Microsoft announced today the availability of the DirecPlay API for PocketPC. This free download allows games created for the PocketPC platform to connect and interoperate, both in wired and wireless networks.
DirectPlay frees the developers of the burden of having to write network-specific code, by encapsulating it in a standard API. DirectPlay for PocketPC supports both regular wired networks and 802.11b-compliant wireless networks. It can be downloaded at no cost from Microsoft's DirectX site
