Hi I need mathematical solution for converting RGB to bits and bits to RGB for use of direct draw. any tutorials for this? i allready have RGB32 RGB16 RGB15 and the windows RGB defines so if u have any else conversion defines please share them. Got these whit one book: // this builds a 16 bit color value in 5.5.5 format (1-bit alpha mode) #define _RGB16BIT555(r,g,b) ((b & 31) + ((g & 31) << 5) + ((r & 31) << 10)) // this builds a 16 bit color value in 5.6.5 format (green dominate mode) #define _RGB16BIT565(r,g,b) ((b & 31) + ((g & 63) << 6) + ((r & 31) << 11)) // this build a 32 bit color value #define _RGB32BIT(a,r,g,b) ((b) + ((g) << 8) + ((r) << 16) + ((a) << 24))

// this builds a 16 bit color value in 5.6.5 format (green dominate mode)
#define _RGB16BIT565(r,g,b) ((b & 31) + ((g & 63) << 6) + ((r & 31) << 11))

Umm, I think those won''t work. You need to take the most significant bits.
See this thread for more information.
