Im writing a program in which I want to take over the full screen. Not so much as to clear the desktop, but at least be able to write to any portion of it outside the confines of a client window.
Id like to be able to do this without the use of Directx or other APIs due to incompatiblities with the NT platform, which will be used as well as 95/98.
I once downloaded a single executable from the net in which a cool cartoon character danced across the desktop. It was awesome. I dont think I had any DirectX drivers installed (I could be wrong), so I was wondering if this is possible to do with some sort of Windows Device Context, using GDI calls, etc.
Thanks for any help out there,
