Anyone having problems with bitmap loading demos from the book ''tricks of the windows game programming gurus'' ? Demos considering about bitmaploading (DEMO7_10 ,11 and 12) are not working properly. Compiling goes just right and I have made also some error checks and ErrorReporting-function (just simple MessageBox) but everything seems to be fine. When program runs, all I get is a black (full)screen. Precompiled exe-files act exactly the same way. Bitmap-file is located in same directory with program. I have Directx8.0SDK, WinXP and Visual Studio ''98. Same exes have been tested with Win98&DirectX8 - same results. What could be causing the problem?
