Hi I''ve been mesing around with BG2 infininty engine in order to understand how they make such maps. Well, guess what. Every area is a big picture, of more than 3000x3000 pixels. Converted to BMP it''s >50 megs. So the question: how do they put that in the video memory and blit it very fast, even if i scrool the map. They must be choping it, but how???
