PCX 24-bit Format

I'm writing a program in TMT-Pascal to decode and display

24-bit Bitmaps. I'm having a bit of trouble interpreting the

layout of the pic. The ZSoft DOC I have on it doesn't make it

clear whether it does bitplanes at a time (i.e. 1 line red, 2 line

red, 3... 1 line blue, 2 line blue, etc.), or alternating lines.

Anyone know? I can get it to decode right, but can't get the data

to work correctly because of this.

  • i have code that displays all sorts of PCXs,

    including 24-bit ones. the color isn't exact,

    however, because it just uses a true-color palette

    rather than dithering down in 8-bit video modes.
