Hi I started to do multiplayer on my rts game.... because i work in asm i dont have a program to generate GUIDs and it llok that IDirectPlay2A:Open wants either a NULL GUID or an aaplication specific GUID now help: 1.Enybody knows the value of NULL GUID ... because i cant find it nowhere...i wonder if its all zero...but it cant be that simple at Micro cant it? 2.Can enybody generate a GUID for me with your mighty c++ or point me to some free util that can generate GUIDS for applications.... 3. Anybody knows if there is anyway to test Dplay apps on a single machine...because i dont have a network at home and i wonder if i can also test my program there not only at office... Thx Bogdan

1+2. You can generate new GUID''s with Microsoft''s tool.
It''s called GuidGen and it''s somewhere in the VC++ tools.
3. Maybe you can create the server on your machine and connect to yourself
Might work.

The road to success is always under construction
