Try the EnumDisplaySettings and ChangeDisplaySettings Win32 functions. Basically you just enumerate the formats until you find one you like, then set it. You'll have to remember to set it back when you're done.

That is done in C. Win32 is basically C code, MFC is C++. But the Win32 API is C.

I'm wondering if there is a better way to set the video mode than VESA, as I am working in windows. Also, I hate DirectX so please dont reply with it in your answer. Thanks alot.
