I'm currently trying to make an application that captures a screenshot of a game window (say Nexuiz), and then displays it in my application as an OpenGL quad. Is this possible without hooking and stuff? Thanks!

If you mean reading pixels from another application you should be able to find the window handle and use GetDIBits. This may require the window in question not to be obscured.
