    SVGA graphics mode in MS VC++ 98

    ive been working on VGA graphics (320*200*256) in C, but now i want to move everything to c++, as well as using SVGA instead of VGA. i use ms vc++ 98, and i just have no idea how to set the video mode, or write to video memory. any tips?

    You cant write to video memory in user mode...

    Lookup a graphics library like DirectX or OpenGL

    You can also use VFW (video for windows), but DirectX which uses WDM (Window Driver Modle) and is more powerfull...
