Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Changing 24 bits to 8 bits display Post 16612 by larry on Tuesday 5th of March 2002 10:51:46 AM

killerserv,

Nope that did not work. I got:


# /usr/sbin/ffbconfig -res 1152x900x76 -depth 8
ffbconfig: Unknown option, -depth
ffbconfig: Unknown option, 8


I think that it has to do something with this command. But when I read the answerbook2 for this command, it doesn't says anything about setting the depth to 8bits.

Thanks

desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)					  Allegro manual				      desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)

NAME
desktop_color_depth - Finds out the desktop color depth. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int desktop_color_depth(); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the currently selected desktop color depth. You can use this information to make your program use the same color depth as the desktop, which will likely make it run faster because the graphic driver won't be doing unnecessary color conversions behind your back. Under some OSes, switching to a full screen graphics mode may automatically change the desktop color depth. You have, therefore, to call this function before setting any graphics mode in order to retrieve the real desktop color depth. Example: allegro_init(); ... if ((depth = desktop_color_depth()) != 0) { set_color_depth(depth); } RETURN VALUE
Returns the color depth or zero on platforms where this information is not available or does not apply. SEE ALSO
