Hi, I made a simple multiplayer game using directPlay and found directPlay to be pretty straight foward. However, I'm a bit concerned about its future...I dont have Vista yet but I hear that some of its components were removed, and they are shifting to some implementation of XBOX Live for the PC. I'm not sure if I want to shift to this, will it run on XP or only Vista? So I guess I have three questions. First, will direct play continue to work on future versions Windows? Second, can a game written with XBOX Live network code run on XP? Finally, is there some other network library that is easy to use as DirectPlay and provides lobby service etc? Also, does it come in DLL form as I mostly use ObjectPascal to code. Thanks, I'm just a newb hope you dont mind!
