Thanks for the update. Looks nice (and thanks for the docu link). Did you test yourself with a 8 bit Radeon HD screen? Here I have some strange colour effects (nothing severe, though). 16 or 32 bit screen modes seem to work perfect.

I am aware of that bug.. In the "Quick Start" document I suggested ARGB modes because of it.

To make a short, simple explanation, the code was written for an eight color screen (That's 3 bits if you're counting). High on my list is to change all image loading over to bitmap.class. ThIs will not only work better, but allow "skins" in glorious full color, up to whatever screen depth you choose.

Thanks for the feedback!

Oh, dear! Thanks for your explanation anyway, I'll try to read the documents more thoroughly...

Tested. Not bad at all. Few suggestions:

1). On running by default there should be sorting on the modes which should be choicen. Its that old confusing moment coming from old times but which can be fixed easy. If not sort it on resolution (like any can be ok) then at least on depth. I do that sorting back in times via ASLSM_FilterFunc + SM_FilterHook and hook function itself looks like this:

struct DimensionInfo dims;
    
struct DisplayInfo disp;

    
GetDisplayInfoData(NULL, (char *) &dimssizeof(dims), DTAG_DIMSdef_mode_id);
    
GetDisplayInfoData(NULL, (char *) &dispsizeof(disp), DTAG_DISPdef_mode_id);

  
//if good mode return TRUE
    
if(!disp.NotAvailable &&
        
dims.MaxDepth >= 16 &&
        
dims.StdOScan.MaxX == 640-&&
        
dims.StdOScan.MaxY == 480-1)

    {
    return 
TRUE;
    }

    return 
FALSE;


2). Window mode and make it default one :)

3). Add in screen-mode selection: clone workbench entry.
