Hello, I am having some issues trying to get my program to read the bitmaps out of the prc file, it keeps seeming to just create a blank database each time. I added the bitmaps to it with PAR. but when I run the program it does not seem to work at all... the name of the file on the pc is anta.prc, here is some lines showing what I am doing:

@cid "ANTA";
@name "Annihilation";
@dbname "ANTA";
@ver "1.0";

library "PToolboxLib"

init_screen()
{
SetDepth(2);
bmp_file_check = OpenBmpDb("Annihilation");
if(!bmp_file_check)
alert("WARNING! NO BITMAP DATA FOUND FOR PROGRAM!");
FastBmp(0,0,0);
sleep(5000);
}

whenever I call the init_screen() func I just end up with a blank screen for 5 seconds, then I go and check the files on the palm and there is another database called Annihilation. So there is two of them listed with the exact same name and such in the palm "info" menu from the launcher...

it is not making any sense to me and I would appreciate the help :) thanks...

The OpenBmpDb() call will create an empty resource database if it cannot find the file.

Try OpenBmpDb("anta") or OpenBmpDb("ANTA").
