i created a flip-complex chain through the DIRECTX. The chain consists from 4 off-screen surfaces. What i want is becide the BackBuffer surface pointer to get the LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE pointer for the other surfaces of the chain. I do not want to shift the chain through the flip command. I just want to be able to write con-current into all the surfaces of the chain and then to rotate them through the flip command. How do i do that?
