With what part are you having troubles? Could you show us some what you already have?

Tunneler runs at an undocumented low-resolution (160x100) 16-color video mode...
OMG! :shock:


What is it?
A split-screen two-player combat game running in an undocumented video mode, 1991, DOS.

I guess the developer didn't like MCGA/EGA/VGA. :)
Hell, why use a documented 320x200x8 mode or documented 640x480x4 mode, if we can use an undocumented 160x100x4!

Well, acctually I have nothing. I just have a couple of theoretical infomation. For example I find out that I should use something like thread, becauose there can run only one proces on the procesor at the same time. I would like to make it work under winXP and this OS offres lot of resources that I could use (API, VCL, OLE ... or what), but I dont know how does it work. So I ve got lot to learn yet, so I can use them. Or there is also another possibility, to create my own procedures, functions, components and not to use ones that OS offers.
