Can I make one of those screen pets (like the infamous sheep.exe) in DDraw? Like, set the cooperative mode right, and just do a simple thingy? How would I go about making a thread that runs in the background behind windows and continues to write pixels to the screen even while other programs have the focus? ~BenDilts ( void );

Take a look at the the Mosquito sample from the DX SDK. It uses overlays which are not universally supported but are probably still your best bet.
