    DirectDraw does not exist anymore....in a sense. It has been merged with Direct3D to create DirectGraphics. It's much easier to fire up Direct3D and then simply access the frame and/or back buffer as you would in DirectDraw.

    RoD, thanks for the link

    Bubba, I read that yesterday... I was in doubt wether to use Direct3D or DirectDraw. I suppose Direct3D is the best option.
