Tunnels & Things


Tunnels & Things by Robert Rayment:
The simplicity of this appeals to me. Draw to a byte array and blit it to the form using StretchDIBits. The advantage of StretchDIBits is that it can take a pointer to the byte drawing surface and to a palette. It can be as close as VB gets to direct screen addressing similar to the old DOS Screen 13, only better. It is no competitor to DirectX but is very much simpler and pretty fast. The demonstration shows various tunnels, MMX scrolling, Plasma, Fire etc. Drawing is done using VB and animation using assembler (assembler doesn't have to be used but I prefer it). BTW please do not contaminate my progs with the prurient Option Explicit !! Zip file is 63KB.
