It looks to me that Empire Earth accidentally frees the DirectDraw Interface
it's working with. During my look at the ddraw code, I've stubled accross
this thing in DDRAW_Create:
driver = DDRAW_FindDriver(lpGUID);
if (driver == NULL) return DDERR_INVALIDDIRECTDRAWGUID;
hr = driver->create(lpGUID, &pDD, pUnkOuter, ex);
if (FAILED(hr)) return hr;
hr = IDirectDraw7_QueryInterface(pDD, iid, lplpDD);
IDirectDraw7_Release(pDD); <-- Is this correct???
I haven't found any useable Documentation on MSDN, because it's all archived
content. But this Release Call seems odd to me. If I remove this call, Empire
Earth continues loading and bails out on some string operation, which I
haven't investigated yet.
