Hi, i have not much knowledge about directx/direct3d programming neither about windows specific c/c++ .. so i don't have much of a starting point .. what i need is a way to hook into a direct3d game to display a message .. and if possible even catch user input so the user can create a reply .. The whole thing should be integrated into my Instant Messenger, i'm currently working on .. called Gamers' Own Instant Messenger ( http://goim.sphene.net ) so .. can anyone help me figuring out how such a hook could be possible ? i've searched through the MSDN but couldn't really find a solution .. i would also be happy about a sample application which just displays some text inside of a game or something .. thanks in advance & cu Herbert Poul

Start by looking into "inter process communication" for ideas about how to hook another process. After that look into how to display your message in game using DirectX or what have you.

the problem is not IPC .. i want to display a message in various direct3d games .. so i guess i would need to hook directly into direct 3d
