Wow, that is really impressive, especially if you did the whole thing in assembly.

It runs pretty decent on my work computer - Pentium Pro 200MHz with 96mb ram and 2mb S3 Trio64V+ PCI video card and win98SE. It looks like a very good engine, but you need to get more realistic unit models, they look too computer generated (2 perfect and 2 much perfect specular lighting). Other then that, excellent job.

Really good. Ran it smoothly on my p2 400, 256 ram, gf2 32mb. Very impressive, a couple of years earlier and you would´ve had a hit. I guess nowadays only 3d rts are the ones that sell. But keep going. Who knows?

can you auto detect 16bit 555 and 565 modes format?
or you can auto transfrom 555 or 565 image format to
DirectDraw Surface format.
