ok so some specs first. I have Visual C++.NET 2003 and i just got my Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus(2nd Edition). I read the first chapter and installed the DirectX 8.1 SDK. But when i tried to compile the code things went wrong. I had everything well placed all the files where they where supposed to be. The Project Folder included: blackbox.h blackbox.cpp freakout.cpp ddraw.lib and all the MSVC files i could not find the ddraw.dll maybe thats the problem(tell me where i can get it) The code compiled(exept i had to change iostream.h to iostream or it wouldnt compile) and now i get these errors FreakOut fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals FreakOut error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _DirectDrawCreateEx@16 referenced in function "int __cdecl DD_Init(int,int,int)" (?DD_Init@@YAHHHH@Z) help plz
