I have included ddraw.h and ddraw.lib and when I compile I get a linker error: [Linker Error] DirectDrawCreate, undefined reference or something like that, anyways, my compiler cant find the DirectDrawCreate function!! please help me !! The hackers must have gotten into the system through the hyperlink !!

Try downloading the DirectX 8 SDK from the Dev C++ site. With any luck, they'll still have the direct draw files. Remember to link to the libaries and put
-fvtable thunks

in the C++ compiler options.
