Hi, I''m making progress with my GTA style game, I even made my own level editor. The only problem is the colours are all wrong when I get into the game? I think it has something to do with palletes maybe? or Colour Modes? Anyway if you can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated. I''m programming using C++/Dos/Allegro. Thanks for your time.

well... what bit depth are you using? 8-bit colour? 16 bit, 24, 32? I''m assuming 8, but I could be wrong. 8 bit uses palettes, and so if you''re loading in several pictures with different palettes, they''re going to look different when drawn. Perhaps you need to alter these images and save them with a standard palette.
