Can anyone tell me if there is anything wrong with this function? The bitmap never shows up on the surface. You can download the entire cpp file here. All this file is supposed to do is load a 128x128 bitmap of a penguin onto the test surface, blit the test surface to the back buffer, and then flip the primary surface with the backbuffer. The image however, never loads, and I don't know why. Please help me as this has been screwing with my head, and I must figure out why it's not working. Thanks, Niki

This what I can see for the time I have.
what is &image. ?
If you blit to off-screen surface, your immage will not become visible. You must blit into a primary surface (or back-buffer)

Mission 1 is complete we tought our children how to hate. Mission 2, the off switch does not work !!!

&image is the ddraw surface. I am blitting it to an offscreen surface, however, in the entire program which I uploaded to my server, it then blits that surface to the backbuffer, and then flips the surfaces.

Oh yeah, I have also included ddraw.lib and xguid.lib to the project, so it's not that.
