Hello All Just a quick question... How commes Microsoft does not support Direct Play anymore? The reasion that I am asking this is due to Direct Play no longer comes with the latest DirectX SDK. And I read somewhere from Microsofts site that the say to use Sockets insted of using Direct Play. Anyone know why they have done this? Thanks in advance Paul Kirby

DirectPlay was just a wrapper and your program will probably go faster by skipping the DirectPlay layer (cutting out the middle man) and just code it up yourself.
