Okay, was browsing the header files (namely the image one) and noticed a ton of internal commands. One or two look promisingly like they might give me access to the directX surface the images are stored on and allow me to perform operations using the directX sdk directly?

At first I figured internal = private, locked, no access. I'm not able to test any atm, but one person i was talking to reasoned that I should be alright, thats why they're exposed so you can use DX directly.

So im basically asking, are these commands even accessiable? and if so - are they *safe* to use?
Would like to know before I write any substantial amount of code based on them

Thanks

It's likely that most of them will work fine although some may cause linking errors.

All of these functions and more will be exposed properly in the next update.

Do the working internal functions also include the ones that are commented out?
