I think the consensus is roughly "In FB you don't need to use ASM for graphics like you did in QB."

I thought I had trouble with the BLOAD once, but it was my own fault. I wrote a short program to display a BMP on my desktop, but it wouldn't display. I fretted for about an hour before I figured it out: Since I wrote the program on the fly and hadn't saved it yet, the directory was still pointing a...

8x8 or 8x16

Okay, so here's a n00bish question: How do I set whether or not I want to use 8x8 or 8x16 characters in whatever screen mode I'm using?

Bug or Feature? BLOAD before SCREEN

Okay, I'm pretty much a beginner, and lately I've been working with sprites. I wrote a small program to BLOAD a set of sprites into an array, and then display them. I had done this in an earlier program with the exact same set of sprites, but this time I put the BLOAD statement before I used the SCR...

Is it just me, or is that link in the OP broken for everybody?

In fact, the whole sitesled.com domain isn't loading for me. What gives???

I may be way out in left field here, but if your buffers were actually variable arrays, then couldn't you simply pass the array name to the SUB that does it's function on the buffer/array? That way, which buffer/array you make the change to in the SUB depends on which one you name in the paramerter ...

is there a reason that you can't use 24-bit bmp's, and a 24/32 bit screen mode? as there would be no palette involved, it would make those problems go away. Yeah, I mentioned that in my last post. I'm doing some stuff in the original 256 color screen 13 mode, which is why I was using 256 color BMPs...

I assume so. From the docs file: Internally, gfxlib always uses one of 3 pixel formats: indexed 1 byte per pixel, direct color 2 bytes per pixel and direct color 4 bytes per pixel. Here's a table to determine the pixel format depending on current color depth: Depth: Pixel format: 1 1 byte per pixel,...

So BLOAD implicitly changes the palette? That's odd. Yeah, I even found where it says so in the documentation (the gfxlib.txt file) How does it handle loading two 8-bit bitmaps with different palettes? I assume it changes it once for the first set loaded, then changes it again with the second set (...

What I should do is use a different program to create my sprites, one where I can see and set my own palette. But really, I was just wondering if there was an easy way that I could check exactly what changes were made in the palette (I'm beginning to hate typing that word) from MS Paint to FB. Other...

I think all image formats that have a paletted format store the palette info in the image itself. I was hoping that wa the case. Anyone familiar with BMPS want to give me the lowdown of how I find out? As for the changing of the palette... not so much. In point of fact, the screen's palette hasn't ...

BLOADing a BMP

Okay, I've made some 256-color sprites in MS Paint, and BLOADed them into my program. They work fine, but they change the color palette. I guess this means that MS Paint has its own 256 color palette, but how can I find out what it is? I guess this is a paint question more than an FB question, but d...
