Color Problems Posted by RPG Man on 20 Apr 1999 at 1:13 PM
This is probably an easy one, but how does one use colors in DJGPP above 0x09? Using 0x10 is a blue background with black text, and 0x010 is still the same thing. According to conio.h there should be 16 available. This is my first time playing with colored output (and DJGPP for that matter) so go easy on me. =)

Well, if your looking for color 10, then use either 0xa or just plain 10. 0x10 = 0x010 = 16 decimal. 0x means hexidecimal.<p>
