Hello all! When blitting content to a DirectDraw offscreen-buffer for animation, I discovered the following limit: On some graphics cards (in this case the Diamond Stealth III S540 PCI), it seems like the maximum number of lines a BitBlt() supports is 4096. On other machines there is no problem BitBlt()-ing bitmaps with more than 4096 lines to a DD-surface. I cannot find any info on it in the MS-documentation, nor on any web page converning the Savage Pro+ 4 gfx chipset from S3. If anyone can help me find some info regarding this subject, I will be ever-thankful. Greetings, CondorWitte

offscreen surfaces are defaultly created in video memory where bltting functions are hardware dependant.

creating your surfaces in system memory will work for any size ranging to the size of the mem available or the size of a dword.
