btw, im usign it at this point in a 2D fighter project and it is performing well so far, but the lack of documentation is not letting me implement a few "advanced" features and having me experimenting a lot by trial and error which cosumes most of my time....

Look for a DX09SDK folder on your hard drive (it should be the file you unzipped everything to). In there you''ll find samples and tutorials.

Aside from that, you may find these tutorials helpful;

direct draw is crap and old, d3d can do just as much, way easier.

Please do not post such a stupid reply unless you know what you''re talking about, and obviously by looking at your profile you have no clue what''s going on. No offence, but please don''t jump out like this thinking you know everything.

My book has examples of how to do simple sprites using Managed DirectDraw, as well as animating the sprites. It also shows the equivalent Managed D3D code if you want to learn how to move to the more powerful 3d api.

You can find more information here.
