I am trying to create my main menu screen. For compatability with older hardware I am not using textures over 256x256. The original image for my background is 1024x768. I shrank the texture down to 256x256 but when it is enlarged it is blurry. I have tried cutting it up into individual pieces and rendering 12 textured quads but I found this to be extremely impractical. I am thinking about loading all of the textures and then copying each piece onto a bigger one but so far I have met limited success with that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. -Corillian

In the project I''ve been working on I have splitted large bitpaps into smaller pieces that could be handled by the hardware at runtime. A class handled this automatically and the optimal size has been chosen depending on the HW capabilities. It worked fine for me.
