Hi, so im using L3DT to make heightmap bmp's for xna to read.

Here's the code that does it;

public float[,] LoadHeightData(Texture2D heightMap)
width = heightMap.Width;
length = heightMap.Height;

Color[] heightMapColors = new Color[width * length];

float[,] heightData = new float[width, length];
for (int x = 0; x < width; x++)
for (int y = 0; y < length; y++)
heightData[x, y] = heightMapColors[x + y * width].R / 4.0f;

return heightData;

Basically it's not reading the heightmaps correctly and i was wondering if anyone else has experience using L3DT and XNA, perhaps they can help me out.

Would anyone know how to read data from a 16-bit png? Im used to reading from bmps in 8bit, thanks to Reimers tutorials, but could anyone help me out trying to read 16bit png's?
