There was a thread on UtilityBase (I think) about how to display bitmap images that are embedded in the executable. Sadly, the site has been dead as a dodo for more than a year now. What I'm after is this: I have a simple 16-colour image that I want to embed in the program and display in the GUI using ReAction. For certain specific reasons I don't want to use bitmap.image's BITMAP_SourceFile tag to load the image from disk, using datatypes. How would I best go about it? I have the image exported from PPaint as a field of UWORDs plus a corresponding struct Image, but how do I remap its colours for the screen the GUI opens on?
