Well I''m using DDraw6 and there is no functions for primitives(might be different with DX8). I found this kind of confusing but you draw pixels directly to memory like this. UCHAR buffer;
buffer[x+y*lPitch] = color; The buffer is the array of your screen. Say 640x480x8; You need a book or a good tutorial to explain it.

DDraw. She has double D''''s
