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE7
interface for it to work properly.

Post the code your using so we can see what''s wrong. We cannot conduct an effective diagnosis.

Ummm, okay - I am using LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE7, and it doesn''t matter where I use lock, it never works - here''s the code.

if(FAILED(Primary->Lock(NULL, &ddsd, DDLOCK_WAIT / DDLOCK_SURFACEMEMORYPTR, NULL)))
MessageBox(NULL, "ERROR", "error", MB_OK);

if (FAILED(Primary->Unlock(NULL)))
MessageBox(NULL, "ERROR", "error", MB_OK);

You may want to check your code. It should be DDLOCK_WAIT / DDLOCK_MEMORYSURFACEPTR instead of DDLOCK_WAIT / DDLOCK_MEMORYSURFACEPTR.

What version of DDSURFACEDESC are you using? Are you using DDSURFACEDESC or DDSURFACEDESC2? You should be using DDSURFACEDESC2 if your using the first one. Remember to set the dwSize member etc.

The error where the pipe character (¦ with the two halves joined up which means the logical or) is an error in the forum software, not in Cloxs' code. It gets turned into a / .

And it is DDLOCK_SURFACEMEMORYPTR and not DDLOCK_MEMORYSURFACEPTR as ImmaGNUman may have suggested.
