I found a demo source and exe file demonstrating how to access mode 13h. It doesn''t work (the source) with my compiler: Microsoft Visual C ++ 6 Introductory Edition. Can someone please give me a link or a tutorial showing how this can be done with my compiler? Thanks a lot, Doaal

Unfortunately, you''ll have to use DirectX if you want to change the video mode. With a Windows app, you can''t directly access the VGA hardware to switch to mode 13h. If you want to do graphics programming, I would recommend Allegro.

In windows, the GDI prevents access to the graphics card. You could disable the GDI (don''t worry too much about this one), use a dos compiler, such as djgpp, use DirectX like Martee said, or you could use the ChangeDisplaySettings function.

But... the demo was intended for dos. Use djgpp.

This is why AP''s have a bad reputation.
