VGA Programming

Hi.

Can someone tell me how to program the VGA card ? I know of Mode 13 and Mode X
but I don't want to use either of these. I want to know how to program in
640x480x256 mode. I know about bankswitching, but I don't want to use the
BIOS.

Please help.

If you don't want to use the Bios, you could use the vesa drivers... I have a pice of code for you if you want it...

Please send it, but I would prefer to use my own drivers. Isn't there some common port that most cards use to do bank switching ?

There is a driver called super256.bgi, I may send it to you to use 256 color

The super256.bgi driver will probably work, but it will be slow. If you have the source then that would help. I am basically looking for techniques I can combine with Assembly.

I didn't mean that my 85% unit was fast enoguh...

This is the reason why I wrote the ammount of asm I'm using in my code:

I better know C/C++ than Pascal and if you want trully a fast graphic you should write in protected mode.

C/C++ is fine. I can read C and C++. I can't always code it, but I can read it. I want to use protected mode, but I will do so at a later stage. First, I just want to create a basic game.
