     Fixed the UI problem. Easier on the eyes. What does DDSCL_ALLOWMODEX do?
What does DDSD_CAPS mean?
This will help you to understand what everything does and what everything means. It also has a built in demo showing you how to blit, draw text, and figure FPS, agian fully commented to help you understand. I want to make more of these cause it also helps me to learn but if no one likes them I wont. Please let me know what you think and maybe I'll make a bigger tutorial and do a tutorial on what you guys want, Direct3D, DirectMusic, DirectSound, etc. Due to filesize and until I get my cable modem, this one is relatively short, but VERY HELPFULL. Let me know what you think of it. Enjoy -James-

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
