In the directplay tutorial connect, which the example allows you to host or connect. They have both CreateHostAddress(); and CreateDeviceAddress(bool ishost); Why do you need both, like i see why to create the address thing, eg port to use, and/or address to use. But why do you need hostaddress when deviceaddress also creates the device?
