What is it you want to do with it? If you need it for heavy-load graphical applications that use a lot of images, i stongly advise using something else than BGI, let alone borland 3. For non-speed critical applications it would suffice i suppose.

Borland never made a BGI that supports that mode. THere are however 3rd party BGI's that do.

If i remember correctly there was a BGI made by Jordan Hargraphix (c 1991). This BGI supports the mode you need.
I have it on my HD somewhere, if you would like, i could mail it to you, and then you could see if it actually works.

Akshyat,

You never asked for an URL, you just asked which BGI driver you needed.

Never the less, if seanowens answer is better, ignore seanowens last comment and just answer the question with an A or something :-). I don't do this for points anyway

TIP: ask your questions a bit better in the future, it might really help in getting your answers better AND quicker)
