How to get high resolution in BGI

Recommended Posts

Actually, BGI can do better, but you might not want to. BGI is so slow...

Learn DirectDraw, you''ll be much better off.

(and btw, it''s 480 not 420)

Nope, DX doesn''t work in DOS. If you want hi-res graphics in DOS using Borland C, there are 2 possible ways.

1) Use BGI which is slow
2) Write your own VESA routines which may be faster(in terms of execution speed) but will cost more (in terms of the number of aspirins you need to take after writing all that code to handle bank switching and such).

So the best thing would be to use DirectX. You can tell I''m "lazy"
