    Assistance with graphics

    Hello, I've been searching around for a method to switch to a graphics mode of 640X480 with 256 colours. I've been able to work 13h, but the resolution is a little too low.

    I apoloize if this is a simple question, but I can't seem to find it. It's a wonder I even found this board. I'm so hopeless at searching the net.

    Any help that you could provide would be appreciated, and I thank you in advance. And thank you for taking the time to read this.

    depends, what graphic library you're using?

    in SDL its as follow:

    SDL_SetVideo(640, 480, 32, SWSURFACE);
    Compiler: MingW(IDE: Bloodshed Dev-C++ 4.01)
    Web Site: Zoo Crew
    Forums: Zoo Boards

    I'm using a DOS compiler... Borland C++ 3.1

    Is it possible to do it this way?

    Go to for a complete VGA graphics tutorial for 256 colours.
    tudehopet uses Borland Compiler 5.5
    and Visual C++ 6.
