    Question How I can Show the pointer of mouse int 800*600 256 color mode in Turbo C++?

    How I can Show the pointer of mouse in 800*600 or 1024*766 256 color mode in Turbo C using SVGABGI.BGI?
    And what is the address of the screen in 800*600 or 1024*766 256 color mode?

    You can't. Well...you could by using mouse functions, but BGI is not the best way to go.

    Check out the thread about using the mouse in 800x600x24 bit. It should be a couple of pages into the DOS section of the board. Instead if using BGI, check out www.brackeen.com to find out more about directly accessing the VGA hardware. Then get Ralph Brown's Interrupt List and also check sites relating to using VESA Video Bios Extensions. Drop the BGI if you are serious about programming in high res modes.

    bubba? is that you? [i'm guessing, since we're the only frequenters of this board! ] oh... yeah he's right... i'd say that doing the pointer handling manually gives you the best flexibility... and if you have a polybuffered system it's easy to include...

    Yes, that was me. I keep deleting my cookies and then forget to log in on the board. Since I do a lot of research, my cookies and history get quite cluttered.
