Why won't DX7 let me create surfaces wider than the screen, I can have them as high as I want but it always crashes when making them wider.

I never had this problem in DX6 or below.

If you can't solve this could you suggest a good alternative

Thanks

On some cards it is simply not possible to allocate surfaces in the memory that are wider than the screen. Mabye you used to be using a different card, or when you previously used large surfaces they went into system memory.
