Hi everyone,

I want to be able to load a 2D graphic of SVGA quality as a background and then move other sprites (with the same quality) over this background. ( similar to the PanzerGeneral or Heroes of Might and Magic format )

I already have seen this done with DOS console type applications, and compiled and tested such programs. I was just wondering if there are any good books that might explain a similar concept BUT, be able to do the above at various screen resolutions.

I have done some small graphical things with MS Visual C++ like a TicTacToe program that has resizable graphics, however this has only been possible using the built in drawing functions provided with the compiler.

I seem to have lost my way with being able to find information on scaling (sp?) backgrounds and sprites.

Thank you for your consideration.

Check out the DirectX SDK. There is built in functionality for resolution changing and scaling. If you need a sample post a reply and I can e-mail or post something.

Thanks!

I just picked up a copy of "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus".

The book ships with a copy of the DirectX SDK and other goodies as well

Looks promising.
