Can I get DInput to behave like WinAPI does? I''d like to recieve some messages or st. similar, but on the other hand I don''t want to do a comparsion buffer and go thru it each time. Thanks

Yup you can have your cake and eat it too...

If you''re doing DirectInput for your keyboard, just be sure to set the device''s cooperation level to DISCL_FOREGROUND | DISCL_NONEXCLUSIVE

Then you can intercept the regular win32 keyboard events in your standard message handler...(ie. for inputting text via a chat console or something)..
