Ok I tried to run this for you, heres what I got from your source only changing the image:

First I compiled it to check for errors, nothing was reported so I ran the EXE and got this Illeagle Error.

DBP_PROGRAM caused an invalid page fault in
module D3D8.DLL at 0177:024d9f1c.

I have tried this now several times and get the same error, it does compile but will not run without this error so far..

hope this helps..

hmm after many more attempts I have managed to get part of the code working with some(lots) adjustments here and there, all wrong probably but really DBP was being a pain in the botty, I will leave the source here and comment on what was changed for you(hope you can understand it). the matrix stuff stopped it from running though and I presume is something to do with the Direct 3D but I am not sure. hope this helps a little further.

yes I can do that, but not until tomorrow as I have 4 hours sleep until work, when I get home from work I will look over it, if it is not sorted by then of course. I appologise for the delay, but really, I need sleep..

well it runs, I get two matrix, one static and one that moves with the cursor keys and jumps down if you press down and then back up (instantly) if you release, theres a static box on the static matrix and a small box that floats past when you scroll the second matrix far enough, I tried editing but my setup isn`t that stable with pro and I did something wrong that caused a crash, no idea what that second matrix is in aid of, lot`s of posts indicate that the matrix isn`t working properly and ground height doesn`t work, I have given up on major projects until patch 2 comes out

I think it's best to wait for the next patch before attempting anything large.

I am making my media and a cartoon intro for my first game atm so i'm tied up for a few weeks (which is lucky) which I hope will mean that I can get coding then with a fighting chance of things working

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.
