    See the links section for pages with tutorials. I recommend brackeen.com's VGA 256 color tutorial. They don't explain about tilebased games, but give a good start in mode 13 (320x200x256).

    How experienced in C++ are you? If you are kinda good, make your own engine. I made a tile based engine in less than 800 lines. I am working on shrinking it, so it won't take up so much space.

    PS: It is still in development. I need the function to clear the Mode X screen. I tried plotting pixels, but the bitmaps don't erase.
