Hey I wanna make my first game. Like Quake 4 or something....Just kidding
Anyways, here is the problem. I had a Creative/TNT2 Ultra card and couldn't get any of the bitmaps to load from Lamoth's latest book from Chapter 7. Finally I got them to load only when I set my screen to the same resolution and bit depth as the bitmap I was loading. These were fullscreen demos though, so why would this be necessary? I bought a Matrox G400 and no problems, not to mention I get 16-24-&32 bits now. Does anyone think the card was faulty? I tried 3 different drivers and all had the same results.
