Hi all! Does anyone have any info regarding the development of those desktop buddy ( BonziBuddy etc. ) things? I''d like to make one of my own, but I don''t really know where to start, seeing as there''s no window of any kind... Tnx for any help, Jappie

Actually I''m giving a lecture at the XGDC covering everything you know to make these the 29th/30th of September...

There''s a window, it''s just clipped to a region by mask-blitting and using SetWindowRgn.

You''ll either have to ask further questions, go to my lecture, or wait for me to set up an online version (I just found out I was doing this Tuesday, so I have some work to do in the interim, because the code works, but it''s my personal toy so it''s utterly comment-less).
