Hi. I am writing an in-house stereo program on w2k (msvc++ 6.0) with an oxygen vx1 card. Whenever I drop a menu down or another window overlaps mine, I lose parts of my images and I can’t find a way to stop this from happening. My images are >=1024x1024 and there are two different ones, so it takes a few seconds to refresh them. I know there have been similar posts to mine on this group, but not regarding stereo. I know that setting the PFD_SWAP_COPY bit would work, but I need a pixelformat that has these bits set specifically:
PFD_STEREO, PFD_DOUBLE_BUFFER, PFD_SUPPORT_OPENGL, PFD_DRAW_TO_WINDOW and .bReserved > 0 because I need at least one overlay (My oxygen vx1 has 2 formats that support these options, but not PFD_SWAP_COPY as well).
I guess what I am asking is: is there a piece of hardware that supports a suitable pixelformat that would allow me to fix this problem, or is there another more obscure way to fix this problem?
Thank you to whomever can help me,
