I want to code simple plugin that draws on game screen. Here is plugin example from game creator: http://www.rfactor.net/downloads/utils/InternalsPluginsV3.zip This is VC++ project ready to compile. One of the functions returns window handle to games screen so when I code: //in UpdateGraphics finction HDC dc = GetDC( info.mHWND ) ; Rectangle( dc , 0, 0, 100, 100 ) ; ReleaseDC( info.mHWND, dc ) ; but rectangle flickers and when I use buffering it helps little but still flickers

What game are you drawing this over? It's very likely to flicker, because the game will be drawing in WM_PAINT if it uses GDI, or at any time if it uses Direct3D or OpenGL.
The only way I can think of that you'll get around that is to do your drawing just after the app, by hooking WM_PAINT, or by hooking the draw calls.

it is rFactor - uses DirectX. Can you give some links or code example to solve this problem?
