This ones been puzzlin me for weeks, but ive finally cracked it (with some research on the internet).
24 Bit bitmaps (made in paint) can be converted into Arrays, which could be used for almost anything from lemmings to sonic.
I don't know wether this is any use to anyone, but i reckon it could be adapted to make some good games!
This code could probably be adapted to create bitmaps out of anything! Anyway, if anyone is interested please ask me.
(And tell me how to add code snippets, im new to this forum stuff!)

Just surround your code with [ code ] and [ /code ] (without the spaces inside the brackets).

Well Anyway, here is the code for you all:
The important variables are pulled, the colour matchin was quite annoying as i was getting flourescent results for some time. note. If this doesnt work, and displays scrambled, then the bitmap might not be 24-bit or made in paint, this is the only bmp i have managed to load, but I am working on mode switching etc...

I've tried your code, but the image gets stretched, and it looks very much like a black and white image when it's drawn.

'lemmings' is an awsome game, some1 should make a retro of that, but i guess the contest is to close to ending to start on that.

If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.

the idea was used long ago by me to make smooth landscapes.

I just made a HUGE white dot on 640x480 black background In photoshop, and blurred it. that way, I got a nice hill. If i have >1 dots, I get nice lanscape!

Then I discovered how to normalize matrices, and desided to discard this method due to the size of the file.
