hi Folks,

I'm looking for a short Vesa Protected Mode Initialization routine for FASM (with all that LDT , Selectors Stuff). I hope, that someone already solved that task 'cause I have some basic ideas about that but don't want to get deeper in that development - I aim at coding beautiful Gfx-Intro stuff ..

Thanks and so long

Why not code it for DexOS ?, its as simple as
Code:
 ;----------------------------------------------------; ; Do realmode int (vesa).                            ; ;----------------------------------------------------;      mov   cx,0x4112   ;vesa mode  call  [SetVesaMode]   cmp   ah,1    je    VesaError1 ;----------------------------------------------------; ; Load vesa info.                                    ; ;----------------------------------------------------;   call [LoadVesaInfo]   mov   edi,VESA_Info   mov   ecx,193 cld   cli   rep   movsd   sti    
To set any vesa mode, your card supports, from pmode.

Hi,

DexOS is a really nice project. But intro coding for the Gfx szene is better done on "well known" systems like DOS or Windows.

It seems, that nobody has written a VBE PM Mode init so I'll do it on my own and post it here Cool

So long

Do all of your init stuff (checking modes, setting a linear mode) from RM and all you need is a descriptor for the vesa buffer - if you're going into PM anyway an extra descriptor is easy enough.

I have done a demo that may help, it will run from Dos, just change one of the return to realmode by adding a exit to dos.
http://www.dex4u.com/demos/DemoVesa.zip
Note: i was called ASHLEY4 when i wrote it.

I hope you release the code so i can port it to DexOS, as a side note: you can run DexOS from ms-dos.
