DirectDraw & Direct3D

Recommended Posts

Hey all, Here's a very basic question.. I want to start using the Direct3D API. I've written my own basic 2d graphics engine, and I want to extend it into 3d, so my first question is: If I'm using Direct3D, do I need to have DirectDraw up and initialized? I was searching around MSDN a bit for a way to set the display resolution in Direct3D but I could not find it. In DirectDraw, I would just use SetDisplayResolution (i think that is the name). Could I just use DirectDraw to switch the resolution, and then use Direct3D to render stuff? Dave
