Title: Bitmap Background
Post by: Dantheman10110 on March 15, 2003, 01:02:46 PM
How do I import a bitmap background for a game? Do I need a Library or am I just missing some key feature?

try and only post these things in one forum

ugl, cosmox and dqb all have  bmp loaders.  there are also many qb programs that can convert bmps to raw bsv's that are easy to load.

the final option is to simply look up wotsit.org for the bitmap format and make one yourself, it's the least complicated image format short of a data dump, which it might as well be.

Well, UGL, which I feel is the best can be found at: http://dotnet.zext.net/.
