Hello,

when it comes to this kind of coding it gets to the point were my head hurts.

Is there any simple walkthrough on how to run a form, and when the game I want it to run over it will see that.

Then the form will just display over the fullscreen game. Other than that I want to be able to handle all the form code in the form,
while sending the state to game so it can be updated.

It should be noted that I don't need .Net Remoting because everything will be on the single computer.
Looking for something like what xfire does it terms of popping up a window.

I don't think that you can display a form over a full screen game. that is why it is full screen... read the directx docs to find more about how you can overlay full screen games, I can't help you at this point

Well, I know it can be done because xfire does it, I guess I will make a plea there, because this seems to be like the golden secert that no one talks about how to do.
