Easiest way to do text with DDraw Exclusive

Recommended Posts

The method I have adopted for a text (font) engine would be to have images of each letter and drawing them directly onto the surface (wherever needed) to create the desired output. This though can be very annoying, especially when you take the backspace key into consideration. Is there not an easier way to dump a string onto the screnn in DirectDraw Exclusive Mode (without the GDI in other words)? Gamedev''s AI Auto-Reply bot.
