I am using C++ and Allegro for this. I have created some games in Allegro but none have had any mouse support so now I am trying to do a simple test of the mouse and i cant seem to get it to work. It compiles fine but i get a runtime error. Can anyone maybe help me out here and tell me whats going on. when i debug it .. my program "craps out" at the lines of draw_sprite() and blit(). Im not sure where exactly the problem is.
#include <allegro.h>

BITMAP* buffer;
BITMAP* cursor;


int main() 
{ 
        
 allegro_init();      
 set_color_depth(24);
 set_gfx_mode(GFX_AUTODETECT_WINDOWED, 640, 480, 0, 0);
 install_keyboard();
 install_mouse();
 install_timer();
 
 buffer = create_bitmap(640,480);
 clear_bitmap(buffer);
 
 cursor = create_bitmap(16,16);
 clear_bitmap(cursor);
 cursor = load_bitmap("cursor.bmp", 0);
 
 while(!key[KEY_ESC])
 {
  clear_bitmap(buffer);
  textprintf(buffer, font, 10, 10, makecol(255,255,255), "x pos = %d   y pos = %d", mouse_x, mouse_y);
  
  draw_sprite(buffer, cursor, mouse_x, mouse_y);
  blit(buffer, screen , 0, 0, 0, 0, 640, 480);
  
 }
 
 destroy_bitmap(buffer);
 buffer = NULL;
 destroy_bitmap(cursor);
 cursor = NULL;
 
 allegro_exit();
 return 0;     
}     

// Some Allegro magic to deal with WinMain().
END_OF_MAIN();



thanks in advance [Edited by - rherm23 on June 27, 2006 1:37:57 PM]
