Programming a VGA card

lengy20lengy20 Member Posts: 6
I would like to learn about game programming but i want to start out by learning how to programming the VGA card(like registers and stuff). If any one knows where i can find references and tutorials for a vga card, the help would be welcomed.
Also, do i need to know any assembly to make vertex and pixel shaders.

    Those were some of my favorite links but this can probably help you out somewhat as a point of reference.

    That site has the Norton Guide online so there are tons of useful info on that site.
