First of all, what is "BitBlt" and what does it do?
Secondly, has anyone here ever finished an RPG or at least to the point where it is playable? I would love to see a sample if anyone has one...

BitBlt is an API call that is used for animation. DirectX is much more powerful, faster, and generally a better tool for making games.
The more I C, the less I see.
I believe BitBlt stands for Bit Block Transfer. It does what it says. Transfers blocks of bits around by using the device context of the objects involved (I think). You should be able to do a search on the web and find all you need on this popular API. There is also a demo by <font color=red>BillSoo</font color=red> that uses it in this forum called Tile (or something similar).

Do as orufet says and venture into the dark world of DirectX - its not as 'dark' as it looks images/icons/smile.gif, and is quite easy when you know the basics (especially for 2D). Though there are other methods.....
