This isn''t a very good question to ask on the forums because it requires so much information. My best advice is to first get the docs for DX7, if you don''t have them yet. This will be essential for other things as well when you are programming DDraw. Also, get some programs that use clippers and blitting. I''m sure that a lot of the samples that come with the DirectX SDK will have some basic code you can glance over to solidify your understanding of what the docs give you. Sorry I couldn''t be of much help, but I don''t feel like rewriting what the Microsoft guys are payed to write.
