Writing DLL Files

  Mad Boy 18:38 17 May 2003

As some of you may be aware im a Software & Game Developer. Im making a really big game here and as i own Delphi 7 I need to know if any of you guys know how to write a DLL to disable the print screen button so noone can rip my graphics. I have a stay on Top DLL but i need to know how to disable the print screen button.

All Help Appreciated Thanks!

I'm not trying to put any downers on your project but even the biggest corporations have not been able to stop copying/piracy/cracking etc so unless you've reinvented the wheel you're going to have to live with people ripping your graphics.

Good luck with the software anyhow. I hope it's great.

Came across some info once that advised using multi layers and hooks but when you consider lots of people have digital cameras you could be wasting your time.
