Okay, I have been looking for information about programming in true color in DOS ( i love programming in DOS for some reason), but i have found very little. Does anybody out there know of any good sites that have this information. I looked in the programming section here at gamedev but did not find anything except AlphaBlending...
Well if anyone could help I would appreciate it..Thanx

I don't know if there is any sites, but i can answer your question.
What exactly you have problems in? Setting mode? Writing pixel?

You should look into VBE 1.2 or 2.0

It gives you access to all the directcolor video modes available on your video card and has a DOS interface (thru int 10h). (although VBE 2.0 doesn't find 320x240x16 on my card, but DX finds it. hmmm...)

the really shitty part is that you need to deal with DPMI services to screw around with DOS memory (in the first 640k.. heh).

it offers LFB though, just like good ol mode 13h!
