Hey guys I'm trying to make a directdraw program to output certain statistics but it's not drawing fast enough. Does anyone know how to increase ddraw update speeds?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe you are doing it wrong.

DirectDraw is used to render graphics in applications where top performance is important

I don't use DirectDraw so I don't know if that's really true or not. Here's the source of that quote.

I'm doing it correct. It's known that the update rate of ddraw is slow.

Then maybe you should be using something else. OpenGL maybe? But I don't know if it will be any faster.
