i''m making a full screen direct draw 4? isometric like game. (7 had no documentation because it was ''integrateded'' with direct 3d) i want to have ''night time'' when the whole screen gets darker. can i do this with any type of direct draw function or do i just have to getDC and manualy mess with the colors? (or lock, but then i have to figure out the pixel format) i know its probaly something simple i''m overlooking I just wanna get this done.

if you want directdraw 7 there is the directx 7 SDK

only run the exe, as far as i remember it will only decompress the files to a temp folder. after go into that folder and grab the ''directx7.chm'' (might not be exactly the good filename) file and delete de folder. You will now have the documentation for directdraw

hope that helps
Matt
