    Two possible ways I would do...


    1:

    1. Just get the bytes of a .gif.
    2. Draw it like any other sprite.

    2:

    1. Get the bytes of multiple images.
    2. Then just draw one.
    * Sleep...
    3. Get rid of that image.
    4. Draw the next image.
    *And then so on...


    Overall I suggest option 1!
    Goals:
    Green = Done
    Blue = Getting Somewhere
    Red = Not Done
    • Mouse Grid
    • PTC Method
    • Trigger Bot

    I'm trying to think of more stuff!

    those file are images with timers, that

    at thise time. show this image. few mili sec it will show a different picture.

    I am just re creating the effect in D3D.

    my ways are some what buggy i kno.
    Massive waste of memory. Massive overhead.

    There should be a better way, but it will not lag at all.

    Why is DX[T] censored?
    Apparently thats a MPGH competitor - DX(T)Gaming. So they decided to censor it without thinking .

    Your amazing method 1 doesn't work. /:

    Sorry to break it to you. DirectX just doesn't work that way.

    Topblast, you are incorrect. I also need to mention that your signature is clownish.
