    There's still a lot of fun to be had in flipping into mode 13h and twiddling the framebuffer directly :-)

    You kids and your damn graphics libraries these days...

    If you feel that way, join me for a project writing an SNES game for the ZSNES emulator. 16-bit Assembly ftw!

    If we do a really good job, maybe we can even put it on a cartridge.

    No offense but I'm not a kid and I've written graphics libraries for mode 13h, VESA SVGA, and for protected mode SVGA using the LFB.

    The point is that the modern day graphics libraries are the culmination of the knowledge and experience gained during the primitive graphics days. Refusing to use them because they are modern is ludicrous. Just because the hammer was invented years and years ago does not mean we use the same hammer today. In fact we now have air nail hammers that use CO2 cartridges to shoot the nails. When working on a crew I never once heard any of the guys say, "Man these kids and their damned new fangled hammers."

    I was being sarcastic, but thanks for that thick paragraph.

    I do too much graphics at work to want to fool around with it at home
