    DLL & Ressources

    Hi all.

    I've a question about DLL & Ressources onder Windows. for my little game i put the bitmaps into a DLL and i load it with LoadBitmap (...) in my program. Is there a way to load also other ressources, such *.gif and *.tga form the MSVC++ Resource-File? If yes, can someone gif me an example?

    Thanks & greetings outlast

    Not that easily. You can use FindResource, LoadResource and LockResource to access the binary data embedded in the exe, but interpreting it is up to you.
