    Overlaying a Full Screen Program

    I was wondering if anybody knows an easy way to draw over a full screen program, lines pixels etc...

    I know this is possible because my keyboard software flashes *caps lock on* when i'm playing a game if I turn it on. Once I figure out how do do this the only thing I'm worried about are how the text flickers.

    I have not done too much programming, just made webgames in macromedia, actionscript.

    Btw, i'm using Dev C++

    Hmmm, I guess it's too complicated for two paragraphs of code to even render a pixel over a full screen program...

    Anybody know what to use to open and edit .xfs graphics library files? Or if it's even possible?

    Perhaps you should look into OpenGL, sir?

    I did, I was checking out the code for making virtual screens and flipping them onto the screen.

    But I dont really see how that would help me. Because I'm trying to put something on the screen with another program...

    Unless I could somehow just overlay another layer over the game I'm playing somehow... Maby ill look into that.
