Something similiar to XFire...
« on: October 02, 2008, 01:24:55 PM »
So i've been wanting to use IRC inside of my games when they are running... so I dont have to alt-tab out and what not... I've figured out the core of what I need to do to make a program overlay a game and here it is:

   //scan for the game handle with
   bool WINAPI EnumDesktopWindows();

   //With the HWND you can access the DC with
   HDC GetDC(HWND hWnd);

   //now create a DC where you can copy the screen
   HDC CreateCompatibleDC(HDC hdc);

   //and a bitmap to access the data
   HBITMAP CreateCompatibleBitmap(HDC hdc, int nWidth, int nHeight);

   //link them together
   HGDIOBJ SelectObject(HDC hdc, HGDIOBJ hgdiobj);

   //copy the screen into our DeviceContex
   BOOL BitBlt(...);

   //access the bits with
   LONG GetBitmapBits(HBITMAP hbmp, LONG cbBuffer, LPVOID lpvBits);

But, what im wanting to know is: Does anyone else know what im talking about here? If so, lets work together on this... could be amazing since there is only currently only 1 IRC Client that works in games (Gamepe) and it doesnt work with NVIDIA cards...
