You have to do it manually. Belive me, it is not even worth trying. Alpha-blending in DirectDraw will kill your framerate UNLESS you only use it here and there for small sprites etc. If you want to use alpha-blending and other nice effects you''ll need to make the jump to Direct3D. You will not regret it.
