U think it is easy getting it work. no it is not
even under NT4 it got 3d api and other interface direcly into directdraw and
alot other function. is not simple matter that u think. it is a com
interface and alot of
function need to be implement before it even can run a simple example.
and we are not there yet in reactos. and only few hardware api are inplement
in
win32k and in gdi32.dll in ros. we need getting our ddraw.dll working in
windows
before we can continue on devloping the kernel part now. and figout how
windows
creating so call surface from directdraw inteface HAL.
