    Question graphics help!! for my game under turbo C

    Hi...
    I am developing a small game in C using the egavga.bgi file under turbo C & graphics.h..

    1) I just get 16 colors in the graphics mode..Is there ANY way i can get more..?!

    2)the images that i save using getimage() to the memory..is there any way i can save them as a file..possibly in some format like *.bmp . If yes,how?

    Please help..I have been trying to get answers to these from 'bout a fortnight,but nobody seems to be using borland graphics mode..but i hope some game programmers for dos must be using it..

    Thanx!!

    Tip

    Instead of using BGI (which sucks), go see the tutorials on VGA 256 color modes (mode13) at Brackeen.com. There's a link in the links section of this page.
    They have pretty good tutorials which covers both graphics and bitmaps.
