There is nothing easy or simple about Direct Play. Nothing.

Networking is the hardest thing in programming, at least in the majority of people''s views.

So this is what I advise.... take the sample code from the dx8 docs (the wave message program) and modify it for your needs. It still takes a little work but you should get it in the end and understand it a little better.

This is probably the easiest way to get dp networking in your app.

Also make sure you use dx8 and not an earlier version, it is much better, the others do not perform as well.

Hope this helps,
