Greetings,
some people say directdraw (2d) and opengl does in no cercumstances work toghether. Other people say it may work to directly render to a direct draw surface using opengl.
Nobody knows on what it depends as it seems...

However i've found a library called MGL that allows to directly render to a direct draw surface. (sounds too good to be true http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif ) Here's a link to it: http://www.scitechsoft.com/dp_mgl.html

Althought i hav'nt tested it yet, i thought i better let you know because there are a lot of people that mess around with direct draw and opengl...

Hi !

It is possible to render OpenGL output to DirectDraw, BUT it's a bit tricky and you might loose all hardware acceleration if you do it.
