I'm using BC++ 4.52 and I'm using the egavga-driverset.
This allows me to get a resolution of 640x480x16 with 1 page ... I would like at least 256 colors and if possible at least 2 pages. Where do I start looking ? How can I perhaps write one myself ? ... any help is welcome ...
Tnx in advance,
Christophe VG

I presume that you are programming under DOS. BC for DOS comes with 640x480x16 as default graphic setting (there is one BGI you could try is IBM 8514' which is 640x480x256, but I am not sure if it supports your display card). However, you can change the display mode by calling int10 draw directly to the video memory. There are many sample programs on the Internet. I also have some programs which set the display mode and draw patterns. If you need them, tell me your e-mail address and I'll mail to you.

Under Windows, the resolution is setted by the OS and in general you don't usually change it (but you can still change it in your program by using directX routines).

1. tnx, for the quick reply, ... (yes I'm working under DOS btw)
2. well, I'ver tried that one, with succes, but it doesn't support multi-paging, something I really need, because redrawing a whole screen on one page, doesn't llok goed, so that one is out of the question ... So it leaves my question still open ...
3. I am interested in the int10 stuff you mention
(tofke@nospam.king.glo.be leave out the ... indeed you got it :) )
